Perfect Day......NOT!!

This morning I woke up around midnight, yet again, to my daughter crying at our door.  My wife didn't move a muscle, so I had to get up and see what was the matter.  If you don't know we have a doggie gate at our door so the kids can't get in there unless something was wrong, like last night.  Just wanted to give you that bit of information for those who asked the question,  "Why was she at the door and not go in the room?!?".  Anyways, I picked her up and she was wet a little.  I put her back down and went to her room to find out that she got sick in her bed.  Just a reminder, last week my son woke up in the middle of the night cause he did the same thing. We can't win this battle of sickness here at the Fowler house.  I cleaned her up in the kitchen and gave her a drink to wash it all down and she was screaming she wanted her mommy but she kept gagging so I told her to calm down and we would go get in mommy's bed.  While all of this was going on, my wife STILL had not moved a muscle.  We walked to the bedroom to get back in bed and I flip the light switch to our room and my wife wakes up, "What are you doing? What's wrong?"  Really?!?!?  All this screaming going on and I flip a light switch and you are awake?!?!?  Amazing!!!!  She must have been in a coma or something, but she was getting some good sleep.  That's okay though because I took care of my daughter, for once, and let her get some extra, well needed, sleep.

We woke up this morning and got ready to go to my work venue called Comcast Cares day where we build items and give them to well-needed people and places of the community.  This year we built bookshelves for teachers in Nashville and surrounding areas.  It all went well all the way up there and even while we were there she was great.  She played like nothing was wrong and we painted her face and everything.  We sat down to eat and listen as they did a raffle for prizes, which I didn't win anything by the way.  We left and started driving home and not 5 minutes down the road she got sick again, EVERYWHERE!!  We JUST cleaned the car last night and washed the car seat down and everything.  We got off the interstate to get gas and to clean her up.  We pulled into a Tiger market and while cleaning Kaydee she said, "I want to stay here." and I simply replied, "At the gas station?" where she then replied, "Yeah, at the gas station!".  She started throwing a fit because we weren't gonna stay at the there, LOL.  We got her a Sprite to drink then left for home where she then fell asleep.  The funny thing about the trip was that my son had a portable DVD player and was watching "Happy Feet" when he fell asleep.  I told my wife to turn the movie off and as soon as she picked the DVD player up off his lap he woke up and said, "MOMMY!!!" then fell back asleep.  We got a kick out of that.  We hit Wal-Mart on our way home and picked up cleaning supplies to clean the house because we seem to think it is something here getting them sick.  We just got done cleaning about an hour ago but it is SPOTLESS in here now!!  I am exhausted now and I thought I would let you know about my day.

Well, that's all for tonight probably but I might add some new videos and pictures from Comcast Cares today.  Thanks for reading and have a great night!!

Tragic Day and the news to me

My post today is going to be dedicated to those who lost their lives this week in the tornadoes in Alabama, Tennessee, and Missouri.  The death toll is up to at least 250 lives and it's a terrible day for the loved ones of those who died.  I pray for those who lost someone and I hope they can make it through these tough times.  Tornadoes rip through houses and toss freight trains like toys and are nothing to play around with.  You must take extreme caution when a tornado could be in the air.  Let's be safe and make sure this never happens again. Keep everyone in their prayers and hearts.

My day wasn't all that interesting today so I won't bore you with that.  I wanna talk about what I heard in the news today.

First on my agenda, not sure if anyone heard about this but in Cheney, Washington a man was arrested for supposedly "stealing" some .99 cent sausage....come on....REALLY?!?!  The man said he simply forgot to pay for them and told police that he would gladly give the money for them.  I think that the police don't get that much action in Cheney and saw this as an opportunity to use swift justice.  This is the most ridiculous case I have ever heard of in my life.  This even went to court in front of a jury.  Talk about a was of our tax payer's money!!  Let the man pay for his sausage and allow him to be on his way.  IT'S JUST SAUSAGE!!!

Next, a man in Starke, Florida was arrested for making video tapes of women tanning in his tanning beds.  The thing that makes this weird is the the tanning bed was in the BARN in his backyard........DUH!!!  I don't think he needs to be arrested, I think the women on his tapes need brought in and have their hair dyed blonde and beat with a Nerf bat until they realize why they're being beat.  I mean, would YOU go to a barn behind a guys house to tan just to save a few bucks?!?  I didn't think so.  If you did you should not press charges because you were stupid to do that in the first place.

Another one for ya...Antoine Dodson got arrested for misdemeanor marijuana possesion and charged with speeding, violation of Alabama's mandatory liability insurance law and two counts of failure to appear in court on an old traffic violation.....WHO CARES!!!!   He got auto tuned by someone who got bored and thought it would be cool (I did enjoy it by the way).  He isn't famous and does this surprise anyone that he was arrested?  Not me.  How did he become part of the everyday news?!?  I could care less what he does.  That's just ridiculous to me but whatever!

