I'm doing my own version of the rebound blues. My solution is to lean
emotionally on my close friends (and why not - they've certainly leaned on me
enough) and to bury myself in my work. I'm also about to reconfigure my work
schedule and restructure my hours. New projects are a great way to occupy the
Sounds good. I'm unemployed and am a hermit. I'll have to come up with
Last weekend a group of chummies came out for a sleep-over and I don't know what
I would do without them. My most immediate problem is to cut down on my
drinking, which has spiked on the charts in the last three weeks. Not good. So
starting today, I'm on a new regimen.
That's good. I'm generally pretty good about it or at least I have
been for a while. This year has sort of sucked and I got into the bad
habit of drinking each night while reading. Besides being bad for my
mood and liver I managed to gain about 30 pounds. Three or four times
in the past two months I've drank enough that I felt like crap for
most of the next day. Two of those times were while I was visiting my
mother. Something about being in the house for the first time since my
father died and dealing with the fact that my mother's bf lived there
brought on a love affair with the bottle. Applying for food stamps
didn't do much for me last week.
I not forgive this administration for driving a strong economy into the dirt and
wasting so much human potential. I have been very bad about not
going home to see my folks. I feel a very strong need to go home this Christmas.
How old is your mother? (If you don't mind me asking?)
It must be stressful to be in your old house with her "boyfriend" there? I can't
even imagine my mother being with anyone but my father.
But no one's family is perfect. Certainly mine has its share of wackos.
I can't imagine having people over for the weekend. I get company
about twice a decade. One person at a time. This weekend, a friend of
my wife's is showing up with another woman for one night. I'll
probably take the kids to the beach to get out of the way.
The beach. I love isolated beaches. I can't stand crowded beaches. I'm quite
contented with calm mountain lakes. No sharks!
This weekend I'm turning off everything, including my cell-phone, and I'm going
off all electronics, except the stereo. I want to watch mars - the last
time it was this close was during the time of the neanderthals.
I'm supposed to get some work today but the douchebag, like usual, is
making it stressful for me. He's canceled a couple of times then he
said he'd stop over here instead. He wants to stand next to me while I
modify the product design. It'd make me feel like a trained seal.
Also, I'm really not interested in letting the guy in my house..
The only people I will see this weekend are the two guys that are bringing out a
cord of firewood. And they don't have much to say. I'm going for a
walk with my dog. Have a good weekend bob. Take care of yourself.
