When Homeownership Excitement Wears Off

This past weekend, the excitement of living in an awesome house, with an awesome backyard, in an awesome neighborhood, turned into “Just throw me in a tank full of hungrier than fuck sharks after stabbing me in the ass several times with a fork”.

We had a good storm roll through the area and during the best of the sideways-falling rain, my lovely wife ran out to the garage to tell me we had a serious problem. And we did… because light fixtures are most assuredly NOT supposed to leak water onto your floor.

And that’s when the excitement wears off – when the two-year old roof on your house leaks and you spend a couple of hours tearing soaking wet insulation out of your attic.

And fiberglass itches like a motherfucker. That is all.

My Backyard

This is what I get to see every morning while making coffee:

Why yes, yes, that is a rather large picture. The better for you to see the awesomeness that is my backyard.

 

What A Wild Ride

It’s been almost ten months since I’ve been here and what a crazy ten months it’s been.

In the last ten months life has drastically changed for the good and I couldn’t be happier. I married the woman of my dreams. We bought a house. We’ve adjusted to our new reality and life together. Well, we’re still adjusting to life together, but that’s moving along without any craziness. I’ve never been so happy in my life!

Well, except maybe for that one time I got the exact toy that I wanted in my Happy Meal… I kid, I kid!

I have now achieved almost everything that I ever wanted to in my life and it feels great. Once I’ve become a best-selling author and invented cold fusion, my bucket list will be completed.

Here’s to the rest of life!

The Army Inside

Now get ready for war
It’s starting today

I can feel the distance
Even if you’re closing in
I cannot hide the scars
I still relive them every second
Shots ringing in my head
Bullets chasing me
I brush my fear away
The battle has begun

Now get ready for war
It’s starting today
I’m leading the army inside
I am not afraid to lose
I’m not gonna hide
I’m leading the army inside

I will crush you to the ground
With words you’ll never forget
I’ll hunt you down
It will become the end of your days
The rhythm of my breath calm and slow and deep
I take control today
The fight has just begun

Now get ready for war
It’s starting today
I’m leading the army inside
I am not afraid to lose
I’m not gonna hide
I’m leading the army inside

Now get ready for war
Now get ready for war
It’s starting today
I’m leading the army inside

Today, on what was supposed to be a happy day, you managed to ruin it for me.

Again.

I meant what I said about being selfish. I’m tired of not being selfish in this whole situation when your selfishness is apparently what drives you. I also meant what I said about our relationship – get the fuck out of the way. You’re not helping either of us.

I get it – you don’t trust me.

Guess what? I don’t care. I don’t have to prove myself to you. The only person who matters is eight years old. As long as we’re nowhere near you, we’re fine. Instead of screwing with me, you should me more worried about what you’re doing to her. If you can’t see it, you truly are blind.

I do have to thank you. On this day, a day that was supposed to be happy, a day you managed to turn to complete shit, you still managed to do something for me.

You’ve made my decision easier.
