It's a beautiful day for an 8 mile speed run.

Well, that's the goal today, and i will be putting the trusty garmin to the test as i can't go run on my local track as school is in session and since i have to bartend tonite, i have to get my run done prior to 2:00.

i must admit to not being great at being between jobs. i seem to be making my way through my honey-do's and the pool is almost open. The yard is in great shape. The garage is clean.

What else do i do with my time?

Well, good question. Jimmy is spending the most time with me that he ever has, and we are really having fun. Most of Jimmy's life, i have been working a full and part-time job. Ooops, not exactly father-of-the-year stuff but, he hasn't spent a lot of time in daycare.

Thanks to my friend Steve, who let me borrow his extra copy of Guitar Hero II. What guy hasn't danced around his bedroom as a young child, air guitaring with a tennis racket????? And while Fun Guv is tired of the click-click noise of the pseudo-guitar, she's had moments when she wants to play too.

And now Jimmy and Mack's favorite song list consist of "Shout at the Devil" "Surrender" and "Tattooed Love Boys" Rock On

Yesterday, my new laptop and printer arrived from the new employer. It is nice to see work stuff showing up but.....passwords and study materials still need to arrive. Soooo, right now it's just a big box in the middle of the family room.

Lastly, just a quick thanks to all the well wishers on the new job. Thanks Everyone.

Well not quite last, but as i typed this, UPS man shows up again with another packet from new employer. Yipppeeeeee!!! Now i just need my study material, schedule and first conference call info.....i almost feel like a working man again!!!!!!

Thanks for reading.

almost there...keep it up...don't push the speed run too much... is it really going to improve your time that much....starting a new job/assignment is both exciting and overwhelming as i can currently attest.

Um, I say fire up said new laptop and surf the net and website of your new employer for some study materials. ;)

Yeah, and download some porn! And an illegal copy of Rush "Working Man." That'll learn 'em!

Nick is currently learning "Sweet Child of Mine" on his guitar...I hear the beginnings of the solo over and over and over again coming from his room. Gotta love that era if you are looking for big, grandiose guitar solos.
