So… errrmm… Hi. I feel like i have some explaining to do… so here goes:
I was cruising along in my own little world (literally), sending my problems to visit Mr. Davey Jones at the bottom of the ocean (metaphorically).
Then I get something like this in my inbox:
…A ‘wall of a reminder’ outside of the usual blogshaming and rib-jabbing from the usual sources.
So what have I been up to lately?
May: Percocets May Cause Floatation?
I had my right testicle removed on May the 5th, and was basically down and out for 2 weeks. I guess I didn’t realize how many nerve endings there are down there, until the damn thing’s gone. I was in pain for about 4 weeks, wherein I just said “To hell with this sedentary crap” and started playing baseball again. I don’t think I’ll take being able to stand up unassisted and without pain for granted again. For those with those issues all the time, my heart really goes out to you. Those were a tough two weeks and I can’t imagine what that’d be like all the time.
I largely passed the time by playing World of Warships, wherein I got really good at the game (that is to say, NOT a potato). It’s been a tough habit to break. I also had a lot of company while playing Boats though; we have our own Boats Posse:
I have to admit, I bought heavy into the premium ships, but when something like this comes along you can’t exactly say no…
Basically I got a raise in late May early June that prompted me to treat myself. I thought it would also serve as inspiration to help me finish her sister ship, the Bismarck. That has yet to be the case.
June: Alaska! Also – MOAR BOATS!
My wife and I took a few weeks to visit some family up in Alaska. It was gorgeous up there, another beautiful mountain hiding behind the next.
Coming home, I got back to work. Late board meetings, training new hires, and built up work over the past month or two due to surgery recovery and vacation. It’s been a big stretch, but I’m finally at a point where I can sit down and write a bit.
Except I’ve had a lot of time. I’ve spent that time playing Boats.
So that more or less brings us up to speed on where I’m at.
Where I hope to be in the near future is back to my painting desk (it’s a quick swivel away from my boats machine) and proceed with my regular painting schedule and blog posts. That was fun before, and I’m not exactly gimped anymore.
