Infinitesimal Spark

So, much thanks to my brother Doug today...he help to reignite the desire within to write again. Now I finally feel that I can begin writing again. This is usually the time of the year that I write...I just need to get work to not dominate my entire life and I should be good to go.

Our little boy Taylor is continuing to grow healthy and strong. He is quite the mover which makes his mother happy. I have started a routine of reading "The Princess Bride" every night to Debbie and Taylor...I think it puts Debbie to sleep, but I am hopeful that he is listening. Debbie is doing well...though her nerve pain is still kicking her butt...no pun intended. She is happier than I have ever seen her.

I have been told that I am a bit pointed at times in my blogs...all I can say is that is the way I roll. There have been times that the wife has read it and asked me to change it. I do not intend to offend...just express my opinion. Needless to say, I will not change my style. :)

Battlestar Galactica is down to the final four episodes and I am a little bummed, but at least it has been good. I am looking forward to playing the BSG board game some time soon if the owner of said game will still teach it to me.

Finally, I sincerely hope that all of you are well during these difficult financial times. Unfortunately it will get worse, but our perspective will allow us to see the good admist the bad. I hope that my next posting will have a real update on my book...it is something I feel strongly that I need to finish this book and get the this work published.

Also, I know that some have asked to add their blog to my listing and I am happy to do it...just let me know. Pictures is another common request...while my beauty is too great to be captured in a picture, I will try to add some pictures.

February Update

Well, January flew by...now Debbie will be 21 weeks this week and I have been able to feel Taylor moving. I know that I play things pretty close to the chest when it is personal, but I am just excited to see my little boy progressing. Debbie is glowing and happy...especially since our bathrooms are finished. To that point, many thanks be to Gary and Heather for basically doing this project.

One thing I learned through this process is that I have an unusual habit of hurting myself this time of year...hopefully this time it is not too bad. I have also had many people ask me about my book...I really want to get this project going again. I am at a point that I need some inspiration or some time to relax to get my mind into creative mode. Since work has been dominating my time, that has been difficult. Hopefully the 3 day weekend will help.

BSG...for those who are not in the know that mean "Battlestar Galactica"...the series remaining episodes have been amazing. Now that we have HD, it is even better. I appreciate my wife being so tolerant of this addiction. I have converted two guys from work, so I at least have some fellow enthusiasts to share in the joys of BSG while it lasts.

Hopefully all of you are well and unaffected by this difficult economy. I feel gratitude for being employed and for still having a calling with the youth in our ward. They help me to feel young despite what my body is trying to tell me. Yes, my wife would say that I have an age complex. I admit that I do, but I am working on it. Hopefully you all make the most of this February and guys, don't forget Valentine's Day.
