Story behind the title

The thought occurred to me that I should probably explain how my blog got it’s title. Last year my brother-in-law needed someone to take over one of the teams in his fantasy football league. I agreed to take over control and play the season as the owner of the team.

 

After several tries, I finally came up with a name for my team. Since it was my rookie season and I really didn’t know what to do or how things worked, I named my team the “Driveling Idiots”. Judging by my record last season and thus far this season, I chose a good name. So, the title of this blog is an extension of that since I really don’t have any experience running a blog of my own (just reading what other people have written).

Working vacation comes to an end

As I mentioned when I started this blog, I’ve taken a new job that requires me to travel to a client’s site each week and am currently working on a project outside Washington, DC. For the last 2 weeks, my wife and 3 kids have been here with me.

 

My wife homeschools our twin 9-year-old daughters (and most likely will our son, but at 7 months old, he’s not a very good student right now). Homeschooling not only gives grat flexibility in when you do school, but also WHERE you do school. So for the last two weeks, their “schoolhouse” has been relocated up here. As you can imagine, the Washington, DC area is a gold mine in terms of things to see and do and the girls have had an absolute blast going to all the different museums, monuments and attractions around DC. Even the ride on the Metro (subway) here was a treat for them.
