I happen to come across some images of me as a young one. I thought I would share a few with you and try to add more when I get a chance. These were taken in Germany where I was born. You can see my dad in a couple of the shots…super awesome i know. To top it off I even have one with my Karate Kid outfit! Started out as a karate uniform and quickly turned into my halloween outfit as well…haha. I know super awesome. Look at them red boots!! Ill leave it at that!

One thing I have always wanted in my life was laser eye surgery. All my life i have worn glasses and just had a dream that one day I’d be able to see without them. Well, it isn’t always that simple. Some years ago and most recently a couple of months ago I was evaluated for laser eye surgery and found to be ineligible for it. Mainly due to being too farsighted the procedure can only correct so much before causing other issues.
Anyway, as luck would have it there was an alternative. Not exactly a routine thing but I was referred to a great opthalmaologist about what’s called Clear Lens Extraction. Basically it’s contacts that are inside your eye. The natural lens that sits behind the cornea is removed and replaced with a augmented artificial lens. At first, I was hesitant about it. But in the end decided to go ahead and do it! Kind of funny being a technical guy its just funny to think that I have new lenses in my eyes…like an upgrade! sweet! 🙂
So, I am happy to say I am half way there! I had one eye operated on (they do one at a time) and by in large parts a success! I’ll have to wait some time for this one to heal and probably wear a contact in the other eye till it’s time. So far I am excited no more glasses!!
So many possibilities and little benefits I can now enjoy…sun glasses anyone? Can’t wait for the next one to be done!
In the usual february freeze that blows through San Antonio, this year we got a little treat. We were brought snow! It doesn’t happen this far south. Only rarely has our town seen even this light dusting of snow fall. It had been so long since I ‘played’ in the snow. I was so excited I was outside in the freezing cold in the middle of the night enjoying it! Check out some of the pictures…
Catching my breath from such a great day, today was one of the greatest days ever. I was apart of something really special. My best friend Chad and his new wife Zahra were married! It’s hard to believe it’s here, a whirlwind the last year. I’ve just had a blast in the days leading up to this, writing my best man speech (freaking out about it), spending time with family and friends and made many new ones!
After seeing them off tonight I cannot help but reflect on what was just a happy amazing day. Even with little challenges everything went smoothly and everyone had a great time!
Even though I was so nervous, I didn’t horrible wreck my speech, and actually got some nice comments back on it. Can’t wait to see it once the video comes in. I also can’t wait to see all the pictures from today i know they will look great. I managed to snap a few pics when I could. As you can see just a perfect day.
Congrats again to my best friends Chad and Zahra! Enjoy that honeymoon!!
