+ 0 - 0 | § Happy happy tree killing

Kari, Alex and I went to the Albany Pine Bush Preserve do some volunteer work this morning.  Apparently, aspen trees tend to take over the pine bush, and they need help girdling aspens.  Girdling is when you cut a ring of their bark off around the bottom of the tree to kill it.  So, Kari and I took turns watching Alex, while the other went around merrily girdling aspens.  All in the name of protecting the preserve.  It did seem though that nature was fighting back a bit.  One of the ladies had a branch fall out of a tree onto her.  It didn't hurt her, but it did scare her a bit.  The big thing though was ticks!  Alex and Kari got off without any, but I on the other hand, had so many that I lost count.  I managed to brush most of them off my clothes before we left, but when I got home, I found 5 of them had crawlen up my leg!  Ewwww!

+ 0 - 0 | § Climbing to new heights

Yesterday, Alex learned how to climb up onto the sofa all by himself.  That's kinda neat, and at the same time, terrifying, as he's still working out how to get down on his own.

+ 0 - 0 | § Some scares yesterday

We had a couple of scares yesterday.  Alex managed to get his hand on a piece of chicken from his chicken noodle soup, and got it stuch in his esophagus.  As a result, no additional food could get down, and he immediately threw up any food that we gave him, for the next 6 hours.  He couldn't take fluids, or solids.  Luckily, in the evening, he managed to free it on his own, just before Kari and I were about to call the doctor.

To make matters worse, the carbon monoxide detector went off yesterday afternoon.  Kari took off to a neighbor's house, called the fire company, and they showed up  with their carbon monoxide detectors, and couldn't find anything.  That wasn't too terribly heartening, so we went and got a couple new carbon monoxide detectors to add to the house, and they haven't alarmed since.

On a positive side, we had a very nice weekend.  We went to the Tulip festival in Albany on Saturday.  We saw They Might Be Giants and ate alot of deep fried food.  Finding parking was tough, but it was a good day nonetheless, especially since the weather held out long enough for us to enjoy it.  On Sunday, we had a good Mother's Day.  Kari got a chance to read the newspaper more or less uniterrupted, and got her dose of Japanese food.
