much to do, so little time...
Picked up my sister's 4Runner this weekend so I have
something that can tow a U-Haul trailer. Since I don't have
a lot of friends in the area, it looks like I'll be moving
everything myself. Besides, I didn't have an volunteers either.
Not completely true. My GOOD friend said her dad would help
but I don't want to put that stress on him and he's retired!
He shouldn't be working!
things I have to do! So much -- but I have already a lot of
the check marks done. Got my sister's SUV, reserved the trailer,
got a dolly and other things I need. Taking 3 days off of
work next week (well deserved since I already have about 100
extra hours over time that I do not charge them for) so I
can go get the keys and remote on Weds, move on Thursday,
get everything done by Friday then I have a HUGE upgrade to
do on Saturday. Needless to say, I really SHOULD be charging
for all the extra overtime I put in.
I found out how DISAPPOINTED I am in Lovie Smith. If he says
he is the MAN when it comes to defense, how come you are losing
games when you are up 24-0 in the first quarter? Oh yeah,
BAD COACH!!! Washington just schooled you today and if I have
another Rep. from the Bucs called me about game tickets, I
am going to answer him by saying "Only if you let me
talk to Ownership and the Head Coach -- mano-e-mano meeting,
was really good today! I haven't been NORMALLY going to Church
on Sundays but I guess since I am not on lEAST Coast, it makes
sense :) Pastor is good, Church is good, just need to talk
to them about the Cross on the wall. God says "NO GRAVEN
IMAGES!" and I really think they need to take it down.
Don't worship the cross, worship our Lord and Savior and OUR
God! :) And no, I am NOWHERE NEAR close to being perfect.
Only ONE ever was!
that is aBOOT it for this week (Canadian pun!). There is some
MotoGP stuff to watch but I still have some chores to get
done. Have a BLESSED weekend and talk to you soon!

"oot" of time!
Yep! I am running out of time getting everything
together in order to be completely moved by the 29th. Well,
at the end of the day at the soonest. I still have to figure
out how to move everything I own by myself -- which means
disassemble and reassemble solo! Gonna be hard but I know
God has my back and I will get this done. Much like at work,
when I say I am going to do something that is what I do!
else is fine. I got an upgrade done yesterday (Saturday) and
I have 2 more to go the next 2 Saturdays PLUS I have an upgrade
Tuesday at 2am! Uggg! Means I will go to bed around 8am and
then work from home the rest of the day. We have a window
where we can get things done and that is pretty much about
it. You either get it done in that window or you're done for
the night and have to start again. lol. That's work.
was GREAT today with my "friend" and I really enjoyed
the Pastor today. Nice Church. It's not Horizon but hey, I
like it just the same. Football and Baseball was not so good
this weekend. Gators finally lost a tough game at Death Valley
but hey, that is life. You cannot win them all. The CUBS are
in the NLDS and lost the first game to the Mets yesterday.
They have another game tonight I think and I'll be watching
if I can squeeze in the time.
than that, not much else to add. All I can say is I hope you
all had a great weekend, that you understand you are blessed
by God and if you think things are bad, think about others
who are far less fortunate than you. Give back -- because
God asks us to.

when I am not working, I am anyway....
I'm not on call this week, but that said, I am the
secondary and I know some issues with the storage I am working
on so I have been paying attention to it. I always have to
pay attention to what is going on lest I have another Sev1
or Sev2 call and end up having to work an entire weekend and
turn in a RCA (which stands for "Root Cause Analysis").
Fun, nerdy stuff eh?
couple of weeks in the town home before I move. Man, I have
so much to do as well. I have to rent the trailer. I have
to go to See-Boring on the 25th and borrow the 4Runner. I
have to reserve the trailer. I will spend the next week or
so knocking out the change of address, moving my DirecTV and
inter-webs over and then making sure I sign up for the water
and stuff (coz at a house, I have to pay for water -- who
knew?!). I really hate moving. I'm sure I have said that 1000
times but sheesh, I never expected this owner to sell it and
had he told me he had intentions of selling it, I would not
have rented here.
next place is a house but my goal is to get something with
the Mouse more permanent and then just buy a house. That of
course means I have to sell the home in VA. It'll be the 3rd
home I have bought in the last 4 years. One for me in VA,
one for my family in See-boring and one more for me here in
slOwrlando. Hah. I definitely miss SOCAL for sure but I am
adjusting well. I'm no the red-necky type so hunting, fishing,
etc do not appeal to me. Nor does mud bogging, lol!
was great this weekend and got to hang out with the most important
person in my life. That's always a good feeling. Love is a
good feeling! MotoGP was on this weekend and it was a great
race, the Bucs won and the Gators won. So all in all it was
a great weekend!
you had a good one and I will check in you next weekend when
I have a better idea of when I am moving!

on the good news side, my contract was renewed....
Trust me, I was sweating it a bit. Look, I know I
work hard and I do the best job I can do. Sometimes and for
some companies, your best just isn't enough. I was concerned
that with the way the commercial business goes they would
just say "Meh, we don't need you!" Then what do
I do? There are certainly not enough jobs in Florida to keep
me around and to stay would mean a HUGE (and I mean HUGE)
pay cut. I mean, I can live on a lot less. Always have been
able to live within my budget.
But that doesn't mean I should take a huge pay cut to stay
here. I dunno. God's always got my back and I have never had
to worry before, so I am not about to start worrying now.
Worry simply means you do not trust that God will take care
of you. So whether I stay here or end up traveling to places
I have never been before, I know that is His plans for me.
My friends think I am crazy or something but again, I've never
suffered for believing in Him.
for this weekend, I am ON CALL again. Hate it but gotta do
it. Basically it means you're on house arrest (not really
but if something happens you need to be on a call asap!).
For instance I got called on Weds night at 11:15pm and yesterday
at 11am. Each time it was a simple thing but really, I know
how to fix all these problems so I am going to my boss tomorrow.
I already know what most of the issues are that are causing
the problems so I will fix it.
is about it for the week to be honest! I hope you had a great
and BLESSED week! God is always looking out for you, I assure
you of that. Never lose your faith because He never loses
faith in YOU that you will always be at His side.
a good one!
