Cabin fever

I have not been writting of late mostly because life has been sort of overwhelming and work has been shifting shifts for a month. One week on first, then two on split, next week on second. It has been draining and my sleep has suffered, so add exhaustion.
Part of all this is just not having much to look forward to but work and more work at home. The reallity of it is it's not just the lack of letting off some steam but that I can't afford it time wise or money wise.
The old cabin fever of winter is setting in and the comming month holds a planned night out with friends. This is keeping me going for now and as the weather improves other things will help improve the mindset. In me is this undying faith that things will improve and as the clutter is cleared away routines will again return and life will feel more like it use to.
Many of those who I stay in contact with are experiencing the same things in their lives and my heart goes out ot them. This is the first time in a long time I can remember having the the ability to pick up the phone and calling a friend to go have a drink or coffee.
During 15 years of marriage this was not one of the things that was part of my life. All of our friends were hers save one, all the things we did were with her friends. I had lost a part of me and am just now starting to find me again.
This to all those who know me from here, you are to me like family who encourage and boost me to carry on when I feel just hiding out and being a hermit, thank you all. You have helped me to cast off some of the bad spirits and as time goes on you will help me to dispell the rest.
Here is to friendships, Ya'all have a nice day

Ahhhh Jim, without you where would our little group be? Where would I be if you hadn't invited me into the group? From what I know of you so far, you are a great man with a very big heart. Anyone that knows you loves you and you are a cherished friend. Winter is about over and spring will soon be here. Just think of all the YUMMY BBQ's we are going to have.

GJ, I'm so happy to be able to call you friend. I can't wait for spring either. I know when the weather warms up we will be able to put the winter doldrums behind us. I can't wait for fresh air and sunshine either. Bike rides, skinny dipping, and back yard BBQ's. I think we are all ready for some cheering up!
