Six Weird Things About Flounder
Everything bad that happens to me happens on the left side of my body. Since I was a kid, I have broken my foot, cut off two fingers, cracked three ribs, gashed open my palm, shattered my knee cap, had a blood clot in my leg, detached my retina, had a cataract, and separated my shoulder. All of these injuries have been on my left side. As for my right side, I haven’t even had a hang nail.
I absolutely can not stand anything touching my nose. It drives my completely insane. It is my kryptonite. My wife knows this, and when she is pissed at me, she will hold her hand over my nose until I cry like a little bitch.
I can fall asleep faster than anyone you have ever met. People who have witnessed this would swear that I have narcolepsy. I have recently been diagnosed with mild sleep apnea and had surgery to have my tonsils and huge adenoids removed, so this might be removed from my list soon.
I bite my fingers like a rabid hamster. Not my fingernails so much, but the tips of my fingers next to the nails. I bite my nails too, but lots of people do that.
I still have my wisdom teeth, as does every member of my family. The have never grown in and become painful like in most people. I tend to think that makes us superior in some way. Or maybe we all just have big mouths.

Now I could let that get me down, but not the new and improved Flounder. I'm just going to be thankful that I have a job to do.
I do, however, miss my wife and son. It was really awesome spending that much concentrated time together, especially being the recipient of Jake's hugs and kisses. (He just learned how to do both while I was home!!)
Now for some randomness...
I have ordered the flooring and kitchen cabinets for the new house, and hope to be moved in by mid-March. Hopefully we will celebrate Jake's first birthday there with our special guest, Elmo.
My surgery was a complete success! I am sleeping much better and a few people commented to me that I just looked healthier. I'll be hitting the gym in a couple of weeks and will hopefully be ready for softball season. (This is not a commitment to play, Alex & Morgan!!)
How bad of an influence is Kevin Federline? He single-handedly took the biggest sex symbol in recent memory and turned her into Ripley from Alien 3. The dude is the white version of Bobby Brown.
I haven't watched a new movie in a while. Any suggestions?

The times, they are a changin'
I have spent the past nine days at home recovering from surgery to remove my tonsils and adenoids. Every morning has brought a new kind of pain; First the throat. Then the jaw. Then my teeth, and now my ears. I've also been battling a cold that has taken out Mrs. Flounder and Jake, so it's been a little rough.
But over this time, I have done some thinking. I have come to the conclusion that I shouldn't be nearly the miserable bastard that I am on a daily basis. I have a truly blessed life, and this medical leave has done nothing but prove that over and over again.
First off, I have a job that provides me with excellent health care coverage, so this operation will cost me under $300 for everything, including the hospital charges. My employer also offers short term disability insurance at a rate of 80%, so I'm really losing very little income and none of my vacation time (of which I get 20 days a year, btw).
I have gotten up every morning with my son crawling across my chest, giggling. If there is a better way to wake up, I haven't found it yet. Then I get to spend the whole day with my wife and Jake, taking naps, playing in the nursery, and eating ice cream.
On top of all that, my buddy Morgan is putting down the subfloors in the new house. He offered to do it because he wants us to get moved down there as soon as possible. Is that a great friend or what?
And I haven't even mentioned the percocets!
My point is that I have it pretty good in this here life. If the operation was a success, then I should be able to sleep better which will give me more energy on a daily basis to actually live my life. I might even work in a trip to the gym a couple times a week and actually get my big ass in shape.
So let me introduce to you, Flounder 2k7, the shinier and happier model. I can guarantee that there will still be some rants because I am sure that someone will pee in my cornflakes once in a while, but I am going to try to keep on the positive and give thanks to God for every good thing in my life.
