My Journey to a Genesis

My Journey to a Genesis

I don’t know where to begin. I guess it began with losing custody of my oldest daughter, Genesis. It’s hard to write about how shameful the experience was. It was wintertime, 2009. I lived off the Costco box of Top Ramen to avoid grocery store visits. If I absolutely needed groceries, I’d go at night – right before closing. I did this to avoid any encounters with...

Father’s Day Tips for the Young and the Restless

Jun 15

As a single dad with over 12 years of experience, two moms to communicate with, and two amazingly beautiful daughters, I’ve had my ups and downs.  I’ve been the custodial and the non-custodial parent. I’ve been married. I’ve been divorced. I’ve dated women who were horrible for my daughters to be around. I’ve been in loving...

Maybe I Just Need a Friend

I know a few people that could tell me, “I told you so,” but I won’t mention any names. It’s obvious that finding a lasting relationship has been difficult for me.  I tried online dating, I’ve tried being introduced by friends, and I’ve tried going back to a prior relationship; the latter being the most recent of all.  I’m sad, I’ll admit it but I’m not worried, not...

Work-Related Issues

There are a million things I’d rather do than having to use the restroom at work.  Let me be specific.  Pooping at work.  I hate it.  There is not enough privacy during this intimate moment so I try to hold it, fighting off the urge by singing the ABC’s in my head.  It never works, it just gets worse.  Shifting in my non-ergonomic work chair, taking deep breaths,...

Stepping Up to the Plate

Stepping Up to the Plate

I was about nine years old when my parents would come home from work, shut their bedroom door behind them, and start arguing.  There wasn’t a pillow large enough that could hide me from the sound.  Parents try preparing their children for everything, but not this.  I’d leave the house to the nearby junior high where boys my same age practiced baseball.  You’d hear...

Hey can I tell u something?

Hey can I tell u something?

I got home the other night after a wearing day.  I was exhausted, looking forward to the cold beer that sat in my fridge and playing my neglected guitar until my fingers failed.  Genesis had just given me a new song to learn before she went back to her mom’s house; Christina Perri’s A Thousand Years is much better than the wrecking ball she tried getting me to learn...

Change is Good

While driving to work this morning, I got honked at. I could have predicted it. I’m cruising in the middle lane, speed limit of 45, and my right turn was coming up in about a quarter of a mile. No music playing, no checking my phone; it’s just me, the road, and normal morning traffic conditions. I’m aware of the red two-door in the right lane, about two car lengths...
