    Default I'm coming out

    of retirement..........

    I took a job a little over a week ago, and my trip out of town today officially ends my almost 2 year run of retirement.....it's amazing how much stuff you suddenly have to get done before going back to work...........lol......

    I was watching a movie last night and kept thinking how odd it is that tomorrow I'll be traveling to Kentucky for work......though I would probably be thinking it was weird period even if I was staying in town.........

    Of course I got my mountain bike tuned up, upgraded a rear shock, added disc brakes, new wheels, and tires.......all in time for it to snow for 2 days this past week, then for me to take a job that will have me on the road M-F pretty much for the next 2 years.......lol.....brilliant.....

    I'm actually am ready to go back to work (the past 2 years thing has been totally voluntarily), so it was good to get a job fairly quickly in the grand scheme of actually looking.......because most of that 2 years was spent golfing, biking, chiropractoring (blah), moving, visiting family, and a lot of just sitting on my ass doin nothing and loving it (not gonna lie).....

    Anyways, I have to finish getting packed and make sure that i don't forget anything........y'all have fun........lord knows mine's about to end.........lol.......

    Aw that sucks that you have to go back to work but at least you got a lot of time off to do stuff. I hope that you like your new job anyhoo. Good luck.

    I'm some sort of Implementation/Trainer Specialist.........not entirely sure how involved it'll be yet, but it's back to traveling all the time which I'm not entirely thrilled with, but it's a better situation than the one I left (at least on paper at this point)........

    We're going to start the Midwest until June/Julyish, then 3 weeks off, then Northern California until the end of the year then 3 weeks off, then Southwest, 3 weeks off, and then Southeast.........i get to bill out 32 hours for each of those 3 weeks off so they don't have everyone jump ship while not working.......it's a good way for me to get back into the working thing.........lol........

    Commuting from Utah to Kentucky on a bike everyday may be a little tiring, no matter how you got your bike rigged.

    BOOOORING!!!

    I thought you were about to come out and say you're nailing some hot chick, then I have to read something about heading back to work.

    Well ok, since it's you, I'll say GOOD LUCK and have fun! ;)

    Good planning and savings........granted, I stayed retired (ha) longer than I should have, but for now I plan to bulk up the bank account and be comfortably back in the black within a few months......

    Trust me... there's plenty to do in Louisville. Try to hit up Bardstown Rd in the Highlands. Really bohemian with a million and one used record stores. Also, there's a really cool vintage stereo shop on that stretch where you can really score some deals.

    Also, the music scene is top notch. I've really missed it since moving to Atlanta.
