We went to see Bowling for Soup at the county fair on Friday. The lead singer reminds me more and more of my youngest brother Tim. And apparently Bowling for Soup is also from Denton. They're much more of a punk band in person, and play really fast. I have further confirmed that I like the kind of silly that their music is. I suppose I'll need to decide whether I prefer BfS's "Hooray for Beer" or Tim's "Malt Liquid" :-)

Shanna continues to sprout up like a weed, and is capable of following basic verbal instructions, when she feels like it. Yay!

We went to a nice barbeque yesterday. I knew nobody. Shanna had lots of fun, as did Krissy and I. Also yay! We've also determined that some people have vastly, unbridgeably different taste in tequila than Krissy and I. Fair enough.

We've eaten way more crap lately than usual between the barbeque, the county fair, and generally just slipping a bit. On the plus side, funnel cakes are really good, and basically too big for only two of us to eat.

We now have a couple of big scheduling whiteboards in our bedroom, all marked up and everything. If we suddenly become far more organized after, like, yesterday, then you'll all know why. If we don't, that's okay too.

How old is she?

p.s. I think "barbequeues" are what adults do to have fun when they have kids. You can't really take the kids to a nightclub, so all of you go over to a friends house, the kids run around the yard, there's a cooler of beer...

13 months.

Amusingly this is the first time I have ever participated in the 'cooler of beer' part of a barbeque. It was festive. It was even more handy that random other adults at the party were thrilled to chase the kidlet around the yard.

How do the scheduling whiteboards work?

So far, so good. We're also doing meal planning on them, which is nice. We would usually lose that information pretty much right after shopping.

We'll see if we have the patience to keep using them well, of course. I used to do really well with a Palm for the same thing, so I have hope that it'll last, but it's hard to say in advance.
