Update about Jim and His family

We are all settled in and we love the house. Things are going very smooth and we are very thankful. While it is stressful to be a homeowner, its a great joy and pride of being a homeowner that we can have PETS. :)

My work is more busier and I am more of a programmer than I am an accountant. In reality, I am an accountant computer programmer (my job title is "Grants Administrator). I create financial reports for all of the fiscal staff in the state's new accounting system. So, I am busy doing my accounting work along with programming the reports.

My wife still works at the Columbus Dance Theatre Columbus Dance Theatre where my step-daughter dances. She only gets part-time pay since the company is non-profit and slowly growing (started in 1998). This dance company is the second largest behind Columbus' BalletMet.

My step-daughter, Sarah, who has cerebral palsy, she is the oldest (26) and works at Arc of Ohio that provides those with developmental disabilities have and enjoy equal rights and opportunities in the workforce.

My step-daughter, Shannon, now lives in California and working at various places. She is 21 years old.

My son, Dennis, is living in Maryland with his wife and daughter. Dennis is in the Navy and he is 21 years old.

My daughter, Krista, is living with her mother and graduated from high school. She came a long way after through through her own disabilities and will be attending Columbus State Community College this fall. She is 18 years old.

My step-daughter, Shelby, is living with us. She will be a senior at Upper Arlington High School and then after school, she is off to another school which is at Columbus Dance Theatre. She will learn as well as teach. She will be performing more this year. She will be a busy teenager.

We have a dog name "OSCAR" who is a dachshund which is a wiener dog. Oscar adopted me so I end up taking care of him. :)

We have a cat name BEA. Not sure what kind of cat she is but she is a cat. (over=weight like Garfield).

We just gotten a baby kitten and not sure of the name yet but very, very cute and very very playful.

I think that is about it for now. Thanks for coming back and check on me. I am glad that most of you are still here. See you around the BLOG. :)
