The things we do

As fathers, husbands and just straight up adults, we seem to have a hell of a lot of responsibility. On any given day in any given week as of the birth of my first son, sleeping in didn’t exist. Instead as an adult we all have to make sure that we sit out I,s and cross our t’s to make sure that the world keeps spinning for another day. Today

Past present and future

Today has been a real day for nostalgia. Old feelings and emotions from memories of an age gone. It seems to me that after a certain point in your life you realise that your once care free days of child and teen life has slipped away and those feelings will never come back again. When I was a kid growing up on a little hobby farm out in the middle

How to diffuse a blowout argument (in a way you might not think)

No relationship is perfect. Every one argues, every one annoys and every one clashes at some point. If you don’t, then I am sure you are not human! Right now my wife is pregnant and as we all know hormones are some what like a roller coaster. Up, down, led, right and hey who knows. There may even be a sideways thrown in there for good measure. The fact is

Wishing the Day Away

Wishing the day away is common, we all do it. We go to work and we wish that it was over so we can go do the things that we want to do. The down side to this is that regardless if we enjoy our work or not we are essentially wishing our life away.  Let’s look at it this way. Assuming the average life span of a human is

Is it important?

It seems to me that for as long as I can remember I have felt like I have not had enough time in my day to do anything. So many things in this world interest me and now that my family is going I am even more “time poor” As I write this I am laying in bed unable to sleep, my wife breathing deeply and off in the other

Tits-up

We all worry, it is only natural. Every day there things that happen, every day is different and every situation is unique but there is one underlying contestant. We worry. For me a daily worry no matter what is others on the road. While I have faith in my own driving ability, I do not in others. lethargy, distraction, incompetences and over confidence I believe are some of the main

Fact from fiction

One of the biggest struggles that I have with my eldest son is figure it out the truth from what he says. What I mean by this for example is that after being unwell we has realised that if he says his tummy hurts then he doesn’t have to eat his dinner. As a parent, I don’t want to force him to eat something if his tummy truly is upset

Waking up this morning was like having a huge cloud sitting just above my head and everything (and I mean everything) felt like more effort then it otherwise should be.
