Post-Derby Thoughts

It was a weather mess, that’s for sure, but I was so inspired by the people that went out in the cold and rain to do what they do every year. That’s what it really means to do the Derby. It’s almost like a marriage- you’re either in it or you’re not. Rain or shine. […]

#TheEichLife no. 26: On Acknowledgement

There is a new rule at my house made specifically for my 5-year-old. We call it the “10 Mississippi Rule.” If he is trying to get my attention or ask me a question, he knows to give me until the count of 10 to answer before repeating my name or his request.  This rule was […]

Seth Godin On April Fools Day

This article was originally posted on Seth Godin’s blog here. I’ve read multiple friends statuses on social media that basically state that they’re tired of the hardcore antics people try to play on this holiday.

Add Dryer Time At The Coin Laundry Without A New Cycle

I don’t know about you, but I’ve lived in a Chicago apartment with “laundry service” which amounted to not much more than some worn out equipment in the basement and some dirty chutes to get my skivvys down in a jiffy. But I’ve always had the issue of drying time. You see, it never seemed […]
