r u ready 4 sum football...

well it is here again   tis the season for football my favorite sport   i'm watchin' my Chicago Bears play the Miami Dolphins   i'm a little impressed with my Bears and hope last years mistakes have been corrected for the new season   i'm not totally ready for football, but it's a nice welcome back...today i was suppose to work although it was my scheduled day off    i couldn't bring myself to go in, hence realizing it's time to come off the overtime list for a little while   i work myself to tears sometimes and today was one of them   maybe this time i can adjust to a 40hr work week and live from them   that would be nice   all things considered, i always believe anything is possible   think i will set my sites on this especially while my nephew is here   he's making a small contribution and this way hopefully his presence will keep my calm in the storm   ok there isn't necessarily a storm, but the transition will be easier    yep, i'm going to step into that direction.....in the meantime, i took kyle to Tradestar Construction Svcs (temp hire) and he got a job...he quit American Eagle...we also went to the Job Corp for him to check that out   he seems very interested in doing that   it'll be good for him to get some job skills and hopefully learn how to put up with bs from people at work   i've instructed him on how to handle it and that at every job there are lazy workers    if he's as sensitive to criticism as i was at his age, he has some work to do on turning a deaf ear    but i'll keep encouraging and instructing him on how to deal with it    i know he can do it   i'll think he'll also be happier doing construction than retail   he'll find his niche...funny how now i'm a parent all of sudden, but it's not too bad   i know i can only do so much and the rest he must learn on his own   plus i'm not  a dictator of his life   just provide the best wisdom i can for him and allow him to continue to grow & learn thru his choices and experiences   i'll be there to support him anyway i can and he knows i'll give him a swift kick in the butt if i need to, lol    overall the 2 of us are doing quite well   we enjoy each other's company a lot and have a lot of fun too   so for now, his new job and a brighter future    he'll get on his feet in due time.....now for Jasmine,  she's doin well   she couldn't hang in the heat today so we didn't go for a hike   she sleeps with her dad, kyle which i'm happy about   she still hangs at my feet often   we'll be taking pics of her this week and i'll post them asap....Life is good...still
