The ‘trip’ before the storm (part 2)

Its the last day of vacation. Actually i’m on the plane heading back, which i do not usually count. However with this holiday/busy season shaping up to be my busiest i’m counting every day i’m not at my computer. Still grateful Dor the work. But with Covid i do not get out as much as usual so the week long vacation was terrific. Just to see people other than my folks for a long time was enough.

I biked 3 times. We swam; under the stars. Some games…

So i may a while until my next post.

The deer of the desert

We all were talking to my uncle from the back patio when javelinas started coming around the side of the house; around dusk Sunday. They stopped around the bird seed that mygrandpa pours on the ground each morning. And they just kept coming. We counted13 at one point. My grandparents have been there 34years and they even have never seen that many; captive ether. And yes these wild pigs smelled.

They were not spooked even when mom came down the spiral stairs that leads to the roof deck. One even came within a couple feet of Me to check out my walker. Dad labeled him the teenager of the group.

It was pretty remarkable.

Desert storm

Thursday, i biked then laid IN the pool for 3hrs. Friday we got my grandparents on a zipline.
terday was the first time i biked IN the rain…IN Tucson. We went out IN the wind and it actually felt good. The best time to ride is the eerie time before a storm we felt several drops. It was stead for all of 5min. About 9-10miles.

The ‘trip’ before the storm

The last 40ish days have followed this format: bike work movie. I try not to work on weekends. Which is becoming harder. 4.5 weeks ago i introduced holiday pricing for clients who want things done for… 3.5 weeks ago i realized that converting is now a full time job. So i began the process of temporarily handing BACHELOR’S IN DISABILITY to a good friend. 3 weeks ago i had a issue with my converting software that took two weeks to solve.

I am lucky to be spending a full week at grandma’s, cause this holiday season is shaping up to be one heck of a storm.

Finally! A Vacation

I am on my way to NH for my first vacation since this entire pandemic started. And boy do i need it. I continue to have a backlog of converting work and my BACHELOR’S IN DISABILITY project continues to move forward. I am extremely ready to create a ‘board of directors’ to help with some major decisions.

I am starting to bike the swamp again now. I am so glad that they finally repaved the other half of the swamp. They probably hadn’t done IN 25 years. The first half was done a year ago. To give you an idea, going from new pavement to ancient pavement is like going from smooth stuff to sand paper.

Anyway, 4 days IN the mountains with a pool and little cell service sound ideal.

Flipping Out over the new flip-phone

I got a new phone. The thing that makes this amazing is that flip-phones have finally recognized that it is not 2007 anymore. (cue “the hallelujah chorus)

My new phone will finally allow me to receive/send emails. No longer limited to being on my computer to get or type them. Faster to type on my phone. That said, the transition to pr edictive typing from T9 will some getting use to.

Also, sending a post from an email will hopefully allow me to title them now.

Live from the town pool which reached the may limit soon after arrived.

so where have i’ve been? I just had the busiest month of work since dog6i my thesis. I was on an edit for a celebration of 30yrs of the ADA. It was them hardest and most fun gig ever. I world with an all disabled group. From all over the country.

I still have a long backlog of converting orders. Current list will take until Sept October…and more keep coming. And I’ve also host my film project that i’ve got to get back to people on. So yeah… Universal was tooLong ago.

I haven’t posted since before everything happened. I started with some increase in anxiety and maybe little depression. As most of you know i’ve responded to Facebook’s attitude issue by creating TIM’S CORONA POSITIVITY CHALLENGE. The support has been remarkable.

Screen eye strain is a big issue for me right now. Converting is busier than ever and the film project is accelerating…

That’s all for now…eye strain.

Ok. Other than the fact that it was 10degrees cooler than we’d hoped (jeans and sweatshirt to the park, heated water saved the Waterpark) it was a perfect trip. I think we were just happy to escape Jersey. I talked to a lot of other people from up north who were there for that same reason.
For anyone going to Universal, “Hagrid’s magical flying motorcycles” is now THE ride at universal. Worth a 2hr+ wait. We also saw the Blue Man Group…no tp 😥

Ready to start working fuller days again. I here we are warmer at home and sun stayingu up an extra hour. Now I’m going to … 1st class
