It's me again

I don't know why but it has just been so hard to find the time to write this past week. It's not that I have a lack of topics to blog about either. I could write about how our Christmas was, or about the conversation that I had with my parents last week. Or the great sex that SR and I engaged in after we had that conversation. Or about how much I dislike HATE Kaiser!

But for some reason I'm just not quite "feeling" it. But in the spirit of blogging I will find my way and tell a little about what has been happening in my life as of late.

I'm not going to delve into the talk that I had with my parents. I'm just going to say that we worked a lot of things out. Things were said that have been needing to be said for many many years. Everything is not perfect. It never will be. At least it won't be perfect for some time to come. Some things that were said can never be taken back.

What I will say about that night is that I learned something about my parents that I could have gone my entire life without knowing. And to make myself feel a little better I'm going to tell you all what I heard. After my dad came back over to pick me up that night and we were driving to his house when he said that he and my mom haven't slept in the same bed for years. Many years. Then he said that they haven't been "intimate" with each other for years before that. WTF! who really wants to know this about his parents? Seriously. Would any of you like to hear this from your parents? Or how about some of the people that are in situations like that. Would you tell one of your kids that you haven't had sex with their other parent in years? Just what I want to know about. The sexual habits of people that are a year or two away from being senior citizens. AARRRRRGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!

On to more pleasant thoughts.

Nope not going to post about the sex that SR and I had. Not after that revelation.

Christmas was a good day. It actually started on Sun night. We took the kids out like we do every year to look at the Christmas lights throughout the town. When we came home SR read Twas the Night Before Christmas to the boys and put them to bed.

That's when the real work began. There were still presents to wrap. I had to go to my work to get all the presents out of my locker and bring them home. SR and I ended up staying up till about 11:30 getting everything under the tree. after we were done with that it was time to hit the hay. It was a very long, emotional day for me.

Did I mention that Summer asked me to go to church with her on Christmas Eve?


Well she did. And I accepted. It was a good day at church with the family. all of Summer's friends were saying how happy they were to see me there. Not sure if it was that they were glad I was there, or if it was more of it's about time you started coming here with your wife. This was a record for me I think. It was the third or fourth time in a month that I've attended a church function with her. A few weeks ago I helped her and a few of her friends to decorate the church for Christmas. That was a lot of fun.

Back to Christmas day. Summer and I are very fortunate and lucky parents. When my sister and I were kids (heck even as teenagers) we would wake up at about 4 in the morning, start calling for our parents, and ask if it was time. They would say no it's not time yet go back to sleep! We knew better than to leave our rooms before mom or dad gave us permission. so the calling and asking if it was time yet would go on till about 6 or 6:30 in the morning. We'd call about every 20 minutes or so. Finally my parents would say fine. It's time to open the presents. We'd open the presents then they'd go back to bed for awhile to get some sleep that we would deprive them of.

Us on the other hand, have kids that will sleep forever if we would let them. I think the earliest that we have ever opened presents is somewhere around 7:45. This year was no different. Summer and I woke up around 7ish, and waited for the kids to get up around 8. Is that lucky or what?

The other nice thing this year was having my parents living in town. There was no rush to leave the house to get to my parents house. We got to be lazy, watch a movie that we got the kids and didn't leave here till after 3. That was great! Plus it was a nice 5 minute drive to get home when the time came.

That's really about all I've got for now. Maybe later this weekend I'll talk about why Kaiser is pissing me off so much. That is of course if Summer don't beat me to it while I'm out hunting this weekend.

I'll leave you with these two final pictures from Christmas day. The first is of me in my Homer Simpson sleep pants. I just LOVE them! They're so cool. The next is of my S-I-L and my sister acting like weirdos at desert time.

Merry Christmas!

Summer and I would like to wish all of our readers a very Merry Christmas. May you enjoy your holidays with friends, family, and loved ones.

May you also have a happy and safe New Year.

I would also like to take this time to thank each and every one of you that stop by here and at Summers blog. The support that you have given us this past year has been nothing short of amazing. We appreciate all of it.

Merry Christmas from CH, Summer Rose, CH Jr., and youngest son.

**I also realize that I really need to post an update to what happened between my mom and I the other night. I just haven't been in the spirit as of late. Just let it be known that everything has worked itself out and we are doing fine now.**

This is why men don't design Christmas wrapping paper:

Happy Holidays! :-)

Letters to Santa

Deer Santa,
I wud like a kool toy space ranjur fer Xmas. I'v ben a gud boy all yeer.
Yer Friend, Billy

Dear Billy, Nice spelling. You're on your way to a career in lawncare. How about I send you a book so you can learn to read and spell? I'm giving your older brother the space ranger. At least HE can spell. Santa


Dear Santa,
I have been a good girl all year, and the only thing I ask for is peace and joy in the world for everybody! Love, Sarah

Dear Sarah,
Your parents smoked pot when they had you, didn't they?


