Halloween is just over a week away, and I’m still decorating. Sure, my inside decorations have been up for a week or so, but I’m just starting to decorate the exterior. I had a great Halloween wreath last year, but, sadly, it got destroyed in storage. Not wanting to spend a lot of time or […]

Pee-wee’s Playhouse: The Complete Series Now Available

Pee-wee’s Playhouse was a staple of my childhood.

Chicago Marathon Taper Madness

Pin It

I can not believe race week is here. Friday, I head to Chicago and on Sunday, I will participate in the Bank of America Chicago Marathon. Sunday. While I don’t know that I’d call what I’m experiencing true “Taper Madness” because you can’t really taper from training that didn’t go as planned, but what I […]
