So it has been awhile.. It's Sunday morning and I'm drinking coffee and jamming Van Halen's Live without a Net DVD on surround sound. I love Sundays and I'm happy to be alive and healthy.
A lot has happened lately. I went in to meet with my commander two weeks ago and asked to be replaced in my new position. Back in Oct I blogged that I was the new Emergency management NCO for Sheppard AFB. I was asked to step up by the out going manager and against my better judgment, I accepted the position.
Well I have 7 months left before I retire and the day to day stress is killing me. This position is more suited for a person with the next higher rank than I hold, but I thought my strong personality would make up for the lack of rank. Nope, didn't happen...and the day to day dealings with commanders and management from outside agencies was eating my lunch. So I did what I've never done in my 20 year career. I walked in to my commander and said sir, "I quit". He wasn't real happy but he understood my frustrations. So as you can imagine, the whole ordeal was a blow to my ego. I moped around on my pity pot because I quit something. However, the other part of me was saying look dude...you cant leave the military with ulcers and stress.
So the 20th is my 41st birthday. I'm bummed out because I'm 20 lbs overweight going bald and I cant get any ladies to smile at me anymore. I'm happily married and such, but I think I should still be able to catch an eye of a hot chick now and then. Although if I did get some play, I wouldn't know how to react. All I want to do anymore is play guitar play drums or surf the net for music stuff. I don't even surf for porn any more.
And Christmas.....I haven't finished my shopping yet. I put lights up last weekend and it took an act of congress to get me to do that. Bahh friggen humbug.
On an upnote, I interview for a management position at the store in January. I'll be traveling to Amarillo to meet with our owners, to talk things over. Keep your fingers crossed...
That's enough whining for now. See ya.....
