Well, lots going on here lately.
Yesterday was Fischer’s baby blessing, so we had lots of family and friends over and then back to the house for a brunch. It was very nice to see some friends that we don’t get to see nearly enough. Guess everyone else is finding out that it’s a lot tougher with kids in the picture. Such is the case when you have a couple in tow.
I have recently posted some new family photos taken yesterday in the back yard. One of the four of us, and another of the boys. Turned out ok, considering they were taken on a tripod with a timer. Colors weren’t looking all that great so I did some touchup that looks pretty good- but I am not entirely convinced I love the way they turned out. But for the most part they are great.
I took this whole week off from work, as I am on the verge of a significant transition. My days at Xerox are numbered now, and the number is very small. I will be off this week and then go back to work next week through Wednesday and start my new venture on Thursday. That will be very exciting. I am very anxious to see what positive changes it brings for all of us. Financially, timewise, and other. Although I will not be able to take any vacation time until the end of the year it will be great because I won’t be bringing my work home with me every day. That is fantastic. Also, I will be going to Houston in the next few weeks for training, so I will try to bring the family with me. I think it will be a great thing if they can come out.
As for other things, this week is going to be a BIG week for getting things done. I am going to be doing some painting over the next few days. Kitchen, laundry room, bedroom. Also planning to get the garden boxes built and planted. Then maybe some riding and good family time with the boys. If I can actually get all of that done I will be a pretty happy guy.I don’t have a ton of time to do all of it, but we’ll see what gets accomplished by Friday. All I know is that it has felt pretty good so far to de junk-ify my office of all things Xerox. I have thrown out so much so far. I am anxious also to have a workspace outside of my home. I have been doing it for so long now that it will be kinda cool to not have a business line ringing at early hours or at whatever moment.
Until the next time-
