Eh…since I’ll be renewing this puppy on the 28th, I figured I need to do something with it.  What will I do?  I want to see if I can keep myself in check, to be a better person.  Be a better husband, father, son, employee, and friend.  Can I?  Will I?  Man, I hope so.  Man, I do have the best of plans, don’t I? 

Anyways, I’m trying to control my addictions, I’m trying to watch what I eat, and I’m trying to exercise a lot more.  Now, saying I’m going to do something means shit.  However, over the past week +, I’ve:

– Not bought one action figure (which is saying something)
– Have only ate out once (which is highly impressive)
– Ate light at lunches
– Went out on a jog.

It’s not a lot, but it’s past tense, and not something that I’m going to be doing, if that makes sense.  I want to be better, so hopefully this will be more of a recap than a plan.  So, wish me the best.  I need some encouragement.  My mother-in-law is coming over tonight to help with the boys, so I’m hoping she can help occupy them so I can go on a run.  But, we’ll see.  I have to work on the yard and mow, so, just a matter of what I can fit in. 

As for my addiction, I’m trying to cut down as best as possible.  There’s a new wave of G.I. Joe figures that is hitting, that I want to get, and there’s a He-Man figure that I’m going to try to get off of, but other than that, I’m good for a while.  I’ve got another web site that I started to talk about toys, so if you’re even remotely interested in that, you can check out  It doesn’t really help me cutting back on toys, but it’s an avenue to let me geek out. :) 

…I don’t think that entire paragraph made any sense…  No matter.

So, here I am again, trying to see what I can do.  Hopefully I can be a better Jay.  I need to be.  Here’s hoping.
