Friday, early morning
I have insomnia. Most nights I am lucky to get 4-5 hours of sleep. Most days this doesn't bother me. As they say, "I'll sleep when I'm dead". Tonight though I am sore and tired and stressed. Stressed about the new job, stressed about my ever flu... Read more
Happy 4th of July!

Day 1, again
Today is my son's 19th birthday. I love that kid and his sister too. It got me thinking about other birthdays, mine actually. How much I weighed when I turned 20, or 30. I remember saying at 39 years old, that I would not go into my 40's unhealt... Read more
