It has been a long time since I posted. Let me start with the training program. I have not been keeping up. I have some illness and work to blame, but I won’t go into the gory details. The bottom line is that I have not been putting in the miles to complete a marathon on 1/13/08. Houston marathon is a no go. I am just starting to feel better and I will start running tomorrow 10/18/07. I am going to run something affiliated with the Austin marathon. I am going to see how the training goes before I decide on the half or the full marathon. At the same time, I may elect to skip it and run for fun that day.
On the job front, things are pretty interesting. I was called by two separate recruiters within a span of three days for the same position. Is that an indication of what the company is like? Who knows? I am happy at Spansion (for now), so it probably won’t amount to much. Another note is that they finally got me to Japan. I left on the 22nd of September and came back a week later. It was a blast. The food was great. The Japanese are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. I missed Beth and the kids terribly, but I’ll go back given the chance.
At home, the kids are doing great in school. All four of them are having a great time and learning a lot. In fact, Ollie had been giving Beth problems with going to school. Today, he told her, “I’m not going to cry anymore. I am going to go to school and have fun.”
I have more to say, but I need to get to work.
