Can't Sleep... Need a change in my life.

I am laying here in my normal state for 12:30 in the morning:

1. I can't sleep
2. I have bored myself with every form of entertainment on my phone.
3. I am bored with late-night t.v. (We only have 8 channels.

So....

I've decided to force my hand on something that's been bugging me for months.

Let me start off by saying this, I am really happy with my life. I have a great family and I am pretty happy with my effort in making it continue to improve. We are fairly ok with money and again we are making "mostly" good decisions on that front and things continue to improve. Physically I am in decent shape (little too flabby) but not doing horrible on that front. All in all I dig my life. But, it turns out that's what has been bugging me.

I like it enough that I have kinda settled with where its at right now.

I want to be better! I want to be a better husband, father, provider, everything. I want to spend more time with my wife. I want to spend more time being a Dad. I want to be in better shape. I really want to improve the look and shape of our house. I'm pissed I haven't started the garden we have been talking about for the last 3 years.

Basically... I've got a list and I am pissed off enough with myself for not getting to it that I decided write it all out here so you guys can punk me if I don't have progress to report.

Feel free to use the comments section if you want to list things that you want to get done. Airing goals out in public really drives me to actually take the first steps towards getting the process started.

Sorry... Kinda a boring post. :)

  1. I just want you to know the word verification that popped up is "dullness."

    You're driven to be outstanding. That's good. And now we're watching, and you know it. That's even better.

  5. The last time you got bored and wanted to do bigger/better things, we ended up running a 2300 seat concert arena.
    [Note to self] *Fill up Cody's honey-do list, so that he doesn't have time to get bored.

  6. I'll committ to helping you with the garden. Maybe if we help each other with similar tings we are more likely to get them done? What about jsut taking some time everyday for some appreciation for the things you've got? Kinda like taking it from the short term memory to the hard drive?
