10 on Tuesday

Okay, here goes my big debut writing the '10 on Tuesday'
  1. I love giving my boys their bath together. It is so nice to see Deacon play so nicely with Zac... and Zac looks up to his big brother so much.
  2. It was supposed to rain today... alot. I was actually kind of disappointed when the sun came out. Is that weird?
  3. I'm married to an awesome woman... awesome in many ways. Today's particular way is the way in which she handled this surgery. Just like all of her others, bravely and calmly. I've never had surgery, but I'm pretty sure I'd totally flip out. Wow.
  4. Word of mouth really does work. Both of our cars had prepaid maintenance plans which recently expired. Someone in my office said he really liked his mechanic so that's where I went. He's awesome: fast, thorough and honest. If you're in the Davis area and need car work, check John out at Triple A Automotive.
  5. I've got an awesome job. I like what I do and my work is appreciated, I really like the people I work with. I get a chance to travel for work, but not too much. They're amazingly flexible when it comes to family care time too! I rarely miss working from home for IBM.
  6. Life really does laugh at you when you make plans. As many of you know, Amanda and I are on a huge crusade to rid ourselves completely of debt. We recently put together a budget that accounted for (what we thought was) every last penny. Since then? Several hundred in car repairs and another several hundred in dental bills. We can pay them... but it's back to the drawing board for the detailed budget.
  7. I'm going to try to lose 10% of my body weight over the next 3 months. Just sayin'.
  8. I so can't wait to go visit family this summer!... Yes, I am looking forward to Ohio in July. Call me crazy.
  9. I'm finally working on writing an iPhone app. I'm not telling you what yet since there doesn't seem to be anything similar in the app store yet and the moment I publicize my idea there will probably be 50 of them. Suffice it to say, I'm having fun writing the application.
  10. Ten on Tuesday is hard! I'm glad Amanda's going to be back at it next week!

Damien! Bravo-good job! It really was a fun read. Can't wait to see what your Iphone App will be and you are right-had you revealed it, I would have created the exact same thing tonight except it would include a beaver.

I hope Amanda is feeling better. Sending her my luv.
