Lindsay’s Book Preorder! “I Stepped in Troll Furphy”

Lindsay’s book “I Stepped in Troll Furphy” is going on sale very soon here! She is launching her Pre-order now. We will get it for Pre-order on Amazon tomorrow. She has just been selling the paperbacks so far and ran out. She’s doing her 2nd printing and decided to sell it on here and other book websites soon. I’m glad. A lot of people have been asking me about her book. It’s a lot longer than my book. I think it’s hilarious. She has a way with words that’s for sure and I’m glad that I’m not the entire subject, I’m just in a chapter or 3.

If you want to Pre-order her book you can go here now:

I hope that works. The books will start to be sent out in a few weeks. She’s using the same company that I used to process. They did a great job for me and they are pretty fast. Her book is going to cost $14.99 initially and she will lower the price in a few months or never. She hasn’t decided.

It really is a funny book. Several of our friends that have read it said she should write more. I’m happy to see her finally doing something with it instead of emailing me how many books she sold at her marijuana store events Lol I guess it’s got a slight drug, marijuana drug cartel following? I don’t know who her friends are but she’s doing well with book sales.

I just got Talon back to sleep and remembered I told her I would post this. I’m going back to bed now guys! Goodnight!

You’ve got Mail, Well actually You’ve got Newsletter

All of my Batfans please check your email accounts or Dm’s because I finally finished sending out my Book Tour dates, locations, and times to you all. It took me 2 days to get it out there. I will be returning to some of the same cities and this time we added some new ones. It’s going to be a fun 2 weeks and I’m looking forward to meeting or seeing ya’ll again soon!

My fans have always shown me respect and love. They have believed me from the beginning and a lot of former trolls have come to the right side after much debate. I’m happy to meet you guys, hang out a little bit, and see what you think of Lindsay’s book.

All 3 of our books will be on sale for all of you to purchase. We will autograph them and personalize each copy. Please be patient if we have a line. Most people come just to meet Lindsay since she is truly a character and a half. She can be entertaining just signing the books. She generally hates all human beings so this isn’t her favorite thing to do but she does like to make money and that’s why she’s sitting there.

I’m really excited to see what questions I get this time around. I realize I’m going to end up repeating the same answers from city to city but my hope is this time people start to realize that all of the answers are right here on this blog. You can read the entire story.

I’m not happy leaving my family for 2 weeks however with my family coming into town and my wife’s family coming into town the week after to meet Talon and visit the kids it’s the perfect time on our calendar.

See you guys soon! I love ya’ll very much. God bless!

We are homebodies?

My wife and I rarely get to leave the house. Our small trips to the grocery store are the only vacations we get. We argue over who gets to leave and go to the store Lol I love my kids and they are a lot to handle. Most of the time things are great and then that 1 kid just gets wild (Alex) and then we have a mess on our hands. Trying to keep a 2-year-old quieter for the sleeping babies is impossible. My boys have a lot of activities they are into right now and we keep them on a moderately flexible schedule. It’s getting them prepared for this pre-school experience they will have in a year or so. My wife thinks we need to teach them something new everyday. I agree education is great but how about we just let them be 2 for a minute? They are learning. I do teach them stuff and they do listen to me. Well Heston listens. Alex just wants to be loud right now. That’s who he is, I try not to discourage it too much unless he’s out of control. I don’t know why they say twins are exactly alike all the time. That’s not true. My boys are polar opposites and it doesn’t take a genius to realize that.

We had a family meeting about moving Peace out of our room. She slowly crept in there little by little until I finally realized she was not going back to her room at night. I admit it took me 3 days to notice it. My wife said its just easier to keep them both in there. I disagree. Neither of us get much sleep now. The little few hours we can do at night, I’d like to at least try. Talon gets to stay in for 2 more weeks. Then he gets booted to the nursery with Peace.

I’m also aware that I’m leaving for my book tour soon and when I’m gone she’s just going to bring them back into the bedroom anyway Lol

How is everyone doing? All of the school shooting coverage comes over here sporadically. We have CNN go on our ipads so we can keep up to date on what’s going on in the States. I do get some Twitter updates on “Breaking News” but honestly most breaking news items aren’t. They over hype that stuff way too much.

