Playing on the Wii

There’s no better way to relax on a stormy day than to play games. We fired up the Wii, and introduced Namine to Wii Sports and Mario Kart.

New pair of shoes

Contrary to doctors’ predictions, Namine’s feet continue to grow. Her Mary Jane sneakers have served her well, but the wear and tear of walking, crawling, and scooting — combined with the fact that the shoes almost don’t fit anymore — has necessitated getting new ones.

Brackets and Sass

The WordPress theme I run on eichefam.net is one I’ve built myself from the ground up. I had initially set it up using Less to compile the stylesheet, but I really wasn’t using any of its advantages (like nesting, loops, that kind of thing) over plain old CSS. After doing some reading, I came to the conclusion (as many others have) that I ought to be using Sass instead. So I set out to improve my code.

Heart surgery

Jessica, Namine, and I went to the hospital yesterday morning because Jessica’s mom Charlene was having heart surgery. We weren’t sure what precisely was being done — from what I understood, it wasn’t even clear yet to Charlene, either — but at the very least, the wiring in her pacemaker/defibrillator was being replaced. I am happy to say that the surgery went well, and she spent the night in the ICU for recovery.
