Just a quick update. I used to have a lot more time for blogging and I did it to promote myself and my writing career. My job used to be "Try to be a writer."
Now my job is "get up at 5:45, have coffee, shower, dress, get on the road, drive to work for an hour, do IT for eight hours, drive an hour and ten minutes home (traffic), fix the house, car, lawn, etc, sit down in front of the TV and crash at 9:30 or 10:00 and pray for sleep."
So, things have changed.
I love the new job after a two week painful learning-the-network process now this and last week am having a great time. Second best job I ever had. The best job I ever had was identical except shorter hours and a 4 minute drive not 60 and started later.
Anyway, I'm blessed to have a good job in this economy but my days are literally ten hours long and with errands, chores, delays, appts, etc, everyday is almost 5:30 - 5:30 before I sit down to relax for a big four whole hours with my wife before bed.
Yes, I know, some of you are thinking, cry me a river, those with babies or harder jobs have it tougher, but it's a major change for me. I'm slowly adapting. More soon.
