The Weekend…

This is the worst part of traveling for work, nothing like having to spend a weekend alone by oneself. There is only so much you can do. So today was the day to have a bit of fun, so I took a drive to Disney Springs, which is a shopping mall by Disney itself. The last time I was here I also went there but I didn’t cover the whole thing at all, but this time I managed to see pretty much everything.

The other thing about this trip that sucks is with no fitness center in the building it makes it more difficult to get in a decent workout. So I have to investigate an alternative at least for the rest of the time I am here since this place doesn’t have its fitness center up and running. I noticed a place up the road from here and I am going to look them up and see if they charge a daily fee or something.

And it totally sucks to have to eat dinner by oneself is never fun so I just went to Chic-Fil-A rather than a real restaurant, cuz than it always feels weird.

The other downside to this trip is during it I found out that my company lost its contract and now I have to get my job but with the new company that won the contract. This shouldn’t be much of an issue as I have worked for said company twice before. The good thing is I go in with seniority with nearly 4 years working for them. The company itself well they did a bit of a backslide a bit ago, hopefully they have improved since the last time I worked with them, but I think that might have had a lot to do with the people and the organization I was working with, it wasn’t that great. The organization I work with now is cool, great people and I want to make sure I get to stay there, not just because of that but also because I am trying to transition to a gov’t position in the same location and that is something that should be happening soon or so I should hope. The gov’t doesn’t move all that fast which annoys me to no end.

I know my life is a bit boring, but hey we can’t all be overtly exciting.

Should be interesting when I get home, my wife is painting our master bath, as we decided it needed some color, so she was doing that today. Will be interesting to see how it turned out. I might not get to see it till I get home which is next Friday.

Well I am going to head off now to being bored, and finishing up with doing my son’s homework for him…LOL (not really but he is picking my brain seriously for the last 2 hours).

Oh, upside, it was about 86 degrees today, the downside, there are lots of new strange pollens in the air here that are aggravating the shit out of my allergies and sinuses leaving me miserable for the most part. LOL

Day 1 & 2 in the bag…

So the travel day and the actual first day of work are done. This was a good day though, because last time I was here for a similar event it was a total disaster. Today on this time around the day was productive and we got a good deal done. So got some good vibes in regards to how I expect the rest of the time here to go.

The downside to being here is the hotel was supposed to have a fitness center, something which it apparently doesn’t seem to have because they are doing a renovation on the place that isn’t quite done. It appears to be mostly done and maybe if they finish before the end of my time here they will get the fitness center open. In the meantime I did do a 3+ mile run/walk today, the upside to being in Florida the weather though a bit cool was wonderful.

Funny thing is my son came down to Florida to take my granddaughter to Disney for the first time, so I get to go out to dinner with them tomorrow. That will be nice for sure, just have to figure out somewhere to go.

Well this is going to be it for now, I have to get my ass to bed to get up tomorrow.

Ah yes…

And it is almost time for the traveling to home to start.

I have to get my ass up bright and early in the morning around 4AM so that I can get my ass to the airport by 530 or so to catch a 7AM flight out of Austin. And then in between I have to keep my fingers crossed that the weather in the NE cooperates so that I can actually get all the way home.

On another more serious note, because this is something that has been on my mind for a couple of weeks now and since this is my anonymous source of posting things I am going to share this. It strikes a chord for me because I have been clean and sober now for nearly 9 years. But I get to basically watch my wife continue to be in the throws of her own addiction involving food, anorexia to be more specific. She has been obsessed with her weight and how she looks for pretty much the entire time we have been together, which is going on 27 years now, and of course for a good portion of that time she got to experience me in my addiction, and was there for my bottom. It appears that she doesn’t have a bottom and I don’t think she will ever actually see that bottom, and I say that more because of something she said a couple of weeks ago after remarking about how much I ate at dinner (while she left her food pretty much unfinished) as I said to her, if I didn’t force you to eat you would starve to death. At which time she remarked yes I probably would, and she said it with a smile.

She has pretty much been subsisting on maybe around 500 – 600 calories a day for quite some time now, it might even be less, I only ever see her eat dinner in the evening, I don’t know what she actually eats during the day. I also don’t know what she eats when I am traveling, she says she does but I really don’t know.

