Something has to change so I am trying to start working out again so I can get down to a weight that I can easily maintain. Here's to hoping I can make this happen. My flat feet will thank me if I can. Its no fun when you have flat feet and play soccer carrying about 20 extra pounds.

The missus has left for a ten day trip to attend a couple conferences. This means it will be a men’s only affair in the Wallace house for a week and a half. So far things are going okay, but it’s only been twenty-four hours since she left and the boys are staying with my mom for the night so I can go to my final soccer game of the season. So come Monday morning will be the real test. I will be a single dad with 2 toddlers. I am hoping and praying there are no morning meltdowns while getting them ready for school. I can handle them any other time, but when they need to get to school and I need to get to work I can’t take it.
So wish me luck. Whether things go great or poorly, it will be quite a learning experience for myself and the boys. I am sure there will be quite a few funny stories after all is said and done.

One of the things I have noticed since I've been working is how many people lack adequate writing skills. I know you might be thinking, "You are a software engineer. The only thing you need to know how to write is code." That is only partially true. There is so much documentation that you have to write as a software engineer, not including writing white papers, which are basically small research papers where you explain a formal opinion on a technology (I've actually never written one, but that should probably change). I can't tell you how many times I've had to read through poorly written documents where often the information is not clear and makes no sense.
Anyway, I'm rambling at this point. There is no rhyme or reason behind this post. I just had a strong urge to actually write for the sake of writing for the first time in a long time. Hopefully this is the beginning of me getting back in touch with my inner writer. :)

So I am going to make a pledge to myself to try and snap a few pics a week. That should certainly get me going on my way and I can finally have recent pics of my boys when people ask to see them. :)
