Shifetober 25th

I’m not quite sure how the book signing party will go but I do know this: Regardless of the outcome, we are still going to booze.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Shifetober 23rd

Alright this one's for my friend Amy Mulligan.
You know those Snickers commercials where they say you aren't yourself when you are hungry. Then they have a Snickers and boom … all is well again.
Well here's my commercial idea for AdvoCare Spark: You aren't yourself when you have the kids. Then you drink a Spark and boom … all is well again because your mental energy and focus has been restored. 
There are some days when I feel like the little germ farmers have completely erased my mind because I do stuff like trying to put both contact lenses in one eye or send Kyle to school wearing his sister’s sweat pants or walk the dog with pine needles in my underwear and have no idea why my butt was so damn itchy during the entire walk (don’t even ask because I have no idea how they got in there but they did.) Amy was kind enough to send me some Spark samples and I felt like I had it together for the first time in a long time when I was with my kiddos. This stuff is awesome. Thank you Amy.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Shifetober 22nd

Congrats to Jerry Barnett for winning Contest #3. Now we are down to the last giveaway. All you have to do is tell me something that is your favorite. Your favorite movie, book, quote, yoga position, Star Wars character, dog, cat, band, book, alcoholic beverage, planet, state, country, sandwich, university in Iowa, hand sanitizer, Seinfeld episode or breath mint. I think you get the idea. Please let me know your favorite with a comment. Thanks.

I'll get things started with my favorite shitty movie, "Sorority Boys." 

"Well, uh, my name is Roberta, and … I'm addicted to porn and I masturbate constantly." 
Roberta is the redhead and the movie is about 3 fraternity guys who are kicked out of their house and dress up in drag to live in a sorority called the DOG house. Yes it's as bad as it sounds but it makes me laugh like an idiot.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Where In The World Is My Book Today? 
Well there have been sightings in Missouri, North Dakota, Texas, Indiana and Florida. So awesome. My book also was also spotted again in Washington and Idaho. I would like to think my book being in Moscow helped the Idaho Vandals get their first win of the season. And regarding the Halloween costume picture, well my friend Michelle said, "I'm more excited to read my friend's new book "Confessions of a Dumb, White Guy," than this guy is to wear his Light-Up Stick Figure costume." Thank you JayBobCaraStephanieNoelleWendy, Michelle and Kden for sharing.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Shifetober 20th

After following my blog for a little bit, someone sent me an email a few years ago suggesting that I should write a book. I laughed it off and basically said, "Thanks for the suggestion but I don't think so." However, it did plant a seed and eventually led me to where I am at today. Writing and sharing my book with the world has been a dream of mine since I was kid in high school but it was just that -- a dream. A dream I didn't think was possible but looking back I realized the only thing ever stopping me was me. The process wasn't always easy or fun but it has been worth it. Having people read my book and share their feedback with me has exceeded my wildest expectations. I don't know if you have a dream that you want to pursue but do it. I'm here telling you to please follow your dreams and make them a reality. Turn those can'ts into cans before it's too late. Thanks for listening and thank you so much for support.

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Shifetober 19th

Hello there. How's your Sunday going? Mine's going pretty good. Thanks for asking. 
I do that a lot. Assume that you ask how I'm doing. I have no idea where I picked it up. I'm guessing some '80s movie where the main character was some smart ass. My sense of humor was heavily influenced by those movies. Fletch, Stripes Ferris Bueller's Day Off come to mind. 
Well enough of that. 
Some of you might be wondering why I wrote this book and some of the obstacles I faced getting it off the ground. Well if you were indeed wondering that, then you can read all about it as my book's "Introduction" is available for free right here, You might get a few chuckles out of it and we all could use some of that these days. It also gives you an idea of how my book is structured as it's just not a bunch of my favorite blog posts. There's actually some rhyme and reason to the book. 
Thanks and enjoy the rest of your day.
And here's another "interesting" person I found on the Internet. 

I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.
