The bantering continues. Iran is playing a game - or is playing games - with the entire international community. It would be comical if it weren't for the fact that all of this entails the possibility of nuclear warhead capability in the future for that nation. Any humor in it certainly dies when considering what the Iranian government is doing to it's own people - or at least those that are taking a stand against it and - getting killed in the process.

Monday hath arrived. Not that it's the "Dreaded Day" - just that there is so much work to do, I am not sure that one day will suffice in completing it. So why am I sitting here, typing out an entry? Cause' I ain't signed in yet and I won't be for another 14 minutes.

The last couple of weeks have been nice in terms of having several days off. I intend on asking for a week off here in the next month or 2 - I have plenty of vacation hours saved up and now my floating holidays are reset. Actually, I get a day off for my birthday, perhaps I'll just ask for that entire week off.

Lots of stuff floating through my head these days. Life isn't quite what it needs to be right now. Eeking out a living, having 3 strangers living in my house and basically accomplishing nothing in terms of any eternal sense is not setting well with me. This has nothing to do with New Year's Resolutions, btw. My only resolution started already - to dump some pounds gained after the house fire. I have tried a few times, lost the weight and put it back on, I'm going to try again. I'll undoubtedly break the resolution - but hopefully not before I shed at least 10 pounds, I have 20 that needs to go. I was tipping the scales at 210, it's around 205 right now, getting to at most 190 would be a nice start.

Speaking of weight loss, the newest tenant took all 3 dogs for a walk yesterday. He wanted to do it - you get all kinds of attention when walked dogs that are that large - and yes, he's definitely capable, the man works out daily and has huge arms. Prolly if I started walking those dogs every day I would help myself get some pounds dumped. I'm in some sort of rut that I am finding difficult to break for whatever reason.

Anyway, I haven't much more time this morning, so I bid you a good day and a Happy New Year.

Decatur, Alabama. Got there last night - decided I didn't have enough hours to offload - about an hour and 15 minutes on the clock, tak...
