This has all the potential to turn in to a bitching about my job kinda post.
And...let's be honest, if I had been writing this same post a year ago, it probably would be (in fact, it wouldn't surprise me if I did).
Nah...this is just an "I'm kinda tired" post. Not like "sick of it all" tired, just physically tired.
After being sick for a week or so, I jumped back in to my routine of doing a double workout (kickboxing/Hap Ki Do) last night. It had been 12 days since I'd done said workout.
And it literally kicked my ass. Somehow I dug deep and stuck out the full 2 hours, but I'm not going to lie--I really wanted to pack it in and go home after the kick boxing and just take a pass on the Hap Ki Do. I'm glad I stayed. But damn--I'm tired as shit this morning.
I probably wouldn't be, but I had dialed in to work to finish up some things from the day and I had to get ready for my software installations this morning. Net result...I got to bed about 12:30...and was up at 4:45. Sooooooo...I'm a little tired.
Here's what's funny...a year ago I would have been like 'Eff this...' and 'screw this horseshit' But I don't feel that way now. I actually still love my job. It's been almost a year (9 1/2 months) and I still find something cool to dig about my job every day. Sure...I'm a little wiser to the pitfalls as time goes on. And I still get frustrated. The difference is, I'm not frustrated about the job. I'm frustrated because I know we can be doing a better job at helping our customers (the users in Home Office and the associates at the retail locations). So, it's actually more of a motivator to get things turned around.
Who'd a thunk? I actually love my job AND the company I work for. It's really a win-win.
Another upside to having to get up early for installs is that I missed my window to hop in the shower before the high schooler in the house got up. Which means, I get some time to write.
And I'm pretty sure this posts lets me pass the totals for 2011. I'm pretty stoked about that. At some point, I'll need to go back through these posts and see if there's anything work keeping...or re-working in to something bigger, or if they truly are cerebral vomit on the interwebs (as I've oft suspected them of being). Time will tell.
Alright. I think I have just enough time to edit a photo for a client before I need to get ready to face the day.
Have a fantastic Tuesday my friends!

I woke up with a though this morning about love. I sat down to write it as a poem, but quickly realized that my thoughts on it could not be...
