We’ve been doing a TON of stuff lately:

1) Tearing out all the wallpaper in our house and repainting.

2) Getting sick (flu like) and getting better.

3) Catching up on yard work/gardening

4) Cooking (smoking meat, sushi, other goodness)

5) Watching movies (new Harry Potter is out . . . need to see it!)

6) Going to the lake:

Last weekend we spent Friday evening setting up the sailboat at home and doing some minor repairs. Saturday we headed to the lake only to have a semi throw a tire. Which knocked loose the fender on my trailer, which broke a weld and sent a bar through my hull, which bounced down and SHREDDED a tire. So I spent Sunday repairing the boat (and tire).

7) Working. Kelli took a week off just for the hell of it, but I’ve been working.

8.) Fishing

9) Poker. Tuesday nights are poker nights. Busy busy.

10) Getting motivated:
a) post pictures
b) brew Oktoberfest beer
c) finish house projects
d) running a marathon in September
e) surviving 100F every damn day

So I haven’t forgot about you. I am just keeping really busy (and being lazy). I manage to update my Facebook account a couple times a week and Kelli is on Facebook now too. So if you are really hungry for quasi-news, track me on there until I get myself back in gear.

The family is back from Colorado, Kaldun is back from Iowa, and all is well in the land of Fettkether. It’s been HOT in Oklahoma lately and my computer heats up out little den even more, so that’s my current no-picture excuse. But I have some amazing pictures to post from Colorado.

While I’ve been slacking on there, I’ve been doing fairly regular updates on Facebook. So if you are starved for news or lame comments, have it it. Otherwise . . .

We’ve been doing gardening work, work around the house, made rootbeer, cooking interesting meals mostly on the grill (and we did sushi), and a ton of sitting outside in the evenings with neighbors. Funny how 90F feels great after its been 104F outside all day.

I have not forgotten. Just continued my slacker ways.

Random Pictures from this Spring

June 12, 2009

Kaldun has been in Iowa for the past 2 weeks.   While he was gone I have gotten a ton of stuff accomplished:  I’ve been painting more,  I refinished our fence, I fixed the drain in the bathroom, reloaded software on my computer . . . most of my to-do list.  I even posted tons of pictures on the internet.

Ok, no.  I’ve been a total slacker.  A good bit of poker.  Some sitting around and yapping with friends.  Eating out more, happy hours, going shooting with a group of guys, I even went to the National Scion Car Show (who knoew there was such a thing? Have pictures, will post).  I did get new doors put on my house and otherwise take care of normal stuff, but my imaginary surge in motivation never materialized.

However, I did spent several hours last night organizing, naming, and notating some pictures so I can post them soon.  Canada pictures and the long herolded San Deigo pictures.  Pray for rain this weekend and it will be more likley to get done.  Either that or oppressive heat to keep me inside.

In the spring my mom came to visit for a few weeks.  At one point Beth came to town also and Kaldun and I met up with them for a day of fun around town.  We went did a scavenger hunt in Bass Pro Shops and at the sea food place they have (which is OK) . . .

. . .we then went bowling where I rocked over 100 all three games.

To prove that it is not all play and no work, here is Kaldun sorting the socks. You have to keep these kids working I tell ya’!

Shortly thereafter Kaldun and I went to the University of Tulsa’s spring football game and had a good time. Kaldun isn’t really that into sports but will tolerate me taking him to a Division I basketball or football game from time to time. He recently quit Tae Kwon Do as he was losing interest in it AND wants to try playing some other sports, which we decided would be a good thing. Tae Kwon Do was a 3 day a week commitment, which largely precluded other events.

Nothing else to really report. I’m sure there is plenty I have left out, but generally when I wait to post pictures people lose out on fun stories. So I am committed to getting back in the game! Next week we leave for Colorado for a wedding. We are planning on driving so Kaldun can see more of Oklahoma and Colorado, but we found round trip flights for $150 so those plans might change. Who knows . . .

EYE see you. From 2009-04-23.1

I know,I know

June 1, 2009

I’m falling into my old trap again. No real excuse either. I have Canada, Tulsa Tough,and many other pictures to post. But it’s so nice out!

Kaldun is in Iowa until we go to Colorado in a couple weeks. My plan is to be caught up by then.

Gone Fishin’

May 13, 2009

I have fallen back into my wayward ways. I’ll do better,I promise. Pictures to be posted: 5×5 sale. Mayo Tour (old building being renovated back to 1924 in Tulsa). Hiking in the rain. San Diego. And by then my Canada trip.

Gone for a week to Canada. Might update facebook (probably not), but I am bringing my digital camera and will update when I get back.

ps. Thought something was filed late at work that would have hung my boss out to dry (who would have shown up for a hearing to get slammed). Turns out my boss had the wrong filing deadline and everything was OK. But dang, I learned of the potential error around 9pm and my adrenaline is still spiked (now 10:40).
