Last Saturday I talked with my cousin Jeremiah on the phone for about 2 hours. It was so interesting to see how much we have in common. Jeremiah plays guitar and I do as well. (however, he is far more talented than me), Jeremiah designs websites and I just happen to do this as well. We actually spent quite a bit of time talking about websites. For me I don’t know a whole lot of people that know anything about websites, so I don’t get to talk a whole lot about it without getting glazed over looks from friends and family. Maybe Jeremiah is in the same situation, so we talked about websites a lot. Overall, this two hour conversation was very enjoyable and didn’t feel strange and awkward (even though we had never talked before).

This is the second phone call I have had with my ‘new’ relatives and both calls were really good. Which is very encouraging to me since I feared that awkwardness would prevail in any conversations I might have with them.

I think I have a lot happening in my life at the moment. Meeting relatives I had never met, waiting on a new job, and exploring adoption options. So maybe I will hold off on running for Governor or Senator or County Commissioner or even President of the United States until a few things settle down a bit.
