Well it's same old same old here. Working 5-7 OT shifts every month, trying to hold things down while the wife is only working PT and finishing her Bachelors (sp) degree, and wondering if I can be put in jail for locking y daughter up. She's 12 going on 20, and the change from this past spring to now is almost too much. i know she's getting older yad yad.. but to have her mom blowing a gasket every other day now isn't fun.

I really will try to get in here more oftern, but time is still short even at work. I'm still doing the Goallineblitz thing. My team won the championship last season, got moved up to a higher level, and got mashed. So reloading the gun so to speak and we should be in the fight again. Add to that I have 10 players to maintain of my own, and 2 teams I defensive cordinate for, along with 6-7 other teams I GM/scout for. Yeah I'm on that site 70-80% of my nights here at work.
Add to that my asinine adult ADD kicked in, and I'm currently working on a website for all the teams that I affiliate with along with a seperate forumso all players from all teams can connect easier to avoid dealing with the clowns on the main forums.

So that's it in a nutshell.
I am sorry to those people sending me stuff on Myspace, but I rarely use it anymore, and when I do it's mainly to keep in touch with Plinko. That's almost useless now as he's a bit of a vagabond, and has been craching at a couple different places while he works on his music and the band that has sprung up from nowhere that asked him to front for them.

Sorry as normal that it's been so long since my last pitstop. Busy as ever with work and some other projects.

So you have an answer to the question "How have you been"? When you stop in here.

Not to be foul mouthed, but Sh*ty.

As per my usual I'm finding that life is having it's good old time with me, and this has been about the worst time I've seen in... well... in my entire life I'd have to say. No details as I really don't want to delve into it right now, but suffice it to say I've found yet another thing I can screw up.

A very belated and happy holiday's to you all, and my best to each and every one of you down the road.

Mike

OK I guess you all know by now that about a month ago I went through a divorce. The lus to this was that it was an overall mutual thing. The "fire" from the relationship wasn't there for some reason. I think we both let it go and by the time either of us said anything it was too late. Sucks because I still love her, but time to move on to yet another part of my life. I'm happy that from this burning of another part of my life I've again found new things to propel me a bit. I've started back to school to get my AAIT (Assosiates of Arts in TechnologY) throught he U. Of Phoenix. It's a nice easy starter with the 2 classes I have. With there never being more than 2 at a time.
I still get to do stuff with Kala and that was my main concern when my marriage went down. She's told my Ex that I'm always going to be Dad, and just saying that makes me smile. biggrin
Down side is being single... it's the one thing I hate. I don't fear being single I just don't like it. For many reasons.
I'm shy to the point of being almost retarded around women I'm interested in, I hate the Bars, and around here that's about the only way to meet someone, I want a person that isn't looking for a short term whatever fling kind of thing, and again Bars+relationships= bad news IMHO.
Plus my confidence in my appearance is easily at an all time low. I'm working on that part for my own well being by finally getting the dental work done I need(some bad teefs) and trying to eat better.
I can't fathom finding anyone right now since anyone I'd consider in my age range(32-43 or so) is not going to be terribly impressed with the fact I'm living in my parents house again. I know I can afford a place, but I really want to save up some cash with my much lower monthly bills right now so that I can look to just buy a house instead of renting something again. No reason to pay for something I won't own.
More downsides to this at the moment are that my few friends around here are either married or more or less always busy so there's nobody to go chill with. The friends I have made from my time with Angie (AKA Her friends from before we got together) all say that they're still my friends and yada yada.. funny how since this happened I seem to be not getting the message or calls to let me know something is going on. I've gotten one call form my Ex's best friends husband who I consider(ed) about the best friend I have around here right now. He called offering for me to go hang on Tue a couple weeks ago. Funny.... I had to work that night, and Angie just happened to be there.

Overall I'm finally able to do things just for me, and that's not a bad thing overall. However I honestly hate being single, and with my love life as messed up as it is I can't fathom being able to find anyone that I match up with well. I'm not going to accept anyoe that isn't into more of th things I like again. I've done it the last two times I've been in a relationship.

