Zoe knows her shapes! While eating at Eat N Park, Aileen starts drawing a circle on Zoe’s activity paper (the mat thingie that fastfood places give to kids), and Zoe blurts out excitedly “circle”. Aileen then makes a heart shape, and Zoe says “heart”. Then it was a triangle, then a square, [...]

Just found a great site for online Lego-Lovers. Obviously, I can’t seem to get motivated to do any serious work today so I’m going around the net searching for inspiration. Here’s LegoDu -

Other stuff that went on this weekend:

We went to an estate sale on Sunday and bought some junk (literally). I got a nice vintage wood-cabinet Panasonic AM/FM radio (see above for a picture), circa late 1960s-early 1970s, for $3.00 and it still works well. The audio on this thing was what really surprised [...]

Memorial Day Weekend 2002
It’s another start of the workweek for me after the nice, long and very restful weekend. It’s SO depressing to have to come back to work after having a lazy respite like that, but I’ve got bills to pay…. so I just need to suck it up!

May 24th, 2002 · No Comments

Counting down the minutes til the weekend…… in the meantime, I’ve rediscovered the joys of playing Bejeweled (thanks to Aileen). It comes in real handy for boring days like this one.
Also, it’s not true that I won’t admit to Aileen “selling” this house to me. She did convince me! I was kinda [...]

May 24th, 2002 · No Comments

I’m not exactly looking forward to packing and moving all our stuff in! Masochism is not exactly my kind of thing. I do agree that it would be nice to come home to a cozy house instead of a cramped apartment.
I liked this house the first time we toured it. Edu would never [...]

For anybody who’s wondering, below is a picture of the house which will be Casa De Francisco by the end of June. It’s a 4BR/2.5 Bath house with a big kitchen and a good-sized backyard. We can’t wait to move in! It’s going to be a very nice change from living in [...]
