I've been gone a while.
Mostly because of the job. Some know, some don't, I started a new job at the beginning of May. Honestly, it's an old job. I had this position once before with this station, but they came back with new management, new ownership, and the old proverbial "offer I couldn't refuse" and so I took it and saved myself 3K a year in gas alone. (And yeah, I busted their balls on the salary as well.
So far so good, and still no complaints on that front.
SWMBO on the other hand has been itching to quit smoking, so she did after going for a walk around the block with my youngest who's 3 and hell on wheels.
After her walk she put up with the chest pains she was having for a week and then I said enough, get yer ass into the doc. This was last Wednesday. Thursday started, and wasn't any better. So she went to the Doc. Who then sent her to the hospital to get checked out. They then ran a heart cath and promptly found blockages. A 90 percenter, 2 80's, a 60, and a 40. We were then quickly shipped over to the hospital in our area that's notoriously good at fixing these probs. (she was looking at either stents, or bypass) Friday started with her getting 4 stents a lifetime Plavix Scrip, upped Lipitor dosage, and more, plus a whole new diet for her and the family.
Not bad for 43 years old huh?
(FWIW her Dad died in 1973 at age 41 from similar conditions)
Needless to say I haven't even thought about brewing a damn thing since the end of April, but in a weird way, this latest thing has given me quite the interesting perspective on Life. And since I'm going thru EdWort's Apfelwein faster than I should be (
) I guess I better finish cleaning up the basement and get on with it then....
Good seeing you guys.
