Hooked on Notes

Since I’ve discovered it, I’ve become an “Add a Note” addict on Flickr. One of mine is an example. I’ve been doing a few notes on other pictures of my Flickr buddies as well.

Well, think about it. If you have something to mention about a certain thing other than the subject of the picture, it’s better to make a note of that, right? So, leave me alone.

I’m also a frustrated photographer. And a frustrated painter. And a frustrated…forget it.

You Smiled At Me

How can you resist such a wonderful smile?

So content. :)

Anywho, it’s been a while since I last posted, I know. The latest:

We finally did the closing for our mortgage refinancing yesterday. What a relief! We waited for a couple of months for this to finish. We were told that the old mortgage company was giving the new mortgage company a hard time in “letting us go”, that’s why it took so long. Oh well, good riddance to the old mortgage company. We never liked them and their service. Let’s just hope this new one will give us some breathing space.

Last Sunday, Luci and I reaffirmed our faith and became members to a Presbyterian church in Dallas. The members are really heart-warming and friendly, and I must say that I already felt like part of the church family when we started attending regularly the last few weeks of May. We’ll be having Dani’s baptism there on the 3rd week of July.

My sleeping schedule is still a little out there. I don’t really remember when I feed the baby at night and going back to sleep again. When Dani is 2 months next week, I’ll have to be strict in setting the sleeping hours for both of us. Or else I’ll be groggy all the time when I return to work in August.

Well, that’s it for now. I know it’s short, but that’s all the fun stuff that’s happened lately.

Caverns and Bluebonnets

Last Wednesday, Luci and I decided to go Seminole, TX to look at his old high school. While consulting our map, I saw the name Carlsbad, and thought that was a funny name for a city. Luci said there were some caverns in Carlsbad that might be interesting to check out. So after our short visit to Seminole, we went onwards to Carlsbad, NM. You can click on the link on the picture below to check it out.


After Carlsbad, we went home and decided to check out the Bluebonnet Trails Festival in Ennis, TX which was a 30-minute drive from the house. Look at all those bluebonnets!


I also added newer pictures including my oath-taking pictures and birthday pictures, so feel free to browse. You’ll know what’s current by the date the pictures were added.

Okay. I know I haven’t updated.

I am still on “vacation mode”.

I’m still catching up on work, or at least getting used to it again. Things had happened, as I gathered, that sorta mixed up the daily routine.

All the hoopla about the reunion I attended was a little tiring. If you want to see some pictures: SJUMC. Those are the church pictures, so you probably won’t see me there as much. I will update my own gallery of any personal stuff. Later.

I really love one picture that was of my family. It’s one of the rarest times that my family got together and took one, especially with both my parents. There is probably a 10 in 1 chance that I had a picture taken with both my parents. Of course, you know by now, that they were divorced since I was 6. I have a stepmom, and I thank the Lord that she didn’t come to the reunion. It would have been a little interesting then.

I discovered that my parents’ divorce made a major impact in not only my siblings, but the rest of the church family. My family was one of the pioneers of the church we grew up in, and since my parents were both so active in church, and loved, and very well known, their separation affected everyone that was around them. (I wouldn’t know, I was still young to even be affected.) So, you would have seen a virtual sigh of relief from the whole group that attended the reunion when the stepmom didn’t show. Heh.

Sorry to cut it short, but yeah. Busy.
