Joseph Has A Question For You: What should Joseph do in his “computer room” in the early evening hours?

Now, the days are starting to get a little bit longer … and it may be hard for me to stay indoors after my “cut-off times,” but I’m doing a good job in doing so so far.  My outdoor “cut-off” times are 2:30 p.m. on weekdays and 5:00 p.m. on weekends.  I will try to keep myself busy in my “computer room” in the early evening hours … and I have a question about it today.

Here’s my question … what should I do in my “computer room” in the early evening hours?  I may clean a little bit and give myself “me time” while I’m in my “computer room” in the early evening hours, but you guys can give me suggestions as well.

This is Joseph’s Walking Schedule For 2020!

I have now figured out my walking schedule for 2020.  I am no longer taking my evening walks around National Hill.  Now, on weekdays, I will try to walk at various times between 8:15 in the morning and 2:30 in the afternoon.  Now, after 2:30, I will be inside of my home … and I will spend most of that time in my “computer room.”  I will be giving myself some “me time” during the 6:00 hour on weekday evenings.  Later this month, I will ask you guys what I should do in my “computer room” at 6:00 on weekday evenings, since I am not taking my evening walks anymore.

Now, on weekends, I will try to walk at different times between 8:00 in the morning and 5:00 in the afternoon.

Now, I will not be walking every day.  Sometimes, the weather might be bad … or I may just be too busy to walk outdoors in the first place.  If I am unable to walk outdoors on any given day, you will know why.

Of course, I will continue to walk to my mailbox on the days that we get mail.  I am not giving up my walks completely.  I’m just walking at different times of the day, that’s all.

Please enjoy the rest of your day, my friends!

Joseph Has A New Chair In His Computer Room!

On February 28, 2020, I said good-bye to my old chair, which was in my computer room for a few years.  It was one of the most relaxing items in my house … and, that same afternoon, I said hello to my new chair, which is from Serta.  I purchased it this past Tuesday at Wal-Mart in Washington … and I really like it a lot.  Believe it or not, I was able to try out the chair before I bought it.  They had a “sample chair” there … and I liked it so much, I decided to buy it.  The chair is very comfortable … and I hope you guys like it as much as I do.  Now, Serta is a company that makes mattresses and it also has their counting sheep in their commercials, so don’t be surprised if I just happen to fall asleep in this chair while I’m in it.

Joseph’s Moment Of Peace: I need some “me time” in my “computer room” at 6:00 on weekday evenings!

Now, I am no longer taking my evening walks around National Hill.  In a matter of days, it will be harder for me to stay indoors after 6:00 in the evening, since it will be getting darker after that time in just a few days.  Now, I am actually giving myself a little “me time” in my “computer room” at 6:00 on weekday evenings.  To me, it’s very relaxing … and it’s beneficial to me since Brady has eaten up my “me time” over the past few months or so.  I have to watch Brady on certain days … and it eats up my “me time” in a big way.  In this day and age, having “me time” is important, even if it’s just for a short time.  You can probably do it in a private room in your house or apartment.  Maybe you guys can give yourselves “me time” at 6:00 on weekday evenings, just in case you had a tough day in either work or school.

Joseph’s Raises The Collar On His Polo Shirt

On January 7, 2020, I wanted to try something a little bit different.  As you probably know, I like polo shirts a lot … and I like the way that they make the collars on those shirts.  Now, while I was wearing my grey Chaps polo shirt on that day, I wanted to put the collar up on my shirt.  I had never really done anything like that before, but, since we are in both a new year and a new decade, I wanted to try new things.  Now, I think that look was a somewhat interesting one to me.  I probably won’t do anything like that for a while, but who knows?  I may give it a try again at some point in the near future.

I also wore my green South Fayette Lacrosse pullover over the polo shirt on that day.  It adds more class to the look that I was going for this past Tuesday.

