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.

I will decide on a title for this entry once it is completed.  I really don't know where to begin.  It has been so long since I have made an entry revealing the latest happenings of my life or thoughts in my brain, it's just so much clutter!  But enough about me, how is everyone doing?!!

First I will say, I you haven't heard of Kevin Hart, please do yourself a favor and check him out.  I don't work for his promotional team, so I am not getting paid for this endorsement (I know, silly, right?) but I really think he is a funny lil dude.  I went with the wife and my sister to Columbia, SC to catch his show a few weeks back and had a blast.  "Columbia, SC"!?,you say; "What the heck did you go up there for?  I know he did a show in Atlanta!!" Well, to you I say, "Yes , he did a show in Atlanta but we missed it because it was close to Christmas and when you have children, you kinda put them first and make sure they have a wonderful Christmas instead of spending money on a comedy show." (I don't know why I can not get rid of this italics style . . . I have clicked that little button a million times and keep hitting crtl+i but it's not working!!!!!)

Well, now that's over.  As I said this guy is really hilarious and other than the venue being overcrowded, hot, and the seats being entirely tooo close- we all had a great time.  


So I just found out the other day my younger cousin signed to Tennessee to play football!  I am not a huge UT fan but, I support my family.  He was the #2 athlete in the state as far a recruiting goes, so this was a big move for him and a hard decision for him to make ( glad he decided to keep it in the SEC and especially in Tenn.).  So be on the lookout for Cameron Clear, (6'6", 265lbs) normally he's played OT but he feels more comfortable and has confidence in his hands to play TE.  Go Vols!!


Well, we are still looking for a house and although everyone says this is the perfect time ( and I really do not disagree), I am overwhelmed with the selection and kinda wish we only had 3 house to pick from.  The wife is looking for certain things and so am I but I believe she wants more than I do.  I mean I am willing to do the work to get the house to look the way we want it to look.  She seems to want a "turn-key" situation with the perfect kitchen and bathroom.  All I need is the proper layout, square footage and a basement (with three females, I believe I deserve my own "man cave").   I will keep you guys posted on things as they progress, but with all the factors we have to consider (schools, commute, whether it is close to Publix or not) this might take a while. 

Now I know why I haven't been blogging as much lately. . . . NO TIME!!  It's crazy, now that I have additional responsibilities at work ( I am now doing the job of my former manager from two years ago-he was recently relieved of his duties) and video gaming (I have become addicted to COD: Black Ops), trying to take the load off the wife by taking care of the girls and making every effort to read more (at night before bed); being on the computer or mobile blogging is more of a luxury!!  I know I have neglected my ever so small following but I apologize. Please charge it to my head, not my heart.  Of course there are women out there reading this and saying  . . ."blah, blah, yadda, yadda, yadda . .. busy!?!?  I can do all that and still keep up with my blogging and more!!!"  Well, to that I say, "good for you!!!  I don't really care what you can do . . . it has no affect on my life or taking any load off my back, so BACK OFF!!"  Whew, that felt great. 

I was going to type a heartfelt warming message to send everyone off in a great mood, especially with the snow, freezing rain, normal rain and other crazy precipitation that half of the country is experiencing; but instead I will leave you with this . . . 

Title: Things I Haven't Told You Since My Last Post

Friday, January 21, 2011

Like oil and water

It has been a long time since I have submitted an entry and allowed y'all into my life. That doesn't mean I haven't started and deleted multiple blogs for fear of not being interesting enough or just not being.g inspired past the first couple of sentences, because I have. I also have been extremely busy at work and during Snowpocalypse 2011, I took that as a sign from God (and GDOT) to just chill out and spend time with my family.

Well I will make this short because it is a mobile-blog and I have been drinking (that means excuse some of the T9 "typos"). After all this talk about the illuminati (no caps because I refuse to give it substance), I decided to pull out a the book a friend gave me eons ago pertaining to that topic and see what all the fuss is about. Ok, you are right, it took eons for me to read a book, but I am getting better, I promise. Anyway, as you cansee by the photo that hopefully attached itself above, I am also having a date with my girl Jackie. I am not overboard in my conspiracy theory concoctions but I am that Guy in some groups. I just tend to keep quiet a lot. Thus the fitting title to this entry. I dont need anything else to make me think deeper than I do and believe there are alternative reasons for things that happen in society other than what is revealed. I will say Jackie is really making me think extra hard about continuing this date with her or tossing this book back in storage.

Some things just don't mix well.

