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.

RIP my friend.

Today I said goodbye.  I said goodbye to a friend who I’ve never been to the movies with.  A friend I’ve never gone to the park with.  Never went cruising around with.  We’d never gone to the bar together.  Never been to church together.  Never met in person.  Never had dinner together.  Never had any meal together.  But we’ve spent easily hundreds of hours “together”.  We’ve spent countless hours chatting it up.  Countless hours running people over in Grand Theft Auto V.  Countless hours shooting ships in Elite: Dangerous.  We’d spent countless hours in Skype.  Ken was a regular guest of the Podcast / Stream that I’m part of.  Many games we’d played together, many hours of deep chat about life, wives, kids, work, and everything else between.  I know him well enough to call him friend.  And that’s not a title I just typically throw around.