Joseph Is Not Watching PCNC Anymore

We are already one week into the year 2020 and the 2020s … and some parts of the new year and the new decade have not been good to me, especially when it comes to the shows and channels that I watch on a daily basis.  On New Year’s Day, I was not able to watch PCNC after being able to do so for the last three or four years or so.  It was on Comcast Channel 35 for a few years or so.  For a few days or so, a message appeared on a black screen while I was able to watch Channel 35 for, maybe, a “split second” or so … and, on Monday, the channel officially disappeared from our cable lineup.  Since I’m not able to watch PCNC anymore, I now have to change my weekday viewing habits a little bit.  In the mornings, I will watch The Hallmark Channel and CNN … and, in the afternoons and the early evening hours, I will watch just CNN.  That may be a good thing for me in this case, because, later this year, CNN will celebrate its 40th anniversary on the air.  CNN is on Comcast Channel 32.  Hopefully, I’ll be able to watch PCNC in one form or another in another location at some point this year, but, until then, I won’t be able to do so in my own home.

Just so you know, PCNC is short for Pittsburgh Cable News Channel … and CNN is short for Cable News Network.

Joseph Gets A “D” In A Good Way

Now, as you can see, the title of today’s blog post is “Joseph Gets A ‘D’ In A Good Way.”  Now, I didn’t do a bad job with anything in particular.  In the blog post, I’m going to talk about getting more Vitamin D inside of me.  When I went to the doctor’s office yesterday morning, the nurse who spoke with me said that my Vitamin D levels were low, but I’m going to try to change that in a good way.  This morning, I took a Vitamin D3 gummy from Vitafusion, which I purchased yesterday at Bridgeville Giant Eagle.  It says, “Take two gummy vitamins per day.”  Now, should I take two of them at the same time … or should I space them out accordingly by taking one vitamin in the morning and one vitamin in the evening?  I’ll leave that up to you guys.  Now, in this case, I would be getting a “D” in a good way by getting more Vitamin D inside of me.

Enjoy your day … and, next time, I will celebrate a rather unique milestone of sorts.

Finding the respect you never knew you had before

I would just like to thank you all for trying your best to say “please” and “thank you” to me as often as you possibly can.  It really makes me feel more respected than ever before … and, in the process, you guys are able to find the respect that you never knew you had before.  You guys are fantastic … and I hope you guys will continue to say “please” and “thank you” to me as often as possible as we enter both a new year and a new decade.

Joseph needs some false teeth!

As you probably know, I got two of my upper teeth removed on November 26, 2019 … and I’m thinking about getting false teeth for my upper teeth in the future.  I’m thinking about getting either getting flexible partial dentures or dental implants.  I don’t want my mouth to be full of metal, if you know what I mean.  I may have a new smile in both the new year and the new decade.  Wish me luck!

Joseph Wants To Switch Dentists In The Future

Last month, I went to Katsur Dental in Collier Towne Square for the first time since the Spring of 2018.  Now, I have been going there for the past few years now.  Before it moved to Collier Towne Square, it was in Raceway Plaza.  I also went there when it was in Raceway Plaza.  The building that once housed it is located near Wal-Mart … and, believe it or not, it is still standing there today, years after it left Raceway Plaza.  Before that, I went to Dr. William Syling’s office, which was located in Presto.  I also went to his old office in Great Southern Shopping Center years ago before he moved to Presto.  Dr. Syling’s old office was located close to where L.A. Fitness is now.  Years earlier, I went to a now-closed dentist’s office on Route 60 in Robinson Township.  Rita’s Italian Ice is there now.

Now, this Tuesday morning at 10:00, I will get two more of my upper teeth removed at the oral surgeon’s office in Peters Township … and I will be getting partial dentures not long after that.  Now, after I get two more of my teeth removed, I may consider switching dentists in the future.  I kind of want to go to the dentist that is somewhat caring and is able to listen to my needs in a friendly manner.  Now, I would like to go to either DiBartola Dental in South Fayette or Progressive Dental Solutions in Peters Township.  I would also like to go to a dentist’s office that has flat-screen TVs in the exam rooms.  This way, I can watch CNN or a similar channel in the office while I’m getting work done.  Of course, you never know which dentist I will be going to in the future.

Now, if I do need partial dentures in the future, I want flexible partial dentures.  This way, the dentures can just blend in with my upper teeth.  If I can’t find a dentist who will be able to give me flexible partial dentures in the future, I will find a dentist who can do just that.

Enjoy your day, my friends!
