Two trips to northern California in two weeks, sharing close quarters with my family, have left me very appreciative of my own space.
I've had so much fun, though. And I'm learning more every time I go. The job i'm learning, I can do nearly on my own. I just need practice.
I'm finding that when I'm at the races, the stuff that usually bothers me just ... doesn't. It doesn't matter that everything is meaningless ... I've got something that captivates me.
But now I'm home again, and it's back to the same for a few weeks until the next one.
