Poor Planning Leads to Poor Execution

When it comes to home improvement, I’m fairly comfortable tackling most projects even if it is something I haven’t attempted before. I recently decided that it was time to install crown moulding in my daughter’s room. I hit the web and started doing a little reading. After reading a half dozen articles, I was fairly […]

Taking a Break

No, I promise that I didn’t die or forget about this site. The reality is that in the past few weeks I’ve been swamped with freelance work, taking a much needed vacation, and working on some of my personal sites to improve them. I’ve got a few things lined for this site and I’ll try […]

I’ve really been slacking off on the whole blogging thing. You see, we went on vacation a few weeks back and I think I am still trying to catch up and recover from it. When my oldest was a baby, we tried to fly out to San Diego to stay with my relatives that had […]

It’s Been Grand, Dear Rose

Do You Love Your Job?

I’m not sure what the stats are for the current American workforce in terms of workplace happiness, but I am sure they are not very high. Corporate America seems to be running rampant with unhappy and disgruntled employees. I am happy to say I am not one of these people. I love my job. I […]

A Shout Out To All The Single Parents

My mother in law owns a local flower shop and during rush times my wife goes up to help with all the orders. Often times this results in her working about 40 hours over the course of 3-4 days. During these times, I get to wrangle the kids and boy does it get tough. So […]

An Experiment Gone Wrong

Having kids is a daily challenge. Most things you can get through by counting to 10 and taking a few deep breaths. On occasion, something happens that is a little more difficult to get through. Rewind to yesterday. My 4 yr old son decided to conduct a science experiment. I haven’t concluded if this was […]
