1/20/14 -- 2013 was great, and I'm working for even better in 2014.
Took up running, and completed one half marathon a month Sept-Dec,
and I got to officiate my first high school playoff game in
7/25/2013 --This is in bad need of an update (including a few more
pics). The last year has brought progress in getting out and it's
been great. More later, or message me now and ask away...
As everyone says, and I am finding out now, filling out a profile
is harder than it looks. Maybe I should have some friends give me
some 3rd party input. In short, after my marriage ending years ago
and focusing only on my kids for that time, I have made it a
resolution (I would call it a New Year's Resolution, but unlike a
NY resolution that you start and quit three months in, I talked
about for three months before starting) to step out of my comfort
zone and "put myself out there" in 2012. I have three kids that are
the center of my life. For too long I have closed myself off to
another relationship, but I would like to start explore that
possibility and meet some new people, make some friends, and see
What I’m doing with my life
Activities with my kids and work. Seems too simple, but that is
about sums it up. I have coached a lot of their teams, and I have
gone to a lot of practices, and that is a big part of my time. I
try to keep them as busy as they keep me. This winter was a lot of
skiing, and I am looking forward to transitioning into some camping
this summer. From 8-5 (and when ever else a customer calls), I work
as an account manager for a management company. I really enjoy what
I do, but being a Dad and my kids define me more than what I do for
I’m really good at
I'm back to thinking I need some help from my friends....
I think that I am good at being calm in a storm, and being logical
in my thought processes. I work hard at being the best Dad I can
be, and if I say so myself, I am good at that.
The first things people usually notice about me
I'll take a poll, and get back to you on this one.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I haven't read too many books that I don't enjoy. Thanks to my
7th/8th grade English teacher I have had the habit of having a book
available at all times, so the list is long. I especially love
historical fiction. I am a movie fan as well (that started when I
worked @ a movie theater as a projectionist in college). Music is
about as diverse as anything, but usually starts with Alternative,
then depends on the mood from there.
I don't watch a lot of TV, but when I do (suddenly I sound like the
Dos Equis guy), I like to watch The Amazing Race or Survivor,
House, or Modern Family. I used to watch most of the Law &
Order's regularly. Most of my TV is OnDemand.
The six things I could never do without
A book in progress
Internet access (I could do a week without, say on vacation)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Keeping all the balls in the air at the same time. I like to be
planning the next season's activities and getaways while doing the
ones planned already (ie skiing now, while planning dates for
camping and the Cedar Point Season Passes for this summer).
On a typical Friday night I am
Oddly enough right now, most Friday's are quiet and at home, but
that is because most other nights are otherwise occupied. In the
fall, I try to fill them up with HS football. I am a HS Football
official, and if I don't have a game to officiate, then I am
looking for one to film for our association's evaluation program,
or attending the kid's school game if it is at home.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Those come with time, but for now, wondering how this online dating
thing is going to go, makes me nervous. Who will be interested?????
