I left Charlotte yesterday to oversee the wedding of my friends Richard and Renee, leaving Miles and Jaclyn alone for a night. Before I went to bed following the rehearsal dinner, I received a voicemail that Google graciously transcribed for me. If you think listening to the actual message was any clearer, you are incorrect. … Continue reading Year 4, Day 205
Year 4, Day 191: Double Weddings!
It's hard enough getting Miles to settle down and control himself for one social outing. Today, we had to do it twice, as we had two weddings to attend on the same day! Fortunately (and this is a big asterisk), the first one -- for our friend Melanie -- was attended virtually via Zoom, since … Continue reading Year 4, Day 191: Double Weddings!

Miles is a good enough traveler; he just gets a little testy after being in the car for a couple hours (but then, find someone who doesn't). That being said, it was clear by the end of our return trip from Myrtle Beach on Sunday that he had about had it with excessive traveling. And … Continue reading Day 275
