Still Too Good

I know I've used this video before, but just wanted to get up a quick reminder to my wife how blessed I am to be loved by her.

Blue Marble

In May of 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced that the United States would put a man on the moon by the end of the decade. Innovative planning and coordination between many different agencies was required to accomplish this bold plan. When Apollo 8 transmitted this image of Earth, known as the "blue marble", the entire world saw what this program and the U.S. could achieve.

There is no doubt what we are capable of if we determine it within our hearts, and work towards it with every part of our being.

Is anyone else disappointed in the choices for President this year? Seriously, out of the entire American Population, this is what we've come to?

Kids are funny

So, with Michelle gone, my mother has been watching the kids quite a bit. The other day, during a time with Grandma, a conversation ensued regarding our dog Daisy and Michelle's grandmother's dog, Bandit. The conversation turned to the fact that Bandit's lifestyle was not conducive to Grandmother's, and Bandit had to find a home elsewhere. Ali, still disappointed in the news, found out that they had thought about giving him to a nursing home. Alarmed, Ali informed everyone that dogs couldn't be in nursing homes. My mother then informed Alexis that they most certainly could. In fact, there was a dog at her Great Grandma Betty's nursing home. To which, Ali replied...

"Really... what's wrong with it?"

I miss my friend

People often ask us, "Are you really as happily married as you seem?" Well, the answer to that is Absolutely.

It may sound sappy, but this woman is my world.

It's 3:39 AM on night 11 of her being gone, and once again I find myself unable to sleep. Torn by my selfish desires that I need her home, and the understanding that she is there as mother to the rest of our children. I struggle to find a comfortable routine. It's not the fact that I am trying to handle my list of obligations, as well as hers. It's not the fact that if it weren't for Hardee's, some men would starve. As a matter of fact, caring for our children and the absence of a domestic partner doesn't phase me one bit. On the contrary, I am quite enjoying the time that I must make to actually stop and spend the time often forsaken with our children. To me, it's just that a piece of me is missing when she is not by my side.

So, I'm not sure if I will actually publish this post, but I'm thinking that it's cheaper than a shrink.

I love you, Michelle. The kids are fine, but I miss my friend.
