Vacation – Anniversary

Posted in Family, Vacation on June 17th, 2019 by James

Wow, had a great time on our trip this summer. Gone from home for a total of 10 days. Don’t think I’ve ever been away from home for so long. Had a great time, and no regrets.

Worked a short day on Thrusday May30th, grabbed the rental car, then started to head out to Reno for the night. Not much to really mention here, besides that the fact that Reno is far from amazing. Thought the place was a dump, and rude people. Just wasn’t impressed.

Friday, we started on our way to Oakhurst, CA. Took a different way cutting through South Tahoe for lunch. Cute little town, and we enjoyed it. But wow, it was a long beautiful drive through the mountains, little towns, etc. Drive was long mostly due to the speed limit, curves in the road, etc. Got an odd feeling that Apple Maps screwed us a few times. It was a long day with lots of driving.

Slacking Once Again

Posted in Family, Fishing on May 21st, 2019 by James

Wow, i’m slacking again with this. Not really much to say. Just been doing yard work, waiting for my mouth to heal up, trying to go fishing, and that’s about it.

Did have Ben, Shan, mom, and dad over for a bbq Sunday. That was alright, nothing too amazing, but good times. Jayden came over in the afternoon/evening for a few hours.

Me and Stephanie went fishing up at Willard Bay the afternoon of Mothers Day. Caught our first fish of the season, decent size catfish, and caught a tiny little Walleye. Both of em really tasty, and made for a nice dinner.

Got a four day weekend coming up due to Memorial Day. Nothing really much planned. Just work on the truck, maybe the boat, and going to the soccer game. Work for 2 1/2 days, then start our vacation. Excited for the vacation, but not excited for the cost.

Have been going back to the gym. Been going 2 days a week, and trying to make it three times a week. Awesome thing is. Both me and Stephanie have lost 20 lbs since the beginning of the year.

Slacker….

Posted in Family, Fishing, Vacation on April 25th, 2019 by James

Slacking off on this. Meant to do a update, but just too busy with life. Well, that’s the excuse i’m going with anyway.

The basement…..Got that basically finished. Few little things we need to finish up with, but for the most part it’s done. Looks awesome, and i’m excited to have my basement back. Really enjoyed the fact of everyone that stepped up, and helped with the basement. Couldn’t have gotten it done without help from Matt, Jim, Stephanie, and Ben.

Got the boat basically ready for the season. Past few weeks I repacked the wheel bearings, changed out the fuel/water filter, hooked the battery up backwards. grrrrr, that fried a cable, and had to fix that. That was super frustrating. 15 seconds of the cables backwards, smoke, 10 hours to find the cable, make sure nothing else was fried, splice in a new cable. It’s fixed now, but time consuming, a weekend that I could have been fishing. Me and Stephanie did make it up to Willard Bay last Saturday, didn’t catch anything, but was nice to get out. Did loose a buddy bearing at some point, so I need to look at the wheel bearings again. grrrrr…. I wanna replace the other two fuel filters, and the water impellers. I’ve never done a water impeller before, so that should be interesting, fun, frustrating, and rewarding.

Basement….

Posted in Family, Friends, General on March 4th, 2019 by James

Had a good weekend. Stephanie ended up working Saturday, so I had a mellow day during the day. In the afternoon, watched the RSL game, passed up a poker game to kick it with Stephanie and Ben. Ben had a few friends over Saturday evening, so we went over there for a few drinks, and good times.

Sunday…….What a packed full day. Went to the gym Sunday, and had a good work out. Went home, and started pulling the carpet in the basement. Jayden came over for a bit, and we all went to lunch for some Sushi. Went back home, finished pulling the carpet, the padding, and the stupid tacky boards. Matt came over, and we started to rip down that stupid wall that had some ugly wood panel BS, and threw up some dry wall. Busy packed full day. I’m impressed with the amount of work we got done. I think we decided on the floor/paint colors too. We hope to get the wall finished, paint done, and start laying down the floor on Sunday if everything goes as plan.

Update…..

Posted in Family, Friends, General on February 1st, 2019 by James

Wow, I’m starting to slack off on this. Last weekend wasn’t anything too exciting. Stephanie got suckered into working last weekend as overtime, along with tomorrow. Sucks cause she had to work OT last year on my birthday too. Played some poker this past Saturday night, that was alright. Took 8th out of about 18 players. Should have played better. Just dealt some bad cards. The good cards, just weren’t good enough.

Last Sunday, me and Stephanie did manage to replace the kitchen facet. Stephanie wanted an upgrade, and the last one was leaking pretty good.

This past Tuesday, I did manage to get the day off, and went shooting with Aaron. That was a blast. Went out on the South-West side of Utah Lake. I won’t go into deals, but did have lots of fun, and wanna buy an AR-15 now. So much fun. Aaron did shoot a 20lb frozen ham with a 30-06 (I think that was the round, or some short of big rifle round). It was awesome seeing that ham explode like that. Found ham 15-20 feet away, and a piece went flying about 15-20 feet in the air. We both got a good laugh out of that.

2019!

So lets see what we got…..

Birthday Weekend

Birthday Weekend

I must say I had a good weekend. Better than expected. Friday, me and Angela got ready, and went to Club Metro to check out Corvid and we saw part of Tragic Black. Corvid put on a great show. Besides that, it was okay. The vibe felt odd with the few people there. Angela was nice enough to drive my drunken ass home.

Wow, It’s Been Awhile….

Wow, It's Been Awhile....

Wow, it’s been awhile since I’ve updated this. It’s been about a month since my last update. I’ve started at Verio again as a Unix System Admin. I started just about a month ago. So far, I’ve been happy. Wish I knew more, and felt more useful, but i’m sure that will just come with time. My drive into work has dropped from 100 miles to just over 30 miles. Can’t wrong with that. I’m also doing the type of work I want to be doing. Dugway was just boring, and when there was work. It was just boring, and not very fun. I enjoy my coworkers here at Verio more also. Working 5 8’s is taking some getting used to, compared to the 4 10’s I’ve been doing over the past few years. The days feel shorter, but I really enjoyed having 3 days off from work. I’m working 10am till 7pm Sunday – Thursday. I enjoy having my Friday and Saturday off from work.

Memories, Hooks, and Guns!

Memories, Hooks, and Guns!

Let’s see, a lot of has happened over the past week. Last Friday I went to Club Vegas with a friend to see Corvid play a show. Had a good fun time. To my surprise my parents both went to Club Vegas to Corvid/Ben play. It was a lot of fun. Didn’t make it to bed till around 2am if I remember right. No biggie, but had to be up at 5:30am to get some fishing done.

So I got up at 5am or so to meet up with Jim to get some fishing done. We decided to go up and hit Strawberry. It was a great trip, just wish the fishing was better. I managed to catch a 14″ rainbow after a few hours of nothing. We ended up a getting a few bites. Called it quits at around 10:30-11:00. I wanted to be back into SLC at around noon. I managed to get home at 12:30. At 2pm I meet the Crums for lunch at Rodizio Grill up in SLC. We all enjoyed the food, and it was a great time. I was beyond the point of tired, and not even thinking right. Some time over the weekend, I also managed to buy a Mossberg 12 gauge shotgun. I got a pretty good price on it, $177.00 from evil Walmart.
