Vacation [Jul. 29th, 2006|10:10 am]

[mood |nostalgicnostalgic]

This week we went to Sheboygan, Wisconsin. We stayed in this great house that was right on the beach. In addition to my family, there was the Valitisis, Kneivels, Teirs, and some friends of Josh and Kate. We had a campfire the first night right on the beach. We drank beers and roasted marshmallows. We had great food every night thanks mostly to Paul. Every afternoon we chilled at the beach. I liked swimming in the waves. Sean enjoyed stomping on the surf. Becky was happy talking with the other moms. The boys went fishing twice and me and Josh caught a salmon once. Elizabeth liked being silly with Sean, although he often was causing her grief. It was nice. I can't wait till next year.

We all went downtown today. Sean had a lapsit program at Harold Washington Library. After that we went out to lunch at a restraunt on Wacker near the river. Sean is sleeping and me and Beck are doing our homework. It's overcast now, a nice day to relax.

I am just relaxing at home tonight. I could have went to Steger but I am tired from working so much lately. I am almost 30. I am too busy to consider what that means for me. When I get some time off I will take an assessment and an inventory. I don't want my life to go by me.

day off [May. 30th, 2006|11:48 pm]

I was off today. I had to work the weekend and Memorial day. This morning we went to mass. We frequently miss mass on Sunday; sometimes I'm working, sometimes we're busy, but mostly just because. I like the weekday mass. It's simple and to the point. After mass we bought raffle tickets and washed our car and heated up pizza and took a nap and did some banking and bought groceries and played in the park and cooked burgers and watched a movie and journaled. Sometimes being off makes for a busy day.
At U of I people often remarked that the college years are some of the best years of your life.
And it's true. But I also feel that now. I realize, in real time, that these will always be my
fondest memories.

i have been back to work for two days now. its hard to believe how little time i have. its busy being a dad. but the good thing about being busy is that it keeps me focused. the times in my life that i had the most on my plate i performed the best. sean learned to walk today. i seen him take some steps this morning. it was a cinematic moment, and made me prouder than i thought it would. i thought that i would be indifferent. even when he crawled, i was excited, but it was not as monumental.

today is sunday but we did not go church, we went to jewel instead. sometimes church brings me farther away from god. i like to go on a walk in my town on sundays. that brings me closer to god, especially on a clear, crisp day like today. last night i went to my first live auction. the people were making bids like they had money to burn. i guess it is all relative. from certain perspectives i'm sure my lifestyle seems wasteful too. tomorrow i go back to work after my week long vacation. we did not go anywhere but it was relaxing to stay in my house. at least tomorrow i will be on pms, so i will not worry about work till i wake up.

my wife and baby are coming home today from indiana. i missed them. i relish being at home by myself but i don't like be alone for so long. i have never lived by myself in my 29 years so i guess that i am not used to it. today i cleaned the condo from top to bottom. i also went on a walk to the dry cleaners to pick up and drop off. i also listened to an old this american life. it was about harold washington's mayoralship. tonight we are going to an art show at the beverly arts center. community artists donated decorated mirrors for auction. becky has one in the show. now she is home and we are going to eat sushi.