Okay, I think I have rambled on enough tonight.  I hope you enjoyed if not......sorry.  Have a good night and thanks for reading.  By the way, if you are into the draft, the Tennessee Titans first round pick 8 was QB Jake Locker from Washington.  Just a little info for ya!!

I just got back from the dentist and I am numb.  When I first got there no one was there.  I was the only car in the parking lot so I went straight in and got to work.  He stuck me like 3 or 4 times to numb me up and let me tell you....IT WORKED!!  He started to get to work and kept asking me, "You okay?!?" and I kept saying yeah until he got to the root or whatever it was that was bothering me.  He stuck his dental tool in it and I jumped clear out of my seat.  That hurt like HELL, let me tell you.  He then stuck me yet again to numb me up more and left me there for about 10 minutes.  He came back in asked me if I was numb and I told him that my cheek was but I could still feel where he was working and he quikly said, "Oh, I can fix that!".  He stuck me with something around my tooth and asked me if I could feel anything and I couldn't feel anything!!!  Whatever he did worked like magic because I didn't feel anything he did the rest of the visit.  I am about to lay down and sleep the numbness off and try to eat something when I wake up because I have only eaten a bowl of cereal today and thats it.  Well, off to dreamland.  I'll let you know how I feel when I arise from the dead!!!

Rainy, pukey day!!

So this morning was rough!!  I woke up at around 2 in the morning to my son crying saying, "I puked in my bed!".  I got up and went in his room and sure enough he had, all over his bed!  The smell was terrible!!  I almost got sick myself.  I had to run to the kitchen and get a drink before I did!  I made my wife strip his bed cause I just couldn't bear it(I bet you are picturing my wife stripping, aren't you?!?!).  Once we got him all cleaned up we went back to sleep only to wake up a little after 6.  My wife sat up in the bed and said, "Ummmm.....the alarm didn't go off!!".  Well, she got up in a hurry and got ready while I, on the other had......didn't.  I am the hardest person to get up in the morning and I don't know why.  Probably cause I enjoy sleeping.  Once we got ready, we realized that it was POURING outside and that it was supposed to storm all day!!  YUCK!!!  I hate working in the sucks!!!  Luckily, it stopped raining around 10ish.  Now I am at home relaxing hoping and wishing my kids will get a good nights rest and for God's sake get BETTER!!  I don't know why but my kids stay sick and we can't figure it out for the life of us!!!  When Peyton's fever is down then Kaydee's fever is up and vice versa.  It...just...won't...stop!!!!  I felt terrible all day for him though!! I know how it feels to feel like that and that's something I don't want my son to go through.  But people get sick and pass it on to kid is the one passing it....sorry in advance. The worst part of the night was washing his sheets and comforter.  OH MY GOD it smelled so bad!!!!!  I still have to put his bed back together though.  It's weird because I can watch the most disgusting movies you could ever imagine but if you put a smell to's over for me.  I guess that's how it goes.  Well, that's all for the night!!  I hope everyone has a good night!!!

Work Update!

I have been posting about my numbers at work and I just wanted to let everyone that has read my post about making it this month that all that work......has paid off!!!  I made my numbers and have another month to prove myself.  I have to be at 8.25% or under to meet my goal!  That means that 8.25% of my jobs can call back in within 30 days of me being out there and I will be ok.  I am sure I an make it happen because if not...well...lets just say that I will have a close eye on me for 6 months.  I was excited to hear that I made it and if I continue on the road I am on I will for sure make my numbers!!

In other updates, I fixed my disaster from today with the help of my dad.  I can't believe all of that happened at once!  Just my luck, right?  All is well now in the Fowler house except for the two puppies peeing and pooping EVERYWHERE and the only way I know they did is by stepping in it!  I absolutely HATE stepping in it and it make me  sooooooooo mad I can't stand it!!  Just 2 more weeks and they will be gone!!!  They already have homes so I just have to wait 2 weeks.

I have a nice and smooth week ahead of me this week.  Wednesday I get off work at noon to go to the dentist and I am off Saturday for a work gathering called "Comcast Cares".  We are building bookshelves for schools and have a food drive too.  It's free and if you would like to come and get some food and just have some fun it will be Saturday, April 30th at Two Rivers Pkwy in Nashville, TN.  Please join us and bring your kids there will be lots of things for kids to do there!!

Well, I am off here for the night.  Thanks for reading and have a great night!!!

Are You Kidding Me?!?!

Ok, so my day was going good until about an hour ago.  I was sitting on my computer looking at my e-mail when my son comes into the kitchen and says to me, "Daddy, there's a lot of pee in the kitchen!"  I turn around in my chair and almost the entire kitchen was covered in water!!!  I was like, "WHAT THE HELL!!!"  I walked over to my washing machine and looked behind it and the drainage hose SOMEHOW fell out of the drain and all the water from the washing machine had drained out on the floor!!  I was sooooo pissed!  I started cleaning it up and when I went to pull the refrigerator out to clean out from under it the copper pipe that fed water to my ice machine broke and was spewing more water on the floor so I quickly turned the water off to it!  I just stood back for a second and said to myself, "Well, when "Trouble" comes he brings his friends with him!"  I just got all of that cleaned up and I thought I would share my experience with you.  Well I got to go deal with my refrigerator now but I will be writing again today to update you on my progress at work!!

