Updates from Hazard, KY

It’s been quite some time since my last post, but much has happened in that time. By far the biggest news is Lilyana is now a year old and walking around, making life a whole lot more difficult for Jennifer and I. Unfortunately, she has inherited our penchant for wanting to examine everything we come across, only to discard once its use has been filled. I swear she moves from one thing to the next so quickly, it’s hard for us to keep up with her. We’re constantly taking stuff off her, only to have her fix her gaze on something else.  She certainly wears my patience thin at times, but I’m trying to learn how to be more patient, at least with her and Jennifer. Only Jennifer can tell you how well I’m faring in that pursuit.

It’s been a year already…

Midday yesterday marked the anniversary of our arrival here in KY and what an eventful year its been. I’ve been through several contracts.  Some lucrative, some not so lucrative. My first child (hopefully not the last) was born. Our car has broken down a half dozen times, as well as a computer crapping out completely.

New work possibilities

Well, in the last week things have changed a little as far as work prospects go. Last Sunday, I went bowling and for the first time in a long time, the owner, Fred, was working the counter.  What’s more, Jennifer had dropped me off to go and get in the tanning bed for a little while, which meant I was there by myself to bowl for an hour, after which I would just wait until Jennifer came back from the tanning salon.
