I'm Back!

After about three straight months of pure scheduling mayhem I have finally arrived at a time where I can sit down, think for a moment, and realize that it's not going to get any easier!

So, I've made up my mind to return to my blog and my loyal readers, come what-may.

Thanks to the dedicated updates from Stephen and Jacqueline, everyone should be well aware of the happenings of the larger faction of the Bittner clan.

I, on the other hand, have much explaining to do.

To bring everyone up to speed, I completed my third session in the Senate during the same week the movers packed away all of the family stuff.Our biggest accomplishment this year was to finaly pass a law to tighten a loop hole regarding sex offenders. After three years of work, we finaly did it! You can read, and watch, the story here and here.

After that I was hosted at the Rowlands home for a week. During that week my family and I said our goodbyes to each other and I remained behind.

With about five days left of "free time" before I had to head down to Vancouver for my new job, I hurriedly worked with the rest of the GP Crew and organized an insane 4 different film shoots. Somehow we pulled them off thanks to the amazing coordination from many different volunteers.

I then headed down south to my new home in Washougal, and my new job in Vancouver. I have been graciously welcomed into the home of Jon and Sarah Russel for the extent of the elections. I am becoming welcomed by their 2 year old daughter, Eve, who I think is leaning towards liking me.

I now split my work day working for a national consulting group as an executive assistant to the president/national consultant, and also working as the senate campaign manager for the same guy. He is the Senator I have been working for in the Senate for the past three years.

The campaign has been very interesting so far as well as the consulting work. I will be sharing those interesting tid bits in the days to come.

So, that pretty much brings everyone up to speed to where I'm at (with the exception of a few details).

I have recently taken a liking to the ever popular, private social networking site, Facebook. I have many pictures and updates that are there that I probably won't post on this public blog, just because I'd rather not share them with un-friendy's of the campaign, such as local newspapers, that are just waiting to find out things that could be used as cannon fodder.

So....if you don't have an account you should at least check out the site and see how many folks you know are already there (I should be getting paid by Facebook for this).

That's all for now! I'll be back! Sooner!

Hey Daniel,

Good to have you back in the land of the blogging.

Looking forward to updates on the extremely busy life of Daniel B, Exq.

*you have been poked*

(I couldn't find the "poke" button... and I didn't know what to do. So I made my own.)

I like the new header/title/blog name thing.

Stephen B said...

Nice template.

Looking forward to hearing about some interesting door-belling experiences, of which I am sure there will be several.

Brian said...

Welcome back! Though I am willing to bet approximately 18,000 dollars it will be at least a month before you do another post, as well intentioned as this one may sound.

You will forever be posting these "quick updates" to get everyone "up to speed" with the promise of "posting more soon", but it will never happen. Admit it!!

I like the new look:)
glad to see that you finally have some time to write.
Please post on the wedding.
Love you!
Princess M.

The house bill sounds like a victory and I am so excited you are helping make the world sagfer.
Keep it up.
