The date was June 16, 2010, and I had already made the decision that we were not getting this dog. But the boys – and they were really boys back then — begged me to go at least see this beagle named Shelby, and I caved. Josh had just finished fourth grade, Noah was coming out of third grade and...

Back in my drinking days, I have to admit that New Year’s Eve was not my favorite night of the year, which may explain why finding sobriety almost 23 years ago was probably a good thing.When I was “using,” though, I thought Dec. 31 was just a pain in the you-know-what.It was like freaking amateur...