Dear Santa,
I don't know if you can do this, but for Christmas,
I'd like for my mommy and daddy to get back together.
Please see what you can do.
Love, Teddy

Dear Teddy,
Look, your dad's banging the babysitter like a screen door in a
hurricane. Do you think he's gonna give that up to come back to your frigid mom, who rides his ass constantly? It's time to give up that dream. Let me send you some Legos instead.


Dear Santa,
I want a new bike, a Playstation 2, a train, some G.I. Joes, a dog,
a drum kit, a pony and a tuba.
Love, Francis

Dear Francis, Who names their kid "Francis" nowadays. I bet you're gay. I'll set you up with a Barbie.

Dear Santa,
I left milk and cookies for you under the tree, and I left carrots for your reindeer outside the back door.
Love, Susan

Dear Susan, Milk gives me the shits and carrots make the deer fart in my face when riding in the sleigh. You want to do me a favor? Leave me a bottle of Scotch.


Dear Santa,
What do you do the other 364 days of the year?
Are you busy making toys?
Your friend, Thomas

Dear Thomas,
All the toys are made in China. I have a condo in Vegas where I spend
most of my time making low-budget porno films.
I unwind by drinking myself silly and squeezing the asses
of cocktail waitresses while losing money at
the craps table. Hey, you wanted to know.

Dear Santa,
Do you see us when we're sleeping,
do you really know when we're awake,
like in the song?
Love, Jessica

Dear Jessica,
Are you really that gullible? Good luck in whatever you do. I'm skipping your house.

Dear Santa,
I really want a puppy this year. Please, please, please,
PLEASE, PLEASE could I have one?
Love, Timmy

Dear Timmy, That whiney begging shit may work with your\n folks, but that crap doesn't work with me. You're getting a sweater again.
Dearest Santa,
We don't have a chimney in our house.
How do you get into our home?
Love, Marky

Dear Mark,
First stop callling yourself "Marky", that's why you're getting your ass whipped at school. Second, you don't live in a house, you live in a low-rent apartment complex. Third, I get inside your pad just like the bogey man does, through your bedroom window.
Sweet dreams, Santa

Love, Marky

More crap I don't need right now

**New post below this one as well.**

Well yesterday wasn't all sunrises and roses. No. Not by a long shot.

Apparently my mom has been "unhappy" with how things in her life have been going. So she decided to attand a seminar in San Francisco. This was a 3 day seminar having to do with becoming the "you that you always wanted to be". Or something like that. I'm not exactly sure. After I got a bombshell or two dropped on me I was in a different world.

Anyways part of this program is about open and honest communication. Because before you can be the you that you want to be, you have to be open and honest in all of your life. Which means that you must always be honest with the people in your life. So she spent most of her breaks in the day practicing this open and honest communication. And guess who was on that list.

That's right. Yours truly. Me.

So she tells me that in order for her to be who she wants to be she needs to be open and honest with me. So what does she do? She tells me that there has been something that has been bothering her for a quite a few years now. She tells me that she knows I did something when I was a kid. About the same time my sister and I were molested by my cousin. She says that she is my mother and that she still loves me unconditionally. She don't expect me to do or say anything. But that she needed to get it off her chest to become this new person.

Well there wasn't really much I could say. She just comes out of the blue and says I did something over 20 years ago and she knows I did it. WTF?! I have a hard enough time remembering things that happened last week. How the hell am I supposed to remember every detail about what happened in the year 1980 something? That is a year that I don't want to remember anything about. So I said well I have no clue what your talking about or what I'm supposed to say so I'm just not going to say anything.

To make me feel like I wasn't alone she says that well your not the only one I've taken by surprise today. I also called one of my brothers and blew him away as well by saying that I want to have more communication with him than just saying hi at the Christmas party every year.

Um...yeah. That's so the same thing. I feel ssoooooo much better now. Thanks for that little tid bit of information. Then she says to me that that was all she wanted to say to me and that she would let me go back to my evening with my family.

Yeah. Right. You just drop this major bombshell on me and I'm supposed to go on like nothing was ever said? Bull SHIT! So it pretty much fucked up the rest of my night. As well as today too. That's why I'm posting today in the afternoon. I was in a funk at work that I couldn't get out of so I came home. Didn't help. Funk is still there.

Back to the conversation now. I asked her before we hung up if this was something that she was doing with Mary Kay. She said no it was something she wanted to do on her own because she was unhappy with how her life was going. This is when she drops the other bombshell. She's going to use her newly found "open and honest communication" skills when she gets home and talk to my dad. And she's not sure if they will remain married when they are done "talking".

Um....nice one mom. Especially since you just had hoim buy you a new wedding ring not even 4 months ago that he paid 3 grand for. Way to go. Smooth move.

