We tried to enjoy ourselves this holiday. As much as you can when you are trying repeatedly to hack up a lung. We spent several hours at my in-laws on thursday and did the traditional dinner. Some of H's family were in town and then some we just don't get the chance to see very often. Saturday J & M and of course Mrs. B came over for a holiday meal. I will admit that I pushed for it to be at my house since I am practically chained to my laptop. I think it went pretty well. Mom got here around 8am and she and I started getting the turkey ready. We ran to the store and barely got back in time for J & M to arrive. We had a great meal and it was good to see J & M again. I don't get to see/talk with them nearly enough since they moved. H & I had to pass on their offer to go up to the Bone for drinks etc. that evening. Once our drugs wore off we were back to coughing like crazy. We ended up vegging on the couch and being as lazy as possible on Sunday. H is still coughing a lot but I think we are both nearly healthy again. I can't wait. I just left the house for the 2nd time in a week today to go to work. I have been cooped up for so long I am almost looking forward to Christmas shopping. That alone speaks volumes. Anyway, I hope everyone is well and has a happy, safe, and healthy holiday season.

Work is still crazy as hell but I feel like I am getting a better handle on stuff. I have two new people lined up to start in my department. Now I not only have to do all the work but I also have to train people in. What fun!!! This should eventually make it possible for me to have somewhat of a social life again and I am really looking forward to that.

Another issue I have been having lately is that I feel a bit like a prisoner. I miss seeing my friends. I miss being able to go to the bar for dinner and a drink. I miss having any freedom whatsoever. It seems that if I leave my house to do anything other than go to the office it has to be commando mission and must be completed as soon as possible so I can be home in case I am needed for work. On call 24/7. Right now life pretty much sucks. /end rant.

I have been meaning to post this but work has been crazy to say the least. The decklet is done and I am now on to work on inside projects. Well. . . at least inside the garage. We will see. I have enough painting to keep me occupied for a while but I do have some organizational issues going on in the garage. I guess I had better make up my mind. Oh, and I know I said I was going to post a picture of my new fence but surprisingly chain link fences dont really show up well in photos. At least mine doesn't.

Now that we have a fence we decided that instead of waiting until next spring to build our deck we would put up temporary stairs. So the "Decklet" was born. Granted, it is nothing really special but the wife and I did the work on this all by ourselves. This way we can let the dogs out to play or go to the bathroom. This is especially handy since winter is coming up. It really sucks to have to stand out in the cold waiting for Bandit to find her place to go. Next summer hopefully will be the "Coming of Deck". If everything works out as I would like we will be having a BBQ on the 4th of July. We watched fireworks from 5 different cities this past year and that was from ground level. I am as excited as a teenager with a six-pack.

I know, I am slacking. I said at the inception of this blog that I would try to keep it up. This spring and summer has been quite the ride. To begin with I finally got up enough courage and exhaustion to cut back to one job. This was probably a good thing. I have been putting in a ton of hours just at the one. We have been going like gangbusters to keep up. On top of that, my colleague and mentor Sean is now out on paternity leave.

I have been keeping busy on the home front as well. On March 17th we added another puppy into our midst. Pepper is a high energy attention whore who keeps us from sitting still for long.

After many years of feeling guilty for ripping down her old (and extremely dangerous) deck, I was finally able to participate in building Mom B a new one. Between Jas hitting his head on the joists and me falling into footings it was fairly comical yet we still managed to do a pretty good job. The inspector had issues with only a few things and we are still working on getting them fixed. I think we have addressed most of the problems so far so the end is in sight. The best part however is that Mom is happy with it. Also it was good practice for me to eventually build my own.
We also made the trip down to Oklahoma this summer to help Jas and Michele move. It was nice to get away for a few days. Next time though I am not moving anything. Overall I think the move went pretty well.
The next highlight of our summer was the addition of a fence to our backyard. After several weeks of planning and acquiring permits and basic putzing around, we finally got started on the project. Shortly after beginning, the weather turned foul and rainy. This delayed our construction a little but as of last Saturday we are pretty much done. We did have to send a gate back to be re sized but the hole it left in its absence was patched temporarily and Bandit and Pepper have been able to run free for a bit each night (photos coming soon). We have also planted a few trees to eventually shade our back yard. We had two maples donated from Mom B and three oaks from Mom and Dad G. Now we get to start plotting and planning our landscaping. The deck will be waiting until next spring due to the unexpected cost of the fence. As of now we are debating building a set of temporary stairs to hold us over in the meantime.
Now as we are nearing fall I am regretting not getting out on the motorcycle a bit more but I am happy with all that we did get done. Work on the inside of the house will swing back into high gear once the weather turns and all the festivals and other extra curricular activities are done. With that said I will get back to slacking. I hope everyone is well and I also hope to see you all soon. Carry on.

2. I am very well liked. Most people would assume that is because I am a really nice guy. Now this can be true depending on the situation, however I see myself as being ornery, cantankerous, and extremely anal. Also I find that I have a very short amount of patience for anything or anyone I consider to be ignorant and/or tiresome.
3. I have a great memory for peoples faces and what they drink (legacy of too many years as a bartender) yet for the life of me have the hardest damn time remembering names.
4. I have an aptitude for figuring out how things work and will often take on extremely daunting projects around the house personally rather than pay someone to do them.
5. I have a great aversion to calling people on the phone. It does not scare me, I just don't like doing it.
