At Least I'm Consistent!

I'm not surprised that it's been just over 6 months since my last post. I've been a busy guy. Since June we're down a gecko (went back to sis-in-law), Mandy has graduated college (yay!), and my brother just had his second kid (welcome to the world, Milo!).
After learning today about the 2nd celebrity death this year (Alan Rickman, following in the footsteps of David Bowie), I've realized I need to get things in gear. As of this morning I've given up all dairy and eggs. It's possibly been affecting my health a wee bit. I'm also doing my 3rd edit of my sci-fi novel in hopes of entering it in an upcoming contest this April. That and Mandy & I are dieting and working out to better ourselves, and to keep up with our kids.
I'd like to keep busy with writing, but I also need to focus on our home. We want to fix the cosmetics and list it for sale so we can relocate to La Crescent. That means many long nights and weekends getting projects that were started back before Noah was born (shush! I know how long ago that was!) done with. Wish us luck! I'll try to stay semi-consistent with this, but as the past has shown...
