My Cancer Scare…

So it doesn’t matter how many times doctors and nurses tell you something. Anytime the C word Cancer is involved it scares the absolute life out of you.

Making Ron Famous

The other day after work I was out running errands for Drew’s graduation party. I hate when I have one thing to get and it seems like the simplest thing to find and you can’t find it. Well, I had decided to forget about it and go home, which I wasn’t real excited about because …

One month ago today, I quit Diet Coke and really all sodas for that matter. I went cold turkey from May 5th on. Before that I was weaning myself off, but I knew the caffeine headaches would be brutal. They still were for about 2 1/2 weeks after I quit. Someday I satiated the headaches …

Calgon take me away….

As if it weren’t difficult enough coming back from a week long vacation. Getting back to reality after a week away is just down right hard.
