What Do You Mean Santa’s Not Real!?!?!

December 10, 2010

0

I remember when I could barely sleep. Every night approaching Christmas was difficult. My mind did not waiver from the fact that presents would soon be waiting for me to play with them. And then the longest night of the whole year——–Christmas Eve. The night I practically slept with my eyes open. The night I […]

Auto-Rant: Things I Love To Hate

December 8, 2010

0

These are the things I love to hate related to driving: 1. Tiny cars in a parking space that you think is empty. Ever went flying down a row of occupied parking spaces with your eye on this parking space in the distance? In your heart it’s like water in the desert. Then you reach […]

Social(ed) Out

November 15, 2010

0

I am social(ed) out. I am up to my eyeballs in social networking. Of course by writing this article I’m negating the simple fact that I’m tired of the whole social networking scene. Within the past month or so I’ve been mentally sparring with myself over gracefully bowing out of social networks. I think it’s […]

I Have A Pet Frog….(sorta)

October 15, 2010

0

    About a month ago as I pulled into my garage I saw a green tree frog sitting on the handle of my lawn mower. I immediately knew this would be a creature my wife would not appreciate. Yet, despite knowing her feelings I decided to let the lil guy be. The next day […]

Child—Where’s Your Instruction Manual?

October 14, 2010

0

Who in the world thought it was a good idea to give two grown adults who “think” they have it all together a child!?! Okay, that’s a rhetorical question. Worst part is the child did not come with an instruction manual. Not a single direction. Return address, in case we think we put our order […]

Steering Your Children In The Right Direction

October 11, 2010

I am the proud owner of an 8 month old ball of energy with the determination of a runaway locomotive. Every afternoon I come home and sit down in my living room with my 8 month old son. And every afternoon he crawls directly to the coffee table, pulls himself up, & at least once […]

Real Men Take Out Trash

October 4, 2010

0

When I met the woman of my life (now my wife) in 2002 she lived on the 2nd floor of an apartment building. I noticed several things about her immediately and other things took more time. The more immediate things I noticed was that she was beautiful, joyous, & strong. Not strong like her character, […]

Mourning For A Stranger

October 4, 2010

0

There have not been too many times in my life were I had a heartfelt sadness for someone I never met. Unless they were more like a famous actor/actress or some other type of celebrity. It’s rare that I even mourn them in my mind for long. But this time is different. This time it’s […]

The harsh reality of satellite is a simple equation: Rain + Satellite = Find Something to Do Why on Gods’ green earth this has not prompted me to ditch satellite is something that I may get into later. For now I am a happy satellite owner until torrential rains, thunderstorms, tropical storms, heavy clouds that […]

Regret Failed Relationships

September 20, 2010

0

How many relationships should a person have experienced in a lifetime? How many of those relationships have failed? Should I feel regret for those relationships that have failed? I do not regret failed relationships in my past. Whether a failed friendship or an attempt at a relationship. I can not find it in me to […]

How can I convince my wife to ask me to buy a SUV!?! Seriously, if you know of any ways to get this done that do not involve me losing my life. I’m game! Let me give you a little history first. A good friend of mine acquired a new vehicle and that good friend […]

Vote: Can You Love One Child More Than The Other?

August 5, 2010

2

I was recently watching a family and noticed that one child was constantly ‘acting up’. While the other child was quiet and attentive. Never appearing to do anything outside of the parents wishes. This made me ask a close friend of mine that is a parent. Can you love one child more than the other? […]

Vacation or Bust!!!

August 3, 2010

2

As I slowly recover from the joy of my vacation I can’t help but think how essential vacations are. A vacation is definitely a necessity. Never does a week go by that I don’t think ‘wow, I see my co-workers more than I see my family’. At least as far as hours awake are concerned, […]

Sunset(You) vs Sunrise(I)

July 28, 2010

4

I am a sunrise. My wife is a sunset. That’s my way of saying we are complete opposites. We have always been. I knew it on our very first date. Our first date was at Chili’s restaurant: I was as smooth as they come; like a jungle cat gracefully walking into the restaurant. She was […]

My Double Life

July 23, 2010

1

As good as my life is I can’t help but wonder about my other life. The life I almost had. The life that fate took away from me with the death of my Father. I constantly wonder what could have been. What college would I have attended? What state would I currently be living in? […]
