My Wife and I Had Two Weddings for Under $10,000

Whole30 Day 29 : Get Ready to Say Goodbye My Friends

9:13 a.m. I pooped so hard I wanted to grab it out of the toilet and use it to start building condos. Maybe one of those Pencils of Promise projects in Ecuador or something. Breakfast was as quick as it was small. Have to get out of the house and make my follow-up meeting at …

Whole30 Day 28 : We Discover Chocolate Bars

9:59 a.m. Woody partied his balls off at the park. We weren’t planning on going. We came up to the corner and he peaked over to see all the dogs running wild, then looked at me with a yearning in his eye, and I caved. And after an 18-dog game of fetch, which he was …

Whole30 Day 27 : This Is Us

7:54 p.m. When I’m happy, I’m really fun. It’s the reason people keep me around. Sure I go dark a few days every month but I mostly keep to myself and try not to take it out on anyone. We are all carrying around our daily battles and our lifelong battle wounds. But when I’m …

Whole30 Day 25 : Our Dogson is a Narcissist

8:35 a.m. I am so dizzy this morning. Last night I could have fainted. I experienced my first food dream. Of course, it was nachos. Thousands of them. And every dip you could imagine. Melted cheese, salsa, guacamole. There were dips hanging from the walls and entire tables made of cheese. It was a glorious …

Whole30 Day 24 : Three Quarter Review

8:10 a.m. Woody won’t come out and say it but I know he’s pissed he didn’t get a pic up on the blog yesterday. We were starving before bed last night. I started in on a snacking forage and Alexis followed. We were eating food like raccoons. I licked the remains of a squeezed lemon …

Whole30 Day 23 : Scores Of Women

8:30 a.m. You might be wondering what I’m doing up so early. Well, Alexis has to work. Which is a bummer because she really wanted to go to the Women’s March downtown. So I am going in her place. Also, someone needs to protect these people that have probably never thrown a punch in their …

Whole30 Day 22 : Listen To The Mandolin Rain

9:59 a.m. Alexis is crying. America has just inaugurated its 45th president. I’m afraid to even open up the internet today. We are talking ourselves into being able to watch his speech. I’d rather be kicked in the balls by a mule. It’s raining again though, which is fitting. I took a long walk this …
