Daughter Soccer

Well, today, my daughter had 4 soccer games (scrimmages). She played goalie at one point, and from what I hear, she got creamed. She got kicked in the ribs. From what she said, the girl that did it got carded (as she probably should have).

She is going to be so sore since she hasn't played soccer for about 2 years. She's only been to a couple practices. So, after 4 games (even short games, 23 minute halves) that's still a lot of running.

It was good to see her play. Especially since this is her senior year.

Friday night, my boy and I spent some good time together. My wife spent the evening hanging out with some of her friends. So, after we left the soccer fields (had a meeting), we stopped at the JalapeƱo Grill and had dinner. We then came home and played video games.

When my wife came home she said hi and went upstairs and watched some TV. We went to bed about 1:00 AM!!! I couldn't believe it. He was playing his Nintendo DS and I was playing my new computer game (Vangaurd SoH).

We both had a good time.

He is so my clone!

Springtime in Oklahoma

It was a nice warm day today. The temperature was in the 70's. It was gorgeous!

As I was driving home, I smelled something that is unmistakably springtime in OK. Then, not only did I smell it, but I saw it.

Dead skunk.

Probably wouldn't have know what it was, if I hadn't have smelled it.

Since spring time is skunk mating season, you know why they are crossing the road... and they don't always make it.

Valentine's Day

Today is Valentine's Day... well, in the US. It's already tomorrow in Guam where my cousin lives.

Earlier today, I had a great post planned, but as I sit down to type it, it's gone. No where to be seen in my head.

My beautiful wife got me some new cologne and some cloths for Valentine's Day!

I'll just want to take a moment to wish my wonderful wife a very Happy Valentine's Day. I love you with all of my heart, and I always will.

Federal Refund

Friday, we got our Federal refund deposited into our bank account. Yea!

We aren't doing a lot of "fun" stuff with the refund, but doing stuff we need to get done. Eye Appointments, Dentist, gravel for the driveway, paying off bills. You know, that kind of stuff.

Super Bowl Ads

I'm not much of a Super Bowl watcher. The main reason I watch is for the commercials. Well, thanks to the internet, I no longer have to watch the Super Bowl to enjoy the commercials.

My wife told me they had a commercial on that said you could go to a web page and see the commercials, but she couldn't remember what it was. So, I did what any normal person would do. I went to Google and looked for it.

I'm not sure I found the one she saw advertised, but I did find one.


I believe this is the site that was advertised on the TV. Last night, it was so busy, I couldn't get on.

State Refund

Saturday I filed our 2006 Taxes. I happened to check my bank account this morning, and I had my State Tax refund.

Woo Hoo!

I love E-File and Direct Deposit.

Microsoft Time Zone

While hitting the topics this morning before I get extremely busy, I saw a link to download Microsoft Time Zone. This app is cool.

Where I work, I deal with people in Australia, New Zealand, and TiJuana. My cousin currently lives in Guam. It's really hard to keep up. I'm always asking "What time is it there?"

So, long story short, you set up Microsoft Time Zone with the Timezones you want to track. Then you right click the app in your taskbar, and click on Show My Locations, and all the locations you set up pop up, and you see the local time.

It also appears that you can set the timezone of your machine to these locations as well. But since I do little traveling, I don't think I'll use that feature.

Pretty spiffy. I think this comes with Vista, but since I don't see me installing Vista anytime soon, I grabbed it.
