First Day

My first day at General Dynamics is tomorrow. I’m looking forward to it. I mean, the company has an actual process that new employees go through, to aquaint them with the building, company practices, etc.

I’m sure I’ll blog more about that later. This last week, we’ve been house hunting. GD gives me per diem for a seven day house hunting trip. In other words, I’ve eaten steak four of the last six nights. (:

Melissa and I have three houses that are strong possibilities still. We’re looking closer to work, so we’ll see what we can find in that direction.

I was able to finally “fix” the passenger door lock on the Exploder.

Melissa and I attended the Church of Detroit today. Excellent sermon regarding fear and it’s purpose and proper place. The upcoming sermon series is based on a book called “The Gift of Fear” by Gavin de Becker. Apparently the author doesn’t make any overtly Christian references, but the pastor felt that the author did an excellent job with his book, so pastor is tying the book into a Biblical perspective. Interesting, to say the least. I know my description doesn’t really convey that, but whatever. I’m a bit scattery at the moment.

Just trying to transition from the college-kid schedule that I’ve adopted back into a working schedule (ie, no more staying up till 2am) has been interesting.

  1. Best of luck, Dave! I’m sure you won’t need it. As long as they show you where the bathrooms and the lunch room are, I’m confident you’ll figure out the rest. =) I’ll be praying for you and Melissa’s successful house hunting.

  2. Congrats on your first day. Have a good one!

  3. I hope your first day was good! We miss you!!!
