My wife and I have been discussing divorce and today started that process by me helping her move her things to an apartment. I have to tell you I wouldn’t wish it upon my worst enemy. On Friday it was decided that the divorce is now mutual. Although the past month has honestly been the most most difficult time in my life I am learning a lot about myself and others. I’m not going to blog about this beyond this post because what is done is done and as I have said many times in the last month, you can’t unring a bell. I wish my wife lots of luck and happiness and if you also know her please do the same.
“Being divorced is like being hit by a Mack truck. If you live through it, you start looking very carefully to the right and to the left.” – Jean Kerr
I have been at a CMMA event since Sunday and am coming home this morning. On Wednesday they ended the sessions early in the afternoon to let attendees go out and network with others since we started the conference on a Sunday. Many attendees went golfing but since I don’t golf I was invited to go mini cart racing. The carts are high powered and have a top speed of 45 MPH. The people that went with us were from Safeway, Intel, Nintendo and Team People. Check out the video below to get an idea of what it is all about. The track we were on was a quarter mile track and my best lap was 27.81 seconds to give you an idea of how quick they really go. If you are ever in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area be sure and go if you are into that sort of thing. Directions to the indoor track are located here.
We caught another lizard in the house today. This has to be our fourth or fifth this summer. I was vacuuming and saw this fat lizard run from under the bed and stare me down. The cats must be bringing these things in.
If you ever get the chance, hike Beacon Rock in Washington. These pictures are probably 6-7 years old.
We went for a walk today and this dog was in the street in front of a home. We knocked on the door but nobody answered so we dognapped him so he wouldn’t get hit by a car. I’ve always wanted a pet (or son) named Tank (after my favorite UFC fighter Tank Abbott) so this little dog would have been named Tank if we would have been able to keep it. Unfortunately the owners of the dog later called us and he was safely returned back to the owners. 🙂
Pictures of when Lana and I were dating at the Oregon coast. Boy have we changed…
Pictures of the first day I bought it and a picture I took of it in the Redwoods on a trip with Lana celebrating our first wedding anniversary.
