Need to give Kohler Faucets to someone for Christmas?

On another note - today had her yearly "doctor" appointment. She didn't want to take all the kids with her (I can't figure out why) so she dropped Jude & Elise by the office. As soon as they get there they went straight for the snack room. Elise ate almost nonstop. It is crazy because she is so skinny.

If you recall from an earlier post I had "given" Delilah permission to purchase a new lamp. Alas there is no need to purchase a new one. I got the old one fixed and is working fine. Maybe the next time arises I will check out some quoizel lighting.

360 degree evaluation
I drive my very sweet wife absolutely crazy with my house hunting. Just last week she made very ugly threats if I didn't stop. We aren't ready to buy a house because we are doing damage control with our credit. She keeps getting her hopes up and then is disappointed when nothing happens. Currently, we rent. We have been in the pink house for over a year now. We hope our next move will be into our own home. After our year lease was up we asked to be on a month to month lease in case we were able to purchase a home within the next year. It has been going well. This week we were informed of some unfortunate circumstances that may effect our living arrangements in the pink house. It is frustrating. There is a house we have walked through before and even snooped around some that is nice. The owner is willing to do a land contract or to rent it for now. We are going to walk through it again. We were hoping to move into one of the luxury homes we drive by all the day...but for now it isn't going to happen.

They say we have dreams every night but I never seem to remember them. But I did remember this one. In this dream, I dreamed that I was in Texas on a sales trip. I was in the Dallas area. At the same time Bill Clinton and George W were touring together trying to present some new ideas. I had the chance to meet them. When I met them this is what I said, Mr. President and Mr. Ex-President right now you are the two most powerful and influential people in the world right now. Now is the time for you bring the country together. You have a great opportunity to bring everyone together for the good of the country. It is time to focus on the things that you agree on instead of what divides you. I don't care if you are pro-choice, anti-abortion, pro-war or anti-war, or whatever disagreements you may have. Now is the time for you to sit down and have an open discussion on the things that are dear to your heart. Things like helping others better themselves, giving, charity work. Instead of using words to divide, you need to use your words to build togetherness. Now is the time.

Commercial Collection Agency
Wednesday, September 26, 2007
This is just an empty open spot where I can't really put anything because it is not easily accessible. I thought about buying one of those Fatheads to put up on the wall that you always see in commercials but I figured that wouldn't look very professional. After doing a little more thinking and research I think what would work best might be some silk trees. I wouldn't have to worry about watering it and it doesn't need sunlight. All the while bringing a little of nature right into my office.

What will it take for you to make an impact? Or will you wait till it's to late to do anything?

Michigan will not be in the hunt for the National Championship unless everyone loses 2 games and Michigan goes on to win the rest of their games.
Sunday, September 02, 2007
I have come to the conclusion that I have had enough of Lloyd Carr, he needs to go. He is not able to prepare his team for the big games. Let's take a look at a brief history.
During the last 6 bowl games Michigan is 1-5
During the last 6 OSU games Michigan is 1-5
To add insult to injury Michigan is now forever linked as the only Top 25 team (top 5 team) to be beaten by a division I-AA team.
Until Lloyd Carr is fired or resigns I will not root for Michigan again. I will remain a homeless college football fan.

I don't read many blogs anymore. I don't even keep up with my families blogs very often. (Sorry Tim & Steph) Delilah will ask me if I have read such and such on such and such's blog. I'm always like, "Huh, nope" Good story by the way Tim, about the rabbit.
So, I guess this is all I have for the day. If your lucky I might post sooner than 30 days next time.
Saturday, August 04, 2007
If you read Delilah's blog you already know that I'm planning on heading into the office. At this point I plan on working half days. Work said I could have two weeks off but I want to get back into it so I'm not completely out of the loop.
Other than that everything is going well for the first week of Avery's life.

Al Gore has a global warming agenda as documented by "An Inconvenient Truth" and the Hollywood elite are riding his coat tails and would love for him to run for president.
Let me ask this question. What are you doing personally to fight against global warming?
You can talk all you want about it but lets take a look at a few things.........
1. What about your house? I'm sure it's a large multi-million dollar property. How many square feet is it? I'm sure you have a/c to cool your house during the summer and surely you heat it during the winter months if you live somewhere it is cooler. The larger of house you live in the more energy it takes to either heat or cool it. How does that contribute to your global warming cause?
2. What about flying to your engagements? I'm sure you own your own private jet where only a few people fly on it with you? Is it really less pollution per person to fly in your own jet compared to a commercial airline?
3. What kind of car do you drive? Do you drive a hybrid or a vehicle with high mpg? Or do you drive a gas guzzler?
4. Do you use disposable or cloth diapers for your babies?
5. Do you really take the time to recycle? Or is throwing everything into one trash bin much easier for you?
6. What about drying laundry? Dryer or clothesline?
My list could go on for a while, I hope you are getting the point I'm trying to make. Why should I listen to anyone about global warming when they themselves aren't doing anything practical on an individual level to combat it. The people that get the most airtime speaking out about global warming have the best resource to do something about it on an individual level. They have the money to spend on eco-friendly products. Solar panels, hybrids, etc, etc, in general the things that cost to much for the average consumer.
In closing, it is easy to talk the talk, but can you walk it.

