In this weeks edition of Monday Mania:Total System Collapse In Real Time, What You Should Consider When Fire Is A Threat?, How To Survive When A Nuke Is Dropped, Learning From The Pioneers, What Do You Do With Dead Bodies?, and X More!
First off, I apologize for missing the last installment of Monday Mania. I traveled to be with my best friend from high school for his wedding which resulted in a lot more work offline and virtually none in the blogosphere. Even though I did not get anything posted, I did save what I would have shared and added it to this week’s edition. It was a good time though and more than anything, it was great to visit with an old friend and his family for a few days.
Last week I went to work for a couple of days after being off for two weeks following an arthroscopy of my right shoulder. I am healing well but it looks like a second surgery on the same shoulder is inevitable in the future.
To make things even more complicated, my wife’s grandfather passed away so she left to attend the services. This left me a single father. While I love my boys and will do anything for them, sometimes it is hard enough to take care of myself, let alone three boys that are fighting with each other for only reasons known to God. We made it though! My wife got back Friday and to keep things rolling, I leave today for the week for business.
That’s really everything. I hope that you all have had great weeks!
