It has been a long winter and these past couple of days have been especially horrible at work. One bright spot has been the weather.

      2 Comments on Happy New Year, 2019!

I’ve been meaning to do a series of posts leading up to 2019, but I’ve been so busy with the holidays and watching Little Guy that I’ve had no energy left at the end of the day.

We have a ton of trick-or-treaters in the neighborhood, so I usually run out of candy quickly. The first year I lived here, I ran out of candy within minutes of turning on the light. The kids… Read more »

It was a rainy afternoon here, so Rosebud and I were stuck inside. She had just finished her snack and it was time for play time. I usually turn on music for background noise when we play in the living room. Rosebud likes to build with blocks, care for her babies and pretend she’s Dr. Rosebud and gives me a… Read more »

I’m a child of the 80’s and 90’s. It’s amazing how much the atmosphere has changed since then.