Great End to a Great Day!

Today went great!!  I just spent some time with good friends and family!  After the easter egg hunt at my mom's i laid on the couch to watch a movie and passed out.  I didn't want to but my body decided it needed to!  I think I slept a good 2 hours but it was enough to freshen me up.  We got home and I wanted to work on our garden and that's not usually me.  We JUST finished that up about 20 minutes ago.  Now, I am sitting around relaxing and reflecting back on the day! I took some pictures and some videos at my mom's so check out the "Easter at Mom's" page and let me know what you think!!

Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter everyone!!!  I hope everyone is having a great easter with family and friends!  My day is going very well so far.  My kids got visited by the Easter Bunny this morning and were excited as if it were Christmas!!  My son, Peyton, got a 2 person tent and an air mattress with a Buzz Lightyear comforter that zips on the mattress.  He would NOT get out of the tent this year and asked already to sleep in it tonight.  My daughter, Kaydee, got a pink trike and loves it to death!  Of course, they both got easter baskets FULL of candy!!!  We gathered up after that and when to my in-laws to hunt easter egg because the Easter Bunny is a JERK and hid them over there, LOL!!!  It was great watching them hunt for them and the excitement  when they find one, "I found one, I found one!!!!".  Now I am sitting at my mom's waiting for Easter dinner to get done so we can eat and enjoy the day with family and friends!!  I will be making a separate page and posting pictures later so check in later and have a look at them.  I am gonna get off here now and spend some time with everyone.  Thank you for reading and have a GREAT Easter!!

Interesting facts

Hello everyone!!!  My day wasn't very interesting and not much to talk about so I decided to make a post of facts about me that you may or may not have known about me!

I was born March 11th, 1984, and on that day this was the #1 song on the Billboard charts:

That's weird because I know that song but anyways! I wonder if my parents liked that song that much?

This was one of my all time favorite cartoon movies and I will still, to this day, rock this out in my car or at home:

You can't say that wasn't and awesome song!!!  I used to bang that in high school with my two 12" and two 10" subwoofers, LOL!!!

This is my all time favorite TV series...which you can prolly already guess...and in my favorite roll he does....DEXTER!!!


Before school when I was about 7 or 8 I used to watch this EVERY morning while waiting on the bus:

Gotta love some Scooby Doo!!!

Well that's about it for the night.  I hope you enjoyed reading a little bit about me and watching some videos of what I grew up to.  Please comment and let me know if you want to know more.  I have plenty more I can tell you I am just too tired to put it all on one post!  Good night all and thanks for putting up with me for a few minutes.

Experimental post!!

Hope you like the background music I added to this post. A little entertainment while you read my boring, funny, and sometimes disgusting posts.

Today was just another typical day, working hard to get through this month.  I completed the jobs I needed to make this month.  Now, I just have to sit back and wait until all the jobs get completed in the system to see if i made my final monthly numbers.  I really hope so!!  I actually got off at 5:15pm today due to there was absolutely NO work to do!  I decided just to cut out and take my chances.

Now to get off the work subject and to let you know how my night is going.  We decided to hit the Mexican restaurant for dinner where I ordered the Philly Cheese Steak Burrito, which was pretty good and I will personally suggest it to anyone!!  My son ordered the kid enchilada and when he got it I swear it smelled like "wet dog"!!  Needless to say he didn't eat it and I can't really blame him.  While we were waiting for our check my son was playing with his hands, crashing into them and making collision sounds.  I ask him what he was playing with and he showed me his hands and i dumbly asked, "What are they?" which my son replied, "My fingers!".  I sat back for a second and asked myself, "Why the hell did I just ask that stupid question?"  I laughed to myself quietly and just let it go, but that was the only stupid thing i did today, OH no!  My second job today I had to replace a drop (line from pole to house for those who are looking like "WHAT?!?!?"). So I hooked it at the house first then to the jump pole (pole between the house and pole at road...come on stay with me now!).  I decided to gaff because I try to do it once a day for 2 reasons: 1. so I always know how to do it and 2. it's good exercise.  I put my gaffs on and started climbing the pole and get all the way to the top (about 16 or 17 feet) I look down and say out loud, "DAMN IT!!!".  that's right ladies and gentlemen...I forgot to bring the line up with me!!!  I had to gaff back down and get it but I decided to put my ladder up this time.  I couldn't believe I did that, but it happens.  

Well thats all tonight.  I am EXTREMELY tired again tonight!!  Thanks for reading and feel free to comment on songs you would like me to background my posts with.  Have a great night everyone!!

