I'm tired, but happy. Here's why...

The last two weeks have been an amazing one for my physical health. My blood glucose is actually under control. I have only binge ate once in the same time frame. I'm loving the behavior from my manager at my new job. The culture there is that if you do you job well, they will let you follow your passion.

Then why am I so tired? I think it is because that I still don't have a home of my own yet. My uncle Bob is graciously allowing me to stay at his home until I get a place or Memorial Day (whichever comes first). I still just have anxiety about not being my own place, and it feels weird.

I'm also trying to learn a lot more about my job and learning how to do it well. Problem there is there still is another team that is doing the work of mine, as well, and there isn't enough to go around. They know 4 products; my team only knows one right now.

The hardest part is my family. I miss my wife and kids, but my oldest has gotten to the point that he's going to run afoul of the law and I'm going to have to let him get caught up in the system. It's hard to do things like find a house, get utilities set up, and schedule a move when the partner in crime is over 800 miles away.

This week was fair to good, on a OMG -- bad -- fair -- good --great scale.

It's been a long time, I shouldn't have left you.

It's been almost a year since this blog has seen a new post, so it's time.

I've been in Utah for two months now, and I feel like the opportunities are wide open. There are many advantages to changing your location. Even more than I thought.

My diabetes has been under better control since I have been here. Can't believe that changing my location dropped my avg glucose by almost 100 mg/dL.

My new employer is fantastic. The culture here is the one I have always wanted: giving enough to let you do the work.
