My oldest son and I checking out the sites
on the way home from Florida.
Well I guess I'll just start off by saying hello and thank you for checking out my blog.This is the first blog I have ever had. I'm not normally the type to talk (or write) about how I "feel" about certain subjects or what I'm doing on a day-to-day basis in this kind of format. I do however, love to write about how I feel in poems or song lyrics or write short stories or movie ideas, and have since I was a kid. But I've decided that has got to change If I'm ever to get out of the situation I am currently in. I am the father of two amazingly handsome and silly little boys and married to a very tough and smart woman. We have currently been fighting with the bank (name of bank withheld but should be obvious to anyone in the same situation) to keep our home for the last year and a half, after my wife was then fired from her job while pregnant with our second son and later I too had falling victim to the economic downturn and lost my job a few months later. After the long song and dance of them lying, losing paperwork making false claims and going through several different negotiators etc. ,we have to decided not to fight it anymore and let them take the house and stick it in (your discretionary orifice of choice). My wife and I run an in-home daycare now to make the mortgage,and all of our living expenses. While it works for the short term it is not a realistic long term plan for us to create a better world for ourselves or our children. So I have decided to create this blog as a written commitment to myself and my family to stop letting my shyness or lack of self-esteem from time to time keep us from better ourselves and to stand against the boundaries of self-doubt created by myself or by the powers all around us, which try and enslave our minds everyday with doom, gloom, apocalyptic visions of our future and war. And I will attempt to win our freedom with creating dreams and opening up the doors to imagination and infinite possibilities and quite possibly, a scream or two. ;) all with the power of a few keystrokes.
