Tuesday, More Like Friday #1

Hey Everyone!

Today is July 3rd, and that means tomorrow is the 4th! It is America’s Independence Day. This is one of my favorite holidays. It may not seem like a lot, but when you do everything we do it really is a nice time in nice weather and what better can you ask for?

This time tomorrow we will have just finished watching the parade that spans over 2 miles through my town. We will be headed over to my parent’s house along with about 20 others, for a nice cookout, some Frisbee, and Cornhole! Later that evening we will be heading over to my brother’s house to watch some fireworks on the pond. It is the best way to watch. When you are floating on the water you get to see the fireworks and their reflection, it really is awesome!

Last night we were determined to catch Everett walking on video and we, kinda did haha. Check it out!

It is quick but it counts! 😀 😀 We wanted to catch it early so that we can look back on it and see where he started. He clearly isn’t the best haha, but he is getting better everyday! He will be running around in no time, then we are really in trouble.

I won’t have a post out tomorrow, but I will be back again Thursday! I hope to see you then. Have a happy and safe 4th! 😀 😀

Where Have I Been! (For Shame)

Hey Everyone!

You may have thought that I fell off the flat parts of the Earth. Even though it seems that way it isn’t the case, I promise!I had every intention to post Thursday and Friday.

Let me explain. As you may know my baby had an ear infection, and my wife and I had head colds. He was already started on his antibiotic and starting to feel better. I was still feeling a bit under the weather. I woke up Thursday feeling worse. I came into work anyway because I didn’t want to take time off and not really have a medical reason. I quickly realized that I couldn’t think full thoughts and even walk in a straight line, without having a shooting pain in my head stopping me in my tracks. I spent the next hour trying to contact my family doctor only to have their line be busy over and over and over again…. Their phone system must have been messed up. I finally made the decision to leave and go to the walk in clinic at the hospital. Of course only to find out that they didn’t open for another hour…. I was clearly not in the right state of mind. When I arrived, at the correct time, I was seen and told that I had a bad sinus infection. At this point it was hurting in my ears and still shooting pains in my head. They sent me a script for some big horse pills. I took the next day, Friday, off as well because I was feeling worse than the day before. I really couldn’t even move the slightest bit without the worst pain I have felt in a long while. By the end of that day I did start feeling better, I wasn’t sure how much better, but it was significant.

I went to bed hoping that I would feel more ‘like normal’ in the morning. That was indeed the case. I woke up still congested but I was able to walk and bend down with out the pain. I was indeed clearing up. Just in time too! My dad and I were signed up for the company men’s outing that day. It started at 8am, but we didn’t go until noon. We were signed up for the horseshoe tourney and the cornhole tourney. I decided that this would be a good test of how I felt and maybe get some fresh air. We stayed and have lunch, dinner and some giveaways. The event was held at the local Amvets gun club. The weather was unbeatable, and the food and company was better. All around it was a great day. Here are just a couple pictures I grabbed.

Sunday, since I felt like a loser for not pulling my weight, we spent most of the day cleaning and tidying up. Early on we got groceries, which was nice because no one was there at 8:30 am lol.  We later went for a walk around the neighborhood. I tried watching the Dallas game, but they had a lightning delay in Denver and then proceeded to get their asses kicked 😦 It was rough.

Today I am BACK! Back at work, back at blogging, and back to normal.  I have some catching up to do here in the office, so my post will be early. Sorry for going dark, but I’m back at it now!

I’ll see you all tomorrow! 😀 😀
