a new chapter begins

i know it has been a while and i am sure sorry for that. So much has happened. I moved from Oklahoma back to West Michigan. I was sad to leave there but knew it was the right thing to do.

After 9 months of bouncing of my apartment walls and unemployment, i landed a job at AVI Systems in Grand Rapids. I am a Design Engineer II and will be doing some project management as well. The company is A/V driven primary corporate, higher education and health care. We do digital media systems, teleconferencing, audio, video, and much more. I am very excited to be part of this company. Solid financially and management makes me a happy camper.

I will be updating on other things as time goes on. But for now, i will let you chew on that.

It has been a challenging week. Much going on at work. Work load increasing. Problems arising. people issues.

I am often reminded of how much God really loves us. I know that is a big leap. But i was walking today after a particularly difficult morning. (i needed to take a walk). As i was out, a bird flew by and i am reminded that God takes care of the sparrow. This gave me the strength to once again engage and move thru the rest of the day.

In other news, I may be making a trip to MI soon. I will be this weekend making some arrangements and figuring out if i have enough money. It has been too long.

well i am looking for a relaxing weekend. enjoy yours!

My Daughter is a 10th Grader

I was thinking the other day - where does the time go? Becca is a sophomore. Ug. Getting ready to take drivers ed. I was speaking to Becca's mom the other day - planning out some upcoming things that need to be purchased. Wow, seems like things move too fast. Pictures, year books, clothes, braces - or now no braces - band camp, color guard, football games, i just cannot keep up.

But things are good in Grand Haven. Becca has a challenging year ahead. She has a few classes that are going to require some time reading. But she has her "game face" on and i think it will be ok.

One regret i have is i wished a was a bigger reader. I think i go thru spurts. I get interested then lose interest. then it comes over me again. I really am a fair weather reader.

I really think this is going to be a good year for Becca. I pray she stays focused and keeps moving.

Here in OKC, things are heating up. I recently accepted a promotion at work. I am still trying to figure out if it was a good thing or not. It is challenging. Some of the dynamics of my boss are very interesting to say the least. I have a good team here. We get lots of stuff done and time to play too. My boss is learning sometimes the hard way how to be a better businessman. Sometimes kicking and screaming but he is learning.

Still looking for a church. I have been hanging at one for several months now. Still not connecting very well. I think the teaching is good and the worship style is close to mine but i have not locked in just yet. Going to give it a few more tries though.

I am hopeful i will be traveling back to michigan soon. Catch up with friends and family. I miss them so. Next round i need to catch up with my nephews while i am there. Man, talk about growing up. I want them on Facebook. Reminds me just how much older i am now.

Weight loss update. slowed way down. Could be because i am not taking enough time to do it. Ug. need to get back on that pony and ride!

Well, keep reading.

C of the C squared.

wow has it been this long?

it is june and things are going aok. I recently have been on a facebook craze. too addicting i must say. It is getting hot here now and summer is right around the corner.

The becca arrives next week! booyah. i cannot wait. it was been a moth since i have seen her. it will be good. She made Color Guard again for next year, so the summer for her will be full.

I have worked out a way to work here for 6 weeks and go to Michigan for 2. i am geeked about that so i can see family and friends in michigan more often.

Well it is storming pretty bad out and i need to hit the sack.

Good night