We are settling into life with 4 kids. My wife wants more kids with me. I am happy to oblige I just want to wait a few years to see if we can handle these 4. I adopted Peace and we had Talon so close together we will be raising them almost as we are raising the twins. They will be in the same grade in school. They will both share a room until we need to separate them. I pray they will always be close. I know their older brothers will look out for them when they all grow up. It’s fun. It’s also really exhausting and a lot of hard work. Being a stay at home parent is harder than I thought. I have all of this free time and then the entire day blows by and I realize I didn’t get one thing done on my To Do list. It keeps happening. I need to focus. The past 2 months I’ve just done things when I wanted to do them. I need to get it together. Thankfully we have a maid that comes over 2 times a week to help clean up and do laundry. I’m doing the best I can to keep things picked up but my kids are disaster zones. They go into a room and 5 minutes later it’s trashed Lol I swear all day long all I do is feed, clean, pick up on and on and on. Does anyone else feel like that?

When I back from my book tour my wife said she’s going to start looking for a job. She wants to continue in law. She’s very good at it and I support whatever she wants to do 100%. She just doesn’t know what to do. She said she will figure something out and then it’s my turn to figure out what I want to do. She said I can have 3 months off in my “retirement” and then I’m going to drive her nuts and I need to go do something. I don’t really drive her nuts it’s just the fact that I’m always home. She liked it when I was gone 10 hours a day during the week. When she was on bed rest the last few weeks of her pregnancy she said she liked it. It wasn’t that hard she was just uncomfortable. She realized she doesn’t want to be a full-time stay at home mom. She also does not want to work from home. She knows her limits and she would want to stop work to go play with the kids. Or the kids would come find her and bug her until she was not working. She knows what will work best and I told her our 3 nannies aren’t going anywhere. Go do you. Whatever that is.

I have some ideas for myself I just don’t know which one to pick yet. I know I’m not an author or writer so don’t worry about anymore books coming out of me Lol This whole editing process on my 2 existing books was enough. There’s a lot to it and I’m happy it’s done.

Any ideas on what my next big career path should be? We were offered a podcast about our family but I told them no. I don’t want to open my life up like that. I’m very private and prefer to share what I control to share. Not throw out a podcast on a weekly basis and let the entire world comment on it. No thanks. My story is my story and I just don’t like giving away the direction the content would go. I like doing the podcast with my friend once or twice a month. Her show is awesome and I enjoy doing it with her but she’s got way more free time than I do. She only has 2 kids. Single mom and she’s really making a name for herself. I’ve known her for years. Great person. I just don’t see myself doing anything like that.

I don’t know, guys. What should I do next?

Rowboat Book Club Book #62

We are only going to read this 1st book. On your own if you want to do the other 2 in the Trilogy, okay. Veronica Roth wrote this amazing action, romance, everything book. It’s called Divergent. And we are going to read it this month.

Plot

Further information: List of Divergent characters and Factions (Divergent)

In post-apocalyptic Chicago (though this is not revealed until Allegiant), survivors are divided into five factions: Abnegation, the selfless; Amity, the peaceful; Candor, the honest; Dauntless, the brave; and Erudite, the intelligent. All sixteen-year-olds are tested to determine which faction they are best suited for, but select their own faction at the Choosing Ceremony. Those who do not complete initiation become “factionless,” living on the streets.

Sixteen-year-old Beatrice Prior feels she does not belong in her Abnegation family. Her inconclusive test results (Abnegation, Dauntless and Erudite) mark her as “Divergent,” and the test administrator Tori warns her never to tell anyone. Agonizing over her future, Beatrice decides to leave Abnegation and join Dauntless. Her brother Caleb chooses Erudite.

The new Dauntless initiates jump onto a moving train to Dauntless headquarters, and are instructed to jump onto the roof. Most make it, but one initiate falls to her death, and another is too afraid to jump. They are then ordered to jump into the compound entrance; Beatrice jumps first. Reaching the bottom, she tells the instructor Four that her name is Tris.

Four explains that, unlike the other factions, who accept all successful initiates, only the top ten Dauntless initiates will stay while the rest become Factionless. Tris befriends several fellow initiates like Christina, Will and Al, but comes into conflict with others like Peter, Drew and Molly.

The Willis (or Sears) Tower, one of several landmarks Roth describes within post-apocalyptic Chicago, the novel’s setting.

