The End

I've moved on... you should too!

Feeling passionate I guess...

Excerpt from the book Child Honoring: How to Turn this World Around.

“In the multinational child, the multinational corporation has met its match: the universal child, essential human of every culture. The spirit of humanity.

Your Honor:
My people come from no single country, they are in all of them;
they come from a space and time called childhood,
the place of our common origins; they have no vote,
no way to sway their fate except with the play of their eyes,
their curiosity, their songs, their dance, and their drawings;
for centuries these people have struggled for recognition, to take their
rightful place in communities, as part of the evolving intelligence of our species.
These small and impressionable members of our human family,

Your Honor, they look up to you and the parental society
and believe you love them more than anything;
they expect you to rule in their favor;
as apprenticing adults, they are acutely sensitive to example,
they need consistency and fairness,
they are easily confounded by double standards,
hurt and demoralized by grown-up cynicism.
Do you remember how it felt to be their age, Your Honor?
The children are counting on you.

In a genuinely human court, the child would prevail.”

One Year Gone

A lot has happened in a year.

I moved out of my sister's place.

I got married.

I had a honeymoon.

I got a new job.

I started going to school to get my Early Childhood Education Certificate.

I started going to a new Church.

That's a lot of change. This doesn't leave much time to blog. But I'll try if anyone's still interested. There's less of a shroud of secrecy surrounding what I do, so I'll be able to include some hilarious anecdotes from work.

Such as, how I get called Mr. Celery, or Mr. Hem-a-ding, or Mr. Cellar-ling, sometimes even Mrs. (insert any number of above listed names here)

It's great, I love every minute I get to spend with those little people.

Blogged this while listening to:
El Ten Eleven - I like Van Halen because my sister says they are cool.
Emmy the Great - Where is my mind? (Pixies cover)

If I ever figure out how to post these songs, my blog would be more awesome.

Baby come back!

Number 1... Engage!

We went on a cruise this weekend, and I asked Lindsey to marry me. She said yes and we've been riding the high since then.

Here's a picture that a friend took.

Unfortunately Lindsey doesn't wear rings for me to know what ring size she is, so it doesn't fit so great right now. We're getting it sized tomorrow though, and then everything will be perfect.

I'd tell the details of the story now, except it's bedtime.

The Times They Are A-Changing

I realize that the last post was light on details, so here's the real scoop.

During the summer I was able to go help out at a local camp. And of course we get nifty camp names that may or may not have anything to do with who you are. I've helped out once at this camp before and I gave myself the name Pez. The week leading up to this summer's camp I thought that maybe Hammer would be better, because when I was a factory worker some of the guys would call me that. Sadly, I was stuck with the name Pez. It wasn't really a bad thing though, as most people I was introduced to were interested in talking about my Pez collection. 300+ Pez dispensers and it grows every few years by a few more. That's my Pez story, nothing to do with anything really)

Anyways, when I get back from camp my sister is sitting there and tells me...
"So, I'm pregnant."
I'm all, "Cool! I get to be an Uncle!" and then I'm all, "So does this mean you're getting married sooner?"

Yes, my sister is pregnant so she and her beau will be tying the knot on October 14th, 2007. Pretty much everyone knows now so it's safe to go blabbing everywhere about it. I'm excited that there's going to be a baby in the family, but I'm also wondering how I'm going to continue living here while my sister and her hubby are trying to start a family. I've been living with her for a few years now.

Shh. Shh. Shh. Shh. Do you hear that?

It's the winds of change.

Still around...

Things have slowed down a little. To the point that I have a bit of time to post a brief update.

I'm still here.

I still love hockey.

Let's see if this dusty ol' blog still has legs.

Thursday, May 31, 2007


Well friends, the time has come once again to blog. I know I haven't for a while, but times are busy. And when they're not busy, I'd rather be relaxing than typing up a blog.
Anyone who really WANTS to know what I've been up to just asks me anyways.

The same thing happened last summer. I just became too busy to bother with blogging because I would rather go out and enjoy the season.

Things have really picked up as far as work is concerned. I've trimmed my clients down to 3, but they are 3 solid clients. The workload is manageable, but the schedule is quite different every month.

I'm hoping to have a few vacations here and there, but that takes initiative and time. I'm all good on initiative, but I lack the time to sit at my computer and do up blurbs on my life. Besides, I'd much rather talk to you.

So, faithful blog readers, now is the time that I will bid you farewell for the summer. This blog isn't really a high traffic blog anyways. Most people have either moved on or forgotten.

I'll be back here and there, but not until life slows down a little more. For now though, it's full speed ahead.
