2018-01-18(03Th) Not so great, but she'll be better
[20:20] Today morning I've allowed myself to sleep-in (yes, whole twenty minutes), but even though, I was all distracted: I've taken a box with waste paper to dispose it, but then forgot it on the parking lot. Pizza lunch at work. Noodles with spinach for dinner. We've restored Elmyra's old skates, and they it Eve just fine -- This year she wants to learn to skate.
2018-01-17(03We) Adapt Adopt Improve
[23:13] It is third day and already corrective action needed in my Project365: I need to set rigid time frame, when I will be not disturbed. Managing distractions was easy, more difficult to handle is, that my circadian intellectual peak falls exactly in the same time of the day, when Elmyra is eager to socialize. I also think, that once a week I need a day, when I will be not doing writing, but only proof-reading, editing and putting down concept.
2018-01-16(03Tu) Słabo chociaż bywa lepiej
[23:00] It was snowing whole day. Seven hundred words revealed to be quite a limit, not so easy to write, when everyone interrupts. Strange thing: just exactly, when I invent a passage to a story, my Wife finds it amusing to start conversation.
2018-01-15(03Mo) 365 Challenge!
[22:00] I hereby attempt to write min. 700 words (3kB) of story every day, taking max. 14 vacation days, until January the fifteenth 2019. I’m also going serious with re-learning Russian. This is to fight permanent prescience of fail. I can’t stand it.
2018-01-14(02Su) Winter vacation
[18:38] We've slept in late, then did nothing. Resting and entertaining ourselves.
2018-01-13(02Sa) Home alone
[22:00] Мы проснулись поздно, но нам никуда не спешилось. После завтрака мои девочки уехали в Город за покупками, а я пошёл в соседний городок исправить причёску. В парикмахерской не было очереди, поэтому я справился с этом немедленно, и скоро вернулся домой, где занялся стиркой. В это время я »читал« Маринину (том Чужая маска).
[23:00] I dared not to ride my bike to work, as the rear rim could break just any moment. Little Eve had last day at school before Winter vacations.
2018-01-11(02Th) no more
[21:27] Bicycle statistics today even worse than yesterday, but this time it felt good and I didn't run out of stamina. I've been experiencing, however, terrible challenges with concentration and focus, both at work and at home.
2018-01-10(02We) Sławku, a gdzie jest właściwie Judasz?
[21:56] It was a tad warmer (or better said: less freezing) this morning. I've ridden my bike to work, and my stats were again a bit lousy. I need to do something with my running nose.
2018-01-09(02Tu) Agenda Cycling Forth
[20:12] So, I've dropped Eve at school, then the car at the workshop, mounted my two-wheel demon and attempted to beat my lie records-- with miserable result: trip time over one hour. Day at work was busy but satisfying. Meeting with the teacher also very positive. The car was repaired today evening, but I don't have any cash at home, so it needs to wait.
2018-01-08(02Mo) My mistake
[21:22] So, they said at the workshop to come on the eighth -- but February the eighth... I need my ride fixed before that. So, tomorrow it is definitely a bicycle trip to work, as I'm leaving the car at garage fist thing in the morning.
2018-01-07(01Su) Tidy up
[21:09] Sweeping clean after system upgrade was a bit more troublesome, than just copy and paste -- some of the applications were removed from distribution. I didn't touch yet all those requiring heavy source code tweaking before compilation, just basic working environment for sound and video processing, like AviDemux, so handy for just trimming lengthy recording without re-encoding.
2018-01-06(01Sa) Wir sind umgezogen nach UGU
[23:00] Today I moved my authors portal away from Onet servers. Will see, how long this will work, before another crash. I've also reinstalled Ubuntu, although my settings are gone, same as some application data -- what hurts me most is the screen notepad, but I just need to figure out how to restore it, I have full backup of /home directory.
[22:02] So, some major rearrangements: Just by accident I needed to log-in to one of my mail accounts by WWW page, and I've been shoved a big and obvious banner up my face: www.republika.pl is closing for business on March the first -- I was preparing to migration since some time, registered a domain et al, and now the time has come to just copy and redirect.
2018-01-04(01Th) Не повезло
[21:38] Про сегодняшний день я имел большие планы, но на планах и закончилось: где-то я не позвонил, там или занято, или нет термина, или »позвоните в понедельник, теперь не разбираюсь«... Гораздо лучше получилось Елмире в префектуре: Ей удалось достать удостоверение, которые необходимо для отмены договора страхования машины, которую сборщик лома взял ещё в начале декабря. Но всё остальное... Врать-ли в порядке. (detail not important only life important)
2018-01-03(01We) Soft start
[21:36] Ну чтож: сегодня утром я подвёз Эву в школу, за чем уехал на роботу. День удлинился, но был относительно продуктивным; даже если работа состояла в основном из ответа на просроченную электронную почту.
2018-01-02(01Tu) Fresh start
[19:20] I've waken up early, noticed, that it is a free day and went to sleep again, crawled from my bed first, when it was necessary to send Eve to the school -- and we decided, she'll go on her own -- although Elmyra said, I should go and spy on her, whether she does it right. I was reluctant, because we need to build trust between us, but eventually did as she said, unfortunately, she was right: little one was investigating each and every pond on her way, I needed to push her a bit. Beside that -- everything all right.
2018-01-01(01Mo) New life
[22:00] So many times at the breakthrough of the year I've heard a phrase: "New Year -- new life".
Day was slow. The party dissolved around 0330CET, and we've slept up to 1300CET.I had terrible hangover. We've rested, had leftovers or dinner, then we went home. Eve needed to prepare to school, we needed to wash ourselves and tidy up our place.Nothing to report.
