As I sit here Saturday evening, I sit here as a weary dad. A dad who spent hours at a windy soccer complex today (coaching and cheering). A dad who has made trips to various practices over the last two days. A dad who has watched more than his share of Pokemon shows. A dad who has been slaughtered in every X-Box game he was challenged to. A dad who has washed (and folded) seven (7) loads of laundry. A dad who actually cooked a couple meals (one even had vegetables in it) as well as made an obligatory trip to McDonald's.
Yet, I am still alive....ad so are the kids. Not all has been smooth....and I have been rather lazy at times; falling asleep on the couch while the kids played their Spongebob X-Box game. But, I think I can make it to tomorrow. I see the finish line.
Thanks to all for your support.
One thing I have discovered this weekend....my screwball sense of humor has been passed down to my kids. As I sat this afternoon trying to get a little work done, son #2 was complaining that he had nothing to do. In a flash of brilliance, I showed him a site that had video clips from one of my all time favorite tv shows....Mystery Science Theater 3000. What a great show.
Anyway, I cued up the MST3K shorty "Gumby Robot Rumpus". We both got a hearty laugh or two from it. He is now hooked on the show, laughing harder than I have ever seen him laugh as we watched bits and pieces of various shows with Joel and Mike.
I must now prepare for my trip to Atlanta and Winter Haven. Since I will be making presentations, I have to use my "air" time to polish up my Powerpoints.
Hmmm, wonder if I can sneak in a reference to "Manos, Hands of Fate".....
