This Friday started off with Drew waking up at 5:30am and one of Autumn’s employees calling in, causing her to close tonight and probably work tomorrow. I get to work and in desperate need of coffee, no creamer upstairs. So I venture downstairs to get some much needed creamer, taking the elevator which is really rare and Ken bumps into me (not really his fault, just an accident) so I wind up wearing coffee.. Hopefully it gets better from here, or at least levels out..
I can’t belive that today my son turned 1 year old.
This has been the most amazing year of my life, I owe it all to my wonderful wife and of course Andrew.
Wicca devotee Chris Jones wants to clear the air about the symbols of Samhain, or “the night where the veil between life and death is the thinnest.”

Welcome to Autumn, happy Mabon!
“Today, daylight and nightdark are equal.
From tomorrow on, the nights will be longer than the days.
The cool winds of fall have chased summer’s heat.
The leafs die in gold and fire.
May the journey to begin,
the journey into dark and foggy nights,
be the a journey on your paths within,
which lead to your inner light.”

This is a nice write up of the Autumnal Equinox.
For the last two weeks, Autumn and I have been on the South Beach diet.
We read the book first to make sure we got off to a good start, and started on August 27th.
As of September 10th, I’ve lost 12lbs. Autumn has lost 10 lbs. I feel better and all my clothes fit better. We are continuing with a combination of Phase 1 & 2. We have eliminated most sugars and all white flour from our diet and lives. In the process of this diet, we have been eating more organic foods, and most of the recipes we have found for South Beach, are really good and make eating more enjoyable. Last night we had whole grain spaghetti and organic spaghetti sauce, with whole grain bread and spices. Similar to what Carrabba’s gives you with their bread.
I have not been drinking anything but; water, Arizona No Carb Green tea, light Lemonade, and occasionally some Coke Zero. I began the diet drinking diet Coke and Pepsi, which made me ill, I don’t like diet soda…. When I stopped drinking it, I felt a lot better.
I would recommend to anyone looking to lose weight, or even just eat right, to go pick up Dr. Arthur Agaston’s South Beach Diet Book at your library, or hell even buy it. If you’re too busy to read a book, it’s on two cds as well.
And no, this isn’t a paid advertisement. 😉
Well, Autumn got a new job a couple weeks ago, and today is her last day. She doesn’t start at the new job until Thursday, so we had planned to take tomorrow off. We also thought perhaps Jim would have his trial and we could be there if it wasn’t another continuance. About the same time, Tivo, yes Tivo, emailed me and asked me with about 15 others in the Tampa Bay area, to be in a commerical. For our Time we would get this.
But the time they want to do it is tomorrow at 8:30 in new Port Richey, they are closing off an entire street, and Jim’s trial is the same time. So what do we do? Go to the trial.
It would have been cool to be in a commerical, but it isn’t right to not be there.
