Sharp Dressed Man

With a new ownership coming into play at my work one of the first things that they have put into place is a more business orientated dress code. Over the last few years there has been a steady deteriation of our dress standards at work as we moved to a more business casual style. So as I began my search for new suits I found myself struggling with the off the rack retailers, nothing seemed to fit and it was difficult to get the service that I really wanted. All I really wanted was a Made to Measure Suit that would suit my style and fit the way I like it too. The MySuit Experience walked me through the discovery of what I found comfortable in a suit from the cut to the fabric. For me I prefer a single button suit jacket with pleated pant in a dark fabric with small pin stripes. Using a service like my suit allows you to make an appointment for fitting right over the internet and they provide a wide assortment of fabric, colors and styles to they can match up to whatever style suits you. They can provide your custom suit in as little as 2 weeks at fantastic prices ranging from $499+.

Preparing for a trip

What would you do if your were going to be away from home on Halloween weekend? We are setting up timers around the house for the lights, have talked with our neighbors to have them watch our home and we are forwarding the home phone to our cell so we can catch the calls that come into the house. Do you have any tips to help protect your home when you are away?

Van Frustrations

I am having a hard time with my van lately, I have had it in for various work 3 times in a row and still haven't been able to get all the work done. Now of course my warranty is running out and I am trying to get all the little things fixed before it does. Again today I didn't get everything finished up and I will have to take it back in again for more work.

With the leaves turning colors it would make for a beautiful trip back home to visit our family. We have a trip planned for the 1st of November but after the rain and high winds we have been having I am not expecting there to be many leaves left on the trees. This will be unfortunate as our trip back home last fall was late and we missed out on the beautiful scenery.
The weather has been so cold here that the heat has been turned up and it's time to unpack the kids winter jackets, boots and mittens which are all definite signs of winter.

Going on a trip

I heading off on business meetings for a few days, this is usually hard for the kids as they are used to having me around to tuck them in at night. It's especially busy now because my wife is working nights too so they will have a sitter tucking them in at night for the next couple of nights. Luckily I only have to go to meetings every few months.

Fundraising is done

I have spent the better part of the last 2 weeks helping my daughter sell tickets for spaghetti dinners at a local restaurant. This is all being done so she can afford the trip down to New Yorkk next year with her dance group. She is very excited to go and did a good job helping to sell tickets. Her deposit is paid today and that was a big deal, now she will have other fundraisers to come that will take up my time but it is all worth it to see her excited face. Her mother will get all the glory by being able to go on the trip with her but I know we all worked together to make it happen for her.

Getting Cheap Airfare

With the speed of travel these days anything you can do to make it easier to find you. The competition between airlines is getting more fierce and the real winner in all of this are the people making the flights. A new tool can be used to help people find the quickest airport route to your destination. The Cheap Flights Map Widget is a fantastic tool that will show the fastest route and than search for the cheapest flights between the two points. The service is available in 20 languages and can be installed on your site for free. The "sky scanner" service is a great tool for hotels as it allows them to fix the destination point and allows the customer to enter their departure point. For airports they can use the service to fix their departure point and potential customers can enter their destination point. My wife and daughter are planning a trip to New York next spring with her dance group and the school trip co-coordinator has used the service to find their best flight options. The tool is easy to install and very easy to use you can be up and running in just a few minutes. The Skyscanner service compares the prices of over 300,000 flights from over 600 airlines to ensure you have the best offers available.

Movie Night

With my wife at work for the evening I got the kids to work getting the house cleaned up. They did a great job of helping without complaigning so I surprised them with a movie night after we were done. I had to rob a movie from our Christmas movie stash but it can be replaced with another one. The kids were excited to see a new movie and we had a nice night together. Mr. Magorium was pretty funny and we really enjoyed it.

Mommy I miss You!

Well after a long afternoon with the kiddies I finally got them all off to bed. Mommy was at work and they are still getting used to her not being around every night at bed time. It's getting better for the most part and we are getting better on working together and building routine. Tonight Blake had a moment of realization that Mom really was gone, the first couple of nights that Carrie worked I would get him out of bed to go and get her, the other kids would be asleep and Jay would watch out for them. Tonight was the first night that Carrie took the van to work so we wouldn't have to go get her. When I was tucking Blake into bed tonight he asked if I would get him up to get Mom and I told him we wouldn't have to tonight he wasn't happy. He said we needed to go walk down and get the van so we could go back and pick her up. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN BUDDY. It was dark, bedtime and on top of that raining so an hour walk to get the van wasn't in the cards. I got him settled after a while but he came out with a noose bleed and we had to deal with that get him all changed and back to bed. Well I went up to change over some laundry a few minutes ago and this is what I found at the top of his stairs. He's a cute little fellow, all tucked in bed now it's time for me to turn in for the night. :0) Vacation is over :0( but I did get the molding done in the bathroom.

Life under the microscope a Sarah Palin Story

I picked this clip up at methodshop thanks for the laugh. What a rough couple of week's it has been in the Presidential Campaign of McCain/Palin. This video is a skit from SNL but the scary thing is how close it actually was to the interview between Palin and Katie Couric. It's scary to think of what the other vice presidential candidates McCain had to pick from if this was the most capable person his team could come up with. I feel bad for Palin she sure is taking it on the chin from the media through this campaign. McCain shut his campaign down for the week to deal with the economic crisis in the states, humm I'm not so sure if it was that or to slap his team around and come up with a damage control plan. Good Luck.

New York, New York

My excited daughter is going on a trip next summer to New York with her mother and the dance school she attends. Now my wife wasn't letting her go all on her own to the big city so she will be going as a chaperone/assistant for the group. Now this type of trip isn't going to be cheap so they will be doing lots of fundraising over the next 6 months or so. They have to have their deposit ready to go for the end of October, $35o each so we will be digging deep to come up with the necessary funds to get their place secured.

The Make Up Gift

Well, as I mentioned I really let my wife down the other night, with no excuses I had to come up with something to seal my apology. I know she was looking for a new camera since summer vacation when her camera got broken(nothing to do with me). She had her eye on a pink sony camera so while we were out shopping this morning I picked one up for her. I know she will enjoy this little pink bundle of joy for years and we will have lot's of great family pictures to share.

Education Online

In today's demanding society in which we are all time-stressed it is becoming even harder to keep up our education levels up to our potential. Once the demands of bills and families come into play it becomes more difficult to just stop everything and focus on our education. The day to day expenses sometimes demand long hours of work and leave little time to think about education. In the last number of years there have been more alternatives for people to increase their education and acquire their university and master degree's using online university services. Capella University is a fully accredited, online university that delivers world class education at your convience. Their curriculm is specifically designed to work for people that need flexibility in their education growth.

Flying Solo

Well I have survived the first week of my wife being back to work, almost with out any disasters. I have been struggling getting any sleep thanks to the puppy that wants to go out to "P" 2-3 times in the night. Usually once I wake up it takes me a 1/2 hour to 1 hour to get back to sleep so if you do the math I have only been getting about 4 hours of sleep a night for the last few months. It all came to a head Wednesday when I also had to go to work early so I got up at 5 losing another 2 hours of sleep. I worked all day and than traveled the kids around to their activities. By the time I got home it was almost 9 and I put the kids to bed and decided I wasn't going to do anything so I sat on the couch until picking my wife up at 11. Oops I fell asleep and was so exhausted I didn't hear the phone ringing to go get her until 11:36. Needless to say she was pissed and I certainly don't blame her one bit. I was very disappointed in myself for letting her down.
