Big Ole hairy Next to Last BLOG of the Year

Yes it is once again that time of the year. When I take a little bit of time out and reflect how my year was lived by me according to what I had written in my BLOG. I do a year ending BLOG every year. I did a Goodbye 2005 for my first one. A Goodbye 2006, Goodbye 2007, Goodbye 2008, Goodbye 2009 and followed that up with a Good Bye Decade.

I think these are my favorite BLOGS to write. It lets you take a little time out and just reflect what has happened over the course of the past twelve months. I didn't do a goodbye 2004 as In wasn't a BLOGGER for that entire year, but this will be my sixth Goodbye whatever year BLOG plus the one goodbye to the Decade.

Overall it has been a great year for me. There were highs and lows, but I only really try to talk about the highs. The lows do make for some juicy gossip, but that is not why I started writing a BLOG. I didn't want a piece of my life to be used to hurt people or say nasty things.

So, I'll leave you with my Goodbye to 2010 BLOG that will publish later this morning and I'll see everyone on the other side.

Be safe tonight, have fun and have a great 2011.

Start of a Three Day Weekend

Well I guess you can almost call today my Friday. With the New Years Holiday coming up soon and tomorrow being a Holiday for both me and Michelle, I think we will call this almost a Friday.

I've started to write my favorite BLOG of the year already. That is the one where I look back through the last year of my BLOG and relive my year month by month. It is the one that takes me the most time, and it is also a time of reflection of my previous 12 months based on my BLOG.

It will be out the Day of the 31st sometime, but it won't be my normal daily blog.

Oh well, hi ho hi ho

Hump Day

Well this has been a quick week so far. One day sick, one day in and we are at Hump day looking at another weekend.

I have a future BLOG I am wanting to write, but I want to gather all my facts and have them straight before I rip a certain Medical Facility and a few Doctor's a new asshole when I speak my mind on their business practices. But that will be another blog and another day. The year is starting to wind down and I have a big year ending BLOG to be writing soon.

Hi ho hi ho

Let's try this again

I wasn't exactly feeling too good yesterday morning, so I decided to let the anti-biotics kick in a little bit before returning to work, which I am going to be doing today.

Michelle and I have both been down pretty hard with this, now it's time for me to get back to work.

Don;t forget tonight at 6:30 it's the Champs Sports Bowl when WVU takes on NC State. Let's Go Mountaineers.

Hi ho hi ho

Bronchitis

Well it's official, I've been fighting it but I have now been diagnosed with Bronchitis. I've been fighting something for about a week and a half, but went to WVU Urgent care and have been diagnosed with it. I'm now on anti-biotics and well on the road to recovery.

Christmas Day for me was a day that I was sedated with NyQuill all day and slept pretty much until Sunday Morning.

I am on the road to recovery now, so we'll see how I feel to decide if it is hi ho hi ho  today.

Under the Weather

I have been fighting this bug about a week and a half now, it gets better it gets worse and I think I am fianlly at the point where I am going to seek medical attention about it today.

Michelle did last week, I thought I was getting better and had it put me down Christmas Eve and all day yesterday. I've had so much Nyquil and Hall's Cough drops in my system that maybe it is time to seek a professional opinion before this gets any worse.

The Steelers are off today after winning Thursday Night, so maybe I need to get some anti-biotics in me before returning to work.

Christmas Eve

OK, if you haven't finished your Christmas Shopping yet this is your last chance. Today is Christmas Eve and I imagine by later this afternoon all stores will be closed for the Holidays.

Santa Claus has already started his Journey, NORAD is currently tracking where he is at on their Santa Tracker. They track Jolly Ole Saint Nick's Journey around this rock. We are not tracking him at our National Lab, but another DOE lab, Los Alamos will also be keeping track of Santa and making sure he is on schedule.

I hope everyone has a safe and Happy Holiday. Michelle and I will be celebrating Christmas Eve from the comfort of our home with her kids. We celebrated here last year, but this will be the first time that all of us are together on Christmas Eve. Two years ago I still lived at Brunswick and last year Chad was living in South park and did not make it over Christmas Eve.

Tree's up, the stocking are hung and the Hot Sausage is not to far off from hitting the crock pot and my camera is ready.

Merry Christmas.

Big Ole Hairy Thursday for Me

Today is my last day to work this week, we will be off tomorrow for the Christmas Holiday, so today will be the last day to work for this week. It'll be a nice three day Christmas weekend for me and Michelle.

