Just to write

Wow - I'm not really sure what to say. A friend has prodded me to write and so here I sit in "our" Starbucks - the one near my boy's apartment. We come here with such great regularity that we've dubbed it "ours".

I guess I could give an update of my life. I'm still working at SAFC. It's a job. They've implemented a "Career Progression Program" which doesn't really amount to a whole lot more than that they are bringing our site in line with the payscale of their other sites. As a result I am now listed as a senior operator which came with a decent raise - which was half of what they told us it would be when they first introduced the program. But at least now I finally can do a little more than live paycheck to paycheck. And maybe some day I can consider contributing to my 401k again.

The program went into effect last January. We were put on a 6 month observation period - which was more a formality than anything else - to ensure that we functioned at the new levels we would be promoted to. Unfortunately, today is the first new "normal" paycheck I've received. In November I had sinus surgery which made me miss a lot of work ON TOP of all of the work I missed due to the complications I was experiencing leading up to that.

While working last night I noticed that I was fully functioning and not the space cadet I've been for months now. That was a nice change of pace.

The rest of my life continues to be its regular ups and downs. Thought I had found the yin to my fetish yang, but that's gone silent on me. Another Master who was all hot and heavy for me and too busy to do anything about it.

Things are still good with my boy. He's been out of town this week for work and will be heading out of town for a week again next weekend.

And I'm rambling about nothing.

Joy and sadness
It fills me with great joy to see you sharing your life and writing this way. So gifted. And my heart is sad for you that you have experienced another disappointment in your life. And I was wondering what I would become since I am no longer Married Man. ;-)
