My First Surgery

A couple of months back, I had an incident during my mother-in-laws birthday party that had me visiting the hospital for kidney stones.

Air Canada Is Not That Bad, Your Attitude Is

It’s been over 10 years since I started travelling on a regular basis for work. It’s been about the last 4-5 that I have been doing it a lot. It’s to the point now where air travel is a no brainer for me and I have my own little system of getting to and from … Continue reading »

It’s been too long

I haven’t written anything on here in almost a year. It’s amazing how fast time goes. I should be writing more about my kids but I find it’s better for me to spend time with them than write about them. Megan. My little girl.

Hard work always pays off, eventually

I can’t say for certain, but I am pretty sure it was March 13th, 2000. It might have been the week before but it was 12 years ago. It’s kind of hard to remember that far back. I had spent a week getting materials ready and had never done this sort of thing before. I … Continue reading »
