I said *&*@#$^%@#$%

Ready for things to get back to normal before I hurt someone. When I finally snap it could be a helpless stranger that gets it. I feel like all the good has been sucked out of me since Brandi has been M.I.A., all that's left is the guy I was before she picked up the broken pieces and mended me.
I'm tired of being angry, I want my good half back!!!!

I like Kick Buttowski

I am just beginning to recover from last weekend. I want to make it clear, I will do whatever it takes to make life easy when Brandi is not here. I WILL order 3 pizzas and feed the left overs to the bubs for breakfast. I will buy more happy meals than we need (and feed the extras to the bubs at a later time to avoid another trip out). I will wake the bubs up at 5am and put them on the living room floor to watch Kick Buttowski in an effort to make sure they are tired and go to bed early. I have to take care of ME. You wouldn't want me to get run down and catch the "Man Flu," now would you? I hope everyone had a good laugh at my expense.... Seriously, though, thanks for all your prayers and thoughts last weekend.

P.S. If Mommies panties weren't in a wad, the bubs wouldn't be asking her if they need steam pressing!!!

For the love!!!


I hope that you feel good today if even for a few minutes. The look in your eye last night when you said you were just angry for no reason, and I unwittingly asked why said it all. Everyone is trying to be good. We are all working really hard. Just remember that we are BOYS, and sometimes we just act stupid. Also, remember how much we love you even when we are loud and make funny noises with our arm pits.

I love you more,

To My Valentine

I knew the first time I saw you that you were special. I thought there would never be a more beautiful creature on earth. As usual, I was wrong. You have grown more lovely each year. After our fist date, I knew I had to spend forever with you. Life hasn't always been easy for us, but we have always faced it together. We've weathered every storm, had our faith tested, and you have always been a supportive partner. Today you are more than I could have ever dreamed of. You are my best friend, and my love for you is greater today than ever before.

forever yours,

Dear Brandi....


I know you have been feeling terrible and I am sorry. However, your children are driving me crazy. I think they are waiting until I sit down to ask for something. Yep, that's what they are doing, it's a conspiracy. I get something for Bubba and as soon as my rear end hits the seat Lil' Bub wants something. I am barely able to keep the house clean, and I fed Baby Bub iced animal crackers for lunch today because I had to choose between making 3 different lunches or doing dishes and folding laundry. I can't get them to be quiet for more than 3 or 4 seconds and I'm afraid you are going to hurt me if they disturb you again. Remember that I love you very much, and if you do come out of the bedroom with the intention of hurting anyone, keep in mind that I am the one with the job.

German Shepherd Puppies

Well, I've finally convinced my wife to let me breed Heidi. I am super excited. Thanks to my new job, I now have a schedule that will allow me to take care of everything and Brandi won't have to do any work. Brandi has put up quite a fight but my patience is finally paying off. I am also excited about getting Heidi certified as a therapy dog. I will be able to attend classes with her to obtain a Canine Good Citizen certificate. After we have that, I can certify her in therapy and then she can go anywhere with me. The only problem I have now is deciding who will get puppies and who won't. Everywhere I go with her, people ask if I'm going to breed her and if they can have a puppy.

She Woke Up Lonely

Funny how two people see things so differently. I am not a snuggler, and I like my space in the bed. However, if you read my wife's blog you might think different. The truth is the morning before I was "all up in her grill", just after waking up she came over and gave me a big hug even before she had spoken. Those of you who know Brandi IRL know that's NOT like Brandi at all, she's not big on hugs and kisses anytime, but especially first thing in the morning. I asked her why she was hugging me, expecting her to reply that she wanted me to go across town and get her some kind of special bagel or crazy breakfast as pregnant women often do. Instead, she said "I woke up lonely". Therefore, when we laid down for bed that evening I made a point to try and lye close enough to her that she wouldn't feel lonely. You all see what that got me, I just can't win.
