I failed. 

Six months ago I said I was going to blog every day for a year. That lasted three weeks. Not that I have been slacking off! I haven’t been sitting around in a haze of medical marijuana binge watching Game of Thrones. Well, I have been binge watching Game of T...

Birthdays might be only a day, but certain privileges linger. The left over cake relaxes my rules on sugar. The gift cards allow for a little extra shopping. And control of the television, usually a 50/50 proposition, tilts in favor of the birthday celebrant a few days...

How did I end up at the mall?”

This was the thought running through my head yesterday as I followed Jaimie into Sephora. I can’t remember the last time I was at the mall without a purpose. Occasionally I find myself in need of outfit, and I go to the mall for that. But...

“How does it feel??” 

I’ve been asked that about seventeen times in the past week.

I started chemotherapy on April 19, 2017. My treatment plan was 12 rounds, doled out over six months. Since April, every other week I’ve gone to the infusion center at Emory Hospital and had three different types of chemo. The days have been long and boring. This past...

I was at the farm over the weekend. It was fun being there with Jaimie, because, to tell you the truth, she’s a little afraid of nature. With good reason- she's allergic to nearly everything. Nature is truly out to get her. She knows it’s a war and her skin and sinuses...

My junior year of college, I got into a little bit of trouble. 

My girlfriend and I were driving from Atlanta to Savannah for St. Patrick’s Day and about halfway there, in a little town called Soperton, GA, I pulled off on an exit to let my girlfriend drive. That’s when...

I watch a lot of sports. One thing people say over and over again is that Father Time is undefeated. Meaning that everyone, even the greatest among us, are going to get old and not be able to do the things we once could do. As soon as professional athletes hit 30, anal...

Dum Spiro Spero. While I breathe I hope. This is what is on the Great Seal of the State of South Carolina. I remember learning that in Challenge class when I was in elementary school. I thought it was the coolest saying in the world. Dum Spiro Spero. While I breathe I...
