How the heck did we do that? The latest version of “Get unfat” starts tomorrow. I was working out in the garage a little bit ago and finally got around to fixing my bike*. To make sure it was fixed I decided to take it once around the block. Now I’m sitting here huffing like an emphysemic. Granted we live on a rather steep and long hill, but still, it was a wake up call. Catching up to 30 soon. Don’t have a lot of time left in this (relatively young) body to get it in shape before everything starts going downhill.
“Yea” rhymes with way, say, play, tray, and hay.
That is all.
Okay, so the feedback on the green was split at best, so we’re back in black.
I’m in way over my head.
I’ve got about 14 different ideas for posts right now, but none have firmly cemented in my mind. Thus, no posts for three week.
I’m filling out employment applications and listening to music right now and felt compelled to inform/remind you: The Foo Fighters’ album “The Colour and the Shape” is still utterly fantastic a decade later. “Everlong” is one of the top 5 best songs of all time. Yes, I said all time. Deal with it.
We didn’t have a sitter today, so I took the day off to hang out with the kiddos. Turns out to be a stroke of “luck”. I feel like crap. I’m burning on the outside, frozen on the inside. Every bone and joint aches unto oblivion. (apparently being sick makes me melodramatic). At least I don’t have a fever.
Yep, that’s us. While I’ve been able to work, the wage simply isn’t livable. I don’t know how much longer we can make this work. I can’t really get a second job because the hours for this one are unpredictable.
Work itself is still going okay, I guess. A lot of it, so far at least, is assisting and grunt work. When I do get actual tasks, I typically don’t get it right the first time or have to stop and ask questions. That part really isn’t easy for me. I’ve always been good at whatever I’ve done. Ask me where anything is in the Office Max in Colorado Springs. I can probably still tell you to within 3′ where everything in that store was when I worked there a decade ago. I can lay the smack-down a decent computer-networking issues. Heck, if you sat me down to retake my Series 7 Exam, I could probably pass or come darn close with no studying, and despite not being on the front lines for over a year. (If that doesn’t sound impressive, you’ve never taken that test.) I’ve just always adapted easily, and typically risen through the ranks to be one of the leaders, no matter where I am. So, it’s incredibly frustrating to be starting from scratch in a whole new world, where I know nothing and am lousy at everything. I’m learning some stuff, but still feel like I mess up a lot.
Here’s hoping Bellevue PD calls soon. If they don’t, I’m not sure what we’ll do. God help us. (He will.)
Please know I have not forgotten about you, even though you have likely forgotten about me. Guess you’re not that faithful after all. :\nbsp; I’ve been meaning to update this multiple times, but keep getting discouraged from doing so. Just yesterday, I had a nice giant rant about Alanis Morrisette and her nonsensical lyrics; however, I discovered other people had already covered this ground, and with greater quality. I’ve got some ideas brewing. I want my return to be glorious, however. Until then, I shall leave you with this to ponder… Is a hippopotomus a hippopotomus or just a really cool opotomus? br /
