My friend d4dad spoke to us the other night about focus. I have to say that his message really came through to me. I have already seen improvement in my ability...WHOA!!! DID YOU SEE THE SIZE OF THAT CHICKEN!!!

Like I was saying, we had a very pleasant Memorial Day. The kids and I made a quick trip to the park to chase the ducks and play on the playground in the morning. Later in the evening we went to the community water park by the house. It is a really great place for the kids to play. They have a blast. Especially Owen who is a little more of a risk taker than the other two. Of course our fun came to a end when some other kid threw up in the pool. Luckily we were no where near the event and not even in the same pool.

Here is too a summer full of water parks and throw up!

Self Help with Skelty

A reader of mine, Mike Honcho, is going through a rough stretch right now. Mike, just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right in the eye and says, "Give me your best shot. I can take it."

God Bless!!

Bathroom Humor

I will probably lose all of my 12 readers with this topic, but this is something I can't tolerate anymore! People need to learn the rules of bathroom etiquette. I am working on the rule book, but I have included the cliff notes for those parties that are interested. They are as follows:

1 Do not talk to me while I am in a stall
2 Do not talk to me while I am standing at the urinal
3 You may talk to me while you are at the urinal and I am at the sink, but not the other way around
4 Do not talk to me if you are in a stall and I am at the sink
5 You may talk to me while we are both at the sink
6 Wash your hands
7 Flush
8 Do not talk on the phone while you are in a stall
9 Do not call me while you are in a stall (If I find out, I will drive to where you are and kick you in the nads)
10 Do not take a drink into the bathroom (allowed if there is a table in the bathroom that is a reasonable distances from where you do your business)
11 Flush!!!!! (Seriously, did you forget why you were there? I do not understand why people don't flush)

While on the topic of bathroom humor, I thought I would include this video. I hope Jesus is safe!

Ten Things Tuesday

I thought about this yesterday, does that count? I was going to do this last night, but I had a date with the PSP last night.

1 I am thankful for my PSP. Portable video games, can you get any lazier?
2 I am thankful that Mia has an endless supply of the word Daddy. I know at some point I won't hear it as often.
3 I am thankful to hear the kids running around the house. There is a line in an Alan Jackson song "The sound of little feet, was the music we danced to week to week." I am ready for a new house, but I am going to miss that sound.
4 I am thankful that Owen likes me to retrieve his ball from under the entertainment center and then throw it right back under.
5 I am thankful for Jackson's sense of humor. I love watching laugh at something on TV to the point he is almost out of breath.
6 I am thankful that Jackson is an outgoing person, I just hope he gets a better understanding of personal space.
7 I love to hear Mia sing.
8 I am thankful that I am the only one in the office today. (I may sneek home a little early).
9 I am thankful that I had a chance to mow the yard last night before the rain. It would've been a jungle by the time I could get to again.
10 I am thankful that my boss is letting me fly to Portland next week so I can be at the platinum level on American Airlines. I am also sad because that is important to me.

Ten Things Tuesday

XBOX wife has a wonderful exercise to promote positivity. Check out her blog and join in the fun.

1. I am thankful that my kids are healthy. I have been receiving a prayer request for a little boy who was in an accident and is now in the hospital. I fear my children being seriously sick or hurt. I pray that the little guy will be OK.
2. I am thankful for the storms we had this morning.
3. I am thankful that soccer season is over.
4. I am thankful for being home these last few weeks, and I look forward to being here a little longer.
5. I am thankful that I understand bathroom etiquette. (A new post will follow)
6. I am thankful for a short commute to work, especially with gas prices so high.
7. I am thankful that the kids have been acting more like people and less like monsters lately. They were on a tear for a while. Of course Jennifer might disagree with this.
8. I am thankful for friends that ask us for a night on the town. I wish we would've had time to participate, but it was nice to be asked.
9. I am thankful for a clean house. Jennifer worked really hard the last few weeks to unclutter the clutter as best she could. I might also add that we have done a good job of maintaining the cleanliness.
10. I am thankful for my dad taking time out of his day to come fix my dryer. It took longer for him to drive over to the house than it did to fix it. He hates driving in that traffic, and his body is breaking down on him so I am incredibly thankful for the help.
