After striving valiantly through the week to fight off the creeping crud, it hit full force Friday night (sorry Honey!). In an effort to celebrate a few wins at work, and to try and kick the cold, I indulged in some Bourbon (thanks Mom!).
Saturday was mostly a wasted day, although I did attempt to sweat it out with 75 minutes on the elliptical. Later in the evening, I did manage to get in a few hours of work, and we got caught up on the Bates Motel series on A&E. Dinner consisted of leftovers of beans, rice, beef and a healthy helping of Jalapeno sauce (again an effort to beat this thing).
After watching the last hour of SNL, Dr. Beth sent me off to bed with some Mucinex and I had a much better night. Today was a better day, had a great chat with our friends Kim and Steve from Central California, getting caught up on the latest happenings and such, and discussing a potential West Coast trip next year.
I had a friend (L&R to you Mark) inquire this week whether everything is OK here at Bucko's World. Let me assure you that things are great, the new job is going well, I have been assimilated into the management team and I love the company and the people I work with. Working the long hours is so much more fun when you want to, versus because you have to...
In about a week I will be at a Fire Department Instruction Conference, being out of pocket for a week. Looking forward to being at Lucas Oil Stadium and the Convention Center to see all the advances in Fire Fighting, and I will even have the chance to witness some live fire exercises.
In May we have SmashMouth and Rolling Stones concerts, July is our Vegecation in Florida, August is a Cubbies weekend, and October is New Orleans. Spring is budding, I have an awesome wife, a great job, and Nutwood Junction is our sanctuary. As Beth says, carry on citizens :o)
