Where Have You Lived?

Since my daughter was born, we have lived in six different houses. She’s only 12. That’s not good. While it hasn’t been planned, we have moved approximately once every two years of her life. Now, you might say, “Why is that such a bad thing?” Well, bouncing from place to place isn’t necessarily healthy for a child. We are told that they need consistency for their development. Requiring our children to make brand new relationships every few years is not what you would call consistent. Continue reading “Where Have You Lived?”

Grandpa Big Ron

It’s always interesting to look back at a family member who has passed on. Particularly when a decent amount of time has passed since it happened.

Nicknames

One of the greatest struggles that a person will have as they transition from their childhood into their adult years is understanding who they are. What is my identity?

My Old Man

My father passed away seven years ago and, because of the nature of our damaged relationship, it’s not often that I put much thought into it. I hope that doesn’t make me a bad person. However, without having a working knowledge of what it was like to live with the man, it would probably be hard for a person to understand how I might be the way I am. Continue reading “My Old Man”

Finding Motivation

Fourteen days have passed since the last time that I posted anything on the old blog. Some of you might have been thinking, “What’s up, Strange? Is everything okay?” That’s half a month without any new content or material. Well, let me tell you. Four straight weeks of 56 hours of work ad this guy has had trouble fitting anything else in. But, that could just be an excuse, I guess. I mean, I still have useable hours where I am neither sleeping or working. Continue reading “Finding Motivation”
