I'd love to own and run a diner style restaurant; and a friend of mine said we would call it fuqua..kind of sounds like fuck you, ha ha ha. and it would be one of those places where its okay to be rude to bad customers, like crabby mike's or dirty dicks. ha ha

6:07pm: So I been having a rough couple months...at first I just thought it was the weather that was just cramping my style, ha ha ha.  But the weather is nice adn it isn't that...it's WALMART.  I cannot continue to work there.  The direction that the store is taking and the damn idiots that are in charge is insane.  I truly feel like everyday I'm on the Truman show.  I mean I don't really have a choice because they work with my school schedule, and what not and I have health, dental, cancer insurance, my 401k, and stock options.  I can't just walk away at this point, within being completely irresponsible.  People always say well if you aren't happy then leave.  Well that may be fine for you, if you are okay with living off someone else, or adding more stress by not being able to pay the bills you do have.  But that's not okay for me.  I don't want to scrap by and I'm so close to finishing school.  Ugh!  Okay just needed to vent.

P.S.  I cannot wait until my road trip this summer!!

7:44pm: Vacations!!!
So we have two awesome vacations planned for this year thus far.

First off, we are going on a cruise to the Bahamas to celebrate our five year anniversary. We are going to Jacksonville sometime before the 6th, our ship leaves on the 6th, at sea on the seventh, in Nassau on the 8th (which is our anniversary), Half Moon Bay (or Cay ha ha) on the 9th, back to port on 11th I think. Then back to VA that next sunday.

The second trip is a dream for me. Of course we all know I am a baseball lover and that the cardinals are my team. Well, my team plays my dad's team on his birthday this year. Which is amazing coincidence because Cardinals are a National League Team and dad's A's are an American League Team, so they don't play each other like ever unless they go to the World Series this year. Now we can see how rare that would be. Anyway, so originally we were planning to fly our there and watch the games whatever, well now...Mary and I are going to drive out there, hitting up Pittsburgh Pirates, Cincinatti Reds, St. Louis Cardinals stadiums, then hit Louisville Slugger Factory and Musuem on the way back through. At some point in the summer we will have hit those three, Philidelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals, and Baltimore Orioles. That will be 6 this summer and we have made a pact to go to at least one a year until we've been to all of them! How fucking kick ass is that???

American League Teams
Toronto Blue Jays
Tampa Bay Devil Rays
Baltimore Orioles
Boston Red Sox
New York Yankees

Cleveland Indians
Kansas City Royals
Minnesota Twins
Detriot Tigers
Chicago White Sox

Oakland Athletics
Los Angeles Angels
Seattle Mariners
Texas Rangers

National League Teams
Atlanta Braves
Washington Nationals
Florida Marlins
New York Mets
Philadelphia Phillies

Houston Astros
Milwaukee Brewers
St. Louis Cardinals
Chicago Cubs
Pittsburgh Pirates
Cincinnati Reds

Los Angeles Dodgers
Arizona Diamondbacks
San Francisco Giants
San Diego Padres
Colorado Rockies

It is going to be so fucking awesome!!!

12:54pm: RIP stranger (to you)
seriously...enough already...you worked in the same building as the guy for a couple months one summer two summers ago. yes he was killed in a car accident, and drowned, yes he has three small children, yes you think it is upsetting (rightfully), and yes you want everyone to pray for his family, no you do not need to add that to your texting signature, no you do not need to add that to every fucking facebook update you post.  no you do not need to "spread" the news via text message or mass email.  not only is it dumb as hell, it is insensitive to to those people that actually knew him, friends, family, his wife!  grow the fuck up, everything is not about you...grief quietly and out of my face. before i say something to you more directly.  you are getting on my fucking nerves.

10:48am: Writer's Block: Let’s Get Physical
What are your fitness goals? What is helping or preventing you from accomplishing them?

I don't really have a goal as like, I wanna weigh this much or whatever. I'd like to fit into a size 38 jeans ago, just for shopping sake.  It seems to be the size that every one stops at unless it is big and tall and apparently that only means BIG AND TALL, not just BIG or just TALL.  So I can't get anything without having to roll my pants fourteen times, and because that I'd like to be able to complete a pick up basketball game with my family without having to leave because I can't catch my breath.  I want to be healthy. I want to be a dad that plays with his kids, not one that watches his kids play.

Helping me so far has been this calorie counter website, it has like everything listed, so you dont even have to research the calories on stuff you've eaten.  For example, if you type in tropicana orange juice, like every time of tropicana comes up so you just pick the one you drank and how much you drank and boom.  It has all the nuitriuion facts up there, add it to your daily intake and you know how much you've consumed and how much you have left.  it's really awesome and free.

I think the Wii fit may be helping a little also, I've lost weight ever time that I've stepped on it, and even better than that is that I can see progress from when I get on, then work out, then get off.  So far I've lost 4 pounds but, I'm not going to get too excited until I'm sure it just isn't a flucuation since your weight changes throughout the day.  You know?  Maybe at ten pounds I'll be excited. ha ha ha.

Preventing me from accomplishing my goal is definately the fact that I dont have a set schedule at work, because it is hard to get work outs in when you get off work at 9 o clock then have to go back to work at 9 am...it is just weird.  My love for food isn't helping either. ha ha ha. too bad i'm not just one of those people that eats to live, i live to eat :) ha ha ha   But it is like day 6 and i seem to be doing alright. So i'm going to keep going.

My dad was really concerned with my weight/health when we visited this last time, so I haven't mentioned that I've lost anything or that i'm trying, so I'm going to try to not say anything until we see him again, then hopefully i've kept lossing and I surprise him.

that's it for now.

tobey :)

4:00pm: We got an apartment.  I am so fucking excited to be out of mary's parents house, it is not even funny.  It even has a washing machine adn dryer and dish washer, and it's 2 bd, only 1 bath but we'll deal.  I am soo fucking excited it's insane.  A ground level apartment with hardwood floors, which I really wanted a house, but this is cheap only $550 and allows pets with an additional deposit that we get back.  A one y ear lease, which sort of sucks because mary hasnt' gotten a job yet, but we'll deal with that, when we get to it. hahahah.
