Blogger

Not digging the changes to blogger by Google. Gotta say if it ain't broke why fix it? I guess I will get used to it, but I doubt it will ever be as good as it once was. 

Ok, So I guess Google and Blogger don't work with the new IE. Way to stay up with the times Google. 

So,,,What's new with you?

 So what's new, been living in central Oregon for 3.5 years now, Just had our 2 year anniversary for buying our home. My youngest will soon be a teen, so scary. I feel so old.


 Work has been good, the company got bought out by a huge publicly owned company called TDS. The sale goes through tomorrow I believe. I am really excited about it. I think it will open a lot of doors for me and my co-workers. The benefits appear to be much better, and the company seems like a good place to work for.


 This past winter my wife was able to track down my father who I hadn't seen thence I was about 4 or 5. So we have met a few times, and we are slowly building a relationship. It is hard to have someone just pop back into your life and try to make up for 34 or so years. I am glad my son is getting to know him. I am not a real talkative person and not real emotional at times so it is hard for me to go through this but I am trying. I am having a hard time with the emotions. Part of me is very angry, part of me is I don't know what. Strange sight note, his wife is about 4 month older then I am. That is a bit weird.


 I am currently working on getting my ass back into school. I have completed some SCTE courses(it's a cable thing). I recently won a scholarship from them that is paying for me to take the CompTIA networking certification. It's a ton of info to get into my head in just 12 weeks. It's a online course which makes going back and reviewing material a pain. I am going to go back to college and work on a business degree next term. The new company has a amazing program to help it's employees go to school. It will probable take years and years. I will only be taking 1-2 courses a term, but am going to go year round. So hopefully one day I will have a degree and make something of my self.

One of these days,,,,,,

So I keep trying to be more active on this thing, but continue to find my self getting pulled in a million directions. The house I bought is always needing work, work of course is always pulling me. Family, kids are teens now,,,so scary. I will try to post at least once a month, that is my goal. Hopefully I can do more, but once a month is my goal.

LDS Temple in Mesa

Wife took me to this temple to walk around the grounds, very pretty place.
