What I did over the weekend

Written by
I had a decently busy day on Saturday. I went to the shoe store and dropped $250 on some new kicks. That kinda hurt to watch my credit card get I needed new tennis shoes badly, as the ones I have now are starting to really look grungy and have seen better days.

It's Here!

Written by
Hard to believe, but week 1 of the High School Football season is here! It's crazy to think that for the next 10 weeks (maybe more depending), it'll be the place to go and thing to do on a Friday night. Most of my years in high school at Stow, we had bad teams.
