of GOOD things!
this week was interesting -- both at work and in my private
time. Work as I always say was busy as heck and there are
a lot of priority changes so what was important then is not
now. Of course what wasn't important then is important now.
Needless to say I am going to be very busy when I get back
of which those plans are all set. Originally I was going to
fly to Tampa but instead I am going to fly to Orlando. I also
paid for my niece to fly in from Arkansas and she'll be there
a few hours ahead of me. I'll pick her up and then we'll drive
down to her moms for Thanksgiving. I plan on stuffing my face,
playing a LOT of golf and hanging out with friends. Even though
Florida can be boring at times, if you have a good imagination
and some extra energy you can make fun out a molehill - LOL.
week I sponsored a child in Bolivia. This was the first time
I've done this though I have been thinking about it for a
long time. It's not really as much as I would like to but
if this goes well for her then I will probably sponsor a few
more. I just feel like God wants me to help others and this
is a good way to start the process.
work was hard this week but good for me. My legs are sore
as ever and I went back to heavier weight. Earlier I had swapped
back over to more reps with lighter weight but now its back
to less reps with more weight. I am easily able to bench 225
again so I'll see if I can press that up to over 250lbs. Definitely
the extra work makes me feel better and while I am always
sore, it tells me that I'm working them hard.
was great as always even though Pastor Bob was away traveling.
I need to go even on days I just don't feel well.
I got my Blue Ray DVD player installed and also received the
Avatar collectors edition which is GREAT. You wouldn't believe
how much work was put into that movie so my hats are off to
them. I am already excited for the next two that are coming
out in about 3 years - lol. Hey, to make a masterpiece you
have got to take your time and do it right :)
that is about it for the week. Have a GREAT Thanksgiving.
I won't be checking in for the next couple of weeks while
I am on vacation so if you want to reach me, try FaceBook

not bad overall, really. Even though we had Veteran's Day
off (thank you, my fellow Vets!) and on top of that I worked
half a day on Tuesday (golf!) I still got a lot of work done.
A week ago Friday I got those two solutions done and last
week I worked with the group downstairs to get them certified.
So that feels good, when you get things done so you can work
on the next thing coming along.
took a "Pre" Security+ test and got a 95 so I suppose
I am ready to take the ACTUAL Security+ test (lol). This certification
is required by the Government so it would be in my best interest
to get it done as soon as possible. When I complete this one
I am going to go back and get the Network+ cert and then try
for CISSP (tough one for sure but needed).
also have some things in the work to support the Rady Children's
hospital. Rady was helpful with the Nguyen family and I am
very sorry their son passed away. That has to be awful to
deal with as a parent. Even my mom said "The one thing
I cannot handle in this life is having a child die before
me..." so I can understand how hard it is for parents
to deal with such a tragic loss. I have personally kicked
in out of my own pocket and hope we can get others to do the
Friday I went and hung out with my friends. Had a really great
time at the Noodle House. It's right near the beach, Ocean
Beach to be exact and man they really do have the best food
ever. We got to hang out and chat and stuff so it was good.
On Saturday I was feeling sick so I stayed in most of the
day. Had a bad headache (still having those since they worked
on my dome). We didn't do a boot camp on Saturday either so
that was good.
I got a lot of chores done and got to watch the Bucs beat
up on the Panthers (sorry, Carolina!). I have a few other
things to take care of and then I have to start planning my
visit home next week. It will be good to sit down with my
family for Thanksgiving, play some golf and generally relax.
that is it for now. MotoGP, WSBK and AMA racing are done until
the end of March so I am left with the NFL (and the occasional
Magic or Lightning game). Have a great rest of your week!

good week overall, no doubt. Had a lot of stuff to get done
for work but that's fine because I got the projects off my
plate by Friday which was my goal. I have a couple of other
things to finish this week as well. We even have Thursday
off so I'll be studying for a "Pre" final exam for
the Security+ certification. Once I am done with this one
I'll go back and get a few more certifications as well.
of which I have been asked to join a few charitable causes
for work so I am pretty excited about that. I'm helping out
with a few sales and I think in addition I'll be helping a
bit with the Marine Corps "Toys for Tots" drive
this year. That'll be something well worth investing my time
the week was fun. I hung out with a friend a few times this
week who is here for school. We went out to eat and then hung
out on Friday as well. That was actually pretty fun except
for the fact on the way there I somehow managed to ding my
right rear wheel. Now I am not sure if I am going to replace
the wheel or replace the wheels and tires as a whole. I am
being frugal with my cash, saving up and paying off bills.
Not really sure what do to there.
I went to boot camp. Hadn't done one in a while and this one
kicked my tail pretty good. I mean, it's Sunday and my hammies
are still hurting, lol. Definitely don't feel like doing much
but watching NFL games. Speaking of that the Bucs had a chance
to put the Falcons away at the end of the game today and we
blew it. That's ok. We're making progress and we get to play
those guys again before the end of the year.
night after another great service from Pastor Bob I decided
to stay in (well I mean, I was still sore from the Sat AM
workout). Avatar was on and I have never seen it before. Have
to admit it was pretty good. Better than I expected though
because I missed like the first 30 minutes of it I was a tad
lost there for a while.
"Fall Back" time so I stupidly woke up at like 6am
this morning. I think it will be a good time to take a nap
later. Watched the MotoGP race and have to say I am a tad
disappointed at what happened to Nicky. That said, the new
year starts in March so I'll be looking forward to it.
about it for now. Getting excited about going home in a few
weeks. Oh and I even get to leave work early on Tuesday to
play some golf. Sssssh :).
to you later! :)
