So instead of writing whatever I feel like at the moment - which usually means I forget to write about important things that happen and instead blog about stupid things - I am assigning myself a theme about which to write every week. I picked four subjects or so that should be updated on a … Continue reading Prayer Journal | New House, New Friends, Good Advice
Lately I’ve been scooping poop out of the bathtub. I can hear what you’re saying. “Poop goes in the toilet Josh, not the bathtub.” You should explain that to my two year old daughter! I can tell Adi has pooped in the tub because she lets out a horrified shriek and scrambles over the side … Continue reading Mundane Chapters & Crocodiles in the Bathtub

I’d rather that they gave Adi a megaton of TNT since TNT doesn’t shed hair or poop in your shoes.
