I am officially an Amputee

So it happened. It's official. I had below knee amputation surgery on my left leg yesterday (Wednesday February 26th, 2020). I am now 24 hours out from surgery and doing pretty darn good.

To Us

Some people’s kids

Today I am flying from Wisconsin to Massachusetts for work. I don’t travel for work often, but when I do I truly enjoy it. Unfortunately, out of Madison there are not a ton of options for flight times; so they end up leaving very early in the morning or landing very late at night.

To Post or not to Post for that is the Question

Lately I have been very busy, overwhelmingly so. When I take on special projects at work it tends to eat up my home time throwing my work/life balance through a loop.
