Hi Guys! Happy Holidays

Okay, I'm BACK!

Christmas was an adventure.  I got to visit with my family --went to Illinois to see my Mom, so did my sister and her husband (my brother lives there with his whole clan), and my son flew out too.  Wonderful!  But heading back my flights were canceled, and I had to wait at the airport for hours to find that out.  Then a day and a half later I got to fly back.

Typical conversation:

"Will your boss be upset?"
"No clue.  But hey, not much I can do about it.  Even if he fires me . . . I can't exactly walk down to Texas."
"Fair enough."

Fortunately, the boss wasn't upset.  He understands that there are things in life you have no control over.  The weather and the airlines are among them.

ANYWAY, because of the delay, I am behind on ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING.  But I'm glad to be home. The critters are glad to have me home.  And all will eventually be well -- probably in time to start the new year.

Hope you all had a great holiday.

Household Stuff Today

I have a million things to do.  I don't feel much like doing any of them.  But I will do them anyway.  And while I do I may blast the Trans Siberian Orchestra's Christmas albums.  Then maybe transition into Doo Wop or Heavy metal (BIG fan of 80s hair metal).

And by the time it's done the house will be clean, stuff will be done, and maybe I'll be in a better mood.

I'm sorry I've been such a bummer lately.  I'm working on fixing what's wrong.  A lot of it is external--things I have no control over.  But I can control how I react to it.  And that is something I need to work on.
