About Me

My Photo
I am a Dad to two beautiful girls and a husband to a very gorgeous wife. I am very proud of my family and the way they give me so much support. I guess I do not need to win the lottery, I have already won.

Well this is the last day of our first full week back to work. This actually means that the holidays are over and the next holiday I believe is Memorial day. It is a long ways away but we have something to look forward too. I guess when you have been at a job as long as I have (24 years) it is just another week.

I think the thing I look forward to the most is the planning for future vacations. I get 4 weeks vacation a year and I will guarantee you this that I use everyone of those day. We have to or we use them so I make sure they get used.

The one vacation I put in for is a family vacation this summer. The whole family will be together so we are taking advantage of it. My girls are getting older and seem to be going there different ways. This summer might be our last summer that we are all together. So with that said we are going to spend it together and I look forward to it.

So far this first full week has been productive but slow in a way too. I did get back into the swing of being back at the gym since it was closed over the Christmas holiday. I am hoping the rest of year does get more productive but not too crazy as it seems it does. Well let me get going so I can finish this week right and head to work.

   I think we all have traditions that we do on Christmas. One of ours is going to the movies. We do not do it on Christmas day but the days after. This year we went out and seen the movie "Night at the Museum." It was a good movie and I am glad we started this tradition. We always try to find a fun movie to see, nothing real serious but something we can laugh at.

   I remember going out one year and there really was not much to see so we watched the Chipmunk movie. I guess you can say we were desperate that day. It is always fun to start something and keep it going. I do not remember how long ago we started this but I am glad we did. We all have different movies that we would like to see but we all end up voting on the one that will make us laugh.

   Well I hope everyone had a good Christmas and you did not have to take much back. If you had family come in make sure you enjoy them and have a great weekend.

   This is one of those days when you look back and remember when your kids were small. You remember staying up late and doing those last minute touch ups to get things under the tree. Remember the hours you spent putting stuff together and then going back to read the directions when you got stuck.

   Time sure goes by fast because now they are 18 and 20 and you are not up late anymore.You just sit here drinking coffee waiting for them to get up so you an open presents. We did do our normal Christmas eve where we read the Christmas story and opened one present. My daughter came up with the idea this year that we open our stockings instead of a present. That was fun because there are a lot of small things in the stockings.

   One of the things I like about this time of year are the Christmas traditions. We had one when I was growing up and I continued it on to my family. On Christmas eve we enjoy Polish food like Kielbasa and Pirogi. We will cook the kielbasa different every year. This year my wife made it into a rice casserole. It was GREAT.

   I hope everyone who is reading this has a great Christmas and if you can let's say a prayer for our men and woman who serve in our armed forces. This is a tough time of year for them being away from your family this time of year. I know the feeling because I was gone over Christmas back in 1989 and it is a sad and very long day. So let us always remember these people in our prayers.

   Well I hope everyone has a great day today and let us remember the reason for the season.
