My mother-in-law was placed into hospice on Friday evening.  While this is a tough time for us, she is very much at peace and ready to move on.

 

The reason this is an anti-rant is because while I've certainly had family members die this is my first experience with hospice.  What an amazing subset of people these folks are among us, who I never really thought much about before this.  The amount of care and love they've shown to my MIL and family, and to our kids in particular, is amazing.  


Nice post... most importantly, all the best to you and yours.

Tough time of year for this. My girlfriend's 96 year old grandfather is slipping away as well. But I love the positivity. All the best to you and your family, Happy Thanksgiving.

Extra thankful this year. Birthday on Thanksgiving, and next year we’re adding a little slugger to the family.

Discussing Politics on Facebook with Gary Roenicke is the highlight of my day..

 

We're on opposite sides, but it's still pretty cool. 

 

if you're facebook friends with Stan the Fan, check it out. 

 

Good times!

First night for the little guy in his own room...45 minutes of screaming but he's now asleep.

What a chaotic whirlwind of emotions that was.

Stay strong.

If he starts screaming again, don’t cave in and set a precedent, even if it means you get barely any sleep tonight.

My kid sleeps in his bed, but always finds a way to crawl into our bed around 5am when my wife leaves for work. 

 

He's 8.

I know this might sound dumb, but do people just seem so much nicer when the Ravens are good? 

 

Just...it just feels like it.

I mean, it's not exactly breaking news that a group would get overly emotional about the outcomes of sporting events. I do think there's a difference, though, in the specific performance of this team, the lack of known...um, "iffy" personalities, etc. It's an easy team to unite around.

 

Hell, I get positive comments wearing my Ravens hat around Philly. Philly.

Made me look it up.

She is still super hot. The golden globes looked great in that dress too.

53 years old.

 

She still looks like she's in her early 40's.

Got a puppy last night, surprised the kids with it today.

Rant: potty training a puppy.
