Happy Day!

……………………………………………………

It snowed last December, one week before Christmas.

We had lots of snow.

But that was it.

It melted away before the NY and hasn’t snowed since.

It’s March 4th now

I could live without 6 months of cold but if it’s going to be cold it’s supposed to snow.

Speaking of snow, the snowblower wouldn’t start this year.  Thankfully the snow melted away.  And since it hadn’t snowed again … well the snowblower still doesn’t work.  That’ll wait til next year I suppose.

……………………………………………………

Parenting is tough.  These two like to torment each other.  I suppose that’s normal but I could do without it.

It would just be nice to go 24 hours without someone upsetting someone else … please!

I’ve been off the booze for a while now.  Maybe a half dozen attempts at drinking a glass since June ’16.

Let me just tell you, diabetes sucks.

Well it’s more like the I-didn’t-know-I-had-diabetes part that makes “this” part of diabetes suck

I’m ready to feel 100% better.  And it couldn’t happen soon enough.

Thankfully though I hopefully got thru the worst of it.  Looking back I wish I would have done something sooner …

Although I do eat a whole lot better now than I ever did before.  It’s probably the way “we” should all eat … healthy, low glycemic, non-processed, high fiber, foods, no sugar drinks, no pop, no gatorade … no beer 🙁

……………………………………………………

While I may not have the flashiest of jobs I can’t currently complain.

I work roughly 20 hours a week.

I have just about all the flexibility I could ask for and still make decent $$$

And yet while I don’t get promoted and sometimes the highlight of being self-employed is just getting paid, every once and a while something kind of cool happens.

I was fortunate years ago to find my way into the Chicago Bears organization.  And while I may not have departed on the best of terms (f.y.i. long story short they hired some inexperienced kid to be my boss. it didn’t work out. i left. he was fired one year later … i don’t want to say i-told-you-so, but I-TOLD-YOU-SO), I still created a few lasting relationships.

So within the past week I reached out to a newly hired NFL General Manager and he responded right away with the likely opportunity to work with him this coming May.  Pretty cool!  Fingers crossed.

Okay … i should go to bed!
