Where I've Been

Sorry about the lack of post lately. Usually, when I haven’t posted in a while it’s because I’m depressed.

This time, that’s only partially true.

The anniversary of our first real vacation together just passed. The last couple of days have been a little rough. I still miss her, I still want her.

Mostly though, I have just been really busy. I spent most of last weekend out of town and away from any internet connection. Monday, I had to go out of town for work, and it turned out to be a 16 hour day. What would normally be a 3 hour drive home from my meeting, turned into a 4 ½ hour quest to find a road that wasn’t closed due to flooding.

Yesterday, I came down with a chest cold.

Work sucks.

The kids are still at their mother’s.

The last day it didn’t rain was about 20 days ago by my count. My yard is flooded, My grass is long enough to bail, and the cat and dog are stuck in the house and driving me crazy.

Oof. Big hugs, man. Hope you're able to enjoy a bit of a holiday today, if in no other way than pouring yourself a tall glass of something strong. Hang in there! Hope the projects are going well.

I know you miss the kids, but to have them, the cat, and the dog all bouncing off the walls b/c of teh Wet...

I prescribe hot toddies for the cold.

How about a tall, strong hot toddy?

Not rain and depression, we Seattlites have the market cornered on rain and depression.

One thing I have learned from several bouts of major depression is that it always gets better- Always. I also learned that telling my friends the truth instead of curling up in a ball and hiding helps it go away a lot faster.

Oh- and I'll take a hot toddy too
