10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

The Blogging Roller has a new look

Dave did a little work this weekend and came up with a new theme for his website. I'd describe it as "metal" and looks pretty cool to me! One suggestion, you might want to make that background wider. I use a 1280 x 1024 resolution and the background repeats itself. The real question is - did you have fun doing it? I always enjoy creating new themes or re-styling a site.

We thought today was the day!

Julie woke me up at 5:30 this morning to say she'd been in labor since 3:00 a.m. She'd taken a shower and was heading out to get some donuts because she was very hungry. Her contractions were 10 minutes apart and he due date 4 days away (November 7th). So we went to King Sooper's, got some donuts and other goodies, and came back home. We both thought today was the day for sure. So Julie went to back to bed to rest up for the big event, and I packed the car. When she woke up 3 hours later, her contractions had died down to about one per hour. It's 5:00 p.m. now and we're heading out to dinner - but the enthusiasm has definitely died down. She talked me into painting the living room today and it doesn't look like we're going to have a birthday today. But you never know, those contractions could kick back in at any moment!
