I've always been a positive happy dude. It's just who I am.

But this week I finally broke; and it has given me a deeper understanding of those I know who deal with clinical depression (like my wife). I couldn't really DO anything. I wasn't sobbing in a corner, or a wreck, I was just ... incapable of anything.

So I played video games for about two days straight.

Today we are going away to a friend's vacation home. They are out of the country and can't get to it, and asked us to go check on it. Fortunately, it is also my wife's birthday. So we are getting away for a bit, together.

It's going to be lovely.

And just the break I need right now. (There's no internet there, too. That'll help me out immensely.)

Oh. And I got onto TikTok. And I love it. Without reservation. A total blast!
