The Office Is Coming Together

The office is coming together again. Last night Ily and I put together the first new desk and system control has moved back out of our bedroom. Ily, of all the most sound sleepers there are, couldn’t sleep when the computer was on at night in our room. I ...

The system was down

Well, since I know you all check the website daily, hourly, every minute even, you might have noticed a lack of availability this afternoon. While we are “remodeling” our office (ie painting) we have moved the computer that acts as our server upstairs to our bedroom where it is temporarily ...

Reece Turns One

Reece turned one year old on Saturday. My parents came over and we got together with them and Melinda, Benj, and Jason to celebrate. Ily made a nice gift cake for Reece, who had a great time eating it (and so did the rest of us). The weather was rainy ...

Strawberries and Whipped Cream

Strawberries are ripe! Strawberries have to be the coolest thing to have in your garden. Ever. You just plant them once (or they come pre-planted when you buy your house, as was the case with us), and they just keep producing every year. We hardly do anything to maintain them ...
