  • 08:52 feels a little guilty for treating the workmen installing his deck railing like a TV show, but the kids love watching them. #
  • 09:09 watches something called Delgo that Kim ordered from Netflix. Kinda looks like somebody remade The Dark Crystal with Sleestaks. #
  • 09:56 is 45 minutes into Delgo, and it appears to be more like Romeo and Juliet meets Star Wars. Still with Sleestaks, though. #
  • 11:23 and the littlies are soaking up some sun on the new deck. #

  • 16:31 gets to figure out how to roll up the window of the car with no battery. Can he just hook jumper cables from the van to the terminals? #
  • 16:48 put the bad battery in and the car had enough juice to start. May not by tomorrow am, but it got the windows up. #
  • 18:59 made a sad dinner of canned pinto beans and creamed corn, and then went through all the plastic containers and matched lids with bottoms. #

  • 16:19 enjoys Max and Ruby, and his kids adore it, but he's not happy with how it reinforces gender stereotypes. #
  • 16:53 hasn't accomplished much today. Kim is still in pain, and seems to be coming down with LB's cold from last week on top of it. This sucks. #
  • 17:36 takes a chance on voicing an unpopular sentiment. "Seasonal allergies are inconvenient and disruptive." That's right! He said it! #

  • 18:46 has been Nasacorted, Benadryled, Neti-ed, and Ibuprofened, and still feels like the north end of a southbound ox. #
  • 20:07 is fine as long as he lays on the couch with his eyes closed and doesn't move. Anything else turns on the faucets in his nose and eyes. #
