That's not a spider over your head, it's a... kitten!

My #awesomewife was sitting in her chair while I was feeing Kian his nighttime snack, when she yelped and looked up. I looked over to her to see what the matter was, then followed her stare expecting to see a huge spider, only to find.. one of the kittens crawling along the curtain rail. I should mention that this is eight feet off the ground. And yes, I had to play firefighter and get the kitten down out of the tree, as he wasn't able to get down on his own. Hopefully climbing up there won't become a new plaything, because he won't be 5lbs all his life ;)

Three positive things, day fifty

So that was another Wednesday.

The first positive thing was getting to our local monthly Drupal group again. We had a nice turnout today - seven attendees (might have been eight, only I forgot to tell someone).

The second positive thing was Kian picking up two Lego Duplo cows and saying "two cow"! Not "I have cows", specifically "two cows" :-) I thought that was pretty cool.

The third positive thing was... this is the fiftieth post in this series! Woohoo! Lets roll on to 100!

Three positive things, day forty nine

Tuesday is my ... Tuesday?

The first positive thing was starting to sit on an exercise ball instead of a chair to help with my posture. It went pretty well, except for when Kian went rolling off with it - I said something like "Kian, please put the ball back at my desk" to which he responded - "no, baby ball." :-D Well, I laughed anyway.

Three positive things, day forty six

That was a fairly average Saturday.

The first positive thing was receiving an awesome picture from my #awesomewife of the three kids playing at a park, which has become my new desktop picture.

The second positive thing was fixing a bunch more things in a Drupal plugin for interacting with Twitter; I'll be releasing the full update in a day or two.

Three positive things, day thirty six

Finally getting back to finishing writing on the day the fun happened. Doh!

The first positive thing today was my annual review at work. It went rather well, other than the fire alarm that caused an impromptu ten minute recess. ;-) More news soon. Or something.

The second positive thing was Kian finally starting to use a name for our 8yo rather than using the same word he uses for our 11yo. While he isn't quite able to say the word "Liam", saying "Yum" at least helps us understand who he's referring to. And it's funny hearing him say it :)

Three positive things, day thirty five

A busy Tuesday, work-wise, but there was still time for some good parts.

The first positive thing was sitting with Kian as he watched a bit of "My Neighbor Totoro", and watching him clap and cheer when the tree grows :-) It's my favorite movie and it was just wonderful to see him enjoy it so much.

Three positive things, day thirty three

(posting a few days late)

That was a fun Sunday. A funday Sunday. A Sunday funday.

The first positive thing was my awesomewife having some painkillers when I decided to throw out my back & neck while making sandwiches for a picnic. It seems my body was repulsed at the thought of eating a sandwich at a park and decided to make its opinion known by causing me pain and making me unable to move much. Thankfully a combination of heavy duty muscle cream, pain killers and a muscle relaxant had resolved the problem by the next day.
