I DID IT!!!!!

All the training and incessant running paid off, I finished my first Half Marathon in 2 hours (well 2hrs and 2min). Next up, my first sprint triathlon - but I don't. really know how to swim. Yet.

Sometimes letting go is hard . . .

I don't know the basis for this post (well, i do but i can't explain it), but i'm sure we all have had to let go of something that we did not want to  . . . well me too.

This picture depicts both of the issues that must be let go.

It might seem easy at first . . .

Sometimes this is all we need to do . . .

You may not believe it but you might be better off.

Just wanted to throw this in for Ss & Gs.

Writing is can make it easier (not really)

Aaaaarrrrgh, Netflix . . . not again!

This is EXACTLY how I feel about the price increase.

I'm baaaaaaaack (well, for a little while)

I know it has been a minute since I have graced these pages with my thoughts but, I will do better.  I am not saying it will be epic (overused word) but it will be more often than before.  
Until, next time . ..

Sanity lost and restored.

A few days ago I was helping a friend of mine move furniture and an appliance. Yeah, sounds a bit much but it wasn't bad. Well, he is the proud father of three children, two of them being boys. I started thinking, damn, I wouldn't mind raising a lil dude to be a man. . . Then I thought about the financial responsibility that comes with having a newborn, infant and toddler. As much as I would love to have slip dude, who's to say it wouldn't be another girl!?! For now, I will just stick with raising my daughters and dealing with all that's involved with them.

Another child?! What was I thinking! ?

Greatest Dad Ever?

Boots lost her tooth at school Tuesday afternoon and was SO excited. Not because it has been loose for so long but, because contrary to popular belief, she still believes in the Tooth Fairy. This meant another visit for sure!(??)

Well, Wednesday morning comes and the TF didn't make a visit the night before!! At first, it was shock and disbelief from Boots. Being the Dad I am, I calmed her fears by telling her the TF took a sick day and would make up for it the next night. Yes, of course that was a lie but she was starting to get disappointed. I had to think fast. She asked m how did I know the TF was sick and I told her she sent me an E-mail!

So, we wake up this morning and,you guesed it, no TF again! I know, I know, we suck as parents. Who cares what you think, the TF isn't real anyway! But I can't tell Boots that,yet so I told her the TF was took a vacation day and would most def make it up tonight. Her response? "Why couldn't one of the other TFs just cover for her? " I admit I was stumped at her cleverness but quickly responded it was a territory issue. The Alpharetta TF can't go to another area to cover a friends territory and they just have to work harder to make it up when they return- whew!

Tonight, we have to make sure the TF visits because I'm running out of excuses and I don't want to loose my Greatest Dad Ever status so soon.

True Gratitude

As much as I despise the day that is celebrated by many as Valentine's Day, I felt compelled to "do something" for the ladies in my life- even if it's just so they won't feel left out by comparison.  Well, yesterday was no different, and before you run off and scream "I DON'T WANT TO READ ANOTHER SAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY BLOG!!",  this will not be long, nor sappy. 

I made dinner for the wife and girls ( nothing special, I cook all the time).  But the thing that really made me smile and feel good about yesterday was when my youngest daughter saw the balloon I got for her and actually tried to jump (she actually has a 1/2 inch vertical now) and get it out of the air.  Not only that but, she ate all of her food!  I should have taken a picture of her stuffing her little hand in her mouth to get all of the sauce off the linguine afterwards; using the napkin she was cleaning her hands with, to pick up more pasta and stuff in her mouth.  Additionally, the oldest (Boots), made a statement that made me proud to be a father . . . "Daddy is so nice for doing all of this for us, we should do something for him", it may not seem like much but it worked for me. 

I am telling you all of this to say, I am glad I was able to provide the girls in my life (and the wife) with that type of  foundation for what they should expect from any hopeful in their life many years to come.  I mean I hate that I am setting this precedent, because I feel the day is such a rip-off for any male that is in a relationship, trying to get in a relationship or anything of that nature but- nothing is too good for my daughters.
