Better already

I took care of some of my list of "things that would make me feel better", and they did. I'm a huge believer in realizing you can't change people's actions, only your reaction to it. I guess I just need to practice that more often, or somehow shorten the...

Fire Water Burn.

For the first time in a long time, I'm mopey today. Not sad, necessarily. Not depressed. Just kind of "blah" and "mopey", and a little frustrated, I guess. I only halfway know what's wrong, and I'm even more pissed off at myself for not being able to talk...

So last night

So, last night Angie and I met Chris and Katie at the boat so he could show me how to gamble properly before my trip to Vegas. After not being able to get a seat at the $5 Blackjack table, we made our way to Roulette. Let me preface this story by saying I...

Dodged a bullet

Well, my dad broke the news to me the other day that they were seriously looking at moving into a new house. It bothered me more than it probably should have. I finally came to terms with it and was happy that they were moving into a nicer place. Then they...

Transfer to message center

Man, I'm going to miss summer. Not the heat necessarily, but the season. This has been a great season. Okay, so the weekend. It wasn't really as eventful as it should have been this close to the end of summer. On Friday I finished work on Angie's corner...

The wacky tripod game.

It had been just over 6 weeks since I have taken a day off work for anything. I decided that was long enough. I took the afternoon off yesterday to go get some wood and build a little corner unit thing for Angie's kitchen. [I made some pretty good...

Is it just

Is it just me, or are weekends getting shorter? I'm sure the feeling has something to do with sunset coming a bit sooner than it has for a while, and its a tad darker when I wake up in the morning. Summer is on its way out, which really disappoints me....

Reached a new low

I weighed in this morning, and it was a monumental event. 181. That's right everyone, I'm down nearly 50 pounds, but since last time I dieted I was down 68, 50 doesn't seem like a huge deal. But the important part is that even though I lost a bunch of...

Just a good 'ole boy

So, Dukes of Hazzard was pretty much the dumbest, awesomest, most entertaining movie I've seen in a long, long time. I loved it. Anyway, on Friday Angie, Mullens, Anna, and I went to see the movie, followed by some drinks at Jimmy's and down town. I...

Slacking on my blogging

First off, let me just say how much [this sucks][1]. With that out of the way, let's play a bit of catch-up on my exciting life, shall we? Okay, so I went back to Chicago this weekend. It was a city I called home for just over 2 years, and although I was...

Peoria Cops on a Rampage

Yep, I got pulled over again. 3 times in 2 weeks for those counting. I got a verbal warning this time. I guess the good thing about all this pulling over is that none of it has cost me any money so far. This time it was for speeding... 52 in a 45. The cop...
