  • There is a dog in my house. I bewilderingly agreed to let Terra dogsit for someone in the church. For a week. She must have drugged me. 18:00:31, 2014-11-24
  • Ya' know how I've said that I've never had anything but bad experiences with dogs? Yeah, that trend clearly continues unabated. And how. 12:22:45, 2014-11-26

Christmas 2013, Act Three

I’ve spent probably 30 hours on this. And I still don’t like it.
I like the other two vids I made but I just can’t get this one right. I’ve edited and re-edited and re-edited – I even started completely over once – and now I’m just abandoning it and hoping it’s not as bad as it seems to me.
But, considering it’s the second week of January and no matter what I do, I’m still not satisfied with it, I’m just walking away and posting it as is…

Back on routine, good week.

We took a break from most of our routines for a couple weeks and this week we’re back on track so that’s good. Breaks are good but we’re so used to all these little disciplines we have it feels really weird to skip them.

We started a new home fellowship on Tuesday. I don’t know how well it will work out, since it will mean staying up later than we’re used to (they start at 7) but we’re gonna give it our best shot. We miss being in a home fellowship.

Tonight for family night, we all played Gauntlet Dark Legacy (PS2). Wesley, Nina, and I played three hours every Saturday all summer so he and I have level 50ish characters but Terra is starting at level 1 so she needs lots of help but that’s more good lessons for Wesley.

Terra finally got to go on a clothes shopping spree with her Christmas money. I helped her choose some things out and she’s happy with what she got.
I’ve been cooking with my new kitchen stuff that I bought with my Christmas money. I love the new stuff. I’ve never bought new kitchen stuff before so this is exciting.
And I’ve made waffles four times (or is it five?) since I got my waffle maker for Christmas :)
She is totally addicted to her Nook I got her for Christmas. That’s good. It’s a great addition to her corner.

We’ve finally figured out a way to get audio theater into our life again. YAY!!! We’re listening at dinner now. I love our dinner music playlist but we’ve been REALLY missing audio theater and don’t have any other time to listen anymore so this is good.
So far, our plan is to have some variety by listening to Radio Drama Revival one night and The Sonic Society on another. The other two nights we have available will be one show of her choosing and one of mine. She chose The Leviathan Chronicles and I chose The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. We’re nearing the end of season one of the former and starting season two of the latter. Picking up where we previously left off in both cases. We’ll probably only do a season at a time, switch to another show (there’s so many we want to hear!) and return to a show for another season so we have variety and don’t spend months trying to get through an entire show like we did before.

I seem to be starting another bout of my sleep disorders again. It’s been a few months. It always starts with vivid, emotional dreams that stay with me for days. Then come the nightmares, the waking myself up screaming or flailing, etc.. I’m toying with the idea of vlogging about the dreams I have. And then the things that inevitably come after. It will go on for a few months then go away again for awhile.

Christmas season is here!

We decorated :)

And here’s a couple tweets…

We’re doing a lot of shopping via apps so far – Amazon and eBay. For Terra, we’re building her a “teleportation chamber” in the living room. Papasan chair, little table for a book or two, a lamp, maybe a picture on the wall of a faraway exotic place. It will go where the tree is now.

Last night, we had a Christmas slumber party night – those are a rarity these days. We sat in our now Christmasy room and watched Christmas Vacation and Mixed Nuts, ate a lot of junk food, and laughed hysterically.
