I'm a driving fool!


It's 3:00 am on Tuesday as I type this post.

I was tossing and turning while trying to sleep. It's hot and muggy and I'm pretty anxious today. Today the driving on my new job starts. I'm pretty sure I know the route. Right now I have 7 people that I have to pick up in the morning between 07:30 and 09:00 am. The route is aprox 24 miles long winding from Baldwinsville, Ny around through Camilus and then back into the City of Syracuse, Ny ending on James Street at about 09:00 am. Then I'm off until about 02:15 pm when I have to  pick them up and reverse order back to their homes where I picked them up. The route finishes at about 04:00 pm. I'll get a picture of the van I'm driving up at another time. I just wanted to check in with you all.

The closing on the house is Thursday at 10:00 am.

Barring any last minute changes, on Friday G&I homes will start the slab work and within a week or so after the slab is installed they should start placing the house. It should be pretty quick after that that we should be able to start moving in. We hope to be in a postion to take pictures of the site work and them pouring the slab. Hope springs eternal.

Tomorrow is my first visit with the psych dr.

I'm really looking forward to this as I can't take much more of this up and down stuff. This latest episode of the Bipolar has been cycling pretty fast up and down, up and down since January and I'm running out of umph.(Hey Preciousrock is umph a word?) As many of you have read I haven't felt like posting and I feel so disjointed with this post but I just wanted to get some word out there to you. Thanks to my loyal readers for your encouraging words. They mean a lot to me and I hope to be back in the Saddle Posting at least every other day or so. Once I get  used to the routine of working again.

Dear Mr. Krusen,
Preciousrock say "umph" is a fine word. I'm going to go look it up in the dictionary to make sure she is correct, lol Yes, dictionary.com say umph is word also. So glad to hear that the new house may be getting closer to reality. I'm sure your moods will be less up and down once you get this settled!

I hope your visit to the doctor will be very helpful. It is always a pleasure making sure you are full of energy and happy. When you start back working, the situation and problems may go away or at least not be on your mind. I was up at 3 am myself. I stayed up through the entire night LOL. Congrats on the new job, Mark!! :)

I hope the driving went well today..

I don't know what it is like to be bipolar but I do know what it is like to be down and up, a little... and it sucks without being bipolar.... so just saying that I hope it is over soon.

Keep up the posts - even if you don't feel like it, there are people out here on the web that read and care what you're going through!

Best of luck on the drive and the doctor's visit.
