Have you been asked to go out with people whom you really don’t know well?  It’s awkward, right?  I never like to put myself, my spouse or anyone else for that matter in an uncomfortable situation so I’ve learned the only way to get around the awkwardness is to include what I like to call, … Continued

The Camp Blog PART TWO: The Trunks Are Packed, So Now What?

Okay, so I got the trunks packed.  Yes, getting all the crap together in preparation for packing the trunks was the biggest pain in ass ever but honestly, once that part was done the act of actually putting the shit into the trunks wasn’t that bad.  I mean, it’s not rocket science.  Believe it or not, … Continued

While Everyone Is Talking About Gwyneth…

It seems I can’t turn on the computer without reading another snarky albeit funny blog post about the Paltrow/Martin “conscious uncoupling” split that hit the news earlier this week. I won’t bore you with my own drawn out based-on-nothing-but-what-I-read-in-the-tabloids opinion on the matter, but I will say I think everyone should leave the chick alone!  Just … Continued


SO HERE’S THE UPDATE: Dropping the kids off at ski school on day one was a little weird.  My kids know NOTHING about the sport and we just left them there.  I mean, my older son’s face was like a deer in headlights when we said, “Okay kiddo.  See ya later.  Have a great day, … Continued
