The grind

Lynn is off to Saskatchewan for a week, and I am going to be looking after the home-front grind.

Looking after the dogs, the house, the store, and myself is going to keep me busy. That’s good though. The structure is good to have.

With any luck the fence, which has been under construction for the last couple of weeks, will be done by the end of the week. It will be nice to have that done, and have a contained space for the dogs.

Settling into the grind is hard. It’s boring. In our life today, we always want to be entertained. Between television, social media, and video games, it has never been easier to be instantly entertained.

Don’t get me wrong, I love my gaming, but I am finding that there is more to life than gaming.

The grind is part of life. We can’t be on holiday everyday. Hell, we can’t even be entertained every minute of every day. Getting up, and starting your day is part of life. Work is part of your life.

Lynn and I are fortunate, we are both able to do what we love, her with her bookstore, and me with my writing. That doesn’t mean that we don’t face the grind too. There are mornings where I do not want to get out of bed. There are days I don’t want to workout. Forcing yourself to do those things, while not comfortable, are beneficial. It strengthens your mind. It improves your self confidence.

I know I need to get away just to relieve some of the pressure that’s built up in the last few months, but for the time being the grind is home.
