summer daze

So summer is here and almost gone. The kids start school in less than a month and K has started training for another year of cross country. I am so amazed with this child. It seems like we have to beat her in to running at first then she just takes off. She was told by her coach that she needed to run at lest 3 miles a day. This didn't seem like to much to ask, so we have been going to run/walk with her in the evenings. e rides his bike, the wife runs or jogs and I walk with baby S. It is a good time. Of course this is every other week because K&E go to their dads for a week at a time in the summer. The other night I told her she was to run 6 miles and she looked at me with that look that teenage girls do so well and said no problem. she did it too not arguing no back talk just ran her ass off. after running 5 and a half miles I told her I wanted to see what she had left and the little smart ass ran a 4 min half mile. I was stunned. she was tired after but she ran her ass off. I was proud of her and hope that maybe this year she will find a little bit of competitive side that requires her to push herself. I guess it's good that she will run for the joy of running but I would so love to see her better her times and beat this one girl in particular. Oh well I guess at least she does something.

family pics

So today we went and had the dreaded family pics taken. Now I know that you would think that with this being my business this would be a piece of cake.... Not the case. If you ever heard me taking my own children's pics you would never let me near yours. I hate to take their pics. Its not that they are bad kids or anything like that it's just that they don't listen to me. So today I walked in and looked at my photographer and told her it was her game I had nothing in it, to do with us what she would. It was as great shoot. the kids smiled for her and we got some great pics. We even got to have an extra family member. (baby S would not put down his Penguin)
The wife and I got a pic of just he two of us it seems like forever since that has happened. So after a stress free photo shoot we are going to reward the kids and go to a drive-in movie tonight. Yeah!!!

Katie Reider you will be missed.

I received the very sad new today that a wonderful person has passed on. Katie Reider was a performer from here in Ohio. She and her partner had moved to NY with their 2 children so Katie could pursue her music. She was struck with a very rare cancer and fought the good fight until early this morning when she was called home. Her voice will live on and the lives she touched will forever be changed.
Thanks Katie now rock the angels.

life update

So after 2 days of random power outages we have had power this evening and i thought I would take the time to update a bit. We had a great time at pride, I wish that more days could be like that. We went to The in laws for the 4Th it was a good day. We also saw the fireworks on the 5Th with my mom and my bob. It was Baby S's 2ND birthday and I can not believe that my baby is 2, I am just not sure where the time has gone. The two older kids came home on Sunday and we have had a great week so far. On Monday we went to the lake and then came home to no power, the official story is that there was animal contact. Now I don't know about you but it must have been one hell of an animal to knock put power for almost 15 hours. We made the best of it and built a camp fire and roasted hot dogs for dinner. the kids had fun. we then played hide and seek till it was time for bed. No sooner did the wife and I get all snugly in bed that the power came back on. we then had to run around and turn off all the lights that we had on. i got up and went to work early on Tues and when I came home the wife was in the garage she let me know that we once again had no power. this time it was a tree down on a major line,blah blah blah. So K had started a roast earlier that was done so last night dinner consisted of roast beef and bread and butter. I know what healthy eaters we are. So today i went to work only to call every hour to be told that yes we still have power. It has been a good day and over all a good start to summer.

In other news the wife has quit her job. She was up fora promotion at work and the hiring manager is known to be a homophobic prick. She didn't even get a real interview she was told that 3 other Men were much more qualified. This is bull ans she called them on it. Then the trouble started. She had never been so much as late to work and she has gotten excellent on all her evals. but they started to nit pick and I told her not to put up with it. I make enough for us to get by and it is so not worth her aggravation to deal with that. The exciting part is she is now going to finally use her GI bill and go back to school!!!!!!! She has wanted to for a long time but lacked the confidence to do so. This is just the push she needed. I am so excited for her. She is going to be a Radiology Technician. I can't wait to see her in scrubs ;)
well I have rambled on for far to long so more later.

sister in need of help!

I very rarely try and get anyone to donate their hard earned money to a cause that is not dear to them, but this lady needs our help and it's just a buck. I am enclosing a link. If you think it's worth it she could really use the help.
