Friday - June 16th, 2006

I should be ashamed it's been months since I have been here. I do have a good excuse. It's called WORK. I have been consumed with it. We have been working non stop 7 days a week for weeks now. So I haven't had much of a desire to even look at my computer when I get home in the evenings. I look it all day for 10 -15 hours. I am not complaining. The money has been great. But I am on the verge of burnout and I have at least two weeks left. Two weeks until the promise of at least two days off for the 4th of July. And it sounds like I won't be getting my summer leave. We were awarded the big New York Contract. And the boss thinks he needs all of us to get it done. Another good thing. Work for a department that was going to close. It's like a breath of fresh air for us that have worried for months now. And it brings the possibility of more overtime through the summer. It's great. I can live with it.

I still get my vacation which is set for July 8th - July 15th. Indian Rocks Beach, Florida here we come. I am so excited. It is much deserved this year. It's going to be a great time for a lot of reasons. My best friend and I are going together again reason # 1. I am taking my favorite niece and my sister too. We all so need this beach time. It will be great.

Not much really going on with my life other than work. And the anticipation of vacation. Health is on a steady flow. NO real bad problems lately. Manageable. Diabetes is in check. Keeping it under control. No weight gain or loss recently. Holding steady. Taking all my meds. So that is great. Just mainly very tired. Which is understandable with the hours I am working. I am taking my vitamins every day too. So all is cool in the health department.

Depressing is the LOVE, SEX, companion department. It is nonexistent there is just no time and no one at the moment. I wish it were different. I could have used a loving, caring person to come home to a few nights recently. And GOD could I use a GOOD Massage. Sex might rejuvenate me at this point. But not a chance of that. So just let that thought move on out of the brain. Hopefully I can update that department soon.

This weekend is my Class Reunion. I am busy. Busy working and sleeping and working and that is about it. I had a few phone calls from former classmates but I didn't respond. I don't have any desire to get in touch with the people left in my class. Years have passed with NO contact. Why jump at the chance now. The one and only reason to go back is gone. Kurt passed away a little over 3 years ago. I miss him. I wish things were different. But you can't go back. So forward I go. I like to think I have changed a lot over the years. In good ways.

I wish I could make time to see the New Sandra Bullock movie this weekend. "Lake House" looks really good from the previews. Most recently I have seen "The DaVinci Code" and "The Break Up" both major disappointments. So I am due for a good movie. If I can stay awake.

It's time to stop and get things ready for tomorrow morning. 4 am is just too darn early to think about working. Two or three cups of strong coffee and I might be awake around 7am.
I will be back again soon.

Ciao for now.
