you had a Happy Thanksgiving!
I am not sure how to top off the last couple of weeks.
The only thing better would be if the "Mouse" would
make me a full time offer, lol. I hate not knowing what the
future holds but I do know that it's in God's hands and I
do not control it. All you can do is have faith (No, not the
George Michael song, but close! "Ya gotta have faith-ah,
faith-ah, faith! BABY! I know you're asking me to stay, please
please please please don't go away, you know your giving me
the bluuuues!" SORRY!)
Got to spend the first part of Thanksgiving with the Fiance
which was really fun. Got to meet some of her family members
(most didn't even know about me lol). I had to bail out early
as I had the solo drive down to "See Boring" to
hang out with my family as well. Really good as well (calm,
quiet, fun). Then I had to drive back as I had work to do
the next day.
Friday I was knocking out some work and was taking some NetApp
training when the boss says "Hey, let's go play gold!".
OK! You don't need to tell me that twice. So we got to play
on one of the really nice Mouse courses that used to hold
the PGA. After that I bolted straight home and I ended up
getting more work done. On Saturday I had so much work to
do and I went to mow the law. Want to hear something funny?
It takes me 3-4 pulls to get it started. On the last pull,
it started AND the pull broke. So I was able to mow the lawn
but could not leave the mower because if I did it wouldn't
not start again. Needless to stay, I had to order another
pull starter from Amazon.
was thinking today, "I need stuff!" Place mats for
the kitchen table, a stand and a TV for the living room (moving
that TV into my bedroom, the bedroom to the living room and
then a new TV for the living room). That will clean everything
up nicely. I need a breakfast nook table and a patio table
and chairs for the VERY RARE time I can work at home and sit
by the pool. Ah, life is rough eh? No, GOD IS GREAT! :) He
has blessed me far, far, FAR more than I deserve and sometimes
I feel like pinching myself. So hard to believe that all the
trials I have been through (and I am sure more are to come)
that a) I am still alive and b) through my faith, He has still
blessed me regardless of all my faults.
hope you had a great weekend as well. Sorry to both my Gators
and Bucs. Bad weekend for futbol! :)

Great week with family! Work was busy as heck (it's
busy today as well, I am almost always working or I might
be catching up with sleep! I have to do that since sometimes
during the week I end up working crazy hours. At least this
week I got a lot of stuff completed and I have managed to
keep any Sev1 or Sev2 tickets away from management, lol. The
less they are involved, the better everything else goes because
if it gets that far, something has gone south -- FAST!
was good though I was solo today. You know who your are :)
Missed ya in Church. I got to spend time hanging out with
my family and today I had to get the yard mowed between waiting
for a couple of things. I still managed to get laundry done
and a few other chores completed.
am going to get back to it. Thanksgiving is coming up this
week. What are you thankful for? Me? I am thankful that God
has blessed me despite my own problems! He forgives us, as
long as we accept that He is who He says He is :) Have a great
weekend and talk to you after the Holiday!

WEEK and evil permeates this world!
Even though I am sick it ended up being a pretty
good week. I guess you can say I am officially off the market
and I would say, engaged :) She is the right one and I know
that God knew this all along. Even though we have doubts about
ourselves, His plans are always greater than our own. So the
less we try to interfere with His plans the better off we
all are. I am happy, she is happy. She loves me, I love her.
Great match that is all I can say. When God's hand is upon
it, there's nothing else you can say!
on to the terrible news in France. This is the worst attack
since 9-11. I know the French had these people on the watch
list bur France is a more liberal country than even ours and
they didn't stop them. Hind sight is 20/20 they say and I
pray for France and I stand with France. Having been there,
it's such a great country to visit (as long as you stay away
from the Mooslim-only areas -- that's another story) and you'll
have a great time. Just make sure you at least try to speak
French first. Just say "Desole, J'en compres pas. Parlez
vous Anglais?" I hope I spelled it right, Lord knows
I used it a lot in France. The fact that President Holland
said out loud "We are at war!" I certainly do not
understand why Obummer won't say it. Islam is at war with
America and we need to stop them out now or it's only going
to get worse. That's why I will vote Republican and the ONLY
candidate who can destroy Radical Islam and shore up our borders.
No Syrian refugees, no more illegals. The LAW is the LAW!
We are expected to follow it, so should everyone else! PRAY
been sick since Wednesday and just starting to feel a little
better. I am on call the rest of the this week but should
be good to go for Thanksgiving! No more MotoGP and no more
Nicky Hayden to watch. I want to see Valentino win one more
championship and then it'll just be all Spanish riders and
no one will watch it. BORING! Need some diversity in MotoGP.
Hey the Bucs beat the Cowpokes today! WOW! Sloppy game but
a win is a win! I hope you have a blessed rest of you week
and talk to you soon!

week, I would say!
So I got moved into the new place safely. Moved almost
everything over myself which I mentioned in last week's blog.
I took off from work a little bit early because of the 13
hours I put in last Saturday. I got a chance this weekend
to cement a promise I made to someone and when that announcement
is ready, and I am sure it will be sooner rather than later,
you will hear about it here on FB :)
kept me pretty busy and of course I am dealing with the property
management company that manages this place. They are "shady"
to say the least. The contact guy over there only contacts
me when he wants $$$. He hasn't followed up with the million
of other issues he needs to get fixed and I really know for
a fact I am NOT staying here. Even if I do like the neighborhood,
I can do better!
that's about it for the short week. Pool party at my house
in a few weeks and got to spend time with my step dad today
which was really good. I'm going to do something special for
him soon! Love you Pop and I love you too. You know who!

work this week....
Had to take 3 days vacation to prepare for this move
if you can believe that. Not only did I have to get everything
ready for the move, I also had WORK to do all day Saturday
(literally) to get everything I had scheduled to do at the
office. You know what made that even more fun? My laptop would
NOT boot up. Had to scramble, run over to the office, find
a laptop I could borrow and start the work there. Once I got
everything going and with a break, I ran back home and connected
there. I still do not have a working laptop yet but my boss
says he has one I can use tomorrow.
for the move, I got almost everything done on my own. The
only bad part? I was trying to move my entertainment center
solo down the stairs and you guessed it, I lost a handle on
it and BLAM! Right into the wall with a 2x2 inch hole in the
wall. I called the owner and let him know I would pay for
the damages. He was very kind to me about that saying "I
am glad you are ok!" and I was more worried about the
damage. Needless to say I am ok.
was the "major" move day where I had a friend from
work help me move the living room and bedroom stuff. It wasn't
that much so the rest of the stuff I moved myself. You know
how I am -- I have been doing things myself all my life so
I am just used to it. I got everything done around 1am on
Thursday night then had to bring the UHaul trailer back. Friday
I spent most of the day setting everything up and then Friday
night was great because my sister came into town to stay the
night and went to dinner with me and my girlfriend. That was
really good as I want them to spend more time getting to know
each other. And you know me, when I go to dinner, it's high
class places :) I love it. Great company, great people, great
I talked about already and today was getting the washer/dryer
I had to buy (doh!) and getting that set up then finishing
the rest of things I had to do at the house. I had to go to
Lowe's to get some more things for the house and go grocery
shopping so unfortunately had to miss Church (me no likey!).
Some other good news, the Bucs actually won and beat Atlanta
and the Gators beat Georgia so all in all, a good weekend.
I am tired. REALLY tired and I know I need to get back to
working out. That will happen again tomorrow since this house
has far more room than the town home had. It's a 5 minute
longer drive than normal, lol, so I am good there.
you had a great weekend and will talk to you next week. PS:
Next vacation I am going to the UK!
