    What's missing from your life?

    Not exploring anything serious or deep, but whining about the trivial...and for me it's the lack of an HBO Sunday night show. Having something compelling to watch become a little ritual...my last independent act of the weekend before turning out the lights. Looking forward to these programs in no small way helped me get me ready for Monday. Now, after years of The Sopranos, Boardwalk Empire and True Detective I've got nothing. In essence I've got a void in my life that only well written and well acted violence can fill.

    My 3 1/2 year old daughter having never been able to spend a night at home from the hospital with her family.

    I can come round every Sunday and punch myself in the face while quoting Shakespeare?

    That's really rough, man. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. I'm sure she'll make it out soon.

    I need new underpants but can't decide whether to buy more under armour, or Calvin Klein. It's stressing me out. I think once it's decided my life will be complete.

    I have no idea what under armour are like, but they sound way cooler

    And now I feel bad for complaining about my underpants. Sending good vibes to you and yours, Chase.

    Ma'an that sucks big time. Hope it happens soon; that'll be a joyous day.

    Something massively insignificant, by comparison, for me:
    The 'right' pair of shoes. My feet seem to have changed shape/size recently (weird, I know) and none of my shoes are comfortable any more
    Some people have opinions - The rest of us have taste.

    Chase, I'm sorry to hear that...I've been down you're road, stay strong and believe in destiny. Remember every day is a new day, start fresh and carry a smile into her room....give her a reason to fight, let her feel your love every minute. Do your own research, don't trust anyone, believe in yourself, keep the family strong, stay focused.

    Best wishes to you and your little one....it'll be a hell of a day when she comes home.
