HNT Bruised

Wish I could say that I was bruised because of some rough sex, but alas it was not that case.

I decided to play goal during last week's lacrosse game that I usually coach. I had a great time but caught a ball in the inner thigh. It did not hurt all that much when it happened and bruised quite a lot over the next week.

This is actually almost two weeks later. It was a lot worse a few days ago.

I know this is not the sexiest picture around but I wanted to share a little more of my life with you.

HAPPY HNT!

Happy Veteran's Day

To all the men and women who serve or have served in the military, I want to wish you a Happy Veteran's Day.

Thank you for all that you do and your service to our wonderful country. Without your service we would not have the freedoms that we have today.

HAPPY VETERAN'S DAY!

and



Happy Marine Corps Birthday, although I am a day late!

Oyster Roast

Well its that time of year again. Time to go to an oyster roast. The weather is turning cooler, and I say cooler while most of the people that live down here will say cold because I lived in the northern states as well as the western mountain states and seen much colder temperatures then 35 at night.

Dont get me wrong, 35 is pretty cold, but when I have been camping in -5 this will be a perfect evening in front of a fire eating oysters. Since we have lived here we have been somewhat adopted by this family that invites us to all of these occasions. Fourth of July, graduation parties, the family beach house, and now the oyster roast. The family is an amazing group of people and we are happy to be a part of their group.

So I hope that everyone is going to have a happy evening, because I know my evening is going to be a good one.

Maybe I will post some pictures tomorrow of my evening, no it will not be half naked shots, but most will probably be dressed for winter.

A little behind (HNT)

I am a little behind in my posting.
I promise to be better about it from here on out.
I already have many many posts that are in draft form that are ready to go so it will not take much to post them.

So here is my proclamation! I will post on a regular basis from here on out... and promise not to take an extended absence unless something comes up! Really nothing has come up lately. I am just a little behind.

So Happy HNT!

Have a great day.

Guilty

Lets see, around the house...

I cook, I clean, I do the dishes, I do the laundry, I make sure that my daughter makes it to her bus stop on time. I do the budget, I pay the bills, I have full control over our financial situation, even though I try to include her in it all the time. I take care of the dogs, I feed the fish. At least since it is fall I do not have a lot of yard work to do.

We both work full-time and of course she is bi-polar but the only thing that she has to do is the grocery shopping... which of course I did this weekend too.

She does do things, like decorate for holidays, and she is good with our daughter... but for the most part I pretty much do everything.

It was not always like that, we had an equal share, and I know a lot of it is her illness. So I put up with it.

Honestly I don't mind doing all of these things. I now have a routine that works and I do not feel at all overwhelmed, but sometimes...

Like this weekend, I took a break from my duties and played a video game... for most of the weekend. I still did a lot of the work around the house, but some things were left undone... and I briefly felt guilty about it... but I am happy that I did it.

I am now caught up with all the housework and back to my regular routine.

It was definitely a much needed break, especially for my sanity.

My latest excuses

Seems like I have been finding a lot of excuses not to post lately.

Been really tired.
Have not been motivated.
Busy at work.
Busy at home.
No access to blogger...

But really I do not have any excuse not to post.

I want to post, its not that. There really is not a lack of motivation.
Honestly I really can not tell you why. I just have not been posting. I have a lot to say. I have written several draft posts and maybe I should just post them.

I have some great ideas for upcoming posts. I have finished my Vermont story but still left it in draft.

So anyway, here is to the start of my next wave of posts. I will start it by posting a HNT shot.

Of course you will have to wait a few hours or maybe till tomorrow to see it. I have already taken the picture, but I am going to stagger my posts so that I can finish some of the other drafts and edit some of the posts.

Anyway... hope you all like the picture.
