      Then we went home. Time looked really good, not perfect, but nonetheless good for a workout and my other chores left at home ... then the phone rang ... father-in-law had "again" some problems with his computer, tv, internet, phone, well, I got the feeling with every device in his household. So I had to go over, I am a good son-in-law, and because I can´t say no
      Typicall isn't it? "Hey, you do something with IT, right?" Maybe you can fix my TV, Laptop, PC, mobile Phone".....list goes on. The funny part is, noone cares what your job discription is (Administrator, Developer, Tester, Project-Manager, Business Analyst etc.)

        Those all require the same skill set, right?

            YANA! (You started with mentioning the tardis...)
            Actually my grandmother in law is nearly the same. Once, she even thought her TV is broken because it didn't show the programm she read in a TV-guide. (She just looked at the wrong day) Ok, and my parents in law are similar, just with computer things. Sometimes I think they are just bored...

              Meditation Day 55

              cool-down


              another great day, and every devices of my parents-in-law are still working today, eventually because I reduced some rights here and hidden some stuff there, well, joke aside, just a great day and no support-calls, well, at least not after work ...



              tomorrow I hit day 60 of the cold-shower challenge - what a beneficial journey so far

              yoga and IronBorn felt really smooth today, what would Adriene say now? right: "Good Job - Awesome work - Namasté"

              One more day bees ... one more day ...

              Good night

                Sometimes it is also an age thing. I got a frantic phone call from a former colleague one night "I'm sorry my kids aren't answering phone and my computer is sideways help". Lol

                  'rin i'm glad you got that call. i can't remember the combination of keys that will do that - or undo it. its a great trick for prankster Admins who want to irritate co-workers who leave their computer unlocked.

                    It happened to me one time, thanks to Mademoiselle Luna's stomping on the computer keyboard. And yes I said stomping, because don't tell me it was unintentional, you little demon-cat you! - waving her finger at her supremely uninterested and unimpressed kitty -

                      Weekend!

                      Not much working out today, another headache-day, and I feel a bit tight at the neck, so I will take it slow today and come back tomorrow for a nice working-out session.


                      After work we went to our nearby outdoor store, I am on a lookout for a new pair of trousers for some time now ... ... always difficult for me to find the right thing, either it is too short, too long, too tight, too large, well, you get my drift. But today, after a long search I found a new one - so I think this makes up for the missing workout - because trying on different trousers is a leg-day in its own rights.

                      Now enjoying the last episodes of Big Bang Theory on Netflix and then going to bed, see you on the morrow bees.

                        Congratulations on the trousers. I hate clothes shopping. - I did manage to get into a couple of old ones today, one of them is a bit lose an 'all too

                          Still a stiff-neck today at the right side ... but it is already better then yestereve because I am doing a lot of stretching atm which helped me a lot in the past as well. We have a pain-specialist here in the vicinity who has a lot of videos online, some kind of pain-library - and what to do against it, even preemptively. Unfortunately the movies and the site are in german, otherwise I would have posted it, a real treasure-trove for me which always serves me well.

                          After I felt better I started if yoga feels good to contnue ... and it felt good, therefore I continued with Adriene. IronBorn was LegDay, therefore also no problem - followed by a nice meditation session!

                          Now I think I will help myself to a hot and cold shower - because this combination helped me yestereve also quite a lot, followed by another stretching session and then call it a day and enjoy my me-time. I think the next day will be even better, wish me luck.

                          Enjoy your saturday Bees - keep up your awesome work.

                                No "work" today, at least not "real work" ... I was planning on going home after 6 hours, because we had some appointments later on ... when I arrived at work I couldn´t start to work, because of a minor fire (which occured in the night) our workstations were blocked till midday ... well, and then when the workstations were released again, I only had 1 hour left of "real working" before I left again - so it was a nice start in the week with coffee and some nice talking with colleagues - especially because the workstation of my wife was not affected and she "really had to work"


                                IronBorn is on hold for today, no time left, therefore only the rest like Meditation and Yoga - tomorrow will be a new day with more time. Now: some chores in the flat left for us, happy Monday bees.
