I like playing tennis and you will find my best friend and I constantly playing tennis throughout the year. Our wives like to complain that we spend too much time together and joke that maybe we really do not like women at all. We know that deep down they are grateful that we are not spending all our time drinking beer and raising havoc.
Tennis is a way to keep me mellow. If I do not get to play tennis for a few days I get anxious and restless. I am like a drug addict when they need their drugs. Before I leave the house to play tennis I set my home security alarm (MORE INFO) and then head out to my truck and then drive to the tennis courts at the park.
We always play tennis at the city park unless the weather is bad and then we will play at one of the indoor tennis courts we have here in town. Most days my best friend will meet me there and we will place tennis for a few hours. During the summertime we tend to play late into the evening.
My wife will usually call and tell us the steaks are about done and then we will rapidly head back home. A day spent playing tennis topped off with steak grilled by the wife is a great way to spend my days.

Jodel was playing with her tricycle outside and I don't really know what happened but she got hurt. She got a big wound on her right foot. It was bleeding. She cried out loud. I went to the store and bought a medicine. She can't walk right now. I feel so bad for her hope the wound will get better soon.

Feb of last year we went to big bear for a birthday party. It wasnt expected that when its time to go back to LA, storm was predicted in Big Bear. Along the road people are putting tire chains in thier back tires to prevent sliding down. Every one is required to put on tire chains for your safety and others as well.
Police are on-stand by to catch those cars without tire chains and also to direct traffic accordingly. Tire chains are easy to install but hard to disconnect.
Anyway, if you are looking for tire chains just check out tirechaindealer.com They have chains that are easy to install - not the ones that get people frustrated. They have many installation and product YouTube videos to make it easier to know what you are getting into when you purchase the products.
The most popular product is the Grip which installs in less than 2 minutes per tire and cost less than $100. The EasyToGo product is for ultimate ease of installation.

My favorite fall TV show premier had to be The Office. It was by far my favorite first episode because of the new intern, Michael Scott's nephew. He only buoys my prejudice against young people and their intrinsic laziness. This is something I never understood, being that the youth are supposed to have all the energy. Yet it is a strange unsolvable paradox why those with the most energy seemingly are the most indolent amongst us. At first I thought it was the drugs, but then I realized through watching this episode that it was lack of focus.
The intern spends all his energy on music and video games, and is constantly distracted to where he does not pay any attention and screws up even the most menial tasks. This is indicative of all youth, especially my own son. As a consequence, I have decided to show him this episode of The Office over and over again strapped to a chair with his eyes pried open so they cannot blink. I also turn up the volume really loud so that he can hear it, as his ears have been damaged from years of rock concerts and other unsanitary activities.
It is only because I have satellite TV from www.tvbydirect.com/hd-receivers/ that I was able to watch this episode and do so in high definition. The decision to go with an all-inclusive package, including local channels, may have saved my family.

We're going to have a need for much more cooking and food space pretty soon because me wife is due with twins in just a couple of months. So we're looking to expand the kitchen and a whole bumch of other parts of our household too.
But we thought that we'd start with the kitchen first because that's something that we all use. Once we started on the sears redo kitchen I was really excited to see how everything was going to turn out, including all the new appliances we were having them put in, which really was the biggest concern for all of us.
We decided to go with black appliances appliances although we really liked the look of stainless steel. It's just that some of our friends have stainless steel ovens and you can always see their kids' handprints on them. Besides, black appliances look just as modern anyway. We wanted to do it right if we were going to do it and think about what we'll want in the future.

If you are a rookie when it comes to buying and selling real estate, then crank up the satellite TV from tvbydirect.com for the series called Real Estate Confidential to pick up a few pointers. Geared for the novice and starting from square one, Real Estate Confidential is a like a road map to success if you want to purchase a piece of property for your own use or pick up a discounted home to turn a profit.
Real Estate Confidential is basically a series of interviews and stories told by expert real estate buyers to give you a good idea of what's hot and what's not. In addition, you can pick up some valuable information about real estate financing for credit resembling the good, the bad or the ugly.
If you are serious about learning the tricks of the trade to secure a decent piece of property, then set your TIVO or DVR and watch each Real Estate Confidential twice. You can get valuable insight from segments off other TV shows, however, Real Estate Confidential is non stop action to bring you up to speed on the industry.
Real Estate Confidential started in 2007 and the episodes get more engaing every week. I learned enough in just a month to use the plans and strategies to house hunt without fear, from learning the business end of the deal to cosmetic repair for a fixer.
Yeah Jolaine can walk now. Really happy! Last night Joel, Joey and Jodel was doing jumping jack and push ups. Jolaine tried to copy them. She was trying to jump but she couldn't lol. It was so funny. She was laughing a lot. Anyway, I like it when they do excercise.
Jolaine is walking everywhere in the house and outside. Really cute!

