Ways to embarrass your parents and other odds and ends.
It has been a fairly uneventful week. Nathan (3) is growing up. Earlier this week he was in our bed at 6 AM, and he started talking in his sleep. He was pretty loud. "I need some more money!" He dosed off for a while. "Guys, can I please have some money?" he asked again a few minutes later. Since he said please, I slipped a quarter into his clinched hand. Andee and I where chuckling at him. He seemed to be sound asleep. "Guys, why you laughing?" he yelled, agitated. That didn't help his cause much.
Sunday we went to see the African Children's Choir at a Life Center. Our kids where pretty restless, and distracting. The Life Center is a church that we used to attend before our current church was planted. They recently built a very large and modern facility. The auditorium is a huge square room with the stage in the corner. We sat down toward the very front, at the outer edge next to the aisle that is against the wall. Because the corner of the building has a bit of an addition on it to house the stage, there where two structural columns on the wall, just across the aisle from where we where sitting. During the 30 minutes we waited for the performance to start, we allowed the kids to play in the aisle. Nathan, who isn't remotely interested in potty training yet, discovered these two pillars, and pretended that the little cubby was a urinal. He didn't remove his diaper or anything, just assumed the position.
Two weeks left before vacation!
I mowed the lawn today. It was getting pretty bad, but I was much better off than Jess was.
I got my PlasmaCAM demo DVD in the mail Friday. I keep trying to show it off to folks, but nobody is nerdy enough to truly enjoy it. I bet that machine could pay for itself pretty quickly, If I happen across a few thousand dollars, perhaps I can start my own metal cutting business.
Tomorrow is my last day of BSF for the year. I am going to try to go all of the way through Philippians and Romans over the summer.
Well, that is enough gibberish for one night.