Hell I'm thinking I should look into one of those damn online match making sites.

Yep now I feel pathetic. smile

Regardless I have to say that LOST has been great this season, Heroes is back to it's 1st yr form, and there's just too many other shows I've gotten into in the last 6 months.
Dr. Who(waiting for season 4 this week), Dexter, Weeds, Deadwood, old CSI, Earth2(very old, but very good), and then my general amount of random junk to top it off.

Well there you have it campers... my life in a nutshell at this point in time.
If anyone knows a pretty, single, low drama woman looking for a middle aged, bald(it's cool though wink ) bit overwieght, LOST nerd, Video game nut, that loves movies and is tired of only doing the party time fun(AKA drink every weekend) let me know. I would love to meet them. ;)

Later guys, and I'm changing a few things around with what I'm doing online, and should maybe be able to stop in and babble again more often.

Sorry about your divorce, Snootch. Sounds like you're doing things now that you've wanted to do for a while. Hope school goes good for you. Sounds like you've got a lot of avenues to explore. Good luck with everything.

Yeah I know it sucks being single. It's cool that you are going back to school though and doing some things that you need to do to move on and be happy.  smile

Well I did in fact decide WTF and see what the whole single's site my buddy told me about was like. I'm not 100% sold on it, but it's intersting at least, and the up-side is I'm talking via messages and IM with a very cool lady from southern Mn. and hey... she's a LOST fan also. Can't go wrong there at least. biggrin.gif
Other than that went to my grandma's wedding on Sat, and got to spend extra time with Kala over that time.
Hope everyone is doing well. Time to go try and figure out what my instructor wanted for this assignment.

Snootch, I care about ya which is why you know I'm always gonna tell you what I think. Being single is rough - I completely agree. Personally, I myself would never get involved with a guy if he is less than a year divorced. There's too much stuff there, you know?

I would gently make the suggestion to rethink looking for someone  newin your life and instead focus on making your life better, getting into the right frame of mind and gaining some stability. It will make you more secure, and more available for someone else as well as it is the fair thing to do for yourself and the other person.

That's only my opinion, I cannot fault or judge you if you do or feel differently. 

ON the next note - did you say you were on Wow? I have a lvl 34 druid on the Borean Tundra as well as a lvl 4 human warlock. I made a gnome on Duskwood, but haven't been on him but once.

Good to see you on the boards again! TTfN

mike you have always been one of the sweetest people i have ever known! i will always consider it an honor to see you as my friend!
as single people, we are often cursed with that role...the best friend a person can be. wwe listen, we comiserate, we are there for anyone else... and this finally becomes a comforting role to have....
i have suddenly found myself growing closer to retirement, i have LOST the desire to work, and i am living with my sister, collecting unemployment. most of my friends are online and i have never met them... but you are all lovely and kind and i love you all!
mike, you are the best! nice to know you!

WOWSERS shocked.gif
I can't believe that I haven't posted in here since March... let's see.. what's been going on.
Well to update on the whole dating thing first off. I did in fact meet, and start getting involved with someone from Norh Branch near the middle of April, and that included some incredible time spent on a two day get away in Duluth together walking along Lake Superior, some time spent with me traveling down to see her, and meeting her family etc... That has since ended due to mutual thoguhts on it being a bit of bad timing for her with a new grandchild on the way for her, just life at home, and some medical things she was dealing with she couldn't invest the proper time that both her and I would want in a relationship. I can say I was falling for her, and there was a very strong connection. We've maintained contact since and it's been good to hear that thigns are good for her now That all ended in early June or so, and I've since been involved in a wedding of my friends, still going to school, hating my job, and spending what time I can with Kala. Angie and I have had a few bumps at times when for whatever reason she finds the need to be jalous even after it's been made very clear that regardless of my interest in maybe working things out with her that she didn't feel that. So I've moved on, and now..... She's seeing that "The grass isn't always greener" I guess. Overall we manage to maintain good relations that help with making Kala know we're both there for anything and verything.
Now.. more recent I started getting into a few TV shows that I managed to pic up a season or two of over the summer. So a quick list that i can remember...
Bones Season 1 (Looking for more on ebay as I go)
Roswell (All seasons)
The Tudors (SE1 & 2)
Dexter (SE1&2 on DVD 3 on DVR and laptop)
Sons Of Anarchy (All online SE1 & 2 is currently on)
Stargate Universe (New show just started )
Actually and a side note for all shows curently showing I watch everything online. I haven't seen a show live on TV in well over 2 years.
Eureka (latest season is over, and was great)
Fringe (Season 2 is better than 1 so far IMHO)
Flash Forward (A couple episodes behind, but good so far)
Heroes (Watch it all on my 360 via Netflix)
The Unit (SE1 on DVD & trying to find other seasons online)
DR WHO (all online, and finally found season 4 online 2 days ago)
Generation Kill (DVD it was a HBO miniseries about the gulf war.. very interesting)
Currently starting to watch Prison Break on DVD since it's available at the video store I have an unlimited rental plan at.

