Destined for Bigger Things

Weighed in this morning at 166 pounds, no change from yesterday.

Yesterday I started out on the beef jerky diet, but ended up breaking it. That evening I went out for a beer just because I had been in the house all day long, and wanted to get out. I ended up at a local bar, and had a small order of cheese fries to go with it. Then later on, I got a call from a friend who offered me some vegetables from his garden, so I went over there and had more beer and some of his homegrown grapes.

I also did some exercises, with a 2-mile jog in the morning, and 1 set of push-ups, but that was it.

Working inside my home doing website work all day long, really makes me want to get out and do something. Most of my friends have kids, or grandkids, and always have things to do. Not having that kind of family frees me up, but only makes me yearn to do something. My mind is always thinking of jumping on my motorcycle and riding off for a long time, picking a road, and just going and seeing what's out there.

I feel as if this website work is just a stepping stone and that I've already run my course. I can feel this burning inside telling me to get going.

Sometimes I think about this stuff, and wonder if what I'm feeling inside is a calling. Maybe there's a reason why my wife and I never had kids. It's not like we haven't tried, and we exhausted all options, including adoption. But life kept throwing curve balls at us to keep us from hitting that homer. Maybe we weren't supposed to have kids. Maybe there's something else in store for me.
