Guess what time it is, almost?

Dear WordPress, I’m not a fan of this new version. I just did the updates, how do I go back? These blocks and the autotyper are ridiculous.

It’s been almost a month since I’ve posted. Sorry about that. This time of year is very crazy. I’ve been traveling locally to do a bunch of donation and charity events. It’s really fun and I want my kids to experience these things early in life. Speaking of which…

My kids are getting so big. They are all growing up so fast. I guess it’s time for a new one Lol In January I will be starting the adoption process 1 last time. 4 is it for me. I feel good about having 4 kids. I’m okay that I’m adopting all of them. I always wanted a big family. I’m not sure 4 qualifies as big but it’s more than 2. We are thick in Christmas time around here. The tree is up and decorated, the house is decorated, outside lights are up. A huge advantage is I had santa’s helpers (My former nannies) take my kids for the whole weekend so I could help Santa build all of the toys that needed to be built for some very special kids I know. The scene from SNL where Matt Damon kicks the dollhouse he was building, that sums it up Lol I can’t possibly build everything the night before it’s too much. Sidenote next time I’m getting the stores to build all of this sh**. NEVER AGAIN!

I’ve been dating a friend of mine, Jesse, for a few weeks now. She’s exactly what I need. We go out to dinner, we go see a movie here or there. She’s been my date to a few of the charity balls I attend. She loves it. I don’t know why I haven’t dated her before. I’ve known her for years but I think because she is friends with a certain ex of mine, that’s probably why. Not my ex-wife. I actually have an ex-girlfriend from way back. Jesse and her used to be very good friends and I’ve always kept in contact with both. Jesse doesn’t hang out with her that often anymore but they are both still friends. The ex-girlfriend and I used to screw around from time to time way before I started dating the woman I ended up marrying. It was one of those situations where I loved her, she loved me but our lives would never work. I kept going back to her because she was very smart and spiritual. We could talk for hours and all night long. We would see each other when we could but my traveling for work split us up. Now we just meet up for coffee after we drop the kids off at schools a few times a month. It’s nice and comfortable. We are much better friends….without the benefits. 

Are you guys ready for Christmas? I hope so. This time of year can be stressful. I have all of my gifts bought. I hired someone to figure it out Lol It’s cheating I know but I had input on each gift. That sort of counts. Honestly I’m doing that again next year. It made my life so much easier. Life with no  nannies is going okay. There are days I’m going nuts but I have a handle on this. When my new daughter arrives I will get a nanny. I am going to be adopting a girl. I like the 2 boys, 2 girls combo. Peace is young enough now she will really love her little sister. I think it will take about a year and a half or more to get through the whole adoption but just knowing there is a little girl out there somewhere on  her way to me soon, I love it!

Guys, I’m eating everything I see these days. I’m working out but it’s not enough. I can’t help it. So many awesome vegan Christmas treats this time of year. I can’t help myself. I will get back on track in the new year. I never pig out too much like this but I kind of have the idea that this year sucked. Let me eat cake!

I love you guys, I just uploaded about 150 photos to my family facebook page. Check out the latest photos of me and the kids. I put 1 photo of Jesse and I on there. She’s the gorgeous blonde in the white and sparkly ball gown. And yes I already know, I look damn good in my tux 🙂

Have a great week Batfans! I will update more soon.

  1. Before I start reading your post, I’ll comment on the new WordPress:

    This new Gutenberg editor is frustrating thousands, and was pushed out despite complaints from thousands of users and developers for MONTHS beforehand.

    And it’s only the beginning: WP is going to move the blocks into EVERYTHING. Widgets and menus will be blocks in the future. The Classic Editor plugin is supposed to get you back to the old editor, but it’s only temporary.

    I’ve been running my sites on ClassicPress. It’s a fork of WordPress that’s supposed to be Never Gutenberg. And the forums there are very active with users posting questions on how this is going to work in the long-term.
