Soooo…. Yeah. I Admittedly Gave Up the Fight. – Single Dad, Parents Article

The last blog post I wrote here on Single Dad Laughing was a journaling post to get my ass up and get going at the beginning of 2018. It was an honest look at whether I wanted to finally give up the fight at being healthy and fit, and instead just let time and genetics take me where they naturally will. At that point, I had just been derailed from my health goals one too many times. By the end…

Is It Finally Time For Me To Give-Up the Fight? – Single Dad, Parents Article

Today I sat down and started journaling my resolutions and thoughts going into 2018. I decided this year I’m going to not just list things I hope to accomplish, but to take all the major areas of my health (physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, and social), and journal my thoughts about each one to see where those journals lead me.

I shared a post over on my Favorite Daily Things website of the pictures you all submitted as “your most embarrassing” photos. I promised you when I did that I would share a post full of mine.

Christmas. Single. Again. And *Barely* a Turd At All… – Single Dad, Parents Article

It’s been eight years in a row that I haven’t been in a relationship at Christmas, and I honestly have no idea why at this point. I mean… Why is love so hard to find, and why is it even harder to hold onto for some people? I’m a pretty damn chillax, nice guy in relationships. I barely am a turd at all. Barely. I’m still a romantic. I like to spoil my girl. I like to bring her flowers.…

To Lose A Dog & Gain Another – Single Dad, Parents Article

I’m going to start off this post by telling anyone who is going to tell me off for “getting rid of my dog” to go ahead and stick your head in a hole full of wasps, and don’t come out again until I tell you it’s okay. If there’s one thing I can’t stand, it’s self-righteous internet animal lovers. Anyway… You all knew Yeti, at least a little bit from posts here and there. I really loved that dog. But…

Two!

Who Stacked the Quarters? – Single Dad, Parents Article

I’ve decided to share my latest book (The All-Important, Well-Fed, Giant White Man) with my followers here, free of charge, one chapter at a time. So… Where were we on this read-along… Oh, yes… After more than four hours of uninterrupted standing, my knees became increasingly wobbly beneath me.
