Fridays Final Thoughts 7-30-10 and 5 Question Friday

This Daddy's Blog

FRIDAYS FINAL THOUGHTS

To those of you that made today Friday I thank you.  It is about time you got here.

To my wife that read or pretended to read all of my IM's on yahoo yesterday, while I vented and bitched and moaned about being a F-ing loser that is too lazy to work out - Thank you for being a pain in my ass last night and getting me to work out before bed.  Keep it up babe, keep being a pain in my ass.

I actually had a good workout and I slept so good that I didn't even realize that C3 came into our bed and had an accident.  Sorry bout that.

I told T that I want to color my hair and do something crazy, maybe a white or something like that. Last time I tried this I went jet black, but it ended up looking purple.  I am going to get her to trim up the beard and shape me up good.  GQ me.

Ok and as I am writing this here on Friday morning, I keep getting hammered by stupid fucking comments and questions by 2 people. And to those 2 people all I have to say is
Ok, thats all the negative shit I have for today.

I am so ready to get some shit done this weekend.  I have a movie to watch, Shutter Island, that I have been trying to watch for 3 weeks now.  I am going to get the (many) tubs of clothes out for T to go through for the kids consignment sale, which means taking everything out of the storage room and then making it clean and neat again. (for at least a week or two).  I am stopping on the way home tonight to get some lag screws so I can FINALLY finish fixing the fence.  Yard work. Sand the wall in the bathroom and paint it (again, from screwing up the wall, again)  I am sure there are many more things to do, so guess I will see what happens.

The Atlanta Falcons training camp opens this weekend.....ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL?  I AM. Oh but get this, if your team is playing the Falcons, go ahead and put that game in the L column.  Matt (Matty Ice) Ryan is leading the train and the train is coming for you and it doesn't plan on stopping.  Falcons will be in Dallas in February.

I had a good talk with C2 last night after we brushed teeth. It was the first time after he had a bad day that we had a good talk and he didnt flip out.  I bet he has a great day today.

The kids are all feeling pretty good. So that gives me every reason to believe that it is going to be a great weekend.  The temps are up and the sun is out. Is the swimming pool in our future.  Maybe?

And as the weekend get closer, that means so does the Disney trip.

And for a few of my favorite headlines from this weeks USA Today

Firefighters dismantle police car to rescue kitten - I would have never thought that firefighters would have to work that hard to get them some...........

Study: The longer you sit, the shorter your life - Guess this means no more sitting down to pee

Doomsday shelters making a comeback - Oh hell yeah Doomsday, bring it on.

Tokyo's 'oldest living man' at age 111 apparently died 30 years ago - Weekend at Bernies movie making a comback in Tokyo.

Many men with low-risk prostate cancer treated aggressively - "Hey get your fingers out of my.....

Yes once again I am going to do the


1. Did you have a favorite blanket or toy as a kid? If so, do you still have it? - Yeah I think I had a little brown teddy bear that got washed after I threw up on him and his eyes and nose got missing after that. Do I still have him? No!  But I do have a couple books from when I was little and T and I do  plan on having the kids keep some of there favorite things.

2. Do you dream in color? - How the hell am I to know what I dream in. It could be in 3D and I still wouldn't be able to tell you. I cant remember what happened 2 minutes ago, and you want me to remember what I dream. And if it's in color? Get outta here.

3. How tall are you? Do you wish you were shorter or taller? - 6 feet tall.  Yes I wish I was a little bit taller, wish I was a baller, wish I had a girl who looked good so I could call her! You sucka's dont know bout that rap shit yo!  But yes I wish I was a little taller. 6'2 maybe.  You know what they say, the taller you are - the bigger feet you have and that mean the bigger your .............

4. If you could have anyone's (celeb or other) voice as the guide on your GPS, who would it be? - Justin Timberlake for a man. He could actually sing it to me.  For a woman, probably someone with an annoying voice, so I could hurry and get there faster so I wouldnt have to listen to it for very long.

5. Do you return your shopping cart to the corral or leave it wherever in the parking lot? - I think it depends on what store I am at. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't.  I know for sure whatever I do with it, it won't go running off into someone's car.
 
KISS THE BABY

The X Games and My Future X Gamers

TONIGHT IT BEGINS......AGAIN!

You can mark the next 4 days right up there along side watching football, basketball and playoff baseball.

I love the next 4 days.

