I’m a procrastinator. In fact, I’m an expert at the art of delayed action. Give me any deadline, and I’ll figure out a way to wait until the very last minute to complete the task. Of course, there will be a meltdown or two in the meantime, but it gets done.

Suicidal thoughts, although common, should not be considered normal and often indicate more serious issues.

In these days of uncertainty and conspiracy-fueled arguments over EVERYTHING, it’s imperative that you do something, anything, to take your mind off the fact that toilet paper seems to be dwindling from the shelves once again. I recommend unplugging, grabbing your favorite snack, and binging…

In the early days it was referred to as that “electronic box” that sat in the corner of the living room. I can’t remember the first time I watched television. I do remember it being in black and white. I also remember the time we visited a neighbor’s house on a Sunday evening to get our firs…

As we head into fall, everyone is thinking about their lawn. Depending on what type of lawn you are growing, it will determine when you plant or aerate. Cool-season grasses and warm-season grasses are completely different, and they can only be planted during a short window. Most homeowners h…
