Just Writing This Week

Just Writing This Week

I do not have much to write about this week. When I look back at the blog, I seem to find something interesting, at least to me, to share. I guess I’ll just do an update on how things are going for me in general.

Spring Break – right around the corner. We will be back in Indian Rocks Beach again for the fourth time in five years. We skipped two years ago after COVID, but came last year after my mom died because frankly I just needed some time away and a break from things. I am very much looking forward to this year. We always stay at the same place, and this year our unit saw a renovation. I don’t have many plans while there, we think we’ll spend the entire week at the beach or at the pool with one small excursion for a break mid-week.

Career Stuff – lots going on with me at work. Believe it or not I am closing in on four years at my current employer this year. I tend to leave a job around this time for a step up, but I’m kind of at a place that I like. I’m happy with how everything is going, I am challenged at what I do and appreciated for it. Typically I get bored with a job and look for something else, but that’s not been the case here. Granted, this job is really difficult, but I’ve grown so much here. I hope to get at least another year out of it, possibly looking for a change after Ben gets out of preschool. I have no idea what’s next for me as it took a phenomenal amount of work to just get here. I’ll have to spend some time searching for that answer.

Volunteer Work – I’ve stepped back at Dutchman’s Rod and Gun Club and took on a lot more responsibility with the Cub Scouts instead. I’ve also started coaching my youngest son’s soccer team and assisting on the older son’s. I am having so much fun doing it. I really enjoy working with younger people quite a bit. I find that being positive with them and encouragement goes a long way. I can see them try really hard and they’ve improved a lot this season so far.

Health – probably turned a corner here as I’m fit enough now that people notice. My chest, arms, and shoulders are getting pretty well defined as our my legs. I hate core work but I’ll consider doing more of that coming up. I’m in a bulking stage right now and just enjoying jamming on the weight bench while I improve my strength. I recently helped move a piano and didn’t struggle with it. I just love body building and I hope things don’t change and I can keep my lunchtime workouts as that’s how I’ve been able to turn things around for me on that front.
