Lent 2017 – Day 8 and I Have an Interview

Lent Day 8

I am enjoying my separation from social media.  I still wonder what is going on and I still have a disconnected feeling.  It’s been just over 1 week.  I have found that I am sleeping easier, that I am reading paper-based items and my attention isn’t jumping all over the place.

Oh – I have an interview next Friday in Evansville, IN.  This could be HUGE.  It’s for a Safety Coordinator position.  I’ll pony up more details when necessary, but I am very excited.  This could mean some significant changes coming down the line.  A solid job would facilitate a move to Owensboro and ease some tensions there with wedding planning.  I could also make moves to set up the honeymoon.

My current work knows about it, and they wish me all the best.  I think they were anticipating my leave way before this (so was I).  But if everything works out – I could be in KY by April Fool’s Day.


Lent 2017 – Day 5 (I think) Digging out the PS3

It’s Day 5.  I haven’t used Facebook, Youtube, and/or Twitter.  I have little to no idea what is going on in the real world, and the POTUS is tweeting like a madman but I am staying away.  I’ve watched an entire season of The Magicians (season 1), and am about to jump back into playing Lego Dimensions (I might have a problem…).  Right now I am waiting for a PS3 update.

I feel a little more free, staying away from those outlets and I can only wonder what I have missed.  I wonder if anyone misses me online.  I talked with my fiance a few times over the weekend, but other than that – stayed in hermit mode.  I was packing for my move and going over the job boards, doing laundry, etc – but I missed my online presence.  I know this is going to fade as the days continue on, and there will be an overwhelming wave of information once I get back.  I’m rambling – probably should have thought this out a little more rather than just starting to type.

I ordered a pizza for the first time this year.  I’ve been trying to eat better, but the call of garlic knots and pepperoni called for me in the middle of the night.  The delivery driver even called me out “…haven’t been here in a while – you’ve been feeling okay?”  to which I sheepishly replied “…I’ve been trying to eat better…”  “Well, it’s nice to have you back.”  and it felt good to be back (?)  Why can’t they have like salad delivery services?  (OMG – did I just admit to that?!)


I’m getting a little anxious.  The wedding is eight months away.  I still have to find a job and move.  I have a lot of people helping me look and while I admit I am excited about starting this new part of my life – I’m scared shittless.  I know this is normal.  It doesn’t make it any easier.

Well, these things get automatically posted to both by Facebook and Twitter feeds.  It’s a nice record down the line. I feel a little like a ghost in that respect.

On to tomorrow.  Why won’t this update data download already….  rrgh.

Post Wedding Wrap-Up
Current mood:  melancholy
Category: Romance and Relationships

I was on vacation last week – I went home on Tuesday to spend time with my family before my little sister Melissa’s birthday.  The last couple of days – pretty chaotic.

07-07-07 Date of the Wedding

I woke up at 4:30 a.m. to take a shower and to get out of everyone’s way.  The bride and bridesmaids showed up at 7:00 am to begin getting ready.  I got out of the house ASAP.

My tuxedo was late – it was delivered the morning of the ceremony as pictures were being taken.  The photographer must have taken over 1000 pictures.

The ceremony took place – pretty typical long Catholic Wedding ceremony.  My 4-year old neice developed a crush on the best man and wouldn’t leave Jimmy alone.  My nephew pulled it together and performed his duties well as the Ring Bearer.

By 1:00 everyone was pretty much shot.  The aftermath photos took place and we all headed back to my parent’s house for drinks and brunch.  The ceremonial Crown Royal shot with the groomsmen and Dad happened in the bar.  I stayed downstairs to watch the Indians/Blue Jays game and took a nap while the kids watched some Leap Frog videos.

It was time for the reception and we all got dressed back in the formal wear.  It was a short drive to the hall and by the time we got there – the party was already starting.  Gotta love the open bar.  It was nice seeing friends I haven’t seen in a while and running into those relatives you only see at weddings and funerals.

The party raged onto the night – people danced, people drank, and people laughed.  It was awesome.  Just before midnight, the lights popped on and it was “closing time” – we still had a full room.  It was time to go.

The day went by really fast – it was almost a blink and the day was done.

I love my little sister Melissa and I welcome my new Brother-in-Law Jared to the family.
