Welcome to the podcast BLENDING THE FAMILY

Jun 18, 2019

First a big hello to the people I keep meeting in the Vancouver airport.

 

 

On this episode I want to talk to you about a stat I heard at church this past weekend. 4 out of 10 dad's do not feel that hey are good dad's. 

That is very sad.

 

How can we help each other to get this number to where more men feel as though they are GREAT dad's?

I really feel that I am not a good dad but what my son Connor wrote in the card he gave me for Father's Day opened my eyes up.

 

Call your dad or another dad to let them know that they are a GREAT dad.

 

P.s New blog post are up!

Welcome to the second episode of this new strange and well juvenile podcast. We are calling it still “2 Stupid Freaking Guys”.

You have a better idea??

 

We talk right off the bat about the divorce John is currently going through. One word on that “HALF”!

 

He has had a good attitude about this situation and that leads into a talk about ADD/ADHD. According to John’s diagnosis I have ADD.

 

 Then we also have to talk about our old radio stories. Because of a trip back to Chicago I was anointed a nick name that, well I still HATE.

 

I am in the process of putting this new podcast onto its own platform so please checkout my Instagram and Twitter feed to learn more.

The above picture is back in my radio days.  During the Chritmas season John (left), DB (holding the guitar) and myself would lip-synch Elvis songs at events as well as people's houses to raise money for a local women's shelter. 

Working in radio I met some great people and have some wonderful memories. 

This episode is the first as John and I talk about our radio days but he and I have other things in common to share with you.

For example we are both dads :He and I have gone through divorce (currently John is going through his second), and are both from the burbs of Chicago.

We do talk about how we met 20 plus years ago in Tennessee

Anyway, I hope you enjoy our stories and our honest talk about life.

When I meditate this is the vision I keep inside my head so my monkey mind stays focused. This is also the image I used all this week before going under anesthesia.

This week I had already planned to be off because my wife and I were to see Jeff Dunham. He was so funny. I know that his niche is the puppets but he is a great story teller.

 

What was to be a week off of really nothing turned into taking care of a few medical issues.

On this episode I will walk you through the week including why both men and women need to get away from their fear of getting a colonoscopy.

 

Yes it can be a bit humiliating but it is a necessary evil. Not only did I do the colonoscopy but I also had (same day) an endoscopy. That means a scope down the esophagus. 

No they did not use just one scope, well that is what the doctor told me. I will let that all sink into your mind.

Then the other procedure was to have the oil that is in my right eye taken out. Back in November I had to have eye surgery to fix a detached retina. After five months it was time to take out the oil.

In my view I am a physical mess: I am over weight.

With the colonoscopy I feel like it is a bit of a clean slate, a flushing of the soul (yes bathroom humor there).

As a dad I want to be around for many years and taking care of one self is part of being a parent.

I hope you enjoy this episode and please subscribe to it as well.

I was reading an article from "The Blended Truth". They are a blended family organization founded by Brent and Lucy Howell. They wrote in this piece the difficulties of being in a blended family.

 

I have been having my own struggles of wanting to quit trying to build a relationship with my oldest bonus daughter.

After reading the Howell's wonderful piece: I could not quit.

Life as a bonus parent is not easy. 

My hope is that one day my daughter will see that I love her and would very much enjoy having a realtionship. Until that day, I will keep praying.

Let’s get right to it. There are life events as a parent you want to be there for your kids.

  • Being born
  • First steps
  • Helping them ride a bike

 

There have been a couple of events that I wanted to be part of with my son but I got stiff armed from the former.

 

The former and her “SO” bought the boy a car. Then this week I was informed that the boy will need a suit because he is going to PROM!

 

I was told by the former that I needed to have the boy home by 1 this weekend so she could get him a suit. I told her that he and I will do it.

 

On this episode you will hear my thoughts about a missed opportunity or am I just taking this to far?

Still missing this guy.

 

I was watching HBO's Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. On this episode there was an interview with David Feherty who is a former pro golfer but today has his own talk show as well as a golf commentator. A very funny man Feherty is but this episode was not about being funny.

Recently Feherty lost his son. As a dad I felt so much pain and emotions while watching this that I just had the water works.

Watching and hearing about this loss of life I just sat in bed crying and could not stop.

I call my depression "fog" but was it depression or was it just emotions from a couple of weekends ago?

On the last episode of the Blending The Family podcast I talked about spending time with my son Connor as well as the passing of our family dog Duke (pictured).

My thought is that I still had emotions inside of me that needed to come out and the story of Feherty and his family did just that, brought it out of me.

I mentioned on this episode three books that I want you to please read.

1.  David Goggins book.

2.Jesse Itzler book

3. Rick Warren

On March 24th Duke was finally at peace. I am going to tell you that there is a better way of saying good bye to our pets. 

My mom recommended to look into doing hospice for Duke. I had never thought of this or heard of this concept for pets.

On this episode you will hear about not just the passing of our Duke but this is how I want to die: surrounded by my family.

 

 

On Saturday Connor and I watched the Chicago Blackhawks loose to the Colorado Avs. Here is where the story gets more intense. Why do we men need to be such ass holes in public? I watched two grown men flip off the ref and the "Hawks" goalie Corey Crawford: for what reason? Men we need to stop thinking that this type of behavior is a good thing. It is not. 

