Keeping the beast at bay

This morning started off badly for me mentally. For some reason an ominous feeling came over me which I couldn’t shake. I racked my brain trying to think of a reason. Maybe I forgot to do something? As the day progressed though nothing bad happened. In fact it was a good day mostly in the office. It just goes to show that depression is an evil beast seemingly striking with no reason.  I’ve been having a good week too. I won’t quite write off the week goal based on this incident but it definitely took a blow.

Today I will be more productive. There are a number of things I need to get done and some jobs I’ve been putting off.  Time to get on the case.

We definitely have to find some better spots for it. Have to hook up the laptop to it too.  Should be awesome.  Posted some pictures on my Instagram if anyone wants to check them out (not of the view through the telescope sadly). Tyrion continues to get better behaved for the most part. He is much better around the house now. I think he has settled into his new surroundings quite well.  Starting to feel comfortable with us. When it came to Sunday evening though, the clouds started to return. I really need to find some …
