My parents are on the road for the next 3 weeks as they cruise around Northern California, eventually landing in Sacramento around thanksgiving. I called them to find they had made it to my old stomping grounds of Carpinteria, where I used to work for the Boys & Girls Club. Fun coincidences, though I don’t have a lot of great memories from that part of California.
Today was a scoring avalanche across the NFL. I had 4 players go over 30 fantasy points, which is pretty uncommon. Nothing has been decided yet, but I’ll know where I stand by the end of Sunday Night Football.
So I went to my cousin’s daughter’s first birthday. It was basically a ton of people I didn’t know all standing around talking while I watched my fantasy numbers come in. I stayed for most of it, but I got to not feeling well and bailed before presents got opened. Not that Dylan would have opened them anyway. Or has any idea what’s going on. But I’m happy for them. It’s just not my scene, and everyone there is either married, with someone, or has a family. I don’t really have much in common with them, and I usually end up not having much to say. I’m not big on giant unfamiliar crowds where everyone knows each other and I know like 2 people. Sigh. But I basically did as much as I felt I could in light of my disposition.
Emotionally I’m doing fine. I was off to a rocky start at the beginning of the weekend. Like Friday night I was feeling pretty mixed up. I was needing a break from the work grind, and I got it, and now I’m doing fine. I’m still trying to figure out my drowsiness coping mechanisms but I think I’m getting on top of it. I’ve had a lot of coffee today. But I was also up at 4:45 am or so. So that’s going to stretch me pretty thin on the energy levels thingie. Not much negative stuff to report, like I said.
So I hope you all have a good night. I’m doing just super. A little tired, but you know how that goes.
**UPDATE 7:00 pm**
I’m in snuggy town. Feeling like sleep is sneaking up behind my eyes, inching closer to realization. I’m glad to be going back to work tomorrow. I really do like my job, and it’s not about to get any more complicated than it already is. I mean, next weekend I actually have to go in for training. And the weekend schedule has come out, and I will pick up 3 extra shifts over the next two months. Overtime baby. All of it over my 40 per week, so I’m jazzed to be bringing home fatter checks as a result. Just thought I’d pop by here one last time before bed. Ni night.
