Today, we programmed the pump to run every 15 minutes with the infusion only lasting 7 minutes. The only disadvantage is that Marie and Buddy can't be separated long.

Houston is a friendly city. As I drive through this sprawling metropolis, the native Houstoners - Houstonits - Houstonorians - whatever ... constantly give me a Hiddey-h0 cowboy welcome on their horn usually followed by some sort of funny wave.

This morning the Fire Chief paid us a nice visit. While I was showering, the fire alarm went off.

Yes, Marie has lost ALL kitchen privileges until she gets some sleep. The kids have been trying to take them away from her for some time now anyway.

I wanted to thank everyone who came out tonight to the game. I heard a few supporting voices during the game. Not sure who, though. I hope it was exciting enough! :)

I know I won't be getting much sleep tonight...

Al & Marie -
It was a great game. Stef's assist was picture perfect, you would have been very proud of him. We enjoyed the game and I also have to commend Stef's fan far he had the most supporters then any other player.
