Where did it go

1 Comment

I’m looking for where my weekend went just like these kayaks are looking for water. I get so keyed up at the start of the work week and I’m not sure why. I didn’t use to get this way. It dissipates when I start but the few hours before are brutal as of late. At least its a short work week ahead. One of the few holidays I don’t have to work.

Looking forward to the warm days where these can be of use.

So its family week for a lot of people. Actually I’m hoping for a low stress event even though we are having more than a few people over. Looking forward to seeing family and friends though, for it is the time of year.

Have you ever worked alone? I have and it’s not that much fun. But it does have its good points. Obviously I’m in charge. I don’t have to worry about what someone else did or didn’t do. It can be fairly lonely though. I’m a rather social person but I’ve also been able to survive working alone for long periods. Didn’t know I can do it, but it works out.

One real downside is it feels you can’t get sick. I’ve lost count of the number of days I worked through illness. I do have a partner now so it’s not as bad as it once was but when there is vacations or illness we are back to one person. Such is life. I’ve worked in big groups also and that has its ups and downs. The more people, the more variables and personalities.

All I have to do is deal with me, myself and I tonight.

Random Thoughts of the Day

My better half is a real good cook.

I like a simple life. Must have been that early influence of one of my favorite tunes “Simple Man.”

I have big plans for this week. Hope I can pull them off.

Football is a brutal game. I hate seeing people get badly injured.

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.

One thought on “Where did it go

  1. I spend most of my time on my own – but I am not alone (I don’t mean that in a religious sense). The sheer fact I have people in my life that I see at the end of the day, sometimes the beginning, makes all the difference.
