When DaughterGeeding came home from school yesterday she rushed upstairs to my home office and excitedly showed me that she lost her first tooth. I was actually a bit sad, melancholy I guess. That darn girl is growing up on me, faster than I’d like. Before bedtime, she was telling me and her mother how she couldn’t wait to put her tooth under her pillow to see what the tooth fairy would bring. She then followed that up with a whisper, “But I really know it’s just you, Mom and Dad.”
BoyGeeding had his second blastball (tee-ball) practice yesterday. Last week just focused on baserunning, this week he learned how to scoop up a grounder and took his first swing at the tee. His father never had any formalized coaching when it came to anything baseball related, so I’m learning a few things myself. Parents were asked to participate helping the kids learn how to scoop up the ball. I jokingly told WifeGeeding that I didn’t want to, there was a reason why I’m paying for someone else to play with our kid. I could tell some parents were getting frustrated with their child not getting in front of the ball, scooping it up properly, or being able to throw it back. My approach was just to work on the bare basics and make sure BoyGeeding was having fun but paying attention.
WifeGeeding’s nephew’s birthday is approaching and he wants one of those LED adhesive strips that you can plug in and attach to a surface and change it to any color you want by remote. I started a search for “LED strip” on a few merchant websites and was surprised at some of the results. I didn’t consider “strip” could possibly result in some mature content. Oy vey. Que sera, sera.
I like my chiropractor and have seen her only a few times this year. When I check out, she always tells me her billing person is behind and not to worry about anything and I just go ahead and pay my copay. But yesterday I got the bill in the mail from her, the first one all year, and she handwrote and signed, “Please send payment ASAP.”
Buzzfeed – Obama Does The Tango In Argentina – CBS News White House correspondent Mark Knoller posted this image after the president’s tango, in which he says the dancer is reassuring First Lady Michelle Obama that it “was just a dance.” But she didn’t sit on the sidelines.

Whenever I hear a celebrity is about to become a parent for the first time, I often wonder what that experience must be like not having to worry one iota about finances regarding health care, day to day living, college, and retirement.
I had no idea they had a luxury brand – Hyundai’s upstart luxury brand Genesis — think Lexus to Toyota or Acura to Honda — has unveiled its next car. It’s a sports sedan called the New York Concept and, refreshingly, it actually looks rather special. – That’s one funky looking steering wheel that will never make it to market.
Today is Maundy Thursday, and in case you ever wondered what it is, it focuses on two important events that occurred the day before Jesus’ crucifixion: First, Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples and thereby instituted the Lord’s Supper, also called Communion (Luke 22:19-20). Some Christian churches observe a special Communion service on Maundy Thursday in memory of Jesus’ Last Supper with His disciples. Second, Jesus washed the disciples’ feet as an act of humility and service, thereby setting an example that we should love and serve one another in humility (John 13:3-17). Some Christian churches observe a foot-washing ceremony on Maundy Thursday to commemorate Jesus’ washing the feet of the disciples.The word Maundy is derived from the Latin word for “command.” The “Maundy” in “Maundy Thursday” refers to the command Jesus gave to the disciples at the Last Supper, that they should love and serve one another.
