The Last 6 months in reflection..

Well let me see been a long time since the last post so here goes me trying to remember all that's gone on.

I helped out more in church helped keep things running smoothly.

I started work at the end of July, it came at the right time... I work at Walmart - it's a job, it pays me money, I work hard at it..

I got to see where my wife grew up on our Wedding anniversary, got the week off work which was a total blessing, what wasn't a total blessing was a phone call from home about my mum who I knew was ill but just didn't know how ill until then, suspected cancer, later proven to be correct and stage 4, liver and a few other spots.

My wife and I's birthdays got celebrated it was fun, a day away from working.

October brought the warmer weather and a trip home to see my mum one last time, it was almost like she was waiting for us.. Also this month our church's Annual Missions Conference which I didn't get to much off due to work. Sunday's find me mostly working in the afternoon..

November brought the churches Annual Men's Conference, which went smoothly thanks to feedback from last year and me working some coding magic to make it go way smoother... Mum's cancer spread to her brain and she wasn't the same couldn't really speak with her as facts were getting mixed up enough more and it hurt.

So here we are in December, it's cold here now, not ice n snow cold but cold enough for a little frost, it's also the time my mum passed away, the cancer had gotten everywhere and finally got her...

As for the rest of the Month who knows.....
Next Year we shall see..

Green Card

Well what can I say, seeing as my 5 month paperwork shuffling exercise with the US government is over finally and I have my "Permanent Residency" card which I'm glad of, would hate to have to go back to the UK without my wife, my soulmate, my world, the one who can make me laugh, cry, be angry and make me smile all within minutes ;)

Wonder how many will noticed the change in the Blog Title ;)
Wonders how many just went to look at the Blog Title Now - lol....

Onward and upward going to get my SSN and then find work - need 1 to make sure I can get the other ;) then I can start paying Uncle Sam instead of Uncle Dave ;) < waits for the LOL from certain people.

That is all for now... Time to get back to my "Honey Do" list ;)

Do I miss home, now I'm no longer there, yes and no. Yes as I miss the snow, rain and ice. No because I hated not being able to get my car out of it's parking spot, driving in snow was ok, ice not so much, rain was fun but at least in the UK, they know for the most part how to drive in snow and rain. Here in Southern California, they don't know how to drive in the rain they still think they can do above the speed limit in it and break 20 ft from your bumper and still be able to stop, well they don't get enough rain to practice in to be honest. I can see snow capped mountains and that will do me for now.
Happy New Year to all my readers, yes I mean you and you and now that guy beside you as he looked interested ;)

Almost Christmas

Well it's almost Christmas, the whole reason for the season is almost upon us. Gifts are bought and wrapped under our little tree, wow there is something I thought I'd never have a tree to share with my soulmate.. Sure I miss my family back home but I have a new one starting here, growing in grace all the time.
I'd love to know where this year has went, especially this last month or so, I think I blinked and missed it..

Things I've managed to get done:
  • Get and put our tree up together
  • Buy and wrap gifts  for my sweetheart.
  • Get some not all of my Christmas cards out
  • Smile a lot and spend time with my sweetie.

Things I've not managed to get done:
  • Send out Christmas cards and gifts out to everyone I normally do by December 10th so they get them for sure. 
  • Get the time to fly home for Christmas
  • Do all the stuff I'd normally be doing at home around this time..

November 2nd

I figured I'd see who was still reading my blog.

I finally decided that I'd retire the old look and totally refresh the blog..

Now that I've gone and gotten that out the way on to the important stuff.

I am no longer writing this from Scotland but as they say you can take the boy out of Scotland but you can't take Scotland out the boy, that is so true.
I'm married to my lovely wonderful wife, hard to believe it will soon be 3 months.... Where the heck did the time go, mind you in saying that it's been a super fast year. I moved to here, got married, and now I'm just waiting on my paperwork to allow me to stay here permanently..
Pray I do.. I plan on writing more but well who knows..
