Man have I been burning it at all ends lately or what? One full-time job as a car wash district manager, one part-time job as a business instructor two nights per week, and working security for Texas Tech football games and various concerts. Then it goes without saying that I have a beautiful wife that needs time with her husband, a perfect little boy, and of course Emma. Emma's a job all herself. Every day I get up and go wake up my beautiful little boy from his slumber and make his breakfast. While he eats breakfast I set out his clothes for the day, pack his lunch, and gather up his school binder and set them by the door. Once that's done, I go and dress myself and complete any grooming tasks I may have neglected the night before. Once I am ready and dressed, it's time to get Bren to brush his teeth and then fix his hair. With any luck, we have a few minutes left to just sit and watch Spongebob together. In a few more days, there will also be soccer practice 2-3 times per week and games on Saturdays. (I gave up coaching, but that's another story).
Hmmmmm, what have I missed? Oh yeah, that whole diabetes thing. Of all the things I have to do in the morning testing my blood sugar just hasn't been a priority. Diabetes just hasn't been a priority. It's there. I know it. But it has taken the proverbial back seat to all the other things going on in my life right now. Strangely enough, while I haven't given it a whole lot of thought, it's constantly at the front of my mind. Does that make sense? With the prospect of my car washes selling soon, I will have to enter the job market for the first time in 8 years. The difference now as opposed to 8 years ago is that I cannot just take any job at any pay with any benefits package anymore. It has to be a relatively high-paying job with benefits that begin at the latest after 30 days of employment.
Hopefully returning to the blog will get my mind right about diabetes again. Very soon.
