Marley’s bedtime song

Ancha Es Castilla – Mägo De Oz

Si Crees Que Todo Cuanto Has Escuchado No Tiene Contigo Nada Que Ver. Estas Amigo Equivocado Parate A Ver, Parate A Ver. Todos Soñamos Con Ser Un Caballero Y Tener Algo Por Lo Que Luchar Y Un Amor Que Defender. Si Tienes Un Ideal, Un Principio Defiendelo Y Aferrate A El. Alguien Escribio Que La Vida Es Sueño Y Los Sueños, Sueños Son. Se Rebelde Como El Mar Se Noble Por Que Al Final De Esta Vida Llevarás Tu Libertad.

No Importa Cuan Loco Te Crean Todos Mantente Firme, Mantente En Pie. Buscar Tu Sitio, Encontrarte A Ti Mismo Es Tu Mision, Es La Razón. Gritale Al Cielo Que No Quieres Ser Solo Uno Mas Ancha Es Castilla Y El Sol Tu Caminar Guiará.

Obviously we sing her a non-metal version of it but it works every time. And yes, the song is in Spanish, apologies.

Apparently, Face ID does t work with this thing on. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Today I’ve decided that I’m going to listen to Enema of the State by blink-182, all day, and relive some memories.

Ged Maheux:

If you won’t listen to the CDC when they tell you to vaccinate your kids, you should really just go ahead and eat that lettuce, don’t you think?


What if?

I kinda want to make a little experiment. In the past I have always used Ulysses as my main text editor. Mainly because of its Wordpress integration. Now that I am lo longer using WP as my blog hosting space, I’ve been using Drafts 5: Capture ‣‣ Act and posting to with a costumed action. But what about Bear? I mean, I can still always start any ideas in Drafts and then move them to Bear for long time storage. Or just flat out use Bear as my main text editor? I’d probably be missing some automation there but I’m sure I can figure something out.

For the joy of it.

Wow! I wrote this post back in 2017, when I decided to start “blogging”. I was using Wordpress at the time. It has been roughly a year and a half (give or take) since then. Recently I’ve migrated everything from WP to and the intention still remains.

a place where I can express myself, talk about things that interest me…

If anything has changed since is the fact that I am less scared or intimidated by sharing my thoughts and put them on the web. Also I ejoy more talking/blogging about things I enjoy and love, no matter how small. To celebrate the good things in life. To do it for the joy of it, even if only one person reads it. I have always been all about celebrating and praising the things we love and enjoy rather than criticize everything in this world. Of course there will always be some criticism, but not so much in this space that I have “created”, if that makes any sense.

Anyway, I guess I should go ahead and setup a calendar event for my “blogging-birthday”, for next February and celebrate 2 years of me pretending I’m blogging? No? Okay

Coworker: Gabe, get it together!

Me: Been trying that since 1983

Crispy Apple Turnover by Woodland Empire Ale Craft: The first one of this season (2016)

I miss TapCellar, was such a great app for beer journaling. I don’t think there will ever be a good replacement for it. I guess Untapped would be the obvious choice but I really don’t enjoy using it.

Didn’t think such thing was possible. #inboxzero

My “office” corner is lit ?

Did this over the weekend. I dipped a donut in fruity pebbles at the hospital. Please don’t judge me, desperate times!

Activity update for November 18, 2018

As you can see there are a few days in which I failed to close some of my rings. I guess I can use the “Luna” excuse, by spending a couple of days at the hospital and all that stuff. I need to get back on track ASAP! And it will challenging, it’s thanksgiving week and family is coming to meet the new baby.

New socks 🧦, for the professional in me!

A Luna day.

Today was a good interesting day in many ways. We are home (yay!), Annie (aka my wife) was discharged from the hospital. Only downside of it all is that baby Luna didn’t get to come home with us. Luna will have to stay at the hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) for a few weeks, so it was kind of bittersweet living the hospital today. Although, knowing that she is having the best care is a little comforting and makes it a little easier, but still. However, a few great things did happen today. Annie finally felt well enough to be able to go to the NICU on her own and spend some time with the baby, whilst I took care of our 2-year-old (aka Marley). She had time to hold her, bond with her and also breast-feeding her, which apparently baby Luna picked up pretty well. That made everybody happy because apparently that is not very common with preemies. Grandparents also had a chance to come visit and spend sometime with their new granddaughter. And then it was big-sister-Marley’s turn (dun dun duuuun!), she had been asking all day to go see baby Luna.

I was very much anticipating this moment, see how she’d react to her baby sister and it was both a little unexpected and magical. Luna was in Annie’s arms and she immediately went straight to them and try to get a good look at her baby sister. She would look at her, try to touch her head and asking many questions, of course. Right after it was feeding time, the entire time Marley was fixed on Luna and every time Marley would talk, Luna would recognize Marley’s voice and steer her attention in whichever way Marley was talking from. Then Marley, very gently started to give kisses to her baby sister and at that moment is when I almost lost it a bit (somehow the room got very hot and my eyes started to get a little “sweaty”).

I honestly had no idea how Marley was going to react or behave and she behaved like a loving and caring big sister. I’m not sure for how long that will last but I’ll take it for now. She also was bummed that we couldn’t take baby with us today. But she also understands that baby Luna needs to get better before she can come home. So those three to four hours we spent as a family were pretty amazing, my heart was full with joy.

On a side note baby Luna is doing awesome! She can breath on her own and maintain her temperature well. Still she will be spending a long time at the hospital before she gets to come home. We are hopping that she’ll be at home with us by Christmas. We shall see!

Metal Gear?

I believe I found the next iteration of the walking tank known as Metal Gear 😅

Luna Isabel 🐬

I had to. #PokemonLetsGo

Luna Isabel Santiago

We finally found a name!

Casey Liss:

I’m, as the kids say, here for this. (Seriously though, all of us — me too — are too grumpy all the time. Let’s celebrate the good parts of life. Even the silly ones. Sometimes, especially the silly ones.)…

Amen to this.

Hello World!

Born November 15 at 6:36pm, in Boise Idaho, 4 lb 6 oz (give or take), 17 and ¾ inches long. She couldn’t wait long enough to meet us so she decided 33 weeks and 2 days was long enough. At the moment we are yet to decide on a name, so for now we are calling her “Baby Dolphin” as her sister (Marley) does. Mom is fine, baby will probably spend sometime in the NICU before she can come home with us but everything is looking good.

Can I have a beer now? :)

Batman (1989)

Today in 1989, Batman was released on VHS!!!!! And it would proceed to be a cornerstone in every thrift store, church rummage sale and flea market you’ve ever been to.

Still my favorite Batman.

I’m not stressed, you are stressed!
