Hard to say- I'm only 32 years into this whole marraige thing so I'm not sure how its gonna work out. Being excited is probably a better sign than if you felt like you were dangling from the end of the hangman's rope every day since you proposed, though.

Marriage is not a word. It is a sentence--a life sentence.

Marriage is very much like a violin; after the sweet music is over, the strings are attached.

Marriage is love. Love is blind. Therefore, marriage is an institution for the blind.

Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his Bachelor's Degree and the woman gets her Masters.

Marriage is a thing which puts a ring on a woman's finger and two under the man's eyes.

Marriage certificate is just another word for a work permit.

Marriage is not just a having a wife, but also worries inherited forever.

Marriage requires a man to prepare 4 types of "rings":
* The Engagement Ring
* The Wedding Ring
* The Suffe-Ring
* The Endu-Ring

Married life is full of excitement and frustration:
* In the first year of marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens.
* In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.
* In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.

It is true that love is blind but marriage is definitely an eye-opener.

Getting married is very much like going to the restaurant with friends. You order what you want, and when you see what the other fellow has, you wish you had ordered that.

It's true that all men are born free and equal, but some of them get married!

There was this man who muttered a few words in the church and found himself married. A year later he muttered something in his sleep and found himself divorced.

A happy marriage is a matter of giving and taking; the husband gives and the wife takes.

Son: How much does it cost to get married, Dad?
Father: I don't know son, I'm still paying for it.

Son: Is it true? Dad, I heard that in ancient China, a man doesn't know his wife until he marries.
Father: That happens everywhere, son, everywhere!

There was a man who said, "I never knew what happiness was until I got married...and then it was too late!"

Love is one long sweet dream, and marriage is the alarm clock.

They say when a man holds a woman's hand before marriage, it is love; after marriage, it is self-defense.

When a newly married man looks happy, we know why. But when a ten-year married man looks happy, we wonder why.

There was this lover who said that he would go through hell for her. They got married, and now he is going through hell.

A gentleman is one who never swears at his wife while ladies are present.

A man must marry only a very pretty woman in case he should ever want some other man to take her off his hands. -- Guitry

Ah Mozart! He was happily married - but his wife wasn't. -- Borge

Always talk to your wife while you're making love... if there's a phone handy.

And I shall love thee still my dear, Until my wife is wise.

Bachelor: the only man who has never told his wife a lie.

By all means marry. If you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher. -- Socrates

Diplomat: A man who can convince his wife she would look stout in a fur coat.

Don't marry for money; you can borrow it cheaper.

English Law prohibits a man from marrying his mother-in-law. This is my idea of useless legislation.

He who knows nothing, knows nothing. But he who knows he knows nothing knows something. And he who knows someone whose friend's wife's brother knows nothing, he knows something. Or something like that.

Honolulu - it's got everything. Sand for the children, sun for the wife, sharks for the wife's mother. -- Ken Dodd

Husband: a man who buys his football tickets four months in advance and waits until December 24 to do his Christmas shopping.

An update on me...

On Monday, Amanda and I moved into our new apartment in Medina, Ohio. She is still in Grad School at Akron and I am still working in Elyria. Medina is the perfect half-way point for both of us.

The unpacking is moving right along and I'm sure we will have our home just how we want it within a few weeks. I thought it would be tough getting up a full hour earlier than I have been for the last year and a half but it hasn't been too bad.

We are just about 160 days away from the wedding and things are looking good. We had some awesome engagement pictures taken which you can see on facebook and the same people will be doing our wedding pictures. If you need a recommendation on a photographer, I would HIGHLY suggest ours...Essence of Love Photography.

So, all in all, things are going well and I couldn't be happier...let's just pray it stays that way!

Aaaaaaaand Married!!! Amanda and I made things official this past Saturday and everything went perfectly smooth! It was just as we planned and we had the time of our lives. There are already some pictures on facebook from friends and family and we're hoping to have our professional photos back sometime in the near future.

I am currently looking for new employment as the Credit Union has turned into a house of drama, disorganization, unprofessionalism and other things that make for a bad working environment. I've got some feelers out and am always looking for something new to take on. Hope everyone else is doing well! Go Falcons!!!

Well, leaving the Credit Union hasn't worked out yet but they did promote me! I now have my own office and am working on Loans and other personal banking business. Amanda is working downtown at a Recruiting Firm where she schedules flights, hotels and interview times for out-of-town interviews. She is loving that and we are trying to look for a place to live somewhere in the Lakewood area so if anyone knows of anything, let me know! Hopefully we will get to a couple games this fall and some basketball in the winter months. Hope everyone is doing well!

