The Great American School Bus Conversion: Part 1

One of my favorite movies of all time is Road Trip. It's not exactly the pinnacle of cinematography, and the acting isn't going to win any awards, but it does include a couple of my favorite themes:

1. Ditching school
2. Road tripping

My first experience road tripping was when I graduated from high school. Five friends and I took one of those cool vans ("a REAL van.. this was before all that minivan crap") from Texas to Florida, and then all the way up to Maine. I got off in Massachusetts, but the rest of the crew continued on to Chicago and then back South.

Lessons Learned From Day 3 of Being a Temporary Stay-at-Home Dad

On Military Dad

We're now in the home stretch! My wife's plane will land in about 24 hours, and I'll be able to regain my position as weird guy that leaves the house for half the day and then tickles the kids (and sometimes the wife) when he gets home. Please forgive any typos in today's post. I'm currently suffering from an extreme case of sleep deprivation which I'll talk all about in the failures section. I'm not 100% sure my keyboard is even plugged in at the moment.

What I Learned

Little Dude Really Likes Bacon - I kind of new this because he's the only one in the house besides me that will eat it, but I was surprised by the extent. I made pancakes and bacon for dinner last night, and he was excited because he got to help. I set the bacon down on the table and then went to get the pancakes. By the time I got back 30 seconds later, he had already eaten two pieces and two other pieces were sitting on his plate...I only made five pieces.

He's Not Actually Asleep - After he went to bed, I took care of a few things around the house. Finishing those, I went to check on him and saw that he was sleeping in the completely peaceful and adorable way that he has. Therefore, I sat down on the couch to watch a little television. I was about 20 minutes into the show when I happened to look over my shoulder and see him sitting at the top of the stairs watching with me. Since I happened to be watching It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, I think there's about to be a lot more words that I'm going to have to explain to his mother.
