Ok, I haven't had much to say lately—haven't really
been spending much time doing anything worthwhile
on the 'net lately. Anyway, here's what's going on
with me in a nutshell:
Still trying to find work. I'm hoping to hear
something this week back on a possible contract.
If I get this contract, it'll be a huge
weight off my shoulders.
Played golf w/my dad on August 28th at Longaberger—one of
the countries best public golf courses. This
was the first day of some stomach virus I had.
I enjoyed the golf course—but was really
feeling crappy all day.
I was sick over Labor Day Weekend—that really
stunk. Jenn & I were sick together, but that
meant we missed my family "get together" for
Labor Day—which is where we celebrate Labor Day
along with my parent's Anniversay, my cousin Stef
& Scot's anniversary and my grandfather's
birthday (my mom's dad.) I was really dissappointed
to miss seeing the family.
I went out dinner w/my parent's on their 35th
Anniversary on September 3rd. My mom came to town
to finally use the Kenneth's Spa certificate I
bought her last year for her birthday. My dad
and I had planned to play golf, but it was overcast
and with being sick, we decided it was best to
just skip it. I was really glad to be able to eat
dinner with them since I had missed the Labor Day
cookout. We ate at La Scalia's on RT161 up in Dublin.
The weekend of the 7th, Jenn & I went up to Niles to
celebrate her sister's birthday and her parent's
31st anniversary. It's funny, her parent's anniversary
is like 10 days after my parent's and her birthday
is like 10 days before mine. Our families seem to have
a lot important dates right around the same time.
We also went w/her parent's to an R/V show. They ended
up buying a really nice 27' R/V. They do a lot of
camping and travelling and I think they'll really enjoy
what they bought.
I've been playing bass pretty frequently as of late.
We practice the other day and have a few tryouts
for a drummer in the comming weeks—the first
tryout is this Friday (9/19/2003.)
Maddie broke out in hives once on Friday night and
once on Saturday morning. We ended up taking her to
the Vets to get some shots to take down the swelling.
She looked really bad Friday morning. We're still
unsure to what caused it, but the mosquitos have
been extremely bad lately—so that's a definite
suspect. (The mosquitos have been eating me alive
as of late. I've got bug bits all over the place.)
Finally got together with Todd, Monica and Nicholas
to give Nicholas his birthday presents. I've said
this before, but Nicholas is great. Todd &
Monica are really doing a great job. Nicholas is
also the first fan of our band. Whenever we get
to the bridge of The Beatle's "Getting Better"
he smiles real big and starts dancing—like
only a 12 month old can. :)
Ok, that's about it. I promise I'll try to get back
to updating my blog more regularly!
