What Does a Stay at Home Father Do All Day? (part 2)

My first post on what I do all day was one of the most popular posts from June and I decided to write another one. The motivation for this wasn't to drive even more traffic to this widely successful blog, which sometimes gets tens of tens of views in a single day, but more personal. I found that if I'm telling people what I did then I want it to be something I'm proud of. I want it to be a list of things that I would put on a billboard or business card or LinkedIn profile if I had one of those.

Like the last post there was almost no television although I was hopping on Twitter more than I would have thought. Here's my day for Tuesday, September 24th.

600. Woke up and made coffee and a small bowl of uncooked quick oats. I was looking at nutrition labels and thinking about cost of food and decided that oats might be the best food. I usually add some raisins or nuts to go along with my coffee.

I sat down to write. I added 800 words to a piece of fiction I'm crawling through and tried to edit a 1200 word essay to around 950. At first I thought it would be impossible to cut it down from its perfect state, but the more I looked, the easier it got.

Thanks Mom and Dad!

Last year on Thanksgiving I made a big list of everyone I knew and thanked them each for something. I was going to do this again, but almost all of them would be the same as last year.

Instead I'm going to talk about my parents a little bit, since they've surely had a bigger influence on me than anyone else.

A lot of the good habits I have today, which essentially define who I am, come directly from my parents. They managed to steer me away from TV, drugs, and alcohol in such a way that I never considered rebelling by indulging in these things.
