Well it has been a long time since I wrote anything in this weblog....I attempted to about 3 weeks ago, and actually I wrote a lot, but the server crashed and I was not about to write that much again. Well, things are going amazingly well for me here in lil ole Kentucky. My lady and I are getting married in less than 2 months, she got a new job and a pay raise, the boys are doing well, its summer time, and we have been getting along superbly. How could things get any better? I got a NEW JOB! I was picked to work in the Governor's Office of Technology as a Resource Management Analyst II. What exactly a Resource Management Analyst II does in comparison to a Resource Management Analyst I I don't know.....hell....I don't even know what I am going to be doing. All I know is that I will be making sure that a software program runs smoothly that handles accounts payable and receivable, and keeps up with comp time. I am a little nervous as I have no formal computer training, but I do have a fascination with computers, software, and technology that is boundless. When I got word of the job I was ready for salary arbitration and what not, but it did not go as I expected it to. I came up with a figure that was approximately 10% more than what I make now. The guy dismissed that figure and gave me the number that he was GOING to pay me....about 22% more than what I make now. I tried to maintain the poker face, but I know my expression looked just like "Shaggy" off of Scooby Doo when he says, "ZOIKS!" So, all is well. My family is doing well, Carolyn just got back from Germany yesterday, Neekie is doing fine like she always does, and I can't complain about much of anything. Oh damn....how could I forget...Robbie is calling me "Daddy" now. Isn't that the coolest/scariest thing that you have ever heard? I was more than flattered...it met with a little hesitation on the part of his biological, but all of that is straightened out now. I am so happy, yet I am concerned about how I carry myself around him and his brother. I remember being the little guy that wanted to emulate everything that I saw "Daddy" doing. I just want to be a positive role model.....well, 2 months and I will be a married man....I cannot wait.
