NASCAR on Monday [03 Aug 2009|02:21pm]
I gotta tell ya. I really hate it when NASCAR is on Monday. I mean aside from waiting half of Sunday for the darn thing to start you then have to go to work and watch it there.

It's just not the same

A few new things (living, blah yada yada) [03 Mar 2009|08:05am]
Well, after a month or so of looking Carrie and I have finally moved into a rental house. Now it's not that I have anything against the idea of renting but let's be honest it's not something either of us plan or hope to be doing for a long period of time.

The place has four bedrooms and 1 1/3 baths. I say 1/3 because one of the bathroom is an elevated toilet inside one of the bedrooms. I call it the crap-pit and frankly I don't plan on using it for two reasons 1. I dont plan on coming in the back door often 2. I don't like the idea of climbing in to a toilet area. So ya.

It also has a wood burning stove in the place which I've never used in a house, just in my grandpop's garage. It keeps the place quite warm but sometimes a little too warm so we've had to open the porch door a few times.

The outside isn't anything special, actually parts of it looks like the junk yard that the owner has made around his trailer/barn area but the inside doesn't have any real defects and there's no smell so I can't complain too much.

The guy has been helpful, he changed out the plugs on my dryer and stove (even though I could have used his stove, but come on our stove is  a flat top) He's done everything he has said he would so far so I can't complain their.

We also got a new 42" plasma last night. Our old tube tv was very red and while I'll keep it around it doesn't compare to this thing. We watched Cars on it last night with CJ and considering that Direct TV said they can't be out til March 15 we may be watching more movies/playing Wii in the next weeks. The internet is supposed to come today so maybe we will hook up the ole' cable and watch that on it.

As for working. I got a greart feeling about this whole house selling thing. It'd be better if more people had signed contracts instead of saying they would but that's how things go. Supposed to be going to Menards on Thusday for breakfest so see how that turns out.

Matt Kenseth blew up on Sunday, oh well can't win them all and if you really think about it he still has a 10 point lead over Kyle Busch considering the stupid playoff system NASCAR has.

Two in a row? [23 Feb 2009|08:19am]
Honestly I figured Matt would win a race this year but never figured he would win at Daytona and then follow it up with a dominating performance at California.

Commentators will make a big deal about an 81 point lead this early in the year but really when the chase starts its just 20 points and that's not counting when others win in the remaining 24 races before the chase starts.

Wins are wins though. w000000000000000

Oh ya I think I'll just use my LJ as a way to track this stuff. I can write more on here then I can on the calendar where I draw little dots for who I got in a right with. Hah

Another day, another fight with Carrie 1/14/08 [14 Jan 2009|09:54am]
[ mood | aggravated ]

May have seen this one before guys

Father In-Law: What you guys going to do today?

Me: Same thing we did the last two days. Nothing

Father In-Law: You were fighting the last two days.

Me: Ya. And we did nothing.


Anyway this Peanuts comic from a few days ago made me chuckle.

Another day, another fight with Carrie [12 Jan 2009|05:57pm]
[ mood | groggy ]

Who would have guessed?

I talked to my mom and well I can't lie that I'm pretty much expecting to leave Carrie at some point soon. I can only take so much of her bullshit.

I'd go further into details but it's not like any of you people actually read my journal anyway.
I could say "Free Toaster with every Reply" and not get a comment back.

Finishing up the Maryland trip [01 Jan 2009|11:14pm]
Carrie (wife) CJ (my 9 month old son) and I arrived in Maryland Sunday morning. It's been a sometimes fun week that has flown by all too quickly.

We will be heading out of Maryland tomorrow (Thursday). I've had an alright time but you can only stay so long especially when you are staying with a guy you hardly know and your mom.
Things get a little odd and well you feel like they are pushing you to the door. Maybe they are maybe they aren't but it kinda feels that way. Did last time too. Can't say we do a lot when we are here but ah well you get the point.

Mom got CJ his playhouse (woot!) and a few other toys and has been pretty accompanying with meals even if they don't usually eat breakfast or lunch. Seriously what the hell? It has been over four months since we last were here, hopefully it won't be as many til the next visit but you never know.

Maybe we do stay too long but I don't know. When you don't visit for that long at a time yo u kinda want some time together. Don't you?

