You read that right...we're moving to Houston...me, Aniela and Abram. It's not just a vague intention. I'm not saying that we'll eventually move to Houston. I'm saying that we're moving on April 6 so I can start a new job on April 9. It's all very sudden. The opportunity came out of nowhere on March 19th and we had to make some quick decisions as to whether or not I would accept it. But we really didn't need much time to think about it. It's a great opportunity. It fulfills my dormant hope of returning to Texas and we're super excited about it.
After a very unexpected job offer on March 22, we packed up all our stuff and moved from Florida to Houston on April 6th. It’s the big move I could only dream of because I never knew how to make it happen. Now it’s a reality. It sets the stage for a brand new chapter in life with my little family in Texas. This is my journal for April of 2018.
Ahh yes...I recognize that scent. It's very distinct. It's the smell of change. It doesn't come around often...but when it does, it's undeniable. Everything's about to get really interesting. This is my online journal for the month of March 2018.

After a long hiatus from working out and 3 years of paying for a gym membership I didn't use, I'm now taking small steps towards getting in shape again. I couldn't ignore the consequences of my bad health any longer.
New month, new year, new journal. My big effort in January of 2018 was to get back into shape. And I'm happy to say that's exactly what I've done. Happy New Year and thank you for visiting my journal for January 2018.
It was a time-crunched month of December for me. As the year came to a close, I struggled to keep up with my writing, but for good reason. Our little Abram is nearly two months old now...and he's wonderful. 2017 was a great year for me personally...and also for our nation.
Abram Joseph Gonzales is the name of our newborn son. But for the first 24 hours of his life, his name was "Baby Boy." We had 9 months to decide on a name for him, but apparently that wasn’t enough time. We looked at thousands of names, even weird names from other countries. Some of the [...]
Abram Joseph Gonzales was born on Friday, November 10, 2017 in Miami, Florida (7lbs, 14oz, 21in). He has big hands and feet, long arms and legs and a full head of hair - he's absolutely perfect. 48 hours passed between the first indication of labor and Abram’s exit from the womb. It was a wild, [...]
It's hard to believe the Astros' World Series Championship is not the most significant event of my life this month. Our baby boy Abram has finally arrived! This is my journal for November 2017.
