New Year, Family and Launch Time

I want to preface all of this by saying that I love family. I love both sides of my family and all of Mallory’s family. I enjoy the time that I spend with everybody, the meals and the laughs shared. So here we go…

New years… So I had a pretty uneventful new year ringing in 2012. I usually do something with my wife and a few friends and have kept it pretty low key since we got married. I never partied that much for new years anyhow. Right now I am down in Ventura visiting some of Mallory’s family. I enjoy hanging out with family but I think this is the first time I have had to go so far to visit family. Normally I am good for a full day of family and would probably be good with multiple days of family if we were staying somewhere else. I understand why there are so many movies that take place with families being in close contraints over a holiday. If Mallory’s Grandmother had not wanted to leave first thing in the morning I would go to bed right now so I could leave first thing in the morning or perhaps tonight. However we will not be leaving until the afternoon. I can not remember a time being more bored. Everybody just sits around, which I guess is what I do when I am home but doing it at someone else’s home is torture. They have this dog that just gets in your way. Mallory has almost tripped over it a half dozen times. The dog is a hazard to a pregnant person.

Anyhow, as for the weather and the Cole’s home, both are beautiful. If it was not for my horrible mindset right now, I could spend days here just relaxing. It is a very relaxing place.

To aid my boredom I am sitting at the table with my laptop working on the State of Tech website. When I am bored it is hard for me to do work and concentrait because I am to overwhelmed with being bored. Sounds weird right? If it was not a holiday, I would have taken off to do something. The only people I know down here besides Mallory’s family are out of town for New Years.

I am done with three day weekends that I have nothing to do on. I can not handle it. I enjoy work and most of the time would rather be there unless we were on a vacation of our own. I guess I just need to toughen up and not be selfish but in reality, there are few days out of the year that you can spend with your own family and I would rather spend the majority of them with my own little family. I want to do things with my own family and create new memories. I don’t think people do enough of that anymore. How often do you hear of situations where family gets together for long periods of time and just get along? It doesn’t happen. I see how it can lead to conflict. It is very hard for me to not let it lead to that. I am just burying myself in my laptop or my iPhone to avoid it.

On another note, it has been hard for me to commit to writing each day. I wish that I could find the time but it is difficult.

I am very excited about this year though. It is going to be amazing. God has really allowed great things to take place in my life since I got married to Mallory. Sometimes I feel like we should be experiencing some sort of difficulty because all new marrieds go through that, however we have not. We have had a few hardships with health and a couple of small financial setbacks but nothing remotely devastating. God is great and I am so glad that I am in a mindset to accept and appreciate Him for what he is doing. I was not always able to appreciate God’s work in my life.

This week we will launch State of Tech. I have been working on this project for a while now making sure it launches the way I want it to. I am so happy with the way it is all looking so far. I am not sure how well it will be accepted but we will look good while trying. I know that there is a need for this because there is not anything to ambitious being done out there. So here is to launching yet another new project.
