Back to back

Leave a comment

No, I didn’t go out and raise hell. Quite the opposite, I slept. Yeah slept for about 10 hours Friday night and again on Saturday night. The rarity of such an event for me does not go unstated. I’m not saying it makes up for what little sleep I got the rest of the week. I’m just saying it was a great few days of rest and something that doesn’t happen that often.

Believe me, I’m well aware of the importance of rest. And when I get some time I’m going to make sure I get some sleep each day in quantities that suit my body and mind. I’m actually trying to do better at it now even while still very busy working hard.

I guess I’ll have to start looking at it like eating. Never too late in life to start healthy habits. Well, I hope so at least. Not that I need 10 hours but the 3-5 that I average is too little.

Another back to back was family luncheons on Saturday and Sunday. A really nice treat. Yesterday was celebrate a brother inlaws 60th birthday and today was just a lunch with our son and daughter-in-law at the Sunshine Grille in Fork Maryland. I really liked this place. Very good food and service. Plus sitting outside was something I had never seen before. A Morgan 3 wheeler.

Yet another back to back coming is a tough few weeks ahead. Once I clear these next two weeks I’m going to spend some me-time. And of course some we time with my better half. But first we have to clear this hurdle. And it begins tonight.

At least I’m going into it feeling good and hoping for the best. And when things aren’t in your control all you can do is hope for the best.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • The fun in the day is finding the minutes you can savor and enjoy.
  • I’m working by my mind is with two people with heavy hearts.
  • It’s good to evaluate your priorities often. For me its easy for them to get out of sync.
  • I have a number of desk, most of them aren’t clean. But I’m working on it.

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.
