Working From Home With Kids

For anyone who had ever dealt with a long commute or long hours in a cubicle, working from home feels like a day off many times and should be considered a luxury.  Working from home has other benefits, such as gas savings, less wasted time (waiting in traffic), a comfortable environment, and (my favorite) you

Who Wants A Donkey Ride? (For Mother’s Day)

mothers day

This is going to be a short post but the story was too funny not to tell. I took my two boys (10 & 5) to Walmart the Saturday morning before Mother’s Day to get something for my wife (their mom) and to let her sleep in.  Because let’s face it, you can’t sleep with

How Well Do You Know Your Wife?

Have you ever seen The Newlywed Game?  It’s a great show which takes newlyweds and asks them various questions about each other to see how well they know each other.  Well, our church recently had a banquet for Valentine’s Day and we played a version of this game.  Except this was made up of couples

Why I Hate Walmart.

I’m going to warn you beforehand.   This post is going to be a rant.  I’m going to groan and moan and complain.  So there…you’ve been warned.  How many times have you been inside a Walmart?  Ten…Twenty..Fifty….Over One Hundred?  I can’t even count.  I started my working life after college in a Walmart so I
