Another year…

As 2016 starts, I’m reminded of my resolution for 2015; blog more. As anyone can see from just a quick glance at this blog, I failed at that resolution. I’m hoping that this year’s resolution will actually stick.

Along with the resolution to blog more, I’ve got the age-old resolution to lose weight. I need to lose 50 pounds to become “healthy”. Which brings me to the point of the old phrase “Happy and Healthy”. What a crock that is, right? I’ve been on and off dieting for years now trying to lose the weight that makes me un-healthy, and never once when I’ve come close to that goal can I say that I’ve been “happy”. Is “Happy and Healthy” even achievable? Sitting around the dinner table recently, I asked my family (all of the girls except one; different story) which version of me they preferred; thin and miserable, or fat and happy? Every single one of them answered “fat”.

Is it even possible to be “Happy and Healthy”?

I’m going to find out.

I’m also going to:

  1. blog more
  2. write more music
  3. finish more music
  4. do more with my family
  5. find a way to pay off every bill and still have what I want (this one’s a tough one)

So far, so good.

Holiday decorating, beer, and football

So it’s that time of year again; holiday decorating. The time of year when I carry all the Christmas stuff up from the garage storage room, including 2 six foot trees, so that all of the girls can decorate for the holidays. Then, I will end up outside in the freezing cold setting up the house lights.


I’m drinking a beer. A belgian strong that I brewed for thanksgiving. I’m just thankful there’s some left!!!
8.1% ABV!!
We’re also trying to catch our high school football team at the championship game. It’s not on local TV. It’s not on local radio (that we can receive anyway), so I hooked my computer up to the home entertainment center and connected to a website that is broadcasting (in AM radio quality). We’re winning before the half.

Manly moving.
Manly football (crappy quality, but still football)
Manly beer.

I’m good. 🙂
