Dunks, Waffles, Books and Visitors

I volunteered at church this morning, running cameras.  It was a nice week to do it because I had the honor of helping film the baptism of Glenn, one of the other camera/production volunteers.  I don’t know him really well, but we work together sometimes and he’s always been good to talk to. On top of that, there was a waffle station set up backstage for the volunteers, and it made some of the best, light waffles I’ve ever had.  Aaron, one of the other camera guys, joked with me because I put powdered sugar, syrup and whipped cream on mine.  We likened it to Buddy the Elf and he called it a Dotsey waffle. And then, on top of …

Finally Taken

Today was mostly overcast and a little bit drizzly, so it was one of those days where once we got home from church and Mayfaire (along with a stop at Target), we didn’t feel like doing much. At Target Milly wanted to ride in a cart with two seats attached to the front, which Amanda and I relented on and allowed, though it was ridiculous because the thing was huge and we hardly had anything in the cart.  We went there to get pullups, which Milly just ran out of, but we also looked for jean shorts, which she needs for a dance event next week, and a belt, because some of her pants show her booty every time she …

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 …
