Road Tripping with Nick

Milly up around 7:30.  Heard her stomp across the floor and bang on her door as I was trying to get the dogs to go downstairs quietly.  She rested in bed with me and Amanda for a bit, then we all played around for a little while. Nick picked me up and we took a long route to the Cains’.  The Cape Fear Memorial Bridge was closed so traffic was way backed up on 74 and the Isabella Homes Bridge.  Even worse traffic trying to get from Leland to Wilmington. Helped the Cains pack, total of about ten people so it went pretty fast.  Going to miss them. Nick and I were trying to decide how to get back home …

Working Out with Kevin

Yesterday, Kevin Millard invited me to try out a workout that he was going to check out himself this morning.  It’s a company with a mobile gym that sets up on different mornings at different parks and does various intense workouts.  I might him at his house this morning and he, his brother-in-law Daniel, and I went to do it. Okay, I haven’t worked out in a while, but I have done P90X here and there.  The workout they were doing today was upper and lower body with a bit of a core workout thrown in.  Each exercise was thirty seconds and you ended up doing them twice.  The first thing I did was a sled push, which seemed easy …

Introduction to Cinderella

Karen took Milly to Topsail today.  Some cousins on her dad’s side were there.  Anna, who also went up there for a visit, brought Milly back home a little after 5:00, just a few minutes before Amanda got home from work. I got quite a bit done, and while I say this often, I’m pretty close to being caught up, which actually isn’t a bad thing.  I’ve got a lot of my own stuff I need to catch up on, like updating the portfolio.  I’ve also been considering a new design for the site.  On top of all that I’ve got a new service that I really want to put a big focus on, and if that goes well it …

Heartbreaker

I worked from about 9:30 to 7:30 today.  I had pancakes with the girls somewhere in that time, and I also took some short breaks, like when I went upstairs to tickle Milly and let her use me as a jungle gym for a bit, or when she wanted me and Amanda to dance with her to Mickey Mouse Clubhouse‘s Hot Dog Song.  But for the most part I did a lot of stuff on some websites and another one is now pretty much done.  I’ve got one big one I want to focus on for next week. Amanda and Milly went out a couple times today. Amanda’s dad, Phil, called a couple minutes after Milly had gone down for a nap …

Milly’s First Putt Putt

Worked over half the day. Want to be able to relax and enjoy Labor Day weekend next week. Took Milly to Jungle Rapids to play mini golf. Almost got a hole in one on her very first attempt! Started getting a little impatient towards the end, but she did well.  Would have ben even more awesome because you get a free game if you get a hole in one on the first and 18th holes. I almost had a hold in one, but as my ball was about to go in some random kid stepped on the green right in front of my ball as he was walking through.  I was just about livid.  I mean, it ultimately didn’t matter, …
