I usually get home from work around 5:30 or so at the earliest. It depends on traffic, whether I stop anywhere on the way home (gas, groceries, etc.), or any number of factors.
Between 5:30 and 6:00, I usually pee the dog, get the mail, take whatever meds I need to take, stuff like that.
By 6:00, I try and be out the door for walkies.
I've been extending the walk time in an attempt to get more exercise. Lately it's been an hour, give or take a few minutes, so I'm home around 7:00-ish. Then it's feed the pets time, and feed the marmot time. And since I have to eat slowly, it's usually pushing towards 8:00 before I have time to do anything constructive.

I'm looking to increase my exercise time. That's gonna push things even later.

This is something of a realization for me, because I've been getting frustrated at the lack of stuff I've been doing during the weekdays at home, so seeing that I actually don't have as much time as I felt I did is letting me get away from the frustration by considering how to better plan my shit.

I'm thinking of abandoning the weekday evenings almost entirely, except for short-duration stuff like laundry, or dishes, or small maintenance stuff, and leaving the weekends for the bigger multi-hour projects.

It's either that or get up an hour earlier and do walkies in the morning, and we all know how gracefully I deal with early mornings.

    Replaced the shower head and stem. The new head is a lower-flow piddly thing and I'm not terribly enthused with the gentle-shower nature of it; I may…