So here we are.6 days before Christmas, and two major life altering things being said to me. Out of nowhere. Merry f'ing Christmas.

This really isn't the shit that I need to be dealing with. Not now. Not ever for that matter. I'm just starting to get my own life on track for once and in the blink of an eye my mom goes and derails it again. Where the hell does she get off tearing my life apart just to improve her own life?

So really all I have to say now is that you can't expect to give "open and honest communication" without receiving "open and honest communication" in return. Be carefuly waht you ask for. You just might get what you are asking for. And when you get it, it might not be as pleasant as you think it will be.

All this is really starting to make me think that what I hear some people say is correct. "A parents job is to raise their children to the age of 18. To ensure that they will be contributing members of society. Once the child reaches the age of 18 the parents job is done. In return when the child get's married and starts his own family the parents are no longer the most important people in the childs life. That roll goes to the spouse and children of the child. You should not worry about making your parents happy anymore. Make you spouse and yourself happy. Every one else is secondary and not as important anymore." That is not an exact quote but real close. It stems from people that are sacrificeing their marriage to please their parents. The parents have done their job. It's time to go out and live your own life the way you see fit.

Really begining to think that nature has it right when the offspring leave the nest and never return.

Hunting pictures

For my first post of today I will post up some pictures I took while out duck hunting yesterday morning. I didn't get any birds. Again. But that's really not the reason that I go hunting. I go out there because it gives me a chance to think about things. I get the opportunity to look at the world and know that somewhere money and other shit don't matter. I also get the opportunity to see sights that many people never get an opportunity to see. So I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.

The mountain range in the back ground is known as the Sutter Buttes. They are a very prominent feature visible for over 100 miles as your driving on I5 through the valley. The land all around is flat rice fields. Except for the buttes.

I have at least one more if not 2 more posts in mind for today so there is more to look forward to.

Tis the season for family pettiness

Does anyone recall this little post back in June? It's the one about my cousin coming out of the closet and announcing that he is gay, and divorcing his wife. Well things are getting pretty ugly now. Which I'm sure they were destined to become. But why the pettiness? I just don't understand it.

So let me see if I can relate whats been going on. I'm sure none of you really want to hear about this. But for those of you that are contemplating divorce I'll just go ahead and post it anyways to let you see the darker side of divorce.

So let's see what's going on now. Since the breakup my cousin has found and moved in with his boyfriend. They are living in a one bedroom apartment. So when he has his weekend to have the kids he goes to his parents house so the kids have their own room. His boyfriend goes along with him for the weekend. The kids really like him and know him as their dads friend. Except the oldest who is 8. His mom told him that his dad was gay a week after my cousin moved out. When they both agreed that they would do it together.

Well a few weeks ago his parents have decided to get a divorce for the same reason as my cousin. So my uncle moved out of the house. The day after he moved out my aunt calls my VERY Catholic grandma to tell her that they are getting divorced because her son was gay. (This is important trust me.) It's also important to know that she has a "medical" marijuana permit. Cousins ex knew about this for years. Never once had a problem with it. Even had my aunt watch the kids for a week at a time so she could go on vacations.

A few weeks ago my cousin and his boyfriend decided that they needed to move to a different city so they could afford a bigger place to live in. That way the kids will have there own room to stay in when they see their dad. The city is an hour and a half away from where they are living now. So now ex is upset and says that she refuses to drive half the distance as agreed on in the temporary custody agreement. So what does she do to retaliate? She files papers with the courts saying that my cousin can not provide a stable home environment for his kids because he is living with a man. Also because his parents are getting a divorce as well and because the kids grandma has a permit to smoke weed. So because of this my cousin is not allowed to see his kids until the court can evaluate the situation in a court hearing. Which won't be till after the new year.

So what does my aunt do this week? After what she did by telling my grandma about my uncle when it wasn't her place to do in the first place? She went to all the family members Myspace pages asking/telling us to remove my cousins ex from our friends list. Because she is not what the family needs to be associated with.

Personally I don't think that either one of them are what the family needs right now. I really wanted to stay friends with my cousins ex. But this little stunt was just to dam far. She's just doing it to hurt my cousin because she knows how important they are. She's using them as little pawns instead of letting them be kids. She changed the phone number so he can't call and talk to them. She even took the kids and hid them from all the family members for awhile.

Now I didn't need my aunt to say what she did about taking her off my myspace page. But where does she get off saying that when she told my grandma about my uncle when it was none of her business? As religious as my grandma is it could have been very bad. She's in good health but she is also 83 years old. Who knows what the shock could have done to her. I was going to do that on my own. Without being told.

The good news is that I'm only spending Christmas with my parents, sister, grandma, SR, and my kids. No other family to bring me down. I've got enough shit to deal with without them adding to it. Seriously thinking about just closing out the myspace page.

