New news, news, and not so new news | DJ | 1 Year Ago


Lots of things going on...
Kelley's new job moved us to Peoria, Illinois about a month ago. Our house is big and sweet and mostly set up and unpacked now. The town is small with virtually no traffic which is a nice change from San Antonio. The only thing I don't like about the change is that I miss our pool. I loved having a pool. Maybe we'll have one someday again, but it is going to be a minute. Peoria overall is great, and I think we'll be happy here.

That job I had lined

Job, Job, Job - Wait, Wait, Wait | Kelley | 1 Year Ago


The process of searching for a job has been a challenge. I continue to challenge myself to stay positive during the journey. Our family has been focused on doing all we can to prepare for a possible move. It is the emotional journey that takes a toll. It can be very stressful. It is very important for me to be smart with my next job selection. The hope is that situations align so that the choice is made for me. Someday, my next job search will be over. Until then, I continue to press on with sch

Intermission | DJ | 1 Year Ago


My retirement ceremony has come and gone - hard to believe it was already 5 weeks ago! I might get pictures up someday. More importantly, I have a job lined up at Liberty Mutual starting on January 3rd and until then I get to just chill, which is beyond amazing. I'll be doing a lot of work on The Awesome Theory Idle game that I am making as well as chores and projects around the house.

It has been a very eventful six months since I last posted an update and the next few months ar

I am back baby! | Kelley | 2 Years Ago


The past two years took a hit to many people. We are all dealing with our own situations. I certainly struggled, but I am glad to share that I am back more like my normal self. I am working out and have that extra motivation to do more than eat, work, and sleep. Not every day will go smoothly. The key is to not let life control you. It takes a fight to live your life and be a blessing to others.

My Military career is coming to an end | DJ | 2 Years Ago


Where does the time go? We've been in San Antonio for nearly 3 years and it is nearly time for me to retire from the military and transition into a new career elsewhere. This is a little daunting, as my last non-military job was at McDonald's 26 years ago.

Fortunately, the military has a program called Skillbridge which allows me to intern for a company for a while before I get out while still being paid by the military. In the coming weeks, I'll be doing interviews and I should

We're still here | DJ | 2 Years Ago


It has been 15 months since I posted anything here, but the site is still alive and so are we. I have two main excuses for the long absence: first, college - I just finished up my Master's Degree and so that is out of the way, but it did mentally exhaust me for a long time. Second, I am finally getting back to working on The Awesome Theory, this time as a web-based idle RPG game. You can check it out via the Awesome Theory link at the top of the page - it is not near release-ready yet, but I've

RIP, Dad | DJ | 3 Years 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 | 4 Years 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 | 4 Years 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
