Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy opened today. I went and say the show on my (long) lunch. It was whimsical and funny (in parts) and pretty much what I'd expected from the previews. I only wish they wouldn't have made the Zaphond character so silly. I know he was goofy and spacey in the book series, but the movie seemed to get side tracked whenever he had a big seen. All in all it was a farly good representation of the book...although I'm not so sure people who have not read the book will get some of the jokes. Overall I'd recommend it to my friends, but would tell them not to expect and Oscar

Backhanded Compliment?

I took my kids to daycare this morning and my 5-year-old was kind of being a pain as we walked in the front door. Whining, saying no, etc... One of the teachers was walking out the door and said to me, "It's good to see him like that."
I said the first thing that popped into my shocked head, "huh?"
She said, he's so good all time, always saying yes ma'am, no ma'am, please & thank you it's nice to see he is actually a normal kid like the rest of ours."
I thanked her and went on my way.
I guess that was a compliment?

Don't Panic

Only one day until the MOVIE OF THE YEAR opens. I for one will be taking a long lunch to check out the show!

Ride Em Cowboy

Logan is getting to be a pretty big boy. Funny thing is we measured the kids last week. Logan is 14 months old. Ryan was only 9 months old when he was as tall as Logan is today. Ryan is our skyscraper, Logan is our Bulldozer.


My son had his 5th birthday party last weekend. I just wanted to share this picture with you. He was so excited when he successfully blew out his candles on the first try.

Random thoughts

Ok, so I need to get back into writing things here on my Blog. I think what I 'll do is just write some of my random thoughts throughout the day on Mon-Fri. I have a hard time writing on the weekends with the kids and family, etc..

So the first thing that pops into my mind is we are now a dogless family. About two weeks ago we found a new home four our two dogs. We had them both since they were puppies. Gunther, the golden lab retriever, is 7 years old while Dodger, the husky/shepherd mix, is 5. With both my wife and I working 40+ hours, a 5 year old and am 16 month old we just didn't have the time to pay them the attention they deserve.

Since they were getting bored, they were getting into trouble. Jumping the fence, digging holes and ripping the siding off the house toi the point you could see the bathtub from the outside! My father-in-law did a great job patching up that last problem, but that incident was kind of the ultimate eye-opener.

We found them a great home with a friend of a friend. The dogs are being thoroughly spoiled at last report. Apparently they get eggs for breakfast every The family pays much more attention to them that we could & the dogs seem pretty happy. It was a sad day for our house...especially when the 5-year-old came outside to say good-bye to the dogs and made my wife cry by saying, in his best pouty voice, "but mom, I love them."
