Moving, dogs, and kids.

I have four kids. Not just any kids. My kids are special. Yeah, I know. Everyone thinks their kids are special, but you don’t understand. My kids are really something else. My kids will wear you out, exhaust your sanity, eat everything in your house, disassemble your car, send the neighbors to the E.R., somehow manage to be elected class Gestapo leader, and start a new cosmetic company all in the same day. They are going to be president some day. At least my third one is. The first is going to be her lawyer though, the second is going to be her demolition crew, and the fourth is going to be her celebrity endorser.

I also have a dog. This dog runs like a greyhound, sheds like a himalayan cat, eats like a Saint Bernard, chases UPS guys like a junkyard Doberman Pincer, and pulls on his leash like a Siberian Husky in the Iditarod.

So while I was attempting to pack, my kids let the dog out of the house, and down the road he went. His gleeful bounds across hedges and yards put the nearby deer to shame. My son followed after him in his dad’s golf cart zigzagging across the edges of neighboring yards in a vain attempt to rein him back in to the relative safety of our own yard. I finally got in my Jeep and told Son to go home. I went after the dog and finally caught up to him nearing the end of our street about 3/4 of a mile away, where he promptly came lumbering over at my demand as I opened the door to the car. He loves the car. He must’ve thoroughly enjoyed his romp through the neighborhood judging from his satisfied panting and drooling all over the backseat.

The house is still not packed yet. We are all still alive though.

  1. Howdy! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading your blog posts.

    Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that cover the same topics?
    Appreciate it!

    1. Unfortunately, I cannot right now. I honestly have not had the time to keep up with many other blogs lately. Thanks for commenting though!

  2. My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.
    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type
    on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard good things about Is there a way
    I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it? Any
    help would be greatly appreciated!

  3. Greetings, I do think your blog could possibly be having
    web browser compatibility issues. When I take a look at your site in Safari,
    it looks fine however when opening in IE, it’s got some
    overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other than that, wonderful blog!

  4. We stumbled over here from a different page and thought
    I might at the same time check things out. I love what I see so now
    i’m following you. Anticipate looking into your web
    page repeatedly.

  5. May I simply say what a comfort to uncover someone who genuinely knows what they’re talking about on the net.
    You definitely understand how to bring a problem to light and make it important.
    A lot more people need to look at this and
    understand this side of your story. I was surprised you are not more popular since you surely have
    the gift.

  6. I think that what you published made a bunch of sense.
    But, think on this, what if you were to create a killer headline?

    I am not suggesting your content is not good, however suppose you added a
    headline that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Moving, dogs, and kids.
    – Adventures of Cuckoo (and company) is
    kinda boring. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they create news headlines to get people to open the links.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get readers interested about what you’ve got
    to say. Just my opinion, it would bring your posts
    a little livelier.

    1. Thank you for that perspective. Honestly, I do realize that I could do much better, but I’ve been crazy busy and haven’t really taken much time to think these posts through. What you see here is representative of my throwing together a quick post as I have a few minutes here and there throughout my day. I’ll try to see if I can take a little more time to organize my thoughts better.

    is really a great site.

  9. We have been browsing online a lot more than 3 hours
    today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It is pretty worth enough for me. For me, if all web owners and bloggers made good content when you did, the net will be much more useful
    than in the past.

  10. Hey! I realize this can be sort of off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you presently using for this site?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m checking out alternatives for one more platform.
    I would be awesome in the event you could point me in the direction of an effective platform.

  11. Wow! This website looks just like my old one! It’s over a entirely different
    topic but it has virtually exactly the same page layout and design.
    Outstanding selection of colors!
