Update from Somewhere South of Chicago

Just a quick life update since I have not been posting with any regularity lately.

I have been feeling pretty good the past week after having some weeks where I felt like total crap. I am sure that a decent amount of it was due to mourning the loss of my mother and some of the associated difficulties surrounding that. The next part will be challenging as I deal with the aftermath of the passing. I hope to consult with a specialist attorney this next week to make some progress in terms of my mother's estate. I don't want to go into any detail here, but some things in my future are likely to be a real pain in the butt.

A hopeful thing family-wise is that my wife has a job interview tomorrow. We have great hopes that she will be offered the position. The job would likely not be as ideal (except for the supervisor) as the last one, but she would possibly receive a 20-25% bump in pay, which certainly would make me happy!

I have this coming week off before work hits its extremely busy time and my life becomes challenging. thundering36 and I will be going to two White Sox-Cubs games this week, one at The Cell and one at Wrigley Field. The trip might also include an overnight stay at Harrah's Joliet.

My 2016 poker success seems to continue to go up and down. My last session I played some $1/2 Pot Limit Omaha. It was amazing how much more I felt the need to concentrate on the play. However, I learned a lot and will be better equipped to play it the next time. I dumped a little in Omaha and a little in $1/2 NL Hold 'em. I was embarrassed to need some slot luck to mitigate my losses.

My next Las Vegas trip is set for August 26-31. I plan to take my wife with this trip (a rare occurrence), but if she gets the teaching job she is interviewing for, I will have to go solo (unless thundering36 begs to go along)!

In the meantime, I will continue to keep up on social media sites and get ready for the work dog days of August.
