570

Turned in my laptop today. Putting the default win95 back on it, and wiping my data was like pulling the plug on an old friend.

Spent the rest of the day getting used to the “guest” machine I’m using until. Ate lunch at the Tandoor Indian Buffet in CH because I didn’t have to pay. thrashed more at work, had trouble focusing, the usual madness when I’ve got a lot on my mind.

Got home thinking all would be well. Not so. Grumpy Jacob and hyper Raymond.

*JUST* before bedtime, Ray was getting too rough, tumbled, and landed partly on Jacob – J’s ok, just scared. it wouldn’t have resulted in a stern punishment if he hadn’t been warned to stop and be more careful at twice before. I treat this sort of thing the way I treat fucking with electrical outlets – swift, draconian, a little hurt now saves a lot of hurt later.

And I swear, while he’s three, you’d think he would get through his skull by now that when Daddy says no, it’s *NO*.

But this will pass. He’ll be four before too long, and there’s hope at four. But 2 1/2-about 4 1/4 is tough on both the parents and the kids. And I dunno who has a harder time.

And people wonder why we don’t go out anymore.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.
