Brief Life Update

I’m still here in reasonably good health and good spirits. Maybe a little tired.

The ET article is still in the process of being written. I just wanted to jump on and say hi and say I’m doing okay. It’s been kind of a bumpy year. Heck, it’s been kind of a bumpy four days. I had a list of about 10 things to do on my day off. Got maybe two or three of them done. Yeesh.

It’s kind of sad to say I’ve been holding down the couch for three days, but it’s true. Usually I hold down the couch for the first night of my four nights off. Mostly due to fatigue, some due to pain. The problem is, I’ve just spent four nights fatigued and a little in pain.

Last year’s photo, but other than my beard being a little longer, not much has changed.

My beloved friends that are hardcore into fitness are probably shaking their heads. I love ya. Some days, I can’t even go for a walk. It’s not easy when everything hurts all the time and I feel like I’m dragging a brick behind me strapped on with heavy logging chains with a five year old sitting on it. I will have kids in tow for about another 13 or 14 years? Yeesh.

No lie, family. I’m tired. Chasing these kids takes a lot out of me.

I know others have done it. Keeping the bill collectors at bay and feeding four kids plus two adults isn’t easy, but it’s doable. I get that we chose this on multiple levels. But, honestly, would I have chosen differently had I known?

Anyway, happy holidays! I hope your stocking is full of goodies. May your figgy pudding be as delicious as it sounds. Enjoy the fruitcake and eggnog while you can.

Stay safe. See you again soon.