7 to go!!

So for the past 2 days I have been working my @$$ off to meet my numbers at work and as of Saturday I needed 26 jobs to do that.  Well, I volunteered to work until 6:30PM the past 2 days to get as much work in as I could.  Tuesday I completed 10 calls and today I completed 8 calls.  Tomorrow is a new day and I need to complete at LEAST 7 calls!!!  As long as no one else has called in on me in the past 30 days I should be good and I won't get wrote up!!  I didn't get home tonight until after 8:30PM, but I have put in over 22 hours this week already and its just been 2 days!!!  I am EXHAUSTED!!!  I know that it will be beneficial to me in the long run...I hope.

On another note...I was SUPPOSED to get off work today at around noon to make my root canal appointment at 1:00PM.  Well, as I was working I decided that I needed to work all day so I called the dentist to see if I could push it back a little so I could get some more jobs in.  They told me no that today was booked.  Ok, no problem, I can deal with that.  Now 15 minutes has gone by and I decide to call back and see if i can reschedule for later on in the week.  She asks my name and asked what I was coming in for so I told her and she said to me, "Well, your not scheduled to come in until NEXT Wednesday."  That's when I said to my self, "I am stupid! She wrote it down on a card you IDIOT!!!"  So I got to work all day and get more jobs in so all-in-all it turned out ok.

On one of my jobs I had a blown amp in the house box.  If you don't know what an amp is or does, it boosts the signal if you have a lot of TV's.  Well, I changed it out and went in to see if i fixed it and she told me lightning hit by her house this morning around 2AM.  She pointed out her kitchen window to show me the tree it hit and I was amazed what it had done to the tree.  I took some pics to show you what I saw:

This is just some of the bark it blew off.

Lightning + tree + my finger = .
 I was amazed cause it went all the way UP the tree. Almost a perfect line.

.....more bark.

Well, I am done for the night.  Good night guys...and girls!!

Long and exhausting day

Well my day started off with my son minutes away from catching on fire.  His temperature was 101.7 and he was hot to the touch.  We cooked a few eggs for breakfast on him before we took him to the doctor cause, lets be real, the stove takes too long to heat up.  We found out he has a serious sinus infection and has to be on singulair, Zyrtec, and an antibiotic that I am not going to attempt to type with out the bottle and I am too lazy to get up and get it.  Anyway, I went off to work and had a talk with my boss about my numbers and found out I have to do at LEAST 25 jobs in 3 days to get by this month.  I took that advice and worked 11 hours with NO lunch and I ended up with 10 jobs!!  It was a long day but I am glad it's over!!  Tomorrow is a half day for me because I have a wonderful root canal to be done that I am SOOOOOO excited about.......I hope you caught the sarcasm.  I have to fit in at least 5 jobs tomorrow in 5 hours.  I think i can manage to do that!! I think I did 4 or 5 today before noon.  Lets make this happen!!!!! just witnessed my motivational speech to myself!!  I do this a lot from jobs to gaffing!!  You can do it, Derrick!!!  That's what I tell myself at least. It works...I think!!

A funny story that my wife told me that I am glad I wasn't a part of.  She went to Wal*Mart to get our prescriptions filled and to find something for dinner tonight.  She got all the stuff done but during  her running through the store, my daughter pooped her diaper and decided to put her hands in her diaper and play with it.  She then decided to scream,"EWWWW, EWWWW"!!  I could not stop laughing when i was told this which my wife did not, at all, find funny!  The laughter stopped when she got home and I had to change her and clean her up.....and let me tell you......OH MY GOD!!!!!

Well, thats all for the night!!  Good night and thanks for reading!!

Good news and bad news...

Well my day started off good when my son woke up and was coughing like a 70 year smoker and I got to go back to bed.  I know what your thinking and yes I would rather him not be sick and go to school because i HATE it when my kids are sick...but I LOVE to sleep when I can.  I got up to the call I was waiting for this morning....My phone interview for a training position at Comcast.  I thought it went pretty good but it's not up to me, it's up to them and I hope they we satisfied with my interview.  Although, during the interview my daughter woke up and started screaming for cereal and  I found myself locked in my son's bedroom closet!  How did that happen?!?!?  Anyway, I got done with that and fixed her a bowl of Fruity Pebbles and me some Apple Cinnamon Cherrios!!  I watched CSI: Miami that I DVR'ed Sunday night, which, is always good.  At around 1 my sister came over to watch the kids so I could go to the dentist.  I have a tooth that has been bothering me and I made the appointment to get it fixed finally.  Well, I go in there and explain my issues and as soon as opened my mouth so he could see for himself he immediately said, "Well there's your problem right there!" which made me excited cause he knew what was wrong and was gonna get me fixed up.  Then he informed me that he was gonna have to schedule a root canal so he liked to do it all in one appointment.  So I agreed and he gave me some medicine for the pain until the appointment which is Wednesday.  He did fill a cavity while I was there so that took care of some of my problem and now I am sitting here with the left side of my mouth numb and I wish it would go away!  Well, thats all for now.  I need to tend to my sick kids.  As always thanks for reading and have a great day!!!

