A surprising Ritalin side effect

It’s been a week since I’ve been on Ritalin and today was the first time I’ve received my paycheck while on the medication.  I’ve felt the side effects of loss of appetite and even had tunnel vision on Saturday morning after an hour and half of hoops but this side effect I didn’t see coming….

Not a good day today

  Ugh, so glad it’s 9:33 pm tonight for today was not a good day. Maybe it started last night when I found out I was denied schooling at the Western Governors University.  So much for A Better Life Starts with You messaging.  I failed the math portion, miserably, but I wasn’t going to cheat…

My response to Why Millennials are leaving the Church

I read a CNN blog this morning titled “Why millennials are leaving the church“.  The writer, Rachel Held Evans, made some interesting points, but, as with a lot of millennials, she made it from her viewpoint.  Most of the initial paragraphs are “I this, I that”, then she closes it out with “We this, and…

Internet Explorer YOU’RE FIRED

I just finished a blog entitled Beautiful Women and Canyon’s Restaurant.  Normally, I write in Chrome.  Today I wrote in IE and when I pressed the publish button half of my blog was gone.  Not to be found. Ugh. IE, you are fired.

Beautiful Women and Canyon’s Restaurant

I’ve always admired and noticed beautiful women.  Their smile, confident walk and likeable charm have always caused me to pause and appreciate. Shoot, I even married one. The thing about today’s over-sexed culture is you cannot compliment a beautiful women for just being beautiful without her and your friends thinking you are up to no good.  Apparently, noticing beauty…

Day 1 of Ritalin turned out OK

  My first pill after being diagnosed with ADHD was taken at 9:00 am this morning.  It was a 20mg generic version of Ritalin.  By 9:07 am something happened to me.  At first I shook my head as if had just walked into a spider’s web.  “How can it hit me this fast?” I thought…

It’s official: I have ADD

Every week day I pray before I go to work and on Monday, June 17, 2013 I was tired of not remembering what I read, tired of being behind the eight ball my whole life, and tired of just being good enough.  My prayer that day included the line “Lord increase the usage of my…

The Lyrics to For We Wrestle

I’m sitting here listening to Jordan lay down the guitar tracks to For We Wrestle and so excited for how it’s turning out. This is one of my ‘out there’ tunes and the title track to the album.  You could say it’s what Second Wind was to Mr. Brown.  I wouldn’t have put it on…

The People of Walmart

It’s time for me to rant. A Facebook friend of mine posted that he was going to Walmart and to pray for him.  The comments came in from our Christian friends that prayer can’t save you and be strong, and how much they hate that place.  I was the party pooper because I commented ‘Jesus…

Dear Gay guy God loves,

A couple of weeks ago I wrote a blog called Pride Night with the Seattle Storm.  I thought it was funny that the first time I go to an WNBA game with my young children it’s on pride night.  I thought my gay friends would chuckle thinking ‘serves you right’ and my Christian friends would…

Back to the Grind!

Man, not keeping up with blogging really sucks.  I’ve been so busy this summer with work, family and broken back. Got a lot to discuss as a lot has happened so back to the grind y’all!

My back attack

I’m back, ironically enough, my back has kept me out of commission for the past week on writing my blog. Last Wednesday morning at 12:12 am I was awaken with a sharp pain.  A pain so great it paralyzed the lower part of my body. My screams woke Lindsay up and we were both perplexed…
