Been On Walkabout

6 06 2008

So I know my adoring fans have been voraciously checking this ‘ole blog for new information on the stunningly fabulous life of Mr. M. Well I’m back and ready to give some updates. This post will most likely be nothing more than vanity so if you don’t care to know about some of the more mundane details of my life you can change the channel now. Thanks and enjoy!!

-First of all a REALLY BIG shout out to Mrs. M for being a wonderfully disciplined new mom. Not only is she getting up every three hours (night and day) to pump milk (“you can milk anything with nipples Jack”) for our sweet babies, but she is already 5 pounds lighter than when she first found out she was pregnant. That’s right I’ve married a very fabulous woman!

-I spent the first half of this week at Annual Conference for the AWF Conference. For those of you that have been around the UMC long enough you know basically what this means. It was more fun for me this year that in past years because I was basically there in my new job capacity and it was nice to talk to a lot of my preacher friends from over the years and to talk to new people that I met who are interested in working with me and seeing me do well in this new role.

-I am currently writing this post from the PC in our guest bedroom. I have spent the better part of the last 3 months trying to get our wireless access point to connect to my home network and my Mac. Through sheer luck of doing basics and simple things like uninstall/reinstall I have gotten it to work. A special thanks to LL  (ironically I can’t link to Mr. L at the moment for my PC does not have his blog in my bookmarks and I am too lazy to find the Macbook and look it up) for some late night tech support the other night.

-I played softball last night. I have been playing most of the season and have been enjoying it but have been slow to get my game back as I did not play at all last summer. I have never been a hitting threat in softball but have always played some pretty solid defense (both infield and outfield). Last night was finally the night that I got back into a defensive groove. At the start of the second game I was standing over next to the fence talking to Mrs. M while the other team warmed up when I felt a hard smack directly on the back of my calf only to discover I had taken a line drive throw directly to the back of my leg. It smarted a good bit and I think by the end of the weekend I will have quite the nasty bruise (picture may be forthcoming).

-I am more and more excited all the time about my new job. I can’t wait to get in and hopefully effect some real change in our conference youth ministries. I hope that I can be an asset and not “another in a long line” of people who just are kind of there.


-My sweet baby girls…Harper and Lily are doing SO good right now. They are both over 2 pounds, both on breastmilk, and as the doctors put it the only thing they need to do right now is ‘eat and grow’. The nurse last night did mention that they had some concerns about Lily’s blood pressure but they were still monitoring it and it very well could be nothing more serious than they were using a blood pressure cuff that was too small (ha, go figure).

Well I am off for now…I have a very busy weekend ahead of me. We have company coming for the weekend, Mrs. M’s father is getting remarried tomorrow, and SLI starts at Huntingdon on Sunday and that is something that I am helping to plan and carry out. Hope you all have a GREAT WEEKEND!!

I’m glad you are doing so well right now. And Mrs. M is doing fabulous it sounds. I am quite jealous. 😉 As for your liberal-ness, a very small congrats to you on your candidate of choice winning the nomination for your party. OUCH! That was hard to say. 😉

I am so happy for you with the new job. I am sure you will do a great job. I really want to see those girls soon. Tell Laura that her blog was beautiful. I couldn’t post because I forgot my password. Silly me.
