Carpet Not Included

The contractors finished the conversion today of turning our screened-in porch into a new room for our first daughter (due in late January). It’s been a difficult week juggling so many things, and also painting so many rooms. There is still a lot to do in the next few weeks, plus the one thing the […]

Waiting for Batman

It’s been a busy day for us. This morning the Archdiocese held its annual Rosary Rally and Jennifer and I had been invited to lead the first decade or praying the Rosary in English.  Other decades were recited in French, Spanish, Vietnamese, and Tagalog. It was a pretty neat event and both Archbishop Gregory and […]

If you’re interested in getting involved in incredibly meaningful mission work, please be sure to check out Mustard Seed Communities. Janice has been encouraging us to go on a trip to help out with Mustard Seed, and the more I hear about […]

The Project That Ate The Kitchen

Two weeks ago last night our friend Moose can over and we started a simple project to extend a cable in our living room wall from Point A to Point B. Should have been simple enough. Alas, two weeks later what was a simple job in the living room now includes almost all of the […]

Too. Stinkin’. Funny.

We have a bunch of Star Wars fans in this house, so we’re looking forward to the premiere of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on the Cartoon Network tonight. While looking for a preview to play on today’s The Catholics Next Door, I came across this teaser for the show that just cracked me up.

Run, Fatboy, Run!

Last night we watched Run Fatboy Run (Rated PG-13 for some rude and sexual humor, nudity, language, and smoking) and have to admit to laughing quite hard several times during the movie. Watching it, of course, got us thinking about my first (and so far only) marathon that I ran last Thanksgiving. I’m sad that […]

Daddy Carhead

I have this crazy idea (and I’ve had it for almost 11 years now) that I can actually sit on the couch in the living room and attempt to get some work done while the kids play around me. I usually end up with kids crawling all over me and toys on the top of […]

Strong Woman

Well, thanks to Dr. Meg Meeker, one of our guests today, I think I’m actually starting to look forward to having a baby girl, and not just another baby.  Dr. Meeker has written a ton on the subject of raising kids, including Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters, as well as the new book, Boys Should Be […]

Magnificat, Bible Studies, and a Gross Picture

Amazing topics on today’s show. For those of you keeping track, Universalis is the place I recommended for Liturgy of the Hours online. Someone else called in and recommended eBreviery (sorry, I can’t remember who it was!) Thanks to Paul Snatchko from Magnificat Magazine for stopping by the program, as well. You can request a […]

Waiting For Gas

Just pulled up to a gas station that had no gas yesterday. Two lines have formed that are approximately 10 cars deep, so I have about 20 cars ahead of me. Now, a few minutes later, it’s a parking lot. Jennifer filled the van this morning and had to wait about 25 minutes. I’ve got […]

Looking Like a Wall!

Well, what do you know! Our friend Moose was right! And, as evidenced by the picture to the left, our dog really likes him, too. On Sunday night we started our project of running some wires through the wall in order to hang a television above our fireplace. The problem is that there weren’t any […]
