  1. where the heck did the last 10 years go?

    it seems like yesterday we were getting ready for Y2K, the millenium celebration and ushering in a new century. Ten years passed like nothing. I hope the next ten slow down, though with 2 kids now, I see them going even faster.

  2. Ultrasound Wait Times

    I injured my shoulder in mid November while picking up my stand bag to put on my back. There was a popping feeling and an deep ache that lasted the rest of the game.
