Mother In Law

     Ok. Here I am again. Tony Budge, doin' the blog. This post is just for 1 mother in law. Mine. Because I only have 1. And I love her very much. As a matter of fact, this blog is dedicated to her. I was not sure I would do another blog post, I did not receive any gift baskets or phone calls of praise or anything. (hint hint). Until.....my dear mother in law. Bless her heart. (now I know that by saying "bless her heart" or "bless his soul" it usually means you are about to say something very bad about the person. But I am not. I have nothing bad to say about her.) I love her dearly. And no, I am not just saying this. It is not the usual mother in law stereotype. She is quite the awesome lady. From cooking me awesome 5 cheese penne (just another example of how food really makes people love you.) to being able to crack dirty jokes and not have it be awkward (it takes talent, especially coming from the mom of the woman who I knocked up.) Now that I really think about it, my whole family in law rocks. But, this post is dedicated just to her because she told me that she liked my blog and wanted to hear more. So, this one is for you MIL.

     Now with that being said, I do not know what to blog about. I do not really know who is reading this so I don't know how to entertain my audience. Because, I usually am a pretty good entertainer. (The secret to this is having a pretty wife, or girl if you are not married, who can sing and or cook. If you seem puzzled on this topic, refer to my one and only previous blog.) Not to brag, but although being the only married one of my long lifetime group of friends in Logan, the parties are still held at our house. We are the chilled married couple, not the we-want-our-privacy-because-we-are-so-in-love couple. I guess that's what I can say. come paraty with us!! This is an open invitation to all who read our blog, young and old, bond and free, male and female. (if you happen to fall into the 'bond' category, ask your taskmaster if you can come before to prevent a whipping.) We really do love having people over. I am not really sure if this is what happens in a blog or if this is allowed in a blog, but what the heck.I do what I want. Honeybadger status. 

I am trying to be consistent, so as you know, this is the advice section of the blog. I am going to be a bit serious this time. The advice today is "Fix something that you didn't break." This does not have to be an actual fix, maybe you can clean up a mess you didn't make. Brighten up someones day whether you know them or not. You get the idea, be creative. I feel the world would be a better place if more people had this attitude, in place of the one of "whats in it for me". So get out and do it. Be creative.

P.S. I promise I will get out and do something interesting this week to have something awesome to blog about, instead of just rambling. 

P.P.S I posted a video last time, I might make that a habit too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DnKOc6FISU


  1. Dear Tony, I was having a day where some one from my family (a brother) made me feel so sad and so unloved. You my sweet SIL made me feel very loved and very special. I Am so very grateful that you and Lauren are a part of my life forever. From the first day I met you, I knew our family was going to be blessed. Thank you for making me feel better today. I love you, and Thanks for the shout out!!

  2. You are such a blessing in so many lives. I am glad you love your wife's family--having two families to love and to love you is the best :)
