What happens after the kids go to bed.....

I know what all of your are thinking...  And I wish it was true..  but the truth of the matter is.  Once the kids go to bed at 8:30 we start the list.  Yes the list that consists of all the chores around the house that are impossible to do with kids under your feet.

Last night...  Hang pictures
Tonight... Change kitty litter and burnt out light bulbs, start laundry... you get the point.

Once we get our projects done, Jen and I try to spend some time together by watching TV or a Movie ect.  When I say Jen and I... I really mean, me.  Once the show starts you only have to wait 5-10 minutes and Jen is OUT COLD!  Trying to get her to wake up afterwords is like getting Sarah Palin to say something intelligent.  

Tonight for example, I love Ghost Hunters and Man Vs Food.  They are both on TV Wednesday nights.  Those are our Wednesday night shows.  We site down to watch and 8 minutes later...  Jen is sawing logs.  Man Vs Food was a rerun, but we both wanted to watch how they make a sandwich that has Fried Chicken, Onion Rings, Mozzarella Sticks, Potato Wedges, Hamburger Patties, and to top it off..  Mac and Cheese!  (I will post pics when we make it)  I woke Jen up to help me remember the ingredients so we can make it some day.  She said she was awake.  They constructed the work of deliciousness and I turned to Jen who was asleep again.  Like any good husband..  I woke her up and said "Hey!  What was on the sandwich?"  She looked at me and said, "Mac and Cheese" then feel back asleep..  It was pretty funny.

Needless to say, Jen turns into a zombie after 9pm.  She will look you in the eye and promise she will stay awake and in the same breath fall asleep.  I have seen her do it.

Hello 2010!

After reading my friend e's blog today.  She called me a LAME-O!  I realized I do need to blog more often. It's the start of a new year and I'm going to blog my little heart out. 

I have several goals for this year.  I always talk big, but this year I am going to live big.  I guess it shouldn't be to hard..  I am a pretty big guy.

Goals for 2010
1. Write and preform a stand-up comedy act.
2. Lose 60 pounds (I hope before my 10 year high school reunion)
3. Take a picture everyday.
4. Blog at least twice a week.
5. Be a better Dad and Husband.

I am going to work hard on doing these things, and I plan on reporting to everyone in my blog posts on how I am doing. 

When I was in school, we were given a project to do a week long photo journal.  I kept it here on my blog.  I am going to do a photo journal one week out of every month.  I love photography and feel like I am good at it.. but I have not been able to do much after college.  No more excuses!  Be looking for that first post starting next week.