In the first stage of initiation, they are trained in guns, knives and hand-to-hand combat. Despite her lack of physical strength, Tris finishes in sixth place. A relationship emerges between Tris and Four, and Tris is pummeled by Peter in a fight. After the Stage 1 rankings are announced, the second-place Peter stabs first-place Edward in the eye. Edward leaves to become Factionless, followed by his girlfriend Myra. This allows Peter to take Edward’s place as the first-place initiate.

On Visiting Day, Tris’ mother tells Tris to stay strong but to not bring too much attention to herself during training.

Erudite stirs dissent against the city’s Abnegation leadership and accuses their leader Marcus of abusing his son. The rumors are fueled by the fact that Marcus’ son, as well as Tris and Caleb, all left Abnegation, which is also alleged to be hoarding supplies.

The initiates enter Stage 2, facing hallucinations based on their deepest fears. Tris’ Divergent abilities give her an advantage and earn her the top rank. Peter, Drew, and Al attack Tris, threatening sexual assault and nearly throwing her to her death, but Four intervenes. Al begs Tris’ forgiveness, but she rejects him; he later commits suicide.

The final stage gathers the initiates’ fears into a simulated “fear landscape,” testing their acquired skills. Tris and Four grow closer, and he lets her into his own fear landscape; she discovers he has only four fears, hence his nickname. In Four’s final fear, Tris also learns that he is Marcus’ son Tobias, and the claims of abuse were true. Four uncovers Erudite’s plans to use Dauntless to stage an attack on Abnegation.

Tris overcomes her fear landscape, and the Dauntless initiates are injected with a “tracking” serum. Tris shares her feelings for Tobias, and is ranked first at the initiation ceremony.

A junction on the Chicago “L”, one of modern Chicago’s train systems. Dauntless demonstrate their fearlessness by jumping on and off moving trains throughout the novel.

The serum transforms the Dauntless into hypnotized soldiers to attack Abnegation. Tris and Tobias’ Divergent abilities allow them to remain unaffected by the serum and escape to the Abnegation compound. Tris is shot and they are captured. Erudite leader Jeanine Matthews, mastermind of the attack, injects Tobias with an experimental serum that overrides his Divergence. Under Jeanine’s control, Tobias oversees the attack from the Dauntless control room. Tris is almost drowned in a tank, but is rescued by her mother, who reveals she is also Divergent before she is killed whilst helping Tris escape. Tris is forced to kill Will, who attacks her under the influence of the simulation.

She finds her and Tobias’ fathers, explaining the truth behind the attack. They fight their way to Dauntless headquarters, where Tris’ father sacrifices himself. Tris is attacked by the mind-controlled Tobias; unable to kill him, Tris surrenders, causing Tobias to break free of the serum’s control. They shut down the Erudite simulation and free the Dauntless. They rejoin the initiates, and board a train to the Amity sector to find the Abnegation survivors.

They are 2 and I’m getting old

Yesterday was our small family birthday party for my twins Heston and Alex. It’s still too soon to have a bunch of people in our home with Talon so we are waiting to do a bigger party for them in March with all of our family and friends. Because of the way Talon came into this world being sick my wife said we are holding everyone off to come meet him for a month. Whatever she wants to do I’m fine with. She knows best.

I was dressed in my Batman suit because it was a full on Batman party. I’m not going to be dressed up on the next party Lol No way. I realized how hard it is to sit down in that thing and it takes forever to get it on and off. I had to have help getting out I had sweated so much it felt glued on. However…

My boys loooooooved it. That’s the first time they’ve seen me in it. I have put it on a few times for my wife (Don’t ask Lol) and that’s been it. It still fits, which is amazing after how much we all ate during the winter. I’m happy to know it’s still in pretty good shape after all of these years. The hard part today is I have to clean it all up and that takes about an hour.

We had vegan cake, regular cake, ice cream, vegan ice cream, and an assortment of snacks. I took my boys out for a special birthday surprise. We got to meet some Super Heroes at a book event that just so happen to be on their birthday. They won’t know it was just a book event and not part of their actual party so we won’t tell them that until they are older. I got a ton of photos with a lot of the characters holding or behind my boys. It was really cool that when I said hey it’s their birthday today they all let me take photos with everyone. I had to buy 4 books but that’s fine because I like to read that type of book anyway. The other 3 copies will be mailed off to friends.

