Fridays Final Thoughts 11-19-10.........A-Hole Free Weekend(Yes that means me)

This Daddy's Blog


Man, I am so glad Friday is here.  I can think of a million things I would rather be doing right at this moment but I guess the job needs me to be here.  So I will make the best of it and do what I do best while I am at work.  Do my blog, read other blogs, surf the net, look at stuff for the kids for Christmas and bother the wife while she is at home doing home schooling.  Until she makes her Yahoo Im'er busy!!!

So T noticed something very funny yesterday morning when she got up early.  I should have gotten pictures but I didn't. So C3 was sleeping in our bed and she had her hands above her head and T noticed that she had gloves on her hands.  Little pink gloves on her hands.  Guess she was cold.

I have to remember to do something today for C3.  She has been on me to print her out some Zhu Zhu pet coloring sheets.  So before I leave today, someone please remind me to print out some sheets for her.  Thanks.

C1 and C2 want more Toy Story 3 Lego Coloring sheets. 

T and I are thinking about having another in house date night.  I need some movie suggestions.  In the past weeks we have seen, Karate Kid, Date Night, Grown Ups.  I need some good calls here.  She doesn't like blood and guts or sci fi.  I need more of a comedy and or (sigh) love story.

Lets see.  I am going to beg T to cook, Artichokes, Cabbage, and some Scallops this weekend. 
If she fixes that for me, she will get an extra special 15 minute rub.
Actually, if she gets some stuff for the boiler, I will hook it up and go to town.

This weekend honey we WILL go through all of the Christmas stuff to see what we have and if we need anything else.

I will be cleaning the ceiling fans. I will be spraying for bugs all over the house.  I will be doing whatever is on my honey-do list. 

Another reason I am glad it is Friday, I get another chance tonight to be a nice daddy.  For some reason last night I had NO patience.  I don't what the deal was. The kids wouldn't listen to me, I mean I know it was me and not them, but I need to go home tonight and relax and just let it be. The house will be A-hole free this weekend.

I think part of it may be that I am falling back into the same hole where I am bringing the negativity from work home.   I do this sometimes.  I mean, my boss' are negative, and that gives me no reason to be positive here at work.  We had pay cuts a while back and I lost a lot of money since the company was not doing good.  Well now that the company has started to pick back up, have I seen any of my money back? NO.  They said we would, but its all lies. Im at work from 8:45 a.m. to to after 8 p.m. every night and I sit at my desk and eat lunch and I never miss work. I even come in if I am sick, since we get NO sick days. And after 8 years of working here, you would think I would get more than 1 week paid vacation..NO.  No benefits either, so I have no health insurance. Neither does T.  I just need to tell myself over and over again that I am here to provide for us as a family so T and the kids can stay at home.

I know it is no excuse but to T and my C's, I am sorry for being an A-Hole the past few nights.

Ok so football picks.
I got back on track last weekend winning some games and I actually won the office pool.
Bet your house with me this weekend.
(yes your actual house)
(winners in bold)

Boise State(home)-30.5 vs. Fresno State - At home on the blue turf. The Bronco's cover the big number.
Penn State-10 @ Indiana - Penn St. has a young qb. No way they cover the 10 at Ind.
Florida State-4.5 @ Maryland - Yes Maryland it is basketball season. Be thankful. FSU covers big.

Atlanta-3 @ St. Louis - Sorry Rams this is the Falcons year.  Even a W by a Td. covers the points.
Baltimore-10 @ Carolina - Baltimore had 10 days off and Carolina is using a stay at home dad as qb.
New England(home)-3 vs. Indianapolis - I like both teams but Tom and the Pats are at home.

 I am interested in hearing anyone else's big game predictions.  Or what big plans do you all have this weekend?

Also, can anyone in the entire reading area of the world tell me where I can find some organic strawberries?  See C2 eats strawberries and that is all he really loves and guess what?  They are out of season and we cant find them anywhere......I NEED SOME GOSH DOGIT ORGANIC STRAWBERRIES!!!

Thanks and

I'm so glad that Friday is here too.

This weekend our Civil Air Patrol squadron is going to Pueblo for a rocket launch. We built a huge rocket years ago called the VVII and this will be the 3rd year it's launched along with all the other 1st and 2nd stage rockets anyone built.

Have a fabulous weekend!

Me, my hubby, sister & brother in law are giving my parents an "extreme makeover kitchen edition" this weekend (starting tonight) and will be remodeling their entire kitchen in 48 hours! That includes new hardwood flooring, too. We are hoping Ty Pennington stops by on his way from Savannah...HAHA! It will be lots of work but tons of fun and we can't wait to show them their new kitchen Sunday.

And don't forget those Zhu Zhu coloring pages!

So nice of you to acknowledge that you haven't been a nice guy...but even dads are allowed some slack. When you are the family provider, and you do it in such a way that allows your family to be home together, you can have a lot of stress. My husband gets that way too sometimes.

Do something you love to decompress. And just keep remembering what a wonderful thing you are doing for all of you! Not just them :)