Michelle has been under the weather, she went to the Doctor's yesterday and found out she has strep and the start of bronchiolitis. We've both been fighting it for over a week, yesterday morning however she was royally sick. They have her on anti-biotics and hopefully she can get back into the swing of things today.

I hope everyone has a great day, but for me it is hi ho hi ho

Hump Day

We had my Company Christmas Dinner last night at Oliverios here in Morgantown, this was the second straight year working for Sextant that we have had there. We did it on a Tuesday Night this year and we ended up getting the deck reserved to ourselves, I think we were scheduled to have 30 people there and that is about how many we had.

Today however is a new day filled with new challenges and another fun filled day of being in the office. Actually that wasn't sarcasm as I honestly do love my job and what I do. It gives you a rewarding feeling and a feeling like you have somehow made a difference, or at least helped influence that difference in this world. I really do consider it an honor.

That being said, it's Hump Day Plus for me. I'm off Friday and will have a three day weekend.

Hi ho hi ho

Tuesday's Tidbits

* Well Monday is now once again behind us, we are well on our way to Tuesday and I can't think of a better reason that that to do a tidbits.

* Both Michelle and I are still under the weather. We've both been fighting this on and off for about a week now, I think we are both ready for this damn flu bug to be over with and have it behind us.

* It's going to be a long day today. Starting with work, and culminating with my companies Christmas Dinner this evening at Oliverios. Dale treats his employees right is all I have to say. I am one lucky guy to be working at the best job I have ever had or been offered in my life.

* It has been 1,012 days since mine and Michelle's first date.

* It's been 235 days since our engagement.

* It's only four days till Christmas, and only a few shopping days left. I'm done shopping with the exception of a few stocking stuffers that we are going to put out.

* I don't know if I have ever mentioned this, but I hate snow. Not just a little bit, I mean I really hate snow with a passion. Let's get Christmas in and get to spring.

* For you science buffs and if you are reading this early in the AM> We are at a full Lunar Eclipse as we start the first day of Winter.

* Hi ho hi ho and I still hate snow.

Back at It

All good things must come to an end, and in this case it is the end of yet another weekend and a time to put our noses back on the grindstone for yet another week of work. It will be a short week for me, as I will be off Friday, however Michelle will be off for the Holiday on Monday.

We did get a lot accomplished this weekend, obviously we did our Christmas baking. Still have a boatload of supplies that are unopened, but we will use them some time or another. We were both a little under the weather yesterday and neither one of us felt like doing much of anything other than resting.

I do officially have my Christmas shopping completed. There is still some wrapping to go, actually a good bit of wrapping to go, but we have a good head start on that already. I finished up yesterday with the last of my regular Christmas shopping. I may still do some stocking stuffer stuff for the stockings, but I am done for the most part.

This week will be doing our final things to get ready for Christmas. Michelle has some shopping to do, we have my Company Christmas Party Tuesday and of course this weekend is Christmas.

Hi ho hi ho

Friends and Cookies 2010

It was a day of fun and cookie making for 2010. Trish and Arron were supposed to come over and give us a hand, but we also got another very big surprise as one of Michelle's closest friends who lived in New York for a few years, moved to Maryland and came and visited us on our Cookie Day 2010.

Paul and Lynn, two of Michelle's very close friends who she used to go to New York to visit, recently moved to LaVale Maryland and stopped by for a visit yesterday and partake in our cookie baking day 2010.

It was nice to visit with them, and Trish and get some assistance in making our 2010 Holiday Cookies. I know my favorite ones are the Butterscotch cookies.

Cookie Day 2010

Woo Hoo, it's Christmas Cookie making day 2010!!!!

Michelle and I went to Sams last night and stocked up on what we need to make quite a few cookies today. I think we bought enough stuff to make a bazillion cookies, which is a good thing because I like cookies a heck of a lot more than I like snow.

Michelle makes some awesome cookies, stop over and try a few.

=)

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

I have to say this is one weekend that could not get here quick enough. The weather has been absolutely atrocious around the Morgantown area, so much as they shut down the DOE yesterday at 1:00 due to inclimate weather. I left and worked the afternoon from home to avoid the headaches and traffic jams that were about to happen yesterday afternoon.

I still have a touch of the flu bug believe it or not, had a little relapse yesterday evening, hopefully that is the end of this thing. We have cookies to bake tomorrow!!!!

Hi ho hi ho

A Sick Day All Around

Wow yesterday morning was a unique one. Both Michelle and I were under the weather, we must have both been bitten by the bug. It was in my chest and her sinuses were clogged up.

