Really this is a GOOD thing.

A 24 hour business can be a drag.
The thing about working in a 24 hour business is that there is no time that you can expect to not be contacted about something. Usually it’s bad news. Or, in this case, just news that will keep me from sleeping peacefully tonight and being a big ball of stress until morning.
K: Today I was wiping J's butt and he asked me if I wanted to see his poop.
Me: Did you?
K: No! Anyway he said I should look at his poop because it was 'organized'.
Me: He said 'organized'?
K: Yes, 'organized'.
Me: I couldn't be more proud. 3 years old and he's already got his shit together.
Me: (Big cheesy grin).
Dear 12 year old me...
Boobs are even cooler than you think. Other than that, carry on and be excellent to each other.
And yet another thing that makes me wish I didn't...
My daughter (5) came into our room this morning at 5:30am. She crawled into bed with a fever. It was like lying next to a fire. She had shots yesterday so this was to be expected. We made it out of bed around 7:30. She stayed in our bed and watched cartoons. She was quiet and quite the opposite of her normal self. A short time ago I was in the back yard and she came out. At the same moment she...
I'm being social.
We’ve lived in this home for 10 months. When first we moved in there was a family that we went to church with that invited us over a number of times in an attempt to get to know us better. I consistently declined their invitations until it reached the point that they didn’t invite us anymore. I am an asshole. No, I just struggle with saying yes to social situations even though they...
sarijw: How much would you pay for the universe? This video is beautiful. And horrifying. And sad. And one of the loveliest things I’ve ever seen. The more internally we look, the more we are dooming ourselves (and our children.) We need to look beyond ourselves to rescue ourselves.
I’m new to the whole Parks and Recreation thing. That being said….I’ve never wanted to be a fictional character as badly as I want to be Ron Swanson.

Truthful Marriage Tuesday
Two Memes in one! Today I sent a text to my wife and she responded by completely ignoring my text and telling me that she was super mad at me. This has occurred before so I asked her what I did to her in her dream. She then responded ‘The Kids are T E R R I B L E’ today’. Things had quieted sufficiently at work and I was able to go to her rescue. I went home and told the...
There is a lonely burrito...
Sitting on my desk. I had purchased this collection of ingredients from a truck. I’m sure it’s delicious and sad. Sad because it was purchased to be consumed, but now? Now it sits alone on my desk while I stand by a tow truck. Fear not Asada burrito! I will return and consume you.
A simpler way of living.
I’ve been attempting to lead a simpler life. I have been spending less time in the car and more time on a bike. It limits me in some ways but I’ve noticed that I’m happier seeing my town from the saddle than I am from the seat. I’ve noticed that I have more of an interest in the world immediately surrounding me. Were my days not so long I would seriously consider walking...
ladybugjug replied to your post: Dear Brussel Sprouts I have a strange, baseless aversion to them, but they grow well in my area. How do you prepare them? Are yours local-grown? They are a delight and so very easy to prepare.

Dear Brussel Sprouts
I freaking love you so hard.
Today, one of my people went to Starbucks and asked me if I wanted something. I declined as I always do. Later as they were drinking their Black Tea and asked me if I had ever had it. I responded in the negative and they proceeded to detail to me how good it was and recommended that* *I should try it. I stopped them in their enthusiasm and let them know that in all likelihood I would probably...
Things that I enjoy about marriage
Tonight I put Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in the DVD player and noticed the rolling of Katies eyes. 10 minutes in she still hadn’t walked away. I enjoy this because on paper my wife and I have absolutely nothing in common. I like to think of it more as we just are in the process of discovering things we know the other would like.
Well, I guess thats what I'll do.
My operation is being audited right now. Since I know most of my ducks are in a row I basically just sit at my computer with the auditors and write a young adult novel that no one will ever read while the auditors devour my documentation.
The saddest thing.
Last night Katie and I were watching The Voice. Now, I have a general disdain for most musical competition reality shows but I have enjoyed this one mostly due to the lack of belittling audition shows, my fascination with Cee-Lo and my man crush on Blake Shelton. Christina Aguilera scares the hell out me. I digress. Last night Katie and I were watching The Voice. One of the final...
When I see Christina I go ewwww. What scares me is that some people see...– Katiescountdown Whilst watching The Voice
You've got a good thing going. Don't screw it up.
One day does not a trend make. This I know but it’s easy for me to get a little excited over the day I’m having today. I started the day unhappily by not getting much sleep last night. My son decided to have a few nightmares and, when we allowed him in our bed, decided to practice Kung Fu. When it was time for me to get up I stepped on the scale. That will do wonders for your...
A wish before sleep.
I wake most days 3 and a half hours before my wife and am gone 3 hours before she wakes. Weekends I struggle to stay in bed until she wakes. Today I made it. She woke and smiled and started talking about her dreams. Spooning with my wife talking first thing in the morning is my favorite thing. We got 7 minutes before the kids woke. My wish is for 10 minutes tomorrow.
I plead the fifth.
