One Man's Eyes

I'm an early 30's engineer with delusions of adequacy. From here, I'll share my perspective, usually through words, sometimes through pictures, of the view of the world from one man's eyes.

While Momma's Away

A new quarter is upon us, which means Momma is in Chicago for the week. So, I'm alone with the kids until Friday. Thankfully, we're already so busy every night, that I don't have time to worry about what to do :) Even when Momma is in town, we have a full week. The princess has soccer on Monday and Wednesday (though I elected to skip yesterday as the weather was looking nasty). Tonight was Karate and Thursday is Ballet.
And, this Friday, the YMCA is having a fall festival and, if it's like last year, it will be fun and crowded. That's a pretty typical week for us now that the Fall is in full swing. Who needs evenings? They're over rated.

A Request for Prayer

Greg and Jennifer Willits are two people whom I've never met. But, every week for the last year and a half, I've listened to their voices and taken strength and inspiration from their words. They produce the Rosary Army Catholic podcast, which is largely their family story of being living witnesses to the Catholic faith. Thanks to them and several other Catholic podcasts, my own spirituality has grown stronger.
Several weeks ago on one of their shows, they shared that they were expecting a new baby, who would be their fifth. But, on their latest show last week, they shared that they've now learned that the pregnancy is almost certainly a miscarriage. They went through this same loss two years ago with their last pregnancy and it broke my heart to hear they have suffered so again.
So, I ask that you remember them as they struggle through this painful time. Thank you.

Tornado Strike

Just a quick one. This is my son, the Tornado. He really enjoyed the birthday cake from Momma's birthday party.
So, Last weekend, the wife was out exercising, the princess was playing with the neighbors, which left me to entertain the boy.
we're playing with his new set of LEGOs. He used the blocks to build as tall a tower as he can. But, it gets too tall and buckles on him as he's trying to snap another block on top.
He ends up with half in his hand and half attached to the base. He looks at it and in a cute little boy voice says "Awwwwww, crap!"
And I know exactly who he learned that from. 'Course, I do have to be proud that he used the phrase correctly.