I love the

X Games!!

Man I really love this stuff.  I wish I could do the shit they do.  I mean I probably could but I would not live to hear the cheers and collect my medals.

Another reason I love the X Games is because the kids like watching it with me.  I actually love them watching it with me more than they do but I like seeing their faces after someone does a cool trick or after a crash.

Another reason I love the X Games is that my kids look like little X Gamers.
The boys and the cool ass long hair, C3 and her cuts and bruises. C4 is a tough little shit himself.

This guy is my all time favorite
Not only is Shaun White a multiple Olympic Gold Medal Winner
He is also a bad ass skateboarder

This guy is one of my new favorites
Ryan Sheckler is a cool cat.  He tears up the skate park by doing
some amazing tricks.

Now this guy
Travis Pastrana, a  MotoX champ and a Rally Car Champ
is a master on so many levels.
This trick is called the "Kiss of Death"

These are my future X Gamers
I can't wait to get home and watch the
X Games with them



Check out the X Games on Espn and Abc.
All weekend long
I promise you will be in awe of the shit these guys and girls do.

Am I old?

I make the same drive home last night as I always do.  I parked my car in the garage the same way I always do.  I walk in the house the same way I always do.

But..........Something was different....Very different.

The house was still....quiet....calm.....

Was I at the wrong house?  No.  Was  I dreaming?  No.

Well shit, something has to be going on this is not the same house I walk into everynight.

I walk up the stairs and then it all hit me...

The sudden burst of a loud SURPRISE DADDY...rocked me and gave me the biggest smile...

C's coming from every direction....From the left, the right, from behind the couch....T and C4 come from behind the corner.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DADDY....

Man it was the best thing in the world.. A surprise and excitement from my kids are the best thing I could have ever wished for.

The pure joy and smiles coming from the kids.  They were so amped up..

Daddy we got you a present....Daddy we got you a cookie cake.....Daddy we got you donuts...Daddy we got you cookies....(Ok so I am fat ass..shut up about it already)

I jumped up and down and up and down to match their level of joy.

I started acting crazy with them and asked  "What do we eat first?"

"Daddy, you have to eat dinner first, Mommy cooked you a steak and potatoes and veggies" C1 announced.

I sat and began to eat my awesome dinner that T made for me.  I hammered the 2 steaks down, as well as the 2 mini potatoes and the veggies never stood a chance..

Then after the kids asking me every 2 minutes and me shoving food into my face as fast as I could, we decided to dive into the cookie cake....

The kids put a candle in each, I wonder if them putting in 4 candles means they think I am 40.  Nah, C1 already put on the card he made for me that I was a nice and ripe 38.

We ate the cookie cake and then it was time for the fashion show.  No not the underwear that they got me, my nice new boxer briefs that keep the boys in their positions and some nice plain white t shirts.

What I did model was a nice really thin (cotton I think) t shirt (blue) that I will wear in Disney.  It was very cool and I put it on and entered the kitchen singing

"Im too sexy for my shirt"

With the kids laughing at me now, I knew it was time for the show to be over.

All I have to do now is start working out again so I can make sure I look good in the shirt. (i think i can, i think i can, i think i can)

I have to say I had a really good birthday and the only thing that would have made it better was if it had been on a Saturday or Sunday, so I could have been with the kids and T all day long.

I have done alot in my 37 years of life.  Been alot of places, seen alot of things.  Done my share of bad things.  Done my share of good things. But what is funny is that as the older I get, only one thing makes me really happy on my birthday now.....the smiles on the C's faces when they tell me Happy Birthday.

Dont fool yourself.  Just cause I am 38, I can still hit the 3, run as fast as you, and do all the stuff I could do while I was in my 20's.  Only difference is, the next morning I am sore as shit.

So with today being the first day of being 38, I am going to see what I can do to be a little happier and alot more loving. 
                                             
"My next 30 years"
by Tim McGraw

I think I'll take a moment, celebrate my age
The ending of an era and the turning of a page
Now it's time to focus in on where I go from here
Lord have mercy on my next thirty years

Hey my next thirty years I'm gonna have some fun
Try to forget about all the crazy things I've done
Maybe now I've conquered all my adolescent fears
And I'll do it better in my next thirty years

My next thirty years I'm gonna settle all the scores
Cry a little less, laugh a little more
Find a world of happiness without the hate and fear
Figure out just what I'm doing here
In my next thirty years

Oh my next thirty years, I'm gonna watch my weight
Eat a few more salads and not stay up so late
Drink a little lemonade and not so many beers
Maybe I'll remember my next thirty years

My next thirty years will be the best years of my life
Raise a little family and hang out with my wife
Spend precious moments with the ones that I hold dear
Make up for lost time here, in my next thirty years
In my next thirty years

My Morning and Thank You Note Tuesday

Ever wonder what other people do in the morning when they wake up?

