Lately I have been taking personal inventory, its been a hard look in the mirror.  Here are a few changes I would like to make in order to progress as a person.

1.  I am a great starter but a mediocre finisher, my goal is to become great at both starting a finishing. By great finisher I mean completing tasks promptly.
2.  I need to kick my diet coke habit.  I've tried but to no avail.  I know val is sick of hearing me talk about it.
3. I need to get back in shape, many years of injuries are adding up and extra weight only makes then worse.
currently i am 220 and would like to be around 170.  Its in the works.
4.  I need to be more patient with my 3 year old, he is awesome and sometimes I am to short with him or expect to much of him because he can talk like an 8 year old so I expect him to act like one.
5.  I need to start and maintain a personal Journal, making it a habit.   

this is it for now, let the games begin.

its been a this thing on?

Here is a quick list of pet peeves.
1. Wrong way parking, it ticks me off when people park facing the wrong way on the street. To the point where I turn into an old man and must comment every time. Every part of me wants to call crime stoppers and report this crime against America but they are to busy trying to catch drug dealers. Hello people wrong way parkers are the real criminals, its a gateway crime!
2. 4 way stops, it may be a stretch to say 25% of people know how to use a 4 way stop. For this I request all 4 ways are replaced with roundabouts and if you can figure out how to use a round about then I request you replace your car with a bus pass. The awkward is it my turn then everyone sits there and then goes at the same time so you have to wave some one, I hate it!

hello my name is dr green thumb

So this summer I decieded to plant a garden and thanks to the late snow I acutally ended up planting two gardens. The first was from seeds I started in this little greenhouse with moss pellets that looked like sushi rolls. I tended to those littel suckers but they all were killed by the snow. So the second go around we cheated and went to the local nursehy and picked up some nice juvinile plants, planted those suckers and only one is partially dead at this point so we are batting about 94% the second go around. Me and the nino are all about our garden, we check on it multiple times aday, its like we are worried some phantom gopher or the DEA is going to raid our stash. But when it all gets ripe I guess we can be the weird people at chruch trying to give tomatoes away. Check out our green thumbs at work! Oh yeah, check out Finn he gardens shirtless, yeah he's hardcore like that!

Extreme B.O. Control

I just bought some new deodorant, and that's not rare I go through that stuff like crazy. I have a strong dislike that borders into the ocd realm for Body Odor! So I picked up the usual 5 pack at Costco, but the usual it was not. This new deodorant had printed on the label, activated by adrenaline. This concerns me, I don't know if I am hardcore enough for this deodorant. In my younger/thinner/good back days no problem, but you see I have settled down in my old age. What am I going to do? Is this deodorant not going to work for me? Do i need to do something extreme like jump off the stairs from my front porch or drive fast every morning to get it working? What happened to the deodorant for normal dudes, not everyone is a card carrying member of the nitro circus. I hope I can live up to my deodorants expectations if not I guess ill have to start using the female variety.......which has been know to happen occasionally, sorry Val!

Sad Sad Day

Its a sad sad day there are only 3 more weeks of football left, I have already mourned the college football season ending although USC has made things interesting and continues to do so. So chalk one up for the colts the family in Muncie are some happy Indians right about now, Peyton is a surgeon. And how about those Vol fans what class, talk about amazing artwork on the rock, nothing helps hiring a new coach like male parts and 4 letter words painted on rocks!
