Today begins my journey at 52 years old. I decided I would write once a day for this year. When trying to decide a goal or challenge I guess I overlooked the fact that just writing is a challenge. My schedule has gotten busier, my day way to ful... Read more

I guess I can't be doing that bad of a job if they keep asking me to come back an additional week. So far a two week stay has turned into a five week run. I'm still counting back change and I'm still about 15 to 18 over each day but I do have to... Read more

Temp work is always challenging because even though you've been doing tasks for over 15 years with great success no one at your asssignment knows your capabilities. So when something doesn't balance it's the new guy! I've balanced deposits every... Read more

I like to think as Monday's as the beginning of the week. Sunday is always peaceful and laid back and recharging. Monday is the day you jump in the deep end. I have a long to-do list and a clean slate on my journal and logs. I read a comic yeste... Read more
