A Year Gone By

Hard to believe it's been a year since my last post.  Truth is, there were plenty of times I felt like blogging, however, every time I went to do so, I saw my last post, read it, and didn't want it to become just another post.  As time went by, I felt like I'd wait and come back and reassess things after a year.

I recently told Mrs McGoo that Monday, the 19th, was a year since Kodi had passed away.  A lot has happened in that time, yet it still seems like it was a a few weeks ago that it happened.  Still miss the guy like crazy and there are so many times I still look when I wake up in the morning to see if he is laying on his bed. 

I still miss ya buddy.

So it has been a year since I last blogged and I figured I would document (somewhat) what has gone on in our lives since the last time I posted.

- I met one of my lifelong goals last December by graduating from college and, in fact, did it in three and a half years.  Really big thanks goes out to Mrs. McGoo for being an incredible supporter of the venture.  Honestly, it is something I had wanted to do for a long time and never thought it would be possible.

- After Kodi passed away, we felt like we wanted to wait for the right time to get another dog.  I wanted to really be able to grieve and also give Dexter a lot of time and attention that I felt like he should get. However, we realized after a while, Dex didn't like the idea of being alone.  All Dex has ever known was having a brother to play with around the house, so when we left the house, Dex was all alone. He started acting out a lot and tearing things up, which led us to believe he was lonely.  So we talked and felt like it was a good time to get him another brother. 

Enter "Tango" our new puppy.  There is a story behind how we went about getting him and how we came up with his name, but I'll save that for another blog.  Needless to say, he's been a great addition to the family.

- Mission Trips to Ethiopia and Uruguay.

- Mrs. McGoo one more year of Nursing school.

- Obama re-elected

Hopefully a lot more happening in the next year.  If the Mayans were wrong...

I'm confident they were.

Until next time.
