If I had a top ten list of the weirdest fucking days, today would be one of them. Imagine if you will stepping off a plane from paradise and finding you're being kicked to the curb at your job. Here I had the perfect wedding, a damn near perfect honeymoon (could have done without the cold), and then you're knee deep in bullshit. Throw in the IAAPA nonsense for a little something extra (when you were invited to come in the first place).
But alas, I've done my best to keep a little perspective. After all, I just did get married with a near-perfect wedding and spent a week in Hawaii. We actually spent some quality time today looking at the 1,000 photos from the wedding (did I mention Tyler did an amazing job?) and 600 from Hawaii. It all seemed to have gone by so quickly. But wow, we got to do it right.
Diana already had today off, and as it turns out, that was probably a good thing. The cold I was battling last week was kicking her ass all day, so she spent most of it on her back and lying down. I played the role of dutiful husband and went out to get her ice cream, made a little dinner and got her pills. She's officially my family now.
I did the usual network reboot, so to speak, but things aren't quite as positive as they were in July. I'm not that concerned about it yet. Shit, I'm still on Hawaii time! Again, the never ending adventure of life is sending me off to new territory. I'm still contemplating things, considering the options, evaluating, forming a game plan. It's not easy to start when you have a mostly blank sheet in front of you.
I do have a few things in mind. Obviously I have this stack of projects in front of me, some of which have been lingering for far too long. This time around, I have some degree of confidence that I can finish some of them after the successful relaunch of CoasterBuzz. I think the first thing is to get this new blog engine done. I need to come up with a design that says "Jeff Putz."
Tomorrow's priority is to vacuum up the fur balls all over the house from the four shedding animals, and then start prepping for the stuff I plan to shoot at Kings Island on Friday. Hey, at least I don't need a day off for that!
