Plans: work 2nd shift
Ziu/Tyr, you chained the Fenris Wolf that threatened the worlds. We can’t do that, but we can do other things, some ordinary, others heroic. Remind us of your bravery and your sacrifice. Give us the courage and strength we need to fetter out own Fenris. Keep us mindful of our duties, and help us keep our fears bound as tightly as you bound old Slaver Mouth. Thus doing, we may we share in your glory by imitating you. ZIU/TYR HAIL!!

Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: Got a call from the Vet first thing this morning. He wants to bump up Meeka's thyroid meds. Her thyroid is absolutely underperforming. The only thing keeping her hormone levels at what it is, and even at that it’s still below the norm, are the meds she’s been taking. Doc wants her hormone levels at least @ 1.5, 2.0 is optimum, and she’s nowhere near that. Hopefully these meds will get her to the normal range. The Vet even complimented us on keeping up her meds. I thought, well hel yeah, Meeka’s part of the family. We couldn’t do anything else. She’s be on both of her Rx’s (epilepsy and hypothyroidism) for the rest of her life. That’s a good harvest! That’s a good turning point! Again I must say, I KNOW if Meeka was still with her previous owner she would already have been put to sleep. I would say Meeka’s had a pretty good harvest!
Started an exercise routine…again. I gotta do something. I’m starting to feel my age creeping in. I called the VA about collaborating a core workout with a physical therapist. My PCP and the physical therapist will consult then return my call. I have had two umbilical surgeries; the last was a reconstruction of the first. My concern about any core workout is I don’t want to pop the surgery. I’ve been hesitant to anything; hence, the out of shape and age infected body. Anywho, I’ve revived my upper-torso dumbbell workout with three sets of six to see how I feel; alternating days will be cardio of some kind Everything picks up from there. Hopefully, with some hard work, this will generate a good harvest!
Work is going better. I’m finding it nice not being woken up by an alarm; when I get up I get up, but it’s never late. I’m also staying up better. Ah, herein lies a harvest of good effort!
Oh, btw, I, for the first time, have opted to work Sunday instead of Saturday for overtime. Yeah, I know I’m still getting time and a half, but if we want to do anything, Saturday is just a better day to do it; or at least there are more options. Nonetheless, we were told that they were just getting overtime set up, but it will probably be cancelled due to insufficient levels of work in the shop.
PM Prayer: Wuldar/Ullr:
Wuldar/Ullr, god of ski and bow, you glide through the snow-clad forests bringing death to game and life to your people. Remind us that life feeds on life, and that the beauty of the prey is formed generation after generation by the culling ferocity of the predator. Let your Yew-bow be the great World-Yew under another guise, so that through the spirit of the hunter, we may climb its branched to ever higher levels of awareness. HAIL WULDAR/ULLR!!