I woke up late this morning.  Had the usual morning wood. Its natural stop shaking your head.

Went to the kitchen and boiled some water for my Edamame.  My snack for today.  This shit is good.

Went into the bathroom and sat down to pee hoping I could get a few more minutes of sleep.

Got in the shower. Nice and Hot.  Washed up, did the man parts twice, more than twice means your playing with it. That is what I've heard anyways.

 Clean chest and back, thanks to T for hooking me up last night on the shave job.

Got out.  Contacts in.  Teeth brushed.

Thought about putting underwear on......went ahead and did it anyways.

Put the rest of my clothes on. Only seems fair.

Ate a bowl of Kashi cereal while watching Good Morning America and Sportcenter.

Got a free cup of coffee from the SWEET guy at Mickey D's this morn.

Made my trek to work today rockin' to some Metallica, Bush, Stone Temple Pilots and Puddle of Mudd.

Made it to work.

Wondered if it was time to go as soon as I walked in?

Nope. Not Yet! Damn it!

There you have it. Don't hate the PLAYA'!  Hate the Game!

A tv favorite of mine is Jimmy Fallon.  On his talk show he does something on Fridays called his "Thank You Notes"

I want to steal this but I am fearful of him catching wind of this and coming after me and sueing me for my wealth. So I am going to start a new thing and out of respect to Jimmy I am going to call my deal

"Thank You Note Tuesday"

So here we go............

Dear Talc - Thank You for making my boys feel cool and fresh during the hot sweaty days of summer.

Dear Boxer Briefs - Thank You for keep me snug.  Never know when something might pop up.

Dear Tony Heyward - Thank You for finally stepping down.  We will never know what else you could have f-ed up.

Dear C's - Thank You for jumping up and down while playing Super Mario.  I have always wondered what it is like to live in a shaking house.

Dear ABC - Thank You for gathering the group of ugly, goofy, and way too proud men back in one room last night at the The Bachelorette Tells All.  I forgot how sorry this years crop of dudes were. 

I feel kinda special today.  I am going to enjoy my day so you enjoy yours

Fun in the Sun on the weekend

Well, another weekend is over and that means another weekend closer to Disney. Man I wish vacation time would get here.

But until it does we continue to have fun fun fun in the sun

Well Big Baby C4 had a rough weekend with the 4 teeth coming in and his ear infecton.  Sucks.  Was a hard few days for T.  Big Baby C4 want only to deal with T and wants only T to take care of him. Its a awesome thing to see the love between a mommy and a son but it is frustrating at times cause I know its tough on T.

So Saturday night I made T the dinner I think she loves the most.  First I made her a salad. Then I whipped up a batch of my famous

Lasagna.

She loves it and I don't cook often enough for her, so I wanted to make it for her

It was HOT HOT HOT this weekend and with Big Baby C4 not feeling well we decided to stay away from the pool.

But it didn't keep us from having a little fun on the ol' slip and slide





I was flying the kids down the slip n slide, but I started to get tired by the time I realized I needed to video this.  A good time was had by all.  C3 is trying to get rid of tan lines before Disney so she looks ultra beautiful in her dresses.

Danny made it home from Jamaica and was happy to see his garden in good shape.  He did inform me that I let the Okra get too big before I picked them. Oh well, I know for next time.

T and I like to try new things.  We pick up alot from our surroundings and this past Friday we picked up a new saying from Wife Swap.  "HOT MESS"!  We laugh non stop when this is used and it is now a fixture in our home.

I found a new show I like on the DIY Network that I love.  Yard Crashers.  This show is great. It has a guy Ahmed and he goes around to different places and asks random people, crazy questions like "Can I go home with you?"  "Do you have a backyard?"  "Can I help you with your yard?".  The person that says yes, get a huge surprise.  The surprise......He comes over and does a backyard makeover.  Only catch is....the person he picks has to help.  So from now on when a person asks me if I need help with anything, I am going to say yes, just in case it is Ahmed.