Seeing how much my boys have grown up, it’s crazy. I remember them being tiny little guys and how scared I was to even change the first diaper. I always felt like I was going to hurt them when I held them wrong or if I wasn’t sure how to hold them up on my shoulder the first few times. Now I just whip right through all of it with no problems. I was all alone when they were born. I had no wife, no girlfriend, no plan. Just me and my boys. Now I have a family for them. I have contact with their birth parents which is so important for me and them. We know their medical history and we also pretty much know what they will look like as they grow up. I’m so happy my amazing little boys are living a happy, stable, life. I’m doing my best everyday for them to make good choices and not get overwhelmed. I’m very patient with my kids and even when they are screaming bloody murder and I’m getting mad I keep my head cool and remember they are just little kids.

The hardest part for me about having twins is when I’m giving attention to one the other wants in on it and I try to balance that. I don’t know how to do it other than just try to keep focus one at a time when needed. Honestly most of the time my boys are either with me or they are near me. They really don’t leave my side that much during the day now. I love it. I don’t like the WWE style beatings they dole out on each other but I know that’s just boys. I remember my brother and I duking it out when we were little and it was a constant whooping that he would get Lol But I always hugged him later and said sorry. I know they will be best friends their entire lives. I want them to remain close to each other and close to us. I don’t care how old any of my kids are, they will always be my babies and even now when I’m out-of-town I make sure I call home a few times a day because I want to and I want to know how everyone is doing.

I love my boys so much. It’s indescribable how much I love my kids. I tell them everyday several times a day I love them and they are finally getting to say it back. They are smart. Man, are my boys smart. They will be smarter than me someday I know that for sure. I want to provide a happy home. I want my wife and I to continue to nurture them, teach them, but also let them figure things out on their own. I will always be here for my boys. Always. I know my family and friends will be too. I’m so happy things are going great. I know that my wife loves them with all of her heart and when we go back to the States for summer vacation she is seriously wanting to adopt all of the kids. She was the one that chose not to. I asked her to adopt but she said no. Then she realized that she is their mom. She feels it, she wants it, and I’m happy she figured it out. I knew she would eventually. I even told her when they all turn 18, go ahead and adopt them. I know that her hesitation was about me and my past and nothing to do with not wanting my kids. I have proven over and over I have changed and I am making better choices. I have proven my complete dedication only to her and I have given her no reason at all to worry about me and other women. Those days are done. Thankfully I got all of that out of my system before my kids were here. I have calmed down, I’m a lot nicer, and I really try hard to be thoughtful. She sees all of that. She said I really am her soul mate and these kids belong with us both in Heaven. She’s taking care of whatever legal steps we need to do and I will happily sign any paper to give her rights to my babies. I trust her with my kids. I trust if we get a divorce we will split custody (And that will be in any new paperwork Lol) but I also know that I will work with her. My kids are our kids and I’m doing my best to make sure everyday she feels like their mom. I think having Talon sealed it for her. Knowing we have a child together, knowing the best thing is to keep all of the siblings together. God forbid anything happens to me, I do want all of my children together. I knew Lindsay would always have them together and that’s why she was in my papers to take custody. She said she’s happy to give them up to my wife, but she also had an hour-long conversation where my wife said Lindsay basically told her if she visits and sees the kids in disarray she’s stealing them and taking them to Mexico Lol I’m pretty sure she means it. My wife just laughed but I got a pang in my heart like Oh god she would do it.

My boys, wow. 2 years old! We made it to 2 and I haven’t lost my mind yet.

Happy Birthday Heston William! Happy Birthday Alexander James! I love you with all of my heart and I hope we made your 2nd birthday very special! Long Live Batdad!

 

U.S. Book Tour starting in March!

I will be starting a 10 city U.S. tour on March 5th 2018 in New York City!

I’m excited to get back to the States for a few weeks and hang out with everyone. This new book tour has been a debate for the past 4 months. I did not want to do it. Then the book stores sent me a contract to do the same type of thing I’ve always done. Show up, sign books, take photos or videos and do about an hour Q&A right after. Well I already know how to do that. The money isn’t the best part. The cities that I am booked for is the sole reason I want to go through this all over again. I’m going to be able to visit family and friends as well as check up on all of our business dealings. I’m happy to not be working however I know it’s smart to still keep a close eye on things. I’ve been overwhelmed with baby Talon for the past few weeks I’m starting to realize there is more to my life than hanging out with my kids 24/7. I need to get back out into the world and do what I do best, offer myself up to my fans and gain experiences.

