Pregnancy Daze


“This pregnancy is definitely going harder than before man” wifey lamented to me as we were walking to buy lunch.

Waiting on the Lord – Moving to the Red Dot


This continues on with the ongoing series which I started last month. July 2015 would be an interesting month in my life.
