I had to take a break.  Starting a new job, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years…..  it all barely got too much to handle.  I contemplated starting over with a new site and just deleting this one, but I decided against that after thinking about it a little while.  No one I know in real life knows I have this and there isn’t anything I need to run away from.

A lot has happened but I’ve coped quite well considering.  My job is going really good, like better than I ever thought it would.  I was on the fence as to whether I wanted to get into an alternative IT field when I started in October.  Surprisingly I’ve found a stride and due to my experience, I have not had not to prove myself every step of the way.  In IT that’s a good thing as it quickly establishes respect with co-workers.

Things with the wife are getting better since last Summer/Fall as we’re both working on making things better.  We’re both not ready and were not ready to throw in the towel on our relationship.  There are still things that cause issues and although I used to get angry or walk away, I’m instead telling her what is bothersome rather than getting angry and not talking.  It’s helped but at times it has had unintended consequences that have caused some rough spots.  In the end though, its opening the communication we both forgot we had and she is not starting to do the same thing.

I’m hoping I have more time to get online, but I can’t make promises.
