2015 New Years 1080p Resolution

Busted Button:

My hubby blogs over at The Night Of The Living Dad :D

Originally posted on The Night of the Living Dad:

I was looking at this beautiful calendar my daughter bought me for Christmas when I realized it’s about the right time to be fashionably late for coming up with a New Year’s Resolution.


I was scrolling through some old posts of mine (yes, I really am that vain) when I realized that I really enjoyed writing them. So I says to myself, “Galen, old boy, you should start writing these more often. What the cuss, why not make a resolution of it to write at least one post a week?” So that’s the plan. Not every post will be long, but at least once a week something is going to happen on this blog. Anyone who is anyone will be clamoring to know what thenightofthelivingdad.com is up to. Wish me luck!
Also check out this mii fighter I made of myself on Super Smash Bros for WiiU. Check back soon…

Ohmagoodness! I haven’t blogged for two months! EEK! Bad blogger. I suppose with the crazy autistic kiddos and the newborn with kidney problems it’s just been easier to share my brain spillage with you on Facebook and Instagram.

P.S. I’m addicted to Instagram, and if you’d like to see sneak peeks and progress pics of my projects, ridiculous hashtags, or if you are interested in observing what I eat, be sure to follow me.

Oh, and my kids are doing fine, in case I worried you. Here is a photo of Flora dancing to Salt N Pepa’s ‘Push It’ to prove it to you:


It feels good to be back on here, so I figured I’d come back with a bang:


Oh, yes I did!

I made a button tree purse! FINALLY, hey? I’ve been wanting to make one of these since I did my very first button painting
