We need body-rockin', not perfection Let me get some action from the back section
I avoid using the word 'busy', but sometimes, it's inevitable. Usually, busy is a way to describe priorities. Someone may say something like, "I wish I could volunteer more, but I'm just so busy!" But that same person may spend hours per
Our boy has never had a haircut. Neither has Mackenzie! I've trimmed his bangs and tried to clean it up once or twice, but that's it. This weekend I noticed
We were talking a few weeks ago, and it came up that, somehow, our house doesn't feel like "home" in the same ways that our 1 bedroom condo felt like home. The reason for this isn't clear - we moved here 2
My dad was here today. It's been 11 months since he's been in town, and I'm grateful that he gets to spend time with my kids and with our family.
Allie had a fantastic idea tonight. There was talk about going to the park, but it was getting a bit late. What will easily overshadow a walk to the park?
It's been a rough day. A rough week... Month? Year?? I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, and for the most part it's just a matter
I've started and stopped a half dozen ideas tonight. There's a lot to talk about, but stringing together a narrative is proving difficult. I have some fragments of ideas for
We run a small business together while raising a young family. Literally a Mom & Pop operation. Our business is in an industry that encourages - almost requires - spending
I try not to make a big deal out of it, because I'm afraid to jinx it: with only one or two exceptions, I've managed to do yoga every day
Another throttle wasn't the only order on Saturday. We received an order for a jewelry tree as well. The first of these I made just over a year ago, I
I've had a lot coming at me from many directions lately. I've felt anxious. It's been hard to keep moving. I have an especially difficult time with interacting with people
In September of 2007, I took my last solo trip. I went to DrupalCon Barcelona, and then spent nine days on my own, staying at hostels and wandering the streets
I did it. After months of designing, machining, tapping, threading, soldering, troubleshooting, reworking, fretting, printing, fixing printers, testing, and fretting (yeah, it's in there twice). I've finally boxed up the
I'd been chatting with her for about a week. For some reason, my email managed to catch her attention. We exchanged a few messages, and then I invited her to
Today is the 10th anniversary of the day we met! Tens are a big deal to us: we married on 10/10/10, and do our best to celebrate the
It's been awhile since I posted. I'm not going to apologize for that. We've been through some big changes, and I've been through even bigger changes as I work to
Nana got Mackenzie a cute, programable stuffed dog last summer when she was visiting for Mackenzie's birthday and surgery. Scout hasn't been horribly interesting to Kenzie up to this point,
I am emotional, exhausted, and proud of myself. Still fighting the lingering threat of a cold, I pulled off one of my most physically demanding days -- and I did
Limes. I like limes. Fresh lime juice in a cocktail. A wedge of lime amongst the garnish for a plate of Pad Thai or bowl of Pho. Little sections to
Today was a bit of a letdown, but it led to some downtime that I needed anyway. I planned on going to Crashed Ice with a local photography meetup group.
Mackenzie has been more and more into her books of late. She's always enjoyed them, and enjoyed the nightly ritual of Mom or Dad reading one to her. She loves
Heading back to the car in a parking garage this evening, I spot something strange in the stairwell. Someone has taken this photo, and stabbed it onto the bolt of
Our girl really does have an amazing smile. I snapped a bunch of pictures of her in the kitchen tonight with my phone. Unfortunately they're all blurry messes, but it
