Well, its been a couple of weeks and all I can say is taking the Wall Street job was the best possible move for me. My stress level has gone from through the roof to on the floor. I'm sleeping better and longer. I'm totally removed from the dock enviroment. I come in, get my truck, drive to the WSJ plant, load my truck, drive to the first warehouse, drop off some carts, then drive to our warehouse in Menlo Park and hand count the papers to the carriers. Then I take lunch, write on the blog and go home. Stress? What stress? Finally, my senority has come in handy. As long as we remain in partnership with the Journal, I'll keep this job.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
