Child labor

Hope I'm not arrested for this... But, hey, why else do we have them? Also, I've been sick.

Why, oh why?

Why do we push ourselves too hard on the first sign of rebound from illness? Having been down for nearly a week, after going into work today, I've now cleaned out a trunk, swapped batteries from one vehicle to another, and spent quite a while working on a potential spare computer, including crawling around under my desk hooking my keyboard and monitor back to this computer after failing to get the potential spare running.

And now I sit, sweating, panting, barely able to move my fingers... silly human, just rest and recover, for goodness' sake!

To all out there who are sick and think you're now on the mend, I offer this proposal: W A I T!!! Just take it easy for a little while longer. You'll be better soon, no need to rush it.

Feelin' foolish

For my son's birthday he wanted to go see the GI Joe movie. We were going to see the 4 o'clock showing, meaning we would arrive after the previews started because they got off the bus at 3:50. So, we were in a rush. Got the tickets but the lady didn't say which theatre (number). In a rush I glanced at the ticket, saw "cinema 14," and we headed there. Got in, got seated, and realized, hey, the movie's already showing... And it's only 8 minutes after 4. Weird. Anyway, appeared to not have missed much, were enjoying the movie, and it abruptly ended around 5:10. Strange... Was supposed to be a 2 hour and 10 minute movie. Looking at the ticket... Oops, it was in "theatre 6"... The "cinema 14" was part of "premiere cinema 14." Boy did I feel bad, having now ruined the movie he wanted to see for his birthday! And foolish. I went to the counter and explained the situation, and they're letting us see the 5:15. In theatre 14! Oops.

Good quote

In the sermon yesterday, our pastor said, "[for believers] sinning should be the exception, not the norm." I wonder how many believers really believe that?

Salt n' vinegar crickets?

Yeah, I ate one. About one calorie. My third child brought them back from a vacation with his friend. Fun...

Here are friends and family

Here is a quick pic of friends and family while we're at the beach in Gulf Shores. Fun!
