Run, Forrest, Run

Today was supposed to be a strength-training day at the gym, but considering the 8k is coming up next Saturday, and that everything has been going to crap regarding my training for it (no running yesterday since Sam’s school was out due to the cold and Eric didn’t want us to go out in the …

Derby

Well, we had the Cub Scout pinewood derby last night. Our car finished pretty far down in the rankings, unfortunately. That’s us in lane 3, looking – amazingly – like a car built by a six-year-old. And that was with a lot of help! Not many of the really, really good-looking cars were made by …

Bad day?

I don’t work in an office anymore, but this made me laugh hard.

School Fun

So apparently Sam’s school does a yearly first-grade musical, with costumes, dance numbers, and a lot of bang for the buck. I heard people mention it before, but I wasn’t aware until today just how big this thing gets; in past years, supposedly, they’ve had audiences of over 1,000, with people lining up outside the …

Current status on Push Toward Independence

Gabe can now dress himself, even his socks, and he really would like me to let him wear his underwear, not a Pull-Up, to bed at night. The child is master of “No, I can do it myself!”, as well as stubborn about what he does and does not want to put on his body …
