First update back in SOCAL...

Ok well the last time I wrote the weekly blog I was still in my place in Virginia and now as I sit and write this I am in San Diego, in my new (but smaller) place and just getting back into the normal groove. Well technically that starts tomorrow when I arrive at the new job. Since the last time I wrote I have driven to Florida from Virginia, got to spend a day with my family before being told my stuff would arrive sooner than expected. So I left Sunday morning, arrived in Florida that night (at 10pm) then left for San Diego Tuesday morning and arrived in San Diego Wednesday night. How's that for trucking fast?! LOL!

When I got here I met the person who I am leasing the town home from and my friend Jason who has been a God-send since I've been here. He's helped me out a lot with getting things organized. He help me upload my stuff from the movers (who, by the way, destroyed the fairing on my CBR! GRRR!) -- I mean he really went out of the way to help me out a lot. I went with him to the new office on Friday to get some paperwork completed, we did lunch and then I slept in my house in Del Mar. On Saturday I worked with the DirecTV and Time Warner guys to get my internet and TV working (yay!) and also worked with the contractors who are still, at the time of this writing, days if not weeks behind the 8 ball with getting this place into shape. I told them they will have to work Saturdays since I am not going to be here during the week.

On Saturday night I went back to my old Church (Horizon North County) where I met with one of my friends I haven't seen in a long time as well as the Pastor (Roger) who helped me and my family out a lot when I was in the hospital in 2010. I can't believe it's already been that long but I am grateful for the people in my life who have gone far and above what is necessary to help me along. I know that God has planned this all out for me so it's in my best interest to trust in the Lord and let Him work His miracles in my life -- and there have been a lot of them. It was good just to be back to my normal church, setting into the old routine that made me happy (prayer) and being surrounded by friends.

Look, I know leaving for VA was God's plan for me as well as coming back here. It was well known that I wasn't adjusting well to the cold and the lack of friends so I think God said "I need you to be back with your brethren and back into My word) which is what I am doing.

There are still a lot of things that need to be done with this house and it's going to take a long time before this place is livable. I still do miss the friends I made in VA and I DEFINITELY miss my own home but what can you do? My place is now rented and that part is taken care of. Eventually I will try to buy a place out here when/if I can find something that I like and makes sense.

Today (Sunday) I played golf with my good friend Jack as well as Jason and that was really fun to be with the old crew. Pretty soon I am going to set up a get-together with other friends I haven't seen in a long time, put my nose to the grindstone at work, get things back in order here and then finish up with my pilots license. Almost finished that before I left and that's something off my bucket list that needs to be done.

Well I think that is about it for now. I have to get my laundry done and get ready for my new job tomorrow. I am very thankful for the great people I met and worked with in VA and I know we'll do the same here in San Diego. I am definitely enjoying the warm weather, cool breezes and the relaxing atmosphere that comes with living in SOCAL.

Hope you had a great and blessed week and talk to you later!
