January 22, 2015

My wonderful wife is a big fan of baby steps – small efforts working towards a big goal. Some amazing things come from small beginnings. Two of the biggest companies in the world, Apple Inc. and Microsoft, were started by college dropouts with nothing more than a few dollars and a couple of friends. This is nothing new – […]

Marriage Decay

January 21, 2015

Between us, Lori and I have six dental appointments this week (cleanings, and fillings). After several years of twice-yearly check-ups and cleanings, we missed a couple years for a variety of reasons, including financial concerns.

Friday Flashback: Love Her, Love Her Kids

The Her You Could do Without

January 15, 2015

As I wrote the last few days about changing who I am, did you think how you’d like your wife to change who she is? Does she have some difficult parts you would like to see die off? Maybe those parts are new, or maybe they have always been there, but recently seem to be taking […]
