Okay, so I'm back to try this again. Over the last few months, I just haven't had the energy, or the time mostly, to do this. I've been working nights, and sleeping days, and trying to adjust. I've also moved into a new place, and getting that painted and cleaned and fixed up is time-consuming. On top of that, my father is visiting, and I've been spending time with him, so there just aren't enough hours in the day.
My father is still here, but will be leaving right after New Years. I'll be able to have more of a regular schedule then, and with the crappy weather, should be able to get back into this, at least on a semi-regular basis.
It's been great having him here, and he's been to see Neeve every time I've gone. They get along great, and she'll be sad to see him go. She talks to him a lot, and will play with him whenever they get the chance. He gets things out of her it took me months to get, but he's a grandparent, and I'm just Daddy. And I don't mind.
Things are great with Neeve. She's turned six, and doing great in school. We're getting along better than ever, and there aren't any issues between us. There is one, but I'll cover that separately.
Her mother and I have seemed to form some sort of symbiotic relationship at last. In that we both have to deal with the other, and we've learned to do it without making things more difficult for Neeve. More on that one later. But no arguments or silly games for quite awhile.
I'm working as a Night Porter in a hotel. I don't like it, but it's more money for fewer hours than I was making before. And better working conditions. I want to move into days, but it isn't happening right now. The main thing is, it's work. Steady work.
Those are the main things right now. There isn't much happening, as usual. But things to fill you in on. I'll try to get all things caught up by the end of the year. I still don't have a lot of time, but it's getting better.
Be back soon.