Hopefully we will be able to settle the great name debate.
By the way, did you know that Jimmy Carter was the first president to be born in a hospital.

This was the furthest we made it on the first trip. We were about a full day out from the final destination.

My family all call me Jason. I had forgotten about this until I was talking to one of my cousins and he was able to place me with as my dad's son but didn't remember my name. I told him it was Jake and he replied "Oh your brother is Jason." Um, no that is me.
All in all it was a good time to be there. I was able to talk to my Aunt and Uncle a little bit. They moved to Coshocton and now he is helping with the internet sales at Woodbury Outfitters a hunting outfitter. It is my cousins business. I was able to pass around the fliers he gave to me to some of my co-workers at work. They really seemed excited about it.
Delilah and my cousin Emma really hit off, the next time they have to come to the Akron area they are going to go thrifting together. Delilah can't wait. I'm sure she will blog about that experience.

God will and does forgive us for our sins. This doesn't mean that when we sin and ask forgiveness that there are no consequences for our sin. We still will have consequences for our actions. Consider David from the old testament, he did some horrible things. God forgave him yet he still had consequences for his actions. The things that David did, didn't mean that God couldn't use him in powerful ways. God used David in mighty and powerful ways.
The Apostle Paul is another great example. He was a horrible persecutor of Christians. But God was able to use him in a powerful way.
I guess what I am trying to say here is that even though we may do horrible things, we have to allow the consequences to run its course. A lot of good can come out of horrible situation if you allow God to take control of the situation.
My hope is that God uses me a sliver of how He used Paul and David.

It was a good weekend in the woods. It was a lot of relaxing. We pinpointed a good area we would like to build/move a house on. It has a nice view overlooking Pike Hallow. I'm not sure why it is called Pike.
We are driving around Tim's Subaru. They have our Corolla, Tim is interested in selling his car. It's a little bit bigger than our car and get about the same gas mileage. I have been wanting to buy a little bigger car for a while but haven't really pursued it.
I guess that is all for now.

We went to the doctor for the monthly baby check up. We were able to hear the heart beat really well this time. It's amazing that something in Delilah has a heartbeat. We find out on March 19th whether we are having a BOY or girl. I have already decided that we should name the baby Grayson or Lola. Delilah is not to excited about those names, but I think they are great. Anyhow.
It snowed another couple of inched this morning. I looks really nice. It gave everything a nice new coat of white. Makes it look new. I like the snow, I really like to drive in it. Nothing is more fun than doing a fish tail when making a turn. I just have to watch out for those other people on the road.
I guess that is it for now. Knowing me I probably won't post again until April. ;-)

While at work today, my great boss told me I should go on the Fish website. He said that they had a list of questions to ask your spouse. You probably think it being a little corny to do, but it was actually fun. It took us about an hour and half to go through the list but yet it was still fun. Here is the list.
15 crucial questions you should ask your spouse
1. When I turn on the TV, which channel do I usually turn on first?
2. Which of our dates was my favorite?
3. Was I named after anyone? If so, who?
4. What is my biggest fear?
5. Ketchup: on my fries or next to them?
6. Who in my family do I feel closest to?
7. What's my favorite band of all time?
8. What's my biggest pet peeve?
9. Do I shower facing the showerhead or with my back to it?
10. What is my dream job?
11. In what kind of car did I learn to drive?
12. Was I on any sports team or in any clubs while growing up? Which ones?
13. What's my favorite day of the year?
14. What would I do with a million dollars?
15. What do I love most about you?
This is another fun thing.
7 questions about your marriage
A sociologist from The University of Illinois found if you can answer yes to these 7 questions that your marriage has a 99% probability of lasting forever…
- Did you both grow up in small towns rather than large urban areas?
- Do both of you get along with and like your parents?
- Do you not move often (from town to town)?
- Was the woman in the relationship employed before the relationship?
- Is the woman at least 1 year older than the man?
- Were you married in the church or by a religious person?
- Neither of you is an only child.

How nice it would be if all our regrets, mistakes and misery just could be wiped away when ever the ball dropped. I guess if this were to happen then it would make things to easy for all of us and we wouldn't learn from our mistakes.
I have decided to take 2 things with me into the New Year and make them my resolutions.
1) I am going to learn from my mistakes
2) I am going to live a healthier lifestyle. One of my goals for this healthier lifesyle is to take off 25 pounds. We'll see.
I hope everyone has had a great start to a new year.
