After a disappointing Halloween candy haul last year from my then 3 and 1 year old kids, I decided to take matters into my own hands. And if you think I'm crazy, that's what the comment section is for!
I know it’s been a long time since I posted a new Tom’s Corner. Summer was crazy and I’m a teacher and a volleyball coach so the Fall has been extremely busy too. Oh well, so here it goes.
Who am I? My name is Scott Lipitz and I met the infamous Tommy Sproull at Brockport State where he made a mockery of me as we played competitive racquetball. But, that's another story for another time. I am a Health/PE teacher that is passionate about one of the fastest growing sports in America, PICKLEBALL !!!! Yes, you heard that right, the sport of Pickleball.
We find in our household, sleep has become a big issue. Having our first baby was a game changer for us. We had no idea of valuable sleep was until we went without it almost entirely for the first year as baby screamed all night (and all day too). When I couldn't find something, it usually meant Laura had put it in the fridge. So how many hours of sleep are "enough" for you? Personally, I like 8 hours of sleep.
When you think of the perfect vacation what comes to mind? The beach, surrounded by a body of water, the mountains, playing a round of golf? At the end of the vacation what makes the money spent worth it?
Does it matter who your kids look like?
Personally, I don't care and my wife says she doesn't care either. We just find it slightly humorous that so many random strangers come up to us just to say how much the kids look like me.
What am I missing? Is it that I’m a guy who isn’t sensitive enough? I have to say I must be in the minority of people who are yes, against these parties in general. I know what some of you are thinking... well if you sent your kids to pre-school you would want a party too.
Twenty years ago my life was altered forever. I was playing street hockey with my two older brothers and a few friends.
After I got home from school on Wednesday the phone rings. A number I don’t recognize answer or not? Well, if this was Laura she’d let it go to messages. Not me. Hello?… Hello Tom this is Dr. H…
Tomorrow morning I have to get my cholesterol levels checked. Last year my doctor told me to get my numbers checked and I put it off and put if off until I had my yearly check up again. Why do I keep putting it off?
I enjoy hunting, fishing and now... gardening
