Wherein I Eat Lunch - Then Step Out Of My Comfort Zone
Today I decided to eat lunch at McAllister's, which is one of my favorite places to eat. The one closest to my work runs like a well-oiled machine nearly every day. Today was not a normal day for them. I could sort of tell the atmosphere was off while st...

Just Stop, Please
Yesterday in a town in Ohio, a little boy's parents got high, loaded the family into a car, and started driving down the road.  At a certain point, the parents both were unconscious, and were  revived and arrested. This little boy's life has changed forever...

Confession Time
Friends, it's past time that I confess to something.  I'm a nerd. And also a geek. (They're different, trust me). I've always been a nerd - something that I really capped off by joining the marching band my senior year of high school.  I wanted to be a chem...

Ch-ch-ch-Changes
As a foster parent, you get to set parameters with regards to the children you're willing to accept into your home.  For us, we've excluded children older than 10, those with medical concerns that require a parent around 24/7 to help manage, and a few other...

The Rare Political Post
There's a hot topic going on in my state.  It's called the "Religious Freedom Restoration Bill," and it's being hailed by some as a legal ground for discrimination.  However, I'm going to say this, sadly the spirit of the bill is needed. First of all, the n...

Can We Just Stop?
This weekend there's a movie coming out that I don't intend to see. In fact there's probably more than one movie coming out this weekend that I probably won't see.  I haven't gone to a theater to watch a movie almost a year, and with 3 kids under 3 currentl...

Good Byes Suck
Probably the worst kept secret in my life is that I have a favorite aunt. I probably shouldn't, but I do. I love all my aunts and uncles, but one is my favorite, and has been for as long as I can remember. Her given name is Lenora, but I've always called he...
