One Sad SAHD

I have never for a moment bought into the idea that stay-at-home mothers lived the life of luxury that I think something people do.

Girls Can Like Football Too

I’ve heard the stories many times and so have you:  men who hope against hope that their first child (or any number of children thereafter) is a boy.  Why?  Well, they need that someone to watch the big game with.  They need a boy, apparently, to play catch with, shoot hoops with, or, I don’t … Continue reading

Up In The Air Associates, Inc.

Have you ever seen the movie Up In The Air?  It was the one where George Clooney kept flying around the country firing people.  He worked for a company that broke the bad news to employees of companies that lacked the sack to do it themselves.  While they didn’t focus on it much, the company … Continue reading