I can't wait for Halloween because for the last few years we have watched a super cute movie on the satellite tv from www.directstartv.com/localchannels/, "Wallace & Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit." All of the Wallace & Gromit film are super cute, but this one is the best!
Wallace and his dog Gromit has a pest control service that keeps bunnies out of peoples vegetable gardens. But when a giant beast threatens the annual giant veg competition the two are hired to capture it by Lady Tottington who is an extreme vegetable enthusiast. This is all done in claymation and the characters and the little bunnies are beyond adorable.
There are some King Kong tributes and some adult jokes that are beyond the heads of little ones which make the film fun for all ages.
My kids both love the stomping and the howling of the were-rabbit. They imitate it all over the house whenever we watch the film which makes me and my husband laugh hysterically because they just look so funny running around together thumping their feet on the floor and howling at the ceiling.
The movie is great and I can't wait to show it to the kids again. I know that we will enjoy it as a family and who knows, maybe even the dog will get in on the howling session this year.
My son didn't sleep good last night. He was coughing a lot. I don't know why he always have a cough. He was very lazy this morning I feel so bad for him . I can tell that he is very sleepy. He can't even open his eyes when I woke him up. I carried him downstairs and put him at the couch while I was preparing his snacks. Ten minutes before we go outside I put shoes on him and really tried to wake up good. He took a shower last night so that was a good thing lol. It was a little bit cold outside this morning so I put a jacket on him. Hope he will be okay at school. I am always worried about him.

Thanks for the post from Kirk Wood
My husband and I love the Indianapolis Colts games, and Lucas Oil Stadium is one of the best stadiums we have ever gone to. Normally when we do not get to see a game in person, we watch the professional football games on satellite tv from www.ExpertSatellite.com dressed in our Colts hats and shirts pretending we are there. This is going to be the first game in quite a while that we get to see in person. My husband and I are taking his mom and daughter this time so it will be much more interesting. The three of us will be getting there early so we can grab some drinks and nachos and get in our seats before it gets hard to find them. Our seats are close enough that we will be able to see all the awesome players up close like Payton Manning, Austin Collie, and Adam Vinatieri. The whole team is out of this world. Even the coach for the Indianapolis Colts, Jim Caldwell, is a terrific man. Watching professional football up close and personal is the greatest way to watch the game ever. We are off to the game!

I have never experienced anything quite like volunteering at my son's school. A lot of parents, including myself, work and can't do much volunteer work; however, I try to at least chaperone field trips. It's not always easy chasing fifth graders all day, setting my home security alarm from totalalarmsystems.com before I leave the house makes it a lot easier because I can really focus on the kids and not the safety of my home.
My son's class also does bake sales and car washes. These are great too and I love attending them every chance I get. Of these two I'd have to say the car washes are my favorite; the kids always have a splash of a blast.
The kids are getting to the age that soon they won't want parents around all the time so I'm going to squeeze in as much as I can before he kicks me out of his school. I think before that happens I'm going to start volunteering in the classroom again. It will at least give me a chance to see what he's learning before he shuts me completely out of his social life.

My son got home today reminding me about their school. They are going to have a photo taken for a school year book. They are going to do it this coming Friday. So, I am going to dress him good I am so glad I cut his hair last week.
Anyway, They are sending us a catalog and the prices if we want to order. I was planning not to order because I know how to take pictures and again, I don't want to embarrass my kid to not to have his own pictures from school so I will just order pictures even though we don't need them. I have a thousand dollar camera here and now I am ordering photos at the school which is I don't really need but that's okay. I love my son I want him to be happy and I don't want other kids to make fun at him..

My son have a school fundraiser. They are trying to sell cookies for 15 bucks and we think 15 dollar for one box of cookies are way to high. They over price it. Hubby don't like school fundraiser. We are paying taxes for the school district and now we are trying to sell cookies for 15 bucks a box for the school. Whoever sells a lot they get prices. How about a kid that can't sell one? They don't get prices that's why they are trying to sell lots of cookies so they can win prices for like a 5-10 dollar worth of toys. And whoever sells 20 box of cookies will have big price. What kind of prices? They are going to take the kid to CiCis Pizza WOW...what in the world. Hubby will just take my son to pizza place without any problem..
Anyway, that's what school here, that's kind of new to me because we don't do that in Philippines.