Yes I made a bit of a scene at the game too.

Here is a picture from my hotel room and a "hack" I am using since I like my rook dark as I am sleeping.

I did mention that I have been doing a lot of crying as of late. Here is the link to Elizabeth Gilbert's Ted Talk:

Welcome to a fresh new episode. I am coming to you from Castlegard BC these next two weeks.

 

 

What a beautiful site from the plane.

 

I hate pretzels. Please airlines figure out better snacks.

On this episode: should your former tell you that they are going to buy a car for your teenager? This is what my former did without letting me on the conversation.

 

Am I over thinking here? I am not just a sperm donor. Please email me your thoughts:tommy@blendingthefamily.com

Gabrielle Hartley is an attorney, mediator, consultant, speaker and author. She is known for a unique, non-toxic approach to divorce that she developed over two decades in practice. Gabrielle keeps 99% of her cases out of the courtroom and at the negotiating table as she effectively supports her clients to create a healthy, uplifted post-divorce life for them. Gabrielle served as court attorney for Judge Jeffrey Sunshine in NYC matrimonial court and is a member of the Massachusetts Council on Family Mediation.  She currently resides in Northampton, MA with her husband and three sons.

 

On this episode we talk about:

 

  • How to manifest a graceful divorce
  • The Five essential steps
  • Why ALL lawyers need this book
  • Co-Parenting from other states
  • A major theme in the podcast was forgiveness

 

This is a very unique book and one that if you or someone you know is going through a separation or divorce: this is a needed book.

 

I really wish I had this book when I went through my first (and last) divorce.

We parents do our best to stay in touch with our kids. Sometimes the kids might be to busy or they just forget to call/text you back.

 

Even if they are not getting back to you:keep trying.

 

There are some situations where you and your kids might not be getting along. Do not let anger get in the way.

 

You helped bring them into this world so LOVE them.

On this episode I am very honored to have Joanie and Clint Malarchuck. 

I have wanted to do this interview for a long time but I was very nervous to ask.

Clint Malarchuck was a former NHL goalie. Then one night changed his life forever.

Clint had his jugular slashed during a game.

What I wanted to find out is how his wife Joanie has helped him get through his dark days. As someone who has had their own dark days but have a wonderful wife who is very supportive.

We talk about how Joanie has helped Clint but at the same time how they are helping others.

Please check out their website:

www.Malarchuck.com

Also how I met the Malarchuck's was through an event  sponsored by The Carson J Spencer Foundation:

AMY LYLE IS BACK!!

“Bio- maybe something like- after being in corporate America for 20 years our next guest went into shock when she got remarried and was trying to blend 2 households, 4 kids, 2 dogs and several guinea pigs. Luckily, she saw the humor in it all and wrote about even the most mortifying moments of being a stepmom- called The Book Of Failures.  The book opens with "I've been married for twenty years, not to the same people, but twenty years nonetheless." Amy is now a regular on Atlanta's popular morning show Atlanta and Company and a frequent guest on radio programs, does stand-up comedy and always incorporates her real-life struggles of marriage and children into her act.  Or something like that...”

 

When I was thinking about the endo of the year podcast I really thought of Amy. The idea of doing a special end of the year episode had “failure” written all over it.

 

When I think of failing and I had many of those this year we needed an expert.

 

Obviously there was a lot of discussion about #failures but we came up with5 tips to help you move forward and away from failure:

 

  1. Get a mentor
  2. Create a life map
  3. Hearing and saying the word “NO”.
  4. Small Steps
  5. Gratitude

 

We also talk about Amy’s new book “We’re All A Mess, It’s OK. These are real stories of other people’s failures and how they learned from those events.

I once a fear of not getting a job. Have you had that fear?

Today I missed my son Connors' game. Do I fear that he is going to hate me? Have you missed one of your kid's events?

Do you fear on a business trip that you will miss your flight? I have not missed a flight yet...

We all have the fear of missing out on something. 

I have also have a special treat for you right here. Anew Linkedin orginial article.

I really hope you enjoy Frank's story. We just recently met and Frank was very kind in trusting me with his personal story.

Frank's back story was simple. He owned a small car dealership:then 2008 wiped him out.

At one point his wife asked for a divorce.

How would of handled one day having it all and then the "storm troopers" showed up.

 

Please let me know your thoughts.

I had to attend a mandatory parenting meeting recently.

 

The facilitator was from the Safe Sport organization. Safe Sport is about making our youth sports athletes safe from sexual predators’.

 

The message during the meeting was why men were evil (my word not hers).

 

Yes, I am aware that the majority of sick in the head predators are men. Guess what? There are GREAT men who are NOT sexual predators.

 

Here is my take.

Louie and Duke

Hello and it is good to be back from taking a bit of a break.

Before I get into the show, the picture is of Duke who is the lab and Louie who is, well full of energy.

 

Duke is about 15 years old and is having issues but at times still thinks he is a puppy.

 

After the 100th episode I just needed a break. 

I really did miss you and doing the show.

 

This episode is part one of two. I recorded these back in August as I started a new job. 

One of our past guest MR. Johnny Nomad suggested for me to do shows from the road and that is what is going to be going on.

Johnny has a new book out and here is the link:

Purpose

Please get your Ebook of his book.

Thats about it. I will let the podcast do the talking for me.

 

Thank you for sticking by me from the break.
