Some Days It Just Doesn’t Pay to Get Out of Bed.

Some days, you just know going in, that it’s going to be a shitty day. Take the other day for example; I woke up when the alarm went off – my least favorite way to wake up, or at least least favorite normal way to wake up (waking up to being swallowed alive by a ...

Just When You Think You’ve Stuck the Landing: Life Happens 3

Just When You Think You've Stuck the Landing: Life Happens
Life is weird, uncertain, and, more often than not, annoying. We all expect a certain amount of troubles, trials, and travails, but we generally expect to get through them and, we also expect a certain amount of calm after the storm ends. Not a lot, but at least enough time to catch our breath. Sometimes ...

It’s the Little Things That Matter: At Least That’s What I Tell Jess 8

It's the Little Things That Matter: At Least That's What I Tell Jess
Warning: the following post contains innuendo, double entendre, tasteless humor, and disco music references. Proceed at your own risk. I often wonder how I got so lucky with my wife, the exceptional and clearly-out-of-my-league Jess. Not so much about how I got her (I really believe that was God’s doing, with an assist from alcohol), ...

And Now . . . One for My Sweetie: Remember, Romance is Not My Forte 6

And Now . . . One for My Sweetie: Remember, Romance is Not My Forte
This Saturday is June 4th. It marks the 22nd anniversary of my marriage to the lovely and all-round-best-woman-on-earth, Jess, and the beginning of the 23rd year of her life sentence. Through it all, she has never complained, never whined, never asked for anything other than my love (and a new dog every once in a ...

Monday Morning: A Success Story – Sort of 8

It’s Monday Morning!!!!! Yaaaaay!!!!! Okay, honestly, I feel like a lot of you are not sharing my enthusiasm. I don’t blame you, it’s not your fault. You’re probably having a regular Monday like I usually have: you wake up tired, drag yourself out of bed, stumble through your ablutions, probably cut yourself shaving, remember that ...

Adventures of a House-Husband: Christmas Edition 2

Merry Christmas everybody! Right now, I’m sitting here feeling sorry for anybody who isn’t me. Last night, in an effort to minimize the cooking over the next couple of days, I whipped up another huge batch of Slopbucket; arguably the greatest and deadliest meal known to man (the recipe is in another post entitled “Adventures ...

Cheer Up! It’s Really Not That Bad. Seriously. At Least Not For Most of Us. 3

The fall semester is over, finally. I’ve been looking forward to this forever (at least that’s how it feels). So yesterday, I decided to tackle a job I’ve been putting off; building sideboards for my truck. I need them, not so much for myself, as for hauling a load of clothes and other donations out ...

World’s Worst Grandpa Tells All! 6

World's Worst Grandpa Tells All!
I may be the world’s worst Grandpa, and at this point, I’m okay with that. So, for somewhere between the last two days and 300 years, I’ve been babysitting my two youngest grand-daughters, Charlotte, age five, and Sharon, age four. Two of the sweetest, most well-behaved little girls in the world, two of the brightest ...

Judge Smails Rides Again! And Nobody Realized It.

Judge Smails Rides Again! And Nobody Realized It.
So I’ve been trying to write a new post for weeks now, without success. I’ve started I don’t know how many, and I just kept either getting angry, which is bad, or getting depressed, which is worse, about every one. Part of the problem was mostly, I was writing about politics. I’m having a hard ...

Tips For Happy Living: Don’t Worry About A Thing 7

” ‘Cause every little thing Gonna be all right” That Bob Marley was a smart guy. Happy living is an elusive bird. We all want it, but it seems like no one wants us to have it. It’s kind of aggravating. Lately, I’ve been kind of worked up about things. It seems like the world ...
