Random Thoughts 8/16/11

  • Buying and selling houses right now stinks.  It's an emotional roller coaster that's putting my wife through the ringer.  Yuck.  Remember ten years ago when this was relatively easy?
  • I took my day off this week on a Tuesday.  That's unusual for us but it worked alright for today.  It hasn't been very restful but there are seasons like that.
  • We're dog-sitting for friends this week.  It's a little black dachshund named "Vienna" and Anneliese loves her.
  • The church cook-out is tomorrow night at 6:30.  No classes yet; they start next week.  If it rains tomorrow evening, we'll move it inside.
  • I'm trying to get caught up with all the NFL changes since last season but normally you have all spring and summer to keep track of who will play for which team.  Now, due to the lock-out, it's all crammed into August.  Getting on top of this might make the difference in your fantasy football draft.
  • It looks like the Big 12 is still up in the air, with Texas A&M looking like they'll leave whether it's good for them or not.  Missouri on the other hand is saying all the right things but they haven't yet earned back the conference's trust after the whole Big Ten thing.
  • I'm skeptical that the next iPhone will supposedly be a giant leap forward.  The next big step in cell phone technology isn't widely available yet and I wonder if some of the rumors, even if they're accurate, aren't for this next about-to-be-released phone but rather for the one after it, due out sometime in 2012.
  • I'm determined to move on to the next phase in my writing.  For months, I've been taking pages of notes and "doing research" for a couple of book projects but I haven't really written a word yet.  I need to make myself sit down and actually start writing.
