Brotherly Love

Taking things as they come. Sometimes not knowing whether I'm coming or going can be a problem, but for my life right now it's about par.

Can't say too much about work other than it's becoming more like work everyday. You know how you can get into a groove, and before you know it, you're thinking I need a damn vacation. That's me, in month 2 of my job.

Spent the previous weekends mixing my free time between Red Sox/Yankee games, and the NFL draft. The weather is quickly changing here. I think for the worst as today temps hit 90. The summer has approached us here in Austin, and looks like it could be here to stay until November. I am going to relish in the moments of what little good weather we can get in the next few weeks by taking the dog to the park or kayakiing.

My brother came into town this past weekend, and I was stoked to see him. Being separated from family has been the hardest thing to do in my life. I feel like I've grown closer to my brothers as I have gotten older. They are more than brothers and more like my best friends. So it was nice having him around for a couple of days to shoot the breeze about life, movies, funny stories, and most important sports. There are times when it seems there are more important things to talk about like the war or New Orleans inability to capitalize on a post-Katrina situation that could have rebirthed a city we love, but it's also important to talk about the nuances of Lou Pinella's lineup or the Saints upcoming football schedule.

So, when my brother had to leave and go back home it was with great sorrow I said good-bye. In a few weeks my younger brother will be out, which will ease the pain for a short while until he leaves. Right now this is how I capture bits of my life. In small pieces where I can relax and have fun with my brothers while life slowly passes by. The wheels are always turning in my life and I'm just trying to stay the course. Things are coming and going just like the Old Miss, the Old Man. Deep River, my home is over Jordan. Sorry, had a Vacation flashback. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I'm letting things happen for the time being. Just like my brothers passing through, I'm just passing the time right now until I figure things out.
