A lot has happened in the last three and one half months, a whole lot. For one, I got married to a wonderful girl, Heather. (Look on her website to see the pretty pictures.) The whole experience of dating, getting engaged, planning the wedding, the wedding, the honeymoon and moving in together is great blogging fodder but, alas, I never took advantage of it. We went to Victoria, BC for the honeymoon, and man let me tell you, it was the best. Check out Einer’s, it was the B&B that we stayed at and it cannot be topped.
One of the other things that happened to me in the last month is that I got laid off from my job. It was the grace of God that they gave me over two months notice so I was able to mobilize and find a new gig within a couple of weeks. It is a real blow to one’s confidence to be laid off even if it is just a financial thing, I was bummed for a week. But, I got three interviews right away and from those three I got two offers and a call back! Now that was a great confidence boost that more then offsets the previous blow.
So I am pretty happy right now. I have an awesome home life, a great new job and prospects for going back to school next fall to get me some continuing education. I want to work on being more active at my church, bluer, lose some weight and learn guitar but things are good over all.
If you think about it, pray for my mom. She has been fighting breast cancer for a year and a half now. It’s a real bummer but I am hopeful for the future. God can do anything so I am still praying for the miraculous and would ask you to also.
