History in the making

Aubrey and Mackenzie

I’ve recently been told, once again, that I need to be keeping a journal of my life. I’ve had a journal since I was 8 years old. It’s been in a box that I never look in since that time so I know it’s safe. Last week during a family history class they mentioned that I would need to write in this journal every so often because my family might want to know who I am. Rather than write my thoughts down in my own private journal I’ve decided to keep a public journal that everyone can read. My life is not that private any way. As you can see it’s been over 6 months since my last real post. This is because I simply feel that I have nothing worth mentioning in my life. Now that I say that I have flashes of my family going through my head, so I should probably mention them. My wife, Natalie, and I have been married just over 11 years now. In that time we’ve managed to produce 2 kids and that will be the extent of the kids – despite my mothers wishes. My kids are the greatest curse to ever come into my life. They are the cutest, nicest, meanest, dirtiest, honest, adorable kids I know. My wife spends her days with the kids. This is an act that I know would drive me out the window. I’m fortunate enough to have a job that lets Natalieme afford my lifestyle that gets me out of the house.

Right now it’s Saturday morning. I’m waiting for the kids to wake up. I’m thinking I’ll make a nice breakfast than we’ll go shopping for some gifts we need to get. Monday will be a birthday party for Steve and my mother. I’m at a loss as to what I should be getting either of them. I know that I would prefer to get the cash, but that’s because I have very specific tastes in what I get. Today I would also like to go see a movie that came out a few weeks ago. The movie is called UP. It’s a Pixar/ Disney movie. This will be the first movie that I take Mackenzie to. To my knowledge this is the first movie that she will have gone to in a theatre. Other than this I’ve nothing to add for this post.
