Monday Monologue #31

An interior monologue from me (and sometimes the wife).

  • We are now the proud parents of a college graduate! It doesn’t seem like that long ago that we were holding babies. Where did the time go?
  • I almost got sideswiped coming home from work, presumably by an inattentive (i.e. texting) driver. They were driving left of the center/turn lane even though they were going straight. I would have been really, really mad if they would have run into me.
  • Amazingly, nothing has been breaking down recently. So I’ve been spending a lot of my “free” time doing things around the house that I hadn’t gone undone because I so busy fixing broken stuff. The list was getting kinda long.
  • We’ve slowly been buying blu-rays that we haven’t seen to watch in the home theater. We always enjoy repeat viewings of “blockbusters”; but, we like the suspense of viewing a movie for the first time.


  1. Congrats on getting the first one through! It’s amazing how fast time flies. In two weeks, our baby will be a college senior! HOLY SHIT!

    I bet the next time we turn around, our granddaughter will be going to high school.

    Crazy how time flies.

    Congrats again!

    • Mr MD: Thank you! One more year and our daughter will be graduating. It really doesn’t seem like it’s been that long of a ride being a parent. They are both excellent students so grad school may be in one or both of their futures somewhere down the road.

      We know it’s probably not that that far away; but we would like to think we’re still a long way from being grandparents. At this point, there are no serious girlfriends/boyfriends in the picture although that can change rapidly.

    • Kazi: I remember their childhood like it was yesterday. It still doesn’t seem like it’s been that long. We’re happy to have a graduate; but really do wonder where the time went.
