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.

To Be Yourself Is Beautiful...

As some of you have noticed I have a new quote on my signature for the forums. It is kind of a funny sounding quote, but it has struck a nerve with me as I have thought about it. I have recently discovered it in a cool sounding song called "The Feathered Tiger" it is a lyric toward the end of the song about a feathered tiger and the people who try to cheer up the tiger are basically telling him to be himself.

I have recently decided to be 100% me all the time, as a way to fight this anxiety I deal with. I wrote earlier this year on how I want to defeat my anxiety, and I feel this is the best way to do just that. I have struggled being me from time to time, I always thought of myself as not to good looking, not good enough, a boring person who cannot make small talk, etc... I have friends at work who have shown me I am good enough, and with that I have more confidence than I have had in many years. If I don't mention my wife here it would be wrong of me, as she...
