7/18/07 - HUGE NEWS!!! SERIOUSLY...THIS IS BIG!!!

So...I know there are several people who read my website that I don't talk to on a regular basis, so I feel this is a good place to do this. We don't have an exact date or anything, but sometime during the first few months of 2008, I will be a dad. Cristi found out that she is pregnant last week and I'm just now getting around to announcing it. We have no information other than that she is pregnant at this point.

Now, for those of you who read the blog and are religious or believe in a higher power, we request your prayers and thoughts. Several months ago, we were pregnant and lost the baby. For this reason, we are very paranoid about things going wrong. Please pray that the baby will be safe and that Cristi and I can stay sane during the next few months.

As time goes on, I'll make more updates about the progress of the baby and all that stuff. To continue with the update though, we got moved this past weekend. It's amazing how much stuff we have. Here's what it took to get us moved. 1997 Explorer, 1998 Accord, 1997 Tahoe, Xterra (not sure about the year), 1996 Pathfinder (two loads), 1996 Silverado, 2005 Tahoe (two loads, probably a 3rd), a 7'x20' trailer (not positive about those dimensions, but it's close), a 6'x12' trailer, and a 4'x6' trailer. We were able to fit about 80% of that in a 10'x20' storage unit and the rest is sitting at my parent's house either in the living room, dining room, garage or the bedroom we are using. I really think we should get rid of a lot of the stuff we had. Our pots and pans for example used probably 10 boxes, plus two rather large rubbermaid bins. There is no way we need that much stuff. I could be wrong, but I just don't see it.

Having been in the lawn care business now for a few months, I already see how running your own business can be so difficult. This month, I sent out 8 (if I remember correctly) invoices. Of those 8, one was paid late and I still have not received payment on two of them. I don't know if it is my customers, or if there are really that many people that are just late on all their payments. It's not nearly as big of a deal for me because I'm not trying to feed my family off this job, but for those that do this as their only source of income, that has got to be horrible.

Sunday, me and my dad put sides on my trailer to make it "enclosed". I've got a lock on the back gate now so all of my stuff is secure...enough. If someone really wanted my equipment, they could get it, but they would have to climb a 6 foot wall of plywood and to get the mower, they'd still have to lift a 600 pound pile of metal.

So I've been on this new website for a while now called Blubet.com. You basically make wagers on different bets that people make up. It's is all fake money and some of the bets are just silly. Whatever the case, I'm #2 in all time winnings and somehow only #6 in overall ranking. If you want to join, just click here --> Join BluBet. It's pretty easy to follow and you can even make up your own bets and stuff. I make no money from it, (although I do get an extra 500 blubet dollars for referring someone) I just really enjoy the website and wanted to share it.
