Since it is a new year, and it has been forever since I wrote on here, I figured I'd try to be more regular with postings and more short stories. I have decided to be more open about my life, and will deal with whatever headaches that brings along.
So my year in 2011 was a nightmare. Got a job, lost a job, maintained the fun (but bad paying) job. We had a car drive through our playroom while one of my sons was in the room, (miraculously unhurt!) and are still fighting my renters insurance for a check to replace all the toys we lost... and it happened in AUGUST! GRRRR!
The best thing that happened to me was watching the boys grow up. They are some damn good looking boys, and are insanely smart too. It has been a challenge trying to find the 'right' way to discipline them, but I think we are doing a good job of it so far. They are very polite kids, and love their other family members like their cousins and such.
I haven't been writing any for some time now, and I miss it. That is part of the reason I am gonna try to do it here more often. I like the creativity when it flows, and wish I could do it regularly. I am also going to start back up painting. I haven't done it since high school, but I was good then, I just need to refresh my skills. I am going to paint a picture that was taken of my father as Santa Claus, and name it "I Still Believe". So many ideas for it, now I just need to fucking do it!
I am taking the application test for the PA State Police in a week. If I get in I will be thrilled! I won't be a regular trooper, I am actually going to train to be a Liquor Control Enforcement Trooper. I will still be a State Trooper, just a specialized department one. It should be cool. Big 'if' though... here's to hoping!
I know this is a rambling entry, but at least I am writing here...lol
