The Thing Worse Than Rebellion...

The thing worse than rebellion is the thing that causes rebellion.

Six Things To Mind

1. When you are alone, mind your thoughts.
2. When you are with friends, mind your tongue.
3. When you are angry, mind your temper.
4. When you are with a group, mind your behavior.
5. When you are in trouble, mind your emotions.
6. When God starts blessing you, mind your ego.

You might want to mind the sixth one too, but never mind actually, the ego could be a problem regardless. Always best to mind it.

And wherever your blessing come from: be thankful for 'em.

12 Hours

Of work. Ugh. Fifteen minute lunch. Three hour drive back and forth.

You gotta chip in when it matters though, big move, the boss'll be slaving away at least tomorrow too, though my part was almost entirely network diagnostics. More running up and down stairs than carrying or packing boxes. And even after plenty of overtime we can't seem to get more than one computer connected at once. Can't reach router interface. Can't troubleshoot properly via router software. Can't create simultaneous connections via any combination of switches and/or modems and/or routers and/or network card configurations... but one's working, and one printer's working, and I'll be back at it on Monday.

Hopefully something magical happens then.

Maybe the only real problem's our modem. It was built (and used) for ADSL. Apart from that we only have switches. We might need something different for the first link.

For now though I'm about to sleep deep and hopefully enjoy the weekend. Maybe even rest up a little. Though we'll be celebrating with some relatives tomorrow and Sunday's Mother's Day and next week we're driving up North on Thursday, hopefully... so maybe no rest for a while now.

Haven't felt this burnt out in a while. But it's a satisfying kind of burn for once, today, network setup failures or no. And the new office actually seems kind of cozy... maybe I'll feel at home there after all. Time will tattle.

I did my best! Now let's get rest. Then let's go battle.

Bruised Ribs, Piles & Smiles (1:28)


Bruised Ribs, Piles & Smiles

I made it through the day I do have appreciation for it!
Slept well most the night though barely slept a mite before it.
Felt pretty down before yet I felt pretty up this morning,
Catching up my dues too, and doin' a little performing.

Not sure I bruised my ribs or just got some muscle soreness,
Could be inflammation, by my sternum not the cortex,
Where the ribs connect, whatever it is though is not important,
Just the pain that it projects, when you try to remain dormant!

I still drove in to work, and it was a day with not much boredom.
Always chores to do and the office move is a thwarting
Any plans to rest up I could have had but more so,
We're driving up Thursday, I'll be a weekend North though it's

So ill-timed with the office move! I feel remorseful!
Wish I could help out more but I gotta rest till I'm ready!
Next Friday will be here real soon and it'll be heavy!
Hope I have no bruised rib cause major time is the remedy! For that.

And then I'll be digging dirt until I get back.
And then I'll be working my ass off until the crack of
July comes with new joy, thought of buying a new toy!
A trimmer for the garden, cause farming's a lot and alarming

But I am rhyming now and it's calming, I'm writing now and it gives me,
A sense I'm doing something with life, I'm living indeed,
The pain seems to be fading and I am feeling privy to
A sense of appreciation I seldom feel in the city.

I smile... don't even mind I got piles!
Diet's adjusting. Fiber and fat or nothing!
I am on track and loving the iron mat that I'm hugging I call discipline!
Letting me live again! I'll see you in a while.
