Dave Still Lives Here

It’s been almost four months since I recorded an episode of the show and I apologize. I’ve been told not to say sorry when it’s been a while between episodes, but I feel the need to do so and explain why the show faded.

For one, I didn’t have anything to talk about. It isn’t because I didn’t have anything to ve thankful for, but it felt very self-indulgent to continue talking about myself. I also got through that phase of depression and didn’t feel the need to keep talking about it.

Second, I started a new job, which on one hand is a Godsend, and the other keeps me from getting episodes recorded regularly for either of my podcasts. It won’t always be that way, but for now it is.

Finally, my wife and I are talking about changing the format (and the title) of the show, as she will be joining me in discussing life I’m this new stage we are currently. I’ll keep you posted and will hopefully have an episode within the next couple of weeks where Wendie and I talk about everything.

Thanks for supporting me, my wife, and the show. We truly appreciate it!

Ep. 03 – Hey Baby!

I took a few weeks off to tend to a very important event in my life and now it’s time to talk about it. In addition to that big news, I have to give a humongous shout-out to my friends Fizz, Matt, and Daniel, who stepped up and took the reigns for a couple episodes of Geek This! while I was away. I have some good friends!

Ep. 02 – Socks

For the week of February 17, 2014 – February 23, 2014.

Thingy-things I jabbered about in this episode:

  • A surprise tax check
  • Chipotle’s Quesorito
  • My new laptop
  • Gracie’s “Big Sister” gift
  • The people of Walmart
  • My freaking awesome socks
  • Gracie’s and my trip to the local toy store and comic shop
  • My brother’s Street Shark vs my face
  • A birthday surprise for Wendie’s mom
  • Steam
  • Lots of house cleaning

What I Learned: Serving your family is amazing; not just for them, but for you, too! It’s rewarding for you, too.

Scripture: Acts 20:35 - “In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”

Almost Ready to Pop

We are so close to having our newest little girl, Eiley (pronounced like “Riley”, minus the “R”).

At least that’s what Wendie is telling me.

Her contractions have been getting more intense, but she keeps on moving and doing everything that needs to be done before our baby arrives. It blows me away. It really does! I mean, if I was in that situation with aching hips, painful contractions, and being extremely tired, I would be everyone’s worst enemy. Ya’ll would hate me! I promise!

Not Wendie, though. She keeps pressing on. Sure, she occasionally has moments of exasperation, but all-in-all, she’s been fantastically patient with Gracie and me. Right now she’s filling sandwich bags with servings of oatmeal that will last us a week. It may sound like such a little thing, but it isn’t, I promise you.

I just thought I should brag on her for a second. If you haven’t listened to the first podcast episode, be sure to do it and let me know what you think of it so far. As always, thanks for reading and listening!

Ep. 1 – Tiny Things

Week of February 10, 2014 – February 16, 2014

After dealing with hardship after hardship in just the first month and a half of 2014, I decided that God wasn’t a big bully. I learned the problem was me. I needed to change the way I was looking at life and to focus on the small things in life that I should be thankful for. Oddly enough, this first week was full of these little events.

Scripture for this episode:

Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. Of his own will he brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures. - James 1:16-18 (ESV)

For everything created by God is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving, for it is made holy by the word of God and prayer. - 1 Timothy 4:4-5 (ESV)
