More Coffee, Less Talkie: The Story of my Mornings

I try my hardest to not fit into any kind of stereotype when steering through life. But, when it comes to kids, parenting, and coffee needed first thing in the morning, you might as well make me the poster child for this stereotype, because I’m all about it.

Prior to having kids I never drank coffee, except maybe a handful of times. I still wasn’t much of a morning person, but I didn’t need the extra assistance; I could just wake up gradually throughout the day. And weekends – forget about it.

Protect Yourself From The Snack Attack And #FuelYourAwesome

So, even with my decreased activity, I should be loosing some weight; I’m still doing pretty good, right? WRONG!!

Butter Coffee and Being Almost 40 (Kind Of)

It’s hard to believe that I’m almost 40. When I was a kid, 40 seemed ancient, and now, it’s right around the corner for me. In fact, you can find me most days obsessing about that fact, much to the annoyance of my wife.

She tells me to stop stressing over such trivial things; even going as far as saying crazy stuff like, “Stop worrying so much. 40 is not right around the corner. You have 15 months before you’re 40. Hell, you’re not even 39 yet!”

See what I mean? She clearly doesn’t get it.
