Maybe it's just me, but I can't stand the fact that I have to use word verification to post a comment to my own blog. Am I missing something or is everyone else plagued with this also. What a bunch of horse shit.
Well, where to start. A lot of things have happened recently that I am VERY excited about.
6 years ago, I was living in a shitty trailer that would shake if it was even a little windy, drivin'
a P.O. S. F.ucked O.ver R.ebuilt D.odge, and had a shitty job cleaning up other people's shit. Literally. So here I am now with my band of merry men, my princess and my bride. Happy as I will ever be, and glad to be this happy.
You're saying "Davis, what the hell are you talking about?" Well, for the first time in my life, I have gotten to a place where I can get what I want. And I have. My wife and I bought a house yesterday. I didn't think it would ever happen. When your parents say that mistakes you make now will affect you in the future, they aren't blowin' smoke up your ass. I found that out the hard way.
What I'm trying to say is my wife and I have finally gotten to a place where we don't feel like we can't do anything or move on. It's not easy and it takes time, but it can be done, as I have come to realize. We now have a home of our own, 2 new vehicles that we never thought we'd get, 4 wonderful children, and most importantly, each other.
I'm not trying to blow my own horn, I just want others to know it's possible and not to give up on what you want. Just make it happen.
If there is one thing I have always hated seeing, It's kids with glasses.
I HATE IT. I automatically feel bad when I see this. Jimmy can attest to this because he had glasses at a young age, and when they were accidentally knocked off of his face playing basketball, I came un-glued. It didn't matter who you were..."You just knocked his glasses off"... Then it was ON.
I had glasses when I was in 5th and 6th grade. They were bi-focals. Yup, a *buttload* of fun. But they actually worked. After that, I didn't have to wear them anymore.
I was hoping that the history of my family, as far as eyes go, would go away as it did with me. I have perfect vision, and I am the only member of my immediate family with no glasses, contacts, etc.
But now, the pain of seeing this begins. The beautiful boy in this pic is my 6 year old son, Ethan. He has been having a lot of headaches recently, so we took him to the optometrist. He has his glasses and now the headaches are gone. He's far-sighted, so you know. He looks so good in them, yet I feel so bad for him. It almost makes me cry. Just because I have hated so much, to see children with bad eyes.
I'll get over it. And in my mind, and hopefully, he will too, just like I did.
