tap tap, is this thing on?

Well ... it's been almost four years since I've written an entry. Sad, shocking, and amazingly interesting considering how much ahs gone on in life since August of 2008.

I'm now married, live in a house--have been for almost three years almost, and have been working at DLA for near on the exact amount of time since this last post, four years. It's quite funny that full college degrees could be earned in the time it ahs been since my last post. Oh well, all I must do is write as if I haven't written before.

I've been more active socially on the internet lately as I discovered my Twitter account which I created in ... you guessed it 2008, near the beginning of the twittervers. It's weird not having to limit myself to 140 characters. It's interesting to me that I have embraced Twitter as most of my previous livejournal entries average 500 words or more. But life is a maze of inconsistencies and oxymorons isn't it?

Julian, my son, is now two. He's saying all kinds of crazy things, and from what I understand, taking crazy pictures of me with my Holly's iPhone. Apparently, he camera caught me with peanut butter slimed sunglasses which he'd given me to wear, and I didn't even know it. Guess I missed the camera flash. I had a smile on my face, a can of Dr. Pepper in my hand, and Julian had introduced some artsy blurriness, making me look ultra cool. See and be amazed. Facebook seems to like it, and my son is becoming a new photographer apparently.

It continues to be really hot here with temps in the upper 90s with heat indices even higher. There are sporadic power outages around, some caused by the storms we had this weekend, some unexplained. I worked from home today, and at about 0900 (9:00 A.M.) the person I am Training told me that the power at the office was out. Apparently it was base wide, and for those who weren't scheduled to telework and were at the office, the base closed. I wasn't scheduled to telework, but I was teleworking, so I figuratively stared at a blank work computer screen all day as my support staff weren't there and work was a bit on the lacking side. I'm not complaining, it's been almost four years since I've been in this position, so am enjoying a bit of a break. I read some scientific articles on random things, checked out some AT related podcasts, and thought up ideas for articles and/or publications I could participate in. Not particularly exciting, but ... so goes my new life as a married father of one.

And that's about all I can think of to write about at the moment. 30% chance of rain tonight which this probability has spelled really big storms the past couple of days. Who knows. Time for mindlessness and/or listening to Julian jabber. Both passtimes are enjoyable, except for when he growls at random times and for no reason. No Julian, I don't want your half-eaten peanut butter sandwich thank you. Yummmmm.

    The plan is to go to the beach this afternoon, but I'm not sure when. We don't have too much special planned besides that, but it's the last full day…
