THINK! Think and Wonder, Wonder and Think!

Another day another Dog Fight!

October 07, 2009
Aw look. I already missed a day. not a very good start to my re-start on life. in fact I have also fallen off my diet a bit and have not exercised like I had intended. I blame it on the huge headache I have had for the past 2 days, but maybe I have the headache because I fell off my diet and didn't excursive! At any rate, I plan on going for a nice long walk tonight.

I let my dog out this morning and she went under our back deck and promptly started barking at some kind of an animal. I imagine it was either a possum or a raccoon, but what ever the case it was getting ugly with hissing and barking and yelping going on. My wife and oldest daughter ran down to help me get the dog. We enticed her with some Salami slices and finally got her to come out of their and into the house. Of course, it was immediately decided that I should block all entrances below the deck (currently open under the two stairs. Great.

Work is driving me crazy. I am woefully over-worked. Way too many balls to juggle and I live in constant fear that I am going to drop one! Early mornings, late evenings and a number of conference calls late at night with Asia during the week. Plus side, got my new Taurus this week and it is incredible. I love gadgets and it is like having a new gadget with all of the bells and whistles. Nav/Sync system is fantastic!

Jury Duty tomorrow in Detroit. Should generate something interesting to write on here.

Back at it....again

October 05, 2009
Woke up this morning with a knot in my stomach. I have Jury Duty this Thursday in Downtown Detroit. I am all for doing my civic duty as a good citizen, but I was just down their last year and it was not pleasant. I am glad I was dismissed as the potential case was for sexual molestation. I don't think I could have handled that.

On the plus side that made me stop thinking about work so much. I went away up to my cottage this weekend all by myself. While there I did some serious sole searching and realized the best way to handle my current bout with depression is to address the root cause or causes. One is to get back in shape and lose this extra weight I have let accumulate. Next is to start back on the track of following my dreams. just TRYING to follow my dreams makes me happier. Hence, here I am , back writing again. Granted this is not a very interesting or exciting entry, but it is the first in a very long time and I hope the first of many more to come.

Writing is like anything else, practice, practice, practice and you will improve.

I am also going to take some time to pull together a few other projects I have been wanting to tackle. I need to pull together some of the stand-up material I have laying around and hit an open mic night. Get back involved with Improv and maybe tryout for some acting parts. not hard to do any of these things, unless I am too busy laying around feeling sorry for myself.

So there you go. back writing and hopefully putting something interesting on here now and then, but for the most part...practicing.
