Yes, we have blogs here. I thought it was time that someone tried to use then.

I know, I haven't been around as much lately. Things with Michelle and work have me feeling like I'm going insane at times. Michelle's health is a constant issue that we have to struggle with pretty much daily. Her father has been staying with us helping for almost a year now, which is a struggle as well. It is great having his help, and I really appreciate it, but it isn't easy living with him.

Work has been insane. I live 65 miles from work, and due to Michelle's health and our financial situation, we are unable to move any closer. If I drive to work, it takes just over an hour to get to work, and sometimes as much as 2 hours to get home. That means I'm gone from 8am until between 6pm and 7pm (later if I have to work late). Then there is the cost of gas with that. To offset the cost, I have started taking the bus to work. It is a considerable cost savings, but my time suffers as a result. I have to leave the house at 5am, and I don't get home until 8pm.

I'm tired. I'm worn out. I lack the enthusiasm I once had here. I try to find the desire to post in the RP threads, but it is hard. I pray for Michelle's continued improvement, so that we can have at least a half-way normal life. I wish I could switch careers, find a job closer to home. I can't do that while Michelle is so sick. I am between a rock and a hard-place with no way out. I just look to each day, and try to make it through one day at a time.

    Hopefully Michelle's health and your financial situation will improve Jason. When that happens your enthusiasm will return.

    What would you like to switch careers to?

    It isn't so much a career change as a location change. Wrong choice of wording on my part. I want to get a job closer to home to get rid of the commute. Not easy to do, for a number of reasons.

    Ah I see.

    Hopefully you'll be able to do that eventually.
