Welcome Home

Haven’t done much blogging at all this month. To be honest, it’s been a pretty rough month, but I’m looking forward to the new year. Immediately after Christmas Eve service Rachel and I left for San Diego to spend Christmas day with my family. We had a great time having our traditional Christmas breakfast and then opening gifts with my family.

That evening we went up to Big Bear to spend the next day or so with Rachel’s family. The day after Christmas served as the first day of snowboarding for the season. Unfortunately, there has been NO snow, so it was all man made. Not as bad as I was afraid it might be, though. Also, unfortunately, my body pretty much shut down after Christmas Eve and I was feeling pretty sick, so snow probably wasn’t the wisest remedy. It was a great time though and again enjoyed opening gifts again.

Finally we left Big Bear for Long Beach on Tuesday so that Rachel and I could leave for Catalina to get away on our own for a few days. That’s when I got a nice welcome home surprise. Some of you may remember when I first started blogging, I posted about my Jeep getting hit while parked on the street in front of our place. Well, in the hour I had before we left, I went to move my truck from the same spot my Jeep had been parked 8 months before, and you guessed it… hit again. The damage isn’t quite as bad, but then again, it’s a bigger truck. The car that hit me was apparently totaled. It crunched the back left side of the truck and pushed me ino the car ahead to add some nice front end damage.

I couldn’t help but laugh a little with the irony of the whole situation. So I moved the truck and took off for Catalina. I’ll deal with it when I get home.

I hope you all had a great Christmas and are ready for a Happy New Year. Hopefully as I get myself back together, I can start blogging a little more regularly again.