I have read enough material to know that one can subsist off this little for a long long time, but it will have consequences on ones body, I make sure she gets a vitamin supplement daily, that likely helps. She is obsessed with losing weight, she doesn’t however realize that she has shot out her metabolism and she won’t lose anymore weight at all, and if she starts eating more calories a day she will just gain weight quickly, I am sure, I haven’t mentioned that I just keep trying to get her to eat more.

I worry that her bottom is going to wind up being something quite severe, and it won’t be pretty, I know it will happen, eventually, I just don’t know when. I don’t know how long her body will continue to function before the low amount of calories starts to actually take a real toll, though I am sure it has in some ways, that I am must not noticing as I should.

OK, that is enough for now, I have to go to sleep as 4AM comes early and I want to get my happy ass home!

And It’s Christmas

It wasn’t much of a Christmas this year, we really did it on Saturday when our son was here, so today it was the wife and I. Since that was the case we decided to do something different, since we live in an area that is rich in history we took off and headed to Washington’s Crossing State Park, to see the re-enactment of Washington crossing the Delaware prior to the Battle of Trenton in 1776. It was cold and windy today but we went, and we had fun, gonna have to go back next year because they didn’t hold the actual crossing because of the weather conditions (50mph wind gusts) didn’t help.

This was the first year in 26 years together that the wife and I didn’t exchange gifts, I wasn’t happy about it but we had to take care of others first, and honestly the fun we had today even though we were freezing was more than enough for me.

Well for now that is all. Just another boring day in the life! Back to Christmas movies, watching Miracle on 34th Street.

The Home Stretch…

And by that I mean we are just days away from Xmas, which isn’t going to be much of a great day this year at least because my son won’t be home with us for pretty much the first year since he was born. We are happy he is coming a couple days before to spend with us with our granddaughter so that is a good thing.

It does however suck because this year we are working to make Xmas good for all with way less money than ever before, and that sucks in a big way for sure. The wife and I will be forgoing exchanging any gifts with each other so that we can take care of everyone else for certain. And we aren’t done yet either, so we are taking it down to the wire this year.

So we will have a nice dinner with the kids and my Mom on Saturday which will be our Xmas dinner and then on Sunday I am thinking I am going to take the wife to see the new Star Wars movie for sure, as it will be something to do. And if I can’t do it on Sunday we will go on Xmas day since it will only be the two of us and all.

In the meantime the work week is short for me, as I had to take Monday off for contractors visiting our house to do 1 year repairs, which are now all done, and Friday I took the day just for shits and giggles and an extra day off the day after Xmas, so I got a nice long weekend coming.

Since we have a shit ton of debt to tackle in 2018 I have started trying to get extra work on a site called and started submitting some proposals on that site, so we will see how that works out. I also hopefully will get my firearms training biz going if my curriculum gets approved and at some point I will add becoming a training counselor so that I can train new trainers for my organization, just not sure when that will happen because well I will need money to do that training. I will also be starting to get into my writing more so that I can start with posting short erotic pieces on Amazon in order to make some extra bucks as well. And lastly I will be starting the novel I want to write, and I am going to shoot for finishing that by mid-summer, maybe by my birthday even.

OK, this is all for now.

The Weekend

Yes the weekend, unfortunately it is yet again coming to an end, and we are then back to fucking Monday at work. The only bonus about this week is that it is only going to be three days long before its done.

Didn’t do much this weekend, being my wife was not here, she is in the National Guard and goes back to NJ to drill two weekends a month, and I used to get to go along with her but now I get to stay home. I use that time to get shit done around the house. This weekend it was laundry, hang out with our Puppy and pretty much nothing else. Oh yes and I just finished building a platform to put our Xmas tree on, we got this nice 7.5′ tall tree but the stand is only like 7″ tall so it stays really close to the ground, the stand I built will jack it up about 8″ and then some. Now there will be room to actually put presents under the tree.

I haven’t been doing very good with the whole writing thing, I am working on it though. I have to get working on it because I need to start writing some of the erotic stories floating in my head so that I can get them up on Amazon in order to start earning some extra money, as there isn’t anything else going on that is getting that money in my pocket.

Next weekend will be good, Thanksgiving with the family, to include my son and granddaughter and the rest of the family. Later that weekend after some Black Friday shopping on Friday of course will be taking my wife to the range, gotta get her shooting and I have a new carry gun which I need to blast 500 rounds through to make sure there will be no failures with it.
