Empty Nesters

A wonderful boquet of flowers.A Final Beginning??: “Our girls have finally left the house, so maybe this is “empty nest” syndrome. While I miss them desperately, I find myself at a standstill. I feel that my life was so wrapped up in my children that, through no fault of their own, I am now at a complete loss as to what to do. I know I have many contributions that would benefit the right situation. I know I’d be a good worker,a good friend. I am just at a loss how to achieve this.”

We knew this day would come, but we’ve always enjoyed having our girls around. They make us happy. Now that Haileigh is married and living in Arizona with her hubby and Bug is off at school we don’t get to see them as much. Couple that with a new job for me and moving to a different part of California makes for a huge shakeup in life.

I’ve struggled with living in San Luis Obispo a bit. I love the place, I really do, but I sometimes think we’ve had so many changes, all at once, that we’re still trying to settle.

We’ll get through this, we always do. It’s been an interesting year.

Twitter, It’s About Mobile

MG Siegler: “The most powerful aspect of Twitter, to me, is its mobile/client usage. The website is fine, but not its core, in my opinion. Some love it, some hate it. It will never be Facebook — it doesn’t have to be. Twitter’s mobile experience (no matter which app you use) is much better than Facebook’s because the simple nature of the network is a more natural fit for mobile.”

You’d think Zuck would understand how important mobile is. If he thinks Facebook Mobile is good, he’s smoking crack. Facebook’s mobile apps is absolutely hideous and buggy. This is where Twitter shines. There are multiple clients that outstrip the client offered by Twitter. Apps like Twitterrific and Tweetbot are fantastic. I easily do 90% of my tweeting from a mobile client.

Movie line of the week

You gotta love the movies.Good morning movie liners! I know it’s been a while, here’s the line, good luck!

“…And the beauty part is the babies don’t even have to listen ’cause they’re asleep! You know, I wish my parents played Mozart when I slept because half the time I don’t even know what the heck anyone’s talking about!”

Ok, quick, what movie! Send your guesses here.

Side note: Every time I see this scene all I can think of is our youngest daughter, Bug.
