2016.03.15.TUE – Part Of A Dream

This building, in Hillsboro, Texas, does not resemble the house in my dream, except for the large wall of windows, but it was next to a gas station, and it was one of which I said at the time “it should be turned into a house”. (Copyright © 2012 by Wil C. Fry.) There was[…]

2015.08.17: Fifth House-iversary

Today marks the fifth anniversary of the day we got the keys to this house (see First Blog From The House). As with most things, it sometimes seems longer than that and sometimes seems like a blip. See previous House-iversary entries. • First • Second • Third • Fourth • Most of the negatives/positives I’ve[…]

Fourth House-iversary

Today marks the end of four years in this house, and 12 days from now we’ll have been in Killeen for five years. I’m tempted to say that time has “flown”, but in most ways of looking at it, it actually does seem like five years. Aside: If I’m keeping track correctly, tomorrow is my[…]

Year In Review: 2013

15 images in this entry Without question, our son Benjamin occupied more of our time and thoughts than anything else in 2013. Other significant occurrences included the potty-training of Rebecca, the buying of our minivan, and all the rain. The year also saw the umpteenth shutdown of the federal government, which was supposed to affect[…]

Early 2013: To Do List

Comments: No Comments
Published on: 2013.03.13

Some things on my “To Do List”, mostly related to home improvement: (Note: Some of these are actually “might do someday”, rather than “need to do”.) * Finish going through “old stuff” (mostly documents, but also books, CDs, everything else) Cost: $0 Ease: time-consuming * Shelf in laundry room, north wall Cost: $20? Ease: easy[…]

2013.02.10: Dream: Snowstorm At The Bank House

I was in our neighborhood, but there was a new street that I hadn’t noticed before, with one new house built on it. I was interested in the house because its lot was larger than the rest, twice as wide and five times as long. It appeared to be recently finished but empty. I guessed[…]

Year In Review: 2012

Much like 2011 (Year in Review: 2011), the year 2012 saw my wife and I focusing mostly on our house/property and on our daughter Rebecca, though perhaps not as exclusively this time. For one thing, we announced in December that my wife is pregnant again, with a birth date scheduled for June 23 or so.[…]

Some thoughts from the last couple of days: * Started mapping out the studs on the garage’s north wall for the big upcoming shelf project. Discovered that the studs aren’t a uniform 16 inches apart. Most of them are, but because of the length of the house, two studs are only 7″ apart, while the[…]

Two-Year House-iversary

[I was incorrect in a previous post; not sure why. Aug. 17 is the actual date we got the keys to the house (not Aug. 18). So this post is even later than I’d previously thought.] Wow. Two years. That means our house isn’t new anymore. It means we’re two years older than the spry,[…]

One Year In The House

Today is the day. The one-year anniversary of getting the keys to our brand new house. There are no balloons, there’s no cake, and there are no gifts being exchanged. Just this note in my blog. Twelve days from now (Aug. 29) marks the end of our second year in Killeen, but somehow that’s not[…]

Yesterday, Rebecca received her final RSV shot. She took it like a big girl, only crying for a minute or so. By the time we got home, she was laughing and playful. During the visit to the clinic in Temple, we also saw her new weight: 13 lbs., 0 oz. (5.88 kg). She’s trying very[…]

Spring is in full swing. I always ignore “official” first days of seasons. It’s completely irrelevant unless you’re part of a cult that has some ceremony for those days. I don’t care if it’s March 20, 21, or 22. It doesn’t make any sense. What matters is when warmth returns to the earth, trees begin[…]

(Note the title is just today’s date. If a personal web log, or “blog”, is supposed to be the online version of a journal or diary, then I don’t see the need for titles. I just came to this realization recently, and writing titles is the hardest part of blogging for me.) Rebecca is doing[…]
