Today turned out to be a pretty busy day. I made a quick trip to Lowes to get a pair of 12' pieces of crown molding to finally finish off David's room. It has taken entirely too long to get it completed, but I can't exactly be in there with a nailgun while he's sleeping. … Continue reading Busy Saturday
We made taco salad tonight for dinner, using lettuce straight out of our backyard. I need to take a picture and get it posted here, because the garden is quite full of growth - mostly intentional but there are some pretty hefty weeds too. I hope the peppers get growing soon so we can get … Continue reading Refried Beans and Lettuce
I've got a couple videos for David's fans: Piano Man: http://www.motionbox.com/external/hd_player/type%3Dsd%2Cvideo_uid%3D069bdeb41918e08f Playing on the Floor: http://www.motionbox.com/external/hd_player/type%3Dsd%2Cvideo_uid%3D069bdeb41a1be08f And some more photos from this evening are available in gallery. Just a general update on him, he's doing great - close to crawling, enjoys grabbing everything around him, and laughs LOTS.
We got out of Chicago much faster and earlier than expected today, so we were able to make it back to Springfield around 9:30 tonight. I took a few photos of the conference that I'll post, just not right now because my camera is downstairs at the moment.
One more day to go here in Chicago. I've been here since Wednesday for the eBay Live! conference for work and it has been quite a bit more fun than I expected - albeit exhausting. I have never attended anything like this, let alone on the exhibitor side of things. Thursday started off with a few … Continue reading Chicago
This is to all those single mom's out there. How in the world do you do it? Completely and utterly amazed by you all - total respect for being able to do it yourself. Besides getting 3 hours of sleep last night between various wake ups of our little David, I then had to deal … Continue reading Respect for Single Moms
I swear there's a new Java update every week, tonight I got so mad at the java icon yelling at me in the system tray on my server that I gave in and clicked it so it would go download the latest ultra-important POS updates that are Java. What am I greeted with? I've blogged … Continue reading Java Updates
I drove just outside of Springfield tonight and took a few photos, here's one of the sunset and CWLP. Edit: A few more from the evening are located in gallery.
(edit: here are the rest of the set!)
This afternoon I went over to Wheel Fast and picked up a bike trailer for David. It's a Burley Bee which seems to be well built and collapses into a good size to store in the garage or trunk of my car. Here it is, attached to my bike and David getting all strapped in: … Continue reading Bicycle Trailer
