We haven’t even celebrated Halloween yet, but I am already getting the family into the Christmas spirit this morning. I always complain about how early the stores put out Christmas trees and decorations; I saw a few companies setting out snow globes and ornaments during their Labor Day sales. But, this year is different and it’s all because of August Burns Red’s Christmas Album “Sleddin’ Hill”.
I like to start my Monday mornings off right by waking up and then logging on. Am I right Tom?
There usually isn’t a lot happening on Monday mornings. I browse through a News Feed full of people complaining about going to work and doing laundry, when…
“what to my wandering eyes should appear,
but an e-mail from Best Buy, announcing my cd is here”
Like any good father would do, I left my children strapped into their high chairs, eating their Honey Nut Scooters, as I trekked out to get the mail. The slim cardboard package confirmed my hopes and I floated on a cloud of heavy metal happiness back to the house.
Inside, a large task waited for me. Two days had passed since I last did any housework; even Stay At Home Dads need a break. There were dirty clothes everywhere (check your news feed Facebook friends), trash, dishes, and remnants of some experiments with Halloween Cupcakes. I figured it would be a long day of cleaning.
So I popped in Sleddin’ Hill and began cleaning. Thirty minutes later the house is clean. Witness the power of heavy metal.
