It's like family, only weirder…

Conversational

Here’s an odd sort-of conversation I had with Sean this morning. I don’t suppose it’s that odd, but it does exemplify our relationship in an odd way. Olaf says: Why is it that www.microsoft.com/iis still goes to the product page for Windows 2000? They just announced the Windows 2000 end-of-life…Continue Reading

Monday Night and I’m Still Dead

It’s been an entire weekend plus Memorial Day and I’m still dead-tired. I don’t know what the deal is, but it’s a bum deal. I’ve got to get out of this slump, and coffee isn’t doing it. Hopefully, getting back into my workout/racquetball routine will help.

Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day! Later this morning (around 10:00am) we’ll be enjoying the Gainesville parade with the kids at the Quinlan Art Camp. It should be a good time. I don’t think that Balthazar has seen a parade yet. Enjoy your holiday if you get one!

Kingdom of Heaven

The Kingdom of Heaven was described as a place where Muslims and Christians lived side-by-side as friends and all were allowed to worship as they wish. This dream was never seen, though the closest ever realized was a time prior to the Crusades when the Jewish and Muslim worshiped together…Continue Reading

Lazy Saturdays

Today I’m completely exhausted. The whole family slept until nearly 10:00am, which is unheard of for at least Balthazar and I. We all had a bit of a rough night due to Balthazar’s sleepless behavior. I think it’s related to the Augmentin he’s taking for the ear ache, but it…Continue Reading

Coming Home

My Internet access has been limited to my grandmother’s dial-up AOL account since I arrived in Pensacola Beach this past Saturday. I did make it out to a semi-local Taco Bell once for some high-speed wireless access. That was a good refresher, but my time was very limited. So limited,…Continue Reading

Don’t Drink the Water

Well, we leave tomorrow and Balthazar finally broke through his shell yesterday evening. We ate dinner yesterday at Hemmingway’s, one of the better (and few open) restaurants on the Gulf. He did very well there with all of the family – though Stacey had already left – and even played…Continue Reading

Break Camp

Balthazar and I headed out this morning at about 6:30am for Pensacola Beach. Against all odds, we’re finally on our way to this “vacation.” As mentioned in a recent post, we’ve had a string of bad luck lately. Yes, I did finally get my car and things seemed as though…Continue Reading

Lava Orange (Georgia Clay)

I finally got my new car after seemingly insurmountable odds against me. We’ve had a string of bad luck lately, but I hope that this and other recent events signify the end of all that. You may recall the details around the purchase of Amy’s car, the Honda Element. I…Continue Reading
