Hello World!

I am back! The internet was finally put in the new house that I am in right now, so I thought I would make a post. Things at work are getting better, life is going pretty smoothly right now; even though there are a few things left to do at the old house. I am pretty tired today, I woke up at 6AM and left the comfort of my bed and into winter clothes and taken to Ken's work. I cant really complain though, I didnt start work until 9 but only took a half hour for lunch and worked until 4. What was I doing you ask? Well...I was shovling snow from the doors of the storage units. Yeah its hard work, my eyelashes froze together a couple of times but the best part is I got paid 15 dollars an hour for doing all of that.

Sadly, I cant really do anything for Christmas for my family in the States. I am working Tuseday and Wednesday so flying or driving is out of the question. I knew I should have asked for it off, but being the 'new guy' and all, its not likely no matter how hard I try. The only thing I want for all of my stuff from the cold, damp, non-heated storage unit in Eugene! I know its kind of selfish, but it is all of my stuff that I have been without for a month already; its kind of a whiplash when I think about how long I have been here already. A whole month. 30 days, and Ive gotten a job, my Alberta Lisence, and tied loose ends in the States.

There are a few things I need to do here but I will jump on those this weekend. I was all bundeled up today working outside and sometimes I would stop for a moment or two and steam would come out of my jacket! It was alarming at first, but after a while I was like all right...I am working so hard I am making steam! Weird thought I know but it was really cool to see. Well...I think I am done making this blog post as we are about to go out. Later, and I promise more blog posting.
