Catching up

We got the kids Sea Monkeys for Christmas this year, and they're still kicking... I don't really know how long they'll last, but they seem like they're doing great... They're huge! I'm in charge of feeding them because the kids would forget and I'm sure Tracy doesn't want anything to do with them. I think she's secretly afraid of them. They are kind of creepy...

Driving into work this morning I heard the new Korn song, not sure how new, but it's the latest one that they've been playing on the radio. What happened to them? I was never a huge fan, haven't really heard a whole lot of their stuff. The new stuff is way over produce, and has a real pop element to it. Man it really sucks!

Working our asses off the last few weeks. Two new songs that need vocals - Matt is sick and hasn't been able to work on anything due to a really sore throat. He showed up last night to tape the new stuff, but still couldn't sing. I'm pretty happy with our progress. I really need to change the strings on the J bass this weekend. Starting to sound like crap. Nothing like a new set of strings...

Started off Friday moving the PS2 into the living room, and moved the DVD player from my bedroom into the kids playroom\living room. The kids really dent use the PS2, and I wanted to start playing games more. Worked out pretty good. I rented Burnout III, and bought a used copy of Final Fantasy X.

I was supposed to wash the cars and rake the leaves in the yard on Saturday, but it was really cold and windy. Like 50 mph gusts... Sunday was warmer, but I was busy watching the kids while Tracy went shopping with her friend. She Ended up getting something for every one including me! She surprised me God of War for the PS2. What an awesome game! Everything about it is great... looks great on the big screen, better than the others that I own... cant wait to play it again.

Oh, and I got to watch my favorite team, the Magic get beat by portlend on the road. Now they're talking about a trade again. Francis to the Timberwolves for Wally Szczerbiak and Trent Hassell. That may not be bad. Stats on Wally S are better than Frances. I dont the Timberwolves would go for that... I would be a good move for us though.

Practice last night

Finished another song. That's still only 6, but getting there. Our goal is 8 before we start picking them apart and really practicing them a lot. We'll get there sooner or later. It's slow going... only getting one day a week. We're going to try to pick up a Saturday night once a month. The good news is that the songs are getting better! We should be able to play out sometime this spring\summer.

Making Bread

I plan on trying a Challah Recipe compliments of Josh. I'm going to get the kids to help me to give them something to do. Tracy's going to some art exhibit tonight in Orlando. Perfect way to entertain the kids.

Wow, I made some beef short ribs with tomato sauce the other day. Browned them, then let them cook for 4 hours in the sauce, and served them with pasta. I came out great... very tender.

New Years: I don't really remember anything after doing a shot of 160 proof bourbon with Eric, Rob and Bryan... I was glad to hear that I wasn't the only one that doesn't remember much after that. There are some other interesting stories that I shouldn't share:) Overall a good time.
