Awesome Turkey Day Week…

Posted in Family, Friends on November 27th, 2008 by James

Wowzers. 4 days off this week from work.

Monday I got off about 1 1/2hrs early from work. It was so slow, and I just wanted to get out of work and start on my weekend.

Tuesday nothing really much from what I remember. Me and Glad went to Taco Bell for lunch/breakfast. We then meet up with Ben and Val. Went to the pet store, then we went to go feed the ducks. I ended up taking pictures from that. I may upload the pictures up to the website. I’m not fully sure.

Wednesday we went on up to Evanston to go meet up with the ex-inlaws and do some shooting. Had a grand ol time doing that. I took up my dad’s shotgun, and his .22 rifle. Dean brought his 9mm handgun, and his 4 wheeler. We were up in Evanston from about 10:30am till about 5:00pm. James shot the shotgun for the first time. He was pretty scared and nervous at first. Got him shooting some skeet. Needless to say, he had some beginners luck. He took down about 4 out of 5. Glad did pretty good at it also. Both James, and Glad really enjoyed shooting the shotgun. Val shot the shotgun for the first time also, and she really enjoyed it also. Here are the pictures from the trip. This picture here is just priceless. I think I did a great at snapping right at the right moment. It was taken right when James shot the shotgun for the first time. The look on his face is just great.

When we got back into town, I dropped the kids off in Magna with my parents. Me and Glad went on down to Bar Deluxe to see a few bands. It was great running into such old faces/friends that I don’t see very often.

Today for Thanksgiving we went on over to Grandma’s for a few hours. Had a damn good dinner/lunch. James cut his first turkey, and got a kick out of it. Later on we went on over to Glad’s grandma for more food. Needless to say, we were so stuffed we had issues with eating more food. Since we were up in the area, we stopped by Ben’s and Val’s place for about an hour.

Tomorrow I have another day off, and plan on spending some time with Jim.

Wow!!! Where the hell do I even begin in explaining my past week?

So Sunday I left work a few hours later, I wasn’t feeling the greatest. Big ol long story short, Justine stayed over Sunday night. She had some serious issues with her GF. We stayed awake till about 2am talking and bullshitting. Didn’t fully fall asleep till about 3am. Then up at 6am cause of more issues. Needless to say, I called into work sick/late. Needed to catch up on some zzzzzz, and try to help Justine out as much as possible.

Crazy I tell you. Used to work with him about 10 years ago out at Packard Bell. He left shortly after he was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Got into work this morning and saw this on KSL about him. Such a great awesome guy.

Last Night BBQ

Posted in Friends on August 31st, 2008 by James

Last night we had a BBQ. Had Nick, his two brothers, and his son over. Cooked up some fake veggie burgers, along with some pork chops. They were only over for about 2 hours. Glad’s friend was suppose to come over, but that never happened. Either way, it was nice evening.

I’ve also put some pictures from the Vegas trip that me and Glad took back in May. You can find them at the new gallery ( I plan on shifting my pictures around, and getting rid of some of the old ones. I’ve been wanting to do this for the past 9 months. Just started on it today.

Woah I’m Slacking….

Posted in Friends, General on August 15th, 2008 by James

Wow! 2 weeks without a single post. Slacking indeed. GBH was an alright show. But I must say, that the Avalon just sucks. I really hate that place. I don’t think I’m ever going there again. Which I hate to say, since Lower Class Brats is playing in a few weeks there. I would love to see LCB again, but fuck that place. Oh well, I’ve seen LCB enough times anyway.

The highlight of this week was seeing Sandy. She came up from AZ for a week. Meet up her and Carrie at Burts last Friday. That was a good drunken time. Those two got a chance to meet Glad. Negative Charge was playing at Burts, which was a double bonus. Monday night, Jim came over along with Sandy. Hung out for a few hours just smoking, drinking, and bullshitting. Tuesday night we all BBQ. Jim, Sandy, Carrie, the Kids, and Glad. That was a good time just catching up, joking, bullshitting, etc. Wednesday night, me and Sandy went to Club Vegas. That was okay, it was nice getting out. Tragic Black was playing, it wasn’t anything special. It was just okay.

It’s amazing at how good the kids have behaved over the past week. I don’t think they fought at all over the past week. Just a big surprise compared to a month ago.

Work has been going really good. I’ve been busting ass. Which is amazing to consider there for awhile I could get motivated to do much of anything.

Jason Up From Portland…

Posted in Friends on July 6th, 2008 by James

Yesterday morning I got a nice surprise to hear that Jason was town for the weekend. He ended up coming over for a bit to check out the new apartment. Me, Glad, and Him then went to his buddies pool hall. We play pool for about an hour. Only hung out for about 2 hours. But it was better then nothing. Makes me wanna take another trip on up to Portland.

