Zero Snippets

March 28, 2014

Seven Zero Snippets today – sometimes you’ve just gotta know when to throw in the towel and say, “Enough!” I had a minor surgical procedure on Tuesday that went (mostly) okay, but then a horrendous stomach bug made its way through all four human family members – started with Nathan, then moved to me, then […]

Disney Magic … in Mayberry!

March 24, 2014

Since it’s already been established that Sarah Kate is the Most Awesome Kid in the World, the next logical step would be to ask her, “What are you gonna do now that you’re the Most Awesome Kid in the World?” but since she became the Most Awesome Kid while at Walt Disney World, the answer […]

Seven Snippets: Fire Ants, Alligators, and runDisney Comes to Town

March 21, 2014

— 1 — It’s not the cold, it’s the humidity. Sarah Kate and I thought we might freeze in Minnesota – every time we left the hotel we looked like we were headed to the frozen tundra when everyone else was wearing jackets. But by the time Tuesday rolled around, we were over it. We […]

Our Minnesota Adventure, Part 3: The Pendulum Swings

March 20, 2014

On Tuesday morning (and Saturday morning, and Sunday morning, and Monday morning), Sarah Kate had the same breakfast: a giant pile o’ bacon and a chocolate donut. Given that chocolate bacon donuts are a thing these days, I guess it’s not all that odd (she did eat them separately, at least). Her plate was a culinary […]

Our Minnesota Adventure, Part 2: Gillette Gait Lab

March 18, 2014

Of course, our real reason for being in Minnesota wasn’t electricity, it was the Gillette gait lab. We reported early on Monday morning, stopping at the clinics first for height and weight, then heading downstairs to the gait lab. Sarah Kate changed into shorts and they filmed her from several different angles, walking both in […]

Our Minnesota Adventure, Part 1: Country Beach Mouse Goes to the Frozen Tundra City

March 17, 2014

Our Minnesota adventure began ridiculously early on Saturday morning. Getting a flight out of an airport in the gulf coast region in the middle of March proved difficult (and expensive) because most of the rest of the U.S. is on spring break. However, we found that if we were willing to drive four hours north […]

Seven Snippets: A Last-Minute Lent Sacrifice, Hibachi Birthdays, and The Little Guy Hacked My Twitter

March 14, 2014

— 1 — I picked something a little odd to give up for Lent – and it’s been a challenge. I’ll admit to being a bit of a slacker in that I didn’t have any (good) ideas before Lent began. Giving up Dr. Pepper has been one of my mainstays, but I’ve gotten to the […]