Thanks to Nanny and PawPaw for the awesome package of kids school supplies.  They loved it.

KISS THE BABY!

Fridays Final Thoughts 7-23-10 and 5 Q F.....Kiss The Baby!!!!!

This Daddy's Blog

FRIDAYS FINAL THOUGHTS

It's about time.  Friday is finally here.  Seems like weeks ago (just the other day) that I wrote about staying positive at work and not letting the negative shit get to me.  That lasted all of about 2 or 3 days.  Yesterday was a shitty day.  For so many reasons and rhymes and thimbles and signs.  I don't know what the hell that means, it just sounded funny so I left it there.

I am starting to think I need a fucking therapist. For real.

So I usually I am aggravated at T over the fact the she can fall asleep 5 minutes after her head hits the pillow and it takes me forever.  But the past couple day Big Baby C4 has been feeling under the weather and yesterday he got sick all over T and then got sick again last night.  So I know that T is having long days and I told her this in an instant message this morning

Me - see i wish i was there to help at least do something to make it easier or you
T - yeah but it probably wouldn't
Me - Thanks for that
T - being honest

So do I consider myself lucky that I get to be at work all day?  NO!  But I know that me being home on an odd day would just mess up the schedule.

She did inform me that the 3 older C's helped themselves to some Toy Story 3 stickers for the sticker books that they were not suppose to get into.  Not Good!  And they did fix themselves breakfast, only after T told them that since they can get things for themselves that they are not suppose to have, then they can fix their own breakfast! And they did just that.

So a funny thing happened this week when we got the new cord for the kids laptop......
It has shrinkage!!!
No matter where we sit or go in the house to plug it in, it wont reach anywhere for us to use it.  It's like I need to buy a cord stretcher now.

So I am in the instant message mode with T this morning and she sends me a message...

T - We got a Mini Boden catalog yesterday in the mail and the kids are going through it circling stuff again. I asked them what they were doing, and they said, See mom we circle things for Nanny to buy so she knows what we like. And C2 said yeah and Pawpaw. C3 is circling shit for all of them.

That is pretty funny.

I am ready for the weekend.  My arm rotting, death rash is looking better finally. So maybe this weekend I will be able to do all the shit I need to do without my armpit feeling like it is on fire.  Clean, yardwork, laundry, maybe cook for t, since she deserves it!!!  Maybe some "Pants off - Dance off"

Ok now for some silly shit.

Justin Bieber to guest-star on CBS' 'CSI' - I hope they kill him off.  At least maybe they fix that f-ed up hair style of his

La. bishops: No guns in Catholic churches - This is true. They are asking for members of the church to only bring knives

More parents are teaching their babies sign language - Due to the increasing number of screaming children, this is a popular trend.

Danny comes home this weekend. I hope he finds his garden was left in good hands.  It actually rained often enough that I have only had to water it a couple times.  Thank you for pop up storms.

Why are the worst storms named after women?  Because everyone knows that women bring hell with them no matter where they go.  They just wait for the proper time to unleash it.

To my Mom.  You better be practicing with that new camera of yours,  Disney is around the bend.  To my Dad.  You better be practicing pulling your wallet out, Disney is around the bend. 





Ok, I am going to take part again in the 5QF
lets see what we can do today

1. What were your school colors? - Red and Blue.  The Albemarle High School Patriots.  Logo on the football helmet looked like the old N.E. Patriots logo

2. What's the best compliment you ever received? - WOW.  I can think of a few that T has given me but this is a family show in primetime and kids are watching.  I would say the best compliment would be when someone tells me I am a good husband and father

3. Do you buy cheap or expensive toilet paper? - To be honest with you I have no idea. T does the shopping and she uses coupons so the expensive stuff might not cost alot.  I am not sure which it is, but it does feel good on my ass so I can't complain.  The kids love the way it rolls all over the bathroom floor and how it just fills up the toilet.

