This year when we went to Universal we found this guy. He was super friendly and even nuzzled Kennedy a bit…and didn’t try to eat her head… Much. Honestly, it took some convincing to get the kids to go see the raptor, and I was more excited than they were to go see it (and Molly flat-out refused). It was one of the coolest moments we shared outside of Hogwarts, though. The raptor was impressive, and the calls it made were perfection. I was so geeked out, I could hardly think, but it was still so awesome. I can’t wait to go see him again. 5.5 years until 2021! Not that I’m counting, or anything… Read more »

Dreaming On…

March was a sucktastic month, I’ve made no secret of that. But it’s over now. With some carnage around us, we are gathering the pieces together, and re-evaluating some things.

We’ve begun to dream big. Bigger than we’ve allowed ourselves to dream in a while. Right now it’s all pipe dreams and wishes, but as Walt Disney said – “All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them.” Now all we have to do is muster some courage and pursue them all.

It feels really good to dream again.   Read more »

Just Keep Swimming…

It’s been a rough week and a half. ROUGH. And it’s not over yet. As this is posting I’m going through a meeting I don’t wat to. A meeting where I must get and use a backbone. And I still have much to deal with in the fallout of last week. So there is little left to do. Except follow the immortal words of Dory… “Just keep swimming, just keep swimming, swimming, swimming…” Read more »
