The title, alone, sounds ridiculous. Please stop telling me I should do things for a living? What do I expect - to sit around and do nothing as a grown ass adult? No. That's not what I mean at all. A couple weeks ago, we had a little family and friend get together for my… Continue reading Please Stop Telling Me I Should Do Things For A Living

It’s Friggin’ Fall Ya’ll

My Kids’ Sports Are Starting To Drive Me Insane

I drive my kids hundreds of miles a week, spend close to $2000 a month, and live my life on the sidelines as my… Continue reading My Kids’ Sports Are Starting To Drive Me Insane
