I tend to be way too negative. I can always find some crap to complain about and I don’t like that about myself. I really think that my mind is tuned to the wrong frequency. When I’m out and about, I notice the guy who doesn’t put his cart away. I see the mother who isn’t paying attention while her kids run wild. I complain about bad drivers. I even complain about stuff that is wrong in my own life.
On Monday (American holiday of Labor Day), I spent the day breaking up the concrete retaining wall in preparation for yet another home improvement project. It was hotter than hell and the work was miserable. I’m a skinny guy and swinging a sledgehammer is not my forte. I bitched, bitched, bitched.
However, life is actually pretty good. I have a nice job where I can work from home, freeing up tons of time. I have a sane wife and two good and healthy children. Our home is a wreck at the moment due to home improvements, but we have a home. Better yet, it’s in a neighborhood that we really like. So, it’s time to stop complaining and ranting, at least for a moment.
Over the holiday weekend, we went to visit my wife’s aunt and uncle. I helped the aunt configure her new blog. Our children had the best time playing with their great uncle and riding around in his little MGA. We shared good beer and good conversation. On the way back, we drove through Rocky Mountain National Park and the weather was perfect. What more could one want out of life?
So, in lieu of my whining, please enjoy these pictures.
