Welcome to my site

Greetings and welcome to my little site.

I have many stories to share and as my friends would say, I like to tell them to everyone. I am not anyone who is famous, rich (at least monetary wise), or of political importance. You could say that I am very much just a regular blue jean, t shirt wearing average joe. I do own my own business and it does free up time for me to spend with my family and for that I am extremely thankful.

I have lived in many states and have had many adventures. I have had more jobs than years I am old. I have a family that loves me very much and me them. Now I do not have a perfect life, and I am far from perfect (which I believe to be impossible anyway), but I try to do the best I can. Like most fathers, you reflect on what you have done in the past and how you can better yourself and set a good example for your offspring. I am no different.

Don’t get the impression however that I am just some boring stick in the mud, I have been in my share of sticky situations and have some pretty amazing stories from my past. The purpose of this site is to share my stories with other fathers and hopefully give them some insight and maybe even some advice on the trials and tribulations of life.

Balancing all the many elements of life is tricky for anyone, but add a wife and children to the mix and it can be down right impossible. The ever unobtainable balance of work, love, and life is one that is tricky to master. I wish I could write a book with the perfect formula to make everything fall beautifully into place but then again that would make it too easy right? We are men, and men love challenges.

Let me offer this special little video I found that always cheers me up. I think this sums up the good days, the rough days, the special days, and why we never, ever, give up!

 

I like to do many things with my family and I like to think we are really active. We have many things we like to do together like sports (especially winter sports), watch tv and movies (we are into things that are kinda geeky), we love to go out and explore new places and try new styles of food. We like to get out in nature and see what quirky things we can get into. In general we are open to new adventures and like to live life freely.

As I share stories on this site, I will talk about my adventures, successes and failures. I will have silly stuff to share as well as serious stuff to get off my chest. I will try and find uplifting stories from both my past and from other fathers, and just write about what comes to mind.

I hope you get some sort of comfort or entertainment from this site and I hope you visit often!
