Hello everyone, today I had a contractor start on an estimate for reroofing the house that I am buying. I hope that it’s not too much. Tomorrow the utilities get turned on in my name for the inspection that will happen either tomorrow or Wednesday. Wish me luck. I haven’t had much time to play much because when I’m not doing school or going crazy over the new house I’m helping my friends fix up their house. They are letting our family stay in their basement until the purchase is done so we really owe them a lot. More than we can repay due to the love that they have shown us over the years. Good friends are great to have. My buddy shayne has been helping us out with moving stuff into storage and also hooking our other friends up with home improvements as well. We’re blessed to have so many friends.
My online gaming life has been put on somewhat of a hold. School has been taking up a lot of time as well as working full time again. (I was on medical leave) The kids love to take all my time too. I’m not complaining as this time will go very fast. Soon my kids won’t want to have me around so I’m enjoying this. I have to get back on my diet when we move into the house. The good news is that I’ll get to ride my bike a lot more because I’ll have a place to keep it. There is so much work to be done in the new house but I can take comfort in knowing that it will be mine. When it’s done the house will be worth a lot more. And when the economy picks up the value will as well.
This is my house. It doesn’t look like much but its great inside. The yard is fenced and large enough for the kids to play in and inside there is 2k sq ft of fun (and hard work) to do.

My wife and I decided that the only way to really fix this was to cut off all her hair. Although very traumatic for a girl it was our only choice. We striped her and started to cut off her hair. I thought to myself as I cut “my daughter is going to look like Britney spears” She had her bath when it was all over and of course we have pictures, but now she looks so sweet in her head scarf.
My little boy, so as to lessen the pain that his sister was going through wanted to cut his hair too. He was fine with it until I actually started cutting but by then it was too late. So now I have two little bald children. My son wanted me to cut my hair as well and I thought about it. In the end I kept my hair as did my wife and my daughter, hopefully, has learned her lesson.

Sorry I haven’t written. I’ve been very tired. So tired in fact that I had trouble sleeping (go figure) I was up for the better part of the night so when 6am came I had to call in. it was that or fall asleep on the phone. Feeling like crud I actually managed to get some sleep (until 10). Well today is a great day despite feeling like crud. It’s great because I weigh 310lbs. I don’t know if losing all this weight all of a sudden is making me feel like this or if it’s something else. Well I’ve been eating the meals regularly and I’m not really starving so that’s good. I’m not going to go over what I eat each day any more as I don’t think that it’s important. We know that there powered food and prepackaged and not all that tasty so let’s just leave it at that.
Life has been going slow so I’ve tried a new game or two. One is borderlands. It’s not too bad as first person shooters go. It’s really a shooter/role playing game kind of. It’s slow and not too hard. The other is dragon age origins. I thought that this game was going to be great, however as I play I noticed that the different choices that you get in the dialog all lead to the same place regardless. This doesn’t make sense because if you tell someone that there crazy there going to react differently than if you tell them you love them. Don’t get me wrong, the graphics are wonderful and the idea of the game is great but it would be nice if it was a little more free flowing. I feel as if I’m just following the script and I’m not really part of the game. Sadly most role playing games are like this. Well good night everyone I’ll be going to bed soon.

Hello everyone, it’s me. Of course it’s me, it’s my blog. Today has been a great day. We woke up at 9 and got ready to go to Ikea, (just some oak and some pine and a handful of Norsemen). And by 10:30 we were off. Yes it took us an hour and a half to get ready; the joys of children. Actually I had to get a box ready to send to my sister.
Ok let’s get the food stuff out of the way. Today I weighed 314 and had eggs at 9 a lemon bar at 12, chicken soup at 3, tuna salad (green) at 6, and will have pudding at 8 and a shake at 10. Ok so that’s done.
At Ikea we purchased a set of bunk beds. This was about 11:30 and my wife hadn’t eaten yet so she was rather grumpy. I’m always grumpy now (you eat only powered food for a week and not be grumpy) so we got into a little spif at the car putting the big box in. Well after that I took my heart into the store to get her some food so she would stop biting my head off. Were home now taking some time to eat dinner and then its off to finish putting together the bunk beds.
