Here’s my once every 6 month post :P

Anyway, I figured it’s been quite some time since I actually posted something on here. I’ve pretty much dropped off the map on the net. I haven’t really chatted at all in I can’t remember how long.
Well, I’ve been monstrously busy at work. We just bought out a smoke shop in Taylorsville, and are in the process of opening a fifth store in Lehi. I’m in the process of compiling the list of equipment needed to assemble a POS system for the stores. It will be great to have some actual inventory tracking ability, not to mention it should look pretty good on a resume.
Also have been massively working on the yard. Tilling the crap out of the app. 1/2 an acre of ground we have to get it ready for a sprinkler system and some nice landscaping. I’ve gotten all the fence posts installed in the ground for the chain link fence in the kids play area. I will be starting to cut poles to proper height here in the next few days, and should hopefully be ready to start pulling the fence sometime next week. It will be nice to have another project out of the way (even though this house is one nonstop project).
We were planning a trip to Disneyland but unfortunately Tennille’s oldest MerSadie broke her arm on Friday. So we are postponing our trip until she gets healed. We’re thinking of going during October so that we can check out the Nightmare Before Christmas themed Haunted Holiday. I’ve been wanting to check it out for sometime anyway, and that’s as good an excuse as any.
Well once again I’m out of words, until next time my brain decides to vomit.


So once again here I am posting on my Live Journal. Something I never do. There is like this remote possibility that maybe some of you freaks out there are actually interested in reading what goes on inside of my screwed up mind.

Anyway, I’m still here with Tennille, doubt that’s going to change. I’m actually more comfortable with things in my life than I think I have ever been. I am still adjusting to helping take care of kids, but I don’t think that I will ever get used to that.
Unfortunately it seems that sometimes things in life require some readjustment on other levels. I don’t really see many of my friends too much anymore, apparently my house is too far to come to for a visit. Honestly though, I’m not really that concerned about it though, I don’t really have much time to just ‘be’ with 4 kids around, having people over regularly would probably start to drive me nuts. Mark, Sue, Joe and Fitt still make it over at least once a week to game though, which is way cool. My cousin Brandon doesn’t live too far away either, and occasionally makes it over for a game of pool. I’ve actually found myself slipping pretty well into ‘hermit’ mode where I don’t get out too much, but I’m not unhappy with that. Tennille and I seem to be on about the same level of needing ‘escape’ and go clubbing or hit a movie when we are getting a little stir crazy.

Anyway, I’m pretty tired from a day out with the munchkins and I think I’m going to kick back and watch a movie with my sweetie.

Slan Agat!

bitch and moan

Apparently I don’t update this enough I am told.
Does this really come as a surprise, I doubt it.

Anyway life has gotten crazy but good all at the same time. After my friend Brad passed away things got incredibly crazy, the whole Rushton residence was just a total state of chaos. I’ve been over here every day since, helping out with the kids and assisting Tennille with retaining her sanity. Through all of the trials that have come from all of this, Tennille and I have gotten rather close.
I actually feel more comfortable and content in my current state than I have felt in a very long time. It has been strange kind of acting as dad to four kids. Especially considering I was not really planning on having any of my own for a while, if ever. However, they have gotten a pretty good grip on me, and make me feel at home.

I am also finally about to start my new job as Store Manager for the Spanish Fork Stogies. We will be opening our doors for business on the 7th of July. I won’t be stressing about my money anymore and will finally have a handle on my debt. If you live in Utah, listen to the new 105.7 alternative station, we are running ads on there. We will be having a big grand opening on the 31st of July with giveaways and everything.

Well, I’m not feeling especially ranty, so hopefully that will make everyone feel better that wanted to know what’s going on.


So I’m sort of sitting here in a mild state of panic right now. It feels like my lung is collapsing again, but I’m not totally sure. I’ve gone through this a few times before and it ended up being nothing, but it still doesn’t stop me from freaking out. I really don’t want to go through all that hell again. Not to mention the fact that I have no insurance right now. This thing would have bankrupted my family the first time it happened if it weren’t for our insurance. If I have to go to the hospital over it this time, it will be much worse. They already told me that they would have to do invasive surgery if it got bad a second time. Which has got to be damn expensive, and since I have no insurance that isn’t really helping me to be calm.
I’m trying to just be calm, because it will just be worse if I hyperventilate myself. I’m really not too sure what to do, if it gets bad enough I’m going to have to go to the hospital, but I don’t know how I’ll afford it.
Anyway, I hope that it’s just going to go away, I’m going to try and lay down to see if I can sleep it away.
