Hawaiian Style

I am finally sleeping longer into the night. I have been crashing right after I put my kids to bed because I’m up early talking to my girlfriend to start out her work day. The past 2 weeks have been hard but I am able to call her, talk a few then go back to sleep. I think I’m finally over this insomnia phase. That’s been a 6 month struggle. I only need about 6 hours of sleep a night but being on a different time zone than all of my business calls or meetings has been hard to adjust to.

The kids are all doing well. We are all adjusting to our 2 new additions to the family. Life is peaceful, boring, and easy. I love it. When the kids are in school I glide along the weeks because it’s pretty much the same routine. Homeschooling is a challenge but we are working hard with the boys teachers to get the school year started in a positive direction. We have been at it over a month now and I can say it is getting better. The first few weeks were rough for a lot of their classmates. I have opted out of this school year, they offered online school for those that want it. We are back in lockdown for another 2 weeks which means I can only go out for emergencies or food. They are looking to pull back some restrictions but it’s been a roller coaster. I have to buy food for 3 weeks at a time just in case we go back on lockdown. We had it so the girls and I could go out Monday through Thursday anywhere we needed or wanted to go. The understanding was mask up, glove up, or don’t go. I keep telling everyone we all have made it through this COVID mess without getting it. I have to keep doing the exact same precautions to ensure we are all healthy. We could sign up for the drive thru COVID testing but no one has any symptoms. I don’t want to waste any tests when I know we are on the compound and not coming off of it for a while. If someone had been sick, of course I would take everyone for the test. I thank God every day that we have made it this far.

I also pray everyday for healing and purpose. There have been almost 10,000 cases of COVID so far with 87 deaths. I’m so thankful I made the right choice for my family removing us from Denver. Alex’s health is number 1 to me and I was scared he would get it and die. In Denver county they have 11,579 cases with 434 deaths. I don’t know why the death rate here is so low but I’m thankful for all of the medical professionals that are keeping us all safe. They are all heroes. It’s a tough time in the world. Pray and try to show grace to all. That’s all we can do.

How are you guys doing? We are going to be talking about the Michael Cohen book on my #VeganSam podcast. We knocked out about 5 episodes of that one and my #SoulToLife podcast over the weekend. I’m still working on editing but I promise all of my podcast fans they will all be up soon. I’m loving our new spot! It makes editing, adding filters and text to our videos much better. Yes I just got a haircut and yes it is much shorter than I wanted. You will see that in the videos. I’m happy it will grow out fast but I needed a new style and this one is called Hawaiian style. Feel free to add your comments in our comment section over there when you watch the shows. And yes my dog was barking a lot in one of them. Sorry? He was playing with the boys.

That’s about it. No huge updates. Quiet, calm. The best part of the year. Is it almost fall? I wouldn’t know. It’s 84 degrees here every day Lol
