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.

Tags vacation, work

As I sit here getting ready to wind down for the night, I have that feeling in the pit of my stomach, the feeling of dread of going back to work. I have worked for the same company for the last 10.5 years and its the same thing everyday, prep for the day and put out fires that are not my own because I unfortunately work with some people who do not care if they do their job or not. I don't like to complain about the others as I like everyone I work with but it just annoys me to no end where I have to do other peoples work until I need help getting caught up in my own job. I have no sense of accomplishment in my job anymore, and now that my vacation is over my thoughts turn over to my dream of running my own shop. I have years to wait yet I cannot wait until that day is here. Until then as a semi-wise man once told me: "It's a rat race, and the rats are winning."