4. Have you ever had a surprise party thrown for you? Or have you had one for someone else? - I don't know if I have had one for me, I can't remember if I have thrown one for someone...BUT....I do know this.....Theres a party in my tummy...so yummy...so yummy...theres a party in my tummy

5. What is one material possession that you "can't live without"? - Off the top of my head..My Sirius Satellite Radio in the car. I have an hour drive to and from work and I hate regular radio and the stupid morning shows.  Mike and Mike in the Morning on ESPN, Howard Stern and CNN's Robin Meade, plus the best variety of music.  Just like LL Cool J said "I couldn't Survive without my Radio"

And with that I am going to use my new favorite saying

KISS THE BABY

Show and Tell Thursday

Ok so Show and Tell Thursday.

Just going to put some pic's up and show them to you and tell you about them.

Being that I am a constant clown and goof off, and oh yeah I have some what of a dirty mind, it is no surprise to me that my C's will come up with some of the wildest shit to say.

T picked this baby cucumber from OUR garden last night.

So I am in the kitchen and C1 comes up to me and says

C1- Daddy this looks like a wee wee! (our penis verbage)

Me- (thinking-What the hell did you say?)

Me- (saying) What?

C1- Daddy, it looks like a wee wee!

Me- No it doesn't!

C1- Yes it does!

Me- NO IT DOESN'T

C1- Mommy said it does!

C1 leaves kitchen.

Me- Honey did you say anything to C1 about the cucumber looking like a wee wee?
T- NO!

Me- Uh...He says you did!

T- OH.  Maybe I said that to you on the phone and he heard me
Me- (laughing) Ok.

This is our house rabbit.

Not in our house, but around the house and he eats all of the stuff we feed him and comes back for more.

The kids named the Rabbit.....Stitch


This is the NASTY F-ing rash that is going to make my arm fall off of my body.  Today is day #9 of this thing and while all of you are out there thinking this is so small and not a big deal......

Go jump off a bridge.  It burns and is sore and I have not been able to wear deodorant or shave and man groom myself.  On a positive note T does say it is looking better and I have been using Neosporin, A&D Ointment, antinbacterial soaps and talc, I am not sure which is working so I use them all. 

And on a side not, armpits stink up real fast when there is not a deodorant used on them.  So men, if you want action from your ladies, use the stuff.

I have given myself a new nickname while this disease takes over my body (yes I am a BIG PUSS)

I am know as

MR. FUNGUY

Funny Noises and our BIG BABY

When all else fails and your looking to have some fun on a Tuesday night just gather all the kids in your bed and let them display the art of arm and leg farts noises.  I mean who can't say that this isn't fun?

Now there is no footage you can see, so you just have to listen.  Shhhhhhhhhh...........listen


Ok and here is another.........Shhhhhhhhhhhhh.......listen again


So just remember, when you are sitting around bored and can't think of anything to do.........

Nothing can be more fun that getting your kids together and having them slobber all over your arms and legs and making fart noises.

And since we went and saw Toy Story 3 a few weeks ago, C4 has taken on a new nickname...........


BIG BABY

I do have to note though, that our BIG BABY (C4) never has touched a bottle (Breast is Best!) and he does have both eyes and they work properly

Our BIG BABY C4

Ali The Bachelorette cries and so does Frank

The Bachelorette

This show has turned into a joke.

Ali is an over acting-under qualified actress with an annoying laugh and way too many fake tears to shed.

So the group is off to Tahiti.  Wait except Frank.  Frank is walking around the city of Chicago.  A large city that has thousands of cabs and buses and his dumb ass is walking all over the place.  And where is his stupid short, v neck tshirt and Chandler Bing look alike self going?  To his UGLY ex girlfriends place.  Now I am not into blondes and Ali is ok looking, but come on Frank(furter), Nicole is UGLY.  This shit was so over played.  Nicole saying "Frank, you complete me"  "Im sick without you"
Well Nicole America is sick WITH him. so take his sorry ass back and thank you for keeping him off of tv the next couple weeks.
Frank if you are going to Tahiti to break up with Ali, why are you taking more than 1 bag?

You get there and all you do is cry.  You cry and Ali cries.  You cry somemore and then she does too.  She throws her flippy floppy's and pouts off into the sunset until Chris comes over and strokes her ego.

Roberto, this dude is a classic ladies man.  This dude has Ali and she is putty in his hands.  A water swimming hole shaped as a heart?  Dude the fugliest man in American could get action in this location.  No lie.  And Ali, being carried around the water in his arms and then through the water to the Fantasy Suite.  Yeah,  I know what happened there.

