You're 30? Seriously?

Yes, I am 30, and I gotta tell ya... not much different then being 16, mentally.

You feel me on that dad?

Dad actually had a pretty good quote he told me on my birthday that sums up my life about as good as you can in one sentence. "Aging is not an option, but maturing is".

It's been awhile since I've updated by blog, but it's been a whirlwind ever since we moved into the house. I've been working nonstop on pretty much everything you could imagine. Not to mention, I've got a brand new job that I'm still getting used to. But, as far as jobs go, this one is definitely one of the best. I love going to work. I love being at work. I like every single thing about my new job, even the stuff that I shouldn't like. It's the perfect fit for me, and for the first time in my life, I feel like I could stay at that company till retirement.

Onto the house. Since September 1st, my new full-time job title has been "Head Groundsman". My main purpose everyday was to keep the sod adequately watered. Not much fun. At all. But, here we are, 4 weeks later, and the sod is green, and only requires water once every other day. Mission accomplished.

I've also managed to paint and clear coat my garage floor, install wall organizers, install a slick new mailbox, paint my basement floor, drywall 1,000 sq ft in the basement, hang all the blinds, put together misc shelves and about a million other things that a new house requires.

Pictures to follow sometime when I'm not buried in a pile of drywall dust.

Which is about to happen in 5... 4... 3... 2...
