Through the eyes of a child

I try very hard to take every day as a blessing. As I’m constantly reminded, life is short and sometimes it feels like tragedy is lurking around every corner. I try, but this year has not been easy. I often feel like I am being crushed by the weight of it all and just whenever […]

Fire Pit Fiasco!

Before I start my tale, please by forgiving of any formatting or grammatical errors. I type this story on my iPad. I am in the bath, with Chicago. That is normally difficult enough, but to add to that I am working by candlelight and the Wiggles is blasting through the bathroom. I can’t help but […]

A Splitting Headache

I am extremely guilty of overusing the phrase “a splitting headache”. Not in the sense that I complain a lot when I have a headache, more in the sense that I love a good pun and it’s one I get to use frequently. I made one on twitter just the other day. My girlfriend will […]

Killer Sofa

Every now and again, you stumble upon a complete gem of a movie. When I say gem, I mean a B-Grade film that you come across in the bargain bin of your local video store. Not that they really exist anymore, but you get what I mean. I can’t remember exactly when I first fell […]

Where Have I Been?

I’m sure that those of you who tune into accordingtoaaron with any regularity have noticed that my writing has slowed down a lot lately. In fact, you could say that for the last 4-6 weeks I’ve been downright slack. Just writing these few sentences now feels good and it feels nice to be back at […]

The Splash Park

Even in this age of political correctness and equality, I feel that stay at home dads can get a rough deal. It’s not all bad, but I’d be lying if I said I always felt included. Some of the other Dads think you’re lazy. Some of the Moms think this as well. On top of […]

Burnout

No, today’s article is not an appreciation post for the Green Day song, Burnout. That is a fantastic song though, perhaps one of my favourite Green Day songs. Dookie is without a doubt, their best album. Today is about how I am feeling! I have been really struggling to come up with content to write […]

Just a quick hello!

Hello. I was tempted to post that just for the laughs, but considering I was lazy and didn’t post yesterday, I thought I better actually do some work! Today is a very busy day for me, so I just wanted to check in and give you all the schedule for the rest of the week. […]

Number 100!

My original plan for today was to do a recap of the Bears game, but as per normal, the Bears offense played horrible and it left me in a bad mood. I was expecting a loss, but does it always have to be so frustrating? Anyway, as I ignored the dishes and pondered on what […]
