Let’s Catch Up

Remember me? I used to write a blog every couple of weeks or so. I’m not sure why I stopped. I think I got busy (read: “lazy”).

Let’s catch up shall we?
Since my last post on January 1, 2019, only a couple things have happened:

My 3 year old daughter turned into a 5 year old teenage daughter.

My 1.5 year old daughter turned into a 3 year old dinosaur (she really likes dinosaurs).

A twinkle in my eye turned into an 11 month old son.

My youngest brother got married.

Kobe died.

and COVID-19.

I think that’s it – right? I’m pretty certain that if you Googled “what has happened since Jan 1, 2019” that would be the entire list in order. *places tongue firmly in cheek*

I’ll be honest, the last one on there is the reason I’m ‘back’. I guess I never really left-but you get what I’m saying. The world is in a weird spot right now and I know that there were people out there who actually enjoyed reading what I was writing and the stories I was telling. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on the mental health of so many people-myself included. So, in the midst of a worldwide pandemic, I’m going to try and get you to smile or at least take your mind off of what is happening around you. Writing these blog stories was always a type of therapy for me in a way; a way to tell a story with my odd sense of humor wrapped around it. I’m going to try to do this more often to help me and maybe it helps you in the process.

Stay tuned!

Thank you,

The Mattress Story

 

It’s been awhile since I’ve written anything, so I wanted to make sure that I got one or two more written before the end of 2018.

I was trying to think of a story to write that I thought everyone would enjoy and my wife suggested “The Mattress Story”. So here it goes…

Things I’ve Learned In My Time As A Parent. (Volume 1)

As I write this, I’ve been a parent for 1,344 days, and a parent of two kids for 516 days. I’m by no means an expert, but I think I’m getting OK at it. According to what I hear on the news nowadays, I think I’m in the top 90th percentile. This isn’t going to be one of those “parenting is the best job in the world” bits, I promise. There is a lot that I have already learned as a parent, a lot more left to learn, but here is what I know so far. This is the real sh*t I’ve learned.

1.) I’ve never almost counted to three so many times in my life.