In other news . . .

So this morning, I went in for the second half of my dental tooth excavation and of course it was decent.  I think the lil red head has a thing for me but she's too afraid to admit it.  Maybe it's because she knows I'm married and my wife would beat her ass or maybe it's because she is possibly married and doesn't want her husband to feel in adequate or maybe it's just my imagination because I have a "thing" for red heads. 


So yesterday, the Titans decided to cut their ties with their former starting QB Vince Young.  I don't know if I am happy about this decision of not.  I can understand the logic behind the decision, because no player should ever be given the illusion that he or she is bigger than the team or even the coach. VY does have a lot of growing up and maturing to do and I hope he takes this loss of his job as the time to "snap out of it".  On the other hand, the Titans do not have a QB or even a viable option for a starting QB on their roster.  It is almost like they are cutting off the hand to spite the thumb . . . you follow?  Also, I'm not even sure if I am too comfortable with Fisher (HC) remaining in that position with the same "run first" mentality. I mean, what decent QB will come to your team and try to do his best if he knows you don't care about accuracy, yards, TDs v. INTs or even a QB rating as long as your RB gets over 50 75 touches per game?   And don't let me begin to speak about the lack of use of Mr. Randy Moss ( I refer to him formally because he is a great player) . . . I said I would keep y'all posted on this Tennessee Titans fiasco as it unfolds but I'm getting discouraged.  

Oh well . . .

Are you kidding me?!?!

KE has left the building!  I don't know why he left this time, sick, hangover, warrants- who knows!?  Alls I know is he is gone.  Now, I know we aren't currently super busy in the warehouse but, why not just stick it out and organize (i'm a stickler)?  I need to investigate his "sick time" and see how he maintains a neverending stream of it . . . someone suggested he and my manager have a thang goin on.   If they do, I need evidence so I can blackmail them and use it to my advantage.  I could be getting free lunches, breakfast, half-days, whole days, random gifts, etc.  This is something I really need to investigate.  BTW:  It stinks to high hell in here.  ML (manager lady) just heated up a bucket of cauliflower and there is no fresh air to help with the smell.



It feels like it has been so long since my last post.  I have been kinda busy at work and getting back in the swing of things.  I guess I can say there has been nothing much on my mind or nothing remotely exciting occurring in my life since the last post . . . oh, there was the NY party.  It went well, I don't have pics or funny stories other than the pineapple-infused vodka being the life of the party.  Most of my time has been spent catching up at work and playing Black Ops.  I'm not even sure if I will publish this post or not.  It is almost like I am letting the few people that read my blog down by not giving them more excitement or just more random crap that makes me who I am.  The wife mentioned starting a blog last week but I don't think she will do it.  Not that I don't feel she can, I just don't see her spending MORE time in front of a computer when she doesn't have to- she doesn't tweet, FB or even Google (JK!). 

Well, the Titans' season is over and now the big question is, who will lose their job first- Jeff Fisher or Vince Young.  I would prefer to see Fisher leave because at times I believe you need fresh minds and thoughts when it comes to sports- especially if the current mindset ain't producing massive amounts of Super Bowl wins (i.e. Coach Belichick).  But I also believe if the Titans' release or even trade VY, he will go to a different coaching system and shine (not like Vick) but better than he has been allowed to play over the past 5 years with TN.  Call me a selfish fan, SO WHAT!!  YOU WANNA MAKE SUMTHIN OF IT?!?!  I would love to keep both guys and have them both grow the fcuk up and do what ever it takes to win the game.  Is that too much to ask?  Well, I guess I can keep y'all posted on that as it unfolds.  Oh, I also learned next season (if it doesn't suffer a lockout-which it probably will because I don't want it to), the Falcons will host the Titans in the dome!! How cool is that?  I will have to get tickets early because I believe it will sell-out regardless of what happens with TN. 

Wow, this turned out to be longer than I expected.  I guess that's what blogging is all about.  Question:  I got a lil bag (not sure what the proper name for it) for Christmas as a gift from the wife.  It came with Ferragamo (sp.) cologne, which I had never worn but I like.  Well, anyway, I keep my hair clippers, brush, deo, and other random bathroom crap in it and it keeps it organize (I'm a stickler for organization).  Do women prefer a man to be well groomed or unkept?  ( I know I'm married and it doesn't matter what other women think- it's just a question)

Now back to your regularly visited blogs (pimp me, please-if you feel I'm worthy).

Season STILL ain't over!!
