FRIDAYS FINAL THOUGHTS
Today is kind of a weird day for me. It was a year ago today that I had two coworkers shot and one killed on the spot during a repo. Crazy, I can still remember getting the call from one of the other drivers that morning on my way to work. All over a Mustang. A lot has happened since then and I wont go into it, its just too much of a mess.
Brandon the guy that was killed, had a wife and two young kids. Going to his funeral and seeing his wife and kids, really messed me up for a long time. Thinking about it now, it still makes me want to cry. His son and daughter, left without a dad, for a stupid car.
A video was done in memory of Brandon
Now time for some happy thoughts
I have a good feeling that this is going to be a great weekend. We have no plans, no where to go, so that means I can get a lot of stuff done around the house. The weather is going to be decent so I can work a little outside while the kids play, the kids also want to do some lego building and some drawing. I also think it is going to be the time where I get all of the Christmas decorations pulled toward the front of the storage room and look with T to see what gifts we already have for the C's this year.
So let me get some thoughts off my chest here and I am going to start with
Sarah Palin, yes really. She has a Reality Show coming on TLC. All I can say to that is thank god we canceled some channels and lost TLC. I dont even want to have the chance to land on that channel when she is on. Am I the only one who is sick of her and doesnt care about her PR move to make her look like something she isnt. Wait let me guess, the show will be scripted on her hands so she wont forget what to say!!!!
Next. Spanking. Molly at The Snyder5 did a post the other day on this topic and her post bothered me. It bothered me for the simple fact that some people still cant seem to get over the fact that spanking a child really wont do any good. Now that is my opinion and apparently a lot of people in the US disagree. Because this spanking poll taken, show that by a 2 to 1 margin that most approve of spanking. Go ahead, HIT your child, yes I said it HIT your child and see if it teaches them anything other than hitting is ok. T and I dont spank, I will never put hands to my kids in that manner. And I will be the one in a public place that if I see you do, I will say something.
For some of you that might have missed the CMA's the other night, let me fill you in on a quick fact...Gwyneth Paltrow can not sing.
Let me tell you how great my wife is. With all the stuff she has to do on a daily and nightly basis, she took time to go to the tv and set it on the channel for the Falcons-Ravens game last night and then pause it for me so I could watch it from beginning to end after the kids were in bed. And she even let me give her the massage I owed her while WE watched the game together. AND she didnt even yell at me last night or this morning when she fell asleep and I jumped out of bed, threw my hat and cursed and screamed as the Falcons let the Ravens score with a minute left. She then let me wake her again and put her glasses on so she could see the Falcons score a game winning TD with 20 seconds left.
Time for some good ol football picks.
Ok so I have really picked some stinkers here the past few weeks, sorry.
Lets see if I can turn it around.
(winners in bold)
Miami-3 @ Georgia Tech - Both teams without starting qb's, Tech has a better running game and its at home.
Auburn(home)-8.5 vs. Georgia - Cant stand the Bulldogs and as long as Cam Newton is playing, Tigers win by more than 10 points.
Utah-5.5 @ Notre Dame - The Utes get back on track after getting smoked last weekend.
NY Jets-3 @ Cleveland - Sorry Colt McCoy, the Jets D makes you look bad this week.
Buffalo(home)-3 vs. Detroit - Both teams can score, the Lions will score just a bit more.
Pittsburgh(home)-5 vs. New England - Tom Brady doesn't lose many back to back games.
Look, I know I usually talk a lot of trash and blog about a lot of silly stuff, but make sure you start this weekend to make a difference. Teach your kids, have fun with them, try new things, and most of all love them. Love your wives and husbands too. Remember its all about being a team. We all need each other and we need the kids to make us feel great again.
What is one thing you can do differently this weekend to make a positive impact on your kids?
And the same thing for your spouse. What can you do to make your spouse smile this weekend?
Have a great weekend.
KISS THE BABY
