Long time, no see

It's been quite a while since my last post, so I thought I'd take a few minutes to jot some things down. SO much has happened since my last post, it may take a while!

First and foremost, I have re-established a relationship with my son. He left for Air Force basic training at Lackland AFB on March 9. While at the MEPS station in Little Rock, the entire Porter clan showed up for the same reason I was there. However, after Trevor's swearing in and his subsequent departure, I asked the entire group to speak with me outside--in an attempt to try to repair the cluster fuck they had made of my children's' lives. They shunned my daughter because she 'chose' to live with me and showered my son with gifts and material shit to buy his silence. Silence from what, you ask? I would love to say it, but social etiquette keeps me from it. Venture to wasn't anything good.

So anyways, after making my request, the red-headed pig slut, Charlotte, stomped out, saying she had nothing to say to me or "that girl", referring to my daughter--her niece. Her father then began spouting out obscenities and garbage and posturing like he was some bantam rooster. But, as my ex-wife and her sister, Robin, began shouting at them, it became clear how it had all played out. Trevor's head was a mess because of the hatred spewed forth from those obscenely overweight, useless protoplasmic asshats. He couldn't win, regardless of what he did. Now that he's moved on (and moved OUT), that seems to have changed almost overnight. This is truly a great thing. And because karma has been on my side lately, I shan't wish bad things on those who choose to remain angry. I believe that their karma will take care of them in fine fashion. Then again, God has pity on fools and drunks...and these morons don't drink...

Next development is, UALR has decided to release me from employment due to budget cuts. They can build a $30 million building, but can't pay my measly salary? I smell a rat, and its name is Obama...but I digress. I have some very hot leads going on, one of the best being at St. Vincent Hospital--right down the street! My potential supervisor would be my mentor, Don Rehak, a guy that I spent a tremendous amount of time with, picking his brain and learning everything I could about computers. He got me started and showed me the ropes in an 'intern' sort of fashion, paying me a meager $50 a week. But, the benefits of that internship have kept me afloat for the last 15 years. My hopes are that it works out and I'll once again be working with him. More on that in my next post--advising as to where I landed.

Other than that, we're just status quo. The remodeling job has now gone on for two full years, leaving a portion of the house in disrepair for the entire time. The kitchen is 97% complete, the dining room is about 90% complete, but Madison's bedroom is left--and it's the least work of all! Money is the factor, and unstable work status isn't conducive to running up a big tab at Lowe's. Once I'm settled back into employment, we'll wrap it up and move on to the next project. Gads...two years?!

We recently celebrated our 5-year anniversary on February 27, and a half-dozen March birthdays, including Leslie's on March 31. It's been a busy time, even if it doesn't seem like it! So, with that said, I'll close out. Summer is coming, and so are the $400 electric bills. Oh, joy...

Until next time...
