Milly’s Fairy Game

I was supposed to run a camera at church today, but I called Nick yesterday afternoon and told him I didn’t know if I’d make it.  Since I was already a fill-in and they didn’t have anyone else, I told him I’d get up at the regular time and see how I felt.  So I did.  Then after giving myself a few minutes to wake up and all, I texted him and told him I wouldn’t be making it. We did lose an hour of sleep to daylight saving time, but I got a good six or so hours of sleep, which is pretty normal for me, so that didn’t factor into it. We actually ended up not even going …

Duke Stomps Carolina

Milly was in our room early this morning, but she didn’t say anything to get us up, so Amanda and I acted like we were asleep and fell back asleep.  Milly was content.  What we didn’t know was that she brought almost every toy from her room into our room in that time.  I heard her talking quietly to her toys, but my eyes were closed, and I’m on the far side of the bed anyway, so I wouldn’t have seen her handiwork eve if I had opened my eyes. Started not feeling great late last night, carried over into today.  Milly was a little sniffly too.  I spent some time playing Street Fighter IV last night and today, and …

My 35th Birthday

Milly got up as soon as Amanda closed the front door leaving for work.  She got in bed with me and gave me a kiss to wake me up.  I was already awake, but I like seeing what she’ll do when she thinks I’m asleep.  Amanda told her last night to tell me happy birthday when she saw me, but she didn’t remember until I told her it was a special day for me.  We called my dad to tell him happy birthday too.  I may be turning 35, but he’s 57. I don’t feel 35.  I hardly feel grown up. Milly told me she wanted ten pony tails today.  I gave her as many as I could, but it …

35th Birthday Party

Good bit of work early.  Meeting (no-show, second this week), dropped off one data CD and picked up another, phone meeting that I took while in Port City Java.  Michael wrote bad things about Duke on the steamer cup I had.  Saw Anna and waved to her, but I was on the phone at the time. Decided to check out office spaces.  One at Cotton Exchange, one on 4th street.  Cotton Exchange is a nice location, but it was kind of in the bowels of the building, no light or anything, and it wouldn’t likely fit enough people.  Really liked the one on 4th though.  Standalone building, good space, fenced-in yard in the back.  Just looked at it from the …

“I love you, but…”

Milly was a ball of energy this morning, which was mostly fine, but made it a little hard to get much done.  She did some cute things though.  At one point she walked into the office, telling me, “I really really really just love you, but,” and here she paused, sat down and lifted up her leg to show me that, “I have a red bump on my leg.”  Huh?  Then she went on to tell me about how she thought a spider bit her. Anyway, we had somewhat of a fun morning.  She spent some time playing her Disney Just Dance, which was frustrating for me because she didn’t like the shuffle mode that continuously played songs since she …