The greatest wife

I challenge anyone to tell me that they have a greater wife than I do.

Any takers?



Good. I wouldn't want to embarrass anyone.

So why is Summer the greatest wife? Because through all the troubles we have gone through in the past 2 weeks with our children she still has the ability to remain the loving woman I married 12 years ago. Sure there have been many tears shed in the past week over issues that were out of our control but she still has remained strong after the tears have fallen. She still has her faith. That is something that I truly love the most in her. Her faith. I may not be a "believer" in the eyes of many many people. But it don't mean that I have no respect or admiration for those that have an unwavering faith.

So what has she done to make me so happy lately? Let's see here............. For starters she tells me several times a day that she loves me. She gives me hugs, kisses and love, every day when I walk in the door from work. She makes me feel like I'm the best person I can possibly be. She's really turned very playful as of late.

Take yesterday for example. We were sending some text messages to each other. When she sent what she thought was her last one she sent an animation of a person sticking out his tongue. That started an hour and a half text message marathon between the two of us. It lasted until I walked in the door from work. At which point I took her to our bedroom, took off her clothes, laid her on the bed and played wonderful mouth music on her southern regions. Which led to us having wonderful hot animal sex. She even talked dirty to me. Very, VERY HOT!

Afterwards she made me the happiest that I have been in a very long time. She attended my therapy appointment with me last night. Even more importantly she opened up and talked! She talked more in an hour last night than she did for the 7-8 appointments we had in marriage counseling 4 years ago. She even said that she will return to the next one next month. We had a great time last night at the appointment. We both laughed a lot when we were talking. The feeling continued for the rest of the night as we finally started our Christmas shopping. Unfortunately we're not even half way done. We've still got a lot more gifts to buy for the kids, my parents, my sister, my grandma, and a certain diamond ring I've got my eye on for that special someone in my life,. ;-)

I'm going Nucking Futs!

I have no clue what is going on with me today. Outside of the fact that last night didn't happen as I was hoping and it don't look like it will be happening tonight either. But that's besides the point.

Today while at work I was in the same vehicle as annoying coworker (who by the way isn't so annoying anymore). For some reason she said something and I spit out something totally unexpected.

I said to her- You know that it is a proven fact that 28.5% of women a battered?

She replies really?

Yes it is. And to think I've been eating mine plain all these years. I got a big laugh out of it and her reaction. She turned real red and told me that I was just wrong. But she said it was funny.

About 15 minutes later we're in the yard eating lunch. She asks me to tell our boss what I said because she knew he'd find it funny. So I told him and laughed even harder than I did the first time.

he responded by saying that it's a fact that women think about sex on average of every 6 hours. Men on the other hand think about sex every 30 seconds on average.

Oh God! I'm laughing so hard about this all over again I can barely type.

So after lunch (which I got to spend with Summer as well as coworker and boss) my boss asks us to come in his office to see the pics he took while in Ha. to see his son. We're looking at the pics for awhile when another female coworker (different crew) comes to the office and looks in. I said excuse me is there a problem? May we help you?

She responds Is there a mouse in your pocket?

So for some unknown reason I said would you like to help take it out?

My boss covers his ears, other coworker says there he goes again he's on a roll today! Coworker asking about mouse steps into office and wants to know if I was serious.

We all got a good laugh out of it.

after work I'm telling the whole story to SR on our way shopping and I again start laughing so hard my jaw hurt, my sides hurt and I had a hard time staying in my lane.

I have NO idea what has come over me today. But I am just full of laughter and weird jokes.

I think I just need to get some hot monkey love. What do you think?

Wednesday, December 06, 2006


Just want to stop by real quick like to say that I'm still alive. Been extremely busy this week making Christmas cookies. I've made 5 double batches of cookies since Sun. night. I still have at least 2 more double batches to make before Sat. afternoons family Christmas party.

The other thing that I wanted to say was that sex is just the best thing. It's fantastic! When two people that love each other get together and show their feelings physically it's just amazing. Made a slight medication adjustment last week and this week I'm hoping tonight will be #3 in 4 days. **fingers crossed**

Almost forgot- last night SR saw a commercial for the Victorias Secret show and asked me if I would like to watch it with her. How awesome is that? :D

Where I'd rather be tonight

This video is from a live concert. It is Trans Siberian Orchestra. The song is called Christmas Eve Sarajevo 12/24. They are doing a concert here in Sacramento at Arco Arena tonight. Unfortunately I won't be making this year. Again. :-( I have been wanting to see this show for years. I've heard from many people that have seen it that it is an excellant show. They have an awsome light show that goes along with the music.

I make this promise to myself: I WILL go see them next year! At any cost I will see them live.

Funny shit right here!


| More Videos

I found this video over on my cousins Myspace page. It takes awhile to get there but this is HILARIOUS!
