    so crazy how incredible this wave we all ride can be
    found myself in some real physical pain at the end of this week for various reasons
    wanted to get a massage from this fantastic masseuse i'm dating but decided i needed to erect a little kids house at the school to close out the week
    had to navigate the mom situation and that added a different level of stress to the physical pain so i was in great shape
    upon arrival i'm greeted by the usual suspects (mostly the boys) following me in as i was hauling in the pieces of the house into the yard
    once i had everything in i found myself surrounded by about 40 kids all riveted by the new addition and it seemed like a hundred voices were peppering me
    i said something like " this is a lot of pressure i'm not sure i can do it"
    and i hear one little voice say "yes you can!" and then another "you can do it!"
    at that point it became a chant of "you can do it" and i am standing there w a circle of kids jumping and cheering and can see the teacher on the perimeter just smiling and taking it in
    after finishing the assembly and letting the kids go crazy on it i think every one of them came up to me and thanked me for what i was doing to their school and telling me what day their birthdays were on and on
    teachers are giving me food as i'm leaving and getting back in the truck i realized that at least half of my physical pain was gone and my mood was great
    went home got a shower and went to see the girl for 2 hours of hard core thai massage and i was floating
    not sure how my life turned out this way but i know i have to be the luckiest man on the face of the earth

    Don't know how weather is by y'all, but in NJ, there is no sunshine anymore. Perpetually cloudy and cold all the time now...Always. Like northern Finland.
    But if you can see the stars tonight, locate the Big Dipper, and you should be able to spot a comet near the handle.
    It should look like the Dodger " flying ball" logo a bit.
    Cool.
    A good omen.
    I think.
    Yeehah.

    Clear weather tonight, but the city lights blow out everything except the major stars and planets. I don't have a telescope, but gave the sky a look just in case.