Looking forward to LOST again as always, and have really tried to stay off LOST sites or at least the spoiler sections since I want to do my best to feel like I did when I watched the first couple seasons.

And now.. as of a couple weeks ago thngs here at work are getting ... iffy at best.. there's been some corperate crap, and they're on regular witch hunts for anything they can get now. There's many of us that are feeling that this place isn't long for remaining open... youth counts are down about 20+ since this time last year, and they aren't getting enough in to cover those leaving. I can't say that would break my heart though.. I'd get dislocated worker assistance, and they'd have to pay for my schooling along with giving me some form of severence also. So I'd be ok for at least a year or so,a nd in that time I'd be damn close to finishing my AAIT so I'd have something to use for a real job as I get ready to start my BD in either Journalism or maybe if they have an option for it I've been thinking of graphic arts again. Minaly I'm finding that as much as I want a technical education because it's easier to find a good job I'm going to have to understand and accept that it would/is in my best interest to find something in a more creative field.
Currently trying to figure out how I can work thigns out to buy a house.. I can't see the reson to pay $500 a month to rent a 2 bdrm house when if I'm buying it the monthly would be around $200-$300. Seems stupid to me to do that.
And.. well my love life is at least warming up again.. I met a very cool lady through one of my best friends. They went to school together, and he introduced us when we were both at a party about 3 weeks ago. We haven't gone out yet, and I think that'll be this weekend (I'm hoping). But we've talked about every other day on the phone, chat on FB once in a while, and overall I'm very into getting to know her. She's got a couple daughters of her own, but the big thing is she is not only ok with the choice I've made to care and helpraise Kala, but it's one thing that attracted her even more to me I geuss from what she told me. So we'll see where that goes.

So to all my LOSTIES in the Treehouse I'm really going to make an effort to get thingsupdated in here asap, and IR since you've got you some schooling in the stuff if you have any ideas or would be interested in making a graphic let me know I'd be happy to honor another LOSTIE that way instead of it being my work again.

Later peeps biggrin

I'm glad to see an update!

Sorry things didn't work out with Angie, but I hope things go well with the new love interest. I think it's so great that you are still a part of Kala's life!

About Lost, I heard that they are really going to keep it hush hush this season. We are not supposed to have any promos whatsoever before the season starts! If people really want spoilers they are going to have to hunt for them I think. So it's cool they are doing that.

Thanks for thinking of me in the update. I'll let you know if I have any ideas or come up with any graphics.

Just let me know IR,a nd if you want to email me feel free to use the one I just created... actually it's for a "side" project I have been messing around with on FB now.

windowlickingood@gmail.com

If you are interested, and have ideas or anything to run past me feel free. I check that every day or two.

As for "love interest" ... that's a bit far for where we are right now. smile.gif I'd like to think it might go there since she's a very cool lady, and I'm digging things so far, but we'll see.

And now I will be spending a bit of time in here copying and getting my Travis stuff together for a friend who's interested in reading it. God.. I don't know if I want to send it to her since I read the first couple parts... Ugh it wasn't very good, and not nearly what I know I could do now Oh well.. it's just to see what she thinks for maybe some co-op work on something down the line after she's done writing the book she's got going now.
