Technical Difficulties

So we’re coasting along, have a great ol’ show today on The Catholics Next Door when suddenly *BAM!* the ISDN line died. We were talking about the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit, getting ready to speak with Tim Drake and then later on Fr. Dwight Longenecker, and then without warning, we were left hanging […]

My coffee has eyeballs and my livingroom is now portable!

Does this ever happen to you? Perhaps it’s just a senseo thing. Here’s the model I made of our livingroom.  It’s collapsable so that it would fit in my purse.  I went on to tape pieces of transparency film over each “wall” so that I could draw different art concepts on the walls and then […]

Anyone Up For a Game of Tetris?

We got a new dishwasher a couple months ago when the other one died. After it was installed, the dishwasher leaked, was repaired, and then leaked some more. The result? Water damage. After two months, the floor boards have started to separate and we now have something that looks like a giant Tetris game on […]

Can’t Believe We Got So Excited Over a Coat Rack

In the midst of our home renovations of the past three months (yes, it’s been going on that long), we removed a small coat-rack we had in our foyer. It was a gift from somebody (I thought it was Jennifer’s mom, but then my sister made me think it was her). It looked like a […]

Strikes (and all sorts of random stuff)!

For some reason, I just couldn’t get a blog post completed last week, so here’s another mammoth posting with tons of completely unrelated pictures and links. For starters, here is what our fancy-schmancy new strike sheet looks like. We talked about this on “The Catholics Next Door” last week, but basically, we’ve allotted the four […]

New Couch, Jennifer’s Drink, and Links a Lot

This morning I’m sitting on our brand new sectional sofa. We’re loving this thing. We actually have enough room now that the whole family can have a seat in the living room. It’s quite comfortable. While I’m working away, Jennifer comes in carrying a cup of froo-froo coffee. She’s quite proud. She took a normal […]

I gave blood and voted all in one week!

Yesterday our parish was doing a blood drive. I’m trying to get back in the habit of donating. I have no idea how many times I’ve looked through this booklet: And I have no idea how many times I’ve filled out this form. I’m still 6’5″. This is the worst part. I HATE getting the […]

This Made Me Feel Better

The day after the last Presidential debate, this video made me feel better. The story behind it is this guy, Matt Harding, had a silly dance he does. I have a silly dance I do that only Jennifer or our kids see when they’re in a bad mood. No one can resist my silly dance. […]

Moose TV, Greg’s Write-In Vote, and Tons O’Links

Victorious. After three weeks, there’s no other word for how it felt to finally be mounting our television on our living room wall. Such a ridiculously good feeling. Things are coming together, at last. After seeing the photo to the left, I realized I was past due for a haircut, as well. I look like […]

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 […]
