I thought I would go play The Sims 3 today during W’s nap. I’ve owned it for months and have literally not played it yet. So I got W to bed, got the game going… Except there were two updates and one patch to download.
I did not get to play.
Today, William has been out as long as he was in. He has 3 1/2 teeth. He cruises along furniture and occasionally stands for a few seconds unsupported. He says mama, dad, and hi. He fed himself a Puff yesterday, and finally chews his food. He likes the Bubble Guppies song. He waves, squints, and sticks out his tongue to mirror others. He has long conversations with other people and his toys. He’s friendly to almost everyone. He sleeps through the night and naps well.
He’s a sweet, perfect little boy. He’s growing up so fast.
I’m planning his first birthday party already. In a few years, I know I’ll think this went so fast. And it is.
I’m really good at it. You’d be surprised the things that are either public record or easily Googled.
I was house hunting tonight in a city where I used to live. For fun, I checked out the nearby listings and Street View for a former friend’s neighborhood. Odd vehicles were in the driveway. I know people buy new cars, but these were out of character. Come to find out on the county GIS and court records that they divorced last year. And a RO was filed. And she got the house. And he had a shitstorm of court dates afterward. I found his info and saw he didn’t go to jail or anything. So the court dates had to be civil… But the two that I needed to see were in counties that charged to access the record. Not even poor counties! (I’m looking at you, King Co. WA.)
Anyway, my stalking provided more questions than answers. But hours of entertainment.
1. Former friends. They deserve my shadenfreude.
2. If you create a LinkedIn to view someone’s profile, lock it down before you stalk. I wasn’t as covert as I would have liked.
3. Property records are a great place to start if you want to get stalk-y.
