So we left Idaho around midnight on Thursday/Friday morning. Shortly before we hit the road, Cal started vomiting. Great, I suppose two days of running around like some feral child in the heat and the dirt finally got to him. I'm already nervous because my daughter tends to get carsick quite easily, and we're about … Continue reading The Road Trip
So after our potential new landlords couldn't find anything interesting in our storage ottoman, and were driven away by the liquid plumr smell as we had previously tried to unclog the sink hours before they had arrived, (I'm pretty sure the advertising should read "should work in at least fifteen minutes" rather than "destroys clogs … Continue reading Pack or Dump
Obviously I have to write this one, because if my wife does it, she's likely to only get incensed again. But there we were with one week to go before we moved. Yes, we were moving to a mobile home park in Montana, likely to be rife with whatever stereotypes you care to imagine, My … Continue reading Styling Emergency–The Dad Edition
That's a question that we've been struggling with for a little over a year now, since our landlord first admitted to wanting to sell the house that we'd rented for the last seven years.

In the course of the conversation, she asked me if my wife ever did … Continue reading 12/13/14–The Dad Edition
So the last few posts have been pretty maudlin, between myself and my husband, So last night my husband intended to write a post about bringing home the baby and how his older brothers and sister unintentionally toughened him up. It turned into something quite a bit different, but while he touched on some lighter … Continue reading Speaking of my kids…
A few years ago, my second son passed away. He was born on Leap Day, and passed just before his third birthday. Needless to say, for a while, my life was a downward spiral. Some might say I've never really gotten away from it. Unlike my oldest son, who would later be diagnosed with Autism … Continue reading What Happens After…The Dad Edition
So with Parkland persistent in our minds, YouTube has continued to shorten the leash, as it were. It's really a simple formula, money=support. So now they've started taking down content that YouTube deems inappropriate, or otherwise de-monetizing channels, in this case, channels and videos that showcase automatic weapons and gun modification. It's not a big … Continue reading YouTube again, this time with more guns?
I hope everyone had a good time today, whether you went to a church function, got snowed in, or just enjoyed a good meal with friends and family.