More Random Questions....

Ok, I have been thinking....not intentionally.....and why is it when your dentist wants to know how you have been is when you have a suction thing in your mouth?!?!  I mean, can't we get all the questions out before we start digging in my mouth?  It's ALWAYS at the worst possible time and I just think to myself, "Are you serious or do you really expect me to answer that so you can understand?".  I hate that but they always do it!!

Another thing that bugs me is when you call a help line and get someone from "the other side of the world" and they seem to keep double checking their double checks!  "I told you 5 times already my phone isn't working!" She replies with, "Ok so we need to get dial tone to the phones?"  "YESSSSSSSSS!!!!!"  That boils my brain soup right there more than anything!!!  It's always them too!  If you get anyone else they seem to know exactly what to do and have it done in like 10 min.  

Ok, here is a story about a job I went on a while ago.  It was an internet install and she her house wasn't cable ready meaning she had NO cable lines in this house. Well, we talk a few to figure out where she wanted everything so I informed  her on what I would have to do which included running a line under the house. She understood and I began my work.  I started running the line through the garage to get into the crawl space under the house.  So I crawl under her house 2 or 3 times trying to get this line up through the floor. So, I finally get finished with the job and let the customer know I was done and needed an autograph.  She THEN asked me, "Did you have to crawl under the house at all?!" I told her yes ma'am and she went on to tell me her sewage tank over flowed into her crawl space a week or 2 before.  It was fairly dry under the house but I told her that everything looked ok under there.  She asked me to wash my hand which I did and then she hit me with this:  "Well, I guess I should get your name and number in case you die!"  WHAT?!?!  DIE?!?!?  ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?  I hope I don't die!  I couldn't stop laughing after I got in my van! That got a laugh around the shop.

Well, thats all for tonight.  Again thanks for reading and have a great night!!

Great Day!

Today started out pretty good.  We woke up and went on our, now traditional, trip to huddle for breakfast, which means......WAFFLES!!!!!  Yum Yum, I love me some waffles!  Then we pretty much just hung out the rest a little while, moving the dirt we dug for another flower bed to a hole that has been in our drive way for a while.  For lunch, we went to sonic and ate outside on the tables.  I don't know why they don't have like a small parking lot for those who want to sit outside instead of taking up a spot but oh well, not my problem.  After that we hung out at the park for a little while then went to her mom's to WATCH them dig a hole for a pond which made me tired sitting there watching them work hard!  Now just sitting here working on my blog header which I think turned out fairly well myself.  I am trying to get the hang of this new program called Gimp.  It's kinda like photoshop but it's confusing.  That's how I made my header!  Well, thats all for now.  I gotta fold some laundry with the wife.  I am soooooo excited to fold some laundry.  I'll have a new one tonight and maybe some pictures from the park, if my wife gets a few done.  Have a great rest of the day and again thanks for reading!!!

Working in the Storm

So we were supposedly get severe storms today at work and it seems to wait until I get out of my van to start pouring.  I was in a customer's backyard splicing a line together and as soon as I started to fix the line the bottom fell out of the sky.  The whole time I was saying to myself, "Not yet! Please wait!! Not yet!! A few more minutes!! Please, please, please!!!!"  Of course, that didn't help.  I was getting soaked and looked like an idiot out there without a jacket or umbrella.  As if that wasn't bad enough, My second job was the same a cut line but THIS time it was already pouring down so I brought my umbrella with me.  I got to the spot where I needed to work, bent down, and held he umbrella with my knees.  After a few minutes I felt water on my head.  This isn't possible!  I have an umbrella over my head!  What's up?!?!? I figured out quickly that the umbrella that my wife gave me and said, "Here you can have this one!  I got my new Victoria Secret umbrella!" had a leak and I kept saying to myself, "Are you KIDDING me?!?!  Gee, thanks, Sara!!"  So after getting wet AGAIN even though i had an umbrella I left the house and went to another job where all the work was INSIDE.  This made me happy! :)  All in all, today was a SLOOOOOOOOW day.  I am suppose to get off at 4:30PM but I usually get off a little after or pull back into the shop around 5.  Today I was done by 3!  I had to sit around and wait for my wife to pick me up and she didn't get off until 6:15PM.  I had a LOT of time to I pulled out my laptop and guessed it....MacGyver!!!  I finished my series so now I need something else to start watching.  Now I am sitting at home, DRY, watching the weather.  Well thats all for tonight.  Thanks for reading and I hope you have a GREAT night!!

Just another update

Hey guys, it's just me again.  Just gonna give you an update of whats going on in the Fowler family.

