I took Amy and Tommy to a park that was primarily slides. Tommy mostly watched Amy play and Amy did things like climbing open rung ladders that impressed me to all ends. She had such a good time that she threw a royal tantrum when it was time to go. She arched her back to stay out of the car seat, rolled out of it and sat in the regular seat determined not to get into the car seat. I’ve never seen her act this way over not wanting to leave.add a comment

Movie: The Passion of the Christ February 29, 2004 10:30 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
This is a difficult one to review. I have to say the 2 hours and 6 minutes went by rapidly which implies a good movie. However, I’d have to say that if someone that had never heard of Jesus Christ, had never read the bible, and had never been told any of the backstory, this movie would have lacked plot and given the viewer the impression that they were watching a documentary about how unjust and horrid our lives where 2004 years ago as seen through the eyes of a crazy man being persecuted.
I say “a crazy man” because if someone in ragged clothing ran around today declaring that he was the son of God would we not persecute him? I don’t think a crucifix would be today’s choice; instead we would lock him in a tiny room and give him regular treatments of antipsychotic medicines.
Mel Gibson’s choice of using subtitles and not English was superb! Had it been done in English, I believe the movie would have had no credit whatsoever.
This movie mirrored Braveheart in style. The violence and bloodshed was not as sickening as other reviews I read would have one believe but it is amazing that the body continued to move after the beating and beating that they presented it.
The summary on iwon tells the entire movie. Having read that summary, you would be watching only for the effects and violence.

A New Day!
I am finally starting to feel like I’m mending. It still hurts to swallow but I don’t twitch as badly when I do. Tommy has cooked blueberry muffins and I can actually smell them (and they smell great). I’m toying with the idea of eating one.
Goals today: clean for the next 2 hours, pinewood derby, program, clean between all changes of activitiesadd a comment

Took Sarah to a party at a karoke bar 30 minutes away from here. Didn’t make sense to drive home then go back for her so I pretended to be invisible and enjoyed a Coke float.
Returned home and collapsed for the afternoon. Didn’t mean to but then if I didn’t, the wife would be disappointed.
Save “The Passion” tonight. I’m going to have to think this over before giving a review. I’m not certain that I can say more than one or two sentences about it.add a comment

A New Day!
5:20- Noah up and playing gameboy
6-8: went upstairs several times to ask boys to quit yelling.
Throat is on fire. Hurts to swallow. Fever gone (I think).
Baby just woke.
Spent the day sick with a 102.1 fever. My whole body ached. Stayed off the computer. It’s difficult being sick in this house; I feel guilty for not continuing on as normal.

Lounged on the couch and stared at the television: Pyramid, History Channel, Aliens, and Bourne Identitiy (obviously not to completion). My symptoms are worse; my attitude improved.
The weather is improving dramatically also.add a comment
Bad Crash February 27, 2004 12:47 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
My wife awoke early so I came downstairs 9ish. My body was aching (physically shaking) and my mind racing so I gave into a “nap.”
* 9am sleep
* 9:20am phone rings, wife is looking for me; I’m up but return to bed
* 10 am awoke paniced
* 11 am awoke terrified
Here’s the internal details. Sleep was incredibly deep with unbelievably vivid dreams (and no, I took none of Cathy’s Tylenol). Most of the dreams centered on tasks that need to be done and how to accomplish them; some of the dreams revolved around getting my lazy tail out of bed; and some of the dreams were so dark that they won’t be mentioned here beyond this sentence-you know, dark in the way that make psychologists put little flags in their notes.
Now I’m up but so cold that I’m wearing leather duster to work. Typing has helped center me and bring some necessary calm.add a comment

Amy sits on her Radio Flyer car and leans to the right and says “whoa! Whoa! WhoA!” then sits upright and rolls around.
The wife stirs. I feel tired but I must work.add a comment

I just sat Amy (the baby) on the table in front of me with her back to the computer and her face to me. I gave her a kiss. Then asked her “what are your plans for the day?” to which she replied with seriousness “rgmph mmm ew Ah rgmple gratz” and I looked at her and studied her then said “you are a great baby! I love you!” and without saying a word she leaned forward, wrapped her arms around my neck and rested her cheek on my shoulder. After a great hug, she lowered herself to the ground and went to laugh at the snow.

Nevermind. The baby has declared she wants out.
The wife will be up in an hour and a half. We will spend some time together. I will go downstairs and try to be focused on my work. I want to complete all my work today by 3pm so that when Noah returns home we can work on the pinewood derby car together. There is so much to do!add a comment

Well, I’ve got my act together today! Apparently after cooking eggs, toast and sausage (Thank you George Foreman!) I apparently left the eye on the stove turned on while taking the kids to school. Then I stopped and put gas in the car (13.784 gallons at $1.559per totaling $21.49) and bought a gallon of milk and 1 lottery scratch off ticket (I’ve now bought 4 – $4 and won $2 so I’m in the hole $2 — I wonder how deep in the hole some of these addict are?). The catch? Apparently the whole time my pants zipper was down; fortunately I had my shirt untucked so I think I was well covered.
The baby has stirred. I must move down to my computer and try to accomplish something. I still have that 1 hour’s worth of work that must be done and I’d like to put another 3 hours into the project just to impress. The client called yesterday and I’m afraid to listen to the voicemail.add a comment

Sarah (10 yr old) did a beautiful job on her hair but we are late as all get out and she is moving in slow motion. Fortunely our carpooler called in sick today.add a comment
