Halloween is coming up and my daughter’s ninja costume is nowhere to be seen.

Well played, ninja costume. Well played.

If he’s ‘Safety Bear,’ where’s his pants?

It’s ours.
Cross your fingers and your toes, people. We viewed this place and the guy practically approved us on the spot.

I am cautiously optimistic but not celebrating until I have a contract signed…

See those boxes.
I was supposed to fill them with as much of our crap as possible. Instead, some idiot kid with a simple task of checking to make sure an active application wasn’t in place… didn’t.
Someone LITERALLY moved into my new place today. And the rental property can’t (or won’t) advise him of the mistake and have HIM move.
So I’m sitting here, drinking a few freshly bought beers shaking my head in disbelief.
We had it. My asthmatic daughter’s eyes grew like saucers when I showed her a home I found her free of allergen soaking carpet. It was an amazing Super Dad feeling. Now I have to explain to her we are back at square one with a lot of places only floored with carpet.
I have a rule I made for myself when I got laid off years ago. Feel sorry for myself that night then dust myself off tomorrow and get to work fixing the problem.
But tonight, here’s stage 1.

Some Fridays can eat me

There is nothing like taking a day off of work, setting up to pack, get a UHAUL ready and find out that the place you were all but guaranteed you were getting to move to has fallen through thanks to someone’s clerical error.

Seriously.

So instead of having a nice carpet free place to move into I am scrambling around only to find out of my price range crappy places.

Today? Today SUCKS

When your cousin’s kid says she wants a DVD called ‘Doc McStuffins’ for her birthday, make sure you’re ordering it from the RIGHT website.
Don’t you hate when you try to high five the boss, but he tried a fist bump, so he flinches when you close your eyes and move in for a kiss?

Groomsmen should never goof off during pictures. Especially after the bride turned to the ‘Dark Side.’

It’s nice to get recognition at work for your performance but the avatar they used for me is a bit cruel…

I was honored to stand at my friend’s side for his wedding Sunday.

I shot footage on the sly from my phone and thought I would share with you guys the video I made for him and his new wife, using the song they picked for their dance. I’m so happy for them both.

(Bonus shot of my daughter and I doing a new dance craze she completely thought up.)

We clean up nice.
