Our family had to celebrate Thanksgiving today because on actual Thanksgiving my dad has to go to work. All day. On Thanksgiving. The particular retail establishment where he is a general manager is opening at 8am on Thanksgiving morning and staying open ALL NIGHT THROUGH THE NIGHT into Black Friday, and then finally closing at 11pm, which is two hours … Read More

   When I was a kid my mom loved this show, and because my mom loved this show I did everything in my power to pretend that I hated this show and “suffered” through every episode my mom enjoyed.  Well, hindsight is such a bitch sometimes, because I realize now that I loved this show all along and I was … Read More

When we were in Florida in April I let Elise go into the deep end for the first time, and for the first time I could finally relax because I realized that she really is strong enough to be there. I feel like last summer she could barely tread … Read More
