Mark Iowa as another state I traveled to. Thanks to a work-related assignment, I was given this opportunity to drive a crew and myself to different towns and cities there. In between were rural roads that went uphill and downhill because the land itself didn't appear all too flat. It's too bad that corn wasn't seen since it's still too early in the season for them to grow. I also wanted to visit Mason City and Clear Lake checking out the crash site (which claimed the lives of then-rock superstars Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and J.P. Richardson known as The Big Bopper) and the last building they performed in during the winter dance tour from 1959. Next time, maybe...Overall, Iowa was great especially the nice people there.
It's an awful week for me despite the good weather. I have had 3 nosebleed incidents so far here at home. And I can only assume that one of my blood vessels had burst. I haven't pinched my nose until the latest one. It actually helped ease the bloodflow and stopped no later than a couple seconds. I also put petroleum jelly to seal it. Hopefully that's the end. The last time I had nosebleeds were almost 10 years ago.

It feels great to be back shooting hoops at the park's basketball court. I expected myself not to be as good but I wasn't all that great either. A few three-pointers sank in and I aimed to focus more within the three-point arc this time around. Despite my flaws (since it is just beginning), I'm grateful to be doing this activity and in good health for a soon-to-be a 39 year old.

What's up with Blogger lately having those annoying ads on the top and bottom of my blog page? I didn't expected that after not logging in to my Blogger account for so long. It makes it look terrible, tacky and ruins the color schemes. I might have to transition my blogosphere elsewhere soon especially with an upcoming project I'm still brainstorming on.

It seems that work's grueling January schedule has taken a toll on myself and (some) coworkers that I know. That meant not having any days off - until now. Today is relief for me and others who aren't on assignment. Shar just finished hers and is now rewarding herself with all the sleep/rest time she needs. The same with Dave (Mr. Barclay). But not for Rizz. She has to work tonight. She will get that much needed rest once its all over for her workday. We're staying in Peru, IL tonight as I booked a hotel. No long drive home until later mid-morning.

I almost fell deep asleep on the drive home from work. I veered towards the left lane and didn't know it until I regained my focus again. I have to remind myself to allow a few minutes of resting when needed. It's better to be awake.
