Entry The First (And only)

Sabe

4,376 views

Well, All, Sabe has returned! ...Again. I think my last set of posts took place back in 2013 or so, and there has been a LOT that has changed; it amazes me that it has, though, since I always thought of my life as so unchanging. Back in '13 I was working at the Arena doing Security work...it wasn't exactly what you'd call fulfilling, but it paid the bills and kept me busy. Well, it was just a year after that, when things changed, and they changed fast. To make a lot of superfluous details and exposition short, I fell in love. She was a part of the EVS (a glorified acronym for Janitorial Staff) Department and was just a face in the crowd; then we began to talk when we both had time. After that, it was pretty fast...we'd make excuses to run into each other during working hours; then there was the exchange of phone numbers; after that, it was a whirlwind courtship. We did a few things out of order, though.

After things began to really heat up, we both left the Arena for differing reasons, on paper at least (more pay and less politics was the main idea for both of us, really), and started other employment for almost another year. I went to FedEx, she to an insurance company, where we could both earn what we were going to need for the coming future...she was pregnant! On August 10, 2015 our daughter was born; a bit preemie, and stubborn about eating, but whole and healthy otherwise. "Peanut" has been a challenge now and again (good Lord is there a lot of me in her!), but it has been worth it...I couldn't imagine life without her!

We apartment bounced twice in the months and years following "Peanut"'s arrival, until we found one that would fit all of us when The Boss had all her kiddo's around. I can sense the confusion...didn't I mention? The Boss had prior kids before we got together...3 other girls, as a matter of fact! We get along like a house afire, though...love them just as much as I do "Peanut". Well, the second apartment worked for almost two years, during which time (June 24, 2017) the boss and I got married! Things improved again! Then, about 6 months after that, I got into a spat with the landlord, and we had to figure out a new living arrangement rather quickly...Me and my damn temper; even though I followed the laws for the City and State, it was deemed I didn't have enough evidence to charge my landlord with negligent maintenance. Thanks to my time in the service, though, I had access to my VA stuff, and less than three months later and 150 miles or so west, I became a homeowner! A small town of 2,000 or so, a good vibe and lots of space for things to keep improving! The house is a two story with 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a spare room that I turned into a mini man-cave and sits on 3 city lots: total space (Land and house) is .44 acres! The house will need some TLC over the years, but I can say we are more than happy. Soon, the wife wants to open an in-home Daycare, and I would like to start woodworking again, in addition to my off and on writing.

I hope any Clan who takes the time to read this has had good luck, joy and many blessings in their own lives since my hiatus, and that they all keep coming for you! In the words of Tigger: TTFN! Ta, Ta For Now!

Sorry it took me so long to reply to this. I read this months ago when you posted it, but I got side tracked with things and forgot to reply to it until now.

Congrats on finding the love of your life, having a child and getting a house! Many great accomplishments to be proud of. :D I hope your future continues to do so well. :)

It's been up and down, since the entry, but thankfully mostly up, lol! I'm just glad we're surviving this FUBAR weather, here. Flooding, blizzards, thunder-snows and snow-nadoes! Nebraska has always been temperamental, weather-wise, but great googly-moogly...NDOT has reports of between 4 and 8 bridges out around the central portion of the state; 6 dams for sure that are just gone, and others critically damaged; levee's without number breached, broken or bulging. Add on top of that all the road damage, property damage/loss, field and livestock loss...it may be a hard year for a lot of people, especially if we can't get our collective shit together and decide whether or not we're declaring a state-wide emergency.

      Well my dryer broke after about 15 years and multiple repairs I've done over those years. I had to buy a new dryer. So far so good. I was finally able to get my laundry done again and my bathroom no longer smells like dirty socks and febreeze.

      FML my pressure tank is failing for my well. Its getting replaced next week. Getting a new whole house water filter installed too along with some new valves and safety upgrades. Props to the well company employee for giving me the tip of hooking up an air compressor to the pressure tank to put some air in the bladder to get the system gimping along until the repair work is done. I miss public water. lol.

      This has been a busy summer. I'm almost looking forward to winter so I can get a break from all the lawn mowing and outside projects. Hopefully the snow blower I bought this year works good so I'll have alot of free time this winter to get caught up on things. When I've had free time I've been playing Final Fantasy X over the last 5 months and I've somehow finally hit 100 hours on it. Lol. Only took me about half a year.  I still didn't beat it yet but I'm at the end game stuff now with the monster arena and omega ruins.

      I got back from Ohio last night. My mom had a Remembrance Party in honor of my dad this last weekend. It was a really nice time. I'm glad I got to see so many people that knew my dad and talk to them about how he was a positive and/or great influence in their lives. The party was a bbq party too. My younger brother smoked 30 pounds of pulled pork and 20 pounds of bbq beef. I helped with the process. It was a great time.
