  • Making Time for One Another

    Miss Gator and I spend a lot of time working. I work 70 hours/week between three different web programming contracts/jobs,  Miss Gator is in her final semester of grad school (and still manages to keep the house tidy), and we’re planning a wedding. Trust me, we don’t get a whole lot of truly free time.

    When we do get some free time, however, we like to spend it together either watching a Netflix movie on-demand (or the shiny disc kind), watching recorded TV shows that have been sitting on our DVR for weeks, playing with Kuma, our adorable Bengal, driving around aimlessly trying to find somewhere to dine out at, shopping for random stuff, or even playing board games.

    Tonight, in lieu of not really caring too much about who wins the Super Bowl (even though I sorta despise the Colts), we played some good ol’ fashioned Monopoly.

    As you can see, I have all the money and all the properties. Miss Gator has a bunch of mortgaged properties and no money. She is the loser.

    Miss Gator was the little Scotty. He was no match for …

    … the infallible Monopoly Car.

    Moral of the Story:
    Take a minute or two out of your day (and as often as possible, really) to spend it with the one you care the most about. If Miss Gator and I didn’t do that, we’d probably go insane—well, more insane than we already are.

    It was nice blogging for guys this week. You can rejoice that Miss Gator should return to her loyal readers very soon. I’ll keep posting from time-to-time so keep you eyes open.
