Whatever Wednesdays

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. I’ve talked about my beloved Dodgers a lot recently, but today I want to talk about someone who probably gets too much flack — today “Let’s Talk about Joe Kelly”. Let’s Talk about Joe Kelly I’m not going to sugarcoat things. Since Joe Kelly was signed to the Dodgers on his 3 year guaranteed $25 million contract… he’s been pretty bad. As I type this he’s 1-3 and his […]

Hey everyone, it’s Whatever Wednesdays again. I could talk more about my Dodgers and how awesome they’re playing, but today we’re going to go to a topic with a little more depth.

We didn’t have much of our own stuff since we lived in a furnished condo. Kylie had her toys, but […]

Hey everyone, today is just a short post to let everyone know that yesterday was my birthday… now I’m 38 years old. Let’s talk about Getting Older. It’s been 20 years since I left home to go to college… It’s kind of amazing to me that I’ve spent more time “away from home” than I have “growing up”. That old saying of time passing quickly and “blink and you’ll miss it” ring true. The day […]
