Life has been exciting here lately. For starters, we’re expecting our third daughter this summer. Naturally, this wonderful news comes with its share of considerations and lifestyle changes. I don’t remember the first or second having quite the same reality-shifting effect this early on. I guess the third time is the charm. Maybe it’s because I’m now drastically outnumbered by females in my own home. Maybe it’s because the third child will again change how often my wife can work. Whatever the reasons, it’s an adventure, and I’m looking forward to God’s faithfulness in it. We’re trying to make some adjustments to our lifestyle now so it’s not such a shock when suddenly our diaper expenses double.
Next on my mind is the wedding I’ll be officiating later today. This will be the second wedding I’ll have the pleasure of performing. This is one of the many joys of pastoring a young adult church. I’m excited for the happy couple!
Working out at home has gone pretty well for me so far. Working from home, I’ve been able to fit several sets of exercises in between the various work tasks I’m doing. I’ll keep the details of my workout quiet, as to not embarrass myself or solicit heckling. But in any case, the results have been good, both in general fitness, strength training, and weight loss. I’ve lost over 30 pounds now. I’m slowly increasing the number of reps in my sets. I’m happy about saving a little money each month from the gym membership fees. I’m also looking forward to some nicer weather which should make cardio a bit more reasonable.
I’ve been getting more active in tinkering with technology lately. Along with some of the WordPress-related trinkets I’ve done in connection with this blog, I’ve just started dabbling in mobile software development. I’m starting with Android since I have a phone and a tablet to try apps out on. I’ve got an idea or two rolling around in my head. We’ll see what comes of it.
I’ve got a busy weekend ahead. I should probably get some rest.
