Where Did the Time Go?

I cannot believe that it has been 7 weeks since my 2nd daughter has come into this world. So that means that I have 1 MORE week of leave. Now talk about sadness. That has been wonderful seeing every minute of the latest addition to our family growth ever so quickly.

I would give ANYTHING to be able to just stay at home. I know that at this point in our lives that it is not possible. It is unreal how fast 2 month can fly by. I know that I have to get my butt back to the cheese mine and sweat it off in 120+ degree temperatures.

I love my wife and daughters so much that I continue to back so my wife can stay home and raise them the way we want it to be done. I respect my wife for staying home and dealing with Miss lil cranky pants sometimes, because I know that they get one their nerves.

I know that I will cry my first day back to work and see my eldest daughter happy when I come back home at night. This is something that my wife does not get, because her work comes to her(babysitting).

New Geekling

It is official we are a family of 4 now. Now talk about scarey stuff. It happened on April 26th at 1235 AM. We had no idea what were having and he had a girl. She was 8 lbs 15 oz and 21 inches long. To me it is still amazing that she fit in my wife' for as long as we did.

Yet again we had to intervene to force were out with pitocin. Just like my first we had to terminate the stay in the nice and cozy uterus.My wife started at 8am on April 25...we sure do manke some stubborn children that is for sure..lol.

Having A Blog Identity Crisis

I think I am going to be taking a break from this space that I have called home right now for 4 years. :( This space is just not fitting to who I am am right now. I am not that sure if it is the name or what. I am a total geek, but yet I garden and hunt and other outdoors things.
How do you people do it that have kids and a wife and work 6 days a week.
 I am so conflicted.

So if any of you can relate.....give me a holler.

Not Even Cool

I saw this “story” on Wampa News the other day. I know it is FAKE, but the thought of it even being legit has kind of scarred me. Talk about a downfall of the Star Wars Franchise if Disney would even think about doing this.
 
BREAKING | STEPHENIE MEYER AND E.L. JAMES RE-WRITING EPISODE VII SCRIPT!!!
Sources inside Lucasfilm have informed us that Stephenie Meyer, author of the wildly popular “Twilight” series of novels, and E.L. James, author of the “50 Shades of Grey” trilogy, have been brought in to re-write the script for Star Wars Episode VII. The duo was reportedly brought in at the request of director Disney executives who felt that the script director JJ Abrams and "The Empire Strikes Back" writer Lawrence Kasdan had written was lacking when it came to the romance.
Our sources say that, upon reading Abrams and Kasdan's draft of the script, Disney execs wanted the love story, which was a sub-plot in the Abrams/Kasdan script, to be brought to the forefront to appeal to a broader audience. There are reportedly four romantic subplots in the Meyer/James script, compared to the just one in the Kasdan/Abrams script.
According to our source, the relationships are: Han and Leia's daughter Jaina (reportedly played by Taylor Swift) having a fling with an imperial officer (reportedly played by Justin Beiber), Han and Leia's marital difficulties caused by Jaina's fling, Luke's struggles learning to love again following the death of his wife Mara Jade (portrayed in flashbacks by Kristen Stewart), and Luke's son (reportedly played by Zac Efron) and his struggles with coming out of the closet to his father about his relationship with another Jedi (reportedly played by Michael Cera).
Fans can expect lots of drama and lots of heat as the love stories play out over the film and set the stage for the relationships in Episode VIII, which will introduce new players into the relationships and cause love triangles for characters you might not expect (think Han and Leia).
Star Wars Episode VII hits theaters December 18, 2015 and stars Mark Hamil, Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Zac Efron, Justin Beiber, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Swift, and Michael Cera.
What are your thoughts??

Dad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan

Dad Is FatDad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars


This book is hilarious. I think that I am going to get this book for every soon to be parent from on. I know I can be evil sometimes...teehee.
 To me this was one of those book that were unputtdownable.This was a great book for my wife and I to read before we add another one to our crazy lives.

Basically, this is book of “bits” about Jim’s experiences becoming and being a father.Jim and his wife currently have five children and they live in a two-bedroom apartment in NYC. Yes, you do the math. The “bit” about how they have to put the kids to bed each night is like one of those logic problems from the SAT (Dan has to sit next to Jane and Sue, but he can’t sit next to Carl or . . . you get the idea).
Gaffigan manages to mix the right amount of snark and heart into these stories and most of them made me laugh out loud (yes, in the bathroom) at least once. Some of my favorites include the discussion of how naps are “pay day loans” or why parents give in to McDonalds. The chapter, “Are You Done Yet?” where he discusses the growing dismay of his friends and family as he and his wife exceed the normal couple allotment of two children is brilliant.
Though Gaffigan mines his home life for comic gold, some things are clear. He loves his wife, he loves his kids, and he loves his life—even though it is chaotic, sometimes impossible, and exhausting. This book made me wonder how much fun it would be to grow up in the Gaffigan household—I suspect that the next generation of standup comics is in the making.
