Happy 7th Birthday, Peanut!

on March 31st, 2008 by mark

Indeed. All the cliche’s I can muster. It’s hard to believe it’s been 7 years. Where did the time go? How did we get this old? How can I be the father of a first grader? All valid and fine questions. But none of them matter. Today was her 7th birthday, yesterday was her party […]

Alaska Ranger

on March 30th, 2008 by mark

I’m not a great traveler. I’m a nervous flyer, a light sleeper, I’ve a weak constitution when it comes to diet changes and the like. I know this about myself, but I’m still drawn to it. I like the idea of travel and I think about it a lot. It’s an albatross to me. I’ve […]

Fragments, fairie tales and Fitness

on March 28th, 2008 by mark

I put one piece to bed tonight before we even put Peanut to bed. I was hoping to put down two, but the interview I wanted isn’t going to take place until tomorrow. It’s pretty fascinating, actually, to be living this life–it’s what I wanted. I’m not saying these things to show off, I’m simply […]

Dogs, deadlines and domains

on March 27th, 2008 by mark

That’s better. Home now a day, slept a bit and tonight, all is back on track. Peanut’s exhausted, so is Sue–so is Sofie. All are in bed asleep as I write this. Scoop too is tired and asleep. I sense hostility and cannot fully blame him. “You went away. Fine, I can accept that. But […]

Home again, home again-Jiggedy Jig.

on March 26th, 2008 by mark

It’s late and we’re home after a brief but fun trip over to Arizona and the Grand Canyon. I do have family there, but we didn’t get to see much of them unfortunately. Saw dad and Joanne for dinner in Prescott Valley, but that was sort of on the way to Flagstaff where we stayed. […]

Fitzgerald Was Right.

on March 22nd, 2008 by mark

I’m trying hard to ameliorate the cost of what has become the American, and thereby the world, credit crisis. In essence, I’m part of the crisis. I sold a house in 2006, five years after I bought it, and made 300,000 bucks in that five years. Rather than do something, you know, intelligent, and sit […]

Good Friday, 08

on March 21st, 2008 by mark

It was my turn tonight to have Peanut duty. This is the job whereby ome of us goes and lies down next to her while she goes to sleep. Usually, that’s a brief process anywhere between 10 minutes and half an hour. There are times, though, when she won’t sleep as she should. Tonight is […]

Spring Break 08

on March 20th, 2008 by mark

The long awaited spring break is here. I’m mush, people. Simply put, I am pure unadulterated mush. Gotta write an article for the morning, gotta write an article for tomorrow evening, gotta get that all done by noon tomorrow–and realistically, I cannot do it tonight. I’ve tried. Heck, look at that last sentence. Does that […]

Down and now back up

on March 19th, 2008 by mark

That was close, it was. For two days, there was no access to my website. At first, I was too busy to notice the problem. Last night, though, I noticed that when I tried to access the site, it wouldn’t show up. I’d get a white page and nothing else. I went to Blue Host […]
