And now, a word from our feelings!

It’s been a pretty interesting couple of months.  It started with a very unexpected and last minute move out of the house I’ve been renting for the last 12 years.  It was something that we had been planning on doing within the next 6 months because we’re trying to buy a house.  But we were planning on doing it on our own terms, not to be pushed into it so suddenly.  We had to pack an entire house up, try to find somewhere to move that was pet friendly, and actually move in 30 days.  Thankfully, my brother came through with a place to live, and Shereens mom has been looking after our dogs since there’s already 5 cats here.  Now we’re just trying to get our mortgage situation re-situated because I went and quit Papa John’s not knowing that they have to have a two year period of employment somewhere to be considered for the loan.  So now we’re hoping that Shereen’s credit is good enough to be approved, albeit for probably a smaller amount.

Pardon the dust…

Wow.

So, i’ve been putting off making a blog post for awhile and next thing i know its been forever since I’ve made a post.

So whats new?  I bought a new(ish) car last month.  The purple beast was

2007 PT Cruiser

just getting to dilapidated to drive anymore.  So i traded it in and upgraded to a 2007 Chrysler PT Cruiser.  Its not terribly fancy or nothing.  But the CD player, and AUX input both work so I can play my cd’s and my MP3’s while i drive and actually feel safe on the road for once.   It took awhile to get used to not driving a stick shift. I kept on trying to grab the transmission stick and trying to shift.   Even still every once in awhile i’ll grab for it and try to shift gears lol.  I took a trip to Midland, MI a couple fridays ago.  It handled so nicely for the drive. 

What else is new.  I finally finished my trek (SWIDT! HAHAH) through Star Trek The Next Generation.  I watched all 7 seasons now.  So now that I concluded TNG, i’ve gotten through Star Trek Enterprise, Star Trek Voyager, and Star Trek Deep Space Nine.  I still think that TNG was probably my most favorite series.  As I’m typing this now I’m also watching “Chuck“.  I had already seem most of the series, but never got around to finishing it.  So, since apparently “Smallville” isn’t available to stream on Netflix as that was going to be the next series I watched.  So.  Help me out! What should I watch next?  Theirs only a few more episodes of Chuck, so that will go by quickly.

Christmas was a bit interesting this year.  The plan was to go to my parents this year.  That, however, didn’t happen.  Dad ended up getting sick with a stomach issue that kept him in the hospital for several days.  Thankfully he’s ok now.  We were all able to get together for our annual Christmas gathering at St Anns.  It was pleasant as always getting to see most of the family.  Of course, there were plenty of rounds of Spoons to be had.  This year I took several videos of them and posted them on Vine.  You can view Round One Here, and you can view Round Two Here on my Vine.

Anyways, its time for me to go to bed.  I’m really gonna try to make more posts, as sometimes posting this stuff really helps me relax emotionally.

TTFN

About that….

So, i’ve been in a pretty wretched mood all day.  Just been one of those days, know what i mean?  So i guess i will blog about last week, and other stuff i guess.

So I guess we’ll start with all the blog drama that I got included on.  Meh.  Anybody who knows me, knows that i care little for engaging in it.  So  moving on.

Happy Birthday Mikayla.

Mikayla baby

On April 23, 2001 one of the most amazing, emotional, and important events in my life occurred,  I was about to have a baby.  I was scared.  I was worried.  I was nervous.  As I stood in the operating room I wondered if I would be able to handle the responsibilities that were headed my way.  I had serious questions.  I wondered if I would be able to make the right decisions.  I wondered if I was qualified to help mold and shape somebody.  I had questions that I thought were major concerns then (but really are silly lol).  What if i dropped her.  What if i rolled over her.  What if she fell off the bed.  What if i pushed her too hard on the swing.  Then the doctor handed me a pair of surgical scissors, and I cut the cord and then subsequently held the most wonderful bundle of joy ever.  As I stared into her eyes, I stopped worrying.  The fears subsided for the moment.  The most beautiful baby girl stared at me wide eyed and with wonder.  It would be ok.

Hi. I’m a blog post.

So, today is monday… Weeeeeee.

Today was mostly meetings and paper pushing as normal.  I was going to do a show tonight, but time constraints weren’t in my favor.  So I’m working on my dads PC installing a new hard drive for him.  I’m also thinking of getting my server up and running since I’m getting all down and dirty with the hardware… Weeeee.
