Hello, is anybody there??
Is this thing on? Can y'all hear me??
Wow. Three weeks since I've posted.
In that three weeks there's been a lot of working day shift for training (ugh) in my new job and a lot of switching back and forth between working the "front half" of the week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday) and the "back half" of the week (Thursday, Friday, Saturday) but I think now I have something resembling a regular work schedule. There's been a lot of driving back and forth to work that looks like this:
That photo was taken on the way home the other morning, a fact I'm certain of only because of the side of the road I was driving on. In the winter, the drive at 6 a.m. looks almost exactly like the drive at 6 p.m. That photo's symbolic of...well, a lot of things that I'd better not harp on too much. Y'all probably understand.
There's been a lot of missing baseball and following the off-season trades and being glad I didn't buy that Billy Butler t-shirt after all, since we traded him.
And finally, there's been a lot of denial about the end of the working-outdoors season. That's always hard for me, but it was especially difficult this year because I was hell-bent on finishing the outside of the house. I kinda left y'all hanging about how that went, so I'll fix that in the next post.
