I arrived at church at 7:00 AM and made sure that the presentation was going to go off without a problem. Of course some last minute additions had to be made and that drives me crazy. I survived both services and Sabbath school. I finally got out at 1:00 PM but our Pastor Chris asked if I would come back at 4:00 PM so that I could run a DVD for a small group that was meeting. Overall my day was shot and not much fun. This weekend isn't going to be relaxing or enjoyable. Sometimes I like to go to work to relax. Debbie was working all weekend and I was watching Izzy. I wasn't really happy.

Preparing for Sabbath

Tonight I had to go to church to prepare the MediaShout presentation for Sabbath service. It's always a miserable experience for me. Just some monkey work with the computer and confusing plans that are always so last minute. Maybe it's just that I like things very organized and this is always far from planned in advance, but we seem to pull it of every weekend. I was at the church from 6:00 PM till 10:00 PM. No fun for me on Friday night.

Super Walmart and Parent-Teacher Conferences

Tonight we went to Britty's Parent-Teacher conferences. I wasn't worried, she always does well and I'm proud of her. She's really taken ownership of her education and that's important. Nothing bad to report just great grades and comments from her teachers. Then some shopping at Super Walmart, a place that I generally despise but it does have great prices. It's just so huge and impersonal. I like our local Stater Brothers much better, but we had to get a new Baby Monitor. The other one was dead at home. We picked up some groceries and an outfit for Izzy.

Ladies Night at Kiwanis

Tonight's meeting was ladies night. Once a month we invite all our wives to attend the meeting. I was Stag, Debbie had to watch Izzy. It wasn't a bad dinner and we had some new members inducted.

Tuesday, April 10, 2007 After a long wait it's coming to beta soon. Hopefully within the next week or so. It seems like it's taken forever since it was in TechCrunch. - Mobile Note Taking and Hands-Free Messaging - Mobile Note Taking and Hands-Free Messaging A fantastic and free way to keep up with things. Just call a number and Jott yourself a note. It'll be delivered in text to your phone, via SMS or to your email account. Speech to text isn't perfect, but it gets the job done.

Maybe today is going to be better.

It's Easter Sunday and maybe that will be a bigger day for Easter. Britty and Debbie aren't SDA and Debbie's parents and sister are coming over for a BBQ. I am going to BBQ a Santa Maria Tri-Tip, heat up Flour and Corn Tortillas, Refried Beans, TexMex Rice, Salad and Sweet Corn Cake. Hopefully a nice Lunch BBQ for everyone and fairly easy to prepare. It's amazing Dianna and Marty don't really seem to be very interested in Izzy much. They just sit and read the paper. I thought that they would be at least some what interested in her. Oh well I sure am, she's my baby. It has been a disaster of a day. I don't think I'll be doing that again for them anytime soon. It bothers me that they don't seem too interested in Izzy.

Kim's Visit

My sister, Kim and her family are down visiting her husband, Dave's family and us. They are going to be down for just a few days. Today they came over and watched Britty pitch a softball game. Then we went out for dinner. Sometimes I really miss my family, but it's been so long that they've all moved away, that it's just normal to me. I don't like Southern California any more either. I don't blame them for moving. It was nice to see them, even just for a night.
