July 4th Weekend….

Posted in Family, General on July 6th, 2010 by James
July 4th Weekend....

I must say that my July 4th weekend was great. I did have work on Friday and Saturday. Friday after work, went on over to my brother’s for some drinks. Saturday, he invited us out to party with some old friends. Good drunken times both nights. Nothing insane by any means, just really laid back and relaxing.

Sunday, (July 4th) we left the house by 10am to get on up to Evanston. Once we got up to Evanston we stopped to grab some smokes. 30 bucks a carton. SCORE! A carton is SLC is now costing 50-60+ a carton. I ended up getting 2 cartons. Got to Becky and Deans and gave Jayden his birthday presents. He loved both the mp3 player, and the cell phone.

We packed up the guns, and went on out to the usually spot. We popped off atleast 200 rounds of 9mm, and 100 shotgun shells. Good times for sure. Something about shooting skeet I just love. Once we were done with that. I grabbed some blueberry beer, and had some bbq hamburgers. Did I mention that the weather in Evanston was AWESOME!!!! Once the sun set, we had to throw our sweaters on. During the day was perfect. I’m guessing it was in the low 70’s/upper 60’s. In the evening it dropped down to the low 50’s.

Dean had some fireworks, and I ended up buying a few fireworks. The fireworks were great. No loss fingers. Glad did had a firework go off about a foot away from her head. Come about 11pm, we called it a night. We were beat, and still had to drive back to SLC.

Overall a great weekend. I had both Sunday and Saturday off from work. Tomorrow I have off from work. I need to dump a bunch of money into my car. I’m guessing about 800 bucks. The bulk of that being tires, and an alignment. I think I have some front end issues going on. I was told about a year ago that I need a strut mount bearing. I was quota about 100 bucks for that part/labor.

I don’t want to dump so much money into my car, but it needs to happen. I also need to get rid of the lizard. I just don’t have time for taking care of the lizard.

So I got someone to trade shifts with here at work. He is covering my Saturday, and I’m taking his Wednesday shift. Doing this so I can make it to the family reunion at Lagoon.

Awesome 5 Day Weekend….

Awesome 5 Day Weekend....

I had Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday off from work. Had a great week.

Monday after work started off me rushing home, getting ready for the show. Me, Glad, and Megan cruised on down to Club Sound to catch Lower Class Brats, and Vice Squad. Had a blast at the show. Lots of booze, old faces, and drunken good times. Glad was so trashed she ended up falling out of the car when we got home. Me and Megan stayed up till about 3 drinking and bullshitting.

Tuesday, I ran Glad on up to her part time job, and picked her up. Ben called and wanted me to head on down to the recording studio. That was good drunken times also. We then went on over to Burts for more beer and music. The local band sucked, the touring band wasn’t too bad. There was maybe 10-15 people at the bar. Really empty, but had good times with my brother.

Wednesday from what I remember was a mellow day, along with Thursday also from what I remember. Thursday we did end up watching Frozen River. Glad hated it, and thought it was stupid. I thought it was okay, and could have been better. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I paid more attention to the movie.

Air Show Last Saturday

Air Show Last Saturday

Last Saturday (June 6th), the family went on up to the AFB for the air show. The pictures are located here. I think we all had a good time, I know that I did. I know that James wasn’t to excited about going up there to begin with. Jayden was excited, but he was done towards the end and had enough. We ended up hitting the road shortly before 8am, and got up there parked and everything by around 9ish. I very glad we showed up when we did. When we left at 11:30, it was a total zoo. Traffic everywhere, people everywhere, traffic backed up for miles. Total insane zoo. Anyway….

Grrrr… Frustrating Week

Posted in Family on April 11th, 2009 by James

This past week has been frustrating for a few things. Don’t know the best way to put it, but half way into the week, it just seemed like everyone just wasn’t getting along. I think it started on Wednesday. Cause of events on Wednesday, me and Glad gave in and brought a pack of smokes. Felt really bad for going out to buy a pack. Oh well, shit happens.

Thursday was Glad’s mom 50th birthday. She hung out with her mom during the day. I ran the kids on up to Evanston. Kids had Thursday, Friday, and Monday off from school for spring break. That evening when I got back, we took Glad’s mom out to eat at Applebees. That was nice and yummy.

Friday was alright, between a few people I got really frustrated, and guess what? Yup brought another pack of smokes Friday night. Went on up to Evanston to pick up the boys and bring them to Layton (to Justine’s). Jayden wanted to stay for longer, Val said she would bring them back. So he ended up staying. The biggest reason why I went up there was to get James, so he could have a sleep over. Well the sleep over never happened. But James was wanting to hang out with Justine for the weekend. Granted the drive was long. From Orem up to Evanston (100 miles), then down to Bountiful (Justine wanted me to drop em off there), and then finally back home in Taylorsville. I think it was 200 miles. 3 1/2 hours of driving if I remember right. Left work at 5:30pm, and didn’t get home till after 10pm. When I got back home, Glad had some coworkers over. We mainly just bullshitted, drank, and played Sorry.

We also moved the computer desk from the living room, back into the bedroom. We hope to get a kitchen table, so that’s mainly why we put the computer desk back in the bedroom. Us eating in front of the TV is getting old. Not too bad when it’s just me and Glad. But with the kids, it’s getting old. I still need to clean up that area, got shit all over the place where the computer used to be. Oh yeah, Tuesday night we had Jim come over for a bit.

Christmas 2008

Posted in Family, Movies on December 26th, 2008 by James

Christmas was pretty good all things considered. I had Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday off this week. Monday Glad was working, so it was just me and the kids. Had a pretty good mellow day with the kids which was nice. Did some little running around with the kids.

Tuesday did some more running around finished up with the photo albums/xmas gifts that me and the kids got for Justine, Becky, and Glad. My folks came over for about a hour Tuesday night.

Wednesday morning we opened up gifts since the kids would be with Justine xmas morning. I didn’t get much, but I was expecting much. I did manage to get a new hat, a 8 gig memory card for my phone, a Ramones shirt, Swingin Utters CD. We then cooked up a nice breakfast. Eggs, bacon, OJ, potatoes.

Later on I decided to be brave and went to the liquor store since we need booze for that night. Line out the door, so I hit the one in Sandy. Same thing line out the door. But it was smart the way they were doing it. They would let about 10 people in at a given time. When it started cleaning out, they let another 10 people in. Waited outside for about 5 minutes, and I was only in line for a few minutes. The ex-inlaws picked up the kids around 2 or so. We went on up to Stephine’s place for dinner, and to get drunk. We got there a little after 7pm. By 10pm Stephine was in bed drunk as a shunk. So yeah, we decided to leave and head on home.

Christmas morning me and Glad went on out to my parents for breakfast, and to hang out for a bit. Later on in the afternoon, we went on over to Glad’s aunt place for xmas dinner.

This morning woke up to about 8-10″ snow on my car, along with snow packed roads. The freeway was all snow packed all the way down to point of the mountain. Once I got past Thanksgiving point, the roads were mostly just wet. Work is boring as shit today. I hate days like these.

I did manage to watch a few movies this week with Glad. I believe it was Tuesday night we watched Death Race. Silly ass entertaining movie. Xmas we watched Hamlet 2. Well we tried to, but we never finished it. I thought it was pretty stupid, and just couldn’t finish up. Christmas day we watched Traitor. That was alright. Seems like it had some plot holes in it. I kinda wished I paid more attention to it.
