So here I sit in a hotel room in Austin, Texas. I love Texas. I know it isn't cool to love Texas unless you happen to have been born here but I just can't help myself. I love they way they talk, I love the way it looks, I love the friendly people, I love the silly highway system, I love they names they call their cities. I just love it. I think mostly it was because a very good part of my life happened in TX so when I'm here, even if I'm not in Dallas area where I lived, I still feel very comfortable and happy.

My new job has a warehouse here in Austin and tomorrow we get to count inventory. I've not counted inventory in a very long time -- and yuck. But luckily I'm at the point of not really counting inventory but observing the counting, I'm good.

Tomorrow night we might get to go to 6th Street. Nice.

But tonight, I'm tired beyond reason. Which is really weird since I slept very well last night as well as slept a bunch on the plane (weirdest thing my LA gig did for me -- it made me a plane sleeper-- I can't seem to stay awake on an airplane (except for flights home from HK apparently)). It is almost 8pm CA time and I'm done for.

Nighty night.

I guess it all just takes time. I just read the blurb I wrote last and remember. September seemed to be awful. I couldn't figure out why it was so awful but it was.

But slowly and surely I seem to be getting better. I guess it just take time when you loose a parent and finish a marriage all in one year.

October ended up being nuts. A crazy month but one that resulted in me getting a job in San Jose !! I was just about done with the weekly travel to LA. It was okay until it wasn't and when it wasn't I'd about lost my mind. I had three bad flights and knew I was done - and luckily something fell right into my lap! Wow! Maybe my karma has changed. One can hope.

But it still has been so hectic with all that. Mid October I had a week business trip in Orlando. Then came back, accepted new job, quit, worked the following week in LA and then went on vacation to Hong Kong. Came back from HK, did a final week with LA job while starting new job and the officially started new job last week. I'm exhausted thinking about the past month! Crazy.

But distracting. Which I think is good. I still need distraction I think. Oh and the working with adults all day might be fun too! That work from home bit was great until I lost all other social interaction and then it was becoming oppressive. And lonely.

But I'm good. Very good.
