Yet Another Gratuitous Picture of Jake

From the picture to the right, three things are very apparent:
  1. My little boy is growing up quickly.
  2. At 19-months, he is bigger than most 3-year olds.
  3. He's got a beautiful momma at home.

The answer is: Time and Money

The question is, of course,"What are two things that I never seem to have enough of?"

I know that I am not alone on this topic, but man, this is depressing. I remember when I was a young fella, I always seemed to have plenty of both. At least it seemed that way.

And when I think about it, I should have had much, much less.

I certainly make more money than I did when I was in my 20s, but I always seem to be broke these days. I used to make about $300 a week but I always had some cash in my pocket and all of my bills got paid. Now, the only thing in my pock is lint.

And I used to work two jobs while going to school full time, but I still had a social life and actually had time to go to the gym almost every day.

So what changed?

I think that I know.

I moved out of mom and dad's place, got married and had a child. These factors explain the lack of both money and time in my life.

Now I wouldn't trade my family for a few extra bucks and a little "me time", but I would think that there has to be a way to have it all. Right?

Well, got any suggestions?

Things of Which I Have Grown Tiresome

I'm sure that there are more, but that's all I have for now. Feel free to add to this list...

My son has croup and I had whatever the adult equivelant of croup is. I was miserable for a few days, but now I am feeling much better. As for Jake, he is on some prescriptions and seems to be rounding the corner. I think that he will be fine by the weekend.

Of course he caught croup in the same place that he catches every cold; the church nursery. It seems like everytime that we put him in there he comes home with the sniffles. Some people just don't understand the concept of staying home when a child is sick. Not only for their benefit, but for the benefit of everyone else they may come in contact with.

I have decided to get into better shape. You see, I have what doctors might call a little bit of a weight problem. Anyway, I started today by having a salad for lunch. Granted it was a salad topped with cheese, bacon, fried chicken and blue cheese dressing, but it was a salad nonetheless. Baby steps, people. Baby steps.
