It has been a whirlwind last few days. Since the "For Sale" sign went up we have been scrambling to tidy up all the loose ends we have around the house. The remodel just finished up late last week so we have had considerable amount of yard work and cleaning to do. Nothing major -- just dotting ...

Geesh. Been a bit quiet around here lately. What, did the guy quit? We've decided to move. We have lived in our current home for 13 years. We bought it the year we got married. Our kids have spent their entire lives inside its walls. We have updated and restored nearly every inch of the premises ...

What Are You Saying "Can't" To?
This is in response to a prompt from my Brainsparker iPhone App I don't know that I say "can't" to much. Most of the time I say "I can," "I will," or "I'm interested" and that is what gets me in trouble. After saying "I can," I'll usually shift to "I'll get...

Hi, My Name is Joel and [Sometimes] I am Moody
Admittedly, I am sometimes hard to please. Currently I am feeling conflicted because I am not currently working on a project and don't have any projects on the horizon. This leaves me feeling rudderless. Contrast this to when I feel like I have too much on ...
Admittedly, I am sometimes hard to please. Currently I am feeling conflicted because I am not currently working on a project and don't have any projects on the horizon. This leaves me feeling rudderless. Contrast this to when I feel like I have too much on my plate and feel overwhelmed.

I hears ya. I'm just trying to make that mental transition where that is possible. Trying to rewire a bit.

Caught the Tragically Hip last night for the third time last night (fourth if you count Gordie's free Thursday in the Square show a few years back). My friend Paul gave me his spare ticket. The Hip played their 1992 album Fully Completely in front of pretty stinkin' full F'N Center.

Go Take a Walk
I did. Earlier. Around the block with Shannon and Coey, tossing the football to Cohen while he twisted to avoid the sun glaring in his eyes. Q and I would do this walk all the time when he was younger. Same walk, different cast.  Tonight Q and I took a bike...

Coh likes not the danger. He's adamant that if he's iffy about something then that something is not happening. His bike, for instance. He'll get on and pedal but I can't let go. As soon as I do he puts his feet down in a panic. Same for unfamiliar food, rol...
Coh likes not the danger. He's adamant that if he's iffy about something then that something is not happening. His bike, for instance. He'll get on and pedal but I can't let go. As soon as I do he puts his feet down in a panic. Same for unfamiliar food, roller blades and ice skating.

Peanut Butter = Love
As of late I am enjoying a personal peanut butter resurgence, consuming the stuff at a level not seen since I was eight and devouring daily pee-pee-zowie's (that's what I called the PB&J when I was a kid). I'm trying to keep unhealthy snacking at bay but st...
As of late I am enjoying a personal peanut butter resurgence, consuming the stuff at a level not seen since I was eight and devouring daily pee-pee-zowie's (that's what I called the PB&J when I was a kid). I'm trying to keep unhealthy snacking at bay but still give in to that sweet crave.
