New lab

I had the usual morning at work except that I got together in the office and was told they are building me a lab in the future and I got to plan what it would look like and how big. It was fun because I really wasn't sure I was going to get it even though when I was hired, they said I would. They just made an addition to the building so they are going to start moving departments around and my lab will be a part of all that transition. I'm hoping in the next couple of months. I'm really excited about it.

It's a good thing that I'm a lot more patient driver than I used to be. I got stuck behind someone doing 40-45 down the back roads that I normally do around 60. I could have passed if I really wanted to but I just chilled behind him. Then we got to the highway where the speed limit is 55, once again, he did 40-45 and I just stayed behind him. By the time we got to the bypass, which is where it goes to 4 lanes, there were about 20 cars lined up behind us. I stayed behind him all the way until I got into the left turn lane. There are 2 left turn lanes and he got in the inside one. The light turned, I went left and he decided to go straight and cut off all the people that were in the straight lane. Maybe it was a good thing I didn't pass him.

Even though I went to bed at a decent time (for me) I was still pretty sleepy today at work and kind of dozed off in the recliner really quick earlier so I think I'm going to try to start to go to bed around 10 for awhile and see if that helps. I can function with little sleep but that should stop me from getting real sleep. I used to stay up so I can go to bed with my wife but now she stays up really late so there is no point in trying to stay awake for that anymore. We'll see how well I do on that goal.

Boring day

I went to bed last night with my knee wrapped, I didn't expect it to stay and sure enough, when I got up this morning, it wasn't even covering any part of the sore. I tried to take it off but I couldn't get it started so I ended up running it down over my foot. I didn't bother covering it for work since I knew it wouldn't stay anyways.

Started off this morning with the Communications meeting which puts me behind on my schedule but I'm also getting paid to stand there so there is a trade off. I also lost some time when our chemical guy came in and we talked to him for about 45 minutes. We also had a carry in for a birthday so it's amazing I got anything done.

Picked up some ice and Samantha on the way home. Been here ever since watching the DVR, except for the quick nap I took. Samantha has gone to the high school basketball and Trevor headed off to his friend's house for a bit. The nice quiet house made it easy to doze off for a few.

Being as this is become more of a here's what I did today, rather than an actual blog with stuff, I debate if I shouldn't just make it private. or maybe just followers only. I don't know. If I made it private at least I could bitch about work more but I generally don't do that in a public forum. Not that I have a lot to complain about but we all have our bad days.

Sticky situation

As you can tell, I went to bed pretty late last night. Just couldn't get tired. Usually on Sunday nights, I get tired but can't fall asleep, last night was the opposite. So I ended up going to work with under 3 hrs sleep.

My day was broke up as I had to go back to the doc for the Sulfuric burn weekly check up at 10:30 which is the time I'm usually doing my adds so I didn't do much in that way today.

I got the all clear, actually I had that last week. The doc seemed annoyed that I hadn't put anything on it or even wrapped it all week. I went back to work and took the wrap off that they had put on. It was already off my knee so it wasn't doing any good anyways.

I got off work, picked up Sam and took her to therapy. While she was there, I ran to Martin's to pick up some stuff for our carry in tomorrow and then back to the therapist to sit in the parking lot and listen to some new music I had saved.

We came home, I showered and then fell asleep in the recliner. The bad part, since I showered and our water tends to dry out the skin, I fell asleep with my scab open and it dried. When I woke up, I went to put my leg down and it was stuck to my PJ bottoms. It hurt like a mofo to pull it off so Cheri decided to put some stuff on it and wrap it so it stay's moist. It's helped so far and I'm getting ready to head for bed now so we'll see if it lasts the night.

Very lazy Sunday

Started my day off alright, got up around 9 and headed for the recliner. I had planned on getting my daily's (online) out of the way and start to work on my cards like I had planned. Then I got sidetracked with the A Day in the Life of stuff again. After a couple of hours, I finally stopped and moved on. I started working on my cards, finally.

About 3:30 I got up to get ready to leave as we had to run to Walmart and I was craving Flippin' Cow for supper. While I was taking a leak, I looked at my Fitbit. It said 42 steps. I then realized that I hadn't been out of my recliner since I got up that morning. That would be why I tend to not get many steps on non work days. Since we left though, I least got over 1,000 for the day.

