Playroom

Ok, so we decided to have the girls share a room and use the 3rd bedroom as a playroom. Well the playroom is one of few rooms actually setup. Some shelves and pictures need to be hung but otherwise it is done. 🙂

Oh you also can’t see but there is also the play kitchen and highchair my dad made for me in the room too.

Moving day

So today I start to journey of moving all our junk into a new slightly larger place. And what have I learned from all these years of moving a whole bunch of times? 1. I don’t like moving. 2. We have too much stuff. And that doesn’t even count the baby stuff.

Other then that, life has been moving along. Earth orbits sun, Apple introduces a new product, and I go to work. So speaking of work, it has been an interesting learning experience. The team I work with is all from Japan and sometimes the communication can be a challenge. Actually I find the style of job to be more interesting. So this is my first corporate type job where I am not fixing or selling things as my primary job. So I am learning a lot about how teams work together, how meetings work, (and coincidentally can be way too long) and how to restrain myself from trying to do everything.

I have been thinking a lot of those old projects I either stopped doing or never started. Things like my comic strip, blogging, etc etc. Spending time at work seeing how companies try to influence customers online makes me wonder about things like privacy, effort, sharing etc. There are so many factors to consider it makes my head hurt.

Katie and I are thinking of merging our blogs. I guess that means we really are married happily ever after. No, it wasn’t the 7 years of marriage, the almost two kids, (due first week of april, btw) or merging the DVDs and CDs collection. It all comes down to us sharing a online presence.

Sigh, sometimes I really do think I am actually funny. Now back to figuring out baby names. Any suggestions?

How much junk could a chic chick chuck if a chic chick could chuck junk?

I saw this on an article on CNN.com and thought it was amusing. Katie and I have had our share of debates about the amount of crap we have accumulated over the years and what to keep and get rid of.

I myself find that I cycle between wanting everything I can get my little grubby hands on to wanting to get rid of everything. This usually affects my computer use as well as I will alternate between the biggest baddest tower machine to an ultra portable with just the minimum. With my wife it’s trying to get her to get rid of clothes she wore in jr. high school.

And now that we are trying to move again it’s all about furniture and other items. Does the cat scratched chair stay or go? Do we really need ( not want ) to get more Ikea stuff? Do we go the frugal route or go all out?

Well whatever the debate might be I thought these words of wisdom seemed appropriate.

9. How much junk could a chic chick chuck if a chic chick could chuck junk?
I believe this question was originally posed by Lao Tzu, who also wrote, “To become learned, each day add something. To become enlightened, each day drop something.” Face it: You’d be better off without some of your relationships, many of your possessions, and most of your thoughts. Chuck your chic-chick junk, chic chick. Enlightenment awaits.
