life is good.

so a couple of stories for you from the last 9 days or so...
my wedding day:
about 11:30 am I start having back pains... I was golfing so I thought I threw out my back on my approach on the 9th hole. After 45 minutes or so of the pain growing greater and becoming increasingly uncomfortable, I notice my lower, right abdomen in great discomfort and pain as well... thinking my appendix will surely rupture at any second, I summon two friends (who were helping set up for the reception) to bring me to the nearest emergency room.... long story short: I had a kidney stone, passed it, made it to the chapel 45 minutes prior to wedding time, got hitched, the rest is history... good times, good story for the long haul..

fast-forward to last night:
I'm up at my dad's playing in the water with Andrew and David... we we're wrestling around and one of them accidentally pulls my wedding ring off in about 5 foot of mucky water... so... it's gone... if anyone knows a scuba-diver or has an under-water metal detector, please get a hold of me... I'm pretty bummed about it.

but besides that, married life has been pretty amazing... my wife packs me a lunch everyday for work, scratches my back, waters the flowers, etc. etc...

not everyone is this lucky...

I hope you enjoyed this segment of story time with uncle eric...

sorry dude.

what kind of metal is the ring?
(i'm wondering about magnetism)

is it literally five feet?
(i wonder if you could breathe through a hose at that depth)

Also, I suggest confessing the sin in your life.

This is my son...in whom.....I really, really, am well pleased. He is forgiving, apologetic, romantic...all the things he needs to be..........and I love him!! He is my heart. If you knew him like I did, you would want to be his mother. Too bad, God gave him to me first....can't have him....I will only share him with Jenny...and she's perfect too!!

I know Mariah likes bedtime stories from Uncle Eric--maybe you can tell her one later this week if you guys come over. She will love it.
