My name is Ron, I am a Christmas nut always have been always will be. I am first and foremost a stay at home dad that has an evening job at a retail/grocery establishment. After my second son was born I stepped down from my management position, so my wife and I don't have to pay for daycare. My wife is a teacher in the town we live, so people recognize us everywhere in our little town.
My wife and I have been married for 9 years. We have 2 boys aged 6 and 3, both are young Christmas nuts.

I have loved Christmas as long as I remember
from seeing the lights on all the houses, to seeing if I could stay awake to see Santa.
Christmas has been the one constant in my life it has always been there for me, through the rough times of my parents divorce when I was 10 y/o or my mother's passing when I was 16.
Everyone always tried to make it something special for myself and sister when we were young no matter what was going on. I now believe that is why I love this time of year more than any other because of the efforts of my family to hold it above any other time of year. I get to make the season special for my boys now, whether it be by playing the music decorating the house and yard or just playing the dvd's. The memories the season has brought have always warm and it is no wonder why I look forward to making more of these memories every year. My favorite Christmas movie is A Christmas Story my favorite Christmas song is O Holy Night. My favorite Christmas artist is Bing Crosby.
Well if I ran on a little bit I am sorry I am new to blogging, it sounds always better in your mind.
I will try to keep posting and making it interesting for all who read.

It has been a while since I last posted on my blog, and with everything going on in the world and in life in general, I have some thoughts I would like to share.

It is hard to witness what is going on in Japan right now, they are broadcasting it on the news, will the nuclear power plant turn into the next Chernobyl? Three Mile Island? The search for survivors is always great to hear when they find one, but the loss of life is just horrific to hear about. The people over there are going through hell right now and you have jackasses like Gilbert Gottfried making insensitive jokes about their pain and suffering.

Death seems to be the prevalent topic at the moment for a lot of people, my wife went to the wake of her former high school basketball coach on Friday, while she was in line for the viewing, her friend received a text message stating that another former basketball coach, and really good family friend of hers had a heart attack and died that same day. So 4 days later she goes to another wake at the same funeral home. To say the least she is pretty shaken right now.

This past Sunday was the twentieth anniversary of my mother's passing, she succumbed to breast cancer at a way to young of an age of 36. My sister and I only found out it was terminal a couple of years ago, our family hid that fact from us for so long. She has been gone for 20 years, so I only knew her for 16, and two of those years were lost from a nasty custody battle between my parents. Sometimes it is hard to think of the past with so much time passed, the what could've beens the whys, she never got to meet my beautiful wife, her 4 grandchildren, and so much more. Why did she leave so soon?

To our friend Shiny Brite, I have thought about you since reading your post from last night. I will keep you in my thoughts, I truly feel for you right now, I wish I, probably like so many here, could help you through this tough time. Even though we are friends through typed words, I care about you and everyone I have met through this wonderful site. We truly are a "family" and we are here for each other.
