Bad News

Bad news today, Debbie's mom, Lonnie is on the hospital after needing an infusion of blood. She has internal bleeding and a large growth in her colon. Debbie is pretty upset, but she said her mother is pretty upbeat about it. Britty, Izzy and Debbie went to visit Lonnie at the hospital in Hemet. If things come back bad, she's going to be transferred to Loma Linda for treatment. We have friends that work there so we can manage her care better and well being SDA, it's a great hospital. As soon as we know more, I'll let everyone know. I worry to much about things like this, but it's nice that at times like this that I can pray, and I know he'll hear me. I worry about Debbie and Britty also.

An easy day with Izzy

Today was nice, Izzy and I went for a Playday with some people I know at the Seneca Springs Park in town. Then a PBJ sandwich for lunch, a nap and the afternoon in the pool.

I really didn't accomplish much today, but it was nice just to relax and take it easy. I set-up a nice VPN connection on my OSX server so that I can securely remote the machine from anywhere. Right now I'm drinking a Jones Green Apple soda out front watching the sun set over the rooftops and badlands. A nice day overall and I'm feeling much more relaxed now that the wood laminate flooring is almost done getting installed in the living, dinning and family rooms. The hallways are next and the trim. Then things can be put back in order.

Sunday and Grasshoppers

I accomplished alot and worked hard today. All my yard work was done and I still had time to spend in the pool with Izzy. She's growing so much and it's scary to think she's only two years old. Her 2nd birthday is on July 28th, so if you want to send something like a new MacBook Pro or something like that,it's perfectly fine. Tonight we went out to dinner with Debbie's parents, Marty and Lonnie to Mimi's in Hemet, CA. The food took forever and that's not a good thing when your dealing with a little girl like Izzy. The meal ended up being pretty good even though it took forever to get.

I've been messing around on Facebook and I joined a group called "Grasshoppers." Grasshoppers are motivated, talented people with a shared belief that helping others comes back in good ways to everyone involved. From friendsourcing (finding help with business or personal projects through friends) to building a network of colleagues for future collaboration, Grasshoppers is a group that hopes to answer the question, "How can I help?" It's a neat thought and it's something that needs to happen more often among friends. It was started by Chris Brogan at
