Well, it’s mid-September. I’m getting really, really bad at writing this, mostly because of work and the baby. I don’t have a lot of time at work to write journals, and when I’m at home I’m taking care of the baby, cleaning, running errands,or flying my kite. Time is flying like the wind-the baby is almost 8 months, is pretty much crawling, and is really noisy. We’re starting to get the house ready for crawling & walking baby, and redecorating (we’re going to do some Feng Shui stuff, too…)
In the news-we’re going to AKA grand nationals in October-I came in 3rd in the division, which means an invitation to compete. I’ve been trying to practice every week, but I need to practice every day, now. The routine is coming along very well-most times I can nail most of it. More work is needed to nail all of it all the time-I’m not sure if I have the time to do that, though…
Uhhhh, lessee, we’re moving the office 1st of October to Irvine Spectrum. I’m really busy working on the project-it looks really nice. People will be happy. We had a visitor this last week-I was in meetings all the time.
What we’ve done since June-lotsa shopping, TV watching and baby care. We visited my parents a few times, and they visited here, too. Some kite flying-we went to Berkeley end of July-I DQ’ed because the wind died. We had fun and went to Napa, so the weekend wasn’t a total loss. I got rid of most of the stuff I had for sale-no one was buying, so we gave it away. We went to the Long Beach Renaissance fair-I bought a didgeridu for travel. We went to the Orange county fair and I got a didge there, too. I can play it pretty well. We had several people over for Labor Day, everyone had a great time and I did the usual masterful job of grilling. We went to a stupid homeshow and I snuck in-we did see a nice camper van. My car died-needed clutch stuff-it also needs fuel injection stuff anda radiator and oil pan-the joy of an aging machine…We went to a La Leche League breakfast and walk-I helped make pancakes and we saw the midwife we fired. We went camping in mid-August by Ojai-it was nice but Erika hated it. We gave Erika’s best friend’s daughtera bike for her birthday-she’s 4. I got a ultralight kite for my birthday.
We changed the computer set around-Erika has her own email and we switched to MSN for access (it was $40 for 3 months, unlimited access). Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org …Next week is the 1st competition for 2000 in San Diego, wish me luck-I have to compete masters… That’s just about it-my parents are in Turkey and we’ve got their car & we’re going up there to check in on things.
