i backed up some photos today to free up 35GB worth of storage space on my macbook pro, which pretty much constituted the extent of my productivity on this very grey and rainy thursday. i didn't see kevin at all today, other than briefly running into him in the kitchen. otherwise, he did his thing, i did my thing, and we never once spoke to one another. he seemed to waiting for me to finish making my lunch before he made his, and likewise with dinner. fortunately i work fast, an avocado egg black forest ham everything bagel sandwich for lunch, then a pair of hotdogs with homemade sauerkraut for dinner. it only took me a few minutes to eat, afterwards i washed the dishes and returned to my living room retreat.
i spent the rest of the day retroactively updating a few missing blog posts and then watching a few more episodes of moonlighting. yesterday my cough disappeared but it came back again today, i treated it with some cough drops.
i've started a new habit the past few nights. i have a hard time going to the bathroom (no.2) when i know somebody is home and they might need to use the facility. it's what i call "consideration anxiety" made worse by the fact that kevin is oblivious to clues that the bathroom is occupied and will yank violently on the locked doorknob. but i've discovered if i wait long enough for him to go to sleep, i can have the bathroom all to myself. i can use the facility in peace, not have to worry about kevin needing to use it. it's like the only time i can have a little privacy, besides also when i finally go to bed. of course this means it forces me to sleep later if i want to poop in peace, but it's a price i'm willing to pay. i've also started waking up later (10am) so i can sleep a bit more.
