Random Acts of Shifeness


  • Seriously what is up with some of these captcha words I am getting? I am not trying to break into a secure website. I just want to post a snarky comment or buy some concert tickets. For the love of fat bassets, I feel like I need an effin' degree in hieroglyphics to decipher some of the words I have been given. 
  • Five years ago I was meeting a Playmate of the Year at a strip (or peeler bar for my Canadian friends) club with some friends, and now I am meeting Kyle's preschool teacher. Oh how my life has changed. But you know what? I would not change one thing. I am a lucky guy and grateful for my life, wife, and kids. 
  • Kyle got into an awesome preschool that meets twice a week for 2 hours a day, and it is the one we wanted to get him into the whole time. The only drawback is the session he got into starts at 12:45 which is usually nap time so we might have a Stage 5 crankasaurus for a few weeks until he is acclimated to the new schedule. 
  • What is that you say? What about Little Miss Hayden? Well she has about 4 teeth coming in at the same time. Guess what that equals? One unhappy baby. She is being a trooper but the poor little lady is not a happy camper. 
  • Guess what? I have failed you yet again. I am not going to lie to you and say I looked for that picture because I spent exactly 0 hours looking for it. Sorry. It was a tough week. I am a little emotional as the series finale of "Teen Mom" ended and I am not sure how I am going to fill that void in my life. Oh wait there is "Teen Mom 2." Sweet. Anyway, I swear I do have one, and I will find it but it just did not happen this week. But here is a little something to satisfy your curiosity of a dude wearing a dress:




  • I also thought the dude in a wedding dress was a nice segue to my anniversary My wife and I will be celebrating 8 years of wedded bliss next month and we are enjoying ourselves by going to Vegas. The traditional wedding gift for this time frame is bronze so I figured I would take the lovely Mrs. Shife to place where she work on her tan and I can play penny slots since that is all I can afford with 2 kids.
  • I hope everyone has a great Labor Day weekend, and thanks for stopping by.





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

    Enjoyed this post, Matt. Please give Hayden a remedial kiss from me... four teeth at once is a bit over the top for the poor mite. Kyle will soon settle into his new regime.... trust me on this... grins.

    I'm so with you on the captcha thingy... sometimes I have to abandon a comment because I can't read the damn thing.

    By the way, I loved the guy in the wedding gown!!!

    Sunny Vegas eh? What a great way to spend your anniversary.

    I agree on the captcha; sometimes I'm doubtful such words even exist.
    Sorry for not dropping in here last week. That whole "being sick" thing took a priority.

    Congratulations!!!!
    Enjoy.
    Be a little wild.
    And yes, the captchas are nuts. I sometimes have to go through the process three or four times. Like I don't already feel too old for this world...

    Sorry, that dude in a dress will just not do it. I'm with you on the captcha, sometimes I refresh over and over just trying to get one I can read. Good post today.

    Congratulations!

    My wife and I celebrated 8 years of wedded bliss on our 29th anniversary.

    I actually thought you were going to say that the Playmate of the Year turned out to be Kyle's preschool teacher.

    Have fun in Vegas, but don't wake up with a face tattoo and missing teeth.

    man, it's pretty hard to follow tex's 8 years of bliss comment.

    i'll never figure out why people activate those totally unreadable words.

    Not going to lie until I see it I am not going to believe this picture actually exists :)

    Congrats on the preschool! and I have had trouble with the dumb words lately too

    Preschool time! Kyle will LOVE it.

    With the whole teething thing, not much you can do. Just wipe up the drool.
