I love my daughter

I am sitting here in my living room with my daughter while she does homework.  TV is off.  Stereo is on.  What she likes touches me.  She pays attention to the lyrics.  I can tell she has a good soul.  She is so amazing.  I love her more than anything in this entire universe.  She’s so pretty and I love her so much that it hurts sometimes.  I tear up when I think of how wonderful she is.  She’s growing up too fast for me.  I want more time with her.  Time is the one thing we cannot get back.  We need to use it wisely and take care of ourselves so that we can maximize our time with people we love.  <——— This is very important.

I love you so much Elsa.  You are the love of my life sweetheart.  I will always love you, no matter what.  I will not judge you.  I will always forgive you.  I will always help you when you need help.  After my body dies (of natural causes….nothing is planned folks), I will always be with you.  My soul will be by your side always.  Stay Beautiful my love.

Grab-bag O’ Thoughts

► Don’t spend too much time in NYC, it will make you calloused.

► I’m blown away by the amount of bullshit that is on TV. People actually watch this vein crap? Are you fucking serious?

► I’m thankful for my little cozy house that I complain about sometimes because I have it better than most.

► I really love how in NYC there is no room so they just pile up trash on the sidewalks. Yuck.

► The 2012 presidential election may just be the first time I don’t vote. I think they are all jackasses.

► I started to like the show American Horror Story….then it just got too dark (evil).

► I do like the show “The Walking Dead”.

► I hate ads and commercials with a passion. If I had to give up my DVR I would quit watching TV. I only watch recorded things that I can fast-forward.

► I don’t watch “the news” on TV and haven’t for 7 or 8 years.

► The Chambers Hotel in NYC is over-priced and not all that it’s cracked up to be.

► I need to buy a new battery for my car.

► I really like 1095 carbon steel.

► I can’t imagine living somewhere that does not get snow around Christmas.

► I think Apple Computers are the best computers ever made.

► I am amazed by everything my iPhone can do.

► There is NOTHING like an ice cold Coca-Cola.

► I lost my coat in a rental car.

► Male flight attendants are weird and seem “stuck up” to me.

► There don’t seem to be a lot of fat people in NYC. I wonder if it is due to everyone walking so much?

► I need to write in my blog more. I always think of stuff to write about and then I forget it.

► Words with Friends is a great game.

► Merry Christmas!

Love my job

I’m thankful to have a job that I love. I seriously am. I don’t take it for granted one day. I work for as an IT guy for an NFL team and it’s the best job I’ve ever had. Some days you work hard but you also get to play hard. It is the first job I’ve ever had that I sometimes don’t want to take a vacation day from because I have that much fun at work. I love what I do. I actually get paid to do my hobby. I’m not usually one to toot my own horn but I’m very good at what I do and I will keep it that way.

Right now I’m sitting at home and thinking that I’m off tomorrow and actually wondering if I should just go in to work instead. I know I sounds crazy but I like my job that much. Not many people can say that.

I’m thankful to God for all that He’s given me.

Hospital with kid…

Right now I’m in the hospital with my little girl. Dehydrated and throwing up and has diarrhea. Things like this make you realize how fragile we all are and how thankful that I should be to have such a beautiful family. I’m blessed to have the health-care that I currently do.

I’m thankful to God daily for my family and little girl. Some days I am not thankful enough.

For those of you out there going through a similar situation where you have a sick kid in the hospital hooked up to an IV or something similar, give it to God. Give your worry to Him. He will help you. He has never let me down. I however never question “why me”, because I figure “why not me?” I’m just as available as someone else.

Life is not fair or easy. Do your best.

God Bless. Life’s short.

Thankful in these tough times.

Yesterday I took a Gallup poll on the phone.  It took about ten minutes.  During the poll I was realizing my answers showed that I am very blessed.  The gentleman on the phone said that I am very lucky and that most people are not that happy in this current economy.

So I just really wanted to express the fact that sometimes you forget how good you have it.  I’m very thankful for all that I have.

If you can afford to help others in need, do it.  If you need help, don’t be afraid to ask.  These are tough times and I am thankful to God that they are not affecting me yet.

Sounds and smells of the home…

As I sit here on a large chair in the living room this morning I realize that I love the sounds around me.  I’m very thankful for them.

I am sitting on a chair with my feet up on an ottoman and reading some knife stuff on the web with my laptop.  There is snow on the ground outside and it’s about 18° Fahrenheit outside. The TV is off (like it should be) and I can hear things.

My wife in the kitchen poring a second cup of coffee.  Her spoon clanging against the cup as she stirs it.  My daughter singing in the play room as she plays.  One of my cats playing with an enclosed ball type of thingy where the ball spins around in a circle.  The smell of pancakes is in the air along with coffee.  I can hear the mantle clock in the living room with me ticking back and forth.  I can hear the warm soothing air blowing out of the heating vents.

I”m thankful for all these things.  It’s very nice to not have the “Boob Toob” on and actually just listen to things now and then.  I’m tired of the bullshit that’s on TV and all of the media anyway.  I’m thankful that I live in a house with a furnace and can enjoy listening to all these things.
