The Struggle is Real

It’s Sunday! The plan is to stay home and take it easy today. The Bears don’t play the Saints until later this afternoon, so that’s a perfect opportunity to make some homemade soup. It will be a sausage/lentil soup that is based on Carrabba’s Italian Grill’s recipe. It’s one of our favorites that we make several times throughout the winter. It’s hearty, warms the bones, and goes down so nicely on cold days! I’ll let ya know how it turns out.

The video featured today is something that caught my eye a few days ago. Delivery drivers for UPS & FedEx have it pretty tough, especially around the holidays and even more so because of the pandemic. Every year we’re inundated with videos of the bad ones terribly mishandling or purposely destroying packages. So, I though it would be cool to feature one of the overwhelmingly majority of good drivers that take their job seriously and go above and beyond. Enjoy.


Last week we had an ice storm. My driveway was smooth, wet ice… super slippery. I heard the UPS truck pull up so I opened the garage and told him to just leave the package at the sidewalk and I’d figure out a way to get it, but he insisted on getting it to me. Above and beyond… this guy is awesome. -Walt
