Quick Update

Sorry it’s been so long since I have posted but things have been pretty busy.  First our daughter Kat came to visit her sister in Charleston, and we got to meet her new significant other.  For those who are keeping track, Kat was married but last year she got divorced.  I generally don’t post about my kids’ lives as it is their business, but when it converges with the story narrative I need to give at least some background.  We really liked Adrian, and it was nice seeing all my kids in the same month.

From left: Me, Lee, Adrian, and Kat

As soon as Adrian and Kat left we left as well, and it was VERY difficult saying goodbye to Oliver, Kyrston, and Jeremy.  My only solace was Lee and Kyrston worked out how to Skype and how she could point a camera at the baby, so most mornings we wake up to some Oliver TV.  Here are a few pictures of the last couple of weeks we were together.

We got to feed the baby before w left. He just started solid foods and sleeping through the night

 

Jack’s not sure about the Johnny Jump up but Oliver loves it. If you ever want to buy a baby present this is a MUST have. He will spend up to an hour jumping and laughing and gives his mom a nice break

 

The last day he came to visit was super sad.

 

But we figured out a place to put the baby on our travels so we were all set 🙂

 

Jack was licking him goodbye

 

I loved that they both stuck out their tongues at the same time

The only good part of leaving was we were headed back to San Antonio to see Greg, Cori, Kelly, and Bill.  As much as Jack likes Finn he missed Hobie, and they fell back into the swing of things immediately.  Bill and Kelly also got a new kitten, Simba, and Jack and he were getting used to each other.  We had a great fire one night and as much as I miss Ollie it was great to be back with friends.

I bought the same food that Hobie eats so they can share a bowl now

 

Simba is a cutie

 

One more thing.  My diet has been going well, and since December 1st I have lost 8 pounds.  I am doing this by tracking my calories and sticking to 1500 a day.  This is helping me lose around one pound a week and I am pretty satisfied as long as I eat moderately throughout the day.  The few times I have splurged and tried to make it back up I regretted it.

Since there is no workout facility close to where we are staying I decided to try a couple of at home options.  From Target I purchased an inexpensive jump rope and I also bought a Simply Fit Board which is surprisingly inexpensive and fun.  It’s harder to be on a schedule with these home items but I need to build some time into my routine.

Just like the jump ropes in elementary school

 

This was a Shark Tank item and only $20. That’s a steal in my mind. Target had them in a display that I was able to try out.

 

Twisting…shake it shake it shake it baby!

 

The best exercise though is hiking and we were able to squeeze in a long awaited hike to Hamilton Pool.  I’ll share that experience with you next time.

Oh, and one last thing.  People want to know how the job is going and the short answer is: great.  I have a project going live today and another on Thursday.  It feels great to be doing what I love again and being fairly compensated for it.

  4. While looking at your pictures, I noticed your door. Did it come on the Open Range or did you replace the original with this? We have the typical door/screen door combo and I don’t like it. I’d love to have a door with a window that opens.
