Pondering on the fatherhood…

I wonder what God was thinking and feeling … when He created us.

Why do I ponder you ask? That’s because I find both joy and frustration at this point in time. It’s always a joy to see life growing as well as learning new things, doing things that you never imagined possible. Yet, when they whine and cry at the tiniest things, it can drive any human darn near crazy!

I had such case of the latter today… things were going as usual… fed them, cleaned them up, let them play a bit so I can rest, took them to Wal Mart for our shopping… and when we return, my second baby goes awall about the candy snack I give him. Wow… my voice climbs higher and louder than any rock band. As I sit down now, I still wonder what God was thinking… and all I have to say is that I’m so glad he’s not a human! 🙂

Techie and Kids

Well, take a look at this…

What is that you ask? It’s a computer that my daughter made! She sees me so much on computer that she decided to make her own! Awesome!! 😀

Next image we have is …

Anna listening to my favorite classical music piece: A. Vivaldi’s “Four Seasons”. Here’s my son, JJ, listening as well!

The headphone HD-535 is by the famous German company called Sennheiser. Their headphones are simply awesome. The detail that gets recreated on these phones is simply just amazing! I am a newbie audiophile in that sense. 😉 I always rip my music CDs at 192 kbps VBR (Variable Bit Rate) using Exact Audio Copy, a freeware, and LAME encoder. What comes out is near-CD quality MP3 audio! Yummy!

250 miles in 24 hours!

Wow… we didn’t really go out of town… yet, we managed to put about 250 miles on the Accord within the last 24 hour period!! 😮 Sheesh… Driving used to be such an amusement in the past. I used to drive to nowhere to just see the sights and when I went to school in Worcester, I used to drive to New England for foliage and such.

Those were the fun days… However, nowadays, it’s not so much fun anymore. Especially considering that most of the time is spent in traffic jam and always thinking of ways to get around it. You’d think that you never left New York City! 😛

It’s a mania of sorts to drive around this city of Houston. But if you do live here and have Internet access (uh… I guess most have that nowadays!), you must check out Houston Real-Time Traffic Map! It’s an essential aid in fighting against crime…uh… I mean traffic!

Don’t leave home without it! And at the gas price still being over $2/gallon, it’s quite expensive to get around this large city. But what are you going to do when everyone lives so far apart?! I got so caffeinated in the last 24 hours that I am now somewhat sick from it. It should get better though…

Have you tried driving around with two kids in the car who have to sing along to “Dora: The Explorer” soundtrack?! I must’ve heard it at least 100 times by now… Well, I gotta retain my sanity by seeing something more entertaining! 🙂

Work and Kids

Wow… the work at Boeing has been quite busy… so busy in fact that when I get home, I am just too tired and exhausted. However, since Soojin works 3 nights a week, I have to feed them and watch them till she returns.

This poses a problem. I have no energy and am too tired to do anything with them. This in turn brings double whammy of guilt (for not being able to play more with them). It’s taking a toll on me as I also have been working out at least two times a week (hopefully to bring that to three times a week). The only time I can workout at the new Starport Fitness Center is close to the closing time: 9:00 pm.

If you have kids, you know that trying to keep to a schedule is near impossible. I just hope I can get a breather… steam cloud . after my grandma’s funeral, I have practically zero vacation left so I can’t relax much either… oh well, time to hang onto God for my dear life! 😉
