Christina had her first haircut today. She sat very well with no tears. Her curls really show now.

Evan and Cole came over today also. We had fun. Evan and I baked cookies. Christina and I played hide and seek with them. Christina had a lot of fun. She did not want to stop. Christina even was quiet when we were hiding. And, she counted with me.

It was a full house and a lot of fun.

Another Sunday

This Sunday I was only gone for a couple of hours. Christina seemed to enjoy the extra time with Daddy.

The little squirt was up early today and did not take much of a nap. Christina went to bed nice and was in a great mood and playful and giggly went she went to bed.

Angela keeps pushing her leg to the "too much pain" point. Her leg is getting better, but it is a slow process.

Yesterday I blew up the little kiddie pool and Christina and I walked around in the water for a little while.

So be it,

Update on the Fam

Well, it has been very busy and stressful here. I'll start with the update for Angela so the update on Christina makes more sense.

After several tests and trips to the U of M, Angela finally had surgery on her leg. The docs needed to do more work than anticipated once inside. Needless to say, Angela is in pain. She is following orders and staying off her leg and keeping it up. Late Monday afternoon her ankle bulged and and became very painful. We went to the ER and called her surgeon at U of M. It is bleeding inside and swelled around the area. Lots of pain and not much to do except put more pressure on it. Angela is healing and wishing it would go faster. Being in this position is frustrating for Angela.

Christina has developed more of an attitude since about a week before Angela's surgery. She wants mommy, and only mommy. We think she is very aware of Angela's feelings and wants to console mommy.

With Angela not able to play with Christina like she used to, Angela gets more frustrated. Christina gets more cuddly with mommy. If Christina hears or sees Angela she starts whining. Christina has had a lot of time outs and stern reprimands. When Angela is not around Christina is wonderful for most of the time.

My update, well, I'm healthy. I am ready for a vacation. When everything settles down, I will go camping. It bothers me that Christina and I bump heads with her attitude. Down the road I am sure it will be beneficial, but right now it adds to the concerns at hand.

Oh yeah, Angela may need to have the same surgery again on the other veins in the same leg if they fail now that the others are gone. That would be a few months down the road though.

Birthday Party

Christina's birthday party went well. We had a small group over on Saturday the 11th. Cole and his family, Cory and Deb, Dan, and Patti came over. Sammy and his grandma stopped by later.

And, Angela and I had a date night. Christina hung out with Cory and Deb while Angela and I spent some quality time together. No computer, ipod, phone, cleaning, picking up, etc. We stayed home and watched a movie together. We watched the whole movie. Have not been able to do that for three years. I enjoyed that.

Time for me to go to work and I hear Christina starting to wake up.

Coffee and update

It is Sunday and I am at The Coffee Grounds. I stopped by Donny's to visit for a bit.

I am giving Ubuntu a try. Running off a live cd, so far so good. I figure I will try the usual email and browsing. It did not take much to setup the wireless connection. First try. I am pleased with all the hardware being recognized.

Yesterday, Christina and I spent time outside. We did some walking and then hooked up the sprinkler and ran/walked through the water. I stopped before Christina was ready, she was cold.

This morning before the girls woke up I started reading about DNS and Bind. One of the O'Reilly books. Rather than jumping to the meat and potatoes, I opted to start at the beginning and get a solid base of knowledge.

Back to reading. And update Peter's site.