I had to hit Walmart because on Friday, I was walking through the yard and the sole on my work boot folding over completely in half. I only bought them 4 or 5 months ago so that isn't good. I'm pretty sure the chemicals wore them down. Saturday, I put some duct tape between the sole and the boot and it worked great most of the day. With about an hour left, it started to come off. So, that would be why I had to hit Walmart.

We were in and out of Walmart quickly, went in the tire entrance, grabbed my boots and left. We went from there to the Flippin' Cow which is more or less a bar with a family section but the burgers are OMG delicious. We always get started off with these.

They are so good. They are big enough that Cheri uses a fork to eat them because she has to cut them up. I have a big enough mouth that it isn't an issue.

Cheri did a build a burger today but this is what she usually gets.

I know, sounds awesome right, but you have to see what I get.

We only go so often because as you can tell by the prices, it isn't cheap. We also only go when we don't have the kids with us. They can't appreciate that deliciousness anyways.

We headed home stuffed to the gills and resumed our chilling. I was actually going to start posting this blog about 3 hours ago but I went over to Google Photos (I don't even remember why now) and remembered that I wanted to go through it and delete stuff. Every picture, video, screencap, ect that I have ever posted on this blog and my many others were on there. I googled and found where it said they wouldn't delete off my blog so I went to deleting. Deleted over 10,000 photos because it duplicated almost everything. After spending a couple of hours doing that, I had a sneaky feeling something wasn't right so I went to my card blog and sure enough, all the pictures were gone. I was pissed, I started looking around and figured out how to restore them and spent an hour doing that. I went back to the blog and thank God they were there. I was thinking I was done with the blogs if they weren't going to be there.

I think they have changed where they store the photos because I noticed where a lot of my newer photos from my blogs weren't there. So I'm guessing that where I read they don't delete them was that they don't now. A couple of my blogs have been around awhile so I'm guessing where they used to keep them here is what I deleted.

If you haven't been to Google Photos, they have your photos in chronological order. So when you go there, your newest photos are on top. Except my page where these 3 videos are on top.

Notice the date at the top. I forgot that when I traveled to the future that I took videos of my kids. Oh yeah, they traveled with me as well because they are all a few years younger than they are now. At least the first one was taken indoors since it's cold in Ann Arbor in February, as for the last one, apparently my daughter wears shorts in the average temps of 35 degrees.  That's what I'm guessing happened.

Anyways, now I didn't get jack done like I wanted to. I wanted to  reload my Tumblrs as well and didn't get anything done there. Maybe tomorrow.

Day 392 - Blaine, NE (1274.3 miles)

It was okay week, I stuck around my 8,000/steps a day goal but not much more than that like I did the previous week. As you can see, I'm still in Nebraska and while I'm only going one state over, I have to go all the way across it so it'll be awhile.

Goal - 1,500 miles (4.1 miles/day)
Currently - 95.5 miles (3.53 miles/day)

Last week I was at 3.42 miles a day so I did increase that at least. As I said above in the blog, I haven't done much today so I'll need to make it up this week. I know tomorrow I have to go for a check up on the Sulfuric burn on my knee so that's about an hour I'll probably be sitting on my ass.

Starting my weekend

You know if I posted that first thing in the morning that I wanted the day over with. Not to much happened today. I think I got my project finished. I may think of a few things to add but I've got the majority of them finished.

My boss bought breakfast at the local diner. I personally, don't think the food there is all that great but it's a free meal. I'm not turning that down. Maybe next time I'll try something not egg related because I think that tends to be my issue. I think it's more, all you can taste is the egg and not the other stuff mixed in.

That's the 3rd meal that's been bought for me this week. I appreciate the generosity but I feel bad that I can't afford to buy for everyone and pay it back. I mean, I could, but that takes away a bill that was going to get paid this week. It's not exactly cheap to buy that many meals.

One thing I do like about working Satuday's, other than the paycheck, is the lack of traffic on the roads. It makes for a pleasant drive.

Haven't done much since. I've been online, I got completely caught up on my Day in the Life of journal so now I can just do one day at a time. If you don't remember what that is, it's where I'm creating my own kind of timehop for all my accounts on one page. I wanted to get that done so I can work on some of my card blogs tomorrow.

We were going to meet our oldest daughter tomorrow so she could get Milo back but Cheri ended up meeting her boyfriend half way today while I was at work so now I get to hang out and do nothing tomrrow and that's right up my alley.

Work is fattening me up


Today went pretty much as planned. I did my usual stuff and then sat at the computer for about 2 1/2 hours working on the other stuff. I'm almost done with it so hopefully a little time tomorrow and I will get it done.

