It’s been almost a month. So I figured it was time to check in here. Tomorrow will be a month that I am at my new job. It has definitely been a challenge, and I’m OK with that. I am doing my best and I think people are taking notice. It’s definitely tough out there, nobody wants to be sold anything. I am screaming at the top of the mountains, I am not a salesman. I am here to help you, I am here to advocate for you, I am here to educate you but I am not here to sell you anything. If you’d like to buy something by all means I can help you but I am not judged by how much I sell. That is a great feeling in itself.
When I took the job, a big part of me thought it was great that the office is only a few minutes from home, I can socialize with people and thenyesterday we were told they are going to sell the building so we are all going remote. OK then. I still have a job right. God bless America.
I love my coworkers so far and things are OK. I definitely feel at home here. Just like any other change I am trying to find my way.
Working from home you would think that I could crush it in the kitchen and the gym but to be honest it’s been a very hard battle. I have been gaining and losing the same 10 pounds over and over again for the last two months it feels like. I need to get this shit under control because I am going to Florida and Nashville in the fall and not only want to look at but I sure as hell want to feel good. I have to be able to fit on the rides and at the weight I am at now it’s doable but still uncomfortable. I do not want to be uncomfortable. If that makes any sense. Being home is difficult the kitchen is only a few feet away from the back room and I am always hungry, it seems.
So while my very irish buddy daniel my think that this blog name references him, I feel like shite, Fucker!
I wish I could tell you anything more than I normally do. I am doing my best to not drink too much, to stick to the diet or at least the program, and get to the gym and keep myself moving. It has been very hard to get on the peloton, my heart just isn’t in it.
And that’s OK, I will get back at it. I only have two more payments left and it’s mine, I’m getting use out of it if it kills me. And it might.
I wish I was playing music more often but these last couple weddings have been pretty stressful with details, Covid protocols, getting the band back into the swing of things, and it does not help that well I started my new job, My summer home with the duo will not open this summer because of LCB violations. That not only puts a hurting on my bank account but more so puts a hurting on my soul. I don’t care if it was piped music or not I got to sing. That is what makes me happy, singing. Being a band leader is cool, I like working with the people that I work with, but singing is where it’s at in the end.
So I’m doing my best not to get upset about things I can’t control. I will just have to enjoy my time off even more this summer not at the world is opening up a little bit. 25 summers of crunching is a lot.
I am still here trying. I hope you are too. Don’t be too hard on yourself, it doesn’t matter how many times you have to restart, what matters is that you restart.
Don’t take any shit from anybody.
