It’s been a long time since I last posted. Part of me feels bad for leaving it abandoned for so long, I wouldn’t even have this if it weren’t for the kindness of Editor B.
Since starting my new job, I have felt “disconnected.” My life has been connected to computers and technology since I was a teenager and I haven’t had the time to enjoy my computer much lately. I cannot access computers while at work
Many things have happened since then, so I will update. Hang on, cause there is much to say.
My daughter has officially graduated 1st grade, and left the state. She took my heart with her. With the help of my wife (thanks Rach) we made her a goodbye present. A DVD filled with a slideshow with pictures of her and everyone who loves her. It also included video of many of her loved ones saying goodbye and giving some life lessons.
I’ll miss you sweetheart!
My video business has suddenly picked up. I am now more busy than not with projects people are wanting me to do for them. I am going to advertise for the first time as well. It also helps out high schoolers so I say why not? I have also added a new service: Cassette tape to CD or MP3 transfers!
Work has been crazy. I have been pushed to a point where I no longer think of it as a possible career anymore, just a job. I am treated like scum, which is also what I clean. With the heat and humidity, I can barely stand it. Just like a few of my co-workers.
My little sister has moved in with us for a couple of weeks. Her lease was up, and she has a new place lined up. It’s just a matter of timing until she gets in.
We have picked up the pace on house projects. Over the last few weekends we have removed the hideous wallpaper around our home.
Interestingly enough, underneath all of this were drawings. These drawings were made by the children who lived here at the time. We only have the kitchen and Taylor’s room to go. Currently I am prepping the walls for paint. We need them to be as perfect as possible for the deep, rich tones we have decided on for paint.
I also installed a new light fixture in our dining room. We found a beautiful set for the dining room and foyer areas. The one for the foyer has 2 tiers and is much larger. Installation will be a different story though, as the ceiling is 1 1/2 stories high.
I cut down the dead tree in our backyard, that was fun! I haven’t done that in over 10 years! I have cleaned up much of it, but there is a lot more to go. I am saving as much as possible for firewood, as I would like to use my fireplace sometime.
I wrecked my truck:(
The damage isn’t bad, just the bumper and a side piece to it. I was returning from mowing at work, and while backing up jack-knifed my trailer. It’s easy to do with a trailer that’s so small you can’t see it behind you. And it just happens that my neighbors grandson just wrecked his truck which is essientially the same as mine. It’s totalled, but the bumper is good! I spoke with him today and I might get a new bumper on the cheap!
Hopefully once a few things settle down, I can start posting more often.
