Random Sunday thoughts.
Weird feeling just now, a simultaneous sense of bewilderment at how quickly this year has gone by and the notion that I've only been at the new job for six months. Feels like I've been there longer, but at the same time where the hell has this year gone?
It feels good to be in an environment where I feel like I'm constantly improving. I'm increasingly happy with the work I'm doing, and the projects I've got planned for the next two months are going to be on a level I've never had the resources to pull off before. I'm also eventually going to finish assembling my next book, hoping that happens sooner rather than later but it's not easy to squeeze it into the schedule right now.
Kids are still asleep, which almost never happens. Two nights of late fireworks in a row was a lot for them to deal with. They've been all over the place the last couple of weeks, we've never had a Summer schedule quite this busy. Might just be me being selfish, but I'm really glad my family is all in one place today. We're just going to chill, and that's going to be good for all of us I think.
Need to get the bike fixed this afternoon, and I need a helmet. Even if I'm just doing rides around the block every morning, I need something. Need to be more active. Have to keep this positive progress going, especially with how much better I feel having ditched caffeine and sodas. I still feel that buzzing in the back of my brain when I see or am offered something sugary, but it's nice knowing I don't need any of it.
Anyway, back to the world.
