Wow...it HAS been a long, long time.

Wow...it HAS been a long, long time.
I know it has been close to five years now since I last posted to this blog....long enough that anyone stumbling on this site might be all "WTFO?" and "Why bother coming back after so long....or even at all?"

Well to be honest I haven't actually stopped blogging, I just stopped on this blog...pretty much because this blog is personal, with stuff about me and my life. Not too long after my last post I discovered that my wife was...well, the long and short of it is that she chose another guy over me and we got divorced. The divorce itself took 6 or 7 months. I didn't take pretty much any of it well and life really kind of sucked for far too long. I came close to losing everything.......

I lucked out and got an odd job offer....in Oklahoma. The odd parts was I thought I was interviewing for a position, but the "interview" turned more into "You're approved, how freaking fast can you get down here?" I had about three weeks to sell my house, find a place to live, and move across country. This was May 2018 and when I got here I was told I didn't actually have a job

Wait....what?

That only lasted a couple weeks, dumb story for another time, and I got started working as an instructor at Ft. Sill.

I thought I'd rent a house for six months, a year tops, and then I'd buy a house. Remember when I said I almost lost everything? Well that was mostly because, well stuff I don't want to get into, but it screwed with my credit and I'm still in a rental, still with some things packed in boxes.

So my timeline from my last post goes something like 9 months separated, 7 months divorcing, 16 months struggling, and 23 months working at the new job. I've considered getting back to NSRM for a while now, and this whole COVID-19 "staycation" has given me ample opportunity to get it going again.

Still doesn't really answer "Why".....my why is because I still have stories to write, crap to say, and things to docuent.
