Looking back since last November, I have had an unusually large amount of death to deal with in my life. My granny, several co-workers and their family, and a couple of people I went to high school with have all passed on in the last 8 or 9 months. I can’t say that it has been a pleasant experience, but I realize as I get older it will be something I deal with on a regular basis.

On a brighter note, I did get married last October and everything went very well. Sooz made it over from England and spent most of the week with us. Josh and Kym flew out from California and had a hellacious time getting here. Nikki, her mom, and Melissa drove down from New Jersey to join in as well. It was nice to have my closest friends and family there for a very important event in my life. Thank you all for being part of it.

Upon returning from our honeymoon, I began my assignment as the overnight assistant manager at my store. It was my third time working nights and I really enjoyed myself. I was not looking forward to it, but the staff I was in charge of was amazing. They worked miracles nightly to recover and stock the store. Heather, of course, hated me being on nights and I hated not being right there with her for the first 8 months of our marriage. We survived, and appreciate our quiet evenings together or just being in the same house. Unfortunately, for Heather, I refuse to share the bed.

Saturday will be my 10 year high school reunion. I can not believe how fast a decade went by. It’s mind blowing. I am very excited to see a lot of people I haven’t in the 4 years I’ve been gone from Bristol. I think it will be a great time.

4 years that I have been living in Jefferson City. I miss home sometimes, but I really like it here. It has become my home and I enjoy living here. It’s funny how you end up in places you didn’t imagine you would be in.

I’ll have to cut this one short, otherwise I will be late for work. Feedback on the new blog is always appreciated. Take care until next time!
