I am not a big fan of March for a lot of reasons, but the biggest reason is that it is our fiscal year end for the company I work for. That means staying late at work a lot, doing work, which I am not a fan of, and lots of pressure. Pressure isn’t a good thing because if you make it through the pressure, then you grow. No one needs growth(especially the one on my head). I certainly don’t. Needless to say, when Friday was over, I could finally breathe a sigh of relief (technically there was a few days left, but I don’t work Saturdays or Sundays). It’s nice to be able to breathe again, after a whole month of not breathing.
In contrast to the whole crazy month of work, I had a decent weekend. The weather was actually nice in Seattle. We had warm and sunny at the same time, which is like rare meeting mystical meeting magical. You might see one of the three in a lifetime, but never all three at the same time(or two, making the metaphor null and void. Or is that a simile? Gosh darn English class fail!). I got to spend some time with my kids and wife working in the yard. Another mystical/magical/rare triumvirate(or diumvirate for the early part of the metaphor/simile). My wife liked it because I was doing work and my kids liked it because they actually saw me do some work(they are used to seeing me on the couch). Also, I got some writing group in and they gave me some good feedback. My book doesn’t suck after all!
To top it off, Easter Sunday was a pretty nice combination of candy, church and bright colors. Instead of the couch, I tried something new and laid in our Love Sac (a glorified bean bag chair) and instead of playing Gears, I played a little Bioshock. They don’t call me crazy for nothing. I love to mix it up! Even Amazing Race was amazing because the team I thought was going to get eliminated didn’t and the one I thought was going to stay, got eliminated. All in all, just such a great weekend. Oh and one more thing. I won the lottery, so I don’t think I want to do this blog anymore.
April Fools suckers! Aren’t you glad you read all the way to the bottom? Did you really think that there was nothing to be bitter about? Everything I do, everything that happens to me is bitter! All bitter, all the time.
