My wife, Angela, studied music for the first couple of years at college. She plays the flute and still performs a few times a year (mostly at our church). However, in all the years we’ve been together, we’ve never actually played any music together. In fact, we haven’t really created many projects together (aside from… Continue reading Creating Music (Notation) Together
While it’s not exactly the reason for the season, watching Angela rock out to her new copy of Guitar Hero III — Legends of Rock (Wii) in her PJ’s is a pretty good reason to love Christmas morning. That kind of sums up the Christmas we’re having here in Richmond this year. We’ve been just… Continue reading Happy Christmas, 2007
First of all, let me announce what is probably the worst kept secret since we announced we were pregnant: Angela and I have made the decision to move to Franklin, TN (that’s near Nashville for you non-Tennesseans). We had been discussing the idea of doing so since July. When I say discussing, I mean Angela… Continue reading Ch-ch-changes!
Angela and I had a relaxing few days (mostly) at home over the past weekend. We spent most of the weekend at home, although Friday night we went to pick up our race numbers for the following morning’s 10k as well as hit the grocery store for the first time in weeks. We cleaned up… Continue reading A Nice Spring Weekend
This past weekend, it had finally gotten warm enough I could no longer put off my duties as house grounds keeper. I spent part of Saturday trimming, edging, weeding and mowing. After Angela got home around 6:00 pm, I wrapped up and took a shower. Afterwards, I decided it was time to shave the beard… Continue reading How I Know Iâ€™ll Be Married A Long Time — Part III
Well, it’s probably the worst kept secret of our lives, but just so the whole world knows: …and we’re both really excited. We had our first doctor’s visit this afternoon and everything looks great! So, around late August the whole world will get to know baby Coleman-Dyer (or Dyer-Coleman, we’re still working that out). We’ve been dying… Continue reading We’re Having A Baby
About 7:00am on Saturday morning (Nov. 16th), Angela ran into the bedroom, threw off the covers, and yanked me by the arm. “Come here. You need to see this.” Of all the thoughts running through my head (not that many, since I was still mostly asleep), none of them had anything to do with family. I naturally… Continue reading So, We’re Pregnant
Upon returning to Richmond after the VA Beach Half-marathon, we were pretty much in the mood to take it easy. We spent most of the time here around the house, all being pretty tired. Monday morning was labor day, and Jason J. treated the house to a big stack of waffles. Now, I hear that… Continue reading Surprise Birthday Party
Nearly two weeks ago now, I celebrated my thirtieth birthday. However, you can save your old jokes for someone else. I just don’t feel old. In fact, I feel like I’ve finally reached the point I’ve been working towards all my life up until this point. It’s actually a great feeling. Of course, a big… Continue reading Thrity Something, Something Wordy
