It is not such a bad day. Depression is a tad deeper than yesterday but that is all. I woke with a headache. I mild one though as these headaches go. No beast. No panic attacks. I slept fairly well only waking a few times. All in all a good day.

I did not even drink my coffee and my wife had me out back building a fire in the fire pit so we can burn off some of the twigs and branches we've accumulated over the winter. I do not normally even move until my coffee is done but when I said I wanted to drink my coffee first she called me a no good, lazy asshole. So I did it for her despite the headache. Now I leave it up to Domani to feed the fire. He is old enough. He should do fine as long as he listens to what I told him.

My head still hurts. The coffee should make it go away. If not there is always the old standby - tylenol.

It is already damn warm out. Must be in the mid to upper 60's. It is supposed to reach the mid 70's today but tomorrow it will only be in the 50's. Still the rollercoaster ride continues.

Last night in work was pure and utter insanity. It was crazy. I had an HF leak on the Alky and the crude still had a tank swing that sent the unit into orbit. I had to be at two places at once. Always a cause for stress. Good thing I have good operators on shift with me. Tonight doesn't look like it will be so bad but I never know until I get into the shift.

Other than Domani who is out back feeding the fire I am alone again of course. My wife waited until I got up this time to go out and do her running. She is always running and I am always alone. Even when she is home I am alone. Inside where it counts. Why that is I have no clue.

Well be good people. Stay strong and remember the magic found in smiles and hugs and laughter. It can change your life for the better if you let it.

      Lucky you. It’s that time of the year. Allergies are a bitch. Here it is in the 70’s and cloudy. Looks like rain.
