Got everything shipped and ran to pick up J, get gas and deliver the packages. Home and we had dinner, D is working for a couple of hours at D-Bats, J helped me install a new modem for the house. On the phone with the cable co trying to get things working and headed to G's game, it was not pleasant with the cable co. they got my order wrong... Finally got things straightened out with the cable co, J's internet working again and scored G's game in a slippery LOUD gym.

L had a nice dinner for us, D got up at 11:30 and didn't find a job today... J had track until late, ran another 5 miles in this cold today... G had a Dr. visit for a follow up shot. After dinner Bill & Tom stopped by and we got a bunch of admin stuff done for the baseball team and caught up a bit. When they left D&I headed to the post office and gym, apparently D did not close original gym membership correctly and his account has been sent out for collections and it will cost $107 to clear his account so he can go to the gym by himself... memberships are only $10/mo... (bang my head)... We worked out for a bit and then headed home. Little boys already in bed and I followed suit.


20181211 - Up in the am and dropped J off at school and headed in to work. Discovered D was up watching movies all night and even though I pay for multiple movie on demand services that offer over 40k movies, D decided that at 3:30 am he would buy a movie to watch using the credit card attached to my Amazon account... Day went fast at work, home and ate. After dinner D took G to batting practice so he could work out a bit too. While he was there he called to let me know he broke his $400 baseball bat... I headed to the Scout Board of Review, we had one kid and discussed being the committee for a girls troop... Home and up late.

20181204 - Up in the am and dropped G off at school for his Bible study and then J on the way in to work. Got in to work and getting things done so I can get out of here half a day. Tried to get as much done as possible before heading to the Mid-Ohio Foodbank to volunteer the rest of the day. It was a bit chaotic at first but then we started getting a lot of things done. At one point I was putting food in peoples carts and gave out lots of extras. Had a good time doing it and the time went fast. Headed home through Grove City traffic, which is still horrible... Got home and L cooked us all dinner.

We ate and then L&G headed to his hitting practice and I had J drive me down Hamilton to Broad to High St. downtown and up to Nationwide Area where we took in an exciting Blue Jackets game.

Worked straight through lunch in a super fast morning and trying to slow things down to get done what I need to get done today... Had a conversation with the President of the Boosters on my level of involvement... he is ok with it. Finished up the day reasonably well and headed home. Only home a second before I had to run and pick J up from his first day of indoor track. Home and we all sat down to eat. L ran G to basketball and J and I finished up and tried to clean up the kitchen. I headed into the office and L came in to help ship. Took J to Scouts and had a talk with Rob and Jason about my level of involvement there... they are ok with it. Ran to pick G up at basketball. Back to Scouts and J&G with merit badge counselor and I sold some baseball discount cards and chatted with the guys. After Scouts J drove us to the Post Office and G ran the packages in.

J&I shipped ebay stuff and then he drove to the Post Office, gas station and we swung through Kroger to get some nuts and dried fruit for me to take to work. We saw Bill there and chatted a second. Home and I got some more stuff done while J&G played on the Xbox until their arguing with each other through the Xbox and I could hear them from both upstairs and downstairs yelling at each other forced me to disconnect the network for my own sanity...  I made them eat and then G&I headed to Johnstown for his basketball game. G didn't shoot much today but played very well. The boys won easily and we headed home. We all ate and then JG&I sat at the table finishing up Scout stuff. When we got to a stopping point we headed in to the living room and watched a cute Christmas movie.  All to bed in good time.

20181201 - G on the Court

20181201 - Up in the am and J helped me ship stuff in ebay. We got it all packed up and J drove to deliver them to the Post Office and then headed across town to Reynoldsburg to pick up some auction items. We headed back across town the back-way to hit Meijer so J could do some Christmas shopping. Home and got L&G's for his basketball game, J stayed home. G did good at his game and they boys won. The only excitement was someone barfed on the court...  no one admitted to it... Swung through KFC on the way home. Home and we ate, L did some laundry J&G played on the Xbox and I got some things done in the office until time to watch the OSU vs Northwestern Big 10 Championship game. D texted, he heard a hissing noise and found a piece of metal in his tire on his way into Buffalo Wings. Didn't get it fixed right away... had to put on his spare... It was a great game, except for the 3rd quarter, but not sure it is enough to get the Buckeyes into the playoffs.
