Finally back after a looong absence October 29, 2013Posted by tantamergo in Admin, awesomeness, Basics, fun, silliness.
Sorry, folks, I think this latest break is the longest I’ve ever taken in the four year history of this blog. Even when I go on vacation, I usually try to sneak in a post or two, but this time I was waaay to busy to do so. But, I had a good reason. We moved! We now live about 5 minutes from Mater Dei in Irving. On the converse, the 5 minute commute to work I’ve enjoyed for the past 15 years is now a 30 minute commute, but I was happy to take one for the team on that front. We’ve gone through most of the excrutiating part of packing up 16 years of living and all the stuff people with numerous habits, interests, and kids tend to acquire (including two storage units) and have gotten a pretty good start at settling into our new home. My wife and daughters are facing the thankless task of cleaning our old house.
I am of course also behind in just about every other aspect of my life, but I hope to get some blogs out today! I have to say, I feel I’ve worked harder, physically, with this move than I have………..since the last one! Or at least since we were doing some huge landscaping projects on our old house about 10 years ago. It’s been a while. It was actually beneficial, in a sense, I really needed some time to decompress from the stress of selling and buying a house, the job, the status of the Church, our challenging Holy Father, etc., and just focus on something entirely different while getting some heavy exercise in, which I did. I feel very good today, better than I have in quite some time. It was awesome spending the past 10 days with the kids, actually working together. That was the best part.
Anyway, I should have some non self-indulgent posts out in a bit.
