The Results Are In: F* January

I’m going to give the tl;dr (too long; didn’t read) first for everyone before I get into this post so that if you want to stop reading you’ll at least get the gist of what I’m going through. So far, the month of January – spanning the past decade or so – has decidedly delivered […]

This is my morning.

I’m writing this here to document what my mornings are like. Why? I don’t want to forget. This has been my routine, for the better part of the past decade. There are a few variations over the years (vacations, roster of pets, trips to the gym) but for the most part this has been my […]

I Cried All The Way Home

By reading the title of this post one would think that I’m one of this little piggies but, alas, I am not. Let me also preface this post by stating that Angela and I have two completely different views of making things public. While she is more reserved and private I’m willing to let people […]

Happy Birthday, Farley!

My best friend is also the closest thing to being my son. It’s my dog, Farley. Today he celebrates his 15th birthday. Some people would equate that to being approximately 105 human years but he’ll always simply be a puppy to me. If I was still in contact with my ex-wife (and if she didn’t […]

Dear 11-20 year old Me

As I sit here acknowledging another year gone by I thought I’d take this time to reflect and send the past me another note. My last letter brought me to the 10 year mark. This next decade will be a little more difficult to get my head around… Dear 11-20 year old Me, Congratulations, me! […]

Dear me.

It’s been just over 6 weeks since I had my heart attack and I can honestly say that, while I didn’t exactly have a ‘come to Jesus’ epiphany, I was able to look back on my life and realize “Holy crap, I wish I was smarter.”. Which is why I’m going to take the next […]

My Personal Afghan War

It’s been a while since I’ve posted here. You may think that I just forgot. No, no. I remember quite well that I have a site to maintain. Unfortunately, the mind has a way of short circuiting and causes me to either shut down due to laziness or plain forget. Unlike my wife who has […]

Tink…fssssh…clop

Never, EVER underestimate the power of my sloth. No, no. Not the animal (although a very slow, superhero sloth would be cool). I mean my lackadaisical approach to writing a post for my own blog. You have no idea how many times I’ve started a post on my iPad, continued it on my phone, worked […]

Why The Holidays Aren’t So Merry For Me

It was one year ago today, December 26, 2008, that Angela and I came home from early morning post-Christmas shopping and breakfast and we found my Berner, Tobey, had passed away. It seems fitting that the skies are crying with me again. Over the past year a lot has changed. There isn’t a day that […]

There’s Nothing To Fear Except Fear Itself. Oh, And Also…

[flv width=”320″ height=”240″]http://heyitcouldbeworse.com/media/bunsen-tasteslikerabbit.flv[/flv] Angela and I went to go pick up Bunsen today. We had to drive from Sterling, Virginia, down to Yorktown, Virginia. That’s normally about a 3 hour drive. It wound up taking us about 4.5. Traffic heading down was horrible, what with traffic down 95, near Busch Gardens and the typical weekend […]

39: Thumbing My Nose At 40.

Well, my birthday came and went off without a hitch. I did discover that I share the same birthday as Erin Andrews, Lance Bass, George Will, Randy Travis, and Audrey Hepburn. Other than that it was a nice, low key day. The problem with me hitting 39 is simple: I’m at one of those ages […]
