First Father’s Day – and the 32nd

Woke up today thinking about Dad.  My father is 68 as of a few days back, truthfully I struggle to remember his age and have to ask near every year.  I wonder if he knows mine?!  :-)  It may be just a personality flaw, I do not remember dates, numbers and the like easily.  Some [...]

Welcome Home Juniper Mae

Well Tempo has officially arrived–and she has been named Juniper Mae.
Say hello to the world.

Juniper was 6lb 8oz and 19 inches long at 3:29pm on May 23rd.  She is our first child and already too cute for her own good.  The labor started at about 3am Friday night and continued for roughly 12.5 hours.
The process [...]

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day to you and your family.  I’m extremely thankful for everything my mother has done for me in my life–as well as my mother in law.  There are such a huge amount of strong and intelligent women in my life, it’s really a blessing.
We need to get to work today, on a multitude [...]

Garden Rebuild Underway

Yesterday was my day for toil in the sun while tearing down the existing garden and beginning the rebuild.  The project is roughly half done at this point with a lot more to do–I’m sore as my day job doesn’t lend itself to the physical rigor part of such activities.  Went through two full batteries [...]

March Madness and March Sadness

Today I’ll be watching some college hoops with good friends in Uptown. This time of year is always a lot of fun for that reason, brackets bring excitement-even if only for bragging rights. The games are always fantastic. You see these young men out there chasing their dreams; for many it will [...]

Anti-Consumerism versus Parenthood: An Internal Debate

Tempo will be arriving in a little less than three months now.  Real preparation has begun.  We secured day care at a very close in home residence.  Teresa has read up on pregnancy and parenthood throughout the last six months and is far more prepared than us.
Yesterday we went and registered for some supplies.  We [...]

Long Term Goals Continued

A few posts back I brought up the idea of long term goals juxtaposed against short term annual goals.  I’ve thought a little more about this and have bucketed out some of the different things Teresa and I are working toward.
The big goal is to lead a happy, enlightened existence filled with family and friendships. [...]

Long Term Goals

At the start of the year I wrote a lot about short term goals–things to be achieved for this year.  It’s something that has become part of my life, looking at what’s happened in the past year and setting a course for improvement over the next.  It’s really enjoyable, and much like this blog, gives [...]

Vacation Through 2014 & Other Updates

It has unequivocally seemed the fastest year of my life.  I’ve written about how time seems to move faster as you age previously–and that was about 2.5 years ago.
More and more it’s difficult to take the time to reflect on what has happened, and what is happening.  That is hard for me as I’m very introspective [...]

Aging Altogether Quickly — Turning 30

A week ago, I hit my thirtieth birthday.
Honestly, that’s a pretty significant milestone.  I’m not one to pay much reverence to 1/365 days in a year, but three decades worth of living deserves some retrospection.
The first ten years of life are really a blur.  You don’t actually start forming memories until roughly five years old. [...]
