I am a very lucky man – I’ve got an amazing wife and am the father to three wonderful kids. Lylli was born on Halloween in 2008, Gracie was born November 2010 and although she only lived for 17 months, she will remain as much a part of this family as the rest of us, and Mickey Gray, our first son, was born in June of 2012. I’m not going to say that life has gone exactly as I would have wanted, but it is a good life and I am determined to make the best of it.

This blog is an attempt to document my quest to become a dad that my family can be proud of.

Let me summarize my Life

I bought a new powerful amplified antenna for the TV since we cancelled
our dish network because of issues with the receiver -- a minute after
setting it up, I was moving around the rabbit ears and snapped one off
-- Thanksgiving week, I paid to get a faster internet service and they
changed something that appears to have slowed down my service (not quite
worth the extra $10 a month for slower service). Last week we got to
pay a plumber to fix our kitchen sink drain that was leaking all over
the inside of my custom kitchen cabinets - My wife also vacuumed up a
sharpee which in turn broke our expensive vacuum -- yesterday, my wife's
car got a flat while we were in Burnsville in the middle of a pretty
hefty snowfall -- this confirms that we need to replace her tires before
the real winter comes. It's a good thing we waited until the day after
the sale to do it. After fighting with the people at LA Fitness today
to opt out of my "No Commitment" membership -- I am lucky enough to get
to pay for three months for a membership that I used 3 times. This goes
wonderfully with my ATT cell bill which has somehow been $170 for months
without me realizing it. And to top off the day (well as of now that
is), I just got a call saying that the washing machine is broke and
leaking water everywhere. That will work out wonderfully since my dogs
have decided that the poop is in season and no less than 3 times a day,
I find one of them has rubbed poo-flavored slobber on my pants leg --
not too mention, my pitbull decided to take a whiz on my laptop backpack
which contained my Wii.
