I’m down to 5 more work days to close out the year as many of us may be, even though there are two weeks left in the year. Lots of company’s just close. Some have to remain open but the staffing levels are way down. Mine happens to be one of those 24/7/365 companies that never rest. I just had a few days vacation I had to use or lose. Next year like this past one my shift catches 7 of the 8 holidays again. That is becoming brutal. But as they say it comes with the territory. At least I’m not on-call anymore after decades of that routine.

Well I didn’t intend to start off this post with a negative slant. Actually I was excited I have a few days of vacation and can enjoy some time off around a holiday for a change of pace. We don’t have to travel this year. The house will smell great with many foods and deserts being prepared. I’m putting my last string of lights up today on the real tree upstairs.

Reach out to others this season and throughout the year.

Then a few last chores for the home and then the work week will be upon me. I will power through and close out the year strong. At least that is the hope.

Random Thought of the Day

Today I’m redefining tired.

Football is over saturated.

I love shooting and having a nice lunch afterwards with my Son.

I fully support the warming temps this Monday and Tuesday. I think I’ll have to get out and enjoy it. Who knows maybe even the top will come down on the car.

I’ll get back on track this week with some better content.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