At this point, Anything that will be a pay increase. I am hard working and I strive to be the best at whatever I'm doing. My skill set is pretty broad so I'm just looking for something that challenges me a bit and keeps me busy.

The wife and I moved this past weekend, back to my hometown of Elyria. Medina was nice for a little while but the 54 mile round-trip commute got old really quick, especially in the winter. So now I am just a couple miles away from work and Amanda, who is working in downtown Cleveland, is about 10 miles closer than we were in Medina. The amount of money we are going to save in gas alone is going to be great.

We got a great apartment near downtown Elyria. It's a renovated 100-year old building with all hardwood floors, a non working fireplace, a HUGE dining room and a patio. I absolutely love it! I foresee us being in this place for quite a bit of time, maybe even until our first child happens.

Still looking for a new job with more income and may have to go back to working 2 jobs here soon. Just have to find something that will work around my 9-5. We're hoping to get to BG for at least 1 football game this fall, preferrably two or three but we will see how that goes.

Just back from a great vacation and also a week in which I ran TWO 5K's...On the 4th of July, I ran in the Pace for Poverty in Richland, Michigan and ran a 23:04 with a pace of 7:26. It was such a flat course, I probably should have finished it a lot quicker and had a huge burst of speed at the very end of the race that I could have used a lot sooner. This bested my Personal Record by almost two full minutes. I was pumped.

Then, on Saturday morning, I ran in the 2nd Annual Kerstetter 5K and crushed the course with a 22:15! I honestly did not expect to run it that quickly as the course has some 3 hills to go up, one of which is a 2 tiered hill and is very steep. Also ended up 1st in my age bracket and 46th overall out of over 500 registered runners.

I think I'm ready to tackle a 10K as long as it's on a flat course. If anyone else out there likes to run, let me know and maybe we can organize an Ay-Ziggy-Zoomba group to run together some time!

There was a time when I would run, but I would definitely need to get back into it. I ran in the 4-mile race in Fremont, the Camelback, with a 32:52. Now, I probably couldn't make a mile without having to walk. It is certainly one of my goals.

Gave it up long ago with the exception of when I visit a new city- like to run three or four to see the town by foot. 7:17 pace is decent, especially if you are fairly new to running. Only run a couple of 5 Ks-mostly tens: PR around 36 and change but that was in my late twenties. Last race I ran was a five K in just under 24 8 years ago but I hadn't run in years and only had a month to train. My buddy's ten year old beat me badly. Of course he's a miler for MSU now so I don't feel too badly.

A Whole Lot of Updates!

GOODBYE CREDIT UNION!!!!! For about 3 and a half months now, I have been working at my new career with United Consumer Financial Services as a Manager for the West Coast divisions of Kirby Distributors! I've already been out to California once for business purposes and will be heading back there again at the end of September. I love this new job, it was a great pay increase and I am the happiest I have been in a long, long time. Many sour grapes were passed around the Credit Union when I left and it just reinforced my decision.

As for the personal stuff...As I mentioned in a post on the Football forum, my wife, Amanda, and I are expecting our first child in January! We are extremely excited and I can't wait to bring this kid into the world with a love for all things Orange and Brown! We are not going to find out the gender this time around but any Falcon gear is welcomed with open arms!

Speaking of Amanda, she has a new job as well! She had been working as a Temp for 2 years with Towers-Watson in downtown Cleveland working in HR. She recently accepted a similar position with PolyOne in Avon Lake. She also got a nice pay raise so things are really looking up for us.

Oh, and to top it all off, we bought a house! That was actually first on the list of "The Most Stressful Things You Can Do in Life." We are 3 blocks away from my parents (which is great for walking home from the Pub in his basement) and 6 blocks away from my grandmother...and a few blocks away from Freak's In-Laws!

So, to recap...April-House May-Pregnant and New Job for Me. June-New Job for Amanda...Now to get back to the running so I don't blow up to 260 pounds again! Yeesh!

I don't really want to tell you how to go about your business, but once they're born, if you look between their legs, it's pretty easy to tell.

Seriously, congratulations with all the stressful stuff going on. My daughter (HS freshman) recently informed me that she wants to go to BG. It was pretty hard to contain my joy as I told her to make sure to keep all her options open. . .
