Gongey’s BlogDescribing the Indescribable World of The Gongey

All things Gongey

A Gongey is a special being. Having been created in the fiery furnaces of hell...wait...let me start over.
Back when collars were huge and pants were in the shape of bells I was born. The year was 1977. After 10 long months of gestation I was ready to join the world and make my contribution.
This blog is a record of my life. Good, bad and generally mundane!


Elias is doing great.  He is climbing and exploring like mad.  He took a tumble off our night stand the other day.  He was so intent on flicking the light switch on and off that he took a header off the side!  Luckily it wasn’t too far of a drop.  Bonked his head a little.  He got over it quickly once he discovered that he could climb on something else!

He is saying and signing quite a few words now.  It’s really exciting to see his vocabulary grow.  I was putting on my shoes the other day when he started saying “shoo” and making the sign for shoes.  I was excited!  He picks up so much from the Signing Time videos it’s crazy.

Mary and I have been trying to teach him to kiss off and on for a while.  Just today he started giving us kisses!  It’s the coolest thing in the world.

Mary and I have also been discussing when we are going to start on our second kid.  I have to say I am nervous and scared.  I have no idea how I am going to support the growing family.  But, I have to do it.  I know things will work out.  It’s still scary!
We are thinking of starting for kid #2 in December.


It’s been a rough week and a half.  All of last week I spent my work days moving and clearing out the warehouse and offices of our 1145 S. 1680 W. location.  Man my back is sore!  You never realize how much CRAP you accumulate until you have to move.  There was a load of junk, useless items and other filth that just piled up.  I think there was some stuff that someone had the good intention of repairing, but they must have forgotten about it.

I moved 4 different loads of pallet racking.  Pallet racks aren’t too heavy at the start of the day.  As the day progresses they seem to increase in weight!  Those stupid things are awkward and a pain to take down.  Luckily I had help on the last couple of runs to the new warehouse.

The new location is now 1273 N. State St., Orem.  I think once we get settled and unpacked we will start increasing business.  Having a State St. location is going to be very good for brand exposure.  It will be nice to start getting more sales for Natural Edge.

    I am still working with that guy, just at reduced hours. Which is good because it gives me time to catch up on my side projects.
