Busy weekend

By General

Saturday morning started with Hope having to be at her softball game at 7 AM. Warm-up for an hour, then game time. Hannah’s sixth grade graduation was scheduled for 11:30 (and I’m the commencement speaker). At 9 AM we get a call from our landlord that a potential buyer wants to walk through the house at 11. So, Tonya leaves the game early to go home and start cleaning. I arrive at about 10:15 and chip in but still need to shower. Amazingly we made it to the school on time and intact.

Hannah’s graduation. Hope’s softball. Projects for Tonya. A few more trolley rides. Anything else?

house hunting, et al

By General

That’s one consideration. Another is that we hope to buy a house within a year or so. Ideally, we’d like to rent and buy within the same school zone to avoid having the girls switch schools. So … Armed with school boundaries, craigslist postings, and my smartphone, we’re hoping to leave Denver next week with a new forwarding address. If not, I’ll be in the Honda with the cats and Tonya and the girls can have the van.

Bing, part two

By General

Steve Balmer: “We should launch a new search engine because our other two failed miserably.” Bill Gates: “Bingo!” Marketing: “Bingo is too long. Let’s drop the “o” and call it Bing.”
