I’m sistting in my parents back yard, Lebanon, Ohio. Wind is blowing through the leaf-less trees, Caleb is pushing a big boy swing that my parents put up hanging from a branch. He learned the joy of spinning in the swing. At one point he got so dizzy it appeared that he might pass out. Now he’s laying on his belly on the swing. It’s really a beautiful day. My guess is that it’s 70 degrees. The wind chills the air quite a bit. I really miss being in Cincinnati, but I’m happy to be where I’m at.
We have very few plans for visiting friends this trip. Makes us wonder how we’re going to fill our days. If I was sure that the weather would stay this nice, I’d have no doubt, but it’s supposed to get quite cold.
One of the first things I did last night was setup the wireless internet. We get much bettere signal throughout this hundred year old house, than we do in our 20 year old house. It’s probably a result of construction materials and such.

One feature/drawback from the script I set up to rebuild my weblog every 15
minutes is that my weblog stays at the top of the
href="http://crablogs.com">Crablogs list. It’s really quite funny, but
sort of breaks the functionality. I broke my old photo software gallery in
moving all the photos to the new location for the new software- and in doing
so went way over my allocated space limit…. I’m currently on a plan that
has only 500MBs available, the new software creates 2 files for every
picture- a thumbnail and an intermediate size file….. Taking up even more
Did I finally get the

Did I finally get the RTF formatting in my Outlook working properly?

The entries below represent tests of the email to blog entry working. **well I fergot I deleted them** I don’t know that I’ll ever use it, but it’s something that I’ve always wanted to try. It’s really not secure so anyone could email a blog entry to my server, the only thing is that it I have to manually rebuild my index. Perhaps when I set up the cron job to run the email to blog- I can also setup the mt-rebuild in there… maybe i could also figure out how to get that thing at the bottom working too- the check these out…. ooo … ooo. New photo gallery software is installed here. I like it a lot better than slooze. I’m also in need of getting all my old photos put into the new system, but they don’t use the same naming convention for the thumbnails…. the good thing is though, that I don’t have to manually create the thumbnails any more.

Been putting this off for a day or 4. I just really don’t know what to say. I’m so tired of people asking me how Amy’s doing, it’s not that I don’t like people to let me know they’re concerned, it’s just that we really don’t know. She’s feeling better, but not 100%. Just not a whole lot of new news….. except that she was released from the hospital. Church was hard this morning… just about everyone at church knew what was going on as a result of our prayer request network….. and consequently, just about everyone asked me how she was doing…. I’m just being a grump.
It seems that Caleb and I have really had some bonding time. I’ve really enjoyed the time we’ve gotten to spend together. I admit that I probably forget to change diapers until they smell, i admit that I forgot his medicine just about half of the time…. and last night I kept him out until well after 11. He’s had it tough, everytime we’ve dropped him off somewhere he’s cried miserably…and once he’s tired… completely is no good, wanting his daddy. We told him that she was sick and had to stay at the doctors. He seemed alright with that…. and didn’t really seem to mind until yesterday when we picked her up. He’s so caring and loving and concerned. It’s really sweet.
Life has been getting pretty busy, lots of extra church activities, and trying to figure out how to do more, and deal with a sick wife and being a “stay at home dad” for a few days… it’s really putting strain on me. But we’re hanging in there…. we’ll get through it.

Our floor is wonderful. It’s simply amazing the difference it makes. Just thought I’d throw these up before I get yelled at.
Thanks Mom and Dad…. this has got to be one of the best presents ever!
