I am visiting Victoria in the late nineties. It is the first really good visit in ten years. I spent 2000.00 dollars on a car rental, hotel and other odds and sods. I stayed at the James Bay Inn for a couple of days and I flew back to Edmonton on Air Canada.
But I visited mom and dad. I saw Maureen and her 2 kids. I bought them all a nice present: rings and an Alanon book. I think I saw Deb. I didn’t see her kids. My sister Sue was over in Vancouver. It is an whirlwind trip.
Here I am at home in two weeks from the time I left. It is the best way to visit friends and relatives.
Morning routine with “strengthside”, a 20 minute YouTube vid. And another 10 minute one for beginners about stretching.
Either work or on my day off, writing, guitar, photography,hiking, other hobbies, chores like today (laundry, dishes, cooking, cleaning, and 2 hours of work).
I usually watch an hour or two of programming from various entertainment outlets.
I have an evening routine of winding down an hour before bed, take a shower and prep for work tomorrow.
Personal time 3 hours + chore time 3 hours+ work and travel time 3 hours+ 8 hours sleep + 2 hours exercise + 2 hours meals + 1 hour meditation + 1 hour mental exercise on elevation app. + 1 hour on miscellaneous (hurry,worry,negative self talk, socialization, vegging and procrastination, and much more emotional, mental, beliefs and behavioural stuff)=24 hours.
I continue to learn and practice doing no harm and doing my best.
