We are blessed with an abundance of good kids/families, with whom we have significant prior experience, on Nathan’s soccer team this fall.
Did you mom and/or dad ever say “this hurts me more than it hurts you” when you got spanked, or grounded, or otherwise punished? Wow, do I ever know what they meant now. Nate hasn’t done what we agreed he’d do for his allowance, even after I warned him once. So I had to remove it. Right now, as I type, he’s sitting in his room crying and thinking about how terrible I am. I’m sitting in my study hating that I had to tell him he was being punished when he got home from his piano lesson. Being Dad is fun most of the time, but definitely not always.
How many browsers have you married? I went—I think—Mosaic, Netscape, Internet Explorer, Opera, Firefox. Never used anything else with any consistency. Now I’m split between Firefox and IE because of the varying experiences in different environments.
Washed and dried my Fitbug pedometer. Guess what? That’s not good for small, solid state devices. That rendered it nonfunctional (but quite clean). Replaced it with a Fitbit. Should have had one of these all along.
Had occasion to investigate Del Taco locations today in the course of thinking about a fall day trip, and was delighted to discover that Del Taco has returned to Alabama. Now they’re way the hell down there in Dothan, but they’ve still returned to the state. Commence the lobbying for a northern Alabama location!
A mama raccoon and an adorable little baby raccoon were about three seconds ahead of the Technical Writing Express crossing Palmer Rd. yesterday afternoon. Glad they made it.
