The lull before the storm.

Heard of that expression? Me Too. Too bad that in my life, I seem to get advanced view of the upcoming storms.I can tell precisely when we are getting bad weather. My head is a forecasting machine! Today I can tell you we are getting slammed. I can drug up, but honestly nothing will help. I could describe the headache, but 20 years of them has dulled my reaction to them. You get used to the pain. The pain is not fresh, but a reminder of previous headaches that I've tried to put out of my mind.
The best thing I can do is recall the expression, this too shall pass.

February Blahs

It's February 15th and I'm glad it's sunny, cause I can't take much more of the cloudyness.
On Sunday.. we also had some sun and Tess was in her glory. She was flopped out in the warming sun acting like she owns the place. Quite cute to watch.
Hun and I are both in interview stages for new jobs. Who will get the job first??
If I was a betting man, I'd say Hun will get the offer before I will.
Ain't American Idol a pip to watch? It's better this year I think.
Hun & I saw Brokeback Mountain this weekend and we thought it was very well done and a good movie, but the ending was ambiguous. I'm kint of a happy ending sort of movie goer as well, and this was not that sort of movie. That being said, we may try and see 8 Below this weekend, or Syriana.
Too many movies to see, not enough time!
I am sort of sick..I'm getting itermitent symptoms, so I'm resting and taking care of myself.

Death and Taxes
It was a pretty boring night in the Mike household. I did my taxes.
First off, I had to buy the darn software package and to be honest, now that I've done my taxes online, I will NEVER go back.
So to fill you in.. I pay close to 40% of my income in taxes. Now It's time to pay the piper. I owe my retirement fund 650$ that I borrowed a few years ago to buy my house.

Warts and all.

Turns out I have not one but two planters warts on my feet. The treatment is a bitch.. acid on the bottom of my feets!
And you know what else??? Turns out I'm not perfect. I'm just human after all. Too bad it took me 35 years to realize it.

I need to quit being so hard on myself and learn to relax about a lot of things. Easy to say, very hard to do. Why do I need to get so hung up about stuff?
So the motto of today is ...
"Get overyourself Mike and enjoy life!"
