For readers within the sound of this post…if you have visited here before welcome back. If not…hello, nice to meet ya.
Let the record show an absence of over eight months from this site…nine from my other.
I can’t claim to have been overly obsessed with work. I’ve not been working for two years since resigning my Supply Chain position to – in part – better assist with family health issues. (Sidebar…the fellow who waits on me at Dunkin’ Donuts asked me the other day if I was retired. Didn’t know how to answer him. I may be but just haven’t been formally notified yet. I did have an interview a month ago. Of the five people I met the interaction with the initial person is the one worth noting. Question from him – “Our VP can be pretty rough on employees at times…how would you handle someone like that yelling at you?”)
I’ve kept busy however. Up at dawn daily to Uber the wife to and from her work. Shop. Wash. Clean. Fix. And…continue to try to figure out the next (final?) employment scenario. I know I’m not alone in the journey. And, so many others are far less fortunate than I.
Relocation is potentially on the horizon…but what clearly is in view is another wacky Northeast Winter. Sooooooo…I thought I would hunker down and fire up the blog (blogs?) once more.
I will say this. If I did this again I would have created one blog. The original intent was to have a secondary location for non-sports stuff. I am well aware a lot of folks simply don’t pay any attention to sports. I consider myself pretty well-rounded and that includes not taking sports too seriously. (Sidebar…just heard the Mets re-upped slugger Yoenis Cespedes to a contract guaranteeing him north of $100M…and some of the New York media immediately, openly wondered if he’ll give maximum effort now that he owns a max contract. Yoenis’ situation aside that’s the kind of story we usually see shortly after many athletes cash in…which is but one reason why none of us should ever take sports too seriously…especially their coverage.)
But more heartfelt posts about sports are surely forthcoming. Sports remain an over-sized part of my life even if I view them with ever-escalating arched eyebrows. They aren’t what they used to be but I still can’t call it a day…even if they were surely better back in the day.
That being said I am looking to bring over the non-sports side of myself. I will definitely reblog some prior, time-proof posts to shamelessly take full advantage of this site’s “wider audience.” (Sidebar…pretty easy math…a dozen readers are twice as many as a six-pack…)
Followers…thanks so much for sticking around.
New readers…thanks so much for sticking the landing.
Hope you’ll all stick around.
Time for a new start.
