July 25th was the last time I posted? WTF? Man, life has been busy, but really, 7 months?

Ok, so obviously, this is dead on the vine. Life has overtaken, and I no longer have time for as much poker as I used to enjoy. Why not a quick update then huh?

I have been way out of touch. I can't help keeping up with Don's blog, and Carmen's blog, at least every couple weeks or so. I know I am missing things along the way, but here's to hoping everyone is doing well.

So, basically, I was swamped from August 1 through the beginning of November coaching Pop Warner football. I had great assistant coaches, and I couldn't have asked any more from the kids in terms of effort and attitude. We started out 7-0, then lost our last regular season game. We got a first round playoff bye, won our first game, then lost in the semi-finals for the league. I had so much fun and got a lot out of it, but man was it a lot of work. Very time consuming, and as a result, the job suffered a little. Luckily, I have a cool boss that supports me spending time doing that sort of thing, but I feel like I am still catching up now. I joined the board for the league and I am now helping with fundraisers and that kind of thing. I don't think I can commit to the head coach thing again for next year, but I still have 2 younger sons that will go through the program, so I will stay involved and eventually probably get back into coaching.

As soon as football ended, basketball began. I ended up "coaching" my first grader's team. Beehive basketball at it's finest. Being only once a week, it wasn't bad at all, and actually ended last night. Baseball practice has already started for my oldest at an indoor facility. I will be involved in 3 teams this year, since all of my boys will be old enough to play. Insanity.

Back in the fall, we had an opportunity to get a ski place up in NH at a great price. It is a small condo, but located in a perfect spot for skiing in the winter and hiking, fishing, etc. in the summer. We jumped on it and have been skiing our asses off since around Christmas. It is a long drive, but we go up just about every other weekend, sometimes consecutive weeks, and the kids are all loving it. Just 2 weeks ago I tried snowboarding for the first time with the kids. It was painful, but fun. I will most likely stick to skiing, but might switch off every now and then for a change of pace. My 7 year old picked it up real quick and that is all he wants to do now. I found a cheap used board on craigslist for him, so he is all psyched up to go boarding this weekend.

Work is good, but real busy. I just had one of my guys quit last week, so I need to get him replaced quick so I won't have to do too much work myself. I am working on getting a guy that used to work for me in here, so hopefully that works out.

That is about it. I am heading to Vegas April 5-8 for a weekend with the guys. Looking forward to that for sure. I will try and post some updates every now and then, but honestly, this is pretty boring stuff. Maybe an update of how my trip goes, and how the poker tourney I am running for the football league goes will be worth reading. Not sure. I also still owe Hoff a post on something he tagged me on in (gulp) November. I got the email just before I left for Florida with the family and never got back to it. Sorry man. I am sure you gave up on me by now.

Anyway, hope all of you are doing well and staying happy.

Poker gets in the way of life, not the other way around.
