It’s likely that someone popped the question this season. No, not the “will you marry me?” question, but the “what is your resolution?” one. Finding more time to work out, losing those last five pounds, spending more quality time with the kids all top the list, but one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions is to get more organized....more
Ok, almost the start of 2011 and the need to reevaluate the past year. It was a good year, many weddings, new starts for our young friends. I would like to be them at the start of a new married life, only with what I know today. Listen more, save more, enjoy more and most of all take care of my health. Don't let those 10 pounds of weight turn into 30 pounds over. Get a grip and a hold on things before they get away from you.

I've been blogging for a while but only alluded to some of my past. This material is heavier stuff than I normally post but I felt like I couldn't discuss my future without the relevant context. So, my blog will be taking a slightly different turn for the moment. Welcome inside my head. **Certain elements of this story have been changed to protect patient privacy.** I was 17 when I met them....more
So yesterday I got myself a little chuckle.
(actually, it was more like a big cackle...
I bought Daddio a new winter jacket a couple of days ago
I bought a size smaller than I usually buy because he has been complaining that all of his clothes hang on him like they belong to his much fatter older brother.
Daddio doesn't have any brothers.
this jacket is the second, noooo third one I've bought this season.
I took the others back after they didn't ...more
