Epic Battle

This morning Jobina left early to go to the Pan Am Clinic to get her ankle looked at so I was home with the kids. Trying to work at home and watch kids is pretty much an exercise in futility. Around 11:00 I was frustrated as I was trying to work on my computer and being interrupted about every minute and half. Riker seemed to be getting sad. He sidled up to me and said "Hey Dad, want to have a little wrestle?" I looked down into his big eyes and my heart melted. "OK, I said, just a little one." A few minutes later we were upstairs throwing each other around on Jobina and I's king size bed and having a grand old time. Trinity (AKA "Karate girl") joined the fray and we rough housed for a good 10 minutes or so. It wasn't the most productive morning, but I know I at least accomplished one good thing: wrestling with my kids. Schoolwork/real estate investing - zero. Half decent parenting - score!

May Light increase!

Sounds to me like you have your priorities straight to me.

Good for you Mark! Sometimes it's better to just drop what you're doing and play with your children. I know I've had times like that too. How's Jobina's ankle?

She went to the Pan Am sports injury clinic yesterday where the doctor told her she had ligament damage. Apparently she is to ice it when it hurts really bad but to walk on it as much as possible and in 6 weeks it should be mostly better. Thanks for asking Michelle!
