Well, Jess went for her OB/GYN follow up, and what do ya know…she is knocked up yet again. Seriously, at this point one of us just needs to keep our pants on. Oh well, perhaps this one will be a boy, because really, if I have three girls, I might off myself!

Since the job market is the worst my generation has ever seen, we are having to resort to other methods to pay the bills:

My dad has a domain, (http://www.cmmeinzer.com) but uses it almost totally for emails. I have tried to show him the evils of WordPress and blogging, but to no avail.
That said, and in the spirit of my constant giving him a hard time, I have highjacked his webpage! Since it is on my server, I thought, “What the heck, not like he will ever do anything with it.” So, it is now mine! (Insert evil laugh here). Maybe he will see what you can do with a spiffy domain, but maybe not. Either way, it is better than a dumn “Coming Soon” site that will never change.

Due to my recent injury and subsequent free time, I am VERY bored. I work a lot, just because of nothing else to do at 3a, but still, that gets old, especially since I don’t want to be a programmer/techie, I happen to love the team development aspects of management.
Well, as my team can attest, I have been pretty grouchy, mostly due to the snails pace at which my treatment is moving, but also the boredom. My father, did suggest to try and play a game he and I loved from back in the day of when computers had turbo buttons and DOS was the bomb. He was right (man that hurt to admit), and it was (is) a great game and a lot of fun. So, off I ran to download Red Storm Rising. Since it is an old DOS game, I also had to get a DOS Emulator called DOS Box. You can download both from this post, as I don’t think it is fair for you to have to jump through a bunch of stupid hoops on some of those download sites just to get it, so feel free to download them here instead. If you are also so inclined, it is a great book too.

My baby barely fits newborn clothes. Where in the world has the time gone? Mainly the issue is length. When we bought a couple of new footie sleepers at Target the other day, the woman told us to cut the feet off. Needless to say I’ve already chopped a couple of outfits. We keep meaning to measure her. The tape measure has been sitting on the counter for a few days now.

We had to go to the pediatrician today for Illiana’s 1 week check up. Her weight is a little on the light side, but the doctor was unconcerned. We’ve got another week to fatten her up, and now that we’ve got the milk supply in it shouldn’t be a problem. In fact the doctor seemed surprised to see how happy our little one was. It seems like everyone is always so surprised to hear that we’re not having any problems. Ryan’s taken off of work and has been a huge help. It’s *so* nice just being a family. I think the fact that both of us are around has made her one happy little girl.

I don’t forward chainmail, so I’ll post it.
3-year-old Reese: “Our Father, Who does art in heaven, Harold is His name. Amen.”
A little boy was overheard praying: “Lord, if you can’t make me a better boy, don’t worry about it. I’m having a real good time like I am.”
After the christening of his baby brother in church, Jason sobbed all the way home in the back seat of the car. His father asked him three times what was wrong. Finally, the boy replied, “That preacher said he wanted us brought up in a Christian home, and I wanted to stay with you guys.”
I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord’s Prayer for several evenings at bedtime. She would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer: “Lead us not into temptation,” she prayed, “but deliver us from E-mail.
One particular four-year-old prayed, “And forgive us our trash baskets as we forgive those who put trash in our baskets.”
A Sunday school teacher asked her children as they were on the way to church service, “And why is it necessary to be quiet in church?”
One bright little girl replied, “Because people are sleeping.”
Six-year-old Angie and her four-year-old brother, Joel, were sitting together in church. Joel giggled, sang, and talked out loud. Finally, his big sister had had enough.
“You’re not supposed to talk out loud in church.”
“Why? Who’s going to stop me?” Joel asked.
Angie pointed to the back of the church and said, “See those two men standing by the door?
A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons,Kevin 5, and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson.
“If Jesus were sitting here, He would say,
‘Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.’
Kevin turned to his younger brother and said,
“Ryan, you be Jesus!”
A father was at the beach with his children when the four-year-old son ran up to him, grabbed his hand, and led him to the shore where a seagull lay dead in the sand.
“Daddy, what happened to him?” the son asked.
“He died and went to Heaven,” the Dad replied.
The boy thought a moment and then said,
“Did God throw him back down?”
A wife invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said,
“Would you like to say the blessing?”
“I wouldn’t know what to say,” the girl replied.
“Just say what you hear Mommy say,” the wife answered.
The daughter bowed her head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”
