General Broadcast!

            This is a statement on why I haven’t been updating any of my blogs or have started on any of my projects. It comes to the point that I am scared of two things, I am going to fail at everything I create and or I will get in the rut of just working and sleeping, therefore not have the time to create. The fear of getting in a “rut” comes from the point that every time that I would ask my father, what was he up to? I would get the generic answer of “work!” Hoping for a different answer, I still to this day ask, what he has been up to and either it is the typical answer or the statement that nothing was new. My father is a very passionate man, but I felt that he was supposed to be born in a different time and would prefer something like the Old West. I know that it is stupid to think that I am going to fail, with not really giving it my all. I wanted to reevaluate why I want to create anything after I started having this feeling. It comes to the point that I love the outcome of being expressive and I wanted to find that passion again.

            I never thought that fear would demean my natural state of wanting to create. My stepmother had always said that I was a worrywart and she was right. See if you would talk to my grandmother or really any other person within my family, they would agree that I love to express myself (more than you know). From a young age, I would put on shows for family and friends. In high school, I was in Theater, Stagecraft, Choir, and did Art for a bit as well. After high school, I lost my passion “fearing” that I would not get anywhere with it. I started working and therefore I silently smothered that little feeling to create. Years pasted and I got married. It was Amanda that relit that spark and I soon started again to create. Again more years pasted and it seem with a mixture of laziness and fear, I never really created anything. It was when Georgia was born that I really wanted to start doing stuff to show her that creating something out of nothing was one good trait to have in this world.

              I started to produce ideas for comics and wanted to start working on my art. One time I had thought of writing a children’s book and then a book of my own. I had all of these things rushing around in my head and when we decide that it would be that best at the time to move NC, I felt that I had to tuck away that passion again. It was hard to process that I would make such a big change and take a chance on a promise that was given to me. To the people who know how that all ended, it sadden me that I did get the shaft. That I smothered this powerful force that I wanted to set free, for just an opportunity to advance within my career. Some have asked why I felt that I had to stop creating and focus on my career. I don’t know to be honest, it felt that I was forcing myself to come to the terms that I was supposed to be an adult now and stop doodling. Therefore, I became depress and very negative.

That is when I remember that I had blogged before and felt good on what I have created. I first started with one and then created a second one. The other blogs were created to not have everything on just one or two blogs and to have multiple different ones to filter the random incoherent thoughts of my mind. First I stated just to write and therefore didn’t worry about how it looked, but reading books on managing blogs/websites, I figure I start making it look like I know that I am doing (I didn’t know anything). The project to redesign the blogs stopped the writing process and therefore I started to miss my own deadlines that I had planned. Content has never been the issue, it was the editing and making it sound and look good. The last post that I did was on the Moose Tracks blog and that was April 30th and I haven’t written anything since.

              To refuel my passion, I had decided that I was going to find anything to pump the creative juices and be more positive with my situation. Therefore on my search I came across of this…..

             Being a Doctor Who fan I was very happy to see this, but the message was really strong. To be “The Optimist”, is to be someone who expects a favorable outcome. Therefore I would like to see what I created, benefit someone somewhere. To be the “Hoper of Far-Flung Hopes” is to be someone that no matter what, believes in the impossible. The last part, to be the “Dreamer of Improbable Dreams”, means that from now on I will not let anything stop me from creating those dreams. With this message and with a heavy dose of web comics, with Zen pencils,, I have come out alive.

              I turned 30 last week; I only have a small amount of things that I am truly proud of in my life. For the last 3,040 days, I have been married to the most amazingly beautiful, but perfectly complicated woman. Without Mandy and her poetically cuteness, I wouldn’t have anything or gotten this far. She gave me my next reason to be proud, Georgia. Georgie, reminds me to be more playful and to see the world as how it can be magical. I want to show Georgia that in the next 30 years of my life, that I tried and maybe I failed, but I tried. Being a parent is one of the hardest things that I had to experience and I wouldn’t give it up for anything. Know this pumpkin eater; don’t wait to be saved by that hero. The greatest hero in this story is you and if you show the world how, you can save them all.

          Where do I go for now? I will start posting in a month, with taking that time to organize and write. I want to try to see my goals accomplished and if I fail, no matter I will be able to say that I stepped up and did it. Thank you for those who visit my blogs, your support is more than appreciated than you know!

Getting ready for school

This week was very busy for us, as Mandy worked more than normal as there was a start date approaching for her school. Her and Georgia was sick the week before and Georgia had a high fever on Monday. We are still trying to get everything managed in house since Aunt Andie moved in. Thinking of options when we start looking to getting a bigger place this September. One thing that was really neat this week was that we got Georgia all setup for school. Stough Elementary has a great program with teachers that are here on work visa from other countries. This is to learn about America's education system and provide methods from their own education processes. Georgia wasn't too happy that we were there for an open house as she kept claiming that she wasn't five years old, as that was when she was going to start school. This next week is going to be back to the same schedule and as busy it was this week, I can say that we are glad to get back to normal.

