Six Years Ago

By • Aug 15th, 2009 • Category: Daily Life

Today is an important day in my family, so I figured I’d wipe the dust off That Smith long enough to share what makes today so special. On this day six years ago, I met this young lady for the first time. We met at a Royals-Twins game at Kauffman Stadium, eventually started dating, and […]

Laura and I moved into our house exactly one year ago today. We celebrated tonight by taking pictures and fixing a nice dinner. Here are pictures of our house right now and how a few rooms looked before we started working on them.

Wealthy, but not rich

By • Aug 1st, 2008 • Category: Daily Life

I’m shocked I haven’t posted in almost 3 weeks, yet I have been on several times a day replying to comments and updating the post on my Firefox addon. If you haven’t seen it yet, a little over a month ago I decided it was too much trouble to pick up my phone and dial, […]

Our basement is better

By • Jun 22nd, 2008 • Category: Home

The plumbers were finally able to come Friday so we are once again able to do laundry and use our kitchen sink. We were able to use the sink and dishwasher up until Thursday night when running the sink started to make the washer drain flood as well. The total damage was $85 and a […]

Basement Plumbing Problems

By • Jun 18th, 2008 • Category: Home

If you haven’t already heard me or Laura say it on twitter, we are currently working on fixing our laundry room because we are having issues with the plumbing. We went to Overland Park for Father’s Day but first found out our washing machine leaked everywhere the night before. Last night we discovered the leak […]

Birt the puppy

By • Jun 10th, 2008 • Category: Daily Life

I came home today to find we now have a new puppy. Laura decided to adopt her friend’s dog to save her friend from being evicted or some nonsense like that. (Stupid friend.) To make a long story short, Birt (female) is now the newest member of our family. She is a chihuahua-fox terrier mix. […]

Evil Work Project

By • Jun 5th, 2008 • Category: Work

Recently at work I’ve been working on a top secret “evil project” that I’m about to unveil upon everyone over the next few days. I call it evil because it collects data from just about everywhere it is available within the organization and spits it out to all the sales, marketing, engineering, and management people […]

Quick update

By • Jun 4th, 2008 • Category: Daily Life

Chad never updates so I thought I would. We’re alive and well still. Kinda of. We’re sick right now so it’s not cool. We’re hoping Kaden doesn’t get it. That would definitely not be fun. Yesterday was Chad’s 25th birthday so Grandma Pat watched Kaden while we went out to Chili’s. It was yummy and […]

More pictures of my adorable kid

By • May 12th, 2008 • Category: Daily Life

Either I am tired or have no creativity left after working from Chicago all last week. I can’t think of anything to say except that we made more coffee beer tonight (read Coffee Beer [Brew 5] on BEER dad) and have the most adorable baby you would ever see. I had an ok time in […]
