I finally sold my house! I've only had one offer in almost a year...but that's all it takes.

Click on above URL and then click "launch" on the video. David Goldman finally got to see his son after 4 1/2 years. Neat story (and cute Dad :)

Saw this on a dog park website: *Who's your best friend?* If you don't believe it, just try this experiment. Put your dog and your wife in the trunk of the car for an hour. When you open the trunk, who is really happy to see you!

Not sure why Eric's goal chart isn't working. When you click on it, my chart comes up. Too bad because he enjoys filling it out. Most of his goals have to do with basketball such as a certain number of layups, free throws, 3-pointers. Yesterday after school he played for almost 2 hours. I was the free throw and 3-point ball shagger. He had to make 10 3-pointers in a row, otherwise he had to start over. He would get to the 10th one and miss, so he got so mad that he made himself do 11 in a row. I finally went in the house. His perfectionism was wearin' me out. Too bad you can't see his chart - he makes notes at the bottom so you can see his free-throw percentage. He makes himself shoot 50 free throws in a row, and one day he made like 47/50 and yesterday around the same. His goal chart also includes doing all homework, drinking weight gainer shakes, lifting weights and doing pull ups on the pull up bar that Brian got him.

All that basketball practice will come in handy when we turn our living room into an indoor basketball court. Eric says no one uses the room (that's true), the ceilings are high enough, the wooden floors are perfect just the way they are, just take the furniture out, install a hoop over the dining room entrance, some pieces of plexiglass over the windows and there you go. You laugh, but he's serious.
