“A Home for the Holidays” OR “A Monster-ous Update”

Almost nine months ago, I poured my heart out after a frequent four-legged visitor to our backyard, whom Meg and I lovingly nicknamed “Monster” (for the extra toes that came with his Polydactyl nature) showed up again after one of his trademark absences, bloodied and injured. Although we knew we couldn’t keep him with threeContinue reading ““A Home for the Holidays” OR “A Monster-ous Update””

Trying to step away from social media and plug into my life

I’ve been feeling the drain again when it comes to social media. I’m not quite sure what it is….an overload, perhaps? Whatever it is, I just find myself borderline depressed at times thinking about how much time I spend on some social media platform like Facebook. Posting updates of what I did today, a greatContinue reading “Trying to step away from social media and plug into my life”

Clash of the bathroom titans

It was a weekend in late October when the battle began – a battle whose first round would go to a device so simple in its design, yet so infuriating. Eventually, I would claim victory, but the road to getting there would be paved with anger and expletives. Yes it was the epic battle ofContinue reading “Clash of the bathroom titans”

I’m sending this note…to the future!

Sometimes I do something that just pleasantly surprises me when I come across it later (as opposed to the things where I later ask ‘why in the world did i do that?!’) In September, I took our air conditioners out of the windows. While one is small, the one for our downstairs is rather largeContinue reading “I’m sending this note…to the future!”

Snip snap

In the past week, I have gone through more electronics than I do in years. I’m not one of those gadget guys who has to rush out and buy new gizmos, trust me. In fact, before buying my most recent computer this winter, I had been using the same one for roughly ten years orContinue reading “Snip snap”

Break in, Beat down

As I walked out of our house with the baby’s bag, ready to load the car like any other day, I came across something out of the ordinary. My driver side and passenger side door were open. “That’s odd,” I thought, as I loaded the baby’s bags in the backseat. That’s when something hit meContinue reading “Break in, Beat down”

Party in the dark

During those torrential storms two weeks ago, two things happened. The first, I proved my sometimes stupidity/overconfidence in a way that almost got us killed and secondly, we had a lot of fun as a family. When I went to go pick up the little guy after work, the rains had already begun picking up.Continue reading “Party in the dark”
