Weird phase. Feels like I've gotten more done and stalled out on more things in the last six months than in years.

Had both our old cars failing at the same time in April. Getting it done: got one repaired and bought a replacement for the other. Stalled: sale price of the car we don't need will be about double with ~2 weekends of work but I haven't touched it in a month.

Was offered an old fishtank and stand, cleaned it up, re-painted the stand, have some plants and little fish and it's been going steady for 2 months now. Stalled: haven't painted the cabinet door for the stand, it's just been sitting next to it the whole time.

Got ahead of the heat and planted a garden a couple weeks before the last frost day. Had to cover it with tarps one night for a frost, but it's been doing great. Been giving away tomatoes. It's kind of a chaos garden and I haven't weeded it as much as I should but I don't care. I'm not giving myself crap about that tonight.

Joined a homebrew club last fall. It's been great. Buncha beer nerds and brewing nerds stand around and talk.

Been trying to make some changes with mental health and anxiety. Have been journaling a bunch and that's actually been helping. Even got a recommendation for a counselor. Stalled: have not yet set up a first appointment though.

Going on vacation to the beach in a week.
