I just wanted to post quickly to thank everybody who came to Sylvia's b-day party this weekend and made it a huge success. Syl says it was probably one of the best parties she'd ever been to. I'd have to agree with her. So thanks, friends, for being there for her andspending it with her. I especially want to thank F,K, and Jow, for helping with all the prep on the day of the party.
Keep in mind, Thursday is Sylvia's actual birthdate, so feel free to swarm her phone with calls to wish her well.
Figured I'd share my first Burn experience with you.
Had a good weekend Saturday, we got a few groceries and shorts and shirts for the boy. Got the wife and I new bathing suits. My wife's friend from Atlanta was down staying at a hotel nearby, so we went to the club with him. Tried to avoid as much drama as we possibly could, all in all had an OK time.
Sunday, we went to Wal-Mart and got new stuff for our bathroom, and cleaned. Ate breakfast at Bob Evans. We didn't do much else. Felt good to veg out and play GalCivII for the evening.
Honestly, do I come off as a know it all?

Today was my day off. I got to go to the CVS, by foot, because my wife's car died on the way to get Juice, Deodorant, and coke. It decided that it didn't need powersteering and that it would rub the serpentine belt til it came off.
I'm also stressing because the jackasses at work still have not told us what days off I'll have next week, so I don't know if I'll be off just Saturday or Saturday AND Sunday.
I am stressing about the party in general. I'm not sure I even want one, although, I really would like to have one. I don't want to have any drama, and so, naturally, there's drama. And, yes R, I know it's supposed to be about me, but that's selfish, and I am like Xelana, I try to please everyone, even if it's at the expense of my own pleasure. I know that's stupid, but that's how I am. I am rarely up front about how I feel with anybody, and that's causing me as much heartache as it has saved me from.
Fuck the fucking fuckers.
This year we're starting out with a bang, hopefully it will carry over. I've inquired about some college courses with University of Phoenix. My wife has gotten an interview for a job, and it went really well. We're waiting to hear the final word back from the drug test is all now.
My two this New Year resolutions were to get myself in better shape, physically, and to have no less than 5grand saved up.
Saving that much money will be the harder of the two obviously, but hopefully it will not prove too difficult. Hopefully by the end of 2009, I'll be a home owner. Hopefully by 2011, I'll have a bachelor's degree.
In the short term, my goals are to have a good, stress free birthday party on the 20th (it's a Saturday). The only gifts I asked for are both food, Death by Chocolate, and Seafood Chowder that my mother in law makes.
After my birthday, I'm going to the doctor to see if there's anything I can do about some of my anxiety issues. I'm not getting attacks like I did a few years ago, but I still would like to feel comfortable around my friends and not worry about saying the wrong thing and being more confident around them. To be more like I feel when I'm at work. I love my job. I'm very good at it, and it makes me feel good to be one of the best at something.
I'm determined to keep these goals and determined not to procrastinate about them.
Welp, at last, Christmas and most of it's stress is over. I don't have to worry about Conner liking what we've gotten him, because he did love everything that everyone got him. As we expected, he's been hard to pry from his big present (Nintendo Wii) I have to admit though, I've been hard to pry away from it too. Fjord, Conner and I got playing Marvel Ultimate Alliance yesterday, and I was hooked.
Thanks to everyone who came to my party on Dec 20th. Syl and I loved seeing everyone, no matter how short the visits were. It went pretty much without incident. Although, we did miss Rachel, we did get to see her Christmas Day though and that was nice.
New Years Day I'm probably working, and so I'm not sure if I'll go out or not New Years Eve.
I actually slept through the night last night. First time in like 3 weeks I slept through the night til the sun came up at least.
