Another week has come and gone.
Since we’ve been back in Texas, my wife and I returned pretty much to our regular schedules. I do the housework while she does the work that brings in the money. Since some of her co-workers have complicated days-off schedules for the holidays, my wife gets all the odd shifts, which she doesn’t mind. She works seven or eight days in a row, then has five days off.
I’m making good progress going through my old files. You have no idea how many thousands of papers I’ve collected or created over the years. If it was up to my wife, they’d just get tossed in the garbage. But she’s been nice enough to let me go through them one at a time, making a “keep or toss” decision for each one.
Slowly but surely, I’m getting the clutter out of my life.
Yesterday, my wife went to a salon in side JC Penney to get her hair done — it’s the first time she’s been to a salon since moving to Oklahoma. It was a big moment, believe me; she was incredibly happy afterward.

I also recently finished a German novel called “The Swarm” (read my review), which I found very enjoyable.
Last week, we saw “The Blind Side” (read my review), which was the best movie we’ve seen all year. By far.
Last night, I took a couple of photos of Marline and posted them to my Flickr. People are still trying to guess how I did it (keep in mind that my ceilings are only eight feet high). I’m assuming Richard will guess quickly:
And here’s one of the two of us, in case you’re keeping up with what we look like through the years.
