Welcome Home Juniper Mae

Well Tempo has officially arrived–and she has been named Juniper Mae.
Say hello to the world.

Juniper was 6lb 8oz and 19 inches long at 3:29pm on May 23rd.  She is our first child and already too cute for her own good.  The labor started at about 3am Friday night and continued for roughly 12.5 hours.
The process [...]

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day to you and your family.  I’m extremely thankful for everything my mother has done for me in my life–as well as my mother in law.  There are such a huge amount of strong and intelligent women in my life, it’s really a blessing.
We need to get to work today, on a multitude [...]

Blog Slowed-But Just Tempo Rarily

No posts last weekend due to Tempo birthing class.  The class talked about the process of labor, everything that happens and it was actually really good.  It did take 7 hours.  We also took a trip up North for my father in law’s 70th birthday!  That was a lot of fun.  However due to that [...]

Spring Time Projects

It feels like spring at this point, and the projects around the house are building up.  With Tempo coming, we are trying to optimize space in the house and be as prepared as we can be before arrival.  Today I’ll be building a shoe organization shelving unit.
We have a garden, probably about 150 square feet, [...]

Anti-Consumerism versus Parenthood: An Internal Debate

Tempo will be arriving in a little less than three months now.  Real preparation has begun.  We secured day care at a very close in home residence.  Teresa has read up on pregnancy and parenthood throughout the last six months and is far more prepared than us.
Yesterday we went and registered for some supplies.  We [...]

Long Term Goals Continued

A few posts back I brought up the idea of long term goals juxtaposed against short term annual goals.  I’ve thought a little more about this and have bucketed out some of the different things Teresa and I are working toward.
The big goal is to lead a happy, enlightened existence filled with family and friendships. [...]

Hard Wood Flooring Project

When the tax man came in 2015, he was kind.  So we have a small amount of extra cash to use toward a vacation or something else.  After discussion, we decided against a getaway and are going to put it toward some home improvement in the form of hardwood flooring upstairs.
Last night we went to [...]

Tax Man Cometh — Travel Time

Saw the tax man last night.  I’m torn whether or not to continue to go to him or not.  He’s a very nice guy, but also charges me and Teresa $250 per year to go through him.  That’s probably about 2x what it would cost to do myself.  I really dislike taxes and feel like [...]

Long Term Goals

At the start of the year I wrote a lot about short term goals–things to be achieved for this year.  It’s something that has become part of my life, looking at what’s happened in the past year and setting a course for improvement over the next.  It’s really enjoyable, and much like this blog, gives [...]

Time to Get Back to Work!

Well, it’s been a very nice two weeks of revitalization. This has been an odd time off, as at no point did I feel as though I was missing out at anything at work because of email and having time to catch up from home if needed.
A lot of people will frown on working [...]
