Decorating The Tree For Christmas

While many of my friends like to hold out until December to decorate the Christmas tree, my view of the matter is slightly different. I really feel that the longer you leave your Christmas tree out the better. Sure, I don’t like to decorate the tree right after Halloween, but late November is all right …

Going Ice Fishing this Weekend

One of the things I love about winter is the opportunity to go ice fishing. Sitting in a ice shack for the better part of the day is very relaxing for me. I’m still young, so the cold doesn’t bother me that much. Realistically, as long as you dress properly the cold shouldn’t bother you …

My Car is in the Shop

One of the dreaded things for every car owner would be when it breaks down.  I know that I am sure that I roll my eyes every time that there is a problem with it. It usually ends up costing a lot. I don’t know what happened this time, but I was driving down the …

What a Good Weekend

There are some weekends where you get nothing accomplished and others where everything goes better than you would have thought. This past weekend was one of those. In fact, the weather was so good that I was able to get the rest of the recycling taken care of, cleaned out a room in the basement …

Going on a Hot Date Tonight

Date night – my favorite night of the week.  The one day where we get out of the house and set aside time for each other.  It is something that we have been doing for years now, and I don’t think that I will ever get bored of it. I love spending time with Melissa. …

For me, there is nothing more frustrating than going back to work on a Monday.  The weekends are just too short, and it never seems like there is enough time to get everything done. Do you ever have enough time? I bet the answer is no. But at least the weekend was productive.  We were …

Taking Time to Remember

Today is the one day of the year that we get to step back from our lives and remember the sacrifices that so many made to let us have the freedoms and quality of life that we enjoy.  I know that I had some of my great-grandparents and grandparents serve in the great wars, and …

Last Campfire of the Season

Last night was great.  I had some buddies over for supper and we had a wiener roast.  Since winter is approaching, we decided to try and fit one more campfire into this year as once the snow hits the ground, we won’t be able to have any more. We had a blast. It is hard …

Taking the Time to Study Tonight

I have to admit – sometimes I am not serious about my education.  This is the time of my life where I should be having fun and being a kid – not having a love-affair with my text books.  But the truth of the matter is that things are not going so well for me …
