Some random stuff I sent in an email to Mom...
Jennie opened up all the bags of clothes yesterday -- they covered the bed completely with stacks about half way to the ceiling! We won't have to buy clothes for a long time! It's awesome.(My brother and sister-in-law give us hand-me-downs from time to time from their two girls. We rarely have to buy clothes for Mac.)
Work is kinda busy. But not too bad. Just always playing catch up. They awarded me a framed certificate and an engraved pen for working here for 5 years now. It was nice to be recognized. One nice lady said it was really 35 years, because they're "dog years." I thought that was funny (and agreed with her).
Mac is walking like crazy. She reverts to crawling every now and then, but for the most part she is a walker.
Our Square Dance club is doing lessons again, and Jennie and I are helping as Angels on Tues and Thurs nights. It is fun, and good exercise for us.
The Ruby programming group that I started is starting to grow. We meet once a month, and in March, me and another guy are going to do a workshop for beginners; we're hoping to get a lot of people to come. We already have a sponsor, and I asked O'Reilly (a book publisher) to donate a bunch high-dollar programming books to use as prizes or whatever. I'm excited about it.
