Well here we are...5 hours Northeast of Atlanta in beautiful Winston-Salem, North Carolina. One thing you can say about living in Atlanta is that unless you move to NYC or L.A. anywhere you go from there, the traffic will always appear laughable. But anyhoo the move appears to have been successful, my wife's decision to switch jobs seems to have been one of her better decisions as she hasn't been this alive and happy in quite a while. Getting paid more for doing the same job with barely any sort of responsibility and bosses who actually leave you alone to your vices works wonders for morale.
Getting here hasn't been so hot though. Two 5-hour, round trips in a span of two days totally sucked, as did loading up a U-Haul with stuff until 11:30 at night, only to have the truck's battery die, resulting in you not getting on the road until 3:00 in the morning as you waited on roadside assistance to come (fun fact: AAA won't bail you out if you're in a rental vehicle). On top of that, I think I severely sprained my foot, and a few other not-so-fun injuries to my body from moving things, and I won't even get started on Sears and their inability to order applicances. But all in all we are moved in, the internet is on, the boy is asleep and we are home, where we want to be back in the Tarheel State where friends and family all live within an hour of us instead of 7.
So now what? Well, to be honest, I don't know. I'm really burned out at the moment. Holidays, moving, losing a job/getting a new job, packing, family death and winter all at the same time really wears a person down. And then you throw in the fact that my wife bought me an Xbox One for Christmas and Halo and Mad Max may have diverted my free time away, so I don't know when I'll knock something new out, I have a lot of "real world" projects that pay that I need to take care of, but of all things more than likely I'll probably get back to editing Chapter 3 and get that out. That's my primary goal this year: to get that damn story finished, lol.
Anyways, I just wanted to check in. Thanks to those who checked in on me, it's appreciated and hopefully I'll be back to providing entertainment soon.
