Tacoma’s First Scratch

There comes time when a new vehicle sustains some kind of damage. Unfortunately that day came for my Tacoma today. As I was backing out the garage I swiped the body of the truck against the stucco. This is actually the second time I’ve done this (the first time was in a Corvette). I need to pay more attention when I back out. On the plus side most of the damage is on the fender flare and should be simple to repair. Sigh.


Hughes Family: September 2014

Yet another month has gone by. This one all too quickly. There were some good times, some bad times, some rip my hair out and then set the Earth on fire times. This post is going to be short and sweet (maybe just short).


My lovely little girl celebrated her birthday with a trip to Texas Road House. Spoiled much? Yes.


September highlights include putting up a tent in our microscopic backyard (Fran slept in the tent with Mike so he could pass off a scouting requirement). In an attempt to become tougher I ate a Jalapeno pepper. It turned into the worst stomach ache I can remember having (I also fed slices to my kids- some cried). Chloe ate her first Sushi roll- she seems partial to the California. The rest of September is a horrid blur. 

Our home is still not quite ready. It looks like we’ll be moving sometime in the next couple of weeks but the house still needs some work. I used to joke that I was building a fixer-upper, but it looks like the joke is on me. More to come… probably.
