Happy Fathers Day

Today is fathers day and so far this has been a great one for me. I got to spend some time by myself which is something I don’t get very often. I spent most of my free time just sitting in my minivan thinking…

It’s been quite an interesting journey so far, being a father… I am blessed to have a great wife and two amazing kids. I am also thankful for my family, extended family, and friends who have helped support me/us in one way or another over the years.

I think that of ask the experiences in my life so far, being a father has changed me the most. By the time my kids are my age I imagine I will have changed so much that I could write a book about it, but who would want to read it?

One of the main changes that comes to mind is that I used to never hesitate to share my opinion, but now I tend to keep things to myself. For example, there are many things I’d like to say right now, but I am going to refrain from doing so for now. Why is that the case? Because i’m still growing and changing and in time I will be wiser than I am now which will probably change my opinion again and I will be left thinning of how silly I was to think and say such a foolish thing.

What am I blathering about?

Well, basically i’m trying to say that I hope my son and daughter learn quicker than I did to listen to their parents and not be so darn insistent on doing everything the hard way just because they can…

We all could stand to learn valuable lessons from our elders, if only we would just shut up and listen long enough to learn from their mistakes and benefit from their successes…

Major Changes Coming Soon

I'm Still Here

Just a quick post as I’m heading out for lunch…

I started this website in 2007 and I wanted you all to know that I really appreciate you for reading and commenting. It has been a long and fun journey and I’m looking forward to what may come in the future.

With that being said, my life has changed a lot over the past few years and especially since last fall (I’m sure you’ve noticed I haven’t posted in several months now). I think it is time for a change for this website as well.

A new look? A new purpose? I’m not 100% sure yet, but something needs to change. (I need a new motivation to get posting again, that’s for sure!) I am open to suggestions as well.

I need to go get some food, down to 28 minutes on my break.

The next post will probably come when everything has changed! How exciting, right?! 🙂
