Everything is so annoying to me right now

By | May 29, 2018

I finally got myself motivated and energized and bored enough to get out of the office chair for a while. It was hell, and I am back in the office chair where I belong!

This has certainly been a much less flooded spring for us. The happy fun pit I am so anxious to get back into is still well under water. The good news is that the current weather outlook suggests I will be able to get into that mud earlier than I did last year, but it’s going to be at least a few more weeks. I’m comforted by the fact that every trace of my adventures last year will once again be erased and I’ll be starting fresh… when I get started, anyway.

So my first trip through the bush this year… Was frustrating… Again, the mosquitoes are insane! We went from cold winter to hot summer in no time. It’s not even June yet and we’ve been in the 30’s (Celsius, yeah) more than once already. All the nice mud is under water. If I want to get dirty any time soon, I have to find another place to go.  I don’t see that happening, really. I’m having a much more difficult time getting motivated to exercise, which is just fucking horrible because I need it soooo bad.  But, it seems that trudging through dense bush is not going to be high on my list of enjoyable activities like it was last year. The mosquitoes, and the tree branches in the face, and the whole “trail” seems ten times harder to navigate for some reason.

Hopefully by the time the water clears up a bit more, I’ll have whipped myself into shape a little better. I’m definitely planning to clear myself a path through the worst parts so I can get to where I need to be without so many sticks in the face, and without making so much noise… And it helps to be able to move swiftly to keep the mosquitoes from piling up around me… The skitters don’t start to diminish until all that whole area dries out enough that they can’t breed as easily… But this is usually a late summer/early fall thing… And I am not interested in waiting until September and only getting 1 or 2 trips out.

So I’m frustrated. I tried to go relax in the shade with some friends, but it wasn’t happening. Too. Many. Mosquitoes. Instead, I’ll sit here and blog about stupid shit that no one reads. Today is a full moon, so maybe that has something to do with it?
