Date Night

Early in the dating years with my wife I bought Carl’s Jr. (Fast Food,) brought it to my house, lit some candles and invited her over. Candle light dinner! That was over twenty-five years ago. Fast forward today, our kids set up a reenactment of that dinner.

Take Time for Breaks

Taking lots of breaks has been a big part of my life over the last 5-10 years. Before that I worked till I couldn’t. Now I am on extreme break mode. The recovery from this has been exhausting. Doing the simplest things are big workouts