Anyway went and say my dad today. Gotta admit it wasn't nearly as bad as last time and even though we just watched three episodes of Cheyenne it was almost enjoyable. I called him after we left cause I don't know we just feel like we should spend a little more time with him tomorrow before we leave.

He got CJ some kind of remote control airplane from the Bee Movie. Not sure what he expects him to do with it since CJ is 9 months old but I guess it's the thought that counts. He also gave us one of them remote planes that he was going to give us last time til I said "I don't know what I'd do with that." He also gave us money and he talked about selling some of the land behind the house. He also talked about moving and at one point asked us about two story farm houses in Indiana. I may be reading too much into this but that was a little odd.

Even though we haven't been that close over the last 5-6 years I have to admit I got a little teary as I left from his place again. I don't know. I kinda feel sorry for the man sometimes. It's not all his fault I suppose and I have to say we certainly weren't poor or deprived growing up. We might not of had the best of everything but we didn't go without eating and Christmas was always a good time.

It did make me feel bad that I didn't give him anything. (though we didn't exchange gifts last year either, probably because we didn't visit until April?) But there is a reason for me not getting him anything this year. I was going to at least print him some photos of CJ and put them in a album but my genius wife forgot that she took the damn things in RAW mode and the Kodiak machines can only read image files like jpg and gif. Oh well maybe we will see him tomorrow and I can give him some pictures.

Live Journal I will try to post to you more in 2009. That is my resolution.

Played Nintendo Wii yesterday for the first time [30 Dec 2008|09:00am]
Well I had played it in the wal-mart once but I think the nunchuck was broken. Anyway my arm hurts from bowling and Carrie said her left side of her back is hurting.

Toss in my foot started hurting in wal-,mart (not sure if its wii related) and I'll tell you this thing is dangerous.

get eh... gotta go to tirerack today [23 Dec 2008|09:21am]
[ mood | amused ]

Gotta go to the tirerack today. Tired of riding around on the donut. Hah!

Can't wait for the upcoming trip to MD.

To quote a person off city-data

"I think the positives way outweigh the negatives. In a nutshell, it's really expensive to rent (compared to most of the country) and traffic is unbelievably awful. But...there are tons of jobs, educational opportunities galore, great food, decent shopping, always always something to do between DC and Baltimore. Plus we have mountains, water, farmlands all within the state!

I would live here forever if I could."

We'll I don't know about forever but seriously Indiana ssssssuuuuuuuuuuucccccccckkkkkkkks. You gotta respect someone who said "decent" shopping, I mean decent is such a decent word to use.

The other day the father in-law asked if I could live in one area where would it be? and well I guess you all know what I said.

Carrie's back to being a bitch [20 Dec 2008|11:52am]
Nothing more to say. Bitch is talking about me needing to work or some crap and I get a job offer (not in Indiana) and she flips.

She claims she talks to me but she dont.Her way of dealing with things she dont wanna deal with is to not talk and hope they go away. Her dad has been bitching at her for months about the cats she has living under his office and still no progress. She emailed some ppl on Tuesday but wont call them insisting that "What if they haven't checked their email yet?"

She told me to go away a few minutes ago but I asked her where can I go? She dont want me to have any friends or fun and she says I'm the controlling one.

can't wait to go to MD [18 Dec 2008|03:31pm]
Gotta admit I'm really looking forward to visiting the old stomping grounds this holiday season. Frankly I've had it up and above my head with the crap here in Indiana and well a vacation is always welcomed.

Currently we are planning to leave sometime after Christmas (maybe even that night or the 26th) and heading that way.

I wonder what everyone will think when they see CJ at nearly 9 months. They haven't seen him in months. Was it July? Gosh where did the time go?

I don't know what we will do when we are there, certainly taking the boat out is not an option and well the O's are years away from being a baseball team.

Drama @ the House [30 Nov 2008|08:21pm]
looks like Dawn is "moving out" to live with Willie 103.5 (some 22 year old guy that works at Dairy Queen)

Now the 'rents are all up in arms and they just letting crap fly all over the house. She should have known texting her mom she was moving in was a dumb idea. Knowing a guy 3 months and moving in with him soon as she turns 18.

She'll try to compare them to Carrie and myself but we knew each other waaaay longer (which is sad)

Oh well. This crap will probably go on all night.
