Soooo…THAT summer happened…

Tomorrow (or today, depending on your time zone), my kids go back to school. Christopher will be going into 3rd grade, Ava in 1st. I’m not sure, but I think summer officially started maybe a week ago? And now they’re heading back to school??? Wow…time goes by when you’re having fun. Needless to say, summer has flown by and now…it’s on to the fall and then winter and then spring and then…uh…summer again?

Interesting cycle we’re in here.

Aaaanyway, this summer, beginning in May, I found myself in Louisville, Dallas, St. Louis, Washington, DC, Seattle, San Francisco, Oakland, Zanesville, Williamsburg, Houston, Milwaukee, Chicago, Canton, Phoenix, Los Angeles & San Francisco (again). Needless to say, it’s pretty much been non-stop traveling ever since the sun woke up and I’m a little worn out. 4 months of moving around, working and trying to cram in as much family time as I can is winding down as the kids go back to school and my schedule actually starts to slow down. Which kinda sucks considering that it should work the other way. I should take more time out for my kids when summer starts and then go back to work when they go back to school…but sometimes things don’t work out that way and I can’t control those things. So…I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Football season is right around the corner and baseball season will, for me, be wrapping up.

I imagine now that my schedule is slowing down a bit, I’ll get back into my writing. I have some projects I want to get working on, some housework that needs to get done and some makeup time with my wife & friends. I am hoping that some of the thoughts I have will pour out of my brain and onto my little blog here, but if they don’t all come rushing out right away, I’m okay with that. But I just wanted to let you guys know that I’m still alive & kickin’. It ain’t been easy and I’m still working as I type (I’m in Phoenix right now), but I can see daylight and I can’t wait to have a little free time to be creative again!

    I’m glad your feeling better, Alan. I can’t get totally what you mean because your life is definitely different than most, but I do have similar feeling right now. Tomorrow is my last day at DEB after eight years! I will get to spend time with my son finally. I feel like I missed so much. Yet I have to tell you it is bittersweet. I feel like I’m selling a home I’ve been in forever…. I want the new home, it’s bigger, better, and what I always dreamed of, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to miss the old one. Oh well, I guess we’re both a little off right now. Love you!
