Clothes Rack Discovery

You know how you start on one project and that leads to another and then you end up spending a lot more time doing something than you intended?  Well, I mowed the lawn this morning, then I swept the hardscapes, then I decided to cut back some of the overgrown bushes and such in the back of our yard, which was a pretty big undertaking.  I’ve still got a good bit to do with it, but it looks so much better than it did before.  What I did do required a good bit of sawing and hacking.  I felt pretty good about it when I was done.  Amanda pulled some weeds and planted a few things in the front, including …

Out for Monique’s Birthday

I fell asleep on the couch last night and woke up around 5:00 when Harvey tromped down the stairs and nuzzled my hand so I’d let him outside.  I wasn’t too tired, so I figured I’d get up and start working.  It was a pretty productive day. Amanda went out with a bunch of other ladies for Monique’s birthday to a wine sampling place tonight.  We picked Jennifer up then went to the Johnsons’, where Milly and I hung out with Reece and Jacob.  Milly an dJacob played a good bit of hide & seek then we put them to bed at 8.  I brought Rivals of Catan, so Reece and I played a couple games of that.  We’d have …

Milly’s Chipped Tooth

The day started out with Milly getting up around 6, though she didn’t come into our room to my knowledge.  My parents found her up and took her to Hardee’s for a cheese biscuit breakfast.  Amanda and I were up around 9. Everyone said Milly had a good night last night.  Erin had given her a bath with special fragrances and used nice shampoo and product on her hair then gave her two cute braids.  They had pizza for dinner, which Milly always enjoys. We had breakfast then I ordered a few things for Mom and Dad to be able to hook a computer up to their TV then helped Erin with a couple things on her computer.  After that …

Money and Pancakes

I really enjoyed the end of my working day.  I drove out to a client’s place to business to collect a nice check for a site that went live today and deposited that while driving my very own loaner 2010 GMC Terrain with my iPhone hooked into it.  (The thing has a nice sound system.)  On the way home Amanda asked what I wanted for dinner and I told her I thought maybe something with some meat, and she said that she’d been thinking of pancakes, which quickly changed my mind.  I did stop at the store and pick up some chicken apple sausage though. Money and pancakes make a nice way to transition to the evening time. So yes, …

Walt Shot Jesse

That’s a total untruth. Amanda’s brother, Michael, texted me yesterday that he couldn’t wait for us to get caught up on Breaking Bad, so I texted him tonight that I couldn’t believe Walt shot Jesse.  Long story short, I convinced him that I had seen an episode newer than the one that aired Sunday night and had accidentally given away a huge spoiler.  To my knowledge, Walt will not be shooting Jesse next week. At any rate, Amanda and I are now fully caught up on Breaking Bad, meaning that we’re going to have to start waiting for new episodes like the rest of the world. Milly spent a lot of time playing in her room today.  She was up there a …