The crew I work with really loves to spend their money on food. Apparently that's my gain and by gain, I mean the 50 lbs.

I headed home and had to reinforce the gate to our back yard because apparently, Milo got out today. Cheri was telling me how much she freaked and I could imagine how bad it was. She tried the old trick that we used to do growing up with our dog. Hopped in the car, drove up and asked if he wanted to go for a ride. Works every time.

I was getting into my computer stuff this evening and crashed hard. I fell asleep in the recliner and I can tell how hard I slept by how easy it was to wake up. I couldn't wake up, that's not good. That means I will probably struggle to fall asleep tonight and I have to work tomorrow. Like I said yesterday, an endless cycle.

We just spent the last half an hour looking for the key to Cheri's Brink's Home Security Box. It has all her meds in it and she went to fill out her 2 week worth of her pill box and realized it was gone. After searching through everything, I told her I would MacGyver it the lock box with a bobby pin. Guess what? I did it. I'd like to say it's because I'm just that good, but it was all luck.

Over the river and through the woods, with pizza

I got to work today, knowing I was going to have to make quite a bit of adds to get caught up from not having my pump for a week. So as usual, more stuff got thrown on me taking my time away. When I finished topping off the tanks, I had to pump out anodize rinse water into a tank that needs cleaning. One thing we have learned is Sulfuric is great for cleaning hard stuff. I use it in my lab once a week just to soak certain beakers that get crappy looking after a week of use. I let it soak in the beaker for a few hours and it looks like new. Anyways, I pumped over the rinse into our old black dye rinse to let it soak and hopefully make it easier to clean the dye off when we get around to doing it. Of course, this knocked an hour off of the time I use for my daily stuff.

Once I got my testing done, I decided to skip out on the decanting of the Anodizers to make time to knock off all the other adds. I made adds to the Soap, Etch and Seal tanks as well as got another Caustic barrel going to the Etch tank. I knocked them out relatively quick which was good since I was short on time.

I'm thinking with all those adds done, I can knock out the Anodizers in the morning and that should leave me some time to do a bunch of paper/computer work that they want me to do before the weekend. We are working Saturday so I do have an extra day to get it done.

After work, I came home, showered and went to pick up Trevor from the school. He had his J-Club (Academic team) practice/meeting. Then we came home, hung out, then headed for my grandmothers house. One thing I've learned this week is not to leave between 5 or 6 o'clock because it is a pain in the ass to get out of our neighborhood and out onto the main road. We got out and went to Bruno's to pick up the pizza then headed out.

She had a couple of surgeries on her hip and is restricted to putting absolutely no weight on it so she moves around with a wheelchair. Which of course is odd because before the hip issues, she could out walk me any day of the week. She is way more active than I am but once this time frame is over, she will hopefully be good to go back to resuming her normal activities.

My mom invited us all over so Cheri could give my grandmother a haircut, I'm pretty sure it was also a way to get us over there because I'm a horrible grandson and don't visit. Which wouldn't be bad if I had an active life, but all we do is sit around and do nothing and I still can't take the time. It isn't like I ignore her, to be honest, I just don't think about it and once I do, I'm already home and in my PJ's and don't want to leave.

I'm just not a surprise, here we are, type of guest so unless I plan on showing up, I don't think about it. I'm that way with everyone. I love my family and I love hanging out with them, even if we're not doing anything I always have a good time just chit chatting, but I just don't like just showing up, even if I know they wouldn't care.

Cheri ended up cutting Samantha and Trevor's hair as well. She figured she might as well while she had hair on the floor. Afterwards, we headed home. I probably could have gone to bed around 9 but that's to early, and now I'm awake and it's closing in on midnight. It's like a never ending cycle sometimes. That's going to make it hard to do all the computer work tomorrow. That tends to make me drowsy when I don't get much sleep.

Bad roads?

I didn't post yesterday, I just didn't get around to it. Not a whole lot happened at work. My barrel pump showed up but by the time it got there, I didn't really have much time to do make any adds. I mainly did some computer work along with my chemical testing most of the day.

In the evening, or late afternoon, I picked up Samantha at school after her art club and then ran my stepfather to his brothers garage to pick up his vehicle, then home for pretty much nothing.

