Happy Holidays

On behalf of the Robinson's we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  Hard to believe Christmas is over and we are approaching the New Year.  

We had a nice Christmas with lots of food and drink.  The boys and girlfriends were with us on Christmas Eve and again on Christmas day.  It was nice to have everyone together.

I have had the last couple of days off so have been working around the house.  Got the garage all cleaned out so that I can park the car in the garage again.   Got out and hiked this morning and then went to the office for a couple of hours. But I have spent a bunch of time on building 3D paper airplanes. 

I found some new plans of various types on the internet.  The first two I built I printed out at home and quickly ran out of ink. So I got the idea to go over to Office Depot and have them print them for and see if they could actually enlarge them. Oh boy they could enlarge them and the colors are some much brighter than what I could do at home.  I am excited about being able to enlarge them as they will look really awesome hanging up in the shop.

Sunday 12/18

I am feeling better today.  Was in a bit of a fog after the graduation parties, we started with whiskey and then moved to beer.   It is never a good idea to mix the two.

Yesterday I heard a large crash come from somewhere in the house.   I looked all over and couldn’t find anything that had fallen.   I needed to get out today and pick up a few groceries and a last minute gift.   Well when I opened the garage door I found what the noise was.   One of the springs on the door had snapped.

Since I was headed out I ran by HD and picked up a new spring kit and replaced both of them when I got back home.

The roads were still pretty slick today.  Came across several cars stuck trying to get up hills and others that were just going too fast for the road conditions.  They will learn, I am sure.  Still pretty cold around here and I think it is going to warm up tomorrow.

So this afternoon after getting the garage door fixed I turned my attention to doing some cooking.  I whipped up about 3 dozen peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate, brownies and then made a pizza for dinner.   The peanut butter balls are for the holidays and will take some to work later this week.

I packed my backpack so I should be ready to walk to work tomorrow.  Going to have to leave early as I have calls starting.

Big Man

Big day around the Robinson house yesterday, our big boy Eric graduated from UCCS.  We are so proud of him.   After the ceremony we had a small party for him and a few of his friends.  Then we ended up going to another bar and then ended up at house.   Now that school is behind him, he is moving to FL. and starting a new job.   Go Eric!

I think I am home for a while so I need to get out and get walking again.   I haven’t really gotten out for three weeks now.    There is just so much going on with work and family.   We got about six inches of snow last night and it got cold, real cold.  I just checked the temperature and it is showing that it is -4 out.

You never met a man like me, you wouldn't understand

Today was long and so was this week.  I headed out last Sunday and spent the week in NJ and NYC for work.  Made for a long week coupled with the fact that I wasn't sleeping well.  Not sure why, but I bet I was lucky to get eighteen hours of sleep over the last five days.  I am wiped out this evening and am ready to crash.

I am home alone this weekend, hope I make out as well as Kevin. 

Candy left on Tuesday and went to Wichita to see her sister and do some property clean up.   She wont be back until Tuesday and I am flying back out on Tuesday.  So we will miss each other again.

Eric helped out and watched the dogs while we were both gone.  Guess it will be Clark going forward now that Eric is moving.

Being that I had to spend fours hours in the air today, I was listing to music and trying to do email, but the wifi was crap.  Thanks United Airlines.

One of my favorite songs is Back in Business Again.  Maybe you have to be a teen from the 80's, but I can crank this up and blow my ear drums out.  Love the lyrics!!!

Of course being on the road I didn't really get my miles in.  Shame on me, but like I said I was busy, plus it was a pretty stressful week.  I probably would have slept better if I would have gotten out.  I need to update the tracker and will do that tomorrow.

Looks like Pebbles and I will be walking in the snow tomorrow.  I have to get out and will be a great chance to get some decent photo's.  That reminds me I should go charge the camera.
