In the last few years I’ve not been great at keeping a log of my life. I’ve been reflecting on why and I think I’ve figured it out; I haven’t felt like I’ve had an audience for a while. When I was in college I kept a diary that was addressed to my grandkids, but since then life has gotten crazy (that happens when 4 children come into your life over the course of 6 years and Twitter was invented).
Our family has grown and changed a lot recently and this is my attempt to get back to the point where I’m keeping track of what’s going on. So this is entry 1, and there’s a chance it might be the last, but there’s also the chance that I’m now 98 years old and you’re one of my grandchildren and you don’t care because it’s something from Great Grandpa. You might also be a stranger and you don’t really care either way.
Anyway, now is a good time to start because Heidi just started her new job teaching art and I’ve started my new job of taking care of the house stuff (while maintaining the AirBnB and keeping Bootstrapper Studios running). I don’t know if I’ll be documenting everything via writing or video or photo, I just know I want to document it. So here’s a video of the first few days of 2019 when Heidi started her new job. I’m just using Hyperlapse on my phone and iMovie to do the editing. I don’t want to have a barrier to creating, so I don’t intend to do a lot of heavy editing on these, it’s mostly stream of thought so my kids will have something from me.
And a little bit of arguing to start it out
