It is a good day as these days go. The depression is mild. The beast is but a faint whisper. No panic attacks. I did sleep well although I woke with another headache. It wasn't a killer and it soon enough passed after I took some Tylenol.

We have to go pick up Maddy at 4 PM then take her home at 7. It hardly seems worth it but those are the terms of the custody agreement. And it is worth it to my son. Plus we get to see her for a little while which is a bonus.

Work last night was a bitch. Too much going on. I ran my ass off all night long. It was hectic to say the least. We had a major system to take out of service on the Alky. For maintenance repairs. That meant that after it was out of service we had lots of purging to do. They have to open one of the vessels to fix a leaking flange. On the HF unit that is always a big deal involving fresh air which is also always a big deal.

I feel good today. We have lots of sunshine although it is quite windy and cold outside, Still I will take the sunshine over the gray days any day of the week.

Miah and Tally are here again today along with their father so I am not quite alone although it feels like I am. They are both sleeping right now. Down for naps. God bless them both but they wear me out. Little engines that could if you know what I mean. They never stop going until suddenly they are asleep. Then they wake up and it is full speed ahead.

My wife was out again this morning when I woke up. She had DJ to get off to school. I don't understand why my youngest couldn't do it. I mean she worked last night too but I remember getting up early after a midnight just to do such things when my kids were little. Besides she should have gotten up early just to start getting her body ready for dayworks this weekend. I remain on nightworks for the weekend since I swapped. Then I am off for a week of working down in North Carolina. I have a tub to rip out in the old bathroom and I have painting I hope to get done. I really should work on the ceiling of the deck too but I have no way to go get plywood without a truck. I'm not sure if I could get it delivered or not. My wife would also like to see me rent a bobcat to level out the driveway but again I have no way of picking it up or returning it. The driveway really needs a drainage system put in to stop it from washing out. I need a backhoe for that. Same issue there. No way of picking it up or returning it. I say we should hire someone to fix the driveway and put in the drainage system but we don't have the money for that.

Well be good people. Stay strong and always face the world with a smile. Never refuse a hug and try for at least one good laugh per day. There is real life changing magic in smiles and hugs and laughter. Let it change yours.