We both decided to take a midweek break from the grindstone and take a day to medicate, sleep and relax so that we can finish out the week strong and make it to the weekend. We have plans to do some Christmas Baking this weekend.

Other than that, yesterday was just that, a sick day of rest and relaxation.

Today however....hi ho hi ho

Hump Day

Two days down, three to go and today is up over that hump day.

I can't believe this weather as of late, talk about cold as heck, it has been just that. I think the Penguins are even starting fires to warm up around these parts. Temps in the low teens and a decent wind had made the wind chill factor, well freaking cold.

WVU football has a new Offensive Coordinator and 2012 head coach, Dana Holgorsen has been hired as the OC and Coach in Waiting. I have to say I think he will be a nice addition to our staff.

I also have to say, Oliver Luck needs to be fired. This University is better than the back door behind the back dealings that our former coach used to do. You were hired to make sure that this University maintained the integrity we had established with Coach Stewart. Your back stabbing and down right despicable way of handling this. You need to be shown the door, you disgust me and need to be shown the door. Bill Stewart does not deserve to be treated like this you worthless sack of shit. Take your ass back to Texas.

Tuesday's Tidbits

* Monday is behind us and we are looking straight at Tuesday. I can't think of a better reason to do a tidbits than that.

* It has been 1,005 days since Michelle and I had our first date. We're finally into quadruple digits and I count my blessings every day that she came into my life.

* Day 228 since the engagement.

* Now the really important one, 11 shopping days left until Christmas. Mine is most of the way done, we're just in the home stretch with cookie making on the horizon.

* Fantasy Football was good and bad for me this past week. I had the absolute worst week points wise that I have ever had since I started playing Fantasy Football. This was an important week, if I won I locked myself into the playoffs and into the prize money. If I lost and had a good showing I had enough points where I would have went into a tie breaker for the last playoff spot and probably would have won. Worst case scenario happened, I lost and didn't score any points. HOWEVER, the guy who beat me for the Big money a couple years ago was the guy I would have tied with and I really thought he was going to win this week. Thank You Michael Toth for having your best week of the year and putting me in the Money!!!!!

* Have I ever mentioned that I HATE SNOW?

Back Home, Weekend's over

Yesterday was a day of traveling to see Michelle's family in Ohio. It started as a day at her Grandmothers and culminated with a trip to see her Father and a return trip back to good ole Morgantown.

Today we take our noses and stick them back on that dreaded old grindstone for yet another week as we take the past few days we referred to as the weekend and place them into our memories.

I hope everyone had a great weekend, I know we did. We have one more weekend left before Christmas and there's gonna be a whole lot of baking going on next weekend. Our time set aside to make Christmas cookies.

First though, we have to get through the next five days, so hi ho hi ho

East Liverpool Ohio Bound

Today is the day Michelle's family back ion Ohio celebrate their Christmas. Festivities take place at her Maternal Grandmothers (GiGi) and usually culminate with us stopping by and spending some time with her Dad before we head south for the end of the days festivities.

This will be my third Christmas at her Grandmothers and they are always a blast. Food is plentiful and there are even some fun games of Bingo with some nice prizes that are on the yearly agenda.

We did get about 90% of our Christmas shopping done yesterday. To say that I found some VERY good deals at Tanger is an understatement. Lancome, Columbia, the Kitchen Stores, deals were all over the place. It was a wise decision to do our Christmas Shopping yesterday at that location.

I did get to eat at a Red Robin yesterday. Wow could we really use one of these in Morgantown. Michelle had eaten at one previously, and this was my first venture into one. I'll say it ranks up their with my favorite restaurants. YUMMMMMM

Have a good day.

Christmas Shopping

I got a real good start on my seasons Christmas Shopping yesterday evening after work. Michelle and I went out for our Friday Pizza complimented with a trip to Sam's Club for some vitals and a trip to the land of Christmas Gifts for a few lucky boys and girls.

Today, we get serious about our Christmas Shopping. We're heading out to Tanger Outlet in Washington PA and going into full head shopping mode. It'll be an early start for Michelle, Hayley and myself.

It's going to be a very busy weekend for us, which will also include heading to East Liverpool, Ohio on Sunday for Michelle's family Christmas with her family back home.

It's going to be a busy weekend.

Friday, December 10, 2010

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

Well High School Football season is almost over with, this years AAA game that had to go to the State Supreme Court to be ruled on will finally take place this Saturday evening. Good luck to the kids of Martinsburg and Brooke as they both seek to win the 2010 State Title.

