Get out of my office….

….I really don’t have a title, so I did what I always do when I can’t think of one….use the first phrase I see…hahaha….I wish it was TGIF every dang on day.  Things have been slow fast-paced and hectic (like usual) for the last two weeks.  I thought that I had cleared my calendar so I would be able to dedicate my time back to the blog….someone forgot to pass the memo on to my professors….Man the for the life of me  I’ve never understood the purpose of midterms.  I mean if you are having a quiz after every chapter…to hell with some midterms.  Now you have to commit all this unnecessary time reading a ton of information that not even half of it will be on the exam.  It’s not like I am taking 100 level classes or something.  I don’t know….but taking online classes this quarter is so convenient and inconvenient at the same time.  The amount of reading that you have to do is crazy.  I only have time to eat, sleep, sh*t and read (sorry)….but man….anytime you have to take a textbook with you to make it do what it do, then that is really a problem (I know TMI).  Okay…lemme get off of that….how have ya’ll been doing?

I’ve actually been hit up with a few questions from the soon to come Askadew segment.  I’m really feeling that.  I get the chance to make your life just as dysfunctional as mine (hahahha).  Naw seriously though, how have you been.  A few people have sent me personal emails to the Askadew addy.  I appreciate all the emails that I have received and the positive feedback…..well there was one email that was a little less than positive and I will share some excerpts from it in days to come.  For those of you that might have missed, the email is

It is so much that I have to tell you….maybe I’ll save that for later if I can get back on and blog.  As far as this weekend…David have absolutely nothing to do EXCEPT for homework….ugh…hahahaha.  Ooh, I supposed to going to shoot some pool with a few of my employees….I’ll let you know the results….no quote today….but to be blessed and remember drama is an allergy….stay away from it!

That’s the way the cookie crumbles…..

….I was supposed to be reporting on the number of times I heard the presidential candidates said “fundamental difference”…..well unfortunately people I fell asleep during the beginning of the debate.  So my tally for the event was a meager two times….

Okay, in keeping with the theme of Rewind Wednesday….well I’m deviating slightly from the format.  I decided to go through my email from exactly a year ago to the day and this is a discussion my email group had…

Why do you think men leave there wives for younger women? I would love some feedback about this.

I am sick and tired of this phrase…..

….and I know that I will here it all night….“the fundamental difference”.  Every time one of the presidential or vice presidential candidates says that it just really irks me.  I really don’t know why, but it just does!  Do you have words or phrases that really get on your nerves? Well this is one of mine.  I’m going to count how many times I hear it tonight while watching the debate and then I will turn to CNN or MSNBC and see how many times they say it on there and I will post about it tomorrow.  I have reserved judgment on who I am voting for in this election (even though I know and have known for quite sometime) and watching the VP debate just really re-inforced my position.  I really stay out of discussing politics with folks outside of my inner-circle.  I can talk crazy to those cats and they can chop it up to David just being David.

Today I want to talk about pet peeves.  Actually brain had a great blog on this .  I don’t know what it is, but I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY hate to repeat myself.  If I tell you something once, then if you didn’t catch it….tough t#*tie (maybe I shouldn’t have said that).  I also cat stand ignorance of any type.  Stupid is stupid, just like dumb is dumb.  Okay, this was sparked by #1 and #2’s exploits over the past few weeks.  Sometimes these cats just don’t listen.  I repeat myself CONSTANTLY.  I tell them all the time, “boy if your granma and granpa was your parents back in the day….ya’ll have it weezy (that is a combination way and easy…).”  It got so bad, I made #1 write me a report this weekend on the difference between an option and an order.  That is crazy…..ooh another one….please iron your clothes…INCLUDING JEANS.  Irons were invented to be utilized….stop using the dryer trick.

Am I crazy for these????  Tell me you pet peeves….

Attention Please….Earth to Dew….

….things look a little different now…doesn’t it?  Yeah, I know…you probably thought you were on the wrong site.  Naw, you are in the right place…..same show, different channel.  I didn’t fall off the face of the earth but things haven’t been the most (hmmm lemme find the word)…..stable I guess you would say.  I’m not talking about unstable like crazy, cookoo, off the rocker unstable….but just slightly more elevated than my usual level of dysfunction.  Most of the dysfunction has been out of my control…from the loss of power, to excess homework and work demands have been the core of everything.  Sprinkle in the exploits of #1 and #2 and voila…that equation (yuk algebra again) equals a lethal combination of no blogging.

I really am not sure where to start.  I guess with why I decided to make a visual change to the blog.  Well my blog isn’t the only thing I have changed lately, but I will start with the blog.  It came down to just really wanting a change of pace.  I have a quote that I live by…”You can’t have a better tomorrow if you are thinking about yesterday all the time.”  Just being able to shift gears was what I needed.  I think that not dealing with certain issues of the mind and emotions have been a severe hindrance with me lately.  I decided to change my name on the blog to my government name of David.  I even decided to change my profile picture (I’m not sure if it took hold).  I was really hesitant on this one because I included my children (and there are some sick folks out there), but so many people want to know what they look like since I talk about time often.  They are the two most important people in my life.  I have taken some tremendous steps this week.  In my psychology class I was forced to deal with a module that smacked me head on.  We learned about the function of the brain and all that encompasses the nervous system.  This was hard for me like I said….some of you already know that my wife dealt with a number of neurological issues before she passed, so this was like reviving a dead horse.  But you know what….it helped me.  For the entire range of emotions I went through, I was forced to channel all those hurtful emotions into this module.  I actually talked to my professor about this issue and she told me that she went through something very similar.  When she was finishing up her phD, she was forced to deal with some similar issues.  I won’t divulge those, because I didn’t ask her permission to share.  It was a testimony that touched me tremendously.  I actually have changed other things around me like my appearance of my home and thinking about a personal change as well (stay tuned for that one).

On the personal front, I have really been blocking some things out….mainly people.  For the last few weeks I just really hadn’t wanted to be bothered.  I don’t do it intentionally, but my mindset was off.  Instead of fighting this greiving thing, I started to embrace it for the first time.  It has been six months since Ronya passed away and I just function sometimes….no real rhyme or reason….just gliding on by.  I know what exactly to say and who to say it to.  If I would slip, then folks would know that something is really wrong, so over the course of the past two or three weeks, I have intentionally been withdrawn.  That way folks can’t pick, probe or pry information from me.

Yesterday was the first day I have been to church in quite sometime.  I just have been fighting something internally.  I decided to deal with it yesterday…initially I didn’t think I did well, because I was so emotionally drained, but as I sit back and look at the situation objectively now, church was just what I needed.

Well, I have to be productive now….I’m the only management at our facility for the next few weeks….Talk tomorrow….and ooh yeah…I miss you!

Keep on going, and the chances are that you will stumble on something, perhaps when you are least expecting it. I never heard of anyone ever stumbling on something sitting down. – Charles Kettering
