Oh hey everyone, I have been AWOL for a month and some change now.
Just want to give a quick update on what is going on, why I have been MIA and what to expect moving forward.
WTH have I been doing???
I can break this down into a few different categories
Work is kicking my ass
New role, new projects and a shit ton of planning has been the norm for me over the last 3 months. I used to be able to sneak away for a few hours a week and do outlines for my posts but that has been impossible. Some days I feel like I sit in meetings for 8 straight hours and by the time I get home I don’t even want to listen to myself much less try to put coherent strings of texts together.
Rolling sickness through the AE house
A sick 11-month-old is basically a full-time job
A sick Mr. AE is a crabby pain in the ass
Mrs. AE is more patient than me by approximately 1,000,000%
One thing I can tell you about being sick, the thoughts do not flow out of my brain. I tried to write, and what I did write was complete shit.
Between those things I have been on the lake
Finally a positive one!
In between all the nonsense above I have been on four fishing trips in the last few months that ate a lot of my weekends. Even though this has been the toughest ice fishing year I have had it has still been a blast*.
*On my most recent trip I got food poisoning on the first night, I’ll spare you the details but being sick a few miles from shore, 6 hours from home = worst night of my life. We did catch a bunch of fish, but not being to have a few beers on the lake is a real bummer.
Oh! We are having another girl!!!!!
Found out last week, having another baby girl! Everything looked good on the ultrasound and we are excited to meet baby AE #2 in July. (and a little scared honestly)
This is the last kiddo we are planning #ProudGirlDad
A break from Social Media was awesome
While I love interacting with people and talking money, the break felt damn good. I will be poking my head in the Twitter world more often but don’t want to over-do it.
- We have a new (to us) Car – post coming!
- My student loans are almost gone – post coming!
- Little AE is walking around (1-year-old next week!)
- Where the F is spring
- The Vikings are spending a crap ton of money trying to be awesome
Look for a new, more in-depth post next week.