The debate part came in with the WHEN would I go on tour and what dates would work for our family. My wife said she does not want to join me. She showed up at a few of my signings but only walked out with me when we left. She was never a part of the actual event. She prefers not to join in and I don’t blame her with the subject matter at hand.

To answer the question I get a lot, yes she has read the book. No she wasn’t thrilled about it but she said it’s raw and real. She feels like she has a better understanding of who I am and likes it showed my loyalty to my relationship at the time. She does not like me becoming a target of bullies. That’s part of it. When you get famous, you have to deal with it. I believe I have done a great job because I have Lindsay to handle all of the negative stuff. She has been my warrior. To come from as much bullying as I was taking daily down to the very few comments I see here and there, we have changed a lot of minds. The only questions left is Why did Meri lie? There are so many good reasons for that.

When we launch the book tour the next version of my books (Yes both) will be available. You will have more updated info, more stories, more everything. I’m proud of re-working the content to make it more into an actual real book. Remember as I said from the beginning, I’m not an author. I’m not a writer either. I’m just a nice guy who was lead to believe I could end up with the girl during some very hard circumstances. She told me the whole time her marriage was over and technically she was legally divorced so I believed her. I didn’t realize at the time she was just a bored and lonely housewife that was practically abandoned and then left to live right next door to the families she no longer felt welcomed in. I didn’t know that until after it was all over. If I had that kind of insight I never would have pursued the relationship after she continued to contact me and asked for me over and over to call her. I didn’t know. That’s what love does, it blinds you to reality and makes you believe one set of circumstances that don’t always add up.

Now that I know how much of a liar she is and how she will never tell the real truth about us, okay. I feel good about sharing my side. I feel bad for the women that still think I’m a girl, still try to label me Jackie and still think they know what really happened. How could they? They weren’t there. They were not a part of any of it. All they do is make comments and twist the truth. Some of them have become obsessed with all of this and have even had legal fights to try to one up each other Lol How lame is that? Grow up, ladies. Seriously. Learn how to block and ignore and here’s an idea, Move On. None of you were a part of any of this. Trying to claim your piece of it because you think you know something? How many more times do you need to be proven wrong? It’s kind of ridiculous. That’s the part my wife can’t stand. She hates that so much negative comes near our quiet, peaceful world and she likes that Lindsay has always been quietly in the background taking care of them one by one. Sometimes 3 at a time though Lol She’s pretty good at what she does.

So my book tour will start soon. My kids will be busy visiting with family that will be arriving soon. I’m getting out-of-town on the 2nd day that everyone will be in town. That will be fun for them. My boys’ birth mom and her parents are coming for their visit. They are staying a whole week and this time they are actually staying IN our home. They never do that. I think it’s because the boys are a little bit older now. I’m so shocked as I see my baby cousin’s photos on her Facebook these days. She looks great and every once in a while she will have the exact same smile or look on her face that one of my boys gets. It’s so cool she has continued to make them a part of her life. College is going great for her. I do still send photos and videos to their birth dad any time he asks. He said he doesn’t want to come to Paris but next time I bring them to the States he wants to see if he can come visit. I offered to pay for his trip this time and he was offended. I didn’t mean to offend him I just told him how cool it would be for him to come hang out with all of us. I also understand it’s always going to be a sensitive topic for him and I need to just let him suggest how to deal with this. I don’t always have the right answer. I’m learning that. Finally.

