  • So….that’s happening.

    By on May 18, 2022

    Last year Brett got offered a job in Germany. And I was annoyed. Like, dude. You just go and apply for a job in Germany and you don’t even discuss it with your wife?!

  • Never feel guilty about a nap

    In just a little over 3 weeks my kids will be finished with another school year. The first one where all 3 of my kids were in school. I’m not sure what I thought it was going to be. The first 2 months were a wacky re-living of 2020…

    I remember quite clearly the day the allergist came back with the news that both of my older children were allergic to both cats and dogs.

    I was thrilled.

    Not that I don’t love a cute puppy as much as the next person, but what I don’t love is hair everywhere, expensive medical…

    By on July 20, 2018

    How are you, friends? Is it super hot where you are too?  This week is a solid 100 degrees every day and we are FEELING IT.

    That said, I felt like it was time to check in and see how we are doing with our summer. As you may remember,…
