How Did I Get Here, And Where Is The Next Turn?

Life, or Something Like It

Sorry, it's been so long, probably the longest I have been away from here. I'd love to say I had a good excuse, but, to be honest, I've been dividing my evenings between Alaxandre Dumas and Farmville 2. Relaxation... I get it anyway I can.

Work has gotten a bit easier. I finally feel like I can do the job with only one or two screw ups a day.

The weird part is that some of my coworkers actually seem to like me, smile when they see me as if they are genuinely happy to see me. It's a big deal to me because I spent so many years avoiding actual contact with strangers. It's odd to me that those strangers have now become friends of a sort. Some of them make me smile, too.

Life seems to become complicated when you join the world. I didn't realize the little things I was missing. Now, I could never go back to the person I was 3 months ago, let alone 3 years ago.

I walk when I can, but my feet hurt more than I expected. I need more cushioning for standing on the concrete floor, I guess. Other aches are becoming fewer, though, and it makes the job easier. I actually wake up looking forward to it sometimes.

The family seems to be falling into a routine. We are adaptable, after all. I miss seeing the boy every day, but I am glad he is living on his own. His life is starting, and I am so proud of the man he has become. It's going to be complicated for him in the future, but I believe he can handle it. I can't really elaborate on that more right now, but I can't wait til I can.

Life. Who'd a thunk I would actually be enjoying it? Fifty, soon to be fifty-one years old, and feeling more alive every day. Crazy, huh?
