An open letter to my fetus.

June 15, 2014

Barring an unexpected tragedy, this is the last week of my life as a non-dad. Girl Ninja’s due date is this Wednesday, but if little dude decides to camp out a bit longer, she’ll be induced eight days from now. Inspired by one of my friends who did the same thing, I’ve decided to write a […]

Our unexpected upstairs remodel is finally done

June 10, 2014

I know what you are thinking. “Ninja, your blog has been kinda lame lately. Only posting once a week. I’m over it.” You’re right. Things around here have been a little lame, but I think I have a good excuse. Girl Ninja is nine months pregnant and could literally explode at any moment. Like right […]

Can people please stop getting married and graduating

June 8, 2014

Not only did I commit my life to Girl Ninja on August 8th 2010, but I apparently committed it to about 20 of her best friends and a bunch of high school students too. I seriously can’t believe how many parties we have on our calendar. It seems like every week there is a birthday, […]

Have you heard?

May 27, 2014

I love learning random things. If I had to describe my intelligence I would use the phrase “an inch deep and a mile wide,” meaning I know a little bit, about a lot of stuff. I’m obviously not the smartest PF blogger out there, but as long as I know enough, hopefully I can trick […]

CARpe diem

May 19, 2014

I don’t know how much gas is where you live, but in Seattle $3.95/gallon seems about normal. Girl Ninja and I spend about $200-$250 a month on gas. Thank goodness for a work vehicle, otherwise that amount would be another $100+ higher. Our insurance runs another $160/month. Carry all these expenses out over a twelve month time frame and […]
