Apologies
Sunday, January 23, 2011      2 comments

I hate having to apologize. That means that I was wrong. Who really likes to admit that they were wrong? My last blog post was in May 2010. Everything went downhill about a week after that post. Work increased (again) to 60-70 hours a w... Read more

This weekend, I ran into Wal-Mart to grab something quickly. I had a few extra minutes, so I decided to try on a pair jeans the next size smaller. I knew that I my current jeans were a little loose, but I wasn't quite ready for the next siz... Read more
