A cutting question

So, there I stood, once again, staring at shelves full of razors and blades. And, once again, I left without buying anything.

I couldn’t bring myself to pay $2 each for blades to fit my Gillette Sensor handle at home, even though that was cheaper than any of the other options, all of which had three or more blades.

Facing "dadlash"

I don't want to abandon my wife and kids ... for very long.

But I could use a break.

The usual pressures of family life have been stepped up a notch in our home. I've been working odder hours than normal to be around when needed, stepping up my efforts to help with daily cleaning, and putting aside a lot of my interests to be there for my wife and daughters.
