Eighteen years

Man. Eighteen years is a long time.  Children born on the day you left us can buy cigarettes and get tattoos. They are graduating high school and going to college in the fall. Incomprehensible. We are in a time vortex, right? Are we closer to fine yet? We miss you always. We love you always. […]

Rock ‘n’ Roll Brooklyn 10K

So, this post is only a week-and-a-half over due!  On Saturday, October 12, Jay, Dad, Katelyn, Christie, and I joined some of our dear podcasting friends Alirio, Jon, Dan, Gabby, and Gigi in good old Brooklyn to run the Rock ‘N’ Roll 10K in Prospect Park.  It was a blast!  We had a super gorgeous […]

15 Years.

Sometimes, a workweek can drag on forever.  By Friday, Tuesday seems like it was weeks ago.  Other times, you blink your eyes and wonder, “Man, when did it become May 2013?  Did I miss January through April?”  Today, it simultaneously feels like it’s been minutes, days, months, and years since May 17, 1998, the day […]

I Support…

For the past five days, I have been lost somewhere between WordPress-land and PayPal-ville dealing with the new Jay and Jack PLUS system that Rob & I set up on Friday, so I have been completely out of touch with the real world since Thursday afternoon.  Somehow I missed that today was the big day […]

San Diego Sunshine

On Tuesday, February 12, Jay and I embarked on a week-long California adventure to visit his families in both San Diego and Los Angeles.  I want to recap the trip here for posterity, so I’m going to break it up into two posts, one for each city. We got to San Diego around 9:00pm PST […]

Obligatory 1-3-13 Post

I’m not going to get many obligatory “fun number posts” this year, but c’est la vie.  I guess I’ll have to wait for the next decade to start before the sequential months, days, and years happen again, haha. I hope everyone had a great end of the year.  Christmas through New Year’s was crazy for […]
