Another month with very positive progress. And I wasn't even trying particularly hard. That's a good thing, isn't it?

It has been one heckuva weird day. I wish I could go into details, but it's work related and I tend to shy away from work blogging, as you know, unless it's pretty mundane things like non-work discussion with coworkers. Those are about as close to "work" blogging as I get.
To make up for it, how about a Snippet Wednesday? Copacetic?
To our dear sweet Nathan,
I think I can safely speak on behalf of both your mommy and I that we never realized the capacity for love that we've found we have for you. You are, simply put, the most amazing baby in the world and it has been a sheer joy to raise you this last year (and watch you grow in your mommy's belly for several months before that).
Let's see if I can cobble together some stuff for a viable Snippet Wednesday on its proper day and time, shall we?
Hey, it's not always as easy as you might think.
Nathan's energy and level of daring seemingly know no bounds. While it can certainly be entertaining to watch, there have been known to be mishaps as a result of it.
And, as you would expect, most of said mishaps are occurring with just a little more than a week before we're planning to go get his one-year pictures taken. Nothing like having cuts, scratches, and potential black eyes on his photos, right?
Have you ever played catch-up on a show either well into it's run or after it has ended? For the last few years, Katie and I had been doing that with Monk starring Tony Shalhoub.
Katie and I use a lot of avocados when we make our homemade guacamole. During one of our kitchen sessions a few years back, she informed me that avocado trees can be grown from the pits of avocados. Makes sense, right? So we looked up online how to do it.
We tried the instructions we found three times and, each time, we wound up with a rotted-out shell of the old avocado pit. Nothing ever happened.
Didn't I tell you yesterday that I would be back today with a legitimate set of snippets for a Snippet Thursday: The Reckoning? And you didn't believe me?? As Grandpa Simpson would say, "For sha-a-a-ame!"
Hey all, welcome to another Snippet Wednesday. Normally today would be chock full of snippety goodness, as you'd expect. But it just doesn't seem like the right thing to do given the date and the anniversary it represents. So, today, I bring you a single Snippet...
Last night, Katie and I were getting Nathan ready for bed.
The problem we have with him, though, is that no matter how tired he may seem downstairs -- the eye rubbing, the ear pulling, the yawning, the whimpering -- once he gets to his room and sees the stuff up there that he doesn't have downstairs, he gets a second (or "fifth") wind. So we have to let him play for a little bit.
A new comic book about the back story of Tig (Kim Coates) from Sons of Anarchy?
I hate bullies. And, as much as I try to avoid them and keep myself removed from their tactics, it's not always possible to stay completely clear of them. That's because they're everywhere. They can be "friends," family, coworkers, neighbors, service people, salespeople, teachers, some random schmuck you meet on the street, or coaches.
Welcome to another Snippet Wednesday. Away we go!
It's been nearly three months since I injured my knee and ankle at the Urban Warrior Dash.
It's been slightly more than one month since I felt any pain in my knee at all. Even impact pain.
New month. New plan. Time to start running again.
While it is nice to be at home enjoying the three-day Labor Day weekend with my wife and son, I'm sad knowing that this is basically the official end of summer.
And just as Nathan was starting to really take to spending time in our local swimming pool (Sunset Pool), too.
I was planning to live blog the live draft in my fantasy football league but completely forgot until about halfway through the draft. So here goes what's left...