Busy Week….

Posted in Family, Friends, General on June 27th, 2008 by James

Oh boy, what a busy week it has been. Between fixing the broken washer, to taking the kids up to Evanston, and everything inbetween.

Ripped apart the washer Monday night, and turns out there was a small leak in the pump. New pump 50 bucks. Threw some JB Weld over the hole, and that appears to have fixed the leak. The next snag was putting the washer back together. That was a bit tricky, me and Glad sorta got it back together. But the washer was very unbalanced. Needless to say, it was useable, but very loud.

Tuesday when Ben got off work, he help me throw out the extra dryer since we didn’t need it. Didn’t have anywhere to store it. Me and Ben ended up cutting Jayden a mohawk. Glad bleeched, and dyed it blue. It looks damn good on him. Tuesday night, I went out with Amy, her cousin, and one of her friends from Price. That was nice, haven’t seen her for about 9-12 months.

Wednesday, I can’t even think about happened. I do know that Jim came over in the evening to help me look at the washer. Glad started at Club Vegas. Currently she is working the door two nights a week.

Thursday, Jayden had a doctors appointment in the morning. Glad had a doc appointment also in the afternoon. After all the stupid running around, we took the kiddies on up to Evanston, had dinner, and hung out for a bit.

Those three days just flew by. Not sure what happened to my days off. I hope this next week, to get some camping and fishing.

Fuck Me Stupid!!!!

Posted in Friends, Work on January 5th, 2008 by James

Yup, that’s what work has done to me today, not in a good way. Between lack of sleep, and just a busy day at work. I’m very glad that it’s almost overwith. Did manage to drive in the awesome snow storm this morning on my way into work.

Last night was alright. Picked up Glad, ran to Taco Bell (i was staving). Then on out to Magna to pick up my paycheck. Back to her place to grab Oldboy, and some drinks. Went up to Jim’s place to watch movies. Nothing too exciting, but it was nice seeing Glad and catching up. Haven’t seen her since we all went out Wendover back around Aug/Sept. But holy shit, I never knew Glad was such an indepth person. I ended up calling her my shrink by the end of the night.

Never did make it out to Tracy’s to talk to her last night. Plan on doing that tonight, or tomorrow. Figured out what is going on between us, if anything at all. I may just head home and crash for the night. So tired and drained from work today. So we’ll see what happens. Jim is wanting to work more on his basement also.

Saturday=No Fun!!!

Posted in Friends, General, Work on December 30th, 2007 by James

Okay it had it’s good moment. Started off alright, then it got shitty, but it ended on a very good note.

Woke up early and went on out to Magna to grab my brother and the truck. Went back to the apartment to grab a truck load of shit and unloaded it. Dropped Ben off back at his place. Then processed to head back to the apartment to start on the bullshit. Started on the whole cleaning thing back at the apartment. Which just sucks. The stove I don’t think has been cleaned in 2+ years. Shower was a mess, laundry room is a WRECK, etc etc. There was drama with Justine during this process. Justine and Anna showed up for a bit to get some of their stuff, and the tension was in the air. It looks could kill, it would have been a nuclear bomb drop on that place. hahahaha. Marcia showed up for a bit to help me, which was mainly going to Starbucks. As we were pulling into the parking lot, Justine and Anna were behind us. Marcia high tailed it out of there. Still don’t know why, I guess not to add any more tension to the situation.

Christmas 2007

Posted in Family, Friends on December 26th, 2007 by James

Christmas this year was much better then how I was affraid that it was gonna turn out. With everything going on with Justine and what not. I was perparing for the worse. Thanks to my great family, it turned out to be pretty damn good Christmas. Xmas Eve I left work early, then ran on up to SLC. Picked up Tracy, and the good times began. She got me the new Cock Sparrer CD for Xmas. (I really enjoy the album) We played some pool at the Ritz, and then ran to Taco Bell for some food. Did some other running, Tracy was awesome enough to ride with me up to North SLC to pick up the kiddies. Dropped her off, then ran on out to Magna. Stayed the night there in Magna with the fam. It was nice having my brothers, the kiddies, the sister in law all there. Ate a mighty fine yummy meal. Sat around played games with the family. As we were playing DDR, Santa made a surprise visit. The kids got Guitar Hero 2 from Santa. So after Santa left, we all just sat around playing Guitar Hero. Me and Jacob were up till 1:30am xmas eve playing Guitar Hero. I think we got mom addicted to Guitar Hero. It was pretty funny I thought.
