Singing Cats Picture


Singing Cats

My wife and I were shopping in a Ross store the other day and came across this statue:
Every time I see it I chuckle.  Who the heck would put this in their house in a serious manner?  I love it!

Beer in Fridge Directly Related to Disposable Income

So here I am, about 3.3 months from becoming a father if all goes as planned.  Yup, September 30th of 2008 is the day our little son, Cameron, is scheduled to bring his sweet feet into this world.
Just like any parents-to-be, my wife and I are saving every penny we can to help pay for this terrible investment / bundle of joy because apparently, babies need to be changed more than once or twice a day, and those diaper costs can really add up!
So since I've buckled down and tried to spend money only on necessities like gas, food, and the occasional hoppy beverage, I've noticed a terrible occurrence.  My fridge has lost beauties like this:
And have since been replaced with the likes of this:
So as you can imagine, I'm not the happiest of campers.  Ah well, I guess having a son will all make up for it.  How about anyone reading this?  Have you had to spend less money on the finer things in life to save some money?

Nathan Sehl Contribution Success

My wife and I went over to the Sehl's house along with our neighbors a couple weeks ago to show them our successful collection of over $800 worth of pledges!

As you can see, Nathan is months ahead of what the doctors told him he should expect as far as walking, talking, etc...and we were very happy to see that. If you would like to help Nathan and his family with anything else, please contact me. My email address is mikepernecky (at sign) gmail (dot} com. I didn't type it because it's harder for a spam program to pick it up this way.

Thank you for all your help!

Good Weekend

I had a great weekend, my brother was in town, we went to watch the White Sox play (and lose, unfortunately) the Tampa Bay the Rays are doing quite well, which is nice to see.  I took a picture from our horrible seats and posted them on my mobile blog (link on the right) or just  We also saw Sex and the City which was good, highly recommended if you liked the show.  Good times all together.
Glad to be back at work though! :)
