Having AFib hasn’t really impacted my life all that much. I have to take some medicine twice a day, which is surprisingly difficult to remember, and that’s about it. Oh, and now whenever I get a headache I have to... Continue reading

A couple of years ago Loot Crate announced they were doing Star Trek “mission crates.” If you ordered a year of the crates (6 boxes of Star Trek related stuff) you would get a discount on a year of CBS... Continue reading

Tomorrow is Christmas, which means you might be looking for a few last minute presents for the kind of important people in your life. Why not get them an ebook? You can buy it at any time and it is... Continue reading

Last month I went to my doctor's office and ended up in the hospital (the whole story is here). Here's a list of the high points of the care (which was very good!) I received: The emergency room A few... Continue reading

Yesterday I woke up early to go for a 4 mile run. Usually I run after work, but I wanted to get my run in early just in case I ended up in the hospital. Gotta get my 10,000 steps!... Continue reading

I don't presume to know how you browse the Internet, but I think of it as a buffet. I can grab a few things from the grill, maybe add a cinnamon bun and a slice of ham, and then go... Continue reading

When I wrote about discovering my heart issue it may have seemed like I was some sort of medical detective. The above graph makes it pretty clear that something was going on! Hurrah for modern medicine. Continue reading

As I mentioned in my last (very long) post I went for an 8 mile run yesterday. I wasn't going to any time records, I just wanted to complete the run. And I did! The weather was great, and I... Continue reading

Many years ago when I was in highschool I was at home in the apartment I grew up in, alone and watching television. I don't recall what I was watching, but I remember the phone call I was about to... Continue reading

Without a doubt my favorite cake in the world is a Pilsbury Funfetti cake with Funfetti icing. That's the cake that I associate with childhood birthdays, and really does a food memory get any better than that? For a long... Continue reading

These two little guys take up a lot of time! Who knew babies were so labor intensive? Marisa is doing most of the heavy lifting, but that still leaves plenty for dear old Dad to do! I've often had the... Continue reading

Tomorrow I'll be getting up early to run a 5K (instead of getting up early because a baby is crying though I am willing to bet that will be happening too!). In case you missed it, I'm running to raise... Continue reading

I know every parent thinks their kid is a genius, but how many of those so called "parents" have an 8 week old who seemingly was curious about his healthcare coverage, obtained a phone, called their health insurance company, and... Continue reading

You ever wonder what $26.97 worth of change looks like? Wonder no more! And here’s the breakdown by coin: I have no idea how I managed to get so many dimes, but thanks to Coinstar I’ve converted these useless metal... Continue reading

I've been meaning to write about the things I want to see in a new Kindle for awhile. This post has been percolating in my head for so long, in fact, that a new Kindle Oasis was released awhile back.... Continue reading

We live in a world where it made sense to me to pay for 3 years of a service up front despite the fact that: I’ve never used the service, nor has anyone else. I won’t be able to use... Continue reading

Yesterday was full of fatherly firsts for me. I have left off the names of the babies involved to protect the innocent (and their eventual teenaged egos); here is the anonymized list: I grabbed, with my hand, a giant booger... Continue reading

A little while ago we began to find a single piece of glitter on Declan's head at some point during the day. It could happen during the morning feeding session, or whilst changing his diaper, but each time it would... Continue reading

I’ve been on Parental Leave for the last few weeks. The above picture pretty much sums up how it is going. Oh, and safe sleep people don’t worry - Marisa was there and making sure that nothing happened to the... Continue reading

I don't have a lot of super clear memories of my childhood, though it was a pretty good as these things go. I was oblivious about my parent's very rocky marriage (which ended when I went to highschool though it... Continue reading

TL;DR - I'm raising money for colorectal cancer again, so give some money! Fatherhood isn't how I'll define myself, but since I've been home for the last few weeks adjusting to life with Sammy and Declan they have been very... Continue reading
