New Things and Old
This post is basically to let you all know that yes I am still alive. Things have been very hectic over the last year, and to put it mildly it’s been a roller coaster ride. There have been plenty of ups, and a few downs over the past year or so, and well, there’s a lot.
On the upswing my wife and I did move into our own house. Its funny how you never really realize how much stuff you have until it’s piled up in boxes in your living room. My son has started second grade, my wife is teaching a class that she loves (So far, it’s still early in the school year, but she’s been far less stressed than she normally is this point in the year), and I am back serving as Receptionist at the Carolina Renaissance Festival, which as you all know is a place that I love with all my heart.
On the down side, things have gotten very political for us over the past year, and while I try to avoid talk of politics and religion, it’s rather difficult in this day and age. As a veteran and a teacher we are very concerned about the our futures, and as a father, I see a LOT of hate in the world today, and I find myself trying to explain things to my son. Even today I woke up to a mass shooting in Las Vegas, and I am at a loss for words.
Where we moved we feel fairly safe. The neighbors are friendly, my son has made friends with a little boy across the street, and I go to bed feeling mostly secure. I still make sure all my doors are locked, but I don’t feel like I HAVE to sleep with a weapon within reach.
Right now I have a few irons in the fire and I’m hoping to work them into something spectacular, but that’s all I can really say about those for now.
