The Obligatory New Year’s Resolution Post!

I have read countless articles about goal setting, and most of them indicate telling friends and family about the goals we set helps to keep us accountable in actually achieving said goals. So today, dear reader, you are my friends and family! (Although, if… Continue Reading “The Obligatory New Year’s Resolution Post!”

2019 in Review

Right about now, my Twitter feed is filling up with snarky tweets that #SumsUp2019. Was this year really so bad, or is it easy for people to focus on the things that didn’t go right at the year’s end? This year wasn’t always easy… Continue Reading “2019 in Review”

By Golly, I’m a Dot Com!

If you have been a loyal reader of mine (ie. my family), you may have noticed my blog experienced an identity crisis this past year. After taking an unplanned, year-long hiatus, I reemerged shortly after the birth of my son as The Oversteeper. I… Continue Reading “By Golly, I’m a Dot Com!”

Family Fun: Slate Run Living Historical Farm

I used to live in Ohio (the Columbus metropolitan area), but that was twenty years ago, and it was much quieter back then.

Video Diary: An October Park Day

October Park Day

Autumn has slinked in. My season is finally here. I have already dragged out the oversize sweaters, the fuzzy socks, and the snuggly throw blankets.

tardis by andrew heath

I don’t think I have ever openly declared my nerdom here on my blog, but I have demonstrated it here, here, here, and here. Now however, I would like to declare it: I. Am. A. Nerd. Like a stay-up-well-past-my-bedtime-even-though-my-infant-son-has-me-sleep-deprived-so-I-can-sneak-in-some-video-game-playtime kind of nerd. Or a… Continue Reading “Motor City Comic Con 2019”

Five March Favorites

  Don’t mind me. I’m just trying to play catch-up! I’ve never had to balance blogging with a YouTube channel before. Aside from both being time-consuming (but like, in a good way), there is the challenge of creating content for the two without being… Continue Reading “Five March Favorites”

Goodbye October

If I thought life moved fast before, adding a child into the mix makes life move in hyper speed. I can’t believe Oliver turns one month in just a few days. Parenthood is by far the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and I haven’t… Continue Reading “Goodbye October”

More on Maine | a travel guide to Portland, Maine part 2

Eating donuts, BBQ, pizza slices the size of my head, and playing pinball barely scratch the surface of what we did during our vacation in Maine last year. If you’re planning a trip to Portland, Maine, be sure to check out these places as… Continue Reading “More on Maine | a travel guide to Portland, Maine part 2”
