Moving or not? | DJ | 56 Days 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 | 133 Days 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.

School sucks | DJ | 189 Days Ago


If you look around this site, it becomes clear that over the last 6 to 9 months updates have waned. Pictures of the month are behind, blogs and news posts are infrequent, and no features have been added. I started my Master's Degree program just after Thanksgiving last year and while the first class was cake, since then it has been a real drag. Kelley started her own Master's Degree program in May and that has made both of our lives seriously school-focused since.

We went on a cruise! | DJ | 357 Days Ago


The TLDR or "short, short version" about what we did

We did a 7 day Caribbean cruise with DJ's sister, Lori, her husband, James, and their kids, Oliver and Lucy. We flew from Newport News to Houston and sailed from Galveston. We had stops in Cozumel, Mexico; Grand Cayman Island; and Falmouth, Jamaica. We did some cool shore excursions at each stop (Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza at Cozumel, an island tour of Grand Cayman, and a waterfall climb and cave exploration in Jamaica) and

Moving is hard work | DJ | 359 Days Ago


We moved to our new house six days ago and man, that was some super hard work. I was more exhausted than I've been in quite some time. The only times I can remember it being worse was after our half marathons and after my Spartan Race. I tried to workout two days later and could barely do any of the moves. It was just silly.

The house is coming together nicely, though. It is older, but we like its quirks, and the backyard is simply amazing. This house will force us to be more social

Not moving after all (sort of)! | DJ | 1 Year Ago


Here I thought that we were going to move to a different city for sure as a result of my promotion, but not so fast! The Air Force made a surprise move and told us we'd be staying right where we are. However, in another surprise move, our landlords have told us to get out because they are selling the house we are renting. So we're not moving, but we are moving! We were thinking about it anyway, but this made that choice for us. There are pros and cons to all of this of course. We were in some w

I'm being promoted! | DJ | 1 Year Ago


After months of waiting, I found out a week ago that I am indeed being promoted to the rank of Senior Master Sergeant (SMSgt). This is a big deal in the Air Force because only 2% of the Enlisted force is allowed to be at that rank at any one time. It is probably the hardest rank to make. The promotion rate was only 11% across the Air Force, and only 10% in my career field. I am super stoked about this, even if it does mean we are probably going to move as a result, to either the Washington DC ar

Promotion news soon | DJ | 1 Year Ago


We're probably around 11-12 days until I find out if I am getting promoted and having my life turned upside down again in a few short months. That is the big downside of Air Force promotions - you have to wait so long to find out about them. That long build up increases the emotional stakes and makes the joy that much more intense if you make it, but also the crushing disappointment is more acute when you don't.

Three days ago was my 21 year anniversary with the Air Force. If I don'

New Year New Challenges | DJ | 1 Year Ago


Another year has come and gone. 2017 was an interesting year - it alternated between frustrating and challenging and pretty sweet. It had some tough times and some great times. Overall, though, it was way better than 2016! 2016 was our toughest year ever. This was kind of a rebound year. It got us back on track. It should be viewed as the springboard that will help make 2018 be the best year yet! We are so blessed and we have some big events ahead of us this year.

Flees.net has been updated! | DJ | 1 Year Ago


The Timeline page is active! It still needs to be updated with many of the events in our lives, but it is a start and I really like how the page turned out. The next public available item I'll be working on is TV show tracker. Not that I think anyone cares that much what we are watching - it is more for our reference, but why not let people see it, right?