Headed to work this morning, taking my normal route. Roads were wet but no big deal, I did my normal speed. Did my testing and started making my adds with my new and improved barrel pump. I got some alerts that roads were becoming horrible, that they closed the bypass. I looked outside and it was snowing a little but I couldn't tell why they were saying it was bad. I kept debating all afternoon if I should take back roads home which runs parallel to the highway that I got warnings about. I decided screw it, maybe there would be even less traffic now so I took home the normal route and it was just fine, I did around 60 mph most of the way. I turned on the road to head North and about a mile later, it started sleeting so I'm guessing the road I took home also ran parallel to the storm. Either way, I made it home without a problem.

Had to leave the house to drop off and pick up the kids at the therapists office. Of course, I was in my PJ's as I wasn't expecting to get out of the car but the therapist wanted to talk to me for a second so I had to go inside in my PJ's. I never do that. I'm not one of those people who where them everywhere. I will wear them in the car if I don't plan to get out of the car, but not actually out in public. So embarrassing, you know, if I actually got embarrassed.

An acidic day

It started like a normal day, a Monday that is. After I got done with my testing, I was going to set up the pump on the new barrel of Nitric to add to the Deox tank. I turned it on and next thing I know, the side of the Etch tank was smoking. Apparently there was a hole in my Nitric hose so I had to reinstall new hose for that. Didn't take as long as I had thought, I must be getting good at this stuff.

After that, I went to make my adds. Because of the lack of a barrel pump, still, I was using the method of using a manual barrel pump over to the 5 gallon bucket and then submersible pump from the bucket to the tank. I had to add a bunch of Sulfuric after decanting 3 of the tanks. I had filled the bucket and pumped it out 5 times already and was on my last tank. I got the bucket about half way full when I saw the manual pump hose bouncing around. I didn't want it coming out of the bucket and since I was using my hands to pump, I pinned it against the barrel with my knee. Which worked great, until it didn't. When I pinned it, I either caused a hole or there was one I hadn't seen and with every pump I made, more Sulfuric was going onto my pants. I didn't notice it right away, I was thinking my knee was hurting a bit from holding the hose. I finally pulled my knee away and looked at it and realized there was a streak of Sulfuric running down my knee.

I stopped the pump and set everything aside then walked around to the back of the line. I knew there was not a way to get to my knee without taking my pants off and I didn't want to do that in front of the line. By the time I got back there, I could really feel it, I kicked off my shoes and socks, then my pants and grabbed the hose and started spraying my knee. I was doing that for about 5 minutes before one of the girls came back there and I hollered at her and asked her to go get someone. A little bit later, the safety guy comes up and starts helping me as I stand there in my underwear and lab coat.

They eventually ended up sending me to the med clinic. They were worried because the (M)SDS sheet said third degree burns can happen within 3 minutes of not getting treated and since I wasn't positive on how long it was on my knee before I got the water on it, they sent me. I didn't want to go but since they were saying I had to, I didn't really have a choice.

They basically wrapped it up and gave me some cream in case it starts to blister tomorrow. It's not a big deal to me, once I got the water on it, it started feeling a lot better. I sat in the office (in my underwear) for about 20 minutes while my boss ran to Walmart to buy me a pair of pants since I couldn't put mine back on and it didn't really hurt that whole time but they sent me anyways.

After I left there, I headed back to work, mainly to check in and clock out because it was past quitting time. I went into the Anodizing office to gather some of my stuff and the group leader was in there. We were talking about what happened and she informed me that the person I asked to go get help, ran up and interrupted a meeting with all the management in a panic saying I was burned. That was completely on her because I was not panicked at all so we'll see who all comes and checks on me tomorrow. I know one good thing that will happen, the safety guy already purchased 3 barrel pumps. WooHoo!

I came home and chit chatted with the wife who had to do an MRI today. They are doing one to see if the MS has progressed any more. It'll take a bit to find out her results so now it's wait and see.

Samantha went to the high school basketball game and we've been chilling most of the evening, watching a couple of Michigan basketball games I had on the DVR. One men's and one women's game. Cheri has already crashed from the valium they gave her to calm her for the MRI. I've been fighting sleep all night but of course, am now wide awake. As I type this out, I'm listening to the storm outside. Thunder, lightning and rain for sure, almost sounded like a little sleet at one point but I'm not sure it's quite cold enough for that.

I'll catch you on the flip side tomorrow with an update about my knee.

Sunday, January 21, 2018

Slow Sunday

Not much to say today. Woke up later than I would have liked but then again, I do love to sleep in so I won't complain. At least not until I go to bed tonight.

