Back to the Grind

I have to regain my focus.  I was focused with things I wanted to do until I got the opportunity to do it.  There were issues I was hoping would have been resolved by now.  The most glaring of which is I still do not have a car.  This should be taken care of within the next month.

One of my goals has been accomplished.  Working out is now part of my daily regiment.  The workout includes treadmill and swimming.  I had lost ten pounds since I started working out (but I had gained three of it back due to a lapse of overeating.)

Before you decide to vote for a Republican because of runaway government spending from the Democrats, ask yourself when the last time Republicans cut spending or balanced a budget.  Contrary to what the talking heads tell you, the Republican Congress and Bill Clinton never balanced a budget.  The best they did was slow down deficit spending.

Back to Blogging

There has been a lot going on in my life over the last couple of months.  I will sometime soon summarize some of what has been happening.  Right now, I have much to recollect, like my falling off many of my goals for 2010 (I have recommitted myself to those goals and will write about them tomorrow.

I have moved to a place where I will have more privacy and more time to blog.

The Nomadic Life

I don’t always like it, but I have been nomadic pretty much my entire life.  I have moved a total of 26 times.  I haven’t done anything criminal, but I have done some stupid things.  The longest I have ever spent in one place was four years (I did that twice).  I have lived in six states, twelve counties, and seventeen towns.

The first eleven moves were done before my eighteenth birthday.  Some moves were for safety reasons, some were financial, and one because the house burned down.  It was one reason why I found it difficult to make friends.  It did not help that after a few moves, I didn’t try as hard to make friends because I didn’t know the next time I was going to move.  I have lived in the big city and in the remote outposts.  I have lived alone and with others.  I have been well off and dirt poor.

One thing I have learned with all of the moving I have done is to be comfortable with myself.  No matter where I have moved to, there I am.  It is also important to find something to like about the area where you are living.  Maybe there is a nice park nearby.  It could be that shopping is nearby.  You might enjoy being away from everything.

The end of February will bring yet another move.  It will bring a new environment and other things to learn.  New garbage pickup days, new recycling laws, possibly a new cable system with channels in different places.  All of the constant newness is getting old.
