Lost Wages

Sitting here in a crappy hotel room in Las Vegas - again.

Not sure how I keep ending up in this hellhole, but I'm thinking it just might finally be my last visit ever.

The only reason I am here now is that Stacia's dad Gordon and step-mom Louise are in from Oahu for vacation.  It's been great to see them and get them to meet Ava Kalea too.  Just by 'coincidence', Stacia's 'besties' were in town too and while it was good to see them, for some reason, the breastfeeding mom of a 5 month old in a strange hotel decided that she needed to go clubbing with her friends until past 2:30am on Saturday night.

Meanwhile, Ava screamed.  And she screamed.  And she screamed.  She would not take formula.  She missed her mommy.  She missed her bed.  And she screamed.

I took her for walks around the block for over an hour.  We got back.  She was asleep.  For a short time.  Then she woke and screamed again - waking hotel neighbors and eventually causing people to start knocking on our door and telling us to shut up.

She went to sleep again, waking screaming about about 2:30am.  I who had been up since 4:05 in the morning, driving for work and then driving to Vegas, then listening to the screaming baby dragged my tired and crabby ass out of a warm bed to get the screaming Ava Kalea back into the car seat for more walks around the block.

I was so pissed that Stacia would not even bother to call to see how Ava was doing - and even more pissed that she'd stay out until past 2:30 in the morning.  I was so pissed, that on the way out the door, I told Makaya that if his mom did not show up before 4am, she could meet us back in San Diego.

I'm still pissed at Stacia for her lack of consideration for Ava, Makaya, myself and all the hotel guests that Ava kept up while screaming for comfort.  She had the nerve to 'apologize' to me by saying 'I'm sorry that YOU had a difficult time last night'.  I knew that she was just trying to bait me, so I just did not even say a thing.

If Stacia still wants to put clubbing with her 'besties' over taking care of our baby, I have made a grave mistake ...  I just don't think it is right for a mom of a 5 month old to be out past 2:30 in the morning with her friends instead of taking care of her baby.  I don't understand why she would do that at all - with absolute zero concern for anyone else.

Then to apologize for ME having a tough time ......

This could be the beginning of the end.  I don't put up with this BULLSHIT!

Money is a tool that flows freely in great abundance.

Aloha from Kaneohe Hawaii!

Aloha from Kaneohe Hawaii!  I'm sitting on the back patio at Patty's mom's house in my shorts with no shirt, watching the rain pour down.  It's kind of cold for here - probably around 72 (weather on iPhone says 73 - so that was a pretty good guess).  I was sent here for work, which rented me a cheap room in Waikiki, but when invited to stay here, the choice was simple.

I've been meaning to start writing again, but just haven't got myself to do it up until now.  I worked a Vitamix show at Costco in Waipahu for 17 days that ended the day before Memorial Day.  It was definitely tough working before open to close for 17 straight days and sales were not close to what I was hoping for.

I have a few days off before starting a short 4 day inline show at the Costco in Hawaii Kai on Thursday.

It's been great to be able to spend time with my friends Ray and Patty.  As always, they show me an uncalled for and unfathomed amount of love and Aloha.  I am greatly humbled and at times have a difficult time understanding their kindness.

I've been to Hawaii many, many times in the past - but just on this trip am starting to 'get' the real meaning of Aloha.  Learning, feeling and living Aloha really has me wanting to move here more than ever.

Been writing and thinking way too much of myself - my beautiful wife Stacia is pregnant!  Our baby girl Ava Kalea Kennedy is due to arrive in September - and I am super excited!  I know Stacia is too!  It has been difficult to be away from them - and Makaya too!

Life is not without it's hardships - and one of the hardest things that I have ever experienced is being away from and not being able to talk to Jacqueline, who is now going by the name Nataliya.  Not sure if she realizes it, but I actually gave her that part of her middle name in honor of the Nataliya who introduced Jackie's mom and I.

Yesterday we visited Ray and Patty's friends Mark and Michelle who were stay-cationing at Koolina resort with their daughter Mia and Michelle's parents.  They are super nice people and Mia is 12 just like Nataliya.  I could not help but think that they could be great friends.  If only ....

I know Makaya doesn't want to move here, but it would be really cool if we could.  It looks like I may have a chance to work more shows here with Vitamix (but I really need to do better with sales to make it work).  I'm also looking for other opportunities here on the island (and in San Diego) as well, so my options are open at this point.  I'm feeling very drawn to starting some kind of business - but at this point, I just don't know which direction to go.  I guess the universe will point me in the right direction when the time is right ....  until then, I will just try to keep writing.

Not sure if anyone reads this stuff, but if you do, please leave me a comment and let me know where you are in the world and your life journey - and if there is any way I can be of assistance.

Aloha!

Besides always offering all businesses to submit their own press releases, Bellevue Business Journal also offers a press release writing service to local businesses.

So Much Has Changed, My Love for Nataliya Kennedy Has Not

I guess I might be a little distracted.  Just a little.  Focus has not yet become a strong suit - but I am getting better each day.

I hadn't visited this blog in a quite awhile - and would have never guessed that I had not posted in almost a year .....  A lot has changed in that year.  My daughter quit talking to me.  I got married.  My wife is pregnant (and we are expecting our first child together in September).  We moved to San Diego (my home for most of the last 30+ years and where my daughter was born).

Looking for Great Recipes Healthy, Tasty or Healthy AND Tasty?

Great Recipes healthy vs tastyGreat Recipes Needed for Family Dinners


Since adopting a tradition of Sunday family dinners I need to try new great recipes.  What the heck - I've got live guinea pigs to experiment on ...

I'm still not sure if I should be looking for great recipes that are healthy, or should just focus on making great recipes that are tasty.  I'm on a clean eating live-it most of the time, but I'm ok with an occasional 'cheat meal'.  I'd prefer to serve people (especially family and friends) healthy food, but also want to make sure that it is something that they will eat and enjoy.

No Smoking Bellevue: If You Are Caught Smoking, You Better Be On Fire

I really hate inconsiderate cigarette smokers. Maybe because both my parents smoked more than a pack a day when I was a kid (and are suffering from health problems as a result). Maybe because I got in inhale A LOT of their second hand smoke (this was before they came up with a name for it). It's probably just because cigarette smoke smells HORRIBLE!

Cigarette smoke gives me a headache and makes me feel like crap. I hate the way cigarette smoke stinks. If smokers only knew ...

At any rate this video is about my plan next time someone comes and smokes a cigarette under my balcony at The Ridge in Bellevue. Watch the No Smoking Bellevuevideo to see my plan and then let me know what YOU would do.  1) If you were a smoker who got squirted with water and 2) If you had to constantly smell the smoke from somebody else's butts.
