Sooooo much work, so little time to update the blog.
It was my dad's birthday this weekend so I drove up to GA
to take him to dinner. For his birthday I bought him plane
tickets to go to Nashville where he is going to meet a bunch
of his friends for a music type convention. I am sure he will
have a great time!
has been keeping me busy. I have work to do tonight so I don't
even have much time to get the blog done (as I am doing now
lol!). I've had to get chores done and I am feeling a tad
under the weather too. My boss already said I can take some
time off soon so I just don't know what I will do with extra
and I got my new tags for my CBR so at some point I will be
able to ride the bike again. OK, fireworks are going off as
I write this (It is Mouse territory here remember). I hope
you had a fantastic day and hopefully by next week I will
have more time. If I am not on call.

Been working my tail off all this week. By my count
about 60 hours in total. Not as much as I had to deal with
when I was working with that "other" company, but
still a lot of hours. In fact, I worked 18 hours alone yesterday
(Saturday). It's a really good thing that I love what I do.
In fact, I worked a couple hours today as well. On Saturday
I worked from 7am to 2am, then a couple hours today and well,
a few extra hours during the week. And tomorrow I have to
go to the dentist so yuck!
overall it's been a good week. My sister is settling down
nicely in the new house. I know my niece was over there this
weekend to celebrate her birthday and said she really liked
I have been so busy that I think that is about it for the
week. I know this is short but with all the work this week
and working out during the week, I am plain BEAT! Need to
get to Church for sure. Hopefully when I get a break from
work I can sit down and start evaluating churches. I know
God has been extremely good to me so at some point, He will
tug at my heart and show me the way.
hope you all have a great week and talk to you next week!

Got to spend some time with the family down in See-boring
(hehe) and the house is much nicer than I thought it was.
They are excited to have their own house to do what they want
with it and not have to pay someone else rent money. They
really have their act together and I could not be more proud
of them all! Even my nephew was happy about the place and
his room. Granted he's farther away from his friends but at
least there is no one else living them but the three of them
so I am extremely happy for them. There are a few other things
we need to take care of (water heater, disposal, painting,
etc) but that will come in time. All that I know is my mom
is looking down upon us and extremely happy for everyone.
has been busy as ever. I have more work to do next weekend
as well. I have another upgrade to do on the same cluster
that we couldn't get to next week but for now we're good.
Once that is done I have some other projects to knock out
and keep the boss happy. That's really what I need to work
on is STUDY more, work harder, knock out these projects and
keep myself on the straight and narrow.
a chance to talk one of my friends who recently became a Christian,
which I am very happy for him. He mentioned that some of God's
words can be confusing to someone new in the Faith but I reiterated
what I was told long ago. Be silent and God will speak clearly
to you. I'm glad he came to me and asked me questions. I know
the Church doctrine sometimes can seem off (and it is at times,
I am one who is known for getting in front of a Pastor when
I see them twisting or straying away from God's word). But
the main thing is it seemed to have cleared his mind a bit
and once God really gets you into His circle, everything becomes
clear as day.
had some chores to do this weekend which I knocked out and
I still need to get my car washed (which I haven't done yet).
I did mow the lawn here, got the grocery shopping and laundry
done. I still haven't found a new Church yet but I will. That
never stops me from reading His word daily and nightly and
I know that I have a strong relationship with Him, even though
I know I am far, far from perfect. Hope you all had a great
week too and talk to you soon!

8th -- Done and DONE! YAY!
Ok NOW I have some even greater news on the home
front. We closed on the house on Monday for my sister and
brother-in-law. It was a great deal, at the right time and
it was high time that my family had a place to call their
own. I've had my own home up in VA since Feb 2012 and well,
almost to the date 3 years later I was able to help my sister
too. They actually stayed in the place this past Friday night
for the first time and they love it. It's been a long journey
for my family but I am glad I did it and I am sure my mother
is looking down upon me and smiling!
be down there next week to help them move a few more things.
I know they are glad to be out of that old place for sure.
It was too noisy and even though the dogs had a place to roam,
it was just not a good place for them.
the work side, things are going well. I spent all day yesterday
working on a project that I can only do on the weekend. It
did indeed take all day but all I really had to do was baby-sit
the project. There are other changes going on but what I really
need to do is hunker down and study, study and study some
more. I have a good boss and he watches out for me. That's
all I can really ask for.
been missing my P90X3 work outs due to being a bit under the
weather but I think tomorrow I need to get back on my workout
and get it done. I am so out of shape right now it's making
me angry lol. At least when I was working from home in San
Diego it was a lot easier to work out. I didn't have to worry
about driving to and from work, lunch breaks, etc. It's not
a bad deal or anything, it's just harder for me to work out.
I wonder where people who work full time on site find the
time as well.
also really need to find a new Church here but I am waiting
to figure out where I am going to stay. There are a few church
here but none that meet on Saturday nights which is when I
like to go.
that is about it for the week. Hope you had a great week and
of course, I will check in with you next week as well.

1st -- we "march" on!!!
Now here I am thinking I would be able to report
some FANTASTIC news for my family. Well, I can sat with 100
percent certainty that the house my sister picked, we got
all the work done for that. The only thing left to do is send
the deposit and sign the documents which should happen on
Monday or Tuesday. Then my sister and brother in law have
her OWN home! I know my mom had hammered into me the value
and importance of family. Never did I imagine how much that
meant to her until the last 5 years or so (right around the
time I hit my head! Maybe that finally knocked some sense
dad (step) was here on Saturday and Sunday. That was pretty
cool as we had a nice dinner, got to watch a movie and just
hang out and shoot the breeze. I made sure he got to see the
fireworks that I get to see every night here. I actually KNOW
what time it is when the fireworks are going off lol. I don't
know how much time Pop has left on this planet but I do want
us to relish them few moments we get to have together.
than that I have been busy working (as normal) and not going
to Church like I would prefer. I have always kept up with
my daily chapters and devotionals and I will never stop doing
that. You have got to keep your mind on God as a priority
and, as you have seen in my life, everything falls into place
exactly where He intended it to be.
think we have some MotoGP coming up at the end of the month.
Hayden is going to be around the middle of the pack again
as normal but hey, he likes what he is doing and he is being
paid well. If it were me, I would have gone to WSBK which
is a more entertaining and FAIR race compared to MotoGP. At
least Valentino will be interesting again this year. Marquez
is the next version of the Dr. and he is getting old (we all
you had a fantastic and blessed week and weekend. Make sure
you keep your mind on God and God on your mind :) haha. I
love you all and God bless you!
