I am Back

Recently, I received an email from a friend of mine that told me that my blog had been deleted because I haven't posted in so long. It made me feel bad. I went back and read old posts that I have written and enjoyed it thoroughly, especially people's comments. So, I have decided once and for all, I am back. I will catch you up on the happenings in my life.

Our daughter Kate is now 4 months old - I am absolutely in awe of her every day. She had a very rough patch for awhile with cholic and some teething, but she seems to be done with that and is an absolute joy to have in our home. She is Julia's twin at this age, big beautiful blue eyes and an infectious smile.

I attended my mother's wedding over the weekend. I am not going to lie, it is a weird feeling seeing your parents married to other people. My Dad was remarried to Denise almost a year ago and my Mom was married to Kent this weekend. I had mixed emotions at both weddings - but, the overriding feeling that I have was one of gratitude that each of them found somebody that they love and can spend their lives and beyond with. It was a fun weekend to meet some of Kent's family and to see my Ted and Barbara, Uncle Greg and Aunt Jane, Uncle Larry and Aunt Jynene, Shannon, Angela and all of the family that came to see the blessed event.

I just concluded high school basketball season - for those of you that don't know, I officiate high school basketball. It is a passion of mine - I know that sounds weird, but I love to ref basketball. My dream job would be to ref college basketball. It keeps me close to a game that I absolutely love. I also took a job once a week reffing city league games at the club where Michelle has taught for several years - now, we are both employed by the same company. That's kind of fun.

Spring Training is upon us! I love Major League Baseball more than anything. I think the D-Backs could have a great year and I look forward to watching about 160 games over the next 5 months. (Love you Michelle :) )

For those of you that don't know, I am an avid Jim Rome fan - I am a clone. My emails are regularly read. Recently, I had an email that I wrote about Tiger Woods and his recent problems with so-called 'sex-addiction' win the Huge Email of the Day. Proud, proud moment in my life. :)

Until my next post . . .
