Viva Las Vegas

We leave tomorrow. We haven't been in five years and this trip is going to be a birthday/anniversary trip for us. Just me and the wife are going. My dad is coming up to stay with my son. My wife and I have been married 15 years.

Hopefully...against all the odds...we'll win big and be able to pay down some med bills that stacked up last year. *crosses fingers*

Today, my son is having a birthday party even though his birthday was a month ago. This is fairly typical for us. He hasn't had a B-day party around his b-day in a few years. Still, we did take him snowboarding for his birthday this year. He really enjoyed it.

Long time, no post

I'm trying to get this thing started again, but I've never been much of a blogger. Heading to Vegas this weekend as a 15th anniversary trip. Should be loads of fun. My son's a Boy Scout now and I'm done with Cubs. I still have the khaki shirt though and will most likely put it on again some another leadership role with the scouts.

My grass looks like crap. We haven't had much rain and so it's already dried out and it's only April. By August it should be crispy and brittle. Aleast my son has gotten big enough to push the mower, so the yard work that I despise is getting done quicker. Filed taxes at the last minute this year. Getting a decent return, unfortunately we'll be paying bills with all of it. No matter how much I make, it never seems to be enough.
