  • Tristan and I walked 2.32 miles this evening. It's good to spend time with her like this.

    • My hands and feet often feel cold while I'm at work. I always just assumed it was the ambient air temperature doing it.

      I hope things get better with Caitlin. That's a rough deal. I'm NOT looking forward to having a teenage girl. So, if you can make it through, tell me how it's done so I know what to do when my time comes!

        Mine are pretty much cold all the time. Today, they aren't too bad. I took 500mg of magnesium before bed and woke up feeling warm and numbness whatsoever. I took another 500mg's before I left the house and am a bit cold, but not too badly.

        Caitlyn (you misspelled but everyone does) is doing a little better. She did apologize to me which was a shock. The key to teenagers, at least from my experience is not to give them a lot of running room. The old saying, "you give an inch, they'll take a mile" is sooooo very true. Clint was even shocked by the apology. Tristan told me last night that she is learning from Caitlyn what not to do.

        • My youngest sister has told me several times that I was the example of how not to fuck up and my middle sister is the example of why not to fuck up.
          Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

            Tristan and Heather have both learned from Caitlyn the ins and outs on how to not screw up. We've always said Caitlyn was the trial and error kid and the other two were just easier than the last.

                • I didn't realize I haven't posted anything here for almost 2 weeks. Just been pretty damn busy. Works been kind of crazy. My doctor is at an event in Columbus so I am in the office by myself today. I don't have a lot to do today, so I am doing my nails right now.

                  This Sunday, my two youngest are being baptized by immersion at a pond near our church. Caitlyn wants to do this but she's very shy around people so she isn't.

                  Weather is going balls today. A storm similar to the one that damaged our house last June is supposed to come through tonight. Keep all of Ohio in your prayers. It can get nasty very, very quickly.

                  Diet has been fairly primal for the past couple of weeks. Our local pizza place has a gluten free crust that is even better than regular crusted pizza.

                  In other news, Clint told me Sunday that he wants me take up golf. The last time we attempted to play golf together was hell for me. I either hit the ball too hard or not hard enough. I eventually got so upset with him, that I walked to the car and said F you. I was actually thinking of getting the marriage annulled (at that point, we had only been married for 4 days). He did the same thing when we joined a bowling league and the same when he tried to teach me how to drive a stick. So when he said that he wants me to learn how to play golf, I told him its not a good idea. He looked deflated. I never explained further because I know he'll get upset then I'll get upset. Part of me would like to play golf, just not with him.

                    Could you go, ride around in the cart, get some sun and just hang out? A little bonding time without the pressure of the game?

                      I'm not so sure that's good enough for him. He really wants me to play. I agreed to play putt putt periodically but that's it. Part of my problem is when he tells me I'm not doing something properly is that I do internalize it to I'm not good at it, nor do I want to be good at so screw you. I'm not sure if that's called being stubborn or just giving up. I've done that all my life. Tell me I'm bad at something or say it in a way that pisses me off, I'm done.

                        Hmm...perhaps ask him why he wants you to play? Or just straight up tell him, "Thanks for the offer, but I do not find golf enjoyable. I would like to spend time with you though so how about I caddy?"

                        If he still says no then he is acting like a child and can get the f*ck over it.

                        He might just be looking for an outlet to spend more time with you. If you go along and have fun he should be good with that even if you are not playing.

                          I totally agree with this sentiment. I see him looking at the future and trying to figure things out that we can do as a couple. I'm almost wondering if we've become polar opposites on this front. I want to be by water and he wants nothing to do with water. We really don't do much together and I'm ok with that. I keep wondering if that's just my loner mentality coming out.

                            It certainly could be, and I understand the need for 'alone' time, but if you can make Stumpy happy without going crazy that is good too. Heck, you can work on getting some vit D while out at the course if nothing else

                              The Vit D part is the only thing that I could think of that would be good. I know if I'm not doing anything, I start obsessing on what I could be doing at the house and I then become upset and that's when I start thinking, I need to go, there are other things I need to do elsewhere. I wouldn't have fun doing that. I'd fall asleep or read a book.

                              • Sorry but I've got nothing for that I like spending time with my spouse and always hope that will always be the case. Is there anything you and Stumpy could do together that you would like?
