I Will Not Be That Guy – Cats In The Cradle

Family Fall Day

Apologies in advance for a sappy post. You’ve been warned. If you know anything about me you know that my family is the most important thing in the world to me. I don’t blog about family stuff all that much these days partially because I’m a bad blogger and partially for privacy and security reasons for my kids. I’ve got three boys who mean everything to me. I’ve got a Wife who is so far … Continue reading

39 And Doing Fine…

Family At Margaritaville

As has become my tradition (at least since my 35th birthday) I wanted to take a few minutes to sit down with my computer and put some thoughts together. If you’re interested at all, you can look back at the last couple of years worth of babbling: Thoughts At 35 Thoughts At 36 Thoughts At 37 38 And Counting (My Blessings) So, I’m another year older and I suppose another year wiser. I’m certainly another … Continue reading

38 And Counting (My Blessings)

Family - Tami

I’m sitting here at Panera on a Saturday morning as is my normal routine, working on stuff for clients, catching up on email, etc. What’s a little abnormal is that it’s my 38th birthday.  And while I’ve got a HUGE list of stuff to get done, I’ve got to take a minute to put some thoughts down here on the blog. I started this “tradition” when I turned 35 and I’ve continued it with Thoughts At … Continue reading

Thoughts At 37

Family On Marco Island

Not sure how it happened, but we’re through July and as I flip the calendar I realize it’s once again August 2nd, and I’ve turned another year older.  Sadly… the immortality pill hasn’t been discovered in this past year :).  I’m absolutely floored by the number of folks that have taken time out of their day to drop me a note on Facebook, Twitter, text, etc. to wish me a happy birthday – thanks you … Continue reading

AirTran Airways Overbooking Fail At Akron Canton Airport

AirTran Plane

As I said in a previous post I had a couple of things happen recently that were less then stellar from a customer service perspective.  Unfortunately this one took place at my favorite airport in the world Akron Canton (CAK).  Thankfully, it had really nothing to do with the airport, and everything to do with poor customer service from AirTran Airways. The family and I recently went on what has become our yearly trip to Naples, … Continue reading

Thoughts At 36

G's Pre-K Graduation

Another year has passed and as the calendar flips to August 2nd I’m reminded that no matter what I tell myself, I’m not immortal.  Today’s my 36th birthday.  I’m once again blown away at the number of people that have gone out of their way today on Facebook, Twitter and in person to wish me a happy birthday… thank you all!  Last year, I wrote this post reflecting on my 35th birthday and I’ve realized … Continue reading

Father’s Day 2012

Breakfast In Bed For Father's Day

Sunday was Father’s Day and I wanted to make sure that I get this posted before I forget the details of a glorious day.  I was woken on Sunday morning the sounds of the boys downstairs.  I was in and out of sleep, but that’s pretty normal on the weekends when Mom & Dad tend to sleep in a bit and the boys are raring to go.  Through my sleep haze, I could have sworn … Continue reading

Episode II: Attack Of G & C

The Boys Watching Attack Of The Clones

If you know me even a little bit, you know that Star Wars is a big part of my childhood.  It’s partially the reason that my friends know me as Chewie and regardless of the sham that the franchise has become, I feel it’s my duty as a parent to expose my children to the films. So… when the Wife goes out for an evening and it’s G, C and I holding down the fort, … Continue reading

The Kids At The Library

The Kids At The Library

I haven’t done a whole lot of blogging about the family lately but that’s certainly not by design.  I’ve got a ton of super cute pictures and videos from the last couple of months that I’m dying to get to.  I was walking out of the library the other day and happened to look over and see this scene… it was so cute to see the boys and A sitting there and even better cause … Continue reading
