An exercise in frustration

As I sit here and type this entry, my wife, mother-in-law and kids are playing Trouble®. In particular, my son is having a rough time tonight. I'm sure he's tired and doesn't feel well. The fact that he's yelling at everything is driving me nuts. It's a good thing that my wife has the patience tonight. I think I lost mine at around 3pm today while we were shopping at IKEA.

How do I teach my children how to behave in public and not yell at them? I just dont' know some times. I often feel like raising my voice is the only way that they'll listen. I don't want to teach them that yelling is the answer, but how do I walk that fine line? It's always harder than you think it'll be, that's for sure.

Anyway, the beer that I just opened is cold and writing this is making me feel better. I guess the venting is what helps...

The One Fez

As I've mentioned before, I've been playing World of Warcraft. Some friends from my guild, The OmethDominion, have split. I'm playing up some alts and am helping them with their new guild, The One Fez. It's very tongue-in-cheek, but should be a good time.

WWdN: In Exile

It's been a while since I've posted an update. Suffice it to say that my first real foray into blogging hasn't gone so well. :-) Actually, I haven't really had time to say much. There have been times that I've wanted to say something, but actually pulling the trigger and hitting the "Blog This!" button hasn't worked.

I don't recall if I've posted this before, but I've really come to enjoy TV's Wil Wheaton. I started reading his site about 2 years ago and have been impressed with his writing style and passion. I may not always agree with him politically, but his passion and intelligence never cease to amaze me. If you haven't read his site, give it a look. (I should note that he completely hosed his original site and is temporarily using TypePad to host is "site in exile."
