RIP, Dad | DJ | 59 Days Ago


A few weeks ago I received a call telling me that my dad had passed away. A couple of days ago I got back from my trip home to be with family, attended the memorial service, and take care of things. It was a nice trip - I stayed with my sister and her family for most of it at a rental house and then Great Wolf Lodge for the final night. Here is a brief recap:

Arrive Sunday - we did stuff this day, but for the life of me I can't remember exactly what

NEW BOSS | Kelley | 180 Days Ago


I have worked at Metso now for 6 months. It has been a roller-coaster of events. My fist boss was fired in November just before Thanksgiving. This week, it became official that I have a boss who is giving me hope for the future. I had to delay returning to college due to the heavy workload. The goal is to begin in November. I do not know what the future holds, but I start each day with hope that I can be a good influence on others through my discipline and determination to do a good job.

Corona Virus (what else?) | DJ | 197 Days Ago


Wow, even before the coronavirus came along, 2020 was already a horror show for a variety of reasons. Now we're here, over 3 weeks into near isolation, working from home, doing school, and basically in a time warp of weirdness. What day is it? We're watching a bunch of movies in our office while working, but other than what movie we're watching, the days are very similar and bleed into one another. The crazy part is that this may last 3 more weeks or even longer.

It is certainly no

OK, 2020, that's enough! | DJ | 276 Days Ago


It is natural to look at the start of a new year or decade and think that this is a new start, things will be better. Well, 2020 has not been that so far. Among some other minor things, Kelley started the year with a significant cold of some sort that lingered well into January. And then our beloved youngest cat, QB, who first showed signs of something amiss in December, passed away yesterday. This has left us heartbroken, but we will persevere.

I prefer to think of these things are

So, San Antonio | DJ | 339 Days Ago


We've been in San Antonio for about five and a half weeks now and it simultaneously seems both more and less than that. We received our household goods about four weeks ago and the place is really starting to come together. Our Christmas tree is up for the first time in years and stuff has started going up on the walls.

We're also settling into our jobs. Mine is pretty low key and easy at the moment and Kelley was dropped into a dumpster fire, so she is a little stressed out. The h

A matter of days | DJ | 1 Year Ago


It is now only a matter of days until we move out of this house and then a few more until we begin our journey to San Antonio. Just yesterday we had a BBQ here for Kelley's work section which was our last event here. Now the teardown and preparation for moving begins in earnest. We already have a house in SA, Kelley has a job, and everything is looking great. Our only struggle is going to be the three day, 23+ hour drive to get there in two cars. Exciting, scary, stressful, busy, bonkers, you na

It is starting to get real | DJ | 1 Year Ago


Over the past two months, we've had some things to distract us from the upcoming move to San Antonio - we went to Virginia Beach and then took a week trip to Traverse City for the Cherry Festival. Now we're approaching two months until we move and there are no trips or big events in the way. Just thoughts of moving and what needs to be done. It is exciting and stressful. We've started looking at houses and have seen some truly amazing ones. Hopefully, we'll be blessed with an amazing house in a

San Antonio? Yes! | DJ | 1 Year Ago


In an unexpected upset, we're moving to San Antonio this fall! From the last update, you would have read that we thought it was going to be DC, Alaska, or Georgia, but we got a better result than any of those places! It is about time we got a break as far as the military is concerned.

I am going to be a squadron superintendent, which is the job I most wanted, so everything is coming up great so far. Kelley will have to find a new job again, and that is stressful, but she has always

Moving or not? | DJ | 1 Year Ago


If the question of whether we are moving or not seems familiar, it totally is. We anticipated moving a year ago because of the promotion I received, and when we ended up not moving, it looked like this year we'd move, instead. That still might happen, but it might not. The waiting, either way, is annoying though. If we do move, our three most likely locations are Washington DC, Augusta, Georgia, and Anchorage, Alaska.

Honestly, we hope we don't move again this year. Kelley is kil

Future Projects Updated | DJ | 1 Year Ago


Almost three years ago I wrote about some future projects I was looking to work on - you can find that entry here. As might be expected, much has changed over the past three years. I'm not as far as I would have thought and hoped, but I am also much farther than what I was and the path forward to getting even more clear.
