I am SO ready for Spring

I want the snow gone. Spring is here on the calendar anyway so I want spring to be here in reality.
I want to take the girls for a walk and not bundle up or worry about climbing over snow banks.
I want to be able to pull the wagon on the sidewalks.
I want to play baseball!!
I want to wear shorts. (you can bet if it hits 12, I will be)
I want to dig my bike out and save some gas.
Most of all I want to be able to take the girls outside to play with out snow or cold.

Before any of that I have to put the eaves-trough back on the house. Stupid ice.

I got a new tattoo Friday.

It's an M and an R together. To symbolize Matt and Rebecca, together. and the forever part because it's a tattoo and it will be there forever.
It didn't hurt that much. At least not as much as I remember my other tattoos hurting even though it's on my finger and I thought it would hurt more.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone!
It was over all too fast here. It took Grace about 5 minutes to find the eggs and start mowin' down.
Busy day ahead of us. Lots of family to see and talk to.

Have a great day everyone!

Jeff had it all figured out

I got thinking about a high school friend Jeff. He's home from Afghanistan for a few weeks. Thanks Jeff!
Anyway, back in high school Jeff always wore the same thing. We all wore uniforms but whenever we weren't, Jeff wore a white t-shirt and black jeans. I don't remember seeing him wear anything else. Some people were jerks about it.
But I look back now and realize Jeff (knowingly or unknowingly) had it all figured out. He liked wearing that and be damned what other people thought!! Anyone who would criticize anyone else for their clothes isn't worth your time anyway.
Don't judge a book by it's cover right?
He was comfortable with who he was and didn't need to wear the trendy expensive clothes to try and make "the right people" like him. I think back about some of the people we hung out with and they were assholes. They were mean. Why should their opinion matter?
They are probably living meaningless lives by now.
Jeff is a hero. He fights to protect our country from those who would like to see our way of life destroyed.
He still wears the same thing all the time. A soldier's gear. And a whole lot of Pride.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

I get to celebrate by working my 7th shift in a row.
I better find something green to wear though.
Is it okay to have a beer on my lunch break?

I'm so proud!

My little girl Grace donated a good 10 inches of her gorgeous curls to Cuts for Cancer yesterday. Pretty amazing for a 4 year old. As much as I miss those curls, it's for a great cause and she looks super cute!
It will be much easier to handle at it's current length. We always have a hard time brushing it.
It's great.

We took a video of Grace on the radio on Friday talking about it and a whole whack of pictures of the whole things.
I'll post a link on here later.

i had a rant but...

I forgot.
It might have been something about idiots who only clean off their windshield enough that they can see out. not the passenger side, or the sides, or the back. Real safe, man.
Or those who do clean the windows off but leave a foot and a half on top which flies off as they drive in front of you causing a localized white-out. That's great too.
Or how I can't watch a Canucks game on Sportsnet Pacific because it's blacked out. But I'm in ONTARIO!!
I know it wasn't any of those things but I still can't remember. It will come to me tonight and work and I'll forget again by the time I get home.
