February Cold Snap

Winter of 2018 has been a pretty cold one.  It’s had ups and downs, but the last few weeks have been pretty frigid.  I just picked up a small cold and the flu has been making it’s rounds all over.  January is generally the toughest part of the year in Minny due to the cold […]

Merry Christmas! …And 2018 New Years Resolutions

Today is Christmas Day.  Today is a special Christmas for our family because it’s the first where Juniper really knows what’s happening.  Last night Santa stopped by and dropped off some gifts for her:  a new book, some small carved wooden animals, and a cupcake.  She also got a small trampoline from us, which she […]

A Quick Low Down

Since it’s been near six months from our last posts, it’s probably a good time to recap what’s been happening lately. Probably best to start with work.  Mortenson continues to be an excellent place to spend my working hours, and the solar industry is an absolute joy.  I oversee the marketing for our operating group, […]

San Diego Vacation

Tuesday this week we left on a jet plane to San Diego for a very quick getaway.  The trip was exploratory in more ways than one, with Juniper we just don’t know how well she’ll travel at this point.  Her first trips to Florida, Sweden and Iceland were a different time in her cognition state […]

Gearing Up For Winter

It’s that time of year, the first snow has fallen.  This first part of winter is actually really enjoyable on multiple fronts.  The holidays are right around the corner, which usually means gathering with family members and taking a little time off from work.  I’m certainly planning on both as my workload has been on […]

Juniper Mae – 1.5 Years and Running

It is a little less than 18 months since Juniper Mae Ed was delivered into this world to a tear stricken father and exhausted mother.  Her little misshapen head proved malleable enough to restore itself to it’s healthy rounded expectation shortly thereafter.  The bright red spot which developed a few weeks later above her right […]

Life Today

Life today is mostly focused on parenting and work. And it’s a lot of fun, despite that sounding relatively mundane. The truth is, as you get older, things slow down and get a little more predictable. They need to. So here’s a brief update:  new day care for Juni all is well there.  Work is […]

Aging and Mortality Warning Signs

About three weeks back Teresa and I were doing some landscaping work in the back yard, I was digging up some of the dirt by the new shed.  The ground level was too high to open the door on the shed during winter, which inhibited being able to drive through the shed with the snowblower. […]

Happy Mother’s Day

I called Mom this morning and think she appreciated it.  My parents were here this last week to watch Juni as our daycare provider had vacation planned.  Having some help around for those situations really does mean a lot–thanks Mom and Dad! Today is a special Mother’s Day as it’s Teresa’s first with Juni in […]

The long times

It’s been quite some time since writing something of substance, or at least a grouping of written ideas of substance.  The times, they are a changin’. Juniper is still yet to fully bloom, but she is bright and amazing and temporal and all encompassing.  She really is an amazing little thing.  Skinny like a spindle. […]
