Weakness leads to weakness July 31, 2004 3:41 pmPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
Boneheaded me left one end of the siphon in Tommy’s fish tank and tied the other end of the tube to the fish tank. I casually went to look for a book I could read while draining the rest of the tank. The siphon tube having an intelligence far greater than my own untied itself and proceeded with the work of draining the tank all over Tommy’s floor. I don’t think anything took any irrepairable damange.
The first weakness: Having intelligence and not using it.
The second weakness: I lost my temper but should not have. As hard as I tried, yelling did not make the water jump back into the tank. Apparently water doesn’t scare easily.add a comment

There is no milk for the kids. No apple juice for Amy. The bank account is low. It’s a horrible feeling not providing well for your family.add a comment
Dog Training Humans July 31, 2004 8:42 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
The dog seems to be making an effort to get to the door. Now the humans need to be more diligent watching the dog. It’s hard. You blink and an accident has happened. You think you are watching and you aren’t.add a comment

A New Day!
I woke this morning at 4:15 but did not drag myself from bed. Just keep trying Just keep trying. At 7 I heard rustling and hoped it was Noah because I wanted to hide in bed. Closer to 7:30 I decided the dog needed a walk (outside she said no) but outside I could hear Amy’s voice. That ws when I remembered the boys were at the grandparents so at 7 it was Amy playing.
Amy helps with the dog. As I brewed coffee I asked Amy to “get Molly a chew toy” and she instantly emptied the cage of chew toys placing them on the dog bed.
Having great quality time with Amy! She is sitting in my lap eatting raisins and calling them “candy.” We read a book together and she has told me all about Molly’s chew toys.
She just showed me “o” on her book in multiple words.
Sarah rises. Amy runs off them comes back saying “a monster! a monster!”
Sarah takes some time to horse around with the puppy then is off to fix breakfast.add a comment

Dropped the boys off with the grandparents then picked Sarah up from camp. Amy was thrilled to see her. On the way to get her and back I started relearning some old haunts. I love backroads! Pleasant dinner and evening with the girls. Was reminded that this really is a small town when one of Sarah’s tent mates showed up at the same restuarant that we chose. Amy is thrilled to have Sarah home and giggled for an hour before going to sleep.add a comment

Fee Checking..I mean Free Checking July 30, 2004 9:25 amPosted by djuggler in : Daily Life
So as I’m finally getting around to reconciling my bank statements I am noticing a regular $9.00 service charge on top of the regular $5.00 service charge. I called the bank and they responded with “um.. this account is so old that we don’t even offer it anymore. hang on. I just talked to my manager and she explained that this type of account had a $600 minimum balance requirement so if you slip below $600 during one month you get charged $9.00. Would you like to switched to our Free Checking?”
I’m being fee’d to death!add a comment
