Hello Again

It's been a long time. I am back here temporarily, as KCL is having problems, and I really need to blog.

Where to start? Well, the holidays were good to me. I went to Ohio to spend the time with my family there. I drove out on the night of the 21st and stayed until the night of the 1st. I like driving at night like that. There is very little traffic to deal with, I can fly down the freeway, and I like that. I was nowhere online during the holidays. I didn't blog, and only got on facebook once for a short while one night. I came back from the trip with lots to write about, only to find KCL down again. That was dissappointing.

My son moved back into the house with me the weekend before I left for Ohio. I'm glad to have him home, but he was not happy at all about having to move back in with me. He liked having his own place, which is understandable, and he is upset about the break-up with his girlfriend of three years. I try my best to leave him alone and stay out of his way so that I don't annoy him.

Speaking of girlfriends, I still don't have one and would still like to have one. I gave up on the dating web site I was on. I think I may never find what I am looking for in a woman. If I did who knows if she would even have me? At this point I'd even take a "friend with privileges". It's hard fighting the lonelies all the time. I have become one of those people who can feel lonely in a room full of people. I wish that wasn't so.

I found out yesterday that my work hours may change drastically in the near future. I won't bore you with the details, but after three plus years on the night shift I could very well find myself suddenly on the early morning shift- 6:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. With my hour commute, I would have to get up at 4:00 a.m. at the latest every morning. That's rough for someone like me who is definately not a morning person. Sure, it would be nice to be home at 3:30 or 4:00 every afternoon, but I'd be so tired by then. Oh well, nothing I can do about it but deal with it if and when it happens.

I hope that everyone has had a happy Hump Day.


  1. Hey Buddy,

    I haven't forgotten you. I'll miror post at KCL once they work out all the bugs.

    As for this girlfriend stuff? I have often said I'll skip it in the event something happened to my current relationship.

    When you do something different and out of the box is when you will feel super alive again.

    Time for you to learn to surf...


  2. It's good to hear from you. I hope that you and the family are doing well and had a great holiday season. I don't know about the surfing. I live quite a ways from the ocean and this is NJ- who knows what is in that water. I'll stick to the music and poetry for now!
