It’s Been a Long Time

It has been nearly a year since I’ve posted on my blog but I’ve thought about it many times. This year has been a very tumultuous time for several of those in our family. With several family members going through crisis, I’ve just not felt like getting the blog. Our office is separate from the rest of the house and I often feel guilty leaving my wife alone while getting on the computer. She’s a great wife and is always telling me that it is okay but I haven’t felt like it.

I’ve been working on a few things since I’ve posted last and I’ll cover them in future posts. One of them is rebuilding our home network with Ubiquiti UniFi gear, both wired and wireless. You may remember last year I had a large tree cut out of the back yard and it left a large area of no grass in the area. I figured that over this summer the grass would fill in now that it has plenty of sun. It has filled in some but doesn’t look like it will have time to fill in completely before the arrival of cooler temperatures. Next Summer I may be forced to add sod to the lawn to get it to fill in faster.

For a long time, I’ve been getting up in the morning feeling very sleepy. I, or maybe I should say that my wife told my doctor. He sent me to have a sleep study done and it was a horrible experience because I already have insomnia. This is why I dislike Daylight Saving Time so much. In this sleep study I barely got any sleep so they had to schedule a second one. I have to say the second was much better than the first. It appears that I have sleep apnea and as my son explains it, I’ll have to wear a mask with a leaf blower attached. Well, the mask was a big help on this sleep study. I had such a bad time on the first one that I was almost not willing to do it again. The second sleep study was lasts night and I feel much better this morning.

This year, my wife and I will be married for 30 years. We are going to use it as an opportunity to go an a cruise for the first time. We are very excited about it and plan to not only take many pictures but also document the trip on video. We’ve purchased some video gear and video editing software so that we can share our experience on YouTube. Keep an eye out for that later. Thank you for checking into my blog. I hope to be more consistent on posting in the future.
