And we're back... Sort of.

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.


  1. Good to know you guys are ok, I was beginning to wonder if you got swept away in the storms!

    Welcome back to IT, you have a meeting with the Bobs in ten minutes.

  2. Also, you can still keep writing.

  3. It's hard out here for a pimp. But hey, welcome back, glad you're adjusting (however slowly) to your new life.

    Suggestion: spend less time in front of TV, more time writing (not just blogging but writing actual books/articles). Nothing wrong with relaxing now and then but so many people spend so many hours every god damned day in front of the glowing idiot box! It's criminal, I tell ya.

  4. Você usa perfumes? Quantas pessoas você conhece que usam perfumes? Muitas não são? Imagine se você pudesse ter uma renda extra entre R$ 400,00 e R$ 5,000 so pra usar perfumes? Seria interessante? Em menos de um ano! Convide seu amigos e Amigas!
