Articles from July 2009
I recently got engaged to my longtime girlfriend a few months ago. Last month we moved in together. We went from a long-distance relationship, seeing each other twice a month, to seeing each other ALL THE TIME. Needless to say, this can take quite an adjustment.

I replied, “You don’t understand what its like living with balls.” So that’s when the name hit me.
More posts to come once I get the site looking the way I like it.
