My sun

It has been well over a year since my last post and I am proud to say I've actually been pretty busy. I've been to a hand full of countries and I've experienced some very great things, however I have also come across my share of gruesome things. I have seen death in a manor in which no one should ever have to see it. I am proud to say that although I have grown I have not changed. I have been able to share these events in my life with friends and family, and even though they are wonderful and terrible things they do not define who I am. This may bring up a question for you. What does define me? Well I'm inclined to say that my motivation and ethics define me as a person. This is the case to an extent, but to really get a good definition of who I am and how I came to be the person that I am you must look to my beloved wife. She is quiet literally the sun in my sky. I would not be where I am today with out her loving insight and thoughtful words of advice. She is my best friend, my spouse, my lover, my adviser, and my favorite cook. She really is the full package and I am proud to call her my own.

I write in this blog so I can look back and remind myself how my life used to be and see what changes have happened. I'm happy to look back on it and see that not much has changed in my life besides location. I will hopefully be writing more often for other purposes and to tell some stories and to express myself.

Another Beginning

Well, my life in the army is on its way now. I finish processing at my first duty station this week.

I am happy. I miss my wife, but she will be here soon. I just have to remind myself sometimes. I am pretty much lost without her, I love her alot.

I am excited to get out and get some books I havnt read anything in months I want something fun, any ideas?

Day before the last

I've packed a lot today. Delaying a lot. Read some, relaxed a lot. My box taping skills are so good it is embarrassing.

I think this feeling is nervous. I've never really been nervous before so I don't know for sure. It is kind of a mix between feeling stupid and reluctant.

I'm excited. I wish I knew more. Only time will tell.

If you don't already know me. Here I am;

I do not give up.
I do not quit.
I don't even know how.
I would sooner have my body give out from under me than quit.

I love you HAHA!!1

We are going to live a great life. It won't always be easy, it won't always be exactly what we want, but it will be great. I promise you that.

I have.

I have the most amazing person, and she doesn't know how amazing she is.

I have taken the thought seriously, and as much as I'd like to say yes... Its better for you if I say no.

Better for your future, better for our future, easier.

I won't say no, I'll say stay. I'll say wait and see what happens and where we are when it is possible, but I still think its better for you in the long run to finish.

Rock on!

Free Free Free.  You will never know how much you love the sun and the shitty great food your mom serves until its ripped away.  

Today was my first day back at work.  It went very well.  Did some beautiful work and the day flashed before my eyes, Easy money.   

I'm relatively calmer now-a-days.  I like to think that I'm not thinking any slower, but alot smarter.  I'm becoming pacient and thorough instead of quick and reckess... but I won't say there isn't and of that stregth and agility left.  I've just learned to use it.

I've also learned how much I enjoy the people around me, how much they mean, and how much I love them.   My family, my friends.

Lesson of the day:
You can only fix a bead of caulking once, you can't go back.

Today was a normal work day. I manufactured my first solo chip repair. I have decided the people that sell the kits to do such repairs are bastards. The device is small, perhaps a quarter pound of metal and the liquids involved are also quite small in amount. However the quarter pound of metal cost our business 700 dollars back in 1998 and now they won't even sell us the damn things, you have to lease them monthly. It is a complete farce. A person could buy one for a reasonable amount and fix his, his friend's, his family's and his neighbor's windshields with a single bottle of each chemical, but I guess if we were able to do such things they wouldn't be making any money.

I haven’t eaten supper yet and I'm quite hungry.

Lesson of the day:
Don't hover and help. Help, but don't hover.

Goals for myself:
Gather more information.
