THIRTY-FIVE: Just Trying to Thrive!

Thirty-five—it doesn’t feel like a big deal, but it sure sounds like one. I’ve made birthdays a bit of a non-event for myself since having kids. It isn’t me being “emo” about it as Sarah surmised last year when she planned out a wonderful surprise dinner with my family, but […]

The 2K11 24/7 CXCVI: Another Year Older -aka- Aging Gracefully

We’re getting older. In 1986, the Beastie Boys released Licensed to Ill, which included the smash success song “(You’ve Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)” It was a fantastic song that had people dancing like maniacs time and time again, and it’s one of the songs marking […]
