On Cruise control...set at ????

Holy crap...to all of the parents with more than one child, I'm not sure how you do it, but my hats off to you. I grew up in a house with 5 kids, on a dairy farm, with both parents at home most of the time, but running a farm is about a 16 hour a day job for the parents. How in the world did you do it? I don't want to brag, but I think we all turned out pretty damn good!!! (at least so far....the jury's still out on the politician of the family...because you can never trust a politician-he he)

The sad thing is, during the week, on an average day I get to see/play with Gavin for about 4 hours in the evening before he goes to sleep. Am I cheating him from "Daddy Time?" It just seems like there is so much crap that needs to get done- finish the yard, clean the garage, go to softball, finish outside stuff at work before winter comes, spend some quality time with Amy, write on this blog. I feel like the cruise control is on, but I'm not sure if it's at 95mph because of the chaos of the day, or is it at 2mph because most days are, crazy busy, but routine for the most part.

Not sure this message made any sense, but it's what was in my head.

Other Thoughts

**Gopher Football...wow, I feel bad for Brewester for inheriting such a bad team, at least Gopher wrestling is right around the corner

**Keep Tori Hunter-the retards at the front office in Minneapolis made a huge mistake on this on

**Pray for me and my job situation, the industry is getting even worse now that it's winters around the corner

**Sod party on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, everyone is invited

Later for now

Wow 4 hours before bed, that's great! I say thank you Jesus for those 4 hours rather than I only get 4 hours. The first baby is true eye opener to the world and how busy life is. You are a great dad and Gavin is very lucky. The yard will still be there tomorrow, so if you feel like you are missing out on something at home, tell Amy to chill and you will get to it later! :) Just kidding Amy!
