Welcome to our newest member, RMcGuigan
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.

Come On Get Happy

I don't know what is wrong with me lately, I should feel happy but I can't seem to get happy. I have had to force myself to come to this website to try to cheer myself up, but it hasn't worked. I have been reading the Christmas Countdown thread and I cannot get myself to leave little writings for everyone. Maybe I am just spreading myself too thin lately, with the new work schedule and all that is going on there, they make me feel like a number rather than human, it was never like that before. My son has been in school 4 weeks and he has had 3 notes sent home already just for behavior issues. I rarely get to see my wife and the house is in a constant state of disaster. It has been raining for days and absolutely dreary. I feel so exhausted yet I cannot fall asleep until it is so late, this past weekend the kids let us sleep until nearly 8am which is a rarity. I want to feel happy with Christmas only about 79 days away, but I just can't right now.
I have hit a blip in the road, I...