How is everyone doing? I am finally getting time today to write back. We LOVE Paris. Talon is perfect. Growing like a weed. To answer the latest most asked question that I saw over and over in my messages, Yes that was really my son in the video. Yes he had a car seat it’s right behind him to his left on the video. No it’s not broken Lol My goodness, people. When my wife took Alex into the store she unhooked Heston so he could walk around a little because he was throwing a fit being stuck in the truck while his brother got to go somewhere without him. Anyone with 2 small kids or more understands that. The truck isn’t really a truck that’s just what we have always called it. It’s a huge SUV exactly like an Escalade with 3rd row seating. So my wife was sitting next to Heston, that’s why there’s no car seat there. I was sitting next to Alex in the row of seats in front of them and our security was in the front driving, and well securing. Heston is a huge ham and loves to make videos.  He had his Buzz Lightyear and said Daddy do me. Which means do his video for him. As he was chatting away I had him do small messages to the people I like on Twitter. I thought it was a nice gesture and no one has seem ANY of my kids before then. There was a baby photo of them as they were “born” that a troll passed along to everyone claiming I sent it to her Lol HAHAHAHA. You all know I don’t do that, especially with trolls. Why would I? Ridiculous how illogical these women are. He made his little messages at my direction, I uploaded them to my Twitter and we broke the internet. Okay we didn’t break anything but we did PROVE to a lot of people, I am real, my son (At least one of them) is real and that I am still in control of everything that has to do with myself or my family. You don’t know how many messages I got from Trolls and former trolls as they call themselves saying Thank you and I’m sorry. The I’m sorry messages I did reply back to, the thanks yous I did not. I forgive all of them. I have to. They are so ignorant they don’t realize how dumb they sound. Those are the type of people you just have to feel sorry for and also stay away from. They are leaches on the people around them. They don’t know what they don’t know yet they will argue to the death it seems to prove something.

How can any of you prove anything about me when you have never met? Also the one person that you all claim I am, Jackie, will not cash in on the HUGE amount of tabloid, NBC, Dr. Phil, or any other type of paying interview she has been offered? Why wouldn’t she go for the cash grab? Because she has moral integrity and knows that NONE of this even matters in her life. She looks like Lindsay. Period. She has never met Meri. Never even been to Las Vegas and was working in an office the entire time she was supposedly running around Vegas with a friend. All of that she has proven. Further more the one insane, line-crossing, horrible troll that continues to harass everyone and cause problems tried to sue Jackie for a Temporary Restraining order Lol How nuts is that? And what happened? The sheriff went out to Jackie’s mom’s rental property that they own and have owned for more than 20 plus years. The sheriff was let into the home and saw that no one but the renter lived there, 1 person, and went back to the court and told the judge that she doesn’t live there, there is zero proof in the entire county that she lives there and it was dismissed. A judge and a sheriff said on court record she doesn’t live in Oklahoma, yet this insane woman continues to say she does Lol That’s how f***ed up and mentally deranged she is. That’s when most of the harassment finally stopped. When that happened late last year and we found out about it from the trolls, that’s when things changed.

Jackie has lived in Dallas for years. She lives with her husband and 3 boys. She works full-time, her husband works full-time and they are living their dream. She is such a sweet and nice person. I wish Lindsay was more like her Lol But Lindsay is not Jackie, Jackie is not Lindsay, I’m not either one. I’m Sam. A male! Obviously. Anyone that continues to say otherwise is a liar and just ignore them. They are only trying to get a reaction and it never works. I don’t reply. I text or message Lindsay and she handles it. The ones that are most vocal now are all of the ones that have had their accounts locked up. Lindsay even got a guy’s Periscope channel removed for running his mouth. She will continue to protect me and continue to be a really good friend to me. Lindsay is the definition of loyal.

And that’s why she will be on the book tour with me. It’s the main reason my wife is letting me go. She knows Lindsay will handle anything that comes up and make sure I don’t get into any trouble. Let’s hope Lol

I’m happy to meet all of the folks that come to my book tour stops. I’m happy to take photos with you answer any nice questions you have. I realize that it’s going to be the exact same questions at each city. This time I’m used to it. Lindsay will be there also promoting her book. It should be a lot of fun. I will be away from home for 13 days and I’m not excited about that but it’s a good time to go. My kids will have so much family in town they won’t even miss me.

Hope everyone is having a great week. My wife is doing great. She loves holding Talon. She loves it. She has already said she wants another baby with me. I’m fine with that. We had already discussed having another one. After we adopt another girl.

And speaking of that I’m beginning beckoned to the living room to go feed everyone. Time to cook! Have a great day guys! I will update more very soon.