Been chilling, doing my internet stuff and watching shows off the DVR most of the day. Other than running out to pick up Trevor from his mom. It was extremely foggy again. I don't remember having this many really foggy days and by days, I mean in the daylight and not the morning. Don't know if that means anything or not.

I guess since I don't have much else, I'll update you on the walking progress.

Day 385 - Sutton, NE (1248.2 miles)

I had a pretty decent week, well up until today, which I guess is technically next week. I've been trying to walk after work, if anything, walk in place at home. I had 3 days in a row that I had over 10,000 steps and since my goal is set for 8,000 a day, I'd say I made up for today.

Goal = 1,500 miles (4.1 miles a day)
Currently = 69.41 miles (3.47 miles a day)

Last week my current pace was just over 3 miles a day so I'm getting a little better. I know the beginning of the week is supposed to be decent so maybe I'll get out and walk outside.

Saturday, January 20, 2018

Slow Saturday

One nice thing about working Saturday is there is never any traffic on the way there. The other nice thing is I get a better parking spot because there is less people there.

I didn't really do much as far as my usual job. I did more paperwork and work on the computer than anything. Because of that, I ruined my 3 day streak of 10,000 steps.

I did get some free breakfast though.

I avoided making adds again since the barrel pump still isn't working. I'm not going to be able to do that Monday when the Sufuric I ordered comes in.

I came home, showered and have been fighting sleep in the recliner most of the night. I know, exciting stuff isn't it. No plans for tomorrow either so more excitement to come.

Better late than never

So I woke up this morning when my wife tapped me saying, Jeff, it's 5:51. Now I'm supposed to be at work by 6 and my alarm is set for 4:45 so needless to say, I was late. I rolled over to grab my phone to find out why the alarm didn't go off only to grab my charger with no phone attached. Apparently when I went to bed last night, I left my phone on the table between our chairs in the living room. I've never done that before. It was just odd that I did it at all.

We have personal time so I can call in and still get paid for it but you can only take it in 2 hour increments so I text the boss and told him I'd be in at 8. He text back that they were rubbing off on me.

Because I generally have damn near perfect attendance, I make fun of everyone who calls in or is late. So you know when I showed up, they harassed me big time. That's alright though, because my response was usually, would you like to compare attendance records. Yeah, I didn't think so.

Since I was already late, I stopped and hit the McDonalds drive-thru for some breakfast. Might as well. I got there even earlier than I normally do because I left earlier. The nice thing about showing up late though is I got a great parking spot.

I got my new barrel pump in today, only for it to stop working so we'll see what happens with that. The boss says he's going to try to fix it. Other than that, it was a pretty quick day since I skipped the first 2 hours.

I got home and was going to walk Milo but our neighborhood streets are still icy and between me slipping and Milo paws getting really cold walking on it, I decided against it. I was going to pull out the Wii again but yesterday, I pretty much stuck to the walking so I decided to just walk in place in the living room. That may actually be more physical since I tend to exaggerate my arm and leg movement. Hey, at least it's something. It's put me at over 10,000 steps for 3 days in a row.

After that, I took Trevor to meet theEx so he could spend the weekend with her. It wasn't a pleasant trip because of all the idiots on the roads. I had to lay on my horn 3 times and I only use the horn when I have to. I don't use it when someone pisses me off, I only use it when an accident is barely avoided.

Yes, I stopped and got gas, then hit Taco Bell, then home. We've been watching TV ever since. I'm working tomorrow so I won't be up real late, although it's already 20 till 11 and I just started an hour show so we'll see.

No snow yesterday

Today was the first time in about a week that I took the back roads to work. We didn't get any snow finally so the roads were dry which means even though the temperatures were still low, there was nothing on the roads to freeze. Woohoo!

Another average day at work. Not having a barrel pump is really cramping my style but I get by. I checked the order of chemicals that came in and couldn't find my Sulfuric Acid which I would need by tomorrow. Come to find out, I didn't order it. I ordered the Sulfuric for waste treatment and for some reason, thought it was mine so I didn't order any. So now I can't decant the tanks all week so I can get by with what I have. The bad part is, now my aluminum levels on those 3 tanks are going to gradually go up which I've been trying to lower since I started.

From a friends Snapchat

That's me, sitting on my barrel of Nickel. I'm sitting on it because the manual pump is filling up my 5 gallon bucket, slowly. In my hands, not sure if you can really see it or not, I have the plug to the extension cord and the plug for the submersible pump. Once the 5 gallon bucket is full, I plug it in and pump it to the tank, unplug it, then wait for it to fill up again. I got tired of standing so I sat.

