So, uhm, wow. I haven't been around here for a long time -- at least, it SEEMS like a really long time. Eight months at least, easy. Is anyone still out there? Nick? Dawn? Stacey? Laurel? Mel? Sarah?

Anyways, a lot has happened. Most notable, I got married about three weeks ago, to Meghan nee Donahoe, who I met about 4 or 5 years ago at my brother's school. (Not to be confused with Suzannah, who you guys probably heard more about.) Most of the last eight months were spent driving back and forth between her parents' house and mine, spending time together and visiting our
respective families and planning a wedding.

A wedding, by the way, costs a lot of money, especially when both sides have large, close extended families. I may rethink my plan of having all daughters...

But yes. We got married on May 16th, shortly after I turned 26. I took two weeks off from work and we flew to Ireland for our honeymoon. We'd both wanted to visit Ireland, and her ancestor's castle is actually being wonderfully restored. we got to tour it, which was pretty awesome. We had great weather, too, and just had a grand time all-around. Those of you who know me on Facebook should be able to find pictures there, but I'll try to get them up on Flickr or something for the rest of you.

Facebook is a big part of what's drawn me away from LiveJournal, but I've also been turned off by a lot of the announcements that have come down from SixApart and most of my communication needs are met by Twitter now.

So, uhm, yes. I guess that's really all I have to say right now... All I can think of, anyways. If you all are still around, I hope you're doing well. I mean, I hope you're doing well even if you aren't still around, but it wouldn't make much sense to talk to you if you aren't there to hear.

I'm here, I'm here!! I'm graduating a daughter from High School tonight. Have pretty mixed emotions about that. It's one of those milestones we parents look forward to, and she's doing it in style. She's in the top 11% of her class, graduating with honors, got an award for the best Creative Writing Student and has one scholarship so far. She's going to University of North Texas in August. I'm just not ready for that part yet, but working on it! :)

All's well here!

Back already? Is she still standing? Anyway, I know I saw you two weeks ago, but we do have to hang out some time soon again, so I can meet your beautiful new wife when she has time to breathe. Hit me up sometime soon, or you could possibly show up at my apt tomorrow for my birthday, but I somehow doubt you'll have time. Anyway, glad to hear from you again, and don't get rid of livejournal, I greatly dislike facebook! If nothing else be one of those bastards who uses livejournal to send their twitter messages of the day as a post. I hate twitter and anything associated with it, but I'll make an exception for you.
