Good morning world!! Life never seems to be dull around here. It seems like the “fun” never stops. I’ve been extremely busy as of late because I recently started my final course of my Master’s degree. For me education seemed to be the only thing to keep me motivated and invested in work for the last couple of years. I have found structure and quite frankly keeping busy helps me fight my issues with PTSD. There is no time for me to stop and think about myself. That being said, I’m happy to say that I had a great evening with my family last night. Nothing special, just sat around the house. Seeing their smiling faces just brightens my world. I stress sometimes if I’m doing the right things for them. I want to make sure they have everything they need to be happy and successful. They don’t care for the most part as long as they get what they want, lol.
I planned on spending my Friday night on Dabbin Dad, but I was more than happy to spend the evening with my girls. Nothing crazy, we just hung out around the house. My wife and I got sometime to go on a day-date, while the kids were in school. Bath-time is the best, they love it and it means that they are almost ready for bed. It was around 9pm, when my oldest daughter’s head hit the pillow. I really don’t remember it, because that was the same time I got into bed and I passed right the heck out! I rolled over to check the time, around 1am, quickly said screw it and rolled back over. Now its 530am and I am awake.
The house is quiet! Won’t be long though before the sounds of little feet stomping like a herd of elephants is heard throughout the house. I’m happy I don’t drink alcohol regularly. All kidding aside, I really enjoy spending time with family. It’s time to start the daily routine. It’s funny how that means different things now. In the Marines that meant I would be getting up to workout or “PT”, now it means I grab my coffee, a little medicine, and a computer. HA!
Family is first with me! I have done some things in the past that I’m not overly proud of, but none of that matters now that I have people I want to watch over and keep safe. All of my other worries are second. My family is the only thing that I’m truly blessed to have in my life. I can always make money some how. I could live as a hermit! But my family is what keeps me going, they are the ones that I get to look at and think about when I’m at my worse. I love them! It’s time to medicate, before they all start getting up. Peace!!!
