So I have ADHD

There, it’s said. I was officially diagnosed last week after two sessions with the psychologist. It’s been something that I’ve been meaning to have done for a little while now, and I’ll be honest, it’s nice to know that whatever is in my head can be corrected or at least worked on. And for this […]

Halloween

It was either this or write a novel…. Another Halloween has come and gone. But this year was a far sight busier than last year. Or so I’ve heard, I was stuck in an airport in Brazil at the time. Liam has been looking forward to Halloween pretty much all summer. For some reason, and […]

Age over Ability

Liam has really become a strong swimmer. Since the start of last summer he has been going into the deep end, with a life vest, but otherwise unassisted. He’s even going off the diving board and able to swim back to the wall on his own. Heck, taking Liam to the pool has been pretty […]

To touch the bottom

It amazes me, each and every day how much Liam changes. Last night we were at the pool, as we are most nights during the summer, and he was eagerly trying to touch the bottom of the deep end. It’s a new game for him since we let him in without a life vest. He […]

Gun Play

This morning Liam picked up a toy wooden block, with a toy screw in it, and shot me. It was decidedly not a gun and couldn’t hurt me, but I just wasn’t going to let this slide. So I picked up a toy c-clamp(also decidedly not a gun) and shot him back. This went on […]

Linux fun

Almost 5 years ago, for a wedding present, I got Tara a nice little 10″ netbook from Dell. Time hasn’t been kind to it, and with Windows running on it, it never really lived up to expectations. She liked it and all, but wasn’t able to do all the things that she wanted it to […]

Best laid plans

This weekend was supposed to have me finish tiling the front hall and all that came with it(closet, bathroom, etc). Tara was going to take Liam to a nice hotel place right on a beach so that I had the weekend to work. Well, that didn’t happen exactly. First there was a demon storm that […]

Ch Ch Ch Changes…

July was a bit of a stressful month, and for Liam it really showed. I mean, the poor kid had his whole world turned around and he just didn’t know how to cope. It started the first week of July. Normally he would have gone to his grandparents on Mondays, three days of day care, […]

Roll your own

Just recently(yesterday actually) a friends site got compromised by malicious jerk wads. Again. And not too long ago another friend got his site pretty much blown off the planet by another group of these asses. The common thread is that they were both running WordPress at the time. And so am I. Now, I don’t […]

Dexter Finale

I haven’t watched the series finale yet, but my brother posted on Facebook: “WTF Dexter?” This leads me to think that they’ve done something…odd…with the ending. And before I watch it, I would like to speculate and share it with you. 1. The last season has just been a dream Made popular with Dallas, this […]
