I might be


37 but there is still nothing like my mom making dinner for me. It might be something as simple as a grilled cheese sandwich but I’ve never had one as good as hers. 

Shut up John


In my mind I am complaining. In my mind I am stressed. Externally, I am stressed. There is a lot in my life going on right now. Lots of changes, lots of adjustments, lots of things to do. However, I’m not the first person to go through any of these changes. Besides that, it’s not about me. I have a wife and kid on the way. My wife is doing all the work of carrying the baby and dealing with the body changes and all the hormonal changes. I’m just standing by being selfish. So John, when you feel stressed, selfish, and feel like complaining, just shut up.

What am I good at?


It’s what I would consider the 50% to 60% stage of my life. I don’t know if it’s just a mid life crisis thing but in not really sure what I’m good at currently. I believe I gave an addictive personality yet I lack commitment. Does that even make sense? I’m not a very thoughtful person either. Nor am I sociable.

Passive Agressive


It would actually make perfect sense that those promoted to leadership positions might often be those who on the surface appear to be agreeable, diplomatic and supportive, yet who are actually dishonest, backstabbing saboteurs behind the scenes.”[6]

It’s Been a Minute


The busy life of the working parent has kept us from posting. Today though, let’s break that and begin anew. Rhian got her ears pierced today and I’m so proud of her. She is growing fast. 4 years old and counting.