Looking at mine Michelle's schedule, last weekend we cleaned carpets and put up our beautiful Christmas Tree. On this weekend's agenda, shopping and traveling. We're heading up to Tanger Outlets tomorrow to do our Christmas Shopping. Hopefully we can find some really nice deals =)

Sunday we're traveling to East Liverpool for Michelle's family Christmas. We'll visit her grandmother and stop by and see her Dad before we head back to Morgantown Sunday Night.

To say that it is going to be another busy weekend for us is an understatement. Next weekend is my company Christmas Party and all of our Holiday Baking.

1,000 Days Ago

March 15, 2008. One Thousand magical days ago my life was changed forever for the better. I had no idea what was going to happen, I had just been going out with an old friend that things just really didn't work out with dating. Great person and a very long time friend, but lives were just a little too different.

I was on MySpace a couple of days earlier and I had became friends with someone I had seen for the first time in years at Christmas time. I uttered those magical words "BTW, I Think I'm Single" and the rest was history.

1,000 days ago I picked Michelle up and took her out to dinner, at Pizza Hut and we went to see a movie. 10,000 BC (just wait another 9,000 days =)) was the movie we went to see, the movie to be honest with you was well, lousy. If you have never seen it, don't waste your time.

However that was mine and Michelle's first date and our first Kiss. 1,000 days ago today. The day my life changed forever.

Michelle, all I can say is Thank You and I Love You. Thank you for saving me from the prison of solitude that I had imprisoned myself in.

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

Humpday

Just went to see my Doctor yesterday, of course he advised me to lay off the extra snacks, but all my blood work came back pretty good and I feel good. I'll go back again in three months, we're going to see if we can reduce or eliminate some of the meds or have to move forward.

On the football front, the University of Pittsburgh has fired their coach Dave "the Stache" Wannstadt. Maybe the WVU coaches can start taking a harder look at the Pitt recruits and see if any of them would be willing to change their commitment now that Wannstadt is no longer coaching there. He was a very notable recruiter, just so so in his coaching....except for the one time it really mattered, December 1, 2007.

Speaking of December 1, 2007, guess whose name has popped up as a possible replacement to the Stache. None other that Rich Fraudriguez. Seems his coaching days in Ann Arbor Michigan may be numbered and some Pitt people have tossed his name around. I guess we'll just have to wait and see, you know how rumors go.

Oh well, hi ho hi ho

Tuesday's Tidbits

* Well Monday is once again behind us and we are at Tuesday, I can;t think of a better reason to do a tidbits.

* It's been 998 days since Michelle and I had our first date for those of you still counting. I guess we are a couple of days from a monumental event for us.

* By that count, it has been 221 days since I proposed to Michelle.

* And for those of you who are really paying attention, we have only 18 shopping days left until Christmas.

* I don't know if I have ever mentioned this on this BLOG, but I hate snow. I can't stand the slippery and cold white stuff that falls and lands on the ground. Give me the warm weather and longer days. (I type this as I am getting ready to watch Jack Frost on ABC family. Go Figure.

* How does everyone like the new Facebook? I think I like the new one and I am not one who really likes to see things change, but this is one that I don't really mind.

Monday, December 06, 2010

Back To Work

Another weekend of enjoyment has come and gone, our objective this weekend was to get our Christmas tree up in addition to all of the other things that we do. We started Saturday Morning and went and got the tree, but were a little sidetracked from shampooing the carpets, grocery shopping as well as watching the Mountaineers, making fresh home made from scratch (our first attempt) bread, we finally got the tree up and decorated.

I do have to say it has been a very busy weekend, and we really got a lot accomplished. Michelle was an absolute trooper and an inspiration. I'm not sure what this household would be like without her. I am a very lucky man to say the very least.

Now it's time to stick our noses back on the grindstone and get back to that thing we call work until we reach another weekend. Only next weekend will be filled with travel. Either with Christmas Shopping on Saturday or traveling back to Ohio to celebrate Christmas with Michelle's family, it will be a weekend full of traveling.

West Virginia will be playing in the Champs Sports Bowl on December 28th against North Carolina State. It was believed if WVU got the BCS Bowl, or possibly evein if we didn't that Notre Dame would take the Big East's spot in the Champs Sports Bowl. They are allowed to do it once every four years. Because we are the best bowl traveling team in the Big East, we got the bid.

Until then, hi ho hi ho

Christmas Tree Part Two

Yesterday we went and bought our 2010 Christmas Tree. Once again it is a very robust live tree. It has been trimmed and set up and sitting where it is going to sit, today we are going to decorate the tree and put lights on it.

