My Resolutions

Here it is;

  1. Weight.  I weight 260.4 pounds today.  It’s 5 pounds shy of the heaviest I’ve ever been.  I have high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other bad stuff that comes with being overweight.  I have a foot injury that I think will only go away as I lose weight.  I resolve to get below 200 pounds by next year.
  2. Texting and Driving – I do it alot.  I’ve had some close calls this year. It needs to stop.  It’s against the law now.
  3. Pescetarian – I’ve had a problem for nearly 2 years now that I eat food that I don’t have the heart to kill.  I’d never be able to murder a cow, chicken or pig so why can I eat it?  Yes, it’s delicious.  It is.  It doesn’t make it right.  I’ve fished in the past and I could kill a fish.  I have.  I resolve to not eat meat for 2014.
  4. Drinking – As part of the weight program, I figure it would be easy to just eliminate drinking in 2014.  It will help with the budget and the weight, so why not.
  5. Run a half marathon.  As soon as I can begin training, I will.  The weight has to go down before I can consider it.  The foot really hurts.
  6. Positivity – It’s important to keep my posts online positive.  I can’t attack groups of people.  If I want to make a point, do it with humor.
  7. Finish Frat Boy – I’d like to finish writing this so I can produce it at the end of the year.
  8. Be in a position to be completely self employed – Sick Puppies needs to generate enough income for me to choose whether or not remain employed. I really enjoy my job so it’s hard to get motivated to this, but I believe it’s the right thing to do.

We don’t celebrate our friends enough.  We spend time with them, we enjoy their company, but we rarely take a moment to understand how our lives have been affected by them.  This is a series of or collection of blog posts that I’ll make one at a time until I’ve got all of you.  Don’t feel left out.  The timeline is large enough that I’ll get you.  There is no rhyme or reason to who I choose.  Except for this one.  My best Friend. My Dad.  Let’s get started.

Who is He? He’s my old man.

How do you know him? simple enough.

How do you spend time together? Usually with a glass of wine, beer or mind altering beverage, the two of us likely gambling or conquering world problems.  Lot’s of laughter usually due to the awful things we are saying when together.  Telling stories almost too big to be true.

What have you learned from him? Generosity.  Short Answer.  He teaches me how to give it all away even when it seems I have nothing to offer.  He’s taught me the value of time.  Minutes matter.  Moments are all we have.  He’s taught me how to be the perfect father.  I am an honest person because of him.  He’s taught me how to be a good person and doesn’t judge me.

Have you picked up any of his bad habits? Most. Never became a smoker.  I eat too much and tend to have a temper.

How has he changed you? He’s my father so it’s a tricky question.  My father molded me.  As an adult, there was one moment when life was getting tricky and he said “don’t take the easy road”.  That was enough.  At that time.

Describe him in a sentence Everyone thinks they are his favorite… and they are.

I love you Dad.

 

Having a Good Day

Just for the sake of having some content on my site, I thought I’d let everyone know I’m having a good day.  Learned the gender of my kid today.  Will be releasing that information tomorrow.

The Puppies are on their way to a sold out show again and that makes me very happy.

Life is good.