I will start my book tour in New York city and then we will go to:

Other cities include:

Miami

Cleveland

Pittsburgh

Chicago

Salt Lake City

Dallas

Oklahoma City

San Fransisco

Las Vegas

Happy Valentine’s Day 2018

My wife is at the hair place getting her hair ready for tonight. She’s also doing nails and whatever else you ladies do in there. She slept in and woke up to her favorite breakfast in bed. The boys helped me put it all together on a plate and tray. They gave mommy their home-made Valentine’s day cards and then we gave them the cards from me, Peace, and Talon. She loved them all and smothered us all in kisses and hugs. She is not lifting a finger today. I’m making sure of that.

Hope everyone has a special day today. Guys, step it up this year. The women deserve it. Ladies, enjoy all of your special things.

Tonight I am taking my wife out for a fancy dinner. We are both getting all dressed up and going to enjoy a night with no kids and NO talking about kids. We haven’t had a date night since we went to see my wife’s new favorite movie and it’s time to reconnect.

I love my wife with all of my heart. She is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I’m glad she’s in my life and I love our kids. I can’t wait to have more kids with her. She is a great partner, a great friend, and the best mom in the world. I am the luckiest guy on earth to have her and we are going to celebrate like rock stars tonight. It is all about her. She is going to get swept off of her feet. I can’t wait for the rest of her surprises. I have worked a few weeks on this plan and so far it’s going very well. She keeps giving me huge smiles and kisses. That’s how I know I’m doing good. Well that and the dirty things she keeps whispering in my ear Lol

I love you Abby! Happy Valentine’s day!

 

Regular life with a lot more money

Sorry I haven’t updated much lately. We are very busy at home with 4 little kiddos. Talon is almost 2 weeks old. It if already flying by. He is perfect. We went to the doctor to see how his weight is doing. He is on his mom’s breast milk. He’s gaining. He’s thriving. No issues at all. My wife had some questions about breast-feeding that wanted to make me throw up but it’s good she’s asking Lol I googled 2 of the things she was talking about and am very glad I didn’t just ask her what she was talking about. Yuck.

Peace is doing great! Our daughter is growing up so fast. She loves her little brother and we have put them in the crib together for a few naps. Not often though. We have limited who is around them. With this bad flu season still ongoing we have been vigilant. We hosted our Super Bowl party in the guest house so NONE of our guests would be near our kids. We showed them all of our kids via our webcams Lol We had to flick over a few times during the game to see who was up. And to make sure one of the 2 nannies we had in the house was taking care of whoever woke up. My wife and I had flipped a coin before the game. I lost, which meant I was the on duty parent when anyone woke up. I made sure they were tended to, I fed whoever needed to be fed then gave them to their nanny to rock back to sleep. I missed some of the game but not much. Thankfully my wife had pumped 4 bottles that day to make sure I had enough for the overnight.

Speaking of this breast pump. In Nebraska growing up I saw how they got milk from dairy cows. It’s very much the same concept. My wife throws her utter in the plastic thing, she pumps this red ball thing and out comes milk. It’s very weird. When she bought it she told me don’t do anything weird with it. I just laughed because I thought she meant don’t shoot any toys out of it to entertain my boys. Noooooo. That’s NOT what she meant Lol When I realized a day or so later what she really meant I told her I was OFFENDED! I would never try to milk myself. In..any…way…. Lol Yuck! I’m sure there is a guy out there somewhere that tried that. It’s not me and as far as I know it’s not one of my friends. Although it would not surprise me at all if it was one of my dumb buddies from college that tried that once.

Life is great. We are at home almost all of the time. If I have to do any running or errands I try to take my boys who stay in the truck with security or a nanny. My wife and I try to get the boys out together a little more often but we just lose track of the day. We have so much going on with feeding, diapers, baths, bedtime. It just goes so fast. I have rare me time to workout or read my emails.

I’m very VERY happy I’m not working anymore. Our money is great and Lindsay is working very hard to make sure we are getting in a fair share of income. My first January check from the businesses was amazing. Wow. She is really doing well for everyone. She is going to do a round of bonuses soon and then we will wait to do raises for our Hawaii trip this year. I can’t wait to put little Talon in the ocean for the very first time. I still remember putting Peace in there last year and she was so cute.

Life is amazing! I couldn’t be happier. I hope everyone is doing great. I’m going to try to update more often. I have a lot I want to talk about. Living in Paris is fun but there’s a lot of paperwork that goes with it. Until next time, guys! Love ya’ll!
