The first few days of vacation have been great. Monday we had a day date to a local casino for some lunch. On the way out we saw a band playing the we stopped to watch, and they were pretty fun.

Yesterday we got everything I wanted to get done on our son's tree fort. And we read after he went to bed. And we've made love the past couple of nights, so things are pretty good to say the least.

Good job man!  And thanks for the book recommendation.
Im also impressed that you got done what you wanted to get done with the tree fort.  You are either as faster worker than me,  or I set my expectations of a days work too high as I seldom get done what I try to do in a days work.  Have a good weekend!

Ha. Thanks man. Don't worry. We made up for our achievement yesterday by not getting much done at all, and the same today.

Not too much going on. Still working on the tree fort for our son, but I'm back at work now so my time for it is slim. At work I'm back in training to qualify on a different plant, so another two months of cramming and taking tests coming my way! FML.

You take so many tests in your job. It's almost like your employer wants you to be a career student. I can't decided weather that is awesome or terrible, LOL. Good luck with it!

I know, right?! I'm sick of this crap. After this school is done though, there aren't any schools they can send me to for a while. Thank God

Not too much going on round here. I've been having these terrible esophageal spasms lately where I wake up in the middle of the night and it feels like I'm having a heart attack. Just horrendous chest pain that takes hours to die down. Happened a few nights ago, and again last night at 2:30am. After trying to get back to sleep, once 4:45 came around I just saw screw it I'll go to work. So I went in to study. Pain finally started to go away just before 6. That's the longest spasm episode I've had yet. So I only got 2.4hrs of sleep last night. I'm ready to pass out.

Reboot stuff is going fine. I've been good with ogling at every opportunity but one so far this spring. Trying to keep myself centered on that, it's way too easy to lose your mind when it comes to that stuff.

Rebootrapp,

I know exactly what you are going through with the esophageal spasms...I went through a period of life when I got them not infrequently, and the pain was pretty bad.

I did some research and found a few suggestions that I tried. I found that sipping a lukewarm glass of water very slowly, sip-pause-sip-pause. That seemed to help relax my esophagus, but drinking it too quickly gave me additional discomfort as the water was unable to drop into my stomach due to the spasm.

My spasms turned out to be a reaction to reflux, and I have cured that with a daily dose of probiotics to aid digestion.

Don't know if this will help you or not, but it helped me...good luck!

Hey balanced, good to hear from you. Thanks for the tips. Thankfully i haven't had another one since last update. I've started taking my Prilosec right after dinner and just having water from that point until bed. Seems to be working for me so far.

Reboot things are still going well, thankfully including ogling. Keeping vigilant. We watched a movie the other night where a woman in the back of a limo flashed her boobs to the driver, at least I think she did, I managed to look away in time since it was obvious what was coming next.

Yesterday was a frustrating day for my wife due to a doctor treating her like an imbecile, so we talked about that a good deal yesterday. Though the circumstance not ideal, it was nice to talk to her for a while. I'm hoping we can do more of that.

Glad to hear the spasms have not returned recently. I did Prilosec for a while, but wanted  to get off the drugs. Also, generally people have a problem with not enough acid, rather than too much,  but doctors prescribe Prilosec like candy and they end up further lowering the acid. That's why I ended up with a probiotic each morning and it has done the trick.

Glad to hear the ogling battle is going well...that bad behavior, like all the rest, will eventually fade away if you are firm and consistent by turning away after the one-second "noticing" look.

I wish you continued success!

I don't think lack of acid is my problem, I drink too much soda for that! That's the next addition I've got to kick. Lol.

We just went out on a lunch date, which was awesome. Well, it was fun, but her good wasn't good. We had a great appetizer though, so I didn't get too upset. Nor did she.

Not too much really going on at the moment.

We decidedly we're getting an above ground poil, just a little one. So we've been researching and planning that for the last few days. It's pretty much been all we've done. We had dinner with some friends last night, but other than that its been all pool and the landscaping we're gonna do around it.

Still just working on pool stuff. We didn't think we'd need to meet all the code requirements for a little above ground pool with water 2 feet deep. But we do. So we upgraded the pool to something with water almost 4 feet deep. If I'm gonna have to build a fence and all that crap, it's gonna be for something bigger.

Anyway, everything else is fine. We've been spending a lot of time working together on this project which was been really nice. We've only zoned out to tv once in the last week or so, which makes me really happy.

I've got a test at work in a couple hours, so I've been coming back to work to study the last couple nights. That might be part of the reason why we haven't watched as much tv... I've just not been there. But I've been leaving work a little before lunch to go home and work on pool stuff during the daylight, and I come back to study after dinner. The other day when I got home, we may have had a little detour to the bedroom before I started on the yard...

And my brother graduates high school today, so the next few days will be crazy with family stuff going on.

Thanks Aquarius. Three more to go!

The weekend was fun, got to spend a lot of time with my brothers and sister, then Father's Day was a good relaxing day.

Things between my wife and I are good. We're still spending most of our time on pool crap. Hopefully we submit our permit application today or tomorrow and can start building this weekend. That would be super nice.

Our son is out of school for the summer, so we'll see how that impacts us as it will definitely change my wife's daily routine!

Had a good weekend. Actually made some good progress on the tree fort for little man. Took the fam to a baseball game on Friday, had a bunch of fun there.

The only bummer was that I had to come to work and study both mornings, but once I left this place it was a blast. And my wife made some unbelievable tacos last night!
