Yep, Monday I walked in and was told that I wasn't on any of the jobs for the week. I was walking down the steps of the building and was, literally, on the phone to a former employer asking him if he had work.
He did and I started Tuesday.
WHAT A DIFFERENCE! Holy shit! If you guys read my thread about lifting that 300 pound bathtub, you know that my partner was an asshole. I can't even convey to most people how hard it is to be locked up in a bathroom for 8 hours a day, 5 days a week, with someone you want to hit with a hammer. Again and again and again...
This was part of the reason I was coming home so exhausted. I didn't even realize how draining it is to be around a freaking psychic vampire like that. I expended so much energy keeping myself in check that it was affecting everything else. I've been exhausted and sick more times in the last 4 months than I have in the last 4 years.
Stress is a killer.
So I'm working for my old boss and some of the old crew and it's awesome. Today, even though I was lugging buckets full of rocks around and mixing epoxy, I felt like a prisoner of war that had been released. It felt so damn good to actually enjoy not only what I'm doing, but the people that I'm working with.
With all the shit going on for the last year and half (too much to list but some of you have an idea), I actually felt HAPPY today. That's something I haven't really felt in a long, long, time and it was like welcoming an old friend back to town.
Well, thanks for taking the time to read my post. ;) I probably should post it on the OG, but I'm closer to more people here. And if you don't like it, remember that 1) I'm a mod and B) I'm SCRAPPER and I do what I want.
Train hard brothers and sisters,
p.s. I'll be posting an update to my website soon. Anyone have any requests for anything in particular? Sorry, no nudie shots...you gotta pay for those. ;)