We intended on putting it up yesterday, but we decided the carpets where the tree was going to go up needed shampooed. Which turned into us getting an industrial carpet shampooer and doing the carpets.

We had talked about doing it before Christmas, but with traveling next weekend and the following weekend set aside for baking, this turned into the weekend that we shampooed carpets.

Today all the fun stuff happens as all the furniture has been moved and the tree is already set up and in place. Might even build a fire in the fireplace this afternoon as we do this.

Have a great and fun filled day.

Saturday, December 04, 2010

Maybe a Special Day

This could be a special day with all that may potentially happen. I say potentially because Michelle has been under the weather and actually came home from work early yesterday feeling sick, so this mornings plans may depend upon her health.

Potentially on the agenda this morning. CHRISTMAS TREE!!!! This is the day we have set aside to go and get our tree tree this year. Last year we went to Southern States and I'm pretty sure that is where we are going to be going once again this season health permitting.

Today is Senior Send Off day for the Seniors on the Mountaineer Football team. I think back to my first BLOG ever about Noel Devine and am Happy and sad. Sad that this is the last time he will ever play in Mountianeer Field and Happy that he chose and stayed at West Virginia. If the Mountaineers win today, they win at least a share of the Big East Championship.

If this happens tune into ESPN2 tonight at 8:00 as I am sure every Mountaineer fan will be doing. I'll make it simple, if South Florida beats UCONN, we play as the Big East Representative in the BCS Bowl. If UCONN wins, they are the Big East Representative.

Let's Go Mountaineers.

Happy Birthday Kim SanJulian

I would like to take this opportunity to wish my Sister Kim a very Happy Birthday. Her's is one of the easiest for me to remember, as it is only just a few short days after the anniversary of my birthday =)

Anyways if you see Kim today, Make sure you take a little bit of time out to wish her the Happiest of Birthdays.

Big Ole Hairy Friday

Yes it is once again that time of the week that we all look foreword to, when we can take time to cease the labors for the week and take a little bit of needed time out to enjoy the fruits of those labors. It is once again the dawn of another weekend and a Big Ole Hairy Friday.

Well the High School Footballs play offs will finish this weekend with the A and AA Championship games. The AAA game has been suspended pending this legal mess culmination that South Charleston and the judge they have in their back pocket are trying to pull off. They should impeach her for stepping where the State Supreme Court had previously ruled that it was out of her jurisdiction.

I think Michelle and I are going to get our Christmas Tree this weekend. We have the next four or five weekends planned out and this is the one we have set to make the homestead look all christmassy. So we are going to go and get our live tree tomorrow morning and decorate.

I'm ready for a weekend, could be an exciting one if the Mountaineers win tomorrow and UCONN would happen to lose to South Florida tomorrow night.

Have I ever said I Hate Snow

Ok, I don;t care how pretty it is or what it looks like for that matter, I just want to officially go on record to say that I hate snow. Give me a 1/4 dusting on Christmas Eve but stay off the roads and melt away after Christmas and I would be perfectly happy.

I'm more of a spring and summer kind of guy, a get outside and do something not a sit around and watch TV because it's cold and dark out. Give me the warm summer rays, some softball games and long days where you have a few hours of nice daylight after you get off of work.

I guess I'll have to suck it up and deal with this winter stuff, but I want to officially go on record and say that

I HATE SNOW

Hi ho hi ho

Happy Birthday Ed


Today is Ed's birthday, now I am not going to say how old he is, since he doesn't want to celebrate birthday's, but judging by the photo that I have added you can figure it out. So give him a shout out today and wish him a good one. Happy Birthday Honey, thanks for allowing me to share another one with you. I love you and hope you have a great day.

Hump Day

Well that is two days for the week that are done and over with, we are now in the middle of the week and looking to make it up over the hump for the week.

I have to say that there was a ruling yesterday by Kanawha County Circuit Judge Carrie Webster that just has me completely disgusted. It all started a couple of weeks ago in the State HS Playoff game between South Charleston and Hurricane and ends up with a judge overstepping her bounds to rule on participation ion a High School Football game. Because of her ruling, the state AAA Championship game has been suspended. I'm absolutley dusgusted by this ruling that started off with this.



When police and pepper spray have to enter the field of play to break up a brawl, someone needs to be suspended and that is exactly what the WVSSAC ruled. However this idiot judge took it upon herself to change the rules of the governing body and ignore testimony by officials in charge of the game.

This is a can of worms that will only hurt the kids affected. They should disbar this judge.

Oh well, rant over.
