Kid brains are awesome

Good morning! After the excitement on Monday there were quite a few people that were concerned when I did not write in my diary yesterday morning. Not to worry, the bad guys didn't get me - at least not yet anyway. No, the reason for my hiatus was far less exciting. I was buried in work.

I know, lousy excuse. But, at least it is the truth.

Look, I know you are tired about hearing me whine about how busy I am all the time. I am even tired of listening to myself. The fact of the matter is that there simply aren't enough hours in the day. If I can just make it through to January 21st there just may be some light at the end of the tunnel.

My schedule was destroyed in December when I took on a project that had a tight deadline. It became worse when the deadline was moved up by 2 weeks. All of this was on top of a schedule that was already too jam packed.

For the record I already know. I have had stern lectures from both my wife and my mother. Yes, a deadly combination. But, I got it. I am too nice. I have got to learn to tell people no.

In the mean time, I have to continue to be a yes man until I finish these projects and then I promise. I will turn into a 'no' man.

Yep, probably won't happen.

Well, enough about poor little me. The week churns on and the kiddos have been busy at school and Tae Kwon Do. They have had two practices already this week and they are lined up for more double practices both tonight and on Saturday morning. This is all in preparation for their tournament in Austin scheduled the following weekend. It is a little overkill I admit. But, at this point, I still think it is doing them more good than harm. Plus, we are all continuing to have fun together. All for one and one for all, right?

There have been some attempted kidnappings in the area over the last week that have been quite the topic of conversation with the kiddos as of late. They seem quite positive that it must be the same person that broke into our cars. I guess the whole car incident has traumatized them a bit more than I had anticipated. I must admit, though, it is fun to watch their little brains work. Their imaginations are running wild and it is a bit difficult to keep them grounded with all of the excitement. It would be a lot easier if we lived in their world though. Wouldn't it be nice if all burglars and kidnappers wore black and white striped jumpers and the same person committed all of the crimes?

Kid brains are awesome.

They keep me full of purpose.
