What's making me happy
It has been 604,800 seconds since we last talked.
I hope you are well.
So what is making me happy?
Well, spring break is next week.
I am looking forward to heading to Mexico, drinking way too much, working on my tan and trying to impress some young ladies.
This is my adulting blog.
But that was the mindset about 25 years ago.
Damn I am getting old.
Me and a few of my fraternity brothers would leave the never ending winter of Moscow, Idaho to head south to the more weather-friendly confines of Mexico.
One year we drove.
And it is a drive.
But we had lots of fun.
Even more fun when we weren't driving.
48 hours is a long time to be in a car.
Probably why we decided to fly the next year.
Now as a happily-married father of two, I am looking forward to doing much of nothing over the break.
We have a few plans but nothing too crazy as the last few weeks have been a little hectic with the kids going back to school in-person full-time and my work being super busy for me.
But I might work on my tan and try to impress that young lady I call my wife.
What's not making me happy
I already knew the world was full of stupid people but the amount of people dead from the neck up seems to accelerating or my tolerance is decreasing.
So many precious, empty-headed little shit nuggets and so little time.
Here are two of my recent favorites: the man who blamed his racism on diabetes and the Idaho politicians who decided we couldn't have the Powerball anymore because Australia might use the money for anti-gun campaigns.
That young lady I mentioned earlier is getting older this week.
Happy birthday to the lovely, talented, amazing, awesome and wonderful Mrs. Shife.
She really does complete me and I would be lost without her.
You wonderful folks that have been reading this blog long enough to know that isn't hyperbole.
I would be an absolute cockwomble without my wife.
- Since it is still fresh on our minds, can we please make this the last time we have to change our clocks. There's hope on the horizon but we are talking about politicians who can't seem to agree on anything these days so it will probably get voted down because it's not patriotic enough or it's too patriotic or it's too conservative or it's too socialist.
- I need to find another hobby besides playing with the filters on my webcam.

I will try and do better.
I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
