The end of the old year, the beginning of the new...

I hope everyone had a great Christmas.  Other than working on mine it was great.  It has been years since I have been able to spend it with the family.

I was surprised that our tree didn't end up like the one to the left.  We had the 'boys' in the house and they like to explore.

This year has been a wild and bumpy ride.  There have been huge changes with the family situation but all is well in that department.

The wife, kiddos and critters are now back on the homestead in Eastern Texas.  I have to say that when we moved everyone back down there, it felt like 'home'.  I am still working for now up here in Oklahoma until we get a few things taken care of.  Since I work 6 on 3 off I will be going home on my days off.  The way I see it right now its more or less like when I was driving over the road and was home every week or two.  Eventually, withing the next 6 months or so I plan on finding something a little closer to home so I can stay there.

I hope everyone has a great New Year!!

A White Christmas?

I will let my friend to the right keep the snow if he wants it.  In my line of work it just makes working outside that much more 'fun' lol.

So how many are hoping for a White Christmas?  I have tried to look at the extended forecasts but it seems to change every day.

I swear, the 'voodoo witch-doctor forecasters' as I affectionately call them can't seem to get it nailed down.

There are times when the Farmers Almanac is a lot more accurate, not to mention the old timers in your area.
This Christmas looks like it will be a very good one for the family this year.  I know the boys can't wait to open gifts, they have been asking each day if they can just open 'one' gift.  To say they are excited is an understatement lol.

So how has your Christmas been shaping up?

Round 2......

Well this weekend was a lot of fun.  We had family and friends down for Thanksgiving and a Wedding on Saturday.

I have to say it did get interesting for a little while.  I got called out on a job at 11 pm the night before which put me in jeopardy in not getting back in time.  Where I work I technically don't go on days off til 8 am in the morning so I had to go out.  The company was good though and they got a relief driver out to where I was at as soon as he was available so I was able to rush back in time to get ready.

We had a late Thanksgiving lunch, then afterwards a short and sweet to the point wedding.

The reason the title above says Round 2 is that this is the second time Jennifer and I have gotten married to each other.  We were married the first time, (in Vegas which was interesting) in 2001.  Unfortunately we went our separate ways a few years later, but I think we both had some growing we had to do.  We both agree that we don't ever want to go through anything like this again so we are stuck with each other lol.

We are a pretty good fit for each other, she is very independent, loves to garden and just comes up with all sorts of cool little projects to do around the house.  She loves to play in the dirt but can get all prettied up in no time flat.  We both want to be more self sufficient in life and now we can help each other work towards that.

Well that's all for now, chat with everyone later.
