Nothing to report

Tyler and Lillian at the Palo Alto Children's Museum over Thanksgiving

My brother Austin told me about the Enigma machine. He explained in great detail all about how it worked and how it was supposed to create codes that were unbreakable (which, incidentally, is what Austin does for a living). It made sense at the time, sort of, but like so many things that my genius brother has explained to me: the theory of relativity, how to "see ahead" in chess, alternating currents, my grasp on it lasted only as long as he was talking. The one thing I solidly remember from our conversation is that they way Team B (Britain?) was able to crack Team A's (Germany?) code is because Team A sent the same message over and over again, which was: Nothing to report.

Such is my life, but without the Enigma machine part. I'm feeling a little better, but I still throw up mostly every day. Aaaaaaaand... that's about all that's happening around here. I just hang out with the kids and the dog (well, mostly I yell at the dog). I get unbelievably tired and/or barfy around 8:00 at night, and I used to just go to bed, but Tyler requested that I at least sleep on the couch until he goes to bed, so we can pretend that we're spending time together.

Um.... what else is news... Lillian has a cold. Nora's getting a tooth. The software on my phone crashed, so I'm incommunicado (by phone) for a few days. And today after storytime, I'm thinking of getting down the mystery box in the garage to see what's in it. It's from our storage shed that we had at our apartment in SLO, so I haven't seen the contents for about a year and a half. I have no idea what's in it. It could be really exciting... or really lame. I'm hoping for exciting.

I feel the same way I've been wanting to update my blog but its been so boring around here that I had nothing to talk about so I finally just put up a couple of pictures of Carson and called it good.

I don't think your going to like the box. I've been into it a couple of times and it's not that exciting.

Two words about the dog: Cesar Millan. Competely turned our dog around.
