Choosing Life More Abundantly

Here follows an account of the birth of friend from high school’s son. I’m reposting a letter that their family received from the anesthesiology who assisted during his wife’s C-Section. This is just a VERY small portion of their journey. I strongly encourage you to read the rest of the story here: http://www.choosinglifemoreabundantly.blogspot.com/ Some of the issues discussed … Continue reading

Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels…Or So I’ve Heard…

  I’ve hear it said that nothing tastes as good as skinny feels. I like to think this is true, but I can’t say for sure for two reasons. The first being that I’ve never been skinny; the second being that I’ve tasted some pretty darn good food in my life.   I’ve been sitting … Continue reading

The Christmas Fiasco

We didn’t ‘do’ Santa Clause growing up. He just didn’t factor into our celebration of Christmas. No Elf on the Shelf. We happily consumed our own cookies and milk.

In 2 weeks, John and I will be shoveling all of our belongings into the smallest U-Haul they offer, and driving to the Land o’ Cheese and Cheeseheads. Yes, my dear readers, we … Continue reading

Oh Right…I Have a Blog

It’s been a while. *ahem*  Coming back to writing a blog after a long absence is kind of like running into that guy at the local bar that you stopped talking to by way of just ignoring his texts.  “Oh…you…right. Um…my phone died…or something…”  There’s a bit of guilt, but ultimately, you feel perfectly justified … Continue reading

My Life in the Rebel Forces: A very short look into my feelings about the Original Star Wars Trilogy.

“Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi! You’re my only hope!” “Made the Kessel Run in under 12 parseks…” “You came in this thing? You’re braver than I though…” “You scruffy looking Nerf herder!” “I have a bad feeling about this…” “Oh, excuse me, Your Worshipfulness!” “What a wonderful smell you’ve discovered!” “May the Force be with … Continue reading
