Dreamweaver Dark Code View Theme

As a Web Developer, I'm usually sitting in front of the computer for many hours at a time during the day. My eyes get tired after awhile, especially when I'm looking at lines and lines of code on a screen with a white background.

Dreamweaver CS4 is my go-to code editor because it has so many great features. It even allows customization of the code viewing environment, which I had played around with in the padt.

I was really happy when I found this great post on how to setup a dark code view theme in Dreamweaver.

Signed Up For My First 5K - Run Lucky 5K

I registered for the Run Lucky 5K today. My first official race! I'm pretty excited about it.

My wife finally got me into running and I'm starting to enjoy it a lot more. I do most of my running on the treadmill, but I do get outside every now and then to run with my wife.

The race is Sunday, March 11th at 2PM.

My DIY Business Cards for TJ Technology Professionals

I designed my own business cards today for my IT business, TJ Technology Professionals. After I finished the design, I uploaded it to the Staples website and had them create me 100 cards for $15.

e, I found myself saying, "Wow, that really was easy."

Now That I'm a SAHD (Stay-At-Home-Dad)...The Power of Being Present

Judging from a lot of online discussions that I have read, it appears that there is still a novelty effect when it comes to dads staying home and being the primary caregiver for the kid(s) and taking care of the house. At the same time, I am seeing more Stay-At-Home-Dads (like myself) becoming more of a presence online.

I've been a SAHD for just over a year now and I have learned a lot about the role, but mostly, I've learned alot about myself. Before choosing to be a SAHD last year, I never really gave the topic any thought. Since then, I think about being a SAHD everyday.

The greatest challenges I encounter are internal. I'm talking about the unexpected feelings and thoughts that pop up in certain situations when I'm interacting with my daughter. It's learning that I'm not exactly who I thought I was that has given me the biggest "WOW" moments.

Overall, this opportunity to be so actively involved in my daughter's life has been great! I think about the fact that I get to actively, intentionally, purposefully guide my daughter on a day-to-day basis and I'm grateful. At the same time, I pray that I am demonstrating some qualities that positively impact her character development.

Now, I find myself thinking about my childhood often, especially the interaction I had with my dad, who was a SAHD before the acronym and all this hooplah. My opinions regarding SAHDs is heavily influenced by my experiences with my dad. My choice to stay at home was pretty easy because my dad was a model for me in this role. But it is the power of my dad's presence that makes me say that this is what I must do for my daughter.
