Welcome to my crappy website. It truly is a bootleg bunch of crap, but I don't care. Not at all. I'm not doing it just to entertain you scumbags; I'm doing it because writing is fun but I am too lazy to actually write a real book. Don't laugh because I'm serious.

ANOTHER DISCLAIMER: Why are you still here? Chances are pretty damn good that I WILL insult you in some fashion if you choose to continue beyond this point. The purpose of this site is to entertain me, and I am often entertained at the expense of others. Therefore, prepare to be slandered. A lot. It's still not to late to leave with your feelings intact!

Monday, 9-19-22: I should finish the downstairs.
I'm gonna head downstairs shortly and try to finish a small part of the ceiling, some painting and some trim so that gym down there is finally complete. All I wanna know is why? Why didn't I finish it yet? Because I SUCK! It's so close to done, too. I can use the gym, but I have a coner of it still filled with scrap wood and a few other pieces and parts. This is how it looked in the spring:

I do have the treadmill down there now, we moved it down a few days ago, but it's still a bit of a mess. What a bunch of crap! I did get a good workout in earlier, and I really like having the gym here at the house. Too bad I only use it a couple times a week on average, though...

I did go to the midcoast yesterday because Jess took my MOD shift. She wanted the hours and I didn't so that's a win. However, it's not a win because I didn't even tell Kat I was going until an hour before I left. Does that make me a bad husband? I knew she'd get pissy with me and try to find a way to convince me to stay and help with the restaurant. She did get pissed off, too. What a bunch of crap! I'm sick of doing things for other people almost all the time; I'm starting to really hate my life and the only way to start to fix my shit is to bring back a balance. That means doing more things that I actually enjoy doing including going deer hunting this fall. Yesterday wasn't a hunting trip, but Jason and I spent a few hours in the woods getting ready for it. We hung some stands and cut some shooting lanes. Made a little bootleg ground blind for Dad at Jason's lot 88. Had a nice lunch with Mom and Dad. It was a great visit. Too bad it was soured by my wife getting all upset...

Jason bought a beautiful piece of property at a dead-end not too far from where we grew up and used to go swimming when we were kids. He actually bought the land a couple years ago, but I only started hunting with him there last year. It's full of deer because it's a combination of old hardwood forest and grown-in farm land with lots of apple trees. Very private, too. He also has his own amazing land that is great to hunt on, and Mom and Dad's property always yields at least one deer for Dad. The hunting has never been better down there, ever, and I always get stuck up here too much so that needs to change this fall and for the future. For all we know this might be Dad's last year being able to hunt at all...

I guess my "hobbies" and interests don't take up too much precious... precious time each year. Hunting in the fall takes quite a bit if I actually take it seriously, but doing yoga, lifting some weights, and playing racquetball each week doesn't take that long yet I so often find reasons to fuck it away and not do it enough. What a bunch of crap! I have a few other things I enjoy doing, but I can do those with Kat so all I need to do is balance it all out. So far I'm bad at that. Like, really bad. Epic failer me.

^Awarded to myself for not doing enough of the things that I enjoy doing in life. That has to change now.

I'm gonna drag out my bow and see if I can zip a few arrows before I do any more work. I gotta wax the strings and hope the rubber piece that holds the peep sight in place isn't rotted away. If it is rotted no shooting for me today! I should have started shooting my bow in August, but I suck. A lot.

Speaking of sucking a lot, the Red Sox are in last place what a bunch of crap! Their season is all but over, and the Patriots are 1-1 in the early season. I haven't watched a Patriots or a Red Sox game in a long time other than some TV highlights. Yesterday when the Pats were playing (and winning) Jason and I were both in the woods. He and I haven't done anything like that in years so I'm really glad I was able to get off work to go. Plus I got to see my nephew and niece so it was a good day all around for me.



Saturday, 9-17-22: First update of the month because I stay busy. A lot.
I haven't updated this turd-heap in 18 or 19 days. What a bunch of crap! Ah well, I gots a lot going on even though I don't totally feel overwhelmed like I often have over the past couple years. I dragged out some hunting clothes and treated them with anti-tick-spray, and I plan to spend some time in the woods tomorrow. Maybe? Hopefully! I am on the schedule to work, but I think I have it covered so I can go down to the midcoast tomorrow. It's not time to bowhunt yet, but I want to help Jason do some setup on his land and also stop in and see Mom and Dad. I'm trying to get down to the ol' homestead every couple weeks through fall. Last time I was down there I had to help clean out this:

^Under the back deck. That corugated plastic keeps out rain so they can put stuff under there, but over a decade it collected a lot of leaves and junk so the only way to clean it is to take every panel down, and there are a lot of individual panels. Dad and I worked on it together and got a little under half of it done last time.

Also, all this wook still needs to get stacked and put under that deck:

^Two cords delivered by Cliff over the summer. Their Black Lab, Amos, is kind of an asshole. He means well, but he gets too crazy when all you even try to do is pet him. He loves to run so I try to run around with him in the yard every time I go visit. He plays fairly rough, but he is a good dog. He's just obnoxious.

This month has been flying by. I'm working more shifts at the restaurant, and I've learned most of the kitchen so I might take some cooking shifts into the fall if we still struggle to find one more line cook. We interviewed a couple candidates, but no one seems like the right fit so we'll keep looking. We are considering reducing our hours and cutting out lunches entirely Tues, Wed, and Thurs, but that's still only a 50/50 thing. We've had decent enough lunch sales since Labor Day so we'll roll with our weekday lunches for now. Cutting down on hours is not an easy thing to do because it affects a lot of the staff.

The Bangor Waterfront concerts have hurt us a lot this summer, and thankfully they are almost over. There is a concert tonight and tomorrow so maybe we'll do some good supper sales before the show starts. Maybe? Hopefully! I think the last concert is next Thursday night, Stevie Nicks. That would be a great one to attend, but we work too much to even put something like that on our radar. She's in her 70s now so the chances of her coming back to Bangor are really slim. Oh well, I've never been a huge concert fan anyway. Too many people, too many lines to get in and out, beer costs $12, no thanks.

I'm about ready to head back to work for the evening. I did make time to jog and talk to Phil on the phone for a while this afternoon. The weather has been great, a tad on the crisp side with nighttime lows in the 40s and highs "only" in the 60s the past few days. Great weather to go for a jog. I still can't go more than 2 miles without having to walk some, though. What a bunch of crap! I have a lot more that I should write about, but I'm out of time for today so it will have to be next time. At my current pace I won't even write another update at all this month. Gods damn it! I think I'll have time for at least one more update next week...
