I will get more into what I am going to do with this side project later…I want to share something that I have had to learn over the years. I was not taught how to be a go-getter, I was pretty much trained in the art of sittin' on my butt watchin’ the boob tube. But when I became an adult (and maybe a little before) I realized that I had very high aspirations and sitting around doing nothing wasn’t going to get me anywhere or anything that I wanted.

Being an adult, or a parent, or both in my case…there are things that I just have to do. Things that I don’t really want to do, things that I don’t have time to do. And being an aspiring musician with 5 kids and a wife, that is a lot more things I don’t want to do than I ever realized I would have. Things like dishes, cleaning up bathrooms and toilets, taking out the trash, etc. Of course we all do these things, but if you are like me…you’ve let them slip while trying to get other “more important” things done.