Chris L., Can any guy play the shy guy deal more or better than him? NO.  Ali eats this shit up. She loves it. He plays it perfectly.  Not to sound like an asshole but all they do is talk about his family and she loves family and they get along good together. I think she know he is not in it just for exposure and action, but if he gets some action he wont turn it down.

Having fun on a Monday night

Last night was a good night.  Got home, T was thinning out C1's hair a little so he would'nt be so hot.  C2 is next.  Although I really don't want his hair trimmed at all, she says it needs to be trimmed a little.  I never thought in a million years that I would love my boys having long hair, but you know, it is the coolest thing and I love it and hates even when she trims it.

We got the new laptop battery charger of ebay in the mail, so the laptop that Nanny and PawPaw gave the kids is back in working order.  The new issue of ESPN the Magazine arrived yesterday, and it has Fantasy Football stuff and the schedule of events for the upcoming

SUMMER X GAMES.  I love the SUMMER X GAMES.  Watch soon for the special blog post about the games.

T got some new ribbon to make C3 some nice hair bows.  I swear if this woman who calles herself my wife had more free time, she could make a fortune doing all the shit she knows how to do.  Bows, Coupons, Cloth Diapering, Baby Food making....it never ends. But she maintains focus on the most important things.....the 4 C's.

I was at home to witness C4 beat C3 in the head with a plastic maraca.  Yeah that wasn't so nice.

Yesterday I won a Wii Game from http://www.sleeplessmornings.com/ and Jump Start.  I was excited and can't wait to get it and have fun with the kids.  Check out Merrie's blog, you'll enjoy it.

This weekend T and I got some mailing labels that I won over at http://www.thesnyder5.com/.  Not much to say about her blog, she knows it rocks.

And then C3 and C4 had a little fun

Make the BAD things GOOD

Mondays suck.  Whether it is coming off a good weekend or a bad weekend or a so-so weekend like I had, Mondays just suck no other way to look at it.

Mondays suck cause if I had a awesome weekend and was great to the wife and kids, then why would I want to leave that to come to where I am?

Mondays suck cause if I had a bad weekend and I was a asshole to the wife and kids, then I would not want to come to where I am and leave things at the house like that.

When I have a so-so weekend like this weekend, meaning I was sort of an asshole to the wife and sort of an asshole to the kids, I dont want to come here to work because I didn't give the family all I had.  I really didn't help T out as much as I normally do and I was short with the kids more than a few times this weekend.

I want to blame some of my assholeness on this fucking nasty armpit rash that I can't figure out what it is.  It is just so annoying and irritating that it pisses me off.  It burns and is sore and no matter what I put on it, it doesn''t seem to get any better.  I could have been a champ and cruised through the weekend like T would have done if she had the rash, but then that just wouldn't be me.  I tend to flake out when I am sick or hurt or have any kind of anything going on.  I told T last night that I wish she would be the one that had the rash, and she responded by saying "I would still go on....Cause I have to and that's what I do"  Yeah exactly.

I hate being Negative and Depressing and it seems that this post is exactly that.  As I am typing this out, I am sitting here thinking about how everything around me is so damn negative and I get wrapped up into that.  So I need to be positive, if not for me at least for T and the C's. 

So lets try to change it up, in my mind and in my heart.

This is the beginning of a new work week, a week where we are going to make money and get a step closer to getting my money back on my paycheck.  A week in which I am not going to go home and complain about anything to T  and I am going to wrap myself up with my C's.

It all begins with ME!   I have to be positive, so T and the C's will be positive.  T is too good to me and the C's put up with enough of my shit for me to be such a dick to them all the time.  I know every parent has those days, those weekends but I let things that I control, bother me.  SInce I control all of these things, I just need to actually CONTROL them.

Fridays Final Thoughts 7-16-10 and Five Question Friday....I got it all covered

This Daddy's Blog

FRIDAYS FINAL THOUGHTS

I am so f-ing happy it is Friday, you don't even understand how happy I am.  Friday is always a good day for me. Closer to the weekend and 2 days with the wife and kids. 2 days not having to hear the constant bitching and moaning of 2 certain people. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

Man, lets get to it, I have got some good shit for you today.

I got home last night and C4 had this Mommy Beater on (aka wife beater) and with his little stocky self he looked to cool, I wish I would have gotten a pic.

