Up to my ears in work this week! I have so much to
do. I have to deliver the cashier's check for the deposit
on the house I am renting. Well, it's a lot more expensive
than where I live BUT it does indeed have a pool. What is
odd is I have to go buy a washer/dryer (grrr) and a mower
and weed eater. That or I pay about 100 smack-a-roonies per
month to pay someone else to do it. Over the course of a year
it's cheaper for me to do it myself and I'll do a better job.
are building houses behind where this house is BUT in front
of me is only a tennis court. So that is good (nobody is playing
tennis in Florida when it's 99 degrees outside and 100% humidity!
LOL. I HATE the tile. I hate the cheap plastic counter tops
and this place isn't worth the cash BUT I can stay there as
long as I need to find a home of my own here.
of which, I do not think I am getting the full time job but
my boss likes me enough that he's going to keep me for another
year. In fact, he invited me to go play golf with him on Friday
after work. That was fun! I know he has some changes in place
so all I really have to do is my job and stay out of trouble.
They like me there not because I am the smartest guy on the
planet (I am NOT) but I just work hard and love what I do.
And whatever I do not know, I am willing to go learn on my
own. In fact, my boss told me to "catch up on the stuff
you haven't touched in a while and the stuff you need to learn".
Good enough for me.
am dog sitting this week. The original plan was to take her
back tonight but I decided today that I am going to keep her
here with me until my family makes it home to Sebring. Then
I will drive her back probably Tuesday night. Monday night
I have to drive out to Orlando in the evening and drop off
this check. I've already reached out to some movers, I know
I need to get boxes, I have to change my address, -- blah
blah blah! So much to do, so little time get it done.
you had a great weekend and God Bless you all! Watching the
Pope was fantastic!

What do I do this weekend? WELL -- I got to see my
nephew play in a varsity football game! He did pretty well
when they put him in there. I am very proud of him and it
appears some of the wisdom I am passing on to him is sinking
in. The way God lays out the plans for us, 99.999% of the
time it's nowhere NEAR where we wanted it to be. That is where
you give up SELF and give it over to GOD! :) I cannot think
of a better place to be in life than in God's hands.
weekend I got a bunch of chores done and signed the lease
for the new house. I am trying to get some movers in place
because -- frankly, I DO NOT want to move this stuff myself,
haha. But at least with the new place, even though it cost
a lot more, it's NOT a town home and I will have more peace
and quiet. I also have a lake (well, pond) behind me as well.
I don't fish, but it'll be good to get some chairs out and
do some BBQ? Maybe!
actually went to Church with my VERY VERY close friend (ok,
you can say girlfriend but you all know I do not talk about
my deeply personal stuff here) and that was really fun too.
New Church -- and a lot different than the "Calvary"
based Churches that I like (RIP: Chuck Smith!). Maybe we can
find another. It was so odd that I found one in VA right near
where my house was so maybe God's plan for me is to find another
house here close to a CALVARY Church. Note to Pastors: NO
GRAVEN IMAGES!!! :)
also got to watch the Bucs win their FIRST win of the season
and first win against the 'Aints since like 2011. Good dealio!!!
And Johnny Rea won Race 1 and nearly won Race 2 in WSBK. Next
race he wins, he is the champ. Too bad he didn't do it on
the Honda but in all fairness Honda wasn't giving him the
best chance to win anyway!
That is about it for the week. I pray you all have a great
weekend and stay safe!!!

a house for a year now....
That is because looking for a home around here has
been a gigantic pain in the buttocks! I found a house about
10 minutes from work. It's bigger and more expensive and probably
needs some work but it will suffice for now. That allows me
more time to put some money away, sell the house in VA and
find a good house with a larger down payment. I think this
has been God's plan all along (even though I the first to
admit I am never in sync with His plans all the time). So
I start moving around the middle of October or late October.
Still gotta find some movers and boxes, change my address,
a GREAT weekend with the family in Sebring. I took them out
to dinner and went to Church with them today which was also
a nice change of pace. The Church is good, just not MY Church
in San Diego which I miss a lot. I would also ask for a prayer
if you have one for me because I have a full time interview
with the Mouse tomorrow so we shall see how that goes. It
also means I will take a large pay cut as well, heh. I knew
that would happen but maybe they'll negotiate a bit with me?
I don't know. Only God knows how that is going to work out.
has helped a lot that I get great feedback from other groups
that I work with and they send that to my boss which is also
good! I cannot tell you how grateful I am when someone sends
in a good note or two about me. It helps show my value to
the company and backs up all my hard work.
that is about it for the week. The Buccaneer game is on shortly
so I will be watching that and getting to bed early. I want
to be prepared as best as possible for the interview tomorrow.
I hope you all had a great week and I'll talk to you again

more house hunting -- at least for a year....
So the house hunting adventures are off for now.
I am just sick and tired of being nickled and dimed to death
by builders and the other options from mortgage companies
mean I am short of funds to buy a decent house. Besides, I
am never sure what is going on at work and I think it's better
to wait a bit and see how things work out before I make a
decision. Besides, it's God's will that I should be waiting
for not my own. Every time I try to force things to happen
on my own, God steps in and says "No my son, you will
wait for Me!"
think that's the best position to be in. Waiting for God!
else is going OK. I have been playing on the softball team
at work and pulled a few muscles on Thursday but I am healing
up a lot better. I hope to be ready to play on Thursday as
we have a late night game (9:30). That's a really late start
for us but it should be OK. We lost the game last Thursday
in the final inning by one point. We played a lot better than
what we did the week before and I missed a home run by a few
feet! LOL. Ok maybe next time!
no MotoGP going on this weekend but the Gators did win their
first game of the College Football Season so that was good!
I don't want to talk about the nut cases shooting our Police
Officers or how the "Black Lives Matter" movement
makes me laugh when they don't even care about their own lives.
At a 10-1 ratio, more blacks are killed by blacks (10-1) than
whites kill blacks or COPS kill blacks. And if you are killed
by a Police Officer, why are you being arrested?! Maybe society
should obey the law. If they did this country would get back
to being strong, healthy and a nation the rest of the world
could look up to.
now -- we look laughable to the world while Russian sends
submarines off the coast of Georgia and China sends ships
to the cost of Alaska. Yep. Keep voting for "career"
Politicians and this is what we get. Anarchy!!!!