To start, My boss today had some things to say about my new hair and if you don't know I buzzed it all off, not bald, but really, really short.  He told me if I was gonna go with that haircut that I need to get all the "scraggles".  This is a new word i haven't heard or if I have I didn't know what it was then either.  I noticed what he was talking about when my wife cut it but she said it looked fine.  I repeatedly told her that we need to go to go through it again but she said no it was fine.  Well, what do have to say for yourself now, wifey?  Another supervisor walked by and just for a little information this is the supervisor, that one Saturday, gave me a hat when my hair was really long and said that i needed a hat on it to tame it.  Now, with that said, he walked by and saw a stray hair that my WIFE missed, took out his pocket knife and CUT it!!  Really Matt.........?!?!?!?  Was that necessary?!?!  Thanks anyway...I guess?

Now on to my family.  My daughter, Kaydee, has had a HORRIBLE cough for a couple of days but last night she was running a fever of 102 and as if that was bad enough my wife was running around worrying her self to DEATH!!  Yes, I do agree, that a fever of 102 is bad and needs to be addressed but worrying yourself to death isn't getting the fever down it's making things worse. Good news is we got the fever down and we all had a decent night sleep.  My sister took her to the doctor and we found out she has bronchitis and an ear infection.  I tell you what, when she gets sick she likes to go all out!!  We are dosing her with drugs and nursing her back to the Kaydeebug we all know and love seeing run around and giggle!!!  I just hope tonight isn't to bad getting her to sleep but we will see.

On another note, I have been carpooling with my wife to work and its been great riding with her but it HASN'T been great is eating Chic-Fil-A EVERY FRICKIN' MORNING!!!!  Babe, we need to...ya know...change it up day to day!!!  I am enjoying the money we are saving on gas carpooling thats for sure.  Today she got a phone call and talked about 10 minutes, got a beep, talked another 10 minutes, got another this time I was like, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?"  I fell asleep after that until she decided "Oh I forgot my husband was in the car!".  Thats ok, baby, I still love you!!

One more thing before I call it a night.  If you have any topics you think it would be fun to listen to me try and blog about leave me a comment and let me know.  I am thinking of a topic day and picking something to talk about that you pick.  It will make it interesting.  Also let me know if you like or hate my blog if I get enough no's ill stop......maybe....?!?!?!  Good night all!! Have a good one!!!

What a Day!!

Well today was kinda crazy and very painful.  This morning I woke up and got Peyton ready for school and fed him some COOOOOOOOKIE Crisp cereal and got him off to school.  Came home done some laundry and watch my DVR'ed CSI's  and the 2 MacGyver movies I haven't yet seen, which were pretty good I must say.  Must see movies!!!  My problems didn't start until I realized I only had 2 diapers to last me all day.  Well, I went through those fairly quick and tried the rest of the day to put her in Underwear and try to do some potty training.  Well......let's just say she would tell me she had to potty AFTER the she went in her underwear!!  Kaydeebug that's not how this works, baby girl! You need to tell me BEFORE you go, not after! As if that wasn't bad enough, I have been having toothaches that are EXTREMELY painful and I have just been too lazy to call the dentist or just forgot until it started hurting again.  Needless to say I am calling tomorrow to make an appointment and resolve this issue!  Now, my wife is home and not having a good day and I am trying my best to turn it around but so far I am not succeeding.

I just have to add.....if you aren't a MacGyver fan I suggest you get online and watch an episode and I PROMISE you will be hooked like I was back in the 90's! LOL!! All it is is a guy using chemistry and physics to accomplish jobs and subdue enemies.  It's a good educational show for your kids as well!!

As you know, yesterday we had some friends over and our kids played on a slip and slide.  I just want to update you and tell you that we all got fried outside and as you remember my son's shorts kept falling down, well the top part of his butt got burnt where his shorts kept falling down and I have been laughing every time I see his butt.  Now we are ALL in the bed watching Wonder Pets on Nick Jr.  That's it for today.  I hope everyone has a good night and a great day tomorrow!!  Night all!!

Good food and friends!!

Had a blast hanging out yesterday with friends and all the kids!  We all cooked out, ate and watched the kids play in the pool and on the slip and slide. I got sunburned yesterday some how because I wasn't in the sun that much.  If you don't know me I am PALE white and I try to stay in the shade so that I don't get burned but that didn't work for me yesterday.  My son, although, couldn't keep his trucks up so he started answering us to the words "BUTTCRACK" and anytime we said it he would pull his shorts up so we had a kick out of that too.  Of course, we couldn't just sit and watch the kids have fun so we were out slipin' and slidin' with them. I have a video of me that i will post later because someone else took it.  I got AIRBORN on this slide and it was painful.  I think I landed wrong or something cause I could't breathe for a minute!  I also must add that I got my head shaved yesterday and it was FREE......cause my wife did it!!  She did a good job too I might add.  I'll tell you one thing it feels a lot better than the mop I had going on!!  I'll have pics of my before and after pics on here later when I have some extra time!!  Well that's all for now i have to go pick my son up at preschool.  Hope everyone has a good day!!

