Hi, I'm Ruben. I'm a 24 year-old father to a 22 month old son and a 3 month old daughter. As a young boy I dreamed of becoming someone famous. Which I imagine we all felt at one time or another. So i went to a private catholic high school (St. Joesph), then ventured to a private college(Columbia College Chicago) to follow my dream of being on television. I never did make it or finish college for that matter. I'm a very hard worker at one of the worlds top fortune 500 companies. Yes, I am at the bottom of the food chain as a laborer but was recently promoted to a trainer and trying harder to move even higher on the corporate ladder. I have alot to say, and alot to share so join my blog as I speak of the things that make my world go round and the things that make me ask, "how could that be?"

The other night i had finish food at Aquascalientes (hot water) Mexican restaurant. Which has some of the best Mexican food in all of Cicero. When i left there parking lot i had decided to I wanted some dessert so i decided to get some ice cream. I made my way into the Dunkin Donuts/31 flavors parking lot where I encountered about 15 small suited civic cars and one lonely mini van with six gang bangers in it. I thought nothing of it as i i drove up to the order window. While ordering two vanilla cones the gang bangers started arguing with some of the people in the racer cars. It only took about thirty to forty seconds after that before you heard and saw an ambush of police cars.As you would imagine all the civics cars zoomed out of the parking lot in time to avoid police. By the time The mini van with the gang bangers noticed the police it was to late, one gang banger jumped out the van to make a run for it and was quickly tackled and hand cuffed while the mini van drove over a curb and drove threw an alley where it was cut off by another police vehicle. As all of this was going on i was still waiting for my cones while in complete shock at what i was watching before my eyes. i finally did get my ice cream while watching a show of a lifetime.....O and my dessert was great to.

My son is so hard to put to sleep.... i can never get myself in bed before 3 a.m. I try the warm milk, reading him a story, playing with him to tire him out. nothing seems to work with him..... His mother is getting him to rest just a bit...hopefully i can get in bed by 4... and yes thats in the morning. Thank gooodness i work second shift. Does any one have any good ideas to help me to get my son to fall asleep?
So I was thinking today...while i was reading my newspaper in the lunchroom, when will the Cubs win one? I smurked to myself and said how could it be that it has been so long since they have held the crown of world champ? Sometimes I think its the players...OR it could be the stadium....or it just could be that there just not meant to win it. People always seem to think that its the Cubs year...every year. Honestly i think the Cubs will never win one in my lifetime..That sucks considering im a die heart cubs fan. So I guess I will have to be like the other Cubs hopeful and just keep saying, "there's always next year".
