I want to hear these nanny stories!

Also, our new baby is a night owl so I never get to bed before 1:00am. I'm watching plenty of late night tv. The still having to get up at 6:30 for work part is what sucks.

Next year around this time, I'm a fully professional trained chef.

Ahh, yes, those days. Up at 2 am feeding the baby, while watching Championship Duck Calling (Not kidding) on ESPN.

First day at work was really great. As weird as it sounds, it's nice to be in a place with some structure, and that I don't have to be the only person that can do things.

Of course. I didn't imply that you (or anyone else there for that matter) didn't pull your weight.

I just mean that within my scope of responsibility, not being the only person who people could come to is nice.

Well, I wasn't even thinking me since you've never seen my work

Structure is good most of the time. Depends where you are in your career and where you want to go.

I didn't love Channing Tatum until that movie. His personality won me over. His looks - well, that was just a bonus.

-My homeowners insurance is very reasonable, ~$200/month (yes, per month). Product of the damn insurance cartel and living 3 miles from the ocean. Rates doubled in past 3 years. as are my auto insurance rates $600/year - I drive older vehicles, but wish I had one of your Camaros..
-I pay for my kid's rent insurance for their apartments, which is about $100 each.

just wondering where it's cheaper...?

Interesting stuff. I've been having the problem lately of not having a lot of free time to pursue my interests until I'm too tired to think straight. I've barely written lately, for example, despite having rough story ideas in my head. Just been busy, miserable, and worn out.
I took vacation some of Thursday & Monday, with Fri-Sat-Sun easter weekend. Heavenly. Didn't get done what I wanted to around the house, but it was wonderful to only think about work half the time, instead of all the time.

I really hope this clears up soon. Its my 5th one and to state the obvious, they suck.
Best wishes.

Synonymous with Crossfit lingo, that workout above is called the "brian_griffin".
2oz chips + 12oz beer x 4 reps
For time, with target less than 3 period hockey game.

TL : DR - Women do in fact, like muscles. Or maybe they like less of my face.
TL : DR option #3... Creepy guys looking at your profile pic.

reminds me of a "Leave it to Beaver" episode where Beaver forged his report card by adding a line to the handwritten "D" to turn it into a "B". Computer Printed, and now Online progress reports have taken all that youthful trickery away.
