I think I am going to be in trouble

when distracting Payton while mommy is busy,
Payton will cry.

I don't have a problem with this, exactly
it's when she stops.
she will stop crying stop fussing and look at me, then
quickly look away, with effort to not look at me. even if I call.

not saying she is mad, or angry with me for denying her access to mommy
or that she is intentionally giving me the silent treatment.
I can just tell that this will be an effective tactic in the future.

I think I am going to be in trouble

useless statistics

it has only take 4 days(from birth) for "Payton Mclatchy"
to occuppy the top 2 when googled.

appearently just a search for "mclatchy" comes up with my blog at spot 2 and a website that doesn't exist at spot 1, and www.mclatchy.com at spot 3

isn't useless info fun

a change in prospective

the more I get to travel with my work, the more I get to see how different other places are, even when in close proximity. it helps me realize the vastness of this expanse we call earth is. I get to see how different other places are, and yet how very similar all places are.

it makes me feel small.

now that I have a daughter whom on our first day home had a temperature of over 100F, and a wife whom lost a lot of blood during delivery. I feel smaller now that my only focus is this family of 3.

I feel blessed.

after talking to a few friends on the different paths their lives have taken. it has forced me to look upon my shortcomings, mistakes, and bad choices.
Thankfully I stand where I am and where I want to be.

I feel blessed.

Baby Girl

More baby pictures to come, but here is the first of many.
This picture really doesn't do her the justice that it should. She is the most happy & beautiful baby I have ever seen.
Love: Misty

I have been writing some flash code for work lately, when I have been on trips mainly.
and I have been doing some thinking, dangerous I know, but I like it that way.
I think we (at new heights, or general church going public) need Flash based mascot,
if you were at history maker, you would have saw Fred the sock, Hydro had it's 'louie the lighting bug', and springfield power plant had its ' similing joe fission' .
it doesn't need to be 'life lessons' based. I am just thinking pour inuendos, and life reflections. or just plain situational humour. I think this could be an stange, but possible interesting tool.
or just something to make us just that more edgey. and I like edgey.
It's that feeling like when you are leaning back on a chair and you lean too far and just about fall off. ( I forget who I just quoted there).

Disappointments with Sony.

We just purchased last week, a Sony Digital camera.

it works great, backward compatible, Heck even with our old tapes, it actually reads them cleaner than the camera that recorded them.

But a major pseudo flaw, the camcorder does not come with any software to copy the raw footage to the computer, it will premix clips (that you can't choose) and add it's own music(removing the actual sound) at it's own predetermined length.

I just got a reply today stating that They(sony) Know their software is not capable of actually Letting you have actual access to the Raw footage. and recommend you by 3rd party stuff. good thind I allready own 3rd party software and hardware.

Logging Truck

Driving to work this morning, on Harris Rd in abby, a logging truck in the opposing lane
on an hairpin inside turn, and driving quite fast i will add. Just about hits a Flatdeck truck ahead of me, and his Logs extending out the back of his trailer Just make it over the car I was driving!!!!!down the center of the car.

If I would have been driving a taller I probably would not be writing this note.

I even got to see the little red flag attached to the logs, from the log point of view.

we went to the evanescence concert, i must be spoiled no media show, just lights and fog.

and the sound sucked for the earlier bands. the Trues sounded like they were in a tin can, or when you have a cold and you can't hear higher ranges.I am supispious of them not having a soundman, and they did theier own levels on stage. but when seether went on stage the appearent cold went away and we could here higher ranges again.

I hate to admit it, I think I went to a bubblegum band concert
(for lack of a better term) you know the type some of you went to NewKidsOnTheBlock, or backstreetboys, or britneyspears.
it was geeky enough that when the hit slow songs were played instead of having lighters, people lifted their blinky cellphones in pride.

mabey I will wait for a band to have at least 2 hit albums out before hand.
