Hello, Fun Guv here. Since Mike has been too busy with work and everything else to post in almost a month I figured I'd pop in here really quick and try to make up for it...just don't expect too much, he's the writer/creative one in this relationship.

First, the job:

So far so good. He's been putting in a ton of hours and he hit his first goal a whole month early (yeah Mike!). That certainly means he can't/won't let up in the pursuit of new clients. Actually he is out there today in the -10 degree wind chill and high winds...it's got to be about 30-40 MPH out there...door knocking! Now that is dedication.

Second, running:

He's still been putting in the miles most nights he's home. Monday he was able to go for a nice, enjoyable 7 mile run outside. He loved it. Not sure about times, but he was quite happy when he got home. Otherwise he's been hitting the treadmill faithfully. Marathon training starts for him again in a couple of weeks ~ he'll have to fill in the details on that ~ he's planning on doing the Bayshore for his spring marathon.

Finally, family:

He's actually had a little time here and there at home to vege out. Mainly though with the kids while I still work my crappy part-time job. They've all been kicking butt on Guitar Hero III ~ Jimmy is always up for a battle. He's also taught the kids how to play poker. Jimmy is completely obsessed with it now. On the way home from catechism last night Jimmy explained the entire game to me, how to check, how to bet, when and why to fold, and all the possible winning hands you can have. Just wait til he's old enough to hit the casinos!

We've been doing the whole extra-curricular thing too. Jimmy's cub scout meetings, Mack's band concert (that was a treat to the ears!), tennis lessons have started up again ~ exciting 2 hours for us every Friday night at the tennis club, and friends birthday parties (Mike attended both last week and hung out and chatted with the moms as I had to work during one of them).

I promise I will try to get him to sit down at the computer and put down his own thoughts...I know there is a lot brewing up there inside his head. Though it may be a few more days, he's got a Chamber of Commerce function tonight and of course the new season of Lost starts tomorrow - can't miss that!

Thank God.

An update.

I was seriously beginning to wonder.

I'm pretty sure his HEAD ain't the only place something is "brewing." Heh.

Ditto what Mac said!
