Better Alfred Hotkeys with Karabiner

One of the better decisions in my work was pushing as many of my workflows as possible through Alfred. My brain is now configured that if I ever think “I need to do…” it just immediately opens Alfred and muscle memory takes over from there. Tonight I downloaded Karabiner and this is definitely going to […]

Another Day, Another Deadlift

Today Second trip to the new gym. Deadlifts and overhead presses plus walks there and back. Made some decent choices about food – the only irresponsible thing being a trip to Dairy Del in the evening. Grocery shop, dishes, laundry folding, straightening up the house all as a matter of course. Tons of time with […]

Back at the Gym

UofL has a small gym about a 15 minute walk from my house. We’ve meant to join it ever since we found out just how much cheaper it is than the Y. We finally joined on Monday night. Tonight was my first workout there and I had a blast. The walk itself is just enough […]

Nerd Recovery

Most weekends are pretty dull. We keep them that way. We prioritise sleep, go to the grocery store, and if there’s anything special it’s usually D&D with our friends. This is life because 2-year-olds like nothing more than to ruin plans so it’s usually easier to not make them and put on hours and hours […]
