About Another Day of Life
Welcome to Another Day of Life. This website/blog is all about life. Living it, surviving it, and trying to understand it. So before I get too far into it, let me tell you a little bit about it, and some of the key players you’ll grow to understand.
About “Me”, AKA “ADOL, or “Sorta Super” Dad Optimus
I recently turned 40. I can’t really say yet how feel about that. I am also the father to three boys that range in age from a “pseudo” adult, all the way down to preschool, almost Kindergarten age. So what ever stage of life a male of the species can be in, I have one in my house. At some points it’s exciting, and at others, well disturbing.

I have been known to wear a cape, and am often referred to as “Optimus”, the leader of the local Autobot faction in the neighboorhood, and we will do our best to keep the neighboorhood free of “The Cons”, and other rouge enemies and aliens.
This blog has been, and continues to be a journey. A journey of my ups and downs, and areas that have shaped me to who I am, and my dreams for who I want my sons to be.
I hope you’ll read on. So in the works of my youngest “Autobot”,
