Not Much Happens Here...

Well, the move to Homer has been made. So far, it’s pretty good. I could do without the commute and the trains, but all in all, I could definitely learn to like it here. It’s peaceful and tranquil (save for the trains) and perfect for kids. Not just our kids, but ANY kids. Things look to be good.

As a side effect, moving into and getting the house set up has wound Heather and I up pretty tight. Overall, things are good, but edgy. I have no doubt that we’ll work it out though. We haven’t been married for 13+ years for nothing.

On the gaming front, I got back into my every-other Tuesday game the other night. Not bad, but I was anxious and it showed in how I played. My Feng Shui game is set to run this upcoming Wednesday at the pancake house. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to keep that up before having to move either the meeting place or the day we get together. It takes me about 35 minutes to make the drive at the speed limit, and I find myself not speeding during dark as I have NO idea where the county Mounties like to hide on my route home. During the day, I usually exceed the speed limit by 10 MPH or so since I can frequently spy the hiding spots out as I drive.

Beyond that, not much is going on. Heather and the kids got me the new Mudvayne CD (Lost and Found) for my birthday, and it kicks serious boo-tay!

That’s it for now. Not much to say, but not much happens in a town of 1200 people.

No... No You're Not...

Wow… I just realized that I haven’t blogged or almost two months. It’s not for lack of anything to talk about, just been busy dealing with the buying of the new house. Speaking of which, we closed on the 8th, so the thing is all ours, which brings me to the main point of this entry.

As a person grows older they reach points in their lives when they feel ready for certain milestones. Things like, “I’m ready to be married”, or “I’m ready to be a parent”, or my most recent discovery, “I’m ready to be a homeowner”. These are great thoughts on life and show an increasing maturity about how things work. These statements are also among the biggest lies you can ever tell yourself.

Let me put this as plainly as I can. A person can feel as ready and as prepared for each of these milestones of life as they like. They can read all the books, solicit all the advice, and ponder all the whys and wherefores that they like. The reality of it is, a person is “ready” for one of these events all the way up until the moment it occurs. Then, things go to Hell…

Just a thought to chew on folks…

peace… RHM
