Ain't Having Fun
Ain't Having Fun
I'm usually not one that whines about things, regardless of the size of the problems, but I've been having a rather bizarre run here lately.
Haven't had a personal life in I can't remember when. The ability to come back to the house at the end of the day, relax a bit, then play a bit.. especially in the company of a Lady. I know that it has been a very long time since I've been able to play in a manner closer to my liking.. and that bothers me considerably.
Work has been something else. I've been doing my job for a long, long time, and I believe I've been doing it well, and a damned sight better than nearly all my contemporaries. I've also had the feedback that says I have been doing it in an outstanding manner.. which in itself is gratifying, and fuel to continue in the same manner. I don't think I let it got to my head. I prefer notto rest on my laurels. The amount and intensity of some of the things I've seen in the past few weeks has me wondering what alternate dimension I've fallen into, and where's the rabbit-hole I need to get the hell out of here.
Family problems back east have also worn me out. I'm in Alaska, my brother lives in NJ, my niece is outside Boston, and I have one sister who acts on my behalf when I am not there. We act as my Mom's support group. With my other two sisters and their combined families all living within 15 minutes of the nursing home Mom's in, do you think anybody stops by to even say Hello? This same bunch sucked the lifeblood out of my parents over the years, and now that the teat's run dry, they don't know us from Adam.
Now back in Alaska, and headed back to work next week, I find a whole new set of things that have to be worked out, and fast. Otherwise, I will have to deal with a whole lot more crap than normal, and I've already worn out my shovel for the year.
In the meantime, there's a whole flock of things that have to be done before I return to work next week.. all at a time when I want to be off on some fantasy trip with a fun lady.
There ought to be a law that states when you take vacation time from work, you need to be on vacation.. not cleaning up after everybody else's mess. In fact, the law should stipulate that any and all messes be revisited upon the parties that caused them in the first place to the fullest extent of the law.. and many times over to ensure it never happens again.
My only pleasures have been those fleeting moments chatting with a couple of friends, both here on AdultFriendFinder and elsewhere. My only quiet moments have been those while playing golf on my laptop. I gotta get out more.
Could be that I am even more tired than I was before.. Thus are my words for today.
