Ugh… cleaning.  Something that never ends for me.  I pick up the living room only to turn around and have Cheerios all over the carpet.  Or I get my office straightened up and then after a crazy brainstorming session I have stuff everywhere (including salsa… how does that always happen?!)

What an easy thing to do.  I had to walk 30 paces from our front door to our mailbox to drop off a handwritten card and Coke from the Courtneys.  Annalise and I go get the mail every day together so today as I walked I told her how important it is to surprise people […] Read more…

Inspire Challenge: Tell a joke

by

A lot of the time the delivery of a joke is what makes it funny.  And most of the time I get the timing off and end up laughing before the punch line.  But since there was a lot of texting jokes going around this week, I thought I’d share some of them I saw. […] Read more…