I headed home and actually took some time to work out on the Wii. I just played around a little then I kept redoing the walking section until I had to go pick up Trevor from the school.

Trevor stayed over for what's called J-Club, which is an introduction to some kind of academic team which I'm really excited for him. I'm not looking forward to going to the matches, but I'm extremely excited for him. I hope he really likes it because it will be good for him.

Nothing else really going on, been sitting and watching some TV.  We've been watching Undercover High and it's scary if you have kids in school. They sent in adults (low to mid 20's) undercover as high school students. You couldn't pay me to do this, I would hate everyone and wouldn't be able to make friends, which is what you need to do to get in for some information. The way the one girl is talked to is ridiculous. The sexual comments just when she walks the hall. It makes me scared for my daughter. One of the undercovers said this that I never thought about. He said that when he was in school, you were judged by your character, now it's judged on your social media presence. That's just scary to me.

There's about 10 minutes left on the show we're watching then I'm heading for bed. It's after 10 and I do best when I'm in bed before 11.

I screwed up

I missed posting yesterday which means I probably won't remember everything, if anything.

At work my barrel pump stopped working so now to add chemicals to the tanks, I have to put a submersible pump in a 5 gallon bucket, then use a hand pump to pump from the barrel to the 5 gallon bucket. Not good times. I'm trying to make as little adds as possible but I have a feeling that will bite me in the ass before my new barrel pump comes in.

My group leader bought me Jimmy John's for lunch though so there was that.

I got home and headed for the shower. Once Samantha got home, we headed out to the gun range. We mainly shot my 9mm handgun and I fired my friends a few times.

He also brought a 38 revolver that I tried, holy crap did that thing have some kick for a handgun.

We used our hour and went through 250 bullets between the 2 of us. It was good to get out and do that again. Although I did have an issue. My contacts have been adjusted so much to see far that I have trouble seeing close now so I have trouble lining up the sights.

We had fun which is all that really matters. I let Samantha drive us home. She did alright except we were at a light where there was 2 cars in front of us. They both turned right on red and I'm pretty sure Samantha was just going to go right threw that red light to go straight. Just as I hollered at her, it turned green so we would have been ok but it was definitely a teaching moment.

This morning started off like a normal morning but just before lunch, I had put a hose in one of the tanks and I knew it was going to be 20 minutes or so before I needed to shut it off so I figured I'd grab the forklift while the drivers were on lunch and grab my barrels from where we store them so I could make my ads when I was done. I went looking for the forklift and couldn't find where our guy parked it so now I was annoyed. I looked around bit and then ended up just sitting there waiting for him to come back from break so I could tell him to get my stuff. The problem was, because I got annoyed, I completely forgot the hose. That is until my boss called and said he just got a call that one of the tanks was overflowing. I was pissed at myself. It was the first time since I started that I overflowed one. What's worse is you have to use a wet dry vac to clean up the overflow because there is no drain in the floor. Luckily one of the guys helped me out otherwise it wouldn't have taken the whole afternoon to clean it up. We'll see if there are any consequences tomorrow. I'm not expecting any but if they did, I would sit and take it.

When I make a mistake, I beat myself up over it. I still get mad about it and it was almost 9 hours ago.

The funny thing that happened today was they started a swear jar at work. We are pretty much keeping tally's at this point because most of us don't really carry cash, let alone a quarter for each cuss word. We've even added a bunch of people that if they are in our department, they are liable to follow the swear jar as well.

I was going to take a photo at the end of the day but I forgot, I just wanted to get the hell out of there after my mistake. How much do I owe you ask? Not a damn thing. My mom raised me right, I know when I have to hold my tongue. I'm sure I'll slip up here and there in the future but it shouldn't be a problem. Me and a couple of other people still cuss in front of each other, we don't care, we just don't do it in front of certain people who will ding you.

Last I heard, the money was being donated but I'm not positive about that. So if I do get caught cussing, it'll be for the kids, which is what I'll say.

I'm currently sitting in the car outside of the therapist office. I brought my laptop so I'm just chilling in the car, in my pj's and typing up this blog. Although she should be just about done so I may finish at home.

I am home now but I'm done for the day. We'll see if I post tomorrow. I don't think anything is going on after work but we'll see.
