Has it been 3 months already??

On Friday night we go back to nights at work.  Normally I have dreaded this in the past.  Not this time though, this time I am embracing the change.  On days this rotation it has been busier than you can imagine.......ALL THE TIME!!!!  Not only was it busy, the crooks have become even more child like.  I mean,  I know I work in an adult day care, but seriously, when you are 30+ years old do you really need to play grab ass and fart on other 30+ year olds???  It is ridiculous, and I just about flipped out last night when dealing with these idiots.

So yes, I am totally looking forward to nights and a break from all the action.  Of course if I get this new job in the jail I will be right back on days, but I will only have to deal with the crooks on an individual basis instead of 40-50 at a time.  

With all of that said, I realize I have not posted any photos in a while.  Here is a couple I have taken recently.  The first one is the cap of some boot cleaner.  I thought the macro on this made the bristles really look neat.  It is not much, but the winter weather has kind of put me in a funk for picture taking.

I am in a group on Flikr that is like a 365 photo group, but instead of daily photos we do a weekly shot.  Last week was self portrait week.  I was a bit uncomfortable with this, as I am not a big fan of getting my picture taken.  But, I finally sucked it up and took a few shots.  This is the one that I posted in my group.

Well that is about it for now.  I must start making lunch for the child and pick up this dump hole we call a house.  It is amazing how quick a 2 year old can destroy the cleanliness of a room!!

There are a precious few moments in ones life when you know, without a doubt, that you are witnessing true history that someday your daughter will learn about when she is in school.  In my life so far, I have witnessed the Berlin Wall falling, the 9/11 attacks and now the inauguration of the first African American President.  I am sure there are more that I am forgetting, but these are the ones that really stick out in my mind.  

I watched the swearing in, and the first speech by our new President while I was at work.  I felt like I needed to wittiness this moment in time.  i needed to see the oath as it was recited, and I needed to watch as our new President gave his first speech to our country, and this speech moved me beyond what words on this blog can describe.  One of the things that impressed me  is that President Obama wrote the entire speech that he gave today himself.  That is right, HE wrote it.  Not some lackey on the sidelines making sure that the President does not sound or look foolish.  I think that we have had enough of that in the last 8 years.  When President Obama speaks, he inspires people.  He offers hope, realism, and a true vision for the future of our country.  When you hear President Obama speak, there is little doubt why people compare him to Martin Luther King Jr.  

Yet with all the history happening today, I cannot believe the amount of people who I work with, and I am not just talking about the crooks, that had NO IDEA what was happening today.  Now I can see how you might not realize what day it is and have forgotten about the inauguration.  What I don't understand is how on earth some of the educated people I work with can't seem to grasp why this day is so special.  One co-worker actually said "who cares about the inauguration, its just like every other one we have had".  WHAT!?!?!?!  Are you kidding me?!?!?!?!

I just don't get it.

At any rate, I am proud to have witnessed the history that was made today.  I would have loved to be at the National Mall to celebrate today with the estimated 3 million + people in Washington D.C. today.

Shit its cold out

As my mom would say "it is colder than a witches tit in a brass bra" outside.  And windy.  Which means all that nice new snow we got last night is blown up against the garage door, around my car, and across my front sidewalk.  

Thank god my FIL is coming out to blow everything out for me.  You see since I have injured my back and now move like an 80 year old man, pretty much any physical labor I do will re-injure the back.  I am light duty at work until the end of this week, but think I might ask the doc to extend it for another week.  The back is better but still not great.  We are going to night in little less than 2 weeks which will be a welcome break from the business of days.  I may not be on nights for long though as I applied for a new position within the jail which would allow me to work basically 8-430 with no weekends or holidays.  I would stay at the same pay, but would not be able to work over time.  Our fingers are crossed that I get this position.  

I think that is about it for now.  I have to get the snow blower ready for Daddy-O and color with Ellie.
