Things that relate more to me than to you.

Great day at the Mill City Museum.

I went with my daughter’s 3rd-grade class to the Mill City Museum today and it was great. This was my first time visiting and I was amazed at how much there was to do and how much there was to learn. I know it was a field trip for the kids, but I enjoyed it very...

Today we said goodbye to our cat Chunk.

Today we had to put down our 13-year-old cat Chunk. It seems like just yesterday we brought him home. We love him a lot but also knew that was time. He had diabetes and it had taken over. He wouldn’t eat, wouldn’t cuddle, wouldn’t do those things he’s always done. He could hardly even move....

Got Creative Over The Holidays

  I always have good intentions to do something creative, but this year I actually got a few projects done. One is a reversible scarecrow snowman that I my wife saw on Pinterest. It’s about three feet tall and has weathered the weather pretty well so far as it sits outside our front door. The clothes pins...

Went golfing for the first time in many years today.

Went golfing for the first time in many years today with a friend. We had a great time and didn’t lose too many balls. The worst hole was this one as there was no way I was going to make it over the marsh. Basically you had the tee, the marsh, and then the hole....

There were a lot of discussions and tears on Friday as we had to make the hard decision to return Archie to where we came from. It wasn’t that we didn’t want him, in fact he was a great dog. The issue was that whatever he was mixed with was causing my wife to have...

Welcome Archie

Today we adopted a dog. His name is Archie. Adopting a dog is something we’ve wanted to do for a while and we finally found one that felt like the right fit for our family. Archie is about 6 months old and has been nothing but amazing. He hasn’t barked, he seems pretty potty trained,...

The FitBit shows me how lazy work makes me.

I got my wife a new FitBit for Christmas so I got her old one. I was pretty sure that I walked a lot at work, but it turns out, I don’t. Work makes me very lazy. After wearing it a few months, I notice that I make very few steps on work days. My...

My DIY Standing Desk

Working from home has its perks but one thing I miss is my standing desk. Granted, I don’t stand as much as I should at work, but sitting all day at home doesn’t feel so good. So I built myself a standing desk out of things I had lying around. I propped the laptop up on...
