Four way stops

February 13th 2009 by Jen in Uncategorized 0

This is a funny blog post about four way stops.  If you’ve ever ridden with Dan or me, you know it’s a blessing that we have a year before Dinah can talk during which to teach ourselves to stop yelling at the other drivers. HT: What’s Best Next

Stain treating

February 12th 2009 by Jen in Randomness 0

I find that I’m spending a monumental amount of my life stain treating these days.  I guess I shouldn’t be surprised what with the increase of poop, spit-up, and Oreos in my life . . .

Dinah moved!

February 12th 2009 by Jen in Family, Randomness 0

To her room.  Tuesday marked her 8-week birthday and we decided it was time to move her from the bassinet in our room to the crib in hers.  This has many benefits: we can access our room more than 8 hours a day (when she’s awake) without fear of waking her, all of “her” stuff [...]

It may have been inevitable, but it could have been avoided…

As I’ve bought more and more books over the years, I knew that this day would come and it finally has. A few days ago (after persuading my wife), I placed an order from Amazon for some commentaries on the book of Acts. This morning I was looking for some books on my shelves and [...]

Life Lesson #889633

February 10th 2009 by Dan in Randomness 3

Of all the crazy and stupid things I’ve done in my life, I never thought I’d come closest to injuring myself and others during the simple task of making Chicken Parmigiana. Still, that may very well be the case. You may or may not already know this, but if you take a 9×13 baking dish [...]

Life Lesson #889632

February 8th 2009 by Jen in Randomness 2

If you eat Oreos dipped in milk, lose part of one in the recliner, and unbeknownst to you, sit on it, you will find it later crusted to the butt of your pants.  And your husband will mock you for it.

Even Jerry Agrees

February 3rd 2009 by Jen in Randomness 0

Here‘s a great little article about getting things done where Jerry Seinfeld gives some really good advice.  In college, I’d go through spurts of working out everyday that would last around 3 months.  Every time my streak ended, it was because I’d lose my momentum by skipping days.  I don’t know anyone under the age [...]

More than it should

February 1st 2009 by Jen in Randomness 3

Have you ever noticed that there are some things that seem to be ridiculously expensive?  There are some things that cost more than they should.  Like razor blades, make up, Starbucks coffee, any kind of baby gear, cereal, cars, etc.  What are some of your examples?  Comments are welcome. Update: I thought of a big [...]

Now that Dinah’s firmly in the 0-3 month clothing size, we no longer have the fun little hand covers.  This is a bigger deal than you might think.  It’s been a sweet time to get to see her little hands which are an amazing testament of God’s creation.  But they’re also dangerous little weapons.  I [...]
