It’s been a while since I’ve put virtual pen to paper, (or real pen to paper, for that matter), but I’m back, baby! New name, new design and, hopefully, new things to say.
Things have changed quite a bit since the last time I posted, ( can’t believe it’s almost been a year!) mostly for the good. I’ve just completed a year at Lebhar-Friedman. Our department was slashed from five people to two and a half. My manager, myself, and one other, who’s working part-time. Not only that, but, because of the recession, I also received a pay cut. But, hey, at least I have a job, and I did get an extra ten vacation days as well. So, it’s not all bad.
I’m also coming up on my two year wedding anniversary in a little less than three months! My lovely wife Heather and I met almost three years ago (on MySpace, if you can believe that!) and we’re still going strong. It’s been a rough couple of years for us; Heather got pancreatitis in February of ’08, then her dad died this January, followed in February by one of her aunts. But we both know one thing – no matter how big our problems are, we know our God is bigger. “Blessed [be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.” (2 Cor. 1:3-5)
I’m also back in school, going for a business degree to match the graphic design degree I already have. This is my third month at Keiser University, and right now I’m suffering through Accounting class. But, hey, we do what we have to do to get where we want to go.
Speaking of doing what we have to do, Heather and I joined Weight Watchers a month ago. I had tried everything beforehand, but I lacked motivation. Well, with WW, I definitely have found motivation! I’ve lost a total of 12.2 pounds in 4 weeks, and I’m still going strong! The program is also working for Heather! I would highly recommend them to anyone else who’s tried everything else. I eat well, probably better than I did before, because now I eat well with food that’s good for me. I’m really excited about seeing the weight drop off, and I’m feeling much better too! And, as the saying goes, nothing tastes as good as it feels to be healthy.
I’m also in the process of redesigning my website. I’m stuck right now for a name for my design business, though. I’ve got a few ideas rattling around, but nothing that’s caught fire yet. I’m hoping to have the redesign done by the end of July.
So, once again, welcome to my new and improved blog . Please feel free to drop me a line and let me know what you think.
