We have officially taken our first trip with Dominic. At the wise age of 4 and a half months, he has now slept somewhere other than the hospital or his home. We spent a night at my parent's cabin in Midway with some family. That night was a bit of a disaster. Little man went … Continue reading Conference Weekend Cabin Contentment
Simply an Account of the Weekend
I need to make new headers for these entries. It’s not so much Larrie’s World anymore as it is The World O’ The Elkins, or something. Turns out, I am selfish with my blog headers. Honestly. Having a sick husband is no fun. It’s no fun because, when it’s the flu, there’s really little I … Continue reading Simply an Account of the Weekend

Episode 55: Birthdays and Work

The very first year I celebrated my birthday while employed here, October 14th fell on a Friday. Several things … Continue reading Episode 55: Birthdays and Work

Day 4: Is there anybody out there… like me?*
Today's "Build a Better Blog" task required me to analyze a top blog in my niche. My niche? Is there any other blog in the world in my niche? I was stumped.
