Leaky Pipes

Since Janice is pregnant she has a super doppler sense of smell. If a stinkbug farts in the attic, she’ll stop what she’s doing and look at me accusingly while raising an eyebrow. “What?” I’ll ask, bewildered. “Was that you?” She grimaces. “Ugh!” “What?” I’m still confused. “That wasn’t you? This house has been stinking […]

Janice, she’s the she for me

Happy 3rd Anniversary, Janice! I’m happy I married you. Hopefully this “poem” doesn’t cause you to regret that decision… Janice, she’s the she for me She’s the one for me, you see. She tickles my ticker; makes it gurgle, giggle, and hippety hop. It wiggles, jiggles, and positively pippety pops. “But human hearts do no […]

Eggs in the Toaster

Click here to get notified of new blogs by email! Friday I had to babysit while Janice went out to eat with some of friends. I’m not complaining because another friend of her’s had dropped off a big bowl of spaghetti that afternoon. Janice has good friends and I wanted her to be free to […]

Josh’s Jungle Guide to the Toddler Species

Of course, you can’t just get any ointment, it has to be infant safe with all natural coloring and zero corn syrup. This makes the price go up about $10 an ounce. Wait, isn’t the infant formula more diluted? How is it more expensive!?

The $20 Refrigerator

Maybe I could anoint it with oil. Maybe I could cast a demon out of it. That way the repair costs would fit into our budget, unless of course the anointing oil was more than $2.

Rain, Flies, Cooking Shows, & A New Mattress

It’s finally raining again in Goshen, Indiana. The backyard was so dry that even a colorblind man could see that the grass lacked green. This means that when my chickens, Tick Tock and Tim Tam, scratch around they quickly uproot and displace the fragile grass. Not only that, they poop all over the place. So […]

Home Sweet Indiana

One Sunday afternoon my friends and I abandoned our wives and drove to the National Air & Space Museum. That might sound a little cruel but trust me, wives handle Air & Space museums as well as husbands handle shoe shopping.

How We Ended Up Here (Pennsylvania, That Is)

An interesting thing happened on Monday. I sat down to write a blog like a responsible missionary type person then realized I forgot to fill up my coffee. I went to the coffee maker and found some paper towels to use a coffee filter because I couldn’t find the real filters. Then my phone dinged […]

Fixing Things, Finally.

The van began complaining a few months back. I didn’t pay much attention to it. I’m used to vehicles that complain and groan and even try to kill me on occasion. I ignored its whining to see if maybe it would reconsider it’s lot in life and go back to working without complaining. It didn’t. […]

Dropping the Ball on New Years

Quick family update. It was 2 degrees today in Goshen, Indiana! That’s pretty cold, in case you aren’t familiar with how a thermometer works. It didn’t stop my wife though. She bundled up Adilene in seventy different types of cold weather gear; blankets, sweaters, a beanie, gloves, boots, socks, more socks, several more blankets, and […]
