In October my roomie Wolfgang lost his job and I had to take a second job all because of MONEY! *hmpf*
Since January I have a paper round, that means I have to go up at 3 in the morning. This isn't as bad as it seems but time is very very rare to be here or walking around in LJ land and I miss it awfully.
To be on the road this early is wonderful (even now with tons of snow and feeling like the Yeti), taking a walk for about 2 hours (on Saturday I was on the way for about 3 hours - because of a massive snow storm) - coming home at 5 a.m or 6 a.m. and then I have to get myself ready for real work (from 7 to 5).
Wolfgang has the same job and slowly we don't need lists to get people the newspaper in time (they have to be delivered until 6 in the morning) :-))
But hey, I'm feeling well and healthy. You don't need a diet when you're doing this kind of job. And you don't need sports when you're walking that much, shoveling snow afterward and going to work later :-)
Catching up with my friends is hopeless because at the weekend housework and laundry (I can't tell you how much I DON'T LIKE THIS KIND OF WORK) are waiting. And yet, there's some time for just myself - for dreaming, thinking, listening to a little music (sleeping would be wasted time. As you may know I'm a night owl and I don't need much sleep - never did!)
So I want to apologize for not being around much, for not commenting and missing lots of birthdays. What I miss the most? Talking to you. Leaving few words to your posts. But things will get better in spring! Then I can take my bike and I'll be much faster than I'm now.
Take care, my friends. Be good, be happy and be sure I'm thinking of you.
Love and biiiiiiggest hugs,
