State of the Youngman

Hi guys.

Sorry I've been away for so long.  But as you can see from my last post, I've been busy.

Let's see.  What has been happening in my life?

For one thing, I moved to Maryland.  The casino where I was working in Pennsylvania cut my days down significantly, so I auditioned at a new casino in Maryland, which hired me as a full-time dealer.  Money-wise, it was a no-brainer.

For now.

The second major life change, as you read about last week, is that I am now engaged. 

Individually, these two life changes are wonderful.  Together, however, they present some difficulty.  Fortunately, I have weekends off, so I am able to spend the weekends with my fiancé.  Unfortunately, this is our only time together each week.  It has been tough, but we have been making it work.  The next year will probably see another change for one of us, though, as we decide in which state we want to live.

But enough about me.  How are you?

I'm sorry that I've been away for so long, but I am back for good.  Life is calm enough again for me to get back to writing.

My goal is a modest one: to post once a week.  This will keep me at it, while still giving me some time to pursue other projects.

Like planning a wedding.

Hi again guys.  I missed you.

  1. I missed you, too. I lived in Maryland for 15 years (three in Laurel and 12 in Hagerstown). I loved it there. I must ask a favor of you: Will you please send a birthday card for me to pass on to my (former) mother-in-law? Her name is Margaret. You can send it to Janie Goltz, PO Box 61371, Jacksonville, FL 32236
    If you can, I appreciate it, and if you can't, I understand.


  2. Dropping by your blog to catch up reading. I too have been gone for most the year. Welcome back!

  3. I was wondering about the only seeing each other on weekend thing you mentioned in the last post. I almost emailed you to ask, but I figured that was too nosy. So I was just nosy in my mind and fortunately I found out the answer anyway!

    I am elated to hear that you plan to start posting again. I have been really hit and miss with my own posting (although waaaay better than you, ha ha :) so I've decided to just post once a week, too. When I plan to post 2 or 3 times, it puts too much pressure and I end up not posting at all.

  4. Welcome back! Looking forward to regularly reading your posts again.

  5. I've been missing your blog A LOT!!! It makes me smile and I like smiles!

  6. Wow, I've not stopped by here for a long time. Not since Dude Write. Is that still going?

    Welcome back! Glad that life is treating you well and that you'll be back to posting on a regular schedule.

  7. congrats!!! on a new job and engagement!

  8. I eagerly anticipate your posts. Great to have you back.

  9. One of us murdered the other in a jealous rage and cannibalized the body, but other than that, we're doing pretty well.*

    Glad to see you back and glad to hear you're doing well!

    *not really

  10. Oh, I've been away too, but I am glad to see you back. Sometimes I get worried.


When you comment, I vibrate.
