What Have We Done!

It may just be a case of denial or just not really paying attention(if you know me, you're money is on not paying attention), but I swear my wife did not have a noticable baby bump last week. And last night I see her in a t-shirt and a pair of jeans and it's like, BOOM! there's a pregnant tummy! Suddenly it occurred to me, we're having a freakin' baby! We are way past the point of no return here and whether we're ready or not, that little sucker is coming out in a few months and it is going to expect someone to take care of it. And last time I checked, we don't have a nanny on staff.

In related news, hindsight is still 20/20.

So, once I got past that(all the previous thoughts took about 0.8 secs to go through my head), you know what I realized? My wife is BEAUTIFUL when she is pregnant! This is one of the best things about having kids, being able to watch her grow and feel the baby in there and just experience the whole thing. We're having a baby and I am absolutely STOKED!

I love my life.

And seriously, my wife is the cutest pregnant woman you'll ever see, I definitely married-up a step or two.

Back To The Old Grind

It's always so hard to get back to work after a long weekend. Of course, since my "grind" consists of sitting in front of a computer all day and making numerous walks to the office kitchen for more coffee, I can't really complain too much.

We had an alright weekend, but there is still lots of sickness flowing through the household. I got sick last week and it turned into strep-throat so I'm just having my first good day today. Vicki fought it off til Saturday night and then got taken down in a big way by a sinus cold/headache/cough with a little fever thrown in for good measure. And she's so lucky, because being pregnant means she gets to use the cure-all medicine for everything that ails her, Tylenol! And if you're wondering, no, Tylenol does NOT relieve any of the symptoms I just mentioned. I'm so glad I'm a man.

The kids have done pretty well with only some runny noses, but the sickness sure limited what we could do over the weekend. Still, we spent time together and had some fun.

So, here I sit, trying to get some inspiration to write some amazing code that will change the world as you know it. Either that or it will run the station processors of our new battery analyzer, I haven't decided which way to go with it yet.

Hmm...I Wonder If These Cold Meats Are Still Good

Ya, they'll be fine.

That was my mental dialogue when I decided to make my lunch. And in the words of the old dude in the cave in the 3rd Indiana Jones movie,

"You chose...poorly"

I am hating life right now. I was woken up a few times between 3am and 5am by stomach cramps, and have been writhing in pain with cramps and diarrhea ever since. Ok, maybe that's a little over-dramatic, but seriously, this sucks ass.

So, if your cold meats were packaged 7 days ago but they still smell fine, throw them in the garbage, it's not worth it.

Oh, and Pepto-Bismol caplets are one of the best inventions science has every had.

Hmm...Is there anything worth posting about?

Ummm, not really. We're very close to completely settled in and unpacked. I love PVR. Vicki's finally starting to get a noticable tummy. Oh, Megan lost both her front teeth on Saturday, that was cool. She's fun to listen to now because she has trouble talking sometimes.

Pretty much, our life is boring, and I like it that way right now.
