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 nice guy

Why does the old saying "nice guys finish last" seem to strike a nerve with me? I have thought about this in the past and never seem to think of a good reason. I try to be the best person I can be everyday, but I deal with anxiety and shyness that may make me look or act aloof, I try not to when I think about it but circumstances change quickly and I can't be on guard all the time. My life (like many others) has had its deal of trying and happy times, and reading about all that is going on with others on this site, life changes in an instant. When I meet people, I just want to be known as a nice guy, I still use my please and thank yous as often as the situation calls, and I try to instill that quality in my boys. I know my shyness has a lot to do with how people think of me, since that is the first impression of me people get, it takes a lot to loosen me up and when I haven't seen a friend in a long time that shell just covers me back up and it takes just as long for me to loosen...
