The Good The Bad and The Ugly

Flipper died a natual death, he caught a nasty virus. . . .  They were all in love with dying, they were doing it in Texas.
I have just found a new meaning to those words from the song Avalanche.  We are currently battling our own nasty virus, computer virus that is!  We are currently in the process of backing up files so we can wipe the whole thing.  And man it's a big job since we haven't gotten on it before and I've taken like a million pictures.  As if life weren't busy enough right now.  I guess we needed something to do in our not very much of it spare time.  Oh well, I guess that means no more putting off spending the millions of dollars to upgrade to Windows 7.  Which also means having to purchase the latest Adobe Photoshop, since the others don't work with Windows 7.
In other news, for those who don't know, Douglas is going to try and get into Med School.  He has about 1 1/2 years of pre-requisites before he can take the M-CATs.  Then hopefully he will be accepted the first time which means he'll start in 2012.  After that it's a breezy 4 years of Med school followed by 3-6 of Residency (closer to 6 than 3 probably).  Yea more school and homework!
Now that the Bad and Ugly are out of the way, on to the Good.  Xander is as cute as ever.  He does the stairs really well, though it scares me to watch him sometimes.  He has started to take a few steps here and there by himself.  I think he could have done it sooner, but he thought he needed to keep hanging on to stuff, which he still sometimes thinks.  But it's exciting and cute.  Japheth just keeps getting smarter every day!  He has been wanting to homework just like his daddy, so we bought a pre-school activity book at Walmart and have been going through some pages on most days.  I don't know what we'll do when it comes time for school and he's already learned everything.  I think it'll still be fun for him, but I worry he'll be bored.  At least he has funny to fall back on, right?  He thinks he's hilarious, and Xander laughing his head off at him only helps him know it for sure.  I love when they play well together, it really is fun to see them laugh together.
And finally, just wishing everyone a happy 4th of July!
