Waiting for the Punchline

The girls were watching some show today and I just happened to walk by and notice the name of the guy on the right.

According to the show, Young Riddle is a piano teacher. I think he missed his calling.

Surprised by Christmas 2013

I've got the blog bug again. Facebook just doesn't do it for me anymore. I'd like to reconnect with some of my blogging friends from the past and make a few new ones. So, let me start out by saying that I just had the best Christmas in a long, long time (maybe ever). As the parent of two teens and a twenty-year-old (who is much like a teenager) I wasn't expecting it to happen this year. I got up around 7:45 thinking that the kids would be up around 10:30 or 11:00. I expected the twenty-year-old to complain and then figure out a way to get out of the house before noon. But it didn't happen. We had my wife's parents over and even Our 90-year-old grandma for a home made brunch and it went off without a hitch. The in-laws came back over later to play games was fun. However, what REALLY struck me was that we never left the living room and kitchen. We spent the entire day TOGETHER in the same room. Maybe some of the fog from the teen parenting years is starting to lift. We'll see.

I hope to hear from someone that might have found my blog again. Merry Christmas!