Andrea gets OLD!

Hello everyone,

This week we are posting on today as it is a special day, Andie (Andrea) has turned 25. Our Andie was admired in last week’s post as well when she obtained a job at Starbucks. The year was 1988; a gallon of gas was 91 cents. Movie ticket was $3.50 and a dozen of eggs were 65 cents. Movies that were released in 1988! A Fish Called Wanda, Twins, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Beetlejuice and Die Hard. Director, George A. Romero, comedian/actor Rob Corddry and the great Alice Cooper are just some of the famous people that were born on today.
We salute you Andrea Wehrwein for being born!

                This week was a normal week for us as we carried on with the everyday drudge of working in and out of the house.  We found a daycare not far from Amanda’s work, so Georgia can be looked after on Tuesdays. She is really excited about getting to go and we know that she will have fun with the other kids.  We are slowly trying to get everything together for school, as when it comes to moving you normal misplace some items of importance. No big projects this coming week and I am glad as last week we had a pretty big plate full. We had a great time for Super Bowl at Ryan E. Smith’s. Georgia love to be around people and she acquired two new friends Shaun and Chantee, well mostly Shaun as you can see why…

Trying to find more topics for the other blogs and it really isn't the issue of find them, it’s the issue of not writing about the same thing over and over.  Oh well check them out and comment if you want!

Andie has a Job!

Hey everyone!

This last week had gone by so fast and even with that, nothing has really happened. Amanda and I are still working and she is starting to really love her job. Andrea has found a job working at Starbucks and I really excited to start. I think she really missed the days that she doesn't have to watch My Little Pony marathons. We are glad that she was lucky to find a job so fast and hope that our schedules start working out for the best.  

Amanda and I are looking for a way to get Georgia started with preschool soon and start getting into a routine. We are hoping to start Skype with the family on Sundays so we can them more as we didn't get to see as much as we wanted when we were down during Thanksgiving.

This month we had the chance to celebrate Grandma Connie and Uncle Brandon’s birthday. Georgia is starting to really love drawing pictures on the cards before we send them. I am hoping that we can start taking pictures of them and then post them for everyone to start seeing them. This next month I am (Tyler) am going to start my blogging projects. Therefore I will continue the process on making sure that I find some way to link them all together. In addition, this next month is Amanda and I’s eighth anniversary and hoping to do something fun.

See ya Next time,
The Wehrweins

Update, Update, Moose!

Good Day Everyone!

      This is the new Moose Tracks! This blog has been redesigned so now you can know all about what the Wehrweins in North Carolina are up to! Yes I changed the URL to this blog and others.  We are going to try to keep this updated weekly and have a monthly Vlog. Amanda is going to help with writing this as well, she is with Georgia most and gets to experience her "crazy" the most. One of my issues with writing last year was organizing my thoughts and all of the different topics I wanted to write about.

      This year, the Wehrweins are all about choices and to own them! We know that we made the choice to move to North Carolina so I could stay with the company that I was working with. Recently, Amanda has found a job with a great school a little west of us call the Body Therapy Institute. This is the URL in case any of you wanted to check it out, . It is literally on a farm and Amanda has her own office; she is the only one that is doing the financial aid for the school.

      Recently, we have let my sister Andrea come and live with us here, as she wasn't able to find her path in Phoenix with her job skills. We hope for nothing but the best for her and want her to be successful, so we agreed that she would do much better here and hope that she finds what she is looking for. Georgia is especially excited that she is here and she stated that Andrea is her best friend. Manda and Georgia got the chance to celebrate our cousin’s little boy’s birthday yesterday and like always Georgia had herself a smashing time!

     Over the Christmas and New Year’s holidays we had our “Adda” here to spend some time with us at our new place. She was a delight as normal and was very motherly to both Amanda and I on the projects that we needed to accomplish. Georgia was very sad when she had to go back home, as were we, but understand that we will soon see her again in the summer (hopefully).

     Church is going great! This ward is amazing and so inclusive with their new members. Since being here we have been visited by the Elder’s Quorum with the high council, stake presidency, bishopric and of course our Home/visiting teachers.
Other than the normal everyday run of the mill, work and home, we are doing fine. This year we are setting goals and working towards them every day. More of that later... We are starting to adjust to the fact that Amanda is now working and we have only one car. Georgia will soon being starting school in the fall.

     I have started working on other blogs to help organized the mess known as my brain. We all know that I am a Geek and I love, art, music, movies, comics, tech related tools and all the other random stuff that I find mainly through Stumble….. Therefore I have created other blogs to help in the process and I am still setting my goals to when and what I post in them. With this I hope to come to a routine and keep providing my thoughts on anything I want to talk about. I have an itch to scratch when it is coming to this blogging and I want to try to give it my best and see where it takes me. 

See ya Next time,
The Wehrweins
