I took an unplanned hiatus. At some point in the late winter and early spring, I stopped riding the bus and I started being busy with the house. I haven’t had a chance to sit down and sort out my thoughts. Now, I have a moment, as I wait for Ellie to wake up and we can get ready for a wedding in the Minneapolis area. I don’t think the work that comes with owning a home has dipped into my time as much as Continue reading →
Over the weekend Ellie’s cat, Tilly, decided to start playing with my wedding ring which I had left on the counter while I showered. No one was around to watch her and stop her. She played and played with it and then it disappeared. It was at that moment when I realized how attached I had become to wearing the ring.

I’m running a little late on this, but today is my parents’ 31st wedding anniversary!

We had taken a day trip to Chicago before Continue reading →

They’re over at A Sunshine Moment. You may notice me in some of the photos, I’m the good-looking guy that is more often than not standing next to the groom in the spot reserved for the best man.
January has been busy to the point where even when I have time to write, I don’t because I’m exhausted. Work, and commuting to and from work each day, really takes a lot out of me. There’s not much else to say in that area except I can describe my job by quoting Tom Smykowski from Office Space and that’s a little depressing. Earlier this month, one of my best friends got married and I happened to be the Best Man. In was a nice ceremony Continue reading →
