Pet Peeve #2

This one has the tendency to cause great strife.


Here is my mantra...

If you're early, you're on time.
If you're on time, you're late.
And if you're late, you might as well not even show up!

And yes Becky, this even applies to picnics and informal social gatherings!!!

Pet Peeves…

Welcome to DunkinDonuts.comA friend of mine has been blogging about his pet peeves.  So, I thought I would take a turn.  This is one that I feel so strongly about…

I feel so strong about this that I think I will write the company a complaint letter.  Every now and then when I go to Dunkin’ Donuts, I get a vanilla cream donut.  If you don’t know, the vanilla cream donut has the white sugar cream, not the yellow cream.  Anyway, I digress.  Most of the time, DD puts a dollop of cream on the outside of the donut, covering the hole where they inserted the cream.  Love it!

But here is my pet peeve.  When the DD workers grab the donut from the tray to put it into the bag, they grab it from the other side to avoid getting cream on their hands.  But this means that when they put it into the bag, the put the cream dollop down first, smearing it all over the bottom of the bag.  So, when I eat my donut, the dollop sticks to the bottom and I don’t get to enjoy it.  That is unless I stick my finger into the bag and get it off the bottom of the bag (not that I have ever done this of course).

Well, as you can see, this is a pretty serious epidemic that needs to be fixed.

Salve and Sustenance for the Soul

I had a sweet time in the Word this morning. Proverbs 16 landed
square upon my heart. Especially...

"In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his

Themes of Proverbs 16?
God's sovereignty, pride, wisdom, plans, the heart, the mouth, ...

The Word is truly sharper than a two edged sword.

Have Thine own way Lord...

For Drew

I love you and miss you buddy!!!

Tessa loves her Mommy!

Last night we were swimming and I caught a few pics that I think are precious.  Here they are for your enjoyment.


Cubs Game!

Becky and I had the opportunity to go to a Cubs game in St. Petersburg this past Thursday night (right by Tampa).  The Cubs were playing the Tampa Bay Rays.  It was a great game until the 7th.  At that point, the Cubs pitching fell apart and we lost miserably. 

It wasn’t Wrigley by a long shot, but it was still THE CUBS!

Family Beach Day!

Yesterday, we needed some family time, so we jumped in the minivan and headed off to the beach.  We had a blast!!!  Here are some pics.  If you click on a pic, you will be taken to the online album with more (ok, many more) pics.


Where in the World is Rob?

Yes, for our regular may be wondering what happened?  Yes, I know, I have not blogged in weeks.  Let's just say I have been burned out on the computer.  My RMI work has been exceedingly time consuming lately, both at work and at home, therefore, I just haven't had the energy, time, or even desire to sit and blog something.  I have been working on converting our finance software and systems from Quicken to QuickBooks, budgeting, finance reports, bookkeeping, etc etc etc.  Hopefully, I have turned a corner and can get back into the swing of things...  enough about that!

Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to a great husband and father.  I can't tell you how awesome it's been over the past 3 & 1/2 years to watch you grow into the wonderful father you are to Drew and Tessa.  You are loving, caring, attentive and hands-on with the kids.  It is obvious they love you as much as I do.  I am looking forward to adding baby #3 to the mix in just 5 weeks!  I love you Rob!
