Yeah, we're nuts! | DJ | 6 Years Ago

In case you didn't know, Kelley and I get up between 4:15 and 4:45 every weekday morning and start working out by 5:15. On the weekends we get up later - maybe as late as 6:30, and we run 3-5 miles each day (weather allowing). We ran our first 10k a few weeks ago, and we'll run our second in 2 1/2 weeks. We are in the best shape that we have been in many years and it feels great! Life might be super busy and there never feels like there is enough time in the day, but working out is worth it and

So Much Going On! | DJ | 6 Years Ago

Kelley went home for a visit for her birthday this weekend and went to the regular season Ohio State basketball finale and watched them crush Wisconsin. She had a great time, but I am very glad she will be in home in a couple hours.

I take my promotion test for Master Sergeant tomorrow morning - good luck to me! I also just bought a car a week ago - a 2011 Chevy Malibu - it is super nice.

Kelley are both doing great on fitness and health, and this Saturday we are both r

DJ Returns Home | Kelley | 6 Years Ago

DJ received a distinguished graduate honor at NCOA. He is leaving Tennessee today to return home to Augusta. He is certainly ready to spend time with his wife. We are curious about what the rest of 2011 will turn out, but we plan on taking it one day at a time. We do not know the future, but we know the one who does and that is all we need to know.

My NCOA Experience - Part 1 | DJ | 6 Years Ago

I left for the Non-Commissioned Officer Academy (NCOA) on the morning of Monday, January 3rd. The Academy is co-located with the Knoxville airport in Alcoa, Tennessee, about 10 minutes south of Knoxville. I left home around 9:30am and heading north through rural South Carolina. I immediately felt like I had gone through a time machine into the 80s. For over 2 hours I saw very little civilization, and most gas stations were one pump affairs with the old spinning analog number dial. I finally foun

Halfway there... almost | DJ | 6 Years Ago

Tomorrow mark 3 weeks until I graduate from the NCO Academy. This weekend mark the halfway point, and to celebrate I am coming home for the weekend. 11 hours of round trip driving is a small price to pay to see my awesome wife for a couple days. I very much look forward to the break from this place. It is stressful at times, and generally unfun as all military training environments tend to be.

2011 - Starts out with Separation | Kelley | 7 Years Ago

DJ will be leaving me on January 3rd for NCO Academy in Knoxville, Tennessee. He will be there for a total of 6 weeks. Thankfully, he will be able to come back and visit. I will be responsible for our 4 furry babies which can sometimes be a challenge. It is the cooking and cleaning that is even worse. DJ spoils me and I LOVE it that way. My employer will keep me busy in January. I am moving to a new off-site warehouse and there are many questions how this will change my job. I am so happy I love

The Game is tomorrow | DJ | 7 Years Ago

The annual Michigan vs. Ohio State match up happens again tomorrow. Once again, Michigan is given very little chance to win. Michigan can make its season tomorrow, or, regardless of the bowl result, have a slightly disappointing one. I just hope our offense has the ball with a chance to win late.
Kelley and I have been doing awesome in our fitness routine lately - I am nearly in the best shape of my life, or at least since I was 16. We have been running outside in 60+ degree weather

Big events around the corner | DJ | 7 Years Ago

Big news: I'll be going to the Air Force NCO Academy from January 4th until February 10th. It is at some AF National Guard base in Tennessee, around 6 hours from Augusta. I am not a fan of being away from Kelley and home for 6 weeks, but we knew this was coming eventually so why not get it over with.

I recently scored an 88.1 on my fitness test, a huge accomplishment considering I had never scored better than 79.5 before now. If I complete the 1.5 mile run 7 seconds faster and do

Good things must end eventually | DJ | 7 Years Ago

Michigan lost its first football game of the season today to its hated rival, Michigan State. That really stinks, but I knew Michigan was going to lose some games this year.

I won NCO of the Quarter for my squadron for the third quarter, 2010. I haven't done that since 2006, so that is pretty cool. I also weight the least that I have since near that same time. Good timing on that since my PT test is in a little over 2 weeks. Overall things are going well!

At least change is always constant | DJ | 7 Years Ago

Seems like out situation is constantly changing. Not always in bad ways, not even close, but in unexpected ways many times. Kelley has decided not to pursue her Masters degree after all. 3 years of misery is not her idea of a good time and I agree. We started a bowling league last night after 1 year off and I did terribly, but Kelley did well. I have a new computer on the way and I pretty stoked about it. I start teaching my first class all by myself in 2 weeks. Work is hectic, but not too bad.
