Soggy, sad, but looking up


This wet damp weather must not be good for my body or mind. Feeling like crap this weekend. But what I’m really bothered with this morning is the fact that I missed National Daughters day. My children are the most important thing in the world to me and the last thing I want them to feel is that they are anything less than the most important thing in the world to me.

Yes, I try to let both of them know each day of the year how special they are to us. Yes, I try to keep up with these new observances but the more I try to get away from Facebook the less I’m aware of these events. I guess I should go out and look at a yearly calendar and put them in my events to make note of.

Today I’m trying to turn this less than 100% physical hulk and dampened attitude around. I read something from an old coworker about how they just tuned out all the political stuff for the last 3 weeks. and we’re getting there sanity and cheerfulness back. That sounds like a good idea. I know who I’m voting for. Nothing is going to change that. So why spend time listening to this. Well, I do have to pay attention to it on my job but when I’m off I think I’ll just ditch the news except for sports and the weather.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • Being comfortable in your own home is very important.
  • I’m concerned that things are going to get far more complicated quickly and soon.
  • My better half made my day by fixing me some eggs and biscuits the other morning. Little things count for a LOT.
  • Sometimes you think you know someone.

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.
