Too Little Time

Hello to all of my [3] readers that I have left hanging for months now without any posts. Life has been very busy handing me out items that usually consume more time than what I have.

I am not one to make excuses so I'll just cut right to the quick of what's been going on-

-Back on March 18th my wife and I welcomed the birth of our 3rd child, Murray James. He's now 2 months old and getting bigger by the day. So that ups the Whitehead clan to 5 with more to come in the future.

-Custom Computer Works is still alive and serving. Still no sign of it ever becoming anything more than just a hobby job for me but it helps us maintain a little cash flow on the side when needed.

-The wife and I are giving very serious action [whenever we get around to it] to selling our house in hopes of moving closer to the Des Moines area. For 8 years now I have been driving 2 hours each day back and forth to work and there is absolutely no logical sense for it. I had hoped to have a sign in the yard by June 1 but I don't think that the house will be ready for it....but I think I'll still put the sign up anyways and we can work on things as we have time. I'm open for later negotiations.

-I have decided that it is long overdue for me to take control of my life back from my stomach and butt. For the last 8 weeks I have been working more aggressively at getting back in to the shape that I am supposed to be in. I am taking the following actions:
  • I am only eating 1/2 as much as I used to
  • The food that I do eat is different from what I used to eat; no white bread or noodles made from white flour, more veggies, less sweets
  • I bought some running shoes....and I'm actually using them for running
  • I have gotten the mountain bike back out for some off-road trail riding
  • I hung the punching back back up
  • I dusted off the Total Gym and put it out in the garage where it could aways be ready for use
  • I try to play outside with the kids more often
What I would love to find time to do:
  • Finish writing some of my "dangling" songs that I've left alone for years
  • Record those songs once they are finished
  • Finish writing my book The Unauthorized and Incomplete High School Rememboirs of Rage Perry
  • Take a trip to Scotland.....which will one day happen!
That is all for now. I need to go refinance my auto loan on my van. The banking institution that I work for has horrible rates so I need to go do this with another fine establishment.
