a triumphant return

Decided I should probably do an update since it’s been… two years!? since I last updated.  Well not to be too wordy, but here’s what’s changed in my life.

  1. I got married and am happily living with two crazy girls 
  2. I started back to the gym about a year ago and am working on a healthy lifestyle
  3. I stopped vaping completely
  4. I started building and flying UAV (drones)
  5. I started a new job and have been there for almost two years
  6. I am much happier than I ever thought possible

Now to dive into a couple of those points…  Last post I made here I was talking about cold feet and boy were they chili.  It has been a huge adjustment for me from living by myself to living with two people and learning to deal with their issues while they learned to deal with mine.  Sure, their have been some fights and disagreements, but when things are going well, it’s pretty amazing.  For our honeymoon, we took a trip down to St. Thomas and got a chance to enjoy the ocean and beautiful weather.  We went to an all inclusive resort and for the first day or so, we really tried to eat and drink our money back.  It was a great time and I can’t wait to return one day.

A little over a year ago we signed up for a gym membership at the local Y and our family has really tried to become the healthiest we can.  I’ve started lifting weights and cardio, while my wife has started exercise classes and has lost a ton of weight.  I haven’t lost weight, but I have bulked up and they say muscle weighs more than fat!  I still don’t always eat the healthiest, however I am adjusting that little by little.  My step daughter has also gotten into the swing of things by going with her mom to her classes and weight training when she goes with me.  I think that between the two of us, we should be able to keep that kid as healthy as an ox.

Stopped vaping about 7 months ago… Miss it almost every day :)

I was given a drone to play with on my first day at work and became hooked on it.  First day I flew it, I stuck it up in a tree, but live and learn!  Since then I have help produce several aerial videos and even built my own drone.  I got into racing and stunts with them shortly after learning to keep it in the air and not crash into a tree.  I have posted a couple of videos and hope you’ll check them out.  

Well I’m getting tired of writing for now, but perhaps I’ll work on the site a little more and post a bit more frequently!
