It's that time in my life when there needs to be changes. I know that I'm not getting any younger and I need to slow down a little when it comes to partying like a rockstar. Hangovers never used to happen, then they were for a couple hours in the morning. Monday I had one that lasted all day!
I've been reassessing my life as of late I feel like I take two steps back for every step I take forward.
I haven't played volleyball in so long I don't think I could anymore. I haven't been to the gym in months. I haven't even ridden my bike in over a year.
I feel like an old man when I get up my joints ache, as I hobble around to get ready for work in the morning. I've had a chest cold now for over a month. That doesn't seem to be going any where.
It's like I went to bed in my early thirties and woke up in my sixties.
Things have got to change!

Well the only consistency I have as of late is work and drinking. The work part being good of course and the drinking being bad.
This all started last month with a three funerals in three weeks time. It dulled the pain for a while.
Then I got over it but for some reason kept drinking. I haven't been to the gym in a month and half.
Smiley has been seen out, and out of control. Its time to buckle down and straighten up once again.

Its been forever and a day since I last posted alot has been going on in my life. I'm working six days a week at a dairy. It's actually a job I love but six days a week is starting to take its toll.
My woman is currently not working hence the six days a week to pay the bills/ put food on the table/live life.
Im tired and wore out. I even missed the gym twice this week to sleep.
Im burned out and about to snap.
Did I mention Im working today on the biggest day in Irish American history. Independence Day!

Where does the time go? I used to ramble on endlessly on here telling of my many great and not so great adventures. Now it seems that the time is just slipping away.
I know that part of it is the fact that my days off are a day apart, Saturday and Monday. Combined with the fact that I'm in a serious relationship, and the recent reintroduction of the whole family thing.
I've always been a very independent person. I don't need anyone around to feel good. I don't get lonely. All I need is a few Flaming Lips, and a couple of Todd Snider CD's and I'm golden.
I'm not saying that there aren't friends that I miss. Some are actually around here others are far away. It seems that our schedules just don't gel.
I'm now at the point of my life of an upcoming wedding and hopefully kids to follow. I feel like I neglect my friends, I have quite a few and I can't hang with them all at once.What will it be like after marriage and children.
Well at least it's baseball season, Go Cubs, Go Tribe!

The Saints!
I've been a New Orleans Saints fan since 1984. That was the year that Ken Stabler went there. I originally was a fan of the Raiders in most part due to my cousin Brett. But when Stabler left I followed him. First to the Houston Oilers and then to the "Aints".
I can remember Monday night football and Howard Cosell saying, "there he is the once great Snake, Ken Stabler."
I'm also a Chicago Bears fan though. That was due to my late cousin Steve. He loved the Bears.
tomorrow I will be routing whole heartedly for my Saints to come through.
Go Saints!

I know I've been working too much as of late. I'm tired, I haven't been to to gym, and the worst part is that I had friends and familly in town over Chrismas that I didn't get to see.
This is the busy part of the year for those of us in the milk industry. Which means twenty hours of overtime and six days of work a week is the norm.
New years resolutions for me, more consistent in the gym. Find my buddy from Sweden, I haven't heard from him in about eight years. And try to be nice to everyone, even the stupid people that make me so angry.
Happy New Year,

Hectic as of late!
The past few weeks have been hectic. Quick reflection car problems! My Dad in the hospital. Sister that is sick.
This along with reconnecting with familly and working six days a week. All you can do is put your best foot forward and keep on keeping on.
Things will definitely get better.
