Around The Water Cooler!

Hey Everyone!

Last night we ran to the store, and ended up picking up some slippers for Everett. They are too cute not to share so here we go!

That was last night as well as him climbing on his Diaper box and dancing to the theme from Gilmore Girls.

This morning he was still loving them.

I hope my boy can brighten your Friday! I hope to see you back again Tuesday! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

What A Weekend!

Hey Everyone!

This weekend was a fun one for me. I didn’t just sit at home the whole time and wish the weather was better.

We were trying to dodge the Flu though, and I think my wife lost that battle. I for one, am still doing fine for the most part. I have a stuffy head, but she is feeling all the aches and pains. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

We can start off of Saturday! I woke up bright and early and got ready, like normal, because….I had a Masonic seminar most of the day. It was about an hour and a half away and my cousin and one other guy were going with. We left our city at about 7am and teh meeting started at 9am. I corresponded with my wife’s grandpa, so I could drop offย  our documents for taxes. Two birds. One stone. ๐Ÿ˜‰ We arrived a bit early, like you should, and signed in. We continued down aย  line of tables and got our folder with information for the day and then the good stuff. Next came the doughnuts and coffee! I had too many doughnuts and that is all I’ll say, but they were good.

The meeting was for people looking to move through the ranks in lodge. It covered everything, in basic form, you would need to run a lodge as a Worshipful Master for a whole year. We were able to asks questions in an open format and have a couple good conversations. There were mentors and District Deputy Grand Masters there from all over the state. So, lots of knowledge there for the picking! These type of events are fun, because you can really get a sense of how big the organization is and how big of an impact they make on the community. For lunch we had some homemade sloppy Joe’s, egg salad sandwiches, veggies, soup, and apple pie. Afterwards we had a presentation of organ donation and blood donations. As a Mason, signed up for the blood club, you are able to ensure that if you ever need blood that we will get it. This is of course after insurance pays for what they can. It also covers your immediate family, so that is very nice to be a part of. We finished up our little lecture and were out of there around 1:30pm. We waited around a bit and my wife’s mom brought over some frozen goods we should have had the weekend we didn’t go back. I guess you can retract my previous statement and say we killed three birds with one stone. ๐Ÿ˜€

Sunday we wanted to get out a little bit since, other than my meeting, we had been cooped up for a while. Everett has gotten over the Flu and we figured some fresh are was much deserved. The weather was somewhat chilly but it felt good to me, with the appropriate attire. So we went for our first walk all winter! We made sure to bundle Everett up as best we could:

We were able to sit him up more since he is bigger. He seemed to like being able to see more. I was wondering how much he would remember since developmentally he hadn’t really been on a walk in months. He can now see further and start to understand his surroundings. We also had to stop and take a nice family photo along the way:

Everett didn’t seem overly thrilled but I assure you he had a good time. Our dog was with us too but good luck getting her to hold still!

After our walk we watched a movie, which was not particularly good. I would have reviewed it but I am fairly busy at work today. I can tell you it was Spectre, the James Bond flick. I know it is a couple years old, but I can tell you that IMDB.com has it at a 6.8 I would go lower than that. It was very disappointing in my eyes. The story was there but just about everything turned me off from it. Either way it was nice to stop doing everything and watch a movie. The rest of the day my wife edited some pictures, Everett played beside us in the attic, and I was able to get a few games in. Over all it was a good weekend.

Today I am jam packed with things to do. I have to collect a urine sample from our female dog, and get it tested again to make sure her UTI is gone. Then it is off to Everett’s nine month appointment. This is where he will get a ton of shots and be mad at us for a short time haha. By the way….Everett is nine months old, I failed to mention that last Thrusday! Woo!

That is all for me today, I hope you all had a great weekend, and I’ll see you back again tomorrow! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€

Ill, Disaster, & Bringing It Back!

Hey Everyone!

Well it looks like we are all going to get sick like we thought. :/ My wife and I started feeling it yesterday or so. We are both at work today, because, well, you know. No time to take off haha. Well not entirely, but we have to be strategic about how we use it. I may be using some tomorrow, if I get worse, and she can’t take off to stay with Everett. By the way, he still have a slight fever so he is home the rest of the week. So if you don’t hear from me tomorrow, well, I’m not here. ๐Ÿ˜€ If I don’t take off tomorrow I’ll probably take of Monday, if I can, and If I’m still sick. I can only assume we are going to feel real bad this weekend, that is why I’m planning things this way. I really just hope that Everett doesn’t get this crap again after he gets rid of it.

In other news, my morning was going pretty well, until I spilled a whole cup of coffee on myself haha. It was a nice fresh cup, full to the brim. I think I went to grab at it, clearly missed, and dropped it. It went all over my desk on my shirt and pants, and all over my plastic floor mat. DOH! That felt good, thankfully I wasn’t burned in anyway. That would have been really embarrassing haha. ย  I do have a nice large stain on my shirt and pants for the rest of the day… :/ I’m going to try to stay in my office as much as possible the rest of the day. But heck with all that going on this morning, maybe I should have have “Coffee Talk” today lol. ๐Ÿ˜€

Keeping it scattered, I have been wanting to start drawling again. I am pretty good, nothing amazing I’m sure but I always excelled in most things art related. That being music, painting, drawing, stuff like that. I never continued much after the burden of real life bogged me down, but I would like to, even if just for a short time, get back into it. I have been thinking about bringing my wife’s secondary camera with me in the car, so that I can stop alone the road when I see an amazing landscape. I want to get a sketch pad and work on my fine lines and images. I had my ukulele out for a while and now I have it stored away with a dead tuner, so I haven’t touched that in a while.

I would love to get back into skateboarding, but I am for sure way too out of shape for that at the moment. I still have my last board, I could tool around on it this summer a bit. I may be able to even take it on walks with my family and dog. Who knows. I just want to bring back what used to give me so much joy. I have gotten too far away from things I used to love, and honestly still do. I just have excuses as to why I don’t do them anymore. I either don’t have time, or am just too lazy to do so. To be fair after a long day of work and with a new baby it is harder to find time, but maybe I can start squeezing some of this back into my life. Since college I have filled most of my free time with video games. I do love them too, but I have not done that other stuff because of it. Hell I even love working on cars, I just don’t have the money or the vehicle to fix or modify. lol

Hopefully I can work on these things. I hope you can reflect on things like this as well, and who knows maybe pick up something you put down years ago!

I’ll be back again tomorrow, maybe. I’ll see ya when I see ya! ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜€
