Still Workin On It

I haven’t forgotten about the meme or the other stuff I’m #workinon. It’s been a rough ride lately and really tough to get the wrench out of the gears.


My previous post was in draft and I had forgotten all about it. I had written it back on May 13th and thought I might tweak it a bit, but set it aside. That must have been the beginning of the funk. 


Finding a happy medium in a place that is filled with anything but happiness has been breathtaking…and not as in awe inspiring. It has been a struggle to break through the rut of what seems like, despair. I say despair because it seemed to be relentless. Usually I would find myself dealing with negatives, on a positive note. Noooo…not this time.


I’m angry with myself for allowing this to happen….this is not me. Sure there are times when we fall into doldrums, but I was getting dangerously close to not wanting to write anymore. It was as if I didn’t care…AND I KNOW THAT IS NOT ME!   



Going through my mind now, I see some of the things that has brought me to stagnant hood. 


Occupation-wise, I have been installing auto glass for 30+ years now….I’m tired. I like what I do….but I’m tired. One of the most rewarding part of my job that keeps me going are the customers we service. It is really gratifying to see the smiles and have a good talk at times while working. 


I think I’m burnt on my current occupation and deep inside, crave for change, something new. But we all know that these are tough times and jobs are hard to come by. Watching the evening news and saw that all those people will be out of work once this last shuttle mission is over.


Tough times…nuf said on that.


I bought a used bike this past Sunday. This will be beneficial in many ways. I don’t have to worry about gas. I get exercise. My mind will start functioning again. Can’t go wrong with any of that.


I’m still here and kickin’.

I could do this if it has cable and internet.

A Peaceful Calm

With the change that is quickly rushing into my life, I find myself at peace, a calm. 


The only thing I’m dreading is the physical part of the move. I’m liking that less these days…must be an age thing.


I have been in touch with the wife and things are heading in this direction as planned. 


I think it is time for me to start a dialog with the wife. I believe it is important that we know what is going on concerning this move, because this is more than just a move; I’m aware of that and that may be why I’m at ease….not really sure.


Thus I deem it necessary to at least bring the subject into the air. We will have time to talk before I get there, and on the ride home. 


I will admit that I have short moments when I feel like this…

But they pass…that’s just nervousness…and understandably so. We will not have been this close together in almost three years.


I have a lot of emotions and questions coming at me.

I find my self dropping a lot of scenarios into many of the questions, and coming up with as many answers, if not more.


But still, I feel no pressure. 


We’ll see what happens in the coming days…I’ll keep you posted.

It’s Comfortable

This was a busy weekend and fulfilling. A birthday and party which I will link to tomorrow. 


I thought I would have this post up long before now, but I was messing around with the pc. I opened it up and tried to get a couple of hard drives formated. But I think they are dead and useless. 


My DVD burner’s tray won’t open without the help of an inserted pin in the front of the burner. When I do insert a disc, according to my pc, no disc is in the tray. 


Now that I think about it, a lot of these components are considered old for pc standards. Some are over 5 years, some are older. I believe the newest items I have installed are my memory and my OS which are less that a year old.


This is not a good time for an upgrade although I have been thinking about it for a couple of years now. Some suggest I go with a Mac laptop. 


Whatever I decide, I will take my time and research. I do that when it comes to a purchase like this. 


I’ll make do with what I have for now; it’s gotten me this far, I’m sure it will take me farther….I know the pc repair guy.


I’m winding down this day and have some cleanup before I retire to bed. Sorry about the lack of pictures in this post, ….but

I do hope the beginning of your week is pleasurable in some way,

It is amazing how things seem to just fall into place. 

I noticed something today that brought me to the point where I gave in to my sanity.

I guess this has been an ongoing process that is finally coming to fruition. My emotional well being has taken a beating lately, but like magic it has taken a turn for the much better. 

It is always a good thing to be in good moods and have the feeling of peace.

It is good for the mind, body and soul. It leaves a mark that glows with appreciation. I just couldn’t resist falling victim to the change that is now coming into my life. It is something that has been dearly missed and surely needed.

The end result can only be fulfilling. 

The darkness has been pierced with light. Light that shines the way to safety.

Light that reveals which direction to go.

Will I think about how long this may last? I’m sure I will. Will I worry about it. I don’t think so. 

This is a ride I want to take for as long as it is available…and I know that it is always available. It has always been there.

I know that situations happen that’ll take me out of my zones…or try to.

But what I see coming over the horizon looks promising.
