Rob's Journal

Sunday, February 29, 2004 ...... My thanks go to those of you who have patiently waited and stayed with me while the journal was not updated. The past three months of my life have been like a rollercoaster, both in terms of events and emotions. My dad passed away early on the morning of November 9, from complications of a heart attack. He was 73. There are still times when I can hear his voice and see him sitting in the living room, or at his workbench, or walking in the front yard. I continually wonder what his advice to me would be now, and take comfort in the close relationship which we had for 45 years. Six days after he died, I took the Praxis 2 exam to be licensed by the state to teach Special Education, with a concentration in Learning Disabilities. Five weeks and five days later, my scores came back and I surpassed the minimum needed for the 2 tests which I had to take. Two weeks ago, I went back to Winston-Salem State and was told that my scores were the highest that they had seen in two years. My collie, Lucy, is now 6 months old. She weighs around 50 pounds and is an outside dog, by her choice and mine. She is spoiled to daily treats, table food and her dog run. Classes this semester are going well, with the exception of all of the snow. Locally, at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, they report in excess of 12-13 inches of snow thus far, with the almanac promising 2 more events in March. Our spring break week has now been trimmed to Good Friday and Easter Monday, with the promise of Saturday school should we have to miss any more days. There is a very special lady in my life these days. Her name is Charly and the last week in January we celebrated our 6 month anniversary. I am very grateful that she is a part of my life. We listen to each other and have come to have a mutual feeling of caring and love. Despite the journal not being updated, the website has, specifically the Wrestling Bodyslam site. In many ways, updating that site on a daily basis has helped me to maintain a positive focus over the past few months. Thank you again for your patience and concern. Life has ways of going on. Thank you for being with me here at David Roberson . Com.
