GTL vs. WRL aka Work Run Laundry

As they say on Jersey Shore “GTL” (Gym, Tan, Laundry), my life is “WRL”.  What does “WRL” mean? Well in my world right now, it is Work-Run-Laundry with a little bit of this and that in-between. I’ve been increasing my running the past few months as I’m training for a half marathon in October.  I […]

We set out to sea for an adventure

A few weeks ago, my BFF, Stacey texted me.  She wanted to know if Angry Kid and I wanted to go whale watching. I looked at the text for a few moments and responded.  Well you can only guess my response right now was something like, “sure, when, and how much?”  She told me that […]

Little Sausages and Cox
