I wish I would’ve always lived my life like this.

With my days being numbed in the Midwest, I’ve been actively seeking out places I’ve never been, local family activities I’d typically turn down and pulling the trigger on things I’ve always wanted to do. I mentioned this recent turn of events to my girlfriend and said I wish I would’ve always lived like this. I want to carry this on throughout the rest of my life because tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, and it took me too long to act on this fact.

Don’t be me.

Moms have favorite children. The quietest one on Saturday mornings is my favorite. My son is my favorite wrestling opponent and my daughter is my favorite person to hug when I’m sad.

6 games of Yahtzee is too much.

I respect the military and love football but I don’t want my son involved in either.

When asked if she wanted any of her friends to sleep over before we moved, my daughter replied,”We already had our going away party and I said goodbye to my friends at that time. I don’t want to get close to them again before we leave.” She’s far more mature than I was at her age.

From what I gather from the slew of (average photoshopped) photos I received from my work going away party on Friday, I work with some pretty important people.

The last picture I took from my going away party last night. The first ones were much tamer. Mine lil’ Debby and I.

- I had lunch at Burger King at 7:24AM today. I’m shamelessly hungry again.
- 20 mins to flatiron my hair every morning; looks like shit by 1:00PM. Toss wet washed tresses in Dollar General hair tie; hair kicks ass all day.
- I fail at being fake. I can’t muster up much happiness about moving when I’m beginning to mourn the future loss of friendships. The proof is in the puffy eyes.

My work going away party is tomorrow. For the life of me I couldn’t understand why my best friend rented a room at our favorite dining establishment instead of having the 4 people I have been nice to meet at a dive bar. Today, my party was the talk of the office and beyond. I was surprised when a handful of people told me they would be there along with a few retired people who have touched my life over the past 14 years. I cried all the way home thinking that I may have touched peoples lives as well.

I applied for this job 14 years ago with hopes of a 40 hour work week at $13.75/hr. I never intended to stay this long. Working in law enforcement isn’t easy and I haven’t always agreed with everything decision that’s been made. Working in a 10 story correctional faculty weighs heavy on the soul and I didn’t put it all in perspective when I was 26 years old. But at 39, the perspective has fallen out of the sky, landed on my head and began to wiggle today.

- Car day from Hell. Lifetime warranties on car parts pays off in the end. 
- Long lost high school friend tracked me down at work today. Thank you, LinkedIn. 
- Received email from the job I had a second Skype interview with last week. They’re proceeding with the process by doing two background investigations on me and that means one thing:  I’M CLOSER TO HAVING A JOB!  I don’t want to celebrate until I have a job offer, but I’m pretty darn excited.