Thanks to T for doctoring my nasty armpit rash.  I know I am a big puss when it comes to things like this and make them worse than they really are. It's Day #2 and it still feels like my arm is going to fall off.  I think I will call the Insurance Company today to make sure the life insurance is in order.  Has anyone ever died from an armpit rash?  Shit might be the first?

C4 is 13 months old and in the future T will be finished breastfeeding. Not sure when, don't care when, I just know the day will come.  So to be a great husband I wanted to throw out some ideas about getting her some new bra's.

Katy Perry's Ice Cream Bra.  Who doesn't like ice cream

Lady GagGag's Sparkler Bra.  A perfect way to light a fire in your love life

And Madonna's pointer bra.  Points even when its not cold.


Last Friday my neighbor Jamaican D asked me to look after and water his veggie garden while he is gone for 2 weeks in Jamaica.  I jumped in quicksand because his damn garden isi like something from a movie.  It is everywhere and huge.  Look at the different kinds of squash and the okra.  Pay special attention to the one in the middle, the long, crazy shapped one. Yeah. I know. Nikki, your cucumber pic's got nothing on that big boy right there.


Australian escapes with leg bite after trying to ride a 16-foot crocodile- What dumbass tries to ride a 16 foot croc?

Tiny mushrooms blamed for 400 deaths in China- I wonder if this has anything to do with Bowser? Mario and Luigi we need you to say China. 

Singing, whistling may be unlawful in S.C. town- Good news is that you can still Whisper.

Mel Gibson- Shit dude, you are in some TROUBLE. That is all I can say.

Bristol Palin, Levi Johnston say they're engaged- Really?  I am so happy for them  Who gives a shit if these two are engaged? I don't!  Now all we are goiong to hear is Mommy Palins fat mouth and her bizarre comments. Yeah...can't wait. 

Baseball Fans- Who won the All-Star game Tuesday night?  Brian McCan! The Braves Catcher. Thats right THE ATLANTA BRAVES catcher did with his 3 run double.  And they just picked up Alex Gonzalez. World Series is coming to A-TOWN

Football Season- There are still spots left in the Blogger Fantasy Football league. Let me know if your interested.

Carl's Jr., Hardee's test market foot-long burger- Sure to be a hit with the ladies.

I think it is suppose to rain alot this weekend, but that is a good thing. It will give me all the time I need to do stuff around the house and let T start next week with a clean slate.

Happy Anniversary to my parents tomorrow.  It will be 28 years. Love you guys.

Now time to take part in Mama M's





1. Do you collect anything? Yes.  I collect hats. Ball caps to be more specific. Visors.  Teams.  Texas Longhorns, Florida State, Atlanta Falcons and Braves and really just any hats that I like.  Our cousin Torre plays baseball in the minor leagues so I have some hats from his teams he has played for.  I just love wearing hats.

2. Name 3 celebrities that you find good looking.  Kim Kardashian. Cheryl Burke from Dancing with the Stars.  Tina Fey.  A late scratch and addition, Jillian from The Bachelorette

3. Do you have any scars? If so, what's the story behind it (them?)? On both shoulders from surgeries. The 2 from my hernia and appendectomy. And the one I am most proud of is the one on the bottom side of the boys from being clipped.

4. What is a food that you like to eat, but others might think it's gross or weird? I had to ask T because I couldn't think of what I like to eat that is gross.  She told me raw potatoes and sucking the heads of crawfish.

5. Have you ever seen a tornado in real life? Yes one time in Kansas back in the 90's
 
EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND

Problem with cosleeping

COSLEEPING -(as listed in Wikipedia) A practice (practice that we have perfected) in which babies (C4) and young children (C1, C2, C3)sleep in close proximity to one or both parents, as opposed to a separate room.

See over the years, I have changed my way of thinking on some things.  Cosleeping being one of them.  I used to be kind of against it.  Meaning that when the kids are older, get your ass out of my bed and get in your own bed.  MY bed, MY space.  I know that is selfish but whatever. It's about ME ME ME and MY MY MY.

My problem is that even though we have a king size bed, I still struggle to have comfortable space in which I like to sleep in.  I like to be spread out, legs apart so my balls are not sticking to my thighs all throughout the night.  I hate sleeping clothed, which I have to do now since C2 asked me a while back "Why do you sleep naked?" 

Well to make last night worse, on the way home from work, I noticed my underarm was burning up and T looked at it when I got home and she got the crazy look on her face.  I have this huge red irritated rash looking thing on my right underarm. Fucking killing me.

