This is just sad. Of course there are plenty of other things we spend on that are every bit as frivolous.
Another bachelor party for this weekend. Going to enjoy some time on the lake with a friend from school and relax a bit before my big day next Friday. There’s still plenty to finalize for the wedding, but overall it seems to be under control. I’m lucky in that Teresa has handled most of the [...]
