Springtime is Here!

I am so happy it's almost spring time. You know what that means! Time to get outdoors and soak up the sunshine. I have to agree with my cousin Sarah in that I love driving by and seeing all these kids playing baseball. It's so rewarding to watch the kids advance from the first practice to the last game; from the kid who picked flowers in the outfield to catching the pop fly at the final game.

One of my girlfriends, Monica, enjoys the wildflowers, sunshine, time spent at the Riverwalk, rodeo, and just generally being outdoors. When she mentioned wildflowers, it reminded me of Easter time and how my mom would put my twin sister and me in matching dresses with our Easter baskets and then go find the prettiest wildflowers to take a photo by.

Trace Adkins Fails At Sign Language

If you have ever seen a music video with Trace Adkins, you might have noticed some ridiculous looking dance moves or gestures. I've noticed this the past year and he seems to be getting worse at it.

Don't get me wrong, I think Trace is an amazing country singer and overall a very good person. I just get a little annoyed by watching him perform sometimes.

Click the "Read More" for more thoughts from Rob on Trace Adkins and the video in question.

Why Is It So Hard To Get A Guy A Valentine?

I am usually a person who is ahead of the game on holidays and making sure our gifts are bought in advance of the actual holiday. But for some reason Valentine's Day just stumps me.

A guy can show up with flowers and a sweet card and a girl is happy as can be. Guys, on the other hand, are difficult to buy for and you have to be creative. Valentine's is a day to show your loved one how much you love and appreciate them so you don't want to just not get them anything.

Pharmacies – Can’t live with ‘em, Can’t live without ‘em

We are a family who does not get sick. Seriously, my kids didn’t go to the doctor once in 2010. So, because it is rare we have to go to the doctor, it is rare we deal with a pharmacy.

Well, last week my son was sick and was prescribed antibiotics. When I went to the pharmacy (I won’t name it), I got there at 7 P.M. The prescription had been faxed over at 4 P.M. but it wasn’t ready yet. The tech asked me, “Do you need the prescription tonight?” and I said yes. Then I was informed they would try to fill it in half an hour and to check back.
