The Pits: A problem popped up with our site’s MySQL server 30 minutes before I was supposed to leave. I had to stay a little late to remedy the problem.
The Peaks: The boys were bickering in the car on the way to school this morning. In an attempt to make them stop, I asked them each to say 2 nice things about the other. This worked surprisingly well and led to a positive discussion for all of us. #FatherOfTheYear
The boys weren’t very cooperative when the family got home. I did the bedtime routine to let Traci decompress. We’ve been reading Exploring Calvin and Hobbes: An Exhibition Catalogue and tonight the boys laughed uncontrollably at this strip. This was the first time they’ve had a legitimate laugh at the comic and I hope it inspires them to continue reading.
After putting the boys to bed, I set to work on staining the tabletop with the Classic Gray stain that Traci and I had agreed on. Hopefully, this will be the final time I stain this tabletop. The final image below was taken the next morning after the stain had dried.
