Looking Forward

Posted in Nonsense with tags , , , on January 3, 2012 by Bob

Going to take a little break from my lame attempts at humor today. Last week I was off of work and got to spend every day with my little bug. The wife was working last week so I had a lot of down time while the littlest voice was taking her naps. It gave me time to think about a lot of things that have and have not happened over the last year. I determined that “staycations” are NOT a good thing for me. Most of the things that got to my during my thinking was work related. Without getting too much into things, I realized how let down and disillusioned I was becoming. At least when I am AT work, I do my job and I don’t over think things. I went back to work today and let myself get flooded with thoughts about a lot of everything. It took me most of the day to relax, tell myself to just go with it and be thankful for what I do have.

Of course I wish I could do something I really enjoy like writing every day. I really want to thank all of you that read me every day and make me feel like someday all my hopes and dreams will come true and my blog will be optioned for a 7 part movie series that will make me millions and then I can just stay home with Tori every day and just write new episodes and that would be my career. Ok more so my delusional fantasies than dreams. I guess it really is closer to reality to put my hopes on becoming a Muppeteer. Aaaaaaaannnnd on that note, it is time to take my meds and hit the sack.

How Long Can I Keep It Up?

Posted in Nonsense, Tori, Vacation with tags , , on December 28, 2011 by Bob

I have to admit, the prospect of a year of posting every day finally comingĀ  an end is VERY appealing. On the other hand, I wonder how much I can keep it going past the 1 year goal. I kind of think that come March when little Nicodemus Dude Bartholomew Wonderbutt Donatello gets here, it will be harder to keep up. With 4 days left, I suppose I should be trying to come up with something a little better than my usual fare. Rest assured I am busy playing with Tori this week since I am off work and it is me and her all on our own. I have found that I love this. If anyone wants to give me a million dollars so I can quit my job and just stay home with Tori, I would be grateful.

Going back to something I was saying one day, I am working on a few things for the end of the year. Or is it for the beginning of the year? I can’t remember. I will have something the next three or 4 days, and then I will have a few things after those days and a few things after that. I may take a day off in the new year or I may keep writing. Yeah, I am this close to falling asleep. Tori tires me out but I love it. Yeah, you might get three days of Tori stuff.

We’re Getting There

In more ways than one.

A) We are getting closer to my vacation time. Right now it feels like a big mistake waiting until the end of the year to take the bulk of my vacation. I know thought that I will think differently once the time comes for me to be away from work though.

B) We are getting closer to the end of the year when I can take a small break from blogging … maybe. I have felt 2 ways about posting every day … exhausted and proud. It is something I make sure I do even when we go out so it is a feeling of accomplishment. Of course there are the days I look at the computer and think … “Crap”

C) We are getting closer to Tori’s 1st birthday. FIRST BIRTHDAY! Holy crap where did the time go?! It literally feels like it was just yesterday that we were bringing her home. It is so true what everyone says that it goes by so fast and to treasure every moment. I really do try to. If I didn’t have this annoying thing called work, I would stay home with her in a heartbeat! I love every little thing she does and I wish we could catch it all. I have seriously considered setting up cameras around that would tape her all the time. Yeah, I could be THAT dad. After all, I need to have a bunch of pictures of her for when she is famous and on Letterman right?

My First

Posted in Holiday, Nonsense with tags , , , , , on June 18, 2011 by Bob

I am enjoying my first Father’s Day weekend. I spent the day with my two favorite ladies today. We spent the day out shopping, relaxing and then came home and had a nice grilled chicken, Veggie Kabob, and Couscous dinner. It was my own marinade and it was actually pretty good.

Tomorrow we are going out to dinner with my dad and last week night we went out with Jackie’s dad.

Best part of today was spending it with Tori. Tomorrow will be the same, except I think Papa might try to be with Tori a lot since he spoils her.

To all my fatherly friends out there…HAPPY FATHER’S DAY!!
