I’m back I guess…
Not only did I delete all my blog posts back in June, but I haven’t been training at all. Unhappiness and loneliness is a bitch. I’ve kept up at the gym, but haven’t set foot in my Muay Thai/BJJ school. I’m not sure if or when I will start back at BJJ. I should be back to Muay Thai in a couple of weeks after school starts back up. With the kids back at a regular schedule, it will be much easier. As far as BJJ goes, I don’t know if I can make myself get back at it. I just hate the fact that I suck so hard. It seems like no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t improve.
I have been working a lot of overtime this summer. I had set a goal to get all my debt (minus mortgage and car payment) paid off by the end of August. It looks like I have succeeded. My final supplemental cheques won’t come until a couple of weeks of September, but the hours have been earned. I really only had 1 week off this summer. My wife and I arranged our schedules so that we were able to avoid paying for any daycare. That’s a big expense we avoided. It meant that we really didn’t get much time together as a family, but it will be worth it in the end I think.
Some fun news. Last week I finalized the booking of a trip to Whistler in December. There will be 10 of us going. I only know a couple of the guys, but I am still really looking forward to the trip. It’s been far too long since I skied at a real mountain. I even bought a new pair of skis in anticipation. LOL. I know it’s only August, but it was a heck of a deal that I couldn’t pass up.
