The total amount of rain was 6.5 inches at my house yesterday. It is not raining now, but it is cold and wet.

Tuesday, March 18, 2008


My rain gauge only holds 5 inches and right now (4:30 pm) it is a 4.8”. I am going to keep watching it and dump it out when it gets to five and see how much more rain we get tonight. Of course Oso will not go near a door, he would not even leave the house and walk into the garage when I went to check the mail.

Spring Break

I know all of you are just dying to know what I am doing for my spring break so I thought I would let you in on what I have done so far.

Took Oso to vet for yearly check up
Went to Library
Went to hardware store for Heather's gloves
Picked up my medicine
Worked out for an hour
Watched Cheaper by The Dozen 2 and Game Plan
Started reading a book about being a dad
When to Life Group and ate and played games

Tuesday: (not even 11 am yet)
Unloaded dishwasher
Went back to Library
Grocery shopping

So I have been keeping myself busy and I have not taken any naps, yet. I hope your days are as good and blessed as mine.

We need ideas for baby names. We don't know what gender our baby is going to be so we need both girl and boys names, and we just don't know. Any ideas? Of course you will not know if we liked your suggestions until the baby is born. We have already looked at endless list of names and nothing is really jumping out to either one of us. And no we are not going to name the baby after you, if you are lucky it might use some close family names for middle names.

I starting off this Saturday as all Saturday's should start, by sleeping late. After getting up and eating some eggs and sausage with my wonderful wife my day began. Started off my walking for 30 minutes on the treadmill. After my walk, Heather cut my hair and then we gave our greatness of a dog (Oso) a bath. He hates getting a bath, but he is always very well behaved. Well, after getting Oso clean, I took a shower. I was going to take a shower pretty quickly after bathing Oso, but for some reason it was two hours later and I was laying of the our bed for all of that time before I took my shower. After the shower we had lunch and it was time to head out to a wedding. Two good friends of mine from work got married this afternoon. It was a very short wedding, which I like, and a long reception afterwards. So, now we are home and both tired and ready for an early bed time. Hope your Saturday was as good and laid back as ours.

New Toy

Heather and I bought a new toy this afternoon. We purchased a Sony Hanycam DCR-SR42. The cool thing is that buy ordering it on-line we saved $170 dollars, and we were able to pick it up at the store (no shipping charge) so we already have it. We stopped at the store on the way home from Aunt Jenni's just to test the camcorders out and make sure we got the right one. Earlier today I got an e-mail about the on-line discounts. After testing the camcorders we then came home and order it on-line and 15 minutes late we were back at the store to pick it up. A little inconvenient, but we save a lot of money.
