Welcome to our newest member, elf princess
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.

I have been dealing with some strange goings on the last few weeks, as I have said in the past I am an extremely shy person, and when you mix in women who flirt with you it makes for some comical results. I prefer to be a person who does not stick out, almost like "wallpaper" I am there but not noticed. That is the way I like to be, if someone ever wanted my "15 minutes of fame" I would pay them to take it. First time I noticed I was being flirted with I was going in to pick up a pizza, I walked in, I have to walk by the bar to the pick up window, I noticed 3 women watching me, I felt very self conscious, I get to the window and the pizza order had just been put in the oven, so I had to go back by the women, I quickly walked out and went to sit in my car while I waited. 10-15 minutes later I had to go back in, I was nervous and dreading it almost, I went back in making sure my wedding ring was COMPLETELY visible, they watched every step I took, I just wanted to leave. I got my pizza, and headed out for the last time walking quickly, past them when one of them looked at me turned an said "Hi," I mumbled something and out the door I went, feeling the relief that it was over.
Then yesterday while I was at work, I was putting some merchandise up when a woman walked up to me and started talking to me, asking me about my hair of all things, when a friend of hers walked up to her, and said hi to her, she turned to her and said " Oh, you caught me flirting with him." Then she smiled at me, I quickly moved along, trying not to be rude, since she was a customer, and I was working. I walked away bright red, and felt grateful her friend came along. She circled a few times while she shopped and made sure she said hi to me. I am completely flattered by the attention, it makes me feel good that women have flirted with me, but I would rather be not noticed.

My wife thinks it is the funniest thing that these women were flirting with me, she says "they don't realize they are speaking to one of shiest people in the world." As I have said before my wife and I met at the right time, right place, I opened up to her right from the beginning, I KNEW she was the "one" the first time I met her, my shyness did not exist with her. I told her about these episodes for a good laugh, and I knew I could because we are so happily married, and we share all. I love her more than anything in this world, we have been together for nearly 13 years now, and I don't see anything ever separating us.

    This is so wonderful Ron !! I am pretty shy myself so I do understand. I know what you mean (believe it or not !!) about when a person pays "that" kind of attention to you and you do not want it. I could feel your discomfort as I read. Some people just don't get it - They think if someone is wearing a wedding ring it is just for decoration or something. It is nice to know that you and your wife truly love each other and it also nice to be able to appreciate a truly loving and committed relationship this day and age. My hats off to you and your lovely wife. Your boys are SO lucky to have the mom and dad they have ox

    hi there i feel for you . its terrable when someone flirts with you and you have no interest. and you dont want to be cheeky and say something nasty. and agree with cm3 some people see a wedding ring as nothing, only to overcome it. there is some woman and men to, that have it in there head that no man or woman is beyond being unfaithful and see a ring as being a challange. but its nice to be in a relationship where you can tell your wife anything. and she does not loss it . and say " your doing something to encourage it "
