Life
Whats going on with my LIFE? Why have I been so busy? And little out of it maybe.....Well......Where should I start............

I lost my daddy....my step dad that raised me... though I never called him "step" dad as he was just daddy....(he married my mom when I was 2- they divorced when I was 19) Alot of who I am today is due to this man-- He was a cop- Honolulu and Seattle and was pretty strict but fun too and in all a good dad that contributed alot to who I am as an individual...and I love him for that as I think I am a pretty good boy if I do say so myself.....Dad had great morals and always wanted the best of everything...when I was young I was afraid of him a bit as he was very authoritive but thorough our later years we got closer and I saw more of what he was really about and loved him alot.... Dad passed in Hawaii on March 13th. He was only 62.....

Lost my Uncle Mel.......Uncle Mel was my godfather....He passed away on Feb 29 back home in Hawaii as well. He was my mothers favorite brother and he is the first of 6 siblings to pass on...I will always remember how he would come by on my b days and give me the coolest gifts...My fave was a chemistry set! Not a fave of my mother....She dreaded me cooking up stink gas and such in test tubes! It had a burner and everything! I love ya Uncle Mel and will miss you!!!!

One of my best buddies- Kim (he is from Denmark)... Lost his wife 2 weeks ago....She leaves behind 2 lovely boys-- Tage and Sebastian...They are 10 and 8....We are having a boys night on Saturday-- We invited my hunny's nephew- Dustin who is 10...so we are going to have the 3 boys and us 3 men for a boys night to eat, drink and play! This should be fun for all of us and a good time to let ourselves forget some of the dramas going on for a night of fun!

My biological dad had surgery yesterday....He is here in Seattle.....He has/had lung cancer....he did really well yesterday and is recovering well.....He is such a strong man and I know he will be out of the hospital by the weekend where he can recoup at home....I am hopeful and confident that he will be ok......Tomorrow I plan to spend the day with him--he is in a private room so it should be nice to hang out and take care of him and watch Jerry Springer and eat jello...Dad is one good times,all out, lets party kind of guy and I know he will be back in top shape in no time!

So besides all this going on----I have also been interviewing for a new job since early March-- 4 interviews and 4 weeks later....I found out last Friday I GOT THE JOB!!!! Its another sales job similar to what I do now but for a different company. I have been at my current job for 10 years this August (my longest job ever) but I think it is time to move on.... It would be a new challenge and a new opportunity and a little more $ and also something I always wanted to do..........So after much thought and looking around at my life and whats going on around me....... I just did it .......I gave my notice to my current job yesterday.....right before heading out to the hospital to be there when my dad when he came out of surgery.........YES I am scared a bit....scared shitless actually......its a big step! My last day at my current job will be April 30....I start the new on May 5......

Ok friends...could you just do a little prayer for me that all goes well-- or whatever you may do for some good ju ju to happen my way........Light up some sage etc........what a crazy start to the first part of the year! I am hoping it can only get better!

Listen here my little pumpkin, life is definitely a journey. The seasons of our lives are wild and varied. And should be considered a good mix of every emotion possible. My congrats on the new job. I wish you happiness on the journey, in spite of what things are coming at you. It is possible.

Definitely too much to take on at once. I hope you feel better.

On a brighter note, did you Eli Stone last night? It was awesome!

Sorry for your recent losses. I have found I have to experience a complete year of seasons and holidays for a loss to fully register.
Congrats on the new job. I would so LOVE to change but one gets in that comfort zone and doesn't like to change. Strength and courage to you and a blessing on your head.
