I have a very annoying problem on my computer. Outlook crashes after it has been running for a while. I normally leave outlook running 24 hours a day so that I always retrieve my email. At least it runs long enough to download and read the new mail. I will probably wait until this weekend, and uninstall and reinstall outlook. This will mean have to re-enter my email rules for preventing spam. As I said, this is an annoying problem.

They are finally installing the new playground equipment at the park with the existing pink (but mostly green) playground. The new equipment is bright red, yellow, and blue, so I will have to come up with a new name for the park. They were still working on the new equipment when Sean and I walked over this evening, so Sean was able to watch the construction as well as play on the old equipment.

It was a little bit on the warm side, but Sean and I went for our evening walk to the park anyway. A boy about a year older than Sean was being a real brat and bragging about the fact that he could climb the ladder to go down the slide faster than Sean. Sean was very good natured about the whole thing, and had a good time anyway.

I met Cortney and Sean at the doctor’s office for Cortney’s O.B. appointment. I had to watch Sean while Cortney went in for her exam. Sean kept getting into trouble inside the office. He was alternating pulling all of the magazines off the table onto the floor and dashing into the examining area. I finally had to take Sean outside to let him run off some steam. Cortney and the new baby are doing fine.

I took Sean back to the playground where he fell last night. He took to the ladder without any hesitation at all, so he hasn’t lost any confidence in his climbing abilities. The park was very crowded around sunset, and Sean was very interested in everything going on. Afterwards, we had a really nice walk home.

Spy Game

The second movie of the weekend was Spy Game. Starring Robert Redford and Brad Pitt, this movie had lots of interesting plot twists. I was a bit taken aback at seeing alphanumeric pagers and pocket-sized cell phones in a movie that takes place in 1991, but the movie did feature some great on location scenes. I rate this movie a B.

Buy it.

Behind Enemy Lines

The first movie of the weekend was Behind Enemy Lines. Starring Gene Hackman in a predicable role, and Owen Wilson, who should stick with the comedy films, as the main character. Overall, this was a good action movie. Not the most sophisticated plot, and not the best acting, but some interesting action scenes made this an entertaining movie. I rate this movie a B.

Buy it.

Sean and I went to the park again this evening. Unfortunately, this evening didn’t turn out so well. Sean fell off the ladder on the playground equipment, hitting the back of his head on the way down. I reassured him for about five minutes or so, then tried to see if he wanted to play some more. He was sill crying, and ended up falling down into the sand. He went to rub his eyes, and covered his entire face with sand wetted by his tears. I tried to clean his face with water from the drinking fountain. Sean was still upset by all of this, so I had to carry him the entire way home. After we came home, Cortney gave Sean a bath to clean him up. Sean had a little bump on the back of his head. We tried to ice it down, but he didn’t want to have anything to do with the ice pack. Other than that, Sean had his normal evening routine, so I think he will be fine.

It was a nice day today, so Sean and I went on a long (and strenuous) hike. The trail was fairly busy, and quite a few people brought their dogs, which really seems to get Sean excited. We both took a long nap this afternoon to recover.

We had dust storms today, so we didn’t do our typical Friday afternoon trip to the park. Sean and I did brave the winds to walk over to the playground after dinner, where Sean had fun going down the slides. No one elsed braved the windy weather, so we had the playground to ourselves.

Cortney took Sean to the doctor today, thinking he might have pink-eye. The doctor thinks Sean has had a sinus infection, which lead to a case of conjunctivitus. So, Sean has to put up with antibiotics for 10 days.

This article is typical of the drivel being pushed by proponents of global warming. The claim that this is the warmest year in 1000 years is absurd. Earlier this millennium, farms existed on Greenland where we now have sheets of ice. I predict that in ten years, (man-made) global warming will look as silly as the Alar scare.

Sean ate well for dinner tonight, and we had a good time at the park. A couple of girls walked a big dog by the playground, and Sean had fun petting the dog. An older boy let Sean play with his soccer ball. Sean also had fun going down the slides on the playground. In addition to climbing up the steps to go down the slides, Sean can now climb up using the two horizontal bars. He is also getting better at climbing overall.

Sean tried a new twist on his pea-elimination trick. He started putting his peas into his water cup. Of course, I stopped him as soon as I caught him doing this. This was the last portion of the bag of frozen peas, so he wont’ have to go through this again for a while. He used to love the peas, so hopefully he will develop a taste for them again. It was a little too hot today, so he didn’t get to go for his walk after dinner. Cortney gave him a bath instead, and he didn’t seem to mind too much.

Poor Sean. He thought that if he cleared off his dinner plate, he would get a desert treat. During dinner, he carefully lifted each one of his peas, one-by-one, off the plate and onto the dinner table. He just couldn’t figure out why we didn’t give him anything to eat after that. At least he was rewarded with a nice walk to the playground.
