Yeah, I got a little sun today on an unplanned day off...left the keys to my work truck in the wife's car last night...she left for work this morning while I was in the shower...didnt remember my keys were in her car until I walked out the door to leave...door locked behind me ;Bored (house key in her car too), luckily enough, I always carry my Harley keys with me...however, bike has not been cranked since April...yep you guessed it...battery was dead ;Muted;Muted;Muted....dug through my storage room(never locked) got my "trickle charger" out for the bike...sat on back porch until bike would crank up...luckily eneough I had R2R and a Monster Kona Coffee to keep me company. Once I got the bike started...drove the hour and 15 minutes to school wife works at, got truck keys (and house key) started journey home...on interstate for 15 minutes...heavy downpour of rain starts...nothing but sun when I left the house...see where this is going yet?;Bored...sat on side of road until rain let up...finally get home at13:30ish...decided not worth driving another 1.5 hours to go to work, just to only work for 1.5 hours...so I fixed a drink and sat my A $ $ on the couch and stared at the fish tank...and thats where I am now :p


PS... @NY_Caveman should be proud I slipped that foot pic in there
I'm sorry for the snowball of events, and your sunburn, however, I see your nail polish on the table. Did you have time to do your nails? Lol

Whoohoo congrats on the baby boy!!
Thank you!!! We are SOOOO EXCITED!!!!
Welcome to the Dad club and congrats! It’s about the best feeling I’ve ever had once the terror wore off ;)
You guys got will be great. funny how fast you go from first time holding em feeling like holy moly I’m gonna break em to balancing three baby bags the kid and a 6 pack headin down three flights of stairs. Without a care at a jog
Whoooaaaa here fella, 3 baby bags?!?!? That's more bags than I take on a week long trip. No way my kids having more luggage than me for a daily excursion;Bored

Congratulations... honestly, I was looking for the revealing post...wasn't until I read @fishguy242 's post that I realized you typed everything in blue and that was the reveal ;Facepalm
;Hilarious;Hilarious;Hilarious;Hilarious I figured I'd catch someone off guard, didn't think it would be you but I'll take it.

Being the mom of all boys is the bestest! congratulations!
All boys???? Now that sounds like a handful and a half!! Thank you!!!

You are about to embark on the coolest, scariest, most wonderful stressfest you can imagine! Google Mighty Machines. Video series made in Canada. Hours of boy enjoyment!
Probably the best description I've ever heard of how I feel about our near future right now. Mighty Machines?? I remember watching that when I was younger lol! Definitely hours of enjoyment, I guess I have a slight advantage as I'm basically a giant child, Fish tank, Train layout, Lego techniques and I work at a railway. We can share toys and I'll have a new excuse to by new ones ;Smuggrin

I like to paint my toenails in the summer so they look pretty in my flip flops ;Smuggrin
I KNEW IT!

And in Tank news, currently waiting for a couple gallons of flex seal to finish painting the walls surrounding the sump stand and the stand itself, estimated delivery... September 20th ;Bored:( Man it sucks shipping anything these days. Should have had @Scratch08 pick it up and mail it, would have been much faster. Although, the box would more than likely be filled with a side of mosquitos so I'd have to wait a week or two to open that anyway...

My son was born Jan 3rd of this year. He loves the fish tank, tries to grab everything through the glass. Now he’s nearly walking and my life consists of “don’t climb the stairs, step stool, dog, dishwasher...” he knocked over my bowl of frozen fish food a couple days ago so that was awesome to clean out of the carpet shampooer.

Just a few of the weirdest things I have said as a mom.

Really wish he understood the whole “it’s hot & will burn your mouth if you eat it right now” thing. He’s famished from the moment he wakes up till the moment he crashes. 22lbs, so doesn’t miss any meals.

I can do that if needed...would be there maybe a week earlier than your projected arrival... I would never send mosquitoes to you like that, they'd get squished by the paint cans :p

”oh my gawd, WHERE IS THE BABY?!”
That is my favorite game, next to “oh no I super glued a frag to the baby!” I Just gave her a snorkel and she figured it out ;Hilarious
