Another Recovery Update

Yesterday was a good day. She worked all day and seemed to get along pretty well. She could see her computer screen and was not too light sensitive. Her eyes still got dry quickly and would occasionally hit her with sharp pains. But overall the day gave us hope for a happy outcome. Rebekah had the protective contacts removed this …

Using Scrivener for simple project management

I am a bit of a “productivity application” junkie. I haven’t read David Allen’s book but I have read enough about GTD other places to know that I need to be better organized. My addiction is especially bad because I end up wasting more time searching for and trying new apps than I would ever save by actually picking one …

PRK Recovery Update

Well, it’s been three days since Rebekah had PRK surgery. Since the surgery she hasn’t been able to open her eyes for more than about 2 seconds.

Every time Shaun and I meet I end up telling him about some cool little Mac application that he just has to download. The last one …

Speaking of churches…

Basically this translates into “every holiday we are getting together with someone to eat a meal.” This is definitely a good thing and something that Rebekah and I fully intend …

Too many churches?

Rebekah and I have been married for about a year and a half and still haven’t really felt connected in a local church. We met some wonderful people at the church we joined when we got married and we love a lot of things about that church. It is a great church. However, there has still always been some kind …
