Hot Wheels Resurrected

Hot Wheels Resurrected

The Pits: Cold 20 degree run with Trek this morning. The Peaks: I left work so early I didn’t have time for a post-lunch walk. I got home in time to pick up the boys from school, so I had a nice, leisurely walk around the school. We then went to the park and threw… Read more »

Lunch Date

Lunch Date

The Pits: Having lunch at 11:30am makes the rest of the day just crawl right by. Turner had received new Jordan Nike’s for Christmas and wore them for the first time today. He then got barely noticeable grass stains on them and got dramatic about it. You’d have thought we’d told him he wasn’t allowed… Read more »

The Pits: The most interesting thing about my day was seeing this new car that one of Turner’s friends gave him. The Peaks: I had a good meeting with my team to establish our AMP goals. Already, Traci and I already started discussing our Seaside vacation plans already.

The Pits: Lots of phone calls and meetings today. The Peaks: I had a dentist appointment and although it was stormy and overcast most of the day, I was able to ride my bike to the dentist’s office. I finished reading The New One Minute Manager by Ken Blanchard. I can see why it’s a… Read more »

Pack Packing

The Pits: Typical Monday. The Peaks: At tonight’s Pack Meeting, we had a visit from a Franklin Police Office and ran through some of his tools and duties for the kids. It’s always interesting to learn more about police work and the kids seemed to enjoy it too. Weston probably could’ve joined in, but he… Read more »

Super Bowl 2017

The Pits: Would’ve liked to have seen the Falcons win, but it was a good game regardless. The Peaks: Recently, we’ve noticed a decrease in water pressure on our kitchen faucet. It finally got to the point of ridiculousness, so I looked into what could be causing the issue. It turns out it just needed… Read more »

The Pits: Spent a considerable amount of time sitting on hard bleachers. The Peaks: Turner scored a goal in his basketball game and his team won 17-15. Again, he didn’t know whether his team had won or lost until I told him on the way home. Weston’s game was next. He scored twice, but at… Read more »

Backseat Deathpump

The Pits: When I got home from work, I realized I’d lost a small screw from my glasses. Fortunately, I was able to steal one off a pair of Traci’s old sunglasses and got to use my Helping Hands to install the new screw. The Peaks: Instructed the boys on how to pump up their… Read more »

Northfork Bat Attack

Northfork Bat Attack

The Pits: I’m not certain, but it’s possible that Trek was accosted by a bat during this morning’s run. The Peaks: I came home to find this artwork laying out and I had a hard time understanding what I was looking at. Finished listening to the audiobook, Never Split the Difference: Negotiating As If Your… Read more »

The Pits: Lots of little tech issues popped up during the day. Bad traffic on the way home. The Peaks: Today was Weston’s 100th day in Kindergarten. He came home with all kinds of “100” themed crafts. I had a quiet dinner when I got home because the family was at basketball practice. I walked… Read more »
