Well folks hows things in your life? Things here are ok. Just lots on the 'ole mind. Got 'bout two and a half months until my contract with the MED is finished. Lease on the apartment is up in May. Been thinking what to do past then. Really other than my son and family my obligations here are finished in June.
Aureus has been calling alot. Remember thats the travel company I went to CT with? They treated me ok. The pay was alright. They may be having some travel work come open in north west Arkansas. I've been thinking about moving to that area anyway. Its nice up there. Trees, lakes and streams and mountains. Everything I've been looking for.
Everytime I mention going I get a lot of flak about it. Especially from people who say that they care about me. Sometimes I think its just for their own selfish reasons. They don't want to talk about it. They don't seem to realize how burned out I am. How the pressures of life are weighing heavily on me. How I have enough to worry about, how I don't know how much longer I can carry my own baggage and theirs too. God gave me broad shoulders for a reason, but I seem to remember that He rested for at least one day.
Thirteen weeks would do me good. Give me time to recharge the batteries. Think about the rest of my life. And maybe un-shoulder some baggage. Might even help me out financially.
I don't know folks. Anyone out there have any words of wisdom for me. looking for any advice. 'bout at wits end here.

A Day Out!

Had a great day riding four wheelers with Jay. Went mud bogging, trail riding, and hill climbing. And one of the trails kinda wandered thru a creek. Needless to say the water was cold, but we had a great time splashing thru the water.
Jay got stuck a few times and we came home muddy and wet but happy. It's days like this that makes all the hours I work worthwhile. Somehow the crap that comes with dealing with the finer citizens of Memphis just doesn't matter that much.
It's great to hear him laugh at getting stuck. I know that I don't have that many years left with him like this. Soon he's gonna be busy with his friends, girls, and his own life. I just hope that I can be as involved with him as he will let me.
Hope all is well in your world. Things here are going well. Drop me a line and say HI. peace!
