Shooting Up High

I ran a camera at church today, so I was up nice and early.  I wasn’t too tired, despite staying up later than I usually do on nights before serving, and I didn’t even take a nap today. I heard Milly crying after I woke up so I went to check on her.  She said she’d had a horrible dream, but couldn’t remember what it was.  I got her settled down then went about getting ready. The way the stage is set up at church right now the piano and drums are up on a riser a good, I don’t know, 15 feet off the ground?  (I’m bad at estimates.)  I got to shoot up there today, which was pretty …

White Hair of Death

Milly was up around 7:30 this morning.  She wanted Amanda to go into her room to turn off her monkey light (night light) and get some toys.  She was apparently afraid because she saw a head (or maybe hat, but I think she said head) and was scared of it.  We weren’t sure if it was a dream or if she saw a shadow or what.  Anyway, she eventually got over it, played a bit, then got in bed with us.  She wanted me to play Temple Run 2 on the iPhone, but I was snuggling with Amanda.  Milly wedged herself in between us; I guess she really wanted me to play that game. At some point in all that …

New Study

Slept downstairs last night so my coughing wouldn’t bother Amanda.  I’m almost totally over my cold, but the cough just won’t go away. Amanda and Milly came downstairs some time after 7:00 this morning.  Amanda said Milly had been crying and screaming about needing medicine and realized she was doing it in her sleep.  Amanda had to shake her awake, and when she did she said Milly was just fine. Anyway, they were supposed to be coming down so Milly could get in bed with me, but she decided she wanted to stay up. Did legs and back workout today.  Kicked my butt more than usual, probably because of my week-long hiatus (not including yesterday). Milly didn’t pee in her …

Small Group Bowling

I’ve never claimed to be a great bowler, but I’ve always been okay.  Not tonight though.  No, tonight I was terrible.  Our small group went bowling tonight.  We had two lanes and two games on each lane.  I started the night knocking down one pin on each of my first two attempts, then I think I had at least three turns in the second game where I hit nothing.  I don’t know what happened. I didn’t really care though, as we had a lot of fun.  We started off giving everyone names (mostly from David Andrews and me, who were putting the names in).  In order of arrival, they were: Me: Hacky Sack (because David said it was kind of …

Dreams of Abandonment and Infidelity

I told Amanda this morning that I had odd dreams last night and the night before. The one I had on Friday/Saturday was kind of complex, but the short of it was that Amanda and I were living in an apartment with a bunch of other people, mainly the cast of Community.  Britta (Gillian Jacobs) and I were being very flirty, and after Amanda went to bed Britta and I ended up in bed together with all the tension that entails.  We ended up not doing anything, but while in that position I suddenly remembered that I’d cheated on Amanda with her a few years ago.  Amanda asked me, when I told her this, how I’d forgotten that.  I think …
