Flat as a Lake

Amanda and I got up a bit early today to take care of some things then went to Cracker Barrel for breakfast.  They had a huge display of Tar Heel crap when you first walk in which made me want to vomit and leave, but the Mama’s French Toast breakfast is really good so we stuck around and ate. When we got home Amanda cleaned up the house a bit while I mowed the yard.  The little gas can I filled up a couple years ago when Amanda’s parents, Karen and Phil Mercer, first gave us the lawn mower has finally been emptied.  So we’ve gone about two years on a gallon of gasoline.  Wish our cars did that. Speaking …

Dinner and Rock Band

I showed those designs to Amanda today.  She wanted to see a black version, so I whipped that up, then she thought there should be some color in the header, so we added some blue.  Then I added the little flourish and fixed the site name.  She hasn’t seen a few of the modifications yet.  This is what I’ve got so far. We were out of cereal this morning and I wanted some, so I decided to run by the grocery store real quick.  Life and Cinnamon Toast Crunch were both on sale so I decided to get one of each of those.  When I got to the checkout lane though, I discovered that I couldn’t find my check card.  …

Photo Site Designs

Amanda convinced me that I need to work on a photography site, and she’s right.  I wanted to do something pretty simple so I looked at a few other sites to get some ideas and these are what I came up with and I just need to decide if I want to go light or dark.  I’m leaning heavily towards dark, but I want to get some input from some other people first. Thoughts?  Feel free to leave a comment.  To do so click on the place at the top under the title where it says “Comments” and it’ll take you to where you can leave one.  I don’t expect anyone to actually leave one, but it would be nice, …

September 3rd Small Group

I did end up watching both the BBC’s Robin Hood and HBO’s Deadwood last night. I sent an e-mail out this morning to the members of our small group strongly urging everyone to show up for our September 3rd meeting.  Amanda and I have chosen that time to have a discussion about commitment and what people are trying to get out of the group.  Kyle called me a little bit after I sent it and we decided to meet for lunch.  We discussed several things, including the decision to lead a new small group, which he and Lorin have been praying about. Work was really busy.  Lots to do yesterday, lots to do today, lots to do tomorrow. After work …

Work Left at Home

I woke up a little after 8:00 to the sound of the phone ringing next to the bed.  Amanda had left something at home that she needed for work, so I got myself up and ran it there for her.  On the way back home I stopped by Michael’s Port City Java and let him pour me some orange juice and got a blueberry muffin.  Good stuff. I got back home just after 9:00 and proceeded to be pretty busy all day.  I’ll likely be pretty busy again tomorrow.  That’s okay though- I’ve set some goals for myself and keeping busy helps get me closer to them.  I feel pretty wiped out though. Amanda made some egg and cheese sandwiches …
