Tom & Jerry

The kids really like Spongebob Squarepants.  I find it pretty funny and I tolerate it.  It’s something “we both like”.  However, in general, we watch and don’t make any sounds. The kids love Tom & Jerry.  I can’t stand it, never could.  It’s just slapstick.  However, when the kids watch it, they laugh OUT LOUD […]

My Family is Sick

All three kids are coughing with a fever.  What’s up with that?  It’s like a germ factory in here!  Next, Katie will get sick.  For some reason, it rarely affects me.  When I was a kid, I had to fake being sick the night before and then follow through in the morning.  That way my […]

A Terrible Accident

A truck was coming down the hill near Molly Stone’s.  The brakes failed.  The truck couldn’t slow down.  It careened helplessly into the Molly Stones parking lot.  All of my family has been in that exact spot a hundred times.  We walk across the parking lot with just a quick glance for cars.  We weren’t […]

The UX of the San Mateo County Fair

This weekend is just me and the boys.  It is not terribly hard, but we are watching way more TV than usual.  I am tired and my brain doesn’t work as well.  Katie feels this every day. 🙁 We went to the San Mateo County Fair on Friday.  It was pretty lame.  I remember seeing […]

Matthew Drivers License

They give these out at Matthew’s preschool for passing a tricycle test. Great smile. He saw it and said, “I’m wearing my monkey shirt there.” Pretty good for a 4 year old.

Memories and Technology

Back when I had more hair.  Jared looks so happy.  Time flies. I got a new scanner, the CanoScan 4400F.  So far, it’s pretty impressive.  I am scanning Katie and my wedding album.  Ahh memories and new technology.  What more can I ask for?
