Switchgrass School

Halloween is so close I can almost taste the Reese’s. I don’t know about any of you, but if you’ve ever had small children, you know the biggest fight is the candy. Rationing it out to one piece a day or having the candy simply disappear are options, but they are honestly not worth the fight. But have you heard about the Switch Witch?

-Life’s about to get interesting.

It’s getting cold!

I don’t like the cold!

My doggie has short hair and doesn’t like the cold either.

My doggie is extremely high energy!

These all combine into quite a conundrum.

The other night, my 11-year-old daughter was talking about a sleepover she recently had and how they stayed up until 2 a.m. She said this wasn't the latest she has stayed up, having pulled an all-nighter before.

Hearing this gave me a little PTSD but also brought me back to some of my first all-nighters.

First, my sister-in-law and brother brought a new, beautiful baby into the world. Easton Dale was born on Tuesday, Oct. 12, and he is a cutie and a half. I swear, he already has more hair than I do, which being I recently chopped all mine off, isn’t hard to do.

We love supporting good movies with good messages, so when the newest God’s Not Dead movie came out last week with an option for virtual tickets to watch from home, we were all over it!

This is one of those weeks when someone said something much more important than I could, and their message deserves this space. I know some who write columns struggle to think other people’s words carry more weight than their own, but that’s not me. I am not always the smartest person in the room (don’t tell my wife).

Live Well • Age Wisely

I was in my mid-20s and visiting home for the holidays when my mom called me and my brother into the kitchen. I can’t remember what she said exactly, but the jist was that she wanted to talk about some of her and my dad’s end-of-life decisions. I do remember getting riled up and finding a way to get out of the conversation.

How prepared are you for emergency situations? How long could you survive if you lost access to the things we take for granted - food, water, electricity, hospitals, etc.?
