I finally gave in

I’ve been resisting the facebook surge for quite some time now. I did Myspace for a while, and I just wasn’t that thrilled with it, but my wife finally convinced me to get on facebook – (She actually set up an account for me then all I had to do was confirm.) So, after a month or so of waiting to decided if I should or not (I still wasn’t sure that facebook might be the meddling of the anti-christ) I have finally given in. If you’re interested in adding me – you can do so through facebook. Share...

My Wonderful Wife

I just thought I’d take a second a brag about my wonderful wife. We’ve been in the process of moving for about a month now, and she’s been amazing. She packed our entire house while taking care of a two year old and an infant. Since we’ve been at our new house she’s been an unpacking fool, getting the house set up and looking great, as well as painting and a whole slew of other things. I take her for granted so much, but I’m so blessed to have someone as wonderful as her. Thank you for all the amazing things you do for our family, and the sacrifices you make! Share...

Starting to like Garage Band

So, I’m not really a Mac guy. I have a hard time rationalizing spending ,000 on a computer I could get for 0. And even though PC’s have gotten a bad name lately, I still think they are the best decision for most people. They’re the most commonly accepted platform – worldwide, there are many more companies that offer complete support for them, and most people can afford one. I don’t think Mac’s are more stable than PC’s, my Mac has crashed many times, My PC has crashed too, but when it crashes I can trace it back to a component on the computer that has gone bad, that I bought for cheap. When my Mac crashes I can’t do that. The Mac is supposed to have all great components, made by mac (According to one of their recent commercials) so they’re higher quality. I’m not convinced. My mac will crash at random times, and I lose information, just like I would on a PC. However, I’m really starting to like Garage band on my mac. I used it today to make some practice CD’s for our choir, and it’s growing increasingly easy. I just drop a recording into Garage Band from my hard drive or iTunes, then with my M-audio Radium 49 – which you can get on ebay for 50 bucks – I play the Soprano, Alto,...

Reasons not to have a garage sale

So, we’re having a garage sale today, (actually my wife is doing the garage sale while I am inside with the kids). And I’ve pretty much decided we’re never doing this again. Here are some reasons why: The paper could get your ad wrong and have people show up an hour earlier than you expected. You can say in your ad “no earlies” but that means nothing to most “earlies.” Those “earlies” will ring your doorbell repeatedly, just to let you know they’re there. (As if you hadn’t noticed the 10 cars in front of your house, and heard their conversations. It takes way more time to separate the stuff you want to sell (half of which is stuff you bought at a garage sale in years past), set up the sale, and man the sale than the money you will take in will give you per hour. Some old biddy will knock a jar of pickled peppers off the table, making a huge mess. The same old biddy will try to help you clean up the mess, and in the process ruin your kitchen broom. Your wife will have to hold your daughter while you clean up the mess. Before you get the mess cleaned up, your daughter will walk through the pickle juice in her socks. Your garage will now smell like pickle juice. By the time...

Like being on Vacation, without the Vacation

My wife and I are moving. I accepted a job at a new church last November and have been commuting 56 miles one way, for the last 7 months. We’re very excited that we have sold our house and have bought a house where our new church is. The interesting thing about it is that my wife has been packing stuff in boxes for months now, and for the last two weeks has really been hitting it hard. She’s great! The thing is, that it’s kind of like being on vacation. We’re getting more and more to the point of having only the essentials out for our living necessities, and more and more of it is in boxes. It’s not like a vacation though because we’re moving the boxes and doing things that I wouldn’t normally consider fun. However, in light of the fact that we will be getting a brand new home, and really a brand new life, it makes it all worth it. I’m sore, and I’m tired, but I’m thankful. Share...
