Help Josh (not?) embarrass himself.

27 April, 2013 (23:44) | Personal Update

Help.  I’m registered to run the Pittsburgh marathon’s 5k this Saturday, May 4th for The L.I.V.I.N.G. Ministry.  Fact is, I’m terribly out of shape.  When I signed up, I didn’t know we’d be expecting another baby in November.  I didn’t know we would be moving into a new house.  I didn’t know we’d be getting […]

When the lights go out in your building, I will call you saying, “Are you sleeping yet?”

20 July, 2012 (12:00) | FYI/DIY
