Parenting Isn’t For The Faint Of Heart

Sometimes it is hard not to feel a little torn up and a little guilty even when you make decisions that you think will provide a better life.

Don’t Argue With Mom

Just for kicks we are posting another audiopost in which we talk about how my mother was right and I was wrong, glasses, money and age.

Good times for all.


Oh there they are, right on top of your head.

If you’re interested in hearing more you can always listen to the Almost Better Than Bad Sex playlist. That is a mix of posts that my stats

That is a mix of posts that my stats says is among my greatest hits.

Going to keep thinking about the whole podcast thing, but doing audio posts on and off since about 2004, maybe it is time to get more serious.

Would A Podcast Increase Engagement ?

The lovely comments and emails that came from yesterday’s post encouraged me to do another today.

You’ll find a few thoughts about podcasts, humping, hump day, The Brady Bunch and much more.

Check it out, and I hope you like it.

Do People Notice When You Don’t Publish?

Do people notice when you publish or don’t publish is a brief comment about the impact of your content upon them.

It is a question I should ask more often, is my content entertaining, educational and or informative.

If it is one or more and people don’t read that is a promotion issue.

But if it doesn’t tick one of those boxes, well I better stop and think about what I am doing.

Blogging & The New World

Blogging has been a part of my life for 13 years now and so it has become the instrument I use to record thoughts and feelings about the new world(s) I enter.

Living in Texas for round two, except this time I have moved into a house and find myself preparing for the arrival of the children who have never lived here with me.

Visited yes, but lived, no.

A giant sacrifice on all our parts and one I desperately pray will work out half as well as I hope because it just has to.

Unpacking It All

Alone for now, I unpack boxes and organize preparing for a new life with a bit of trepidation and a lot of hope.

Thre is an inordinate amount of pressure upon me and all I can do is say I am a big boy and take it.

All I can do is my best and hope it is enough to make the sacrifice meaningful and worth it.

My gut says the answer will be yes, but you never do know about these things until you cross through to the other side.

So here is to taking steps into the fog of the great mystery and to having the courage to see it through.

Here is to finding out whether the joke is on me and if so, learning to laugh with and at myself.

Life is an adventure for those who are daring and willing to live it.

I am and I will.
