No Work Friday, etc.

Saturday, October 17th, 2009

I didn’t go to work Friday, Diana went to the Dentist (she was very brave).  Alayna and I and Eric went to Oma’s house while diana was getting worked on.  She was an expert bubble blower, check it out


We went out to eat at Ruby’s which was nice, went home , made cookies ,etc.

This morning diana is at school, and the kids and I are upstairs (hence the post).  They are drawing nice pictures.

Looking forward to Mondays darts.

October 15th Update

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Wow I suck.  Anyway I am still working for the bankrupt company but that is ending next week.  WHO NEEDS AN IT GUY.

Kids are great, Alayna is going to school 3 days a week, and little Eric loves his choo choos.

Wife is actually taking classes and working.  We are all very busy but in high spirits.

I am playing Warhammer online still on the Dark Crag Server, and looking forward to the Star Wars new MMOG.

Also looking forward to Dragon age from Bioware.  But i doubt I will have time for that.

Darts is going ok.  We had two weeks off, so I hope we do well on Monday night on 14th and 7th.


August 7th Update~!

Friday, August 7th, 2009

It’s been very busy.  We lost the dart championship by 1 game.  It hurt.  We could have won.  Next season I don’t know what is going on, christian moved to riverhead, so I doubt he will be back.  I took some time off from throwing and will think about next season in a few weeks.

My company is in Chapter 7.  I am working for the trustee of the bankruptcy for a few weeks.  Which is good since the job market is really tough.  I have been on a few interviews, but nothing yet.  I am trying to stay positive.

Kids and family are great.

Short and sweet update.

Update for July 6th 2009

Monday, July 6th, 2009

Here is a quick update

WORK – Is over.  We filed Chapter 7 on June 30th i think.  I am still working here for the Chapter 7 people to close down the business.  It totally sucks.  Even though I am happy to have a paying job, it’s one of the most depressing environments ever.

HOME – Going great!  kids are great, wife is great, etc.  We had a really fun 4th of July.  I was so happy, I almost forgot how craptastic my work like is.

DARTS – We have a 1st round bye for the playoffs.  So we don’t shoot tonight.  We start on the 13th at Biddy’s for the playoffs. COME ON DOWN and cheer us on.

That’s all for the quick update.  See ya

Last week of the regular season, Fathers day, etc.

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

This weekend went by way too fast.  Fathers day was great.  Got to sleep late, eat a lot, and enjoy my family.  Today I got some bad news at work, but let’s hope it’s just rumors.

Today is the final regular season game of darts.  We are home at Biddy’s.  Come on down and cheer us on.


Finally saw Slumdog Millionaire

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

The kids went to sleep in the car after a fun evening eating out at Zorba’s in good ol Astoria.  I miss Astoria sometimes, it was nice to visit.

Anyway on the ride home Alayna and baby Eric fell asleep and the wifey and I saw Slumdog Millionaire.  What a great movie.  I haven’t enjoyed a movie so much in I don’t know how long.  Of course, not being interrupted and getting to sit and relax and watch a move just wife and I helped.  But anyway, if you haven’t seen it GO SEEE IT.  It is “on demand”.

Blackberry Storm

My Current Blackberry was getting all banged up, so since I got a free upgrade I decided to try the STORM.  Only have had it one day, but it’s pretty easy to get used to the push screen.  I like it “so far”.  And easy to copy mp3’s and stuff to and from your computer to the sim.

Yay technology.

Well the old Volvo has broken down a few too many times.  We have been shopping around for awhile looking at new cars, used, leasing , buying, etc.

Last night after a few test drives and discussions, we chose the Honda CRV.  Picking it up tomorrow!  PSYCHED!



Great underwater Volcano Eruption pic!

Also Got a great phone call about next season.  Seems there is a team out there who wants my ugly ass on it!  Very excited.  Immediately after the call I went downstairs and did some practicing.  We are shooting out of Biddy’s.  Team name and stuff will be decided later.
