Happy New Year

It's been a busy last few weeks. Christmas, and all the gatherings that go with it, were great. It's been fun spending time with everyone.

We've been watching a neighbors dog while they're in San Diego. Dog sitting for this little yappy brat has further fortified my dislike for the creatures. As cute as they sometimes might be, they're not for me. Especially when they piss on my carpet.

Miller's Thriller's are the 2008 Baker Group Fantasy Football champions.

I'm sure there's a lot more to say, but it's late and I'm braindead.

Happy New Year to you all. I hope it's the best one yet.

Don't We All

It was 50 degrees F when I woke up yesterday. It was -3 degrees F when I woke up today.

Yesterday, I laid some carpet for a family that used to go to our church. My office job body is sore today. The best part about laying carpet is walking out of there when your done. The rest of it sucks. If anyone asks you if you know someone who lays carpet, please lie. I don't like to do it. I will do it for you, but no one else.

Alex is now working at Hy-Vee. She doesn't like it though. She told me "I have better things to do with my life".

Madeline had her school Christmas singing program on Monday, Abby has hers tomorrow. No, they don't call it a Christmas program. It's a "Winter Program". They did sing a song that mentioned God though, which is cool. We're not totally Obamanated yet.
It was 3 degrees, yes fahrenheit, this morning when I went to work. The winters are either getting colder (fuck you Al Gore) or I'm getting older.

The moon is near full tonight. With the snow on the ground, it is really bright out. I went out in the backyard and took a couple of photos. Doesn't feel too bad out if I dress right.

It's late and I'm tired. Talk to you soon.

It's a big word, I know, but it's how I feel. I thought I had a good handle on this parenting thing, until lately. All of a sudden I'm a dumbass and everything is my fault. I want to go camping for a while.

Here's a photo, from tonight, of the Moon, Venus, and Jupiter.

If I'm going to be a sunbeam for Jesus (I've been called), I need to lighten up. Remind me of that, please.