So I am having trouble sleeping anyways and guess what happens?  Cosleeping bed from hell happens.

C1, the first to come in and that is highly unusual. He hardly ever comes to our bed in the middle of the night.

C2, then comes in and he like to spread out like me, so he is all over the place. Legs and feet all up in my space.

C3, she was the last this morning and she is ok, she curls up like a little ball at the end of the bed.

So shit, 6 of us in the bed, me with some kind of underarm rash, fungus, death disease that makes me uncomfotable and then throw in the ol sweaty balls sticking to the thighs and I had one helluva night.  And the only thing that makes me smile about all of this, T is over there sleeping like a damn log.  Not moving.  She is in HER space and sleeping so soundly.  God I am so happy that she sleeps good. BULLSHIT.

So see, I really don't have a problem with cosleeping, I just wish that maybe the C's could take turns and rotate nights that they flock to our bed.

Men don't keep health secrets....do we?


DANGEROUS HEALTH SECRETS MEN KEEP

Dr. Oz is a F-ing stud.  I love that dudes show.  I mean, he covers it all and on top of it all, he gives tips on how to get laid more often.....by our wives of course.  This guy has personally given me tips (well not personally) and they have worked.  My "Pants Off - Dance Off" stats have improved.  This guy and his show are also great for getting you in the right direction for eating good and feeling good. 

So today, I was reading his website Dr. Oz and went to the Dangerous Health Secrets Men Keep section and started doing some reading.  I am here today to cover these things and give my thoughts on the secrets.

The Big One- Nobody wants to talk about it, but almost every man experiences it at some point in their life - the inability to get or maintain an erection. In fact, new research shows that Erectile Dysfunction affects more than half of men over the age of 60, and nearly 20% of men over the age of 20. So why aren't they talking about it? Ok, god I love the first 6 words.  This is right, no one wants to talk about their junk not getting up! Thats why its a secret.  So now that I am alomost 40, I have to start worrying about being over 60 and not gettin' it up. And I know I am not in the 20%tile for men over the age of 20.  T will tell ya, I don't have this problem.........yet.

A Pressing Issue- It's a normal part of getting older: as men age, their prostate (the walnut-shaped gland under the bladder that helps produce semen) begins to thicken, compressing the urethra and making it difficult for urine to pass through. So men may go to the bathroom constantly, but take a long time to actually urinate or finish - and feel like they have to go again right away. Oh man I am reading this and thinking about Kidney Stones.  I have had tons of these and now that my diet has changed I hope that I never have problems peeing.  It seems like the only time I have ever had problems peeing is when I am at a ball game and there are a million men behind you screaming at you to hurry and I either can't go or I cant finish going.....Ahhhh..Pee Ya Later
All in the Mind- We all begin to forget things here and there as we age, but when men begin to fear they are having memory loss, they are often afraid to speak up. For some, it's a confirmation aging, for others, the possible causes are too scary to contemplate.  Shit, I forget everything.  I have always had this problem, from losing house keys and Id cards while living in Germany, to going to the store with a list and still forgetting shit to going downstairs to get paper towels and coming back up with nothing. So this mean as I get older, I am not going to remember a damn thing. What was I just doing?   T get me a notepad to carry around, please and thanks.
How to Break the Silence-Show your love. Experts recommend beginning the conversation by explaining that you love your partner and want them to take care of themselves so that they live a long and comfortable life with you. Start and end your sentences with, "I love you."  I show my love damn it. Wait, does grabbing T's ass count? I think it does, but thats just me.  Man shit, I dont care what the experts say, if I begin a conversation with "I Love You"  T is gonna think I am up to no good and that I want something.  Me -"Hey T, you know I love you"  T -"What the hell do you want?"  I always end the conversation with "I Love You".  But again, thats just me.

The other show that I like is The Doctors.  It has the one Dr. from the Bachelor, Travis on it.  It also has Dr. Sears on it and T is a huge fan of the Sears Family Doctors. Well this show also can help your relationship with your loved one and make you feel better at the same time.

I am by no means a cook, I dont even pretend to play one on tv.

The closest thing I get to being a cook is probably my foul language that compares to Chef Gordon Ramsey.

Tasteful Selections sent us 3 bags of potatoes.

1. Ruby Sensations

2. Sunrise leMedy