The Joy of Fatherhood

When I was a teenager I loved going out with friends and just hanging out maybe get into a little trouble.  Staying up all night playing video games and drinking an entire 24 pack of coke. Those were the days.......!  I remember the time me and some friends went to this "haunted" church to determine for ourselves whether it was haunted or not.  We got there and went in to check it out and of course it's pitch lack and all you can see were blue flames from the heathers they had on (which was kinda spooky in itself).  We walked around for a few minutes and decided to go upstairs and check out this room.  My friend started to open the door and got it not even half the way open and........BAMMM!!!!!!  The door slammed shut and she turned to me and said, "That wasn't me!" so we RAN out of there as fast we can got in our car and left!!!  We got a little ways down the road and decided to go back and check it out but it was all good when we rechecked it.

I know your asking yourself, "Why is he telling me this?!?" Well, because when my son was born, I have become a completely different person from what i was as a teenager.  With birth of my son, I feel like i have became a little more maturer and a lot more responsible. I find myself driving down the road yelling at all the kids with their system pounding in there cars and then I realize, "IDIOT, I had one when i was in high school and used to blare it all the time day or night!"  Kids can change your life for the better or the worse but it's up to you to determine how it affects your life.  For me, it was for the good!!  The down side of it is, it's hard to find time to hang out with friends because we either have to bring them or find a babysitter which is tough sometimes.  I find myself wanting to stay at home a lot of the time anyone just to hang out and see what my kids get into. LOL! If you are wanting kids or trying for kids, I wish you good luck in your efforts and I hope you take my advice and enjoy every minute of being a father and/or mother!!

The reason behind this post tonight is because my son asked me, "Daddy if i eat all my food and after we clean my room can we watch a movie of when you were little?"   How can you turn that down?  We are sitting here now (Thurs. April 7, 2011 @ 8:33PM) watching one of my pee-wee football games.  It must be super boring cause he fell asleep.  Oh well!!!!! LOL!!

Well I believe thats all for tonight, but before I go I want to ask a quick question that asked my wife and she couldn't answer and i wonder if anyone could answer it truthfully.  My father-in-law is a firefighter and he went on a call today for a wreck and she said that he described the lady as in the wreck as being pregnant and she had to be life flighted.  I thought to myself a minute and asked her this:

"If your were pregnant and got into a serious car accident and survived but the baby died whereas you would've died if you were not, would you be thankful that you survived or would you wish it would have killed you and spared the baby?"

She couldn't answer that and i was just curious.  Well goodnight all!!  Have a great night and a better day tomorrow!!

Rough Day and randomness

Man......I am beat today!!  You never know the true damage of a big storm until you work for a utility company.  Trees knocking down cable lines, lightning frying our amps and splitters.  Its crazy the things we have to go repair over and over again.  It just wears on ya and just tires you out.

While I was at work I got a call from my wife telling me she was leaving work and taking my daughter to the doctor because she broke a night light bulb in her mouth and swallowed some  glass.  She wasn't bleeding but they took her as a precaution to take x-rays and make sure there is no internal damage.  We are just watching her close. That scared the hell out of me but when she explained everything to me it calmed me down a lot.

So, have you ever had those dreams where you are running from someone or something and you can never seem to get a footing or even stand up?  Why is that? That gets on my nerves and I just wake up out of frustration! But I tell you that to tell you seems like I dream some amazing stories for movies.  I wake up in the morning and ask myself what the hell was that?!?  I have some crazy dreams but I can't seem to remember any of them or at least none have been good enough to give a second though but when I remember a good one you can bet your ass I will let you know.

Well, I am out of interesting things to say...not saying all that was but hey.  Hope everyone has a good night cause I know I will cause I am extremely tired.  Night all!!

Brain Stew

       Ever thought who your doctor sees when he's sick or if your dentist does his own work?  That's what i think about and wonder.  Yes stupid I know but I bet you are thinking about it now!!!!  Well my day has been kinda like that but mostly slow and boring.  I won't bore you with that cause it really wasn't that interesting.  But instead I will enlighten you and give you a nice recipe of what like to call Brain Stew!! Enjoy!!

       First on my agenda is stupid and careless drivers.  Too many people today are either preoccupied with something whether it be phones or just being plain stupid.  I had a guy almost run me down today at work and he jerked his steering wheel to get back in his lane.........really........didn't see that Comcast van right there? That's like a jet liner almost hitting another jet liner.  IT'S NOT THAT HARD TO SEE!!!!! Also those drivers that ride the right lane on the interstate or just on a two-lane highway when they know the whole damn time they need to turn left.  To these people, I hope you run into a statue of David and his giant concrete sack falls on your face and gives you a scar that is permanent so when asked you have to say David's sack fell on your face!!!

