Default Catching you up on how I've been

I thought there might be a few people interested in knowing how things have been recently. First off, yesterday Abigail was born. I'll try to get a picture later. Everything is great. My wife delivered with no medications this time. She was determined to at least try.

I've been working for APX Alarm, installing and servicing alarm systems. I'm getting better and quicker as I gain experience. I am still learning something new everyday on ways to improve my work. It's a good job. Most importantly, I get paid very well for it.

We've moved to Apex, NC. Officially as of yesterday, though I have been here myself for a month. We're renting a three-bedroom trailer until we can get our house sold in Winston-Salem. I hate it, but I am still paying for it and this place at the same time. My wife's last day of work was Friday so now everything is on me.

I've not played an RPG in so long. I miss it. My work keeps me busy a lot. However, I have recently been interested in Naruto shows and am watching them online. Before that, I had been watching Bleach until the dubbed versions ran out. It is hard to watch a subbed show with so much action going on.

Once my life settles down, hopefully I will be able to participate more fully on IW. I still sneak in daily to read up on the newest posts, of course. I just don't take much time to speak up. I see that the loading problem we were complaining about months ago is still present.

Anyway, that's it for me. Time to get back to work, cleaning the place up for when the baby comes home tonight.

Wow! Congrats on so many fronts... but the most important one first! to the (once-again) new parents!

And congrats on the job and movement as well!

Lessee.... of the major stress factors in life, you've got the first four nailed (finance, work, family, personal concerns). Hmmm.... sounds like a disease, and the doctor's recommendation is some precautionary gaming....

Best of luck to the whole family!

Hi Larry! Wow so much has been going on for you and yours! Definitely post some pics of Abigail when you can, I'd love to see them! How are your other two daughters doing? Working for an alarm system company sounds spot on for you. I'll never forget your posts about your garden critters, and your sword LOL.

Some awesome man! Glad everything is working out! We all have hard times, but we always seem to get through them . Just gotta look at it like that, and know things will be better.

(As for RPG's.. Hell, I'm re-re-re-re-re x10000 playing Eye of the Beholder 1 and 2. LOVE it still). hehe.. Still a great game.
