Because shooting one Mother’s Day video was clearly not enough this year…
Category » Life in General
I created this stop motion animation in honor of the two greatest moms I know. Happy Mother’s Day, Keri and mom. I’m forever grateful for your love and kindness!
They’re not always this happy, but I’m glad I caught this moment on video.
My parents arrived in Knoxville yesterday, and lo and behold, my dad has grown a beard. I couldn’t keep myself from making this comparison.
Thanks, Dad, for being a good sport!
Make no mistake, my daughter has me wrapped around her finger, but this weekend I’ve come away with a few great shots of the boys.
Every once in a while, my two oldest kids and I will sit down and have a “drawing party” together. Sometimes it’s coloring, and other times it’s freehand. Today was a freehand day, and since the sketch turned out nice enough, I decided to go ahead and ink it in. Maybe I’ll add some color digitally, like I did with the Wild Thing last year.
By the way, if you haven’t heard yet, my wife and kids are dressing up in Star Wars costumes for Halloween. I’m building my own Boba Fett costume, and I’ve become completely obsessed with the project. Maybe I’ll share a few pics sometime soon. :)
The surgery seems to have been completely successful in removing the sciatica pain that I felt going through my leg, which is wonderful news. I can happily sit in a chair again. I didn’t realize how much I missed this.
In place of the sciatica, I now have pain in my spine, but I expect that to get better every week.
My back in supposed to stay straight at all times, so no bending. Even still, I’m managing to put on my socks by myself now. I’m trying to walk a couple of miles each day, and each day some of the old-man shuffle seems to go away.
The worst thing I’m dealing with now is making transitions: laying down, rolling over in bed, and getting up from bed. These things are slow and painful, and they make me feel like my arms and legs are a mile long – getting tangled and making it very hard to keep my back straight through the process.
Oh, and sneezes. And the evil back cramps I had last night (yes, there apparently is such a thing). Shudder.
