October 31, 2008

Well, I missed yesterday. Oh, well.

It's Halloween!!! My favorite non-holiday, holiday.

I seem to be in a really good mood today. I just pored a glass of wine, which Vikki had already done for herself, when I got home from work. I guess Vikki was surprised by my mood because she asked if I had already started drinking before I got home.

Inventory day a work today. Jay, my bosses boss - my boss being John, was from Detroit today. Supply problems from one of our vendors has raised some red flags. Since sand is used in drilling for oil and there has been a recent spike in looking for shale oil, supply is being diverted for that purpose instead of for ours. That kind of stuff interests me. I would have liked to be in that meeting.

I did not get to have lunch with Vikki today. I hate that but it did give me the opportunity to have Mexican for lunch. Vikki abhors Mexican.

The day went fast and now I am wanting for trick-or-treaters. I wish we had set up something more elaborate but maybe next year.

October 29, 2008

I'm not sure how to use this.

How do I separate things from one blog and that I have two.

I think, to start, I will try to post this as a sort of diary. Something, in the past, relegated to little girls so that they can write down their thoughts and aspirations. As I get older I think that it may be a remnant of me after I am gone. Also thoughts that I can use it to remind me of me when me starts to forget about me.

Silliness...I'm sort of good at that.

Today, a work day like any other. I am an accountant at the Quikrete plant here in Indianapolis. Work is starting to slow down for the season and I have no problem finishing my work in the eight hours that I am there. Finishing early today, I found myself distracted by using my skills in Excel to figure out the posting problem that Citizens Gas had with our last payment. We have three separate accounts with them: plant, shop, and office. It seems mundane but I find the detail-oriented nature of that type of work to be a relief compared to the ADHD craziness that my mind goes through in my everyday life.

I got home late and my wonderful wife, Vikki, had made chicken stroganoff for dinner. I helped Sam, my adopted son, with his math homework. And now, here I sit wasting time on the computer.
