It’s time to re-organize the blog.

Starting today, I’m re-organizing everything. Over the years, it has become a mess of tags and categories and it’s about time to clean them out. I’m going to delete a bunch of categories and convert some to tags. Then I’ll delete a bunch of tags. I just feel it’s unorganized right now. Good intentions, but […]

Camping on the Farm

Friday night we went down to my parents farm, camped out, and spent Saturday enjoying the farm. From roasting marshmallows to riding the four wheeler, and bailing cornstalk bails, there’s always something fun to do on the farm. It all started with a camp fire. My brother and dad build us a nice fire so […]

Increasing my handyman skills one project at a time.

I’ll admit it, I’m not the most handy person. I like to think I am, but quite a few things are over my head, or I just haven’t tried them yet. However, I’ve been able to add a few new things to my handyman list. When we moved into our new house, the first thing we […]

April Fools? NO!

I’m all for a good prank, but I’m not a fan of April Fools day. Most of the pranks aren’t funny, some are just mean, and they are all forced upon us whether we want them or not. It could be a long crabby day.

Working out in only 7 minutes a day.

I don’t exercise and I’m not in shape. I’ve tried going to the gym before, but it doesn’t last. I even joined the push-up club at work; well for a few weeks. However, now I’m trying the 7 minute workout. If you haven’t heard of it, the exercise program is 12 different exercises that work […]
