Wow. I think this blog proves how much having a kid changes your life. My last post was 4 years ago! So what has happened in that 4 years? Here it goes.
We had another child. His name is Weston Dale Pettijohn and he is my little Bubba. We had his 2nd birthday party today, but his birthday is actually tomorrow.
We moved from Mustang to Bridge Creek, bought a foreclosure and have paid it off. (WE'RE DEBT FREE!)
I joined the Bridge Creek Fire Department, have completed EMR and Firefighter 1 training.
My grandpa Ryans went to be with our Lord and Savior. I miss him everyday. I was blessed to be able to talk about him and his faith in God at his memorial service and to be able to put together a slide show.
I'm sure there is much more, but that's a start anyway. Hopefully the next post won't take me 4 years.

Today started like any other day. I woke up, got ready for work, and was just putting my backpack into the back seat of our 2003 Ford Explorer when everything changed. "Hmmm, Where did that glass come from?" I thought as I sat my backpack down. I looked up and found the rear passenger side window... gone.... What? Confused I stood there for a moment trying to figure out what freak accident could have broken out the window. A rock thrown from a lawnmower? Kids playing baseball in the street?
I walked around the car and noticed that this was no accident. Someone had used a prybar to bust out the window so that they could get into the vehicle. Outraged, I walked into the house and told Shambra "Someone broke into the Explorer!" We went outside and started to survey the damage and Shambra said "They tore up the dash!" Looking toward the steering wheel I noticed that they wanted more than the stuff inside the car, they tried to steal the vehicle! It seems that they tried to forcibly turn the ignition with a prybar, and in the process tore up all kinds of stuff. Well, so much for driving it to the body shop.
As I was surveying the damage, I noticed something in the drivers seat. It looked like... A cell phone? Yes! A cell phone! A clue! We can catch the moron that did this! A rush of excitement coursed through my veins as I dialed the Mustang Police Department.
When the officer arrived he took down all my information, and asked about the cell phone. I handed it over and told him that hopefully we can catch the guy with the information on the phone. He then told me that he noticed that the vandals had hit several cars on our street, and it could just be someone's stolen phone from another vehicle. While this is possible, I would bet that the cell phone belongs to the vandal, just based on the wallpaper and contact names I saw on the phone.
Anyway, all this has left me very angry. Thankfully I had full coverage on the Explorer with a $100 deductible. So the tow truck came and got the Explorer, it is in the shop, and it will get fixed. Funny thing is, I'm out $100, and the criminal is out a cell phone!
