Not bad.  Could be worse.  I married the most amazing/beautiful woman... yeah yeah I know... I started a garden.  I've made some new friends.  I've drawn up a chicken coop design for next spring...

Well..I'm not dead and I'm not living on the street.  So I guess it isn't horrible.

Doing ok. Moved twice this year, getting rid of about 1/2 my possessions in the process (which has been both good and bad). I'm in a tight spot financially, but I should be in a much better position by the end of the year. I've made progress on the health front, though weight loss is stalled at the moment (about another 22 lbs. to go).

Well my dad is going to rehab, we're moving into a nice cozy apartment in a few weeks, so far I've saved up $200 for charity, I was Baptised and Chrismated, my dad's half sister is dying. I'd say it's been mixed.

I returned alive from Egypt. Glory to God for all things!

Now I cannot wait to get to Ukraine for my summer holidays.
