What a Crazy 10 Days! (We’re Parents Now)
We talked about this a few weeks ago. Jessica and I had our first kid, our daughter Baby Hubbz April 14th, 2022. We then had our first anniversary on the 17th. And finally Jessica had her birthday on the 24th. I finally have my own family and I love them dearly. I took a week off to be with them. Today I returned to work. Anyway, were excited to see where our life goes from here.
We’re Becoming Parents!
Wow. So this what I’ve been hinting at on the blog. Jessica and I will be having a child in about 2 weeks. How crazy!? I started this blog back forever ago. Jessica and I had only been a couple for a few months. Fast forward to today and we’re about to celebrate our first anniversary of being married (April 17th) and somewhere that week we will be having a girl. She will be here on the 14th if we have to have a C-Section and as late as the 20th if she comes on her due date (but we all know how babies are!)
I’ve said it before on here. This year, as far as the blog goes, is not off to a great start. But in my real life I am so excited to become a father. Anyway, I felt like I should go ahead and share it to the blog.
Tonight, we are going to see Morbius! So everyone who reads this. Have a great night!
It’s been a while.
Last year was the best year in our blogs history. And I really wanted to build on that momentum. And while some stuff definitely happened, I still could have.
I actually got really bad sick on New Years. I was running a fever of at least 103 and shaking. And a few days later on January 4th, one of my best friends and co-workers died suddenly. It was easily the worst week of my life as an adult. And it seems shallow in comparison to those things, my graphics card in my computer died. So I’ve been without my computer for a while now. Hence, while videos and post have stopped. I really feel like the world doesn’t want it to work out. I went to record a digimon box opening and pulled the Omnimon Ghost Rare and then the SD card died.
It was a string of back luck that made me question doing all this side stuff. Maybe I should just focus on work and family. At the end of the day, I still enjoy blogging and recording, but the set backs are rough. Mostly because they require time or money I don’t have. I mean, getting a graphic card is not going to be cheap, so who knows when I’ll get my computer back.
I do have plans for some new blogs, but I’ll either have to do them on my phone or Jessica’s computer. Which I guess isn’t that big of a deal. I just really like editing these post on my computer. My phone is very much a 7 out of 10 experience.
Oh, well. If you’ve stayed following the blog after another month break, thank you for understanding! I want to announce something big tomorrow. So here’s to hoping I can actually pull it off.
That’s all for today. Have a great day!
Birthdays as an Adult Have Lost Their Magic
Maybe it is growing up. Maybe it is a change in prospective. But as you get older, birthdays lose their magic.
Today is my birthday. When people figured out I was working, everyone told me I should have asked off. My initial thought, why? I took Saturday off to go to a family Thanksgiving event. I have Wednesday and Thursday off. I would rather take today and get money than take today off.
I think a lot of working adults will understand that. My life isn’t stressful enough where I need this one night to unwind. I got Pokemon Diamond and Pearl remakes for my birthday. It will probably be next week before I play them (unless I randomly give in to the urge tonight). Even though I’m off, I’m still busy with family functions this week. I have an insurance inspector coming to look at my house tomorrow at 10am. I just got off work. I’ll probably spend the rest of the night rearranging my house for tomorrow and then go to bed.
My mom wanted me to take off work and spend the day with her. But it’s just not the same. People ask me what I want for my birthday, nothing comes to mind. It’s not that there aren’t things I want. It’s just I don’t spend the month leading up to it thinking about it like you do when you’re younger.
I’d be very interested to hear what you guys think about the matter. I bought the $1 Walmart mint chocolate cookies from Walmart as a treat to myself. Outside of that, today was a normal day. So make sure you sound down in the comments. I want to hear if this is something all adults eventually go through or not.
I Applied for My First Side Hustle!
Don’t get me wrong, I do love my job as I have alluded to in previous blogs. I get to put Pokemon cards online for my local hobby shop. Sadly, though, it just pays $10 an hour. Looking ahead to 2022, I have financial goals. I’d like to save more, make more, invest more and take two vacations. Greedy! I know!
However, I feel like my current job is only going to get me so far. Now, this new side hustle isn’t crazy money. But it is still money. It will allow me to make money when I’m off or have free time. That’s the exciting part.
Now I have applied and I’m just waiting to hear back. I’ll do an update blog whenever I figure out the verdict.
Sometimes Work Sucks
I have an awesome job at a hobby shop. I put cards online for a living. But lately there has been some real problems.
I won’t go into it because, while the blog is a collection of my personal thoughts, I don’t believe in airing somethings out. So I’m just hopping on here to vent not to do a tell all. This blog is coming out so close to midnight because a co-worker and I talked for two hours about things we wish we could do at the shop and things we wished we could change.
I have some blogs planned for later so hopefully tomorrow is back to regular content. Thank you guys and have a great day!
Seeing Eternals Tonight!
I had plans to do a Humble Bundle post today, but my day has been very choppy between a meeting and the movies. Meaning I didn’t have time to do a good write up on it. So hopefully that can be something I do tomorrow.
Anyway, tonight Jessica and I are going to see Eternals. So that’s today’s post. Again we will try to get back to regularly scheduled post tomorrow, lord willing.
Thinking Out Loud
I was going to start tracking my investing journey today on the blog or show off some comics I got today. However, when I got home I played Pokemon Emerald. Now I need to walk my dogs and get ready for bed so all those thoughts will have to wait until later. Got big things going on tomorrow though!
Sunday Was Rough…
Most of the time this blog is for entertainment as we review Mangas or talk video game news. However, the blog also serves as a journal sometimes as I track my highlights and lowlights. Last night was definitely a lowlight.
We rushed home to catch the Chiefs Bill’s NFL game. At halftime Jessica asked me where Elizabeth was. We couldn’t find her anywhere. So we went to her usual spot in the guest bedroom. Boy, we couldn’t have guessed what was waiting for us. We found Elizabeth, but it’s the where that’s mind-blowing. She was under our house.
The floor in the guest bedroom is caving in. She fell in somehow and got stuck. This house truly sucks and I don’t even think Jessica and I have really gone into detail about it. Well, either way I spent almost 6 hours trying to get her out and finally rescued her and was in bed by about 5:30am. It was miserable.
Yesterday was pretty rough. Our bodies haven’t recovered from it and there’s a lot of mental anguish as well with the housing market and our job situation. Wednesday will be a great day and we cannot wait to share some pretty big news with you guys.
So here’s to looking on the brightside. Stay tuned! Thanks for reading and have a great day!
It is a Venom Day.
Jessica and I had the impulse decision to bust out our Venom 1 blu-ray and subscribe to AMC’s 20 dollar a month package. This package let’s you pay 20 dollars and then you get to watch 3 movies every week with no extra charge (on tickets at least haha).
So with our lunch we watched the first one. Now we’re at the Theater getting ready for Venom 2.
So should be a fun night. Tomorrow we’re watching the new James Bond with my dad.
