Another day....

I survived Monday and Tuesday as the stay-at-home Dad. Barely.

My wife loves it when I get to do things that help me appreciate the job that she does every day with the little ankle-biters.

I am currently fighting off a little cold. I am hoping that this thing will leave or at least begin the leaving process before this weekends Duck Opener. I am looking forward to getting out there again this season. I went to the range last night to shoot some skeet and I was once again reminded why I always receive an invitation to go hunting. I CAN'T SHOOT. I get invited because my limit is one more that everyone else will get to help fill. I wanted to go through at least 2 rounds last night, but I gave up that idea after going 3/25 in the first round. This bothers me. In the military, I never had any problems qualifying. I think that the difference is that the M-16 has an adjustable sight. Basically, you don't need to shoot straight - you just need to shoot consistent. You can adjust the sights according to your crappy aim. Also, there are no moving targets there. Where as here I was shooting at a orange disc that looked to the size of a freaking bottle cap. I was proud though, as my boys sat on the benches chearing for me the whole time. Nobody else had their own cheering section.

My wife started a new job this week. She is doing data entry for a local company that provides rebates. She will drive to meet a truck a few miles away at around 1:00 each day to get work for the day and to turn in the completed work from the previous day. It will get her about 4 hours of work each day. The nice part about this job is that I can help with it as well. Since payment is based off of "pieces completed", it makes no difference who actually keys the info. This will by no means allow me to purchase the Vikings, who appear to be in the market for a new owner, but it will allow us to possibly stay in our house a little while longer. I still feel bad for her though, as I still see that this is not utilizing all of her potential.

This Sunday (9/26) will be the kick-off for our 40 Days of Purpose. We will begin reading The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren and hosting a weekly study group at our house. Beginning that Sunday, my postings will contain mostly my thoughts and discussions from the readings for that day. Feel free to grab a copy and join in.
