Wow, where has the time gone? (I think all future blog posts will begin this way since that’s how I roll). I want to say I’m alive and well. I’m still looking for work, but that’s the only major pitfall in my life right now and I will not let my employment status dictate my outlook on life. Money is merely an object right?

I’ve been seeing a great woman for over a year now. We celebrated the one year mark Sunday night over a romantic dinner. I know this may seem soon, but she is moving in with me in a couple weeks. I think it will be a great thing for us. Sure, it will require lots of adjustments at first. In the end though, it will be nice to see her more than 3-4 days a week. Still need to break the news to my daughter, but I think she will handle the news like a champ. The two get along really well.

Dating with a child is tough, but I’m learning to embrace aspects of it. Heck, every other weekend I’m childless to do whatever I want. Don’t get me wrong though, I miss my daughter like crazy when she’s away with her mom. It has taken a lot of time to adjust to this, but I’m able to see how it can be a benefit. Weekend getaways!

In other news I’ve been swimming 4-5 days a week. It feels fantastic to be back in the pool. I started swimming again in late March since walking wasn’t meeting my weight loss goals. It feels amazing to be in the pool. It has always felt like a my home away from home. Not only do I love the exercise, but I love the characters I meet during my chlorine-induced coma. Since I’m not working, the pool has become my social outlet. I observe remarkable things there, some cringe-worthy and some rather emotional.

When I do find a job, I will need to cut back drastically on my hours at the pool. I think it’s a trade-off I’m willing to make. Pool or money? I suppose I can and will have both in my life. Aim high big Speedo loving boy!

    I’m happy for you! No one gets to say if it’s “too soon” but you. You know your relationship best and if you are ready, awesome. I hope it brings you even more happiness.

    Hi. I was going through some email contacts on yahoo (which I haven’t done….ever) and said “Hey! Look! Egan! Let’s see what’s going on with him, it’s been a while!” I guess a lot has happened! I’m sorry for all the changes, though I know change happens and things move on. As a child of divorced parents, I know divorce sucks for all. The adjustment time, well, it’s a lifetime thing. But it gets better, if you’re all working for the same cause (here = your daughter). So…hello. And I’ll check in more often. – sari

    Congrats, Efo! That’s great news! And joblessness sucks, but at least you’ve found the silver lining. 🙂
