So I may not have said it lately

…but life is not to friggin’ bad right now. No major complaints. Like my job, good car, nice house, great kids, fulfilling extra-curricular activity…all I really need to do is pay off everything. Work stress comes and goes, and there are one or two minor things that could be better, but overall:

I’m pretty darn content and mostly happy right now.

So I’m waiting for the shit to hit the fan. No fucking way can things be this good and I not have a crisis just waiting for me. Somewhere, somehow, something is waiting to eat my face (figuratively, I hope).

No, I’m not paranoid, I just learned from life’s lessons. Lesson number one from my past is “enjoy the good times but be ready for the bad times.” So I’m going to enjoy it, but sleep with one eye open.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Eh, life is good here and I expect it to stay good. Sure, shit sometimes hits the fan but it’s nothing I can’t handle. I bet you’re the same way. So sleep well. You’re on top of things and enjoying life almost to the fullest. Wondering when the bad is going to hit is silly! :P So stop it!!!

    But old habbits die hard, and I can almost feel something stirring in the wind.

    Maybe it’s just old age. *smirk*

    i saw the double b, and read “old hobbits die hard” and thought, “no they don’t, they just sail off into the lands across the sea with the elves…”

    True. I used to think anything something good would happen that my family would find some way to destroy it. Sure enough, they did… until I realized that I was unconsciously setting myself up to let them have the power to take whatever good was away from me. I think that’s the same for bad things that come into our life. Sometimes they just happen and there is nothing you can do about it. Other times you worry just enough to kind of go looking for the bad just to prove yourself right. So I just think it’s better to live life as if its good… not naively naturally but appreciating the good and ensuring you cover your bases so that if something unexpected does happen, you have the resources at hand to handle it. :)

    Nah, you’re right… definitely old age. *tease* ;)
