Buddy's Ramblings


May 14, 2016: It's been one week since we moved into our new house!! The whole process was uber-stressful, but we made it and are slowly unpacking enough stuff that we can do normal things without having to dig through boxes all the time... Didn't really help that I had to go down to LA for work 2 days after we moved in, but Char made it through!
Other than that, we've been to a couple baby showers -- one of which was ours!! That's right, we've having another boy! This was also the impetus for moving to a house, more room for the kiddos and we wanted to get moved in before Number Two (not his real name).
Went with the whole family down to the last Planet Granite climbing comp. Super fun to get out and climb again.
In work news, we landed two more rockets on autonomous drone ships! That makes 3 total (one by land, two by sea), with hopefully lots more to come.

Q. Why couldn't the lightning rod go play with his friends?
A. Because he was grounded!

Yeah, I made that up all on my own!!

February 17, 2016: Happy Birthday Jasper!!
Also to catch up on other missed events since my last post: Merry Christmas! Happy New Year! Happy Lunar New Year! Happy Valentine's Day!

What else is new? As a parent I'll just talk about my kid:
  • got a new car set (with 2 cupholders -- this brings my car's total up to 12!)
  • cut Ryan's hair (only missed a few spots)
  • he's running around a lot now
  • he made his first snow angel
  • did great at his first dentist appointment
In other news:
  • landed a rocket
  • went to Oahu -- super fun, even though I was sick for almost all of it (and couldn't dive)
  • went to Ontario -- only hung out with family, but it was great to see them
  • had a fun & relaxing Valentine's Day
Ok, gotta go back to work now!

December 3, 2015: HOLY NO UPDATES!!!! Needless to say, lots has happened:
  • Ryan turned 1 and we had a fantabulous camping themed party (with homemade tents and everything)
  • Char had a fun birthday
  • My mom came to visit
  • Ryan puked all over me and the backseat of the car
I also finished all my New Year's Resolutions! The professional one isn't completely done yet, but the app in making good progress and I just sent off the paperwork for creating the company... whee!
Maybe I'll even sneak in a few more updates before the end of the year (no promises though...)

May 14, 2015:
"Happiness is the first derivative of success"
An interesting comment that came up the other day. I think there's something to that... in order to avoid that trap, be sure to remember all that you already have every day!
Ryan's 8-months old now and continues to be super cute, even when making disgusted faces when he eats food he doesn't like (e.g. green beans).
Had a couple fancy brunches for Easter and Mother's Day... Ryan and I took Char out for her very first Mother's Day dinner! Finally went to the Conservatory of Flowers and really liked it! Climbed in another PG Climbing Comp and did better than I expected for not having climbed much recently, fun as always! Did a 5k walk against Brain Tumours, then got free comics for Free Comic Book Day. Saw Andy Weir talk about his book... Finally applied for TSA PreCheck now that I'm flying regularly, should get it any day now! Throw in random lunches/dinners with friends and that about sums up my last month!
OH! I did, just this week, achieve one of my New Year's Resolutions: do 25 chin-ups I'm also doing well on my other two resolutions, but it's too early to call them "complete".