       Next is our dear president Obama........(deep breath).........(exhale).  What are you doing to so call "change" anything?!?  Next election I am going to enter my son and I bet he gets more votes that he does and I bet he could make more happen that him.  I heard our soldiers over seas may or were getting there assets frozen. What about you Mr. President?  Can we freeze yours? Or how about we garnish yours and invest that in getting our soldiers home?!?!  There are many families out there scared that there loved ones are not coming home and the only thing you can do is freeze their assets??  Also I am sick of all the press conferences you do! Every other day you are taking up valuable air time bullshitting your way through a conference when millions of people could be watching Price is Right!!!  Guess what Obama? The price is wrong, BITCH!!!!

       Here is another random thought I just had........our plumbing, cable, and electric lines run under our house so why do we have to crawl through mud and bang our knees on excess concrete that has dried under black plastic that we didn't know what there until we NAILED our damn knee on it and cried like a little girl? Why can we all have nice concreted basements to WALK in to replace or repair all these things?  Wouldn't that be easier?!?!?!   I mean come on think a minute. Do you wanna have to belly crawl 100ft to replace any of that? I didn't think so!! I rest my case. Key words here are "walk" and "basement"!!!! 

       One thing that did happen today that I could stop laughing at just happened about an hour ago.  I came home from work and changed to go outside to play a little baseball with my son. After about 30 or 45 minutes of us playing, my wife decided, "Hey, i wanna hit some!"  So I continued to pitch to her and to my surprise she was actually hitting the crap out of it.  Well she let my daughter swing at one on her own and if you don't know my daughter she is short and 2.  She swung at this ball LONG after it went by her and fell to the ground.  My wife looked at me and said. "She got her batting skills from you!"  I replied, "No she gets it from you because I don't suck that bad!"  She simply replied (loudly i might ask), "Uh ugh I NAILED THOSE BALLS!"  I then found myself laughing hysterically and looking around to see if anyone was outside, which, there wasn't or it would've been much more funny!  Good one, babe!!!

     Lastly, I would like to make a shout mean shout at........those people that make a big deal about shit no one can help.  For example, if a storm comes through and knocks your service line whether it be cable, power, or phone.  We can't help that but we can fix it it just takes time so please BE PATIENT AND WAIT LIKE EVERYONE ELSE WITHOUT SERVICE!!!  There are millions of people that want there service back on and you bitching and whining isn't getting it fixed any faster so SHUT UP AND WAIT!!!!  Also, what has the world coming to that we offer caller ID on our TV's and PC's??  I mean, REALLY??!?!?!?   GET YOUR LAZY ASS UP AND ANSWER YOUR DAMN PHONE!?!?!?!?! People sit back and study why our society if being consumed by obesity...............GET UP OFF YOUR ASS EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE AND MOVE AROUND!!!!!!!  And if you think I am talking about you.....don't worry.........I prolly am!!!!!! 

      Ok I am finished for tonight.  I am sure you are sick of my complaining and randomness.  Everyone please have a good night and I leave you with this Brain Worm:

"If the world will end December 22, 2012 why do we keep making plans for 2013?"

So everyone shut up about the world ending if you are planning events after this date!!!

New Blog and my day today

Ok well i am new at this blog thing but i got bored tonight and needed something to do so...........BOOM a new blog was started!!  Well today started off cold....literally.....i woke up freezing!!  It was an amazing 58 degrees in the house, prolly because we left our windows open all night but anyway i was cold. So we got up got ready and went to Huddle House for breakfast which, if you know me well enough, that means WAFFLES!!  I love their waffles!! After that we went to my dads house to get my wife's car's oil changed.  This is the 2nd time i have changed oil my self and i must say i enjoy it!  My dad has showed me a lot of useful information on what to check. Now don't start calling me up and asking me questions.....i'm not that good!  While we were there my son decided to ask his neighbor's kids to play.  He didn't know them at all!!  He's not shy folks!!  To finish up the day we went to my in-laws to grill out and eat hamburgers and hotdogs!!!  They were awesome!!! Then home to take a nap!! That was even more awesome!! After the hour nap, my wife decided to go to the store and get the kids a bat and ball and a kite.  We started with this cheap kite from the dollar store which never flew just spun in a circle and hit the ground like a brick. We got the bat and ball out and let Peyton hit a little and to my surprise he is getting really good and hitting but needs to work on how to not throw like a girl......COME ON SON THROW LIKE A MAN, or at least a boy!! LOL!!!!  My neighbors came over to view our mysterious puppies.  Ok, long story short, I have a long haired Pomeranian dog with i would say is prolly light blond and the puppies she had are short haired WHITE fur with black or brown spots, not sure.  We cannot find for the life of us the father of these!!!  There aren't any dogs in our neighborhood like these puppies and our dog never goes out of our neighborhood.  WHAT THE HELL?!?!?!?! We are still investigating this situation and i will keep you informed.  Well I seem to have ran out of interesting topics so im gonna leave it at that and watch some Mythbusters!!!  Later!
