A New Adventure

March 6, 2013

Well, loyal followers (all one of you), it’s almost time for me to start a new adventure: Fatherhood. It’s an exciting time for us in our household. Yesterday, we cleaned up a lot of the baby’s room and it made both of us feel better and less stressed. I just can’t wait until he gets here.

Looking forward to meeting him.


Triumphant Return

July 15, 2011

I’m back!!!  It’s been a few years since I’ve posted, and I apologize.  Things that have happened:  Got divorced.  Moved to Texas.  Got a job at BlackBerry.  Met some women.  Drank beers, lots of them.  That’s pretty much it.  Now if I could only find someone to help me steal horses.

Feels good to be free again.

Emotional Distress

April 13, 2008

I know I hate emo, but I figured I’d post about some emotions that I’m going through.  First of all, the Veterans’ Administration seems to have misplaced ALL records showing that I was in Iraq and won’t update my disability for PTSD.  On top of that, I love too many women.  I find myself wondering “what if” too often and I don’t know what to do about it.  Perhaps Yuen, my “sister”/psychologist will know.  Shit has hit the fan this week, and I don’t much like it.  On the upside, Gin is good.

Shit goes in the toilet, not on the fan.

Trip to Florida

November 6, 2006

So this past week, my wife and I went to Florida to visit my mother.  All in all, the trip was good.  We basically just hung out at the beach and at my mom’s house.  Betsy was satisfied with the overall vacation, so I’m happy.

 We were a mere hour and a half from Tampa, FL which is where my dad lives, yet he couldn’t take the time to come visit me.  My own father made an excuse that he “had to work” rather than visit his oldest son.  I could understand if it was more than just a two-hour drive, but c’mon.  I’m starting to sound like an emo kid so I think I’ll stop here.

Die, emo kid, die.


October 17, 2006

   So I haven’t written in a while, partly because I’ve had a few projects due in school, and partly because I’ve been lazy.  So here I am again, the load has been lifted.  I’d like to make a shout out to all my peeps who read this (thanks, Chris), and as soon as I’m able to drink again (stupid tuberculosis medecine), I’ll pour out some for my homies.

I’m also learning to categorize.  There’s a lot of new stuff that I’ve been working with, so I’m trying to take it all in. Please bear with me.

One day, I’ll be a master at all of it.

The Trip

October 2, 2006

So my wife and I had the notion to go down to Tennessee this weekend to visit my grandparents. We had originally thought it to be a five hour drive, but it was actually eight. On the way down, there was an enormous smudge on the windshield right at eye-level of the driver. The thing is: each time we stopped, we forgot to clean the smudge and it stayed until we were on our return trip.

While in Tennessee, we visited with my grandparents. We played Scrabble against the self-proclaimed “Champ” (my grandfather), and his proclaimation was just, since he beat us by a decent margin every game. I vowed to him that I would beat him next time we came down, so I better get started reading the dictionary.

My dad had just returned from Tampa where his new girlfriend lives. I think she’s a much better fit for him and my younger siblings than their mother. Back on topic, I got to see my dad while I was down there as well. I finally got to tell him how I felt about how he acted when I was younger and I think he finally got the point. I just don’t want my younger siblings to go through what my brother, Andrew, and I had to go through.

I think Dad will be in a much better situation in Tampa with Barbara. She’s a much better fit for him, and she doesn’t take his crap either.

All in all, the trip was good. We had a pancake breakfast on Sunday at my Aunt Susie’s house and we got to see most of my aunts (since I don’t have any uncles on my dad’s side).

Great trip, can’t wait to go again.
