Something I Lost

Something’s off April was an odd month for me. I hardly posted here and it wasn’t just because I was busy with work. I couldn’t tell what it was, just something was off. I felt like I was walking around in a mental fog. I kept asking myself all the questions my friends were asking: … Continue reading

Find Yourself

Find Yourself

The doctor is in It’s interesting to me how many of my married friends will share the problems in their marriage.
