Catching Up
I haven't posted here in a while, so I thought an update would be appropriate.

I hit a horse in November and totaled my Toyota 4runner. No one in the car was hurt, and the horse got up and ran away, afterward. I managed to slow down to about 5 miles per hour before impact, so I'm hoping the horse was okay. My 4runner was 15 years old, so it didn't take much to total it. I was almost up to 300,000 miles on it. Oh well. We've been a one car family, since then. I hope to get another car soon.

My fiance became my wife on December 20th, 2008. We've been happily married for a little more than two months, now. I'm changing my default user picture to one that includes my wife, Julie.

Those seem like the two most significant things that happened. I'm still around. Having an instant family has certainly shifted my priorities, so I'm not posting here, as often. I still try to keep up with the journals I follow, here, but any given post out there has about a 50% chance of being read, simply because I can't get online every day to catch up. Still, LiveJournal offers things I'm not eager to give up. Some of you have quite interesting things to say.

Congratulations!!! I didn't know a thing about it. I must have missed that post. How sweet you look, the two of you!

Thanks. I think my last post was just after we got engaged. We got married at the start of a vacation, and we did some traveling to meet various people. When I got back I put off posting an announcement, and this is the first I've actually mentioned it.

I'd like to post more things here. I still prefer a real blog to things like FaceBook, although I keep in touch with some people there who don't have blogs. But still, blogging takes more time for someone focused on wording things the right way as I am. Julie has brought two teen-aged daughters into my life, and in general, I have less time to spend on the internet than I used to.

So it's my fault, not yours. This is the first announcement.

Yes, it could have been. I had three kids in the car. I'm glad I made them all wear seat belts. Even so, no one in the car remembers the impact being that serious. We were lucky.

Congrats all round!
Well except for the car, but who knows that too may have been a blessing in disguise.

Thanks.

It the accident is a blessing, I'm not yet prepared to see that. 8-) But who knows how I'll see it, years from now. I am, at least, glad no one in my car was hurt.
