Thanksgiving, Zane, Turkey Soda, Big Spider, G-mo= Good Times For All

hey guys...sorry for the way past due post....Thanksgiving was a much needed break from work....I only went to my parents (about 35 minutes away) almost all weekend but i stayed as long as i could.....The best part by far was getting to hang out with my new nephew Zane all weekend...he really is the cutest, coolest baby....and he really takes after me as well so i know we will be good buddies when he gets older....take a look at how he makes fun of me already....

Once again, sister Kara did not get to see Zane so she has to wait till Christmas...but she has seem him before so i dont' feel too bad..

Now another interesting thing was added to this years was the tasting of the Jones Soda Holiday pack...with my cousins husband...brave man...

Thats right...Corn on the Cob Soda, Broccoli Casserole Soda, Smoked Salmon Pate Soda, Turkey and Gravy Soda, and Pecan Pie Soda......Now, Jones Soda is the maker of many unique and delicious flavored drinks...check out the site....but they decided to make this holiday a complete Thanksgiving dinner in Soda never sounded good..but it was fun to talk about and quite the experience.....I tasted all five Sodas.....all of them were really unbelievably bad....My mom took pictures of me tasting them...but i dont' have those pics comes with a serving spoon cause that's all that you will be able to drink....if you smell the Salmon Soda, you will get sick......anyway...I do honestly recommend you give Jones normal flavors a try...their strawberry limeade and green apple sodas are really popular...

Guillermo also came home this Thanksgiving....we hung out some...and drove his's ridiculously fast....will beat you gauranteed....we saw the movie Just's really funny...stupid funny...but funny still......

we also put started the Christmas decorating...put the lights on the house and the big wire tree outside......but we will definatley have a big REAL tree in the house soon enough......

i leave you with this years "Spider in the Corner of the House"

i suck at this title stuff

sorry..maybe harpooning your mothers was a bit harsh...but i could have thought of worse started out good and quickly went to the dumps with the failure of technology..i also had my share of clumbsy mistakes which i really thing i hate worse than others stupid mistakes is my own...i would have punched myself in the face if it wouldn't hurt so bad.....anyway..i'm just looking forward to my annual camping trip..hopefully i can get off work the whole day on friday the 18th...even a weekend trip would be great. i also get to see the MLS championship match on sunday with 7 others...that will be great fun......then soon enough it will be thanksgiving and then christmas and then my birthday....all that with the addition of cooler weather....that's why late fall and early winter is my favorite time of much fun packed into a short amount of time....maybe with all the good things i'll forget about the crap at work...anyway i gotta head's a killin me.

oh yeah, how do you like my new blog title bar...i used real brown ya'll have any suggestions for me...(i've already thought of me swimming in brown sugar)....if your lucky, i can make you a kick booty blog bar

i need some change

well....things are the same at work. some okay days and some days that make me want to harpoon your mother. Those days I stay away from people whenever possible so i won't harpoon them...I know, that sounds bad, but i don't think it will ever happen...i like your mom...

anyway, i'm really needing some change right now...of course living in a wilderness area and having a girlfriend and leaving the country for a couple months would be a great way to change things up, i'm talking about smaller changes....i don't feel older or more mature than i did when i started college. sure, i have a job, an apartment, and a degree, but i don't feel any wiser or experienced in life. i have no discipline in tidyness despite all the chores i grew up having to do. I know how to clean, but i just don't care...i have horrible eating habits (either nothing or fast food for breakfast and lunch)..sometimes i get a decent dinner via TND and Grace Cafe, and occasionally eating out other than fast food...i have reallized food and/or lack thereof directly affects my mood and health..of course health. I am in the worst shape of my life..although i'm still like a cheetah in short sprints (older possibly injured cheetah), I lose my energy in about 5 when i played basketball the other night and started seeing grey spots and vision was going within 5 minutes of's ridiculous..

anyway, i need to make some changes...i know marriage must force maturity to rise a couple levels so i have a disadvantage there, but i can make some better choices in my personal habits. I really need to make breakfast..either eat cereal or actually turn on the stove and make an egg and some bacon or something....I even bought coffee today...i need to make lunch and dinner more often...but it is very difficult to cook for one person...i don't like leftover too much..i need a few days in between eating the same thing twice.

I need to get back into shape. I don't wanna pass out playing ball with guys twice my size running circles around's bad..real bad...running is boring, and so it lifting i need to play sports or something....

I need to clean my dang drawers are empty and my floor is least the living room is clean sometimes..and the bathroom get cleaned for company.

I also need to increase my spiritual discipline....i hardly ever read the bible...and when i do, i'm always hurrying myself so i can do something else instead. i need to pray more....for more than just my needs and wants.

anyway, as you see, i need to change a lot..i want to be someone who is admired for their balance of maturity and humor....who is disciplined enough to make good decisions with food, money, and time....who gets stuff done...even outside of paid work.

i need seriously....i need joy...i need happiness...i like those things..but most the day i spend irritated and have said things i shalt not say(believe it or not)

so this has become almost a confession of my life...despite the great friends and family, and possessions, and gifts and experiences i have had, there is still more to gain for a more satifying life..

I'm not saying that I'm completely lost and hopeless, and that my life is going down the toilet...There are many things in my life that i'm lucky to have...There are things i love about me, and I have talents, and discipline of many things. I just want to be more than i am....i'm tired now...goodnight.
