Lazy Work Day!

Hey Everyone!

Today is Halloween! Here at work we had donuts and apple cider, in the morning. We also had a luncheon where people just brought a ton of stuff in. It was, of course, delicious andΒ  not good for you haha. A few people in the office dressed up, most did not, myself included. I suck haha. I am always behind the eight ball with gearing up for holiday outfits.

Tonight we are passing out candy to all the little ones. I went out in the cold last night and positioned my projector light where I wanted it. With the weather being bad and us being on a main road I didn’t want the weather to ruin it or have it get stolen. So I got it where I wanted it and then put it away until tonight haha. It’ll be a cold two hours sitting outside but it should be fun. My mom asked if we were coming over to their house at all, and I’m not really sure why. I told her we may come but I’m not to certain we have the time. Between us getting out of work and getting home by 4:30, my wife pumping and me setting the lights back up we would be cutting it close to have anytime over there at all.

Tomorrow is pay day and I’m glad it is haha. It is all spoken for of course but it will be a breath of fresh air. A weight will be lifted even if it is only for two days before I pay bills again lol. I have to work on saving hard again to get that plumbing issues resolved, fingers crossed. I don’t really have any plans until the weekend. We are going back to my wife’s hometown for our nephew’s first birthday party. We are going a day early to spend time with her grandparents.

That is all for my daily life post. I’ll see you again tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


Nice Night To Go To The Dam!

Hey Everyone!

I was planning on going home after work and just cutting the grass. Sounds pretty boring right? My wife called me just before I left and asked what I was doing after work. She suggested that we go for a walk at the Kinzua Dam. I told her that I wouldn’t pass up an opportunity to do something with our family for cutting the grass haha.

Once I picked him up from daycare and got home, we got him ready to go!


It is a little hard to get a picture of a baby that keeps moving, my apologizes haha.

We took off and made our way there. We went to a spot that wasn’t as much hiking, but rather a leisurely walk with some pre-made stairs and what not.


Once you get closer to an overlook you can see the reservoir beyond the trees.


Lastly you are greeted with this amazing view! This is a beautiful place anytime of the year. It is always worth a visit. We come here as often as we can, when we remember to actually do it lol.


Of course with any small day trip you need a few family photos. It was very bright, as you will see. It was clear and sunny.


We tried again back in the woods to get away from the direct sun light and we managed to get him to look and not cry haha. That is a win win if I’ve ever seen one.


I love my little family and taking trips like this. They are the most important things in my life and I would be lost without them. The trip was great and was a much better way to spend the evening. πŸ˜€

Tonight I have a Masonic 3rd degree. It will take most of the evening and be late. It is the longest degree and the last degree to become a Master Mason. It will be fun, we are hoping a few of the NY guys come down to see it done our way.

This weekend it our Alumni homecoming and we will be going back for the festivities and to see friends. I’ll keep you posted! I hope you have enjoyed today’s post and I’ll see you all tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

Learning & Housekeeping!

Hey Everyone!

Not much going on here today. At work today I was shadowing a co-worker on how to replace and send back our old data collection terminals. the scanning guns tend to break and the terminals are older than dirt. From what I have heard on the grape vine, they are finally fazing them out. That is good and bad. Good for the reason that they are old and suck. they are also bad because until they replace them I have to learn all about them, which can seem like a waste of time. Before this said co-worker retires I have to learn that, how to create some sort of cards, and die cards. I already know her day to day and how to run it, which is what I’ll be doing tomorrow. I also have to take over ordering the toner for the as400 printers. With any luck her whole position will be dissolved. I will be taking over parts of it and another will take over the rest. I doubt that it will come with any raise, but in due time my work will be recognized.

As for tomorrow I probably will not be posting. I will be into work early to cover her. That means I get to leave at like 2-2:30, that’s the good part. πŸ˜€ Sad news, is that I have to come in early and won’t really be able to push out a post. 😦

I was able to make a decent amount of zucchini bread last night. It was tasty if you are wondering. I cleaned up around the house quite a bit last night. I made myself a bit of a housekeeper. I hit up some laundry, made dinner, did the dishes, fed the pets, cleaned up a bit and helped with the baby. It was very productive, too bad it will all be for nothing in a day lol.

This weekend the wife and I are going to a craft festival at our fair grounds. It happens every year and seems to get great results. There are vendors that make their own goodies, and their own handmade crafts. Everything is for sale, and most everything is of solid quality. Generally it is early enough that the weather is not to warm and not too cool. I’ll be sure to take a few photos. πŸ˜€

That is about it for me today, and again I’ll be back Friday! Hope to see you then. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€
