Mouths of Babes #1

I’ve decided to start tracking the funny things my children say in daily life. I have to admit they are very sincere when they say them, but they are so funny in their innocence that it just makes Beck and I laugh. Case in point…

We were watching Extreme Home Makeover (yes I know it’s over the top, but as a right brain person I love the design ideas) as a family. This one was in Kentucky and it was about a boy named Patrick Henry Something (I forget the last name). Anyway Patrick Henry was born without eyes and the ability to straighten out his limbs. This has left him blind and in a wheelchair. Of course the father admits he questioned God about why he did this to their child or why He allowed it to happen.

Long story short, Patrick Henry is a master musician! He plays the piano beautifully and writes his own compositions. He also plays the trumpet in his school’s marching band! Yes he marches in formations (his Dad pulls him around in his wheelchair so he can be part of the band on the field). It was truly inspiring. Patrick Henry has a very sweet spirit and such a joy for life it really touches your heart.

So when the show first started and they were covering Patrick Henry’s birth and his disabilities and they got to the part about his being born without eyes… Sierra looks over at Beck and I and says…

“Why didn’t he have eyes? Did God run out of eyes?”  

Needless to say the precious factor was at 10. 

Bipolar or Just Too Much Sugar & Caffeine?

I’ve wondered lately if I suffer from mild bipolar disorder or if I just have too much sugar and caffeine in my diet. I mean the effects of both are about the same (depending on the dosage of caffeine/sugar). One just requires medication. During the weekends, when I am away from the vending machine in our breakroom that bekons me to get the 20 ounce bottle of green joy that is Mountain Dew, I become quite down and depressed. I’m sure it’s due to the lack of caffeine in my system over the two days off, but sometimes I just wonder if it could just be that I’m a fast-cycle bipolar and I just happen to go through my ‘down slope’ on the weekends. Maybe I just get depressed because I know I should be out doing the lawn. Maybe I get depressed because I know Monday is coming. Meh… it’s gotta be the caffeine. Also… why doesn’t caffeine follow the ‘i after e’ rule?

Wow! I suck so bad at blogging!

Well you’d think being an internet designer and a geek I’d be blogging every day. Well I guess I blow that stereotype out the door. Honestly it’s probably just laziness. Maybe apathy. Maybe both. Maybe it’s just that I type all day and I’m bored of typing rants or pictures of puppies. Maybe it’s just that my life is uber-boring and the most exciting thing that’s happened is the new gray hairs in my beard. Maybe it’s just that no one reads this blog… not even my wife links to it anymore.*sigh*Maybe I should blog more. Maybe I can get it all out of my system. Maybe I can find something to be passionate about again.Maybe.
