A Trying Julying

Hello all you happy peopleAlas, I have found myself once again with too much to talk about combined with infrequent posting so now I have no clue where to start.  July has been nonstop for me; a series of ups and downs, fun and agony.

The high points: I am loved!  I had Linds in town from the 4th – 9th and my parents in town from the 11th – 15th.  I took in SO much of the city.  In no particular order, the first two weeks of July included: Assorted eating establishments, Spamalot on Bway, The Blue Man Group, Transformers the Movie, Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, Top of the Rock, Brklyn Bridge, Southstreet Seaport, Museum of Natural History, Central Park (walking and running), 5th Ave and all that entails and dozens of other little odds and ends.  And here’s the kicker – I still haven’t seen half of everything that’s here.  Not bad for an 8 mile island, right?

Unfortunately, after family and friends departed life picked right back up where it left off.  I came back to work and had a barrage of work waiting to ambush me.  We’re still fighting.  Top that off with *insert personal junk here* and a head cold and the last week and a half has been just ducky.  K, that’s all the selfish moaning I’ll inflict upon you at this time.

I’m really looking forward to August, though.  It should start with a lot of fun because next weekend I’m going to Atlantic City with my poker group to put our Texas Hold’em skills to the test.  Stepping up to the grown ups table, as it were.  I took second at our game last week which helped my confidence, but I’ve never played at a legit table in a casino before.  Sure I’ve been to the boats in Shreveport, LA, but I only played the cocktail waitresses slot machines.  I’m real good at the one where you put in a dollar.  I always win 4 quarters!  Every time!  Anyway, I’ll certainly have a lot to say about that trip win or lose.

I suppose that’s all for now.  I should probably resume my battle to the death with this mountain of paperwork.  I have a lot of topical blogs I’m drafting, so maybe I’ll get a few of those up in the next couple of days weeks months.  I hope you’re all having a wonderful week.

Y’all be good,
J

PS – Sorry about the lame change machine joke 😉
