readhed-deactivated20120829 asked: I was so moved by your post about Nicole. It was beautiful of you to share it with all of us. I also related to it more than you can imagine. When my dad died (I was 17) I was literally seething with rage at how many people pretended to care. I must have said "oh, fuck you" more than a hundred times. (Yeah, it's a habit I haven't gotten rid of hahaha.) It's the people who...
Don’t forget to call someone today who means a lot to you and tell them. Doesn’t even matter how long the phone call is. Hearing your voice on the other end of the line will mean even more than a text message or an email. And heck, if you’re close enough, make plans to see them soon if you haven’t in a while. Thank you all so much for your words of encouragement this...
Today is a tough day. It’s been exactly 10 years since I lost my baby sister. It doesn’t help that a dear friend of ours lost her sister just a few days ago. It also doesn’t help that I’ve got some other stuff to deal with that’s going to set into motion a long, arduous process I’m not at all looking forward to. Screw you, May 31st. My wife left some empty...

Sappy post coming in the morning. Just so you know.
It’s 10:00 and I’m going to bed. Can’t keep my eyes open. Goodnight moon.
Post-birthday Espresso Chocolate Cake hangover coma is the best kind of hangover coma. Debating whether having a piece of it for breakfast would be a bad thing. Consulting Bill Cosby, because I remember him saying something about this once. Nope. Not a bad thing at all. Happy Sunday.

NY Strip Steaks Sweet Potato Fries Garlic Seasoned Zucchini all cooking on the grill as I type this. The sky is clear. The sun has almost completely set. The crescent moon is hanging in the sky. My girls are tucked into bed. I am so blessed. To all of you who sent me a message, reply, text, whatever…thank you. I wish there was a way that I could truly express how much each one...

Could really use some positive thoughts, energy, and prayers sent to my little nephew Camden who was born a few days before Storie. He stopped breathing last night. Nikki, Stacie’s sister, was able to get him breathing again, but it was pretty scary. They kept him for observation overnight and are running a series of tests today. Thanks. Not the news you want to start a Friday with,...
