It was easy to pick stuff for Abby, but I had a more difficult time finding age appropriate stuff for Oscar: most things I could find were either … Continue reading What the Easter Bunny Brought to Our House

Random Thoughts II

I left work for lunch today and as I drove back I was contemplating how strange the … Continue reading Random Thoughts II
