I’m doing the best I can to stay active at work. Things get pretty slow sometimes, and there’s not much anyone can do about it. I volunteer to take on extra responsibility by working help tickets and resolving additional issues. I even ran out of THAT to do. So I watched the Padres be swept by the Astros in a pathetic display of pitching and hitting. I’m not big into baseball, because it is a frustrating sport. And totally corrupt. But my team was supposed to be good this year, and they currently look like shit. They are sub .500 and sinking fast. 

Amanda and I have been spending long afternoons together and cooking dinner at a reasonable hour. She’s been feeling good and things are moving right along. I still have a lot to learn, but I’m getting there. And I care about her wellbeing. I love her for the proud and strong person she is. 

Our evenings end now around 7:00 pm when I start to get too tired to feel safe to drive home. I make sure not to let myself get too drowsy, because I don’t want to have delayed reactions to events on the road. So I got home tonight and crawled into my bed. I don’t mind having an early bedtime. I always did. 

Anyway. Things are good. I am doing well in my new shift. The day goes by so much faster.
