Thanks to my co-worker Keith, I had tickets to the Texans pre-season game against the Saints, five rows back from the field! It was a surprise for Jackson, who never put together the surprise's clues - new Texans jersey and ear plugs. His first game was mostly successful, but he didn't care for the cannons fired after we scored. (That ended up not being much of an issue being as we lost.) Note the covered ears.

This morning, I awoke to realize I had not woken up. All week, Ben has been restless, waking up at random points in the night, meaning we were constantly waking up too. This morning, I woke up and started getting ready, but everyone else got to keep sleeping due to Meet the Teacher Day starting at 9 at the boys' school. When I left around 6:15, everyone was still sleeping. Shen I got to work around 7, I got this picture. Wish I was there.

Every afternoon, I inch along Westpark Tollway. If traffic starts backing up at this sign, I have about fifteen minutes to go. If it backs up before it, it's about five minutes added per half mile. Tonight, it took me ten minutes before I got here. This means commuting sucks.
