Dad Project…finally done

When my wife was pregnant we drove several hours to meet my father-in-law halfway between our homes in order to get an old antique secretary desk.  The plan was to sand and repaint it to go in our foyer. We brought it home and then, well, life happened.  To the tune of a pregnant wife, […]

What’s Next

So Lent is over.  I ran for almost 45 days straight.  That pesky forced reset kept me from running one day during the season of Lent.  I did however stay away from sugar the entire time.  I can tell you it was nice to not have to run on Sunday, and as a result my […]

Ever Vigilant

I’ve Got Nothing

TBT: Catching Up

After our run each day my daughter and I like to play catch.  Well, mostly I am throwing and she is laughing hysterically as the ball careerns off her hands, shoulders, arms, or even her head (for the record its a soft rubber inflatable ball tossed from about a foot away).  Her laughter is so […]

Fog Days

Just like snow days there should be fog days.  This morning it was foggy, and when I say foggy, I’m talking like the severe marine layer fog they get in San Francisco.  And as a result I saw no less than three accidents on my way into work.  When the fog is this bad we […]
