Touch too Much.

Toddlers touch everything. Did you know this? I sure as heck didn't. I found out the hard way that Maggie will try and eat food off the floor or out of the garbage. Yuck is all I have to say.

I have seen Maggie bring me all sorts of stuff. A lot of the time I am asking her where in the hell she got that from. She will bring me food that she hid on us days earlier, books that we didn't know we owned, and stuff I forgot we owned.

This is one reason I threw out all of my old Playboys. I don't need her finding them (and yes toddlers will find it) and bringing them out when we have guests. Also, I really don't want her seeing the mags and thinking that I degrade women. It took me about two seconds to decide to toss them. The wife didn't even ask, I just said I need to get rid of them.

For those of you that don't have toddlers, hide your shit now. Don't put it up high, because these little one's are smart and they will find it. Put it under lock and key.

Wish me luck this weekend. I get to drive 600 miles round trip to pick up my wife's old furniture to give to Maggie ( did I mention she is ready for a big girl bed?). It is time for Maggie to move to a big bed and Lucy to move to the crib. My babies are getting so big. Well, I leave tomorrow only to drive back Sunday morning,  I have to get back in time to watch my 49ers win another game!

Time to get some sleep...

Five for Friday: Five Reasons I am Really Busy

Hello again. It has been a few days since I posted and I was getting ready to leave town last weekend, so no Five for Friday. I was too busy getting the girls ready and packing to write anything. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy writing this blog and I hope you all enjoy reading it.

Here are five reasons I am really busy.

1. Maggie. Yes my first born keeps me very busy chasing after her around the house and kissing boo boos.

2. Lucy. My youngest just loves to be held. So much so that she likes to scream unless she is held.

3. School. I am about a semester away from completing my first of several degrees.

4. Work. Sure I work now. Not much because I still have to stay home to watch the girls when the wife is at work.

5. Priorities. I enjoy this blog a lot, but I do have more important duties elsewhere. I try to write when I can. It is late and my wine glass is almost empty (what? It is for my Irish heart! lol). I'm exhausted, but I feel I have a duty to write a Five for Friday. It is always fun coming up with topics for these posts. Heck if anyone has any ideas, by all means please feel free to suggest some.

To my loyal readers. I have a little contest for you. I have had a common theme in almost all of my posts. I propose a $10 Starbucks gift card for whomever gets the correct answer first. *You have to be a follower of mine on google to win also. I have been stuck a 40 for a while and I feel it should be 41. Maybe 42 for one of my favorite 49ers, Ronnie Lott? Well there you have it. The only clue is a common theme, that's it. Good luck. I will put a deadline on this little contest at Thanksgiving (better hope 49ers beat the Ravens so I will be in a good mood, damn I'm funny). Leave a comment with your answer and the first with the correct answer wins!

I decided to do this just to see if anyone can guess what it is. Having a little fun and I will buy you a cup of coffee in return. Don't be shy now, and before I forget, thank you to all of my readers who keep me going. I love writing on this blog even though I may not always have a lot of time these days.

Five for Friday: 5 Things On My Bucket List.

Hello everyone. I hope everyone had a great week. I know I did and I am glad it is over. One more month of school left then it will be a nice long winter break. Can anyone guess where I will be New Year's Day? I will be in St. Louis watching the 49ers kick the crap out of the Rams and hopefully be heading into the playoffs. I love football.

Here are five things off my bucket list in no particular order:

1. Visit the Southern Hemisphere. I really want to see the toilets flush the other way. That and I really want to see Machu Picchu.

2. Travel to China. I hear they have a pretty big wall or something.

3. Skydive. Yes I want to jump out of a perfectly good plane. High Speed Dirt!

4. Meet one (or more!) of my childhood heroes. Any of the 49ers of the 80's will work (yes even you Matt Millen), but Joe, Jerry, Ronnie, Dwight, Roger, and Steve would be the best. Can't forget Eddie from my 49ers also. Nolan Ryan would most def work too.

5. Drive Route 66 in a Corvette. And I mean all of the way to Cali! Sure I have been on parts of it in Illinois hundreds of times but I want the whole enchilada.

Meant to put this up on Wednesday. Maggie is trying to teach Lucy how to roll over.
