Four reasons visiting Des Moines isn't good for me, and two that I love!

1. I gained 5 pounds in 4 days.
2. I was stuck in a house the size of a postage stamp for three days with all four children, two dogs, and my lovely wife.
3. I have to hear about my father-in-law's new girlfriends (Yes, I said GIRLFRIENDS!)
4. I had to refrain from beating my sister-in-law's ass.

The reasons I love Des Moines.

1. Smitty's makes the best tenderloin EVAH!!!
2. I got to spend time with my lovely wife, and we weren't in a prison.

We didn't get to go there for a social call, my wife's grandmother (who she loved like a mom) passed on Monday afternoon. C and I have now put everyone on notice...we are getting off this roller coaster now! No one else is allowed to have a problem for a little bit, while we regain our bearings. And, we still didn't get to get married.


  1. Good tenderloin is worth enduring the GF stories. But a sister-in-law in need of an ass-whoopin' is hard to take. Kudos on your restraint.

  2. @Syd-I really, really did want to just hurt her badly but C called me away and I was forced to leave the whole thing alone. I just don't like people that cause drama at what is a very sad event. Leave it alone for crying out loud!!!
