Never More

OK, so I am a day late in making this post. Yeah I know. I have been stressed this past week. I am actually surprised I did not have a heart attack or spontaneous combustion happen. But yesterday was my daughter’s birthday and we all celebrated and had fun. Well, let me rephrase that, everyone but me celebrated and had fun. No I was not a grinch, I was working and doing school work. I took a few minutes out to go say high and give her a hug. But next year I will be done with school and hopefully have a little more time when her birthday comes around.

But then there is the summer in Arizona. Ah, good old hell on earth. No I am kidding, I hate it. I was really looking forward to going to Portland later this month, but that will have to be postponed/canceled because there are other things that will need me to be here to finish projects and what not. So I am a little bummed at that, but such is life.

I sometimes think what it would be like to retire now. Sure I am a little young to retire, but if I retire now I would have an income of $0 per year. That may actually qualify me for a new government car, loan, and house, all that I would not have to pay back because I make $0 per year. No I am not getting too political in this post. I save my outrage with government stuff to discuss with Elise’s family and they usually run the other direction when they see me coming. But, they did do that even before I started to watch Glenn Beck, so it may just be that I smell.

Anywho, getting back to my retirement plans, I would be able to do a whole bunch of stuff. Sure I would not be able to go on vacation, and I may never leave Shantytown ever again, but I look around now and think, I am already doing that. I never go on vacation, I am never leaving Shantytown and I am also missing my family, even though I work from home. So retirement may give me a better chance to slow down. But then again, I would probably grow bored and then have to do something, so I would be right where I am now.

But you know what I really would like. I would really like rain. Freaking Arizona teased us yesterday. Made it smell like rain, even sprinkled a little, cloudy almost all day, and nothing. Why would this happen? Why does Arizona always do this to us? I know why, it hates us. Thats right, Arizona hates people. The Arizona ecosystem is mad at all humans, and is going to kill all humans, just like Bender. Ok, maybe not.

Sheesh, I just re-read what I wrote. What a freakin idiot I am. It smells in my house for some reason.

    Oh funny funny things these comments. We can not just up and leave to another state. I have 3 kids and a wife who depend on me to provide for them. The three kids are all in school now. And the fact that we would need a place to live, I would need some kind of internet connection in place and all the other good things that go along with it. Then there is the cost to get all of that set up, move my stuff from AZ, set up deposits for the utilities, and what not; and since Uncle Obama has not given me a check yet to spread the wealth, then I am going to have to do that myself. This is not even taking into consideration of Elise’s dad and how she helps out over there with that situation.

    And besides I loved the erratic weather of Nebraska. The rain, the snow, the storms. I have never really liked the sun and the heat.

    I’m so sorry life, time, and stress have been so ridiculous lately. Just think, less than a year til you are done with your masters and next birthday you will not only get to celebrate with Antoinette, you will get to baptize her.

    Thank you for making the sacrifices you do for our family.

    But if you lived in Portland, maybe you’d get tired of the rain? Or, if you lived here (Louisville, KY), maybe you’d get tired of the weather being so erratic and unpredictable (because it rather is here – had a power outage in part of town this week due to high winds and heavy rains).

    Now, I’m glad I don’t live in the desert any longer for the most part, that is true, but each place has its pros and cons and mostly you just have to learn to be happy wherever you are, because what’s around you can change (weather, life circumstances, etc.). hahaha… a mini-pep talk for you – I couldn’t help myself.

    I have never seen anyone actually run from you. To be honest though I think it would be kind of funny
