Back in town? Yes, I've been back a while, but I should probably say 'we' because I am now no longer myself, but us. It is still going to require much adjustment but I'm confident that given enough time I'll prove a very good disciple of all that my parents have taught me about oneness. It's hard to believe that it has now been two months since our return but given our pace of life as of late we haven't been able to get out as much. We've watched my brother marry, married ourselves a few weeks later, and will soon find ourselves in Texas for Thanksgiving to visit my sister.
I've been working towards a new job and career in the military but that will require another post to explain in full. Besides, most people have been out of the loop for most of the time I was in Korea, and that was about 26 months of sequential non-communication, it's a wonder you even recognize my name on a sheet of paper. After a couple months I hope to have already begun the military journey and have stories to tell, hopefully all good ones. The future is mostly what we make of it so I don't expect to have many bad stories about these would-be experiences. That's not really how I've lived in the past and not how I plan to live in the future.
Today I have the honor of accompanying my wife and mother to an old friend's house to help, or just sit, while they cut fabric in preparation for a new quilting project they will complete "as a family". It's really quite cute, and if you could see how excited everyone is then I can assure you that you would be supportive no matter the boredom our family suffers as a result. Haha. I am a supportive husband. I'm learning.
I'm back in town, and so is they wifey, and if we love you, or if I loved you when I was just myself I can assure you that I still love you every bit as much as I used to... I just haven't been able to extend my arms that far yet since they have been so needed at home. You wouldn't believe the projects I've been involved in since our return! I've been a cleaning and remodeling madman. I helped re-roof our house, or at least half of it this past weekend and feel like a piece of meat under the tenderizing hammer of doom. I don't really think I mean doom, I really think it's good since I need to be in shape. To all of our mutual friends, we love you and hope to see you soon, either by accident or on purpose. Both would be good but the latter would be better!
