Last night, I was laying down with Nathan trying to get him to fall asleep when he turned toward me and said, "Daddy, I see your office today." Granted he was at my parents' house for daycare yesterday, which is... Continue reading

I did have one friend who admitted she was a bit grossed out by last week's Challenge Photo. I swear to you, it's nothing to be grossed out by. But I can understand the concern. It's really rather innocent. Told... Continue reading

For about the last week or so, my sleep patterns have been strange. No, I'm not being awoken by Nathan . That might be welcomed. Instead, I'm sleeping mostly straight through the night and waking up feeling as though... get... Continue reading

Starting tomorrow and heading into the weekend, the Chicagoland area is supposed to fry. Heat indices over 100 degrees (Fahrenheit, for my non-U.S. readers). It's gonna be like Kenny Rogers' Roasters only we're the chickens. I have no idea what... Continue reading
