Once Upon a Time...

Since several people told me they about died laughing at my recent Craigslist ad, I thought I would share. This is a true, sad, and somewhat pathetic story of my life. I did, however, find out today that at least one of my friends believed in me and my vampire slaying dream. *tear* Bless her heart.

The bag has now sold and is going to a group of young girls whose dreams are still alive and well.

Once upon a time I wanted to be Buffy the Vampire Slayer. To help aid me in this task, I thought I should get a punching bag to practice all my amazing karate chops and kicks and punches. You know what happens to dreams, though? Sometimes they die, especially when your friends and family inform you that you will never, not ever, be a vampire slayer. Also, the one and only time I tried to punch the darn thing it hurt my hand like a mother.

Therefore, without further adieu, I give you a practically brand spanking new punching bag. One hit, that's all it ever took. The good news is- it's in great shape. The bad news is- I don't have any idea where the chain it came with went. It probably died with my dreams.

Offers accepted.

I always try to be creative with my Craig's List ads too, but my wife imposes limits on how far I can go with it. It's probably better that way!

Fun ad. Just wanted to let you know that I still read all of your blog posts, even if I have been horrible about not checking twitter and not commenting on anything!

We're doing pretty well. The kids are excited for Christmas, and the adults are excited for tax return season.

I've been on a night schedule that has been sucking the life out of me. that should change soon-ish though, so all is well.

Ugh, that would be really tough. I'm glad it's coming to an end for you! I'm pretty excited for both Christmas and tax return season, as well. LOL!

It's so nice to hear from you. If I don't talk to you again soon, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
