A note from Red Sox Nation to Cubs and Indians fans, who are on the verge of eliminating decades -- if not centuries -- old curses. Both fandoms are living in a state of excitement, nervousness and a bit of shock. One of the fandoms will celebrate in excessive adolecese and shed tears of joy. The other fandom will file the heartbreaking loss in the memory bank, along with the other years of devastation.
Halloween is a blast. We have a ton of fun with friends and family. The yearly excursion is filled with laughter, fun and filled with candy. There are a few things I've learned over the years to keep our jaunt safe and sound.
We're finding out that this scoliosis thing is journey and that there are milestones along the way. We've gotten over the first phase of this journey, the second and now we're headed to a third -- back to school. All is going well and we're positive that this next wave will come and go. We remain, #TeamWhip
Cargo shorts...love them or hate them?
I say embrace them in all their greatness.
Where do you stand?
I'm not one to clean the house. I suck at it and when I try, my wife just wants me out of the way. It's not a skill that I possess. However, I do possess a bObsweep PetHair Plus. This little dude is a beast and he's helped me want to sweep the floors -- or should I say -- watch him clean the floors on his own without any help from me. And, the fact that we have a big beast of a dog that sheds like a champ, my boy bOb gets after her white hair clumps with vigor!
Cancer sucks. I said, cancer sucks.
You know what sucks even more?
When kids are crippled by the disease.
You know what doesn't suck?
When kids band together to sell lemonade to help kids battling cancer.
You know what also doesn't suck?
When you help said kids who are selling lemonade to help the kids battling cancer.

This is day one of our scoliosis journey. It will be a long road and I'm sure that we will experience peaks and valleys. Either way, we are #TeamWhip all the way.
The Lemonettes are raising money to help kids battling cancer. This year, an anonymous donor is challenge YOU to help us get to the $1,000 mark (if not more).

Whip's scoliosis journey began two weeks ago. In two weeks, the next phase in her journey will begin. We will be right by her side the whole way. It'll be a tough road, but the destination is not too far in the distance. She'll be a better and tougher young woman, physically and mentally for it. She will meet this challenge head on and someday, we will reflect on the road we took together and smile.
Today I learned that my youngest has idiopathic scoliosis. Her primary care physician noticed it during a physical. She sent us to Children's Hospital in Boston to see an orthopedic specialist. The experience was life altering.
