Nothing Nada Zilch

Leave a comment

I have nothing left today. Work and a 3-year-old took what remained of the energy reserves I had. And I still have a full night of work ahead. Off at 6 am and then 3-4 hours of sleep before the company starts to come. Life is fun. No complaints this year. People around me have their health, We will have food in our stomachs and a roof over our heads.

So the likelihood of me slipping into a food coma tomorrow are high. I used to get excited about watching football but that also has diminished. What I’m excited about is the possibility of relaxing a bit, and ignoring chores, phone calls, and work.

I do have the cameras charged and ready to go for tomorrow. Might do a little food shooting before it gets devoured. Maybe some family and toddler shots.

I’m staying out of the weekend shopping madness. As I said, my plan is nothing, nada, and zilch.

Random Thoughts of the Day

  • It’s a good time of year to think of those less fortunate and act on it.
  • Sometimes when I think too fast I miss the obvious.
  • Nobody has told me to knock off early for the holiday in decades. Another perk you lose when working nights and holidays.
  • To all the travelers. Drive so we all can get to our destinations safely.
  • It’s hard to catch Macy’s Thanksgiving day parade when you work all night. I so look forward to that when I retire.
  • Not everyone is blessed with marrying a good cook. I’m one of the lucky ones.
  • Sometimes I feel like a cat. I feel like I’ve been given a lot of lives.
  • I don’t care how positive a person you are, all this killing has to give you pause.

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.
