New Stuff.

We did it! The website is fixed… almost. I’ve got the basics up and running, even if there’s some formatting and back end clean up still necessary. Overall, it’s good enough to move forward, so let’s go with it.

For now I’ve decided on three segments. Up top we will have the three most recent blog posts. I’m not going to even pretend that this will be updated daily. But maybe one a week or every other week. Something along those lines.

Next, we will have a monthly photo, likely family related. We’ve got two kids now, Johnny and Ava. I don’t doubt there will be plenty of pictures to keep this area active.

Lastly, I recently got into chess. So I’m playing around with a third segment exclusively about my chess adventures. If you don’t know how to play, or if you’re interested in learning, I intend to walk through my process. Maybe you can tag along! It’s madly fun.

Please feel free to share your thoughts or critiques about the new website design. I’m still educating myself on CSS so I appreciate your patience as this place gets cleaner.

      How y’all holding up on the west coast?

        Pretty good so far! We flew back from vacation in Palm Springs on March 11 (that was the day that all of the sports got canceled). Since then, I’ve only been in my car 4 times (3 times to drive to the grocery store parking lot for curb-side pick-up, and once to a pizza place for pizzas and beer). Since March 17, my wife has been in her car just once!

        We have a two-year old now, and I’ve been a stay-at-home dad with some part-time work with a local trail running race organizer (most of which I can do from home). That work has mostly ended for now, but that’s ok, as I’m doing more thing around the house. My wife is now a data science consultant, and she’s actually gotten busier since quarantine, so it kinda balanced out (she’s working more, I’m working less).

        Our daughter is mostly oblivious to everything out there. She asks about going to pre-school sometimes, or the zoo, or the store, but we do a lot of video chats with her classmates and teacher, friends, and family.

        I think the hardest part for her is that we don’t have a yard (we live in a townhouse), and nearest playgrounds and school fields are closed. We do try to get a lot of neighborhood walks in, though!

        Seattle is taking this stuff pretty seriously, so I think we’ll all be ok!

          Congrats on your daughter! Being without a yard has gotta be tricky with a tiny one, but for you and your family I expect that it will only invigorate future outdoorsiness.

          It’s great to hear from you! You should bring back T5T.
