The last few moments...

of our life as we know it. The baby is coming soon and I am trying to enjoy everything I can before then. Leaving the house on a moments notice, NOT changing diapers, and most importantly, sleeping through the night. Oh how the sleep deprivation is going to suck.

So, we organized all the baby clothes on the weekend. It's so strange how we could be surrounded by 5 bins of clothes ranging from newborn to 3+years, and it still seems like we're short on clothes for certain things. Of course, then we realized that if this baby is a boy the 5 bins of clothes we have instantly becomes 2-3 items. Seriously. Screwed if it's a boy.

We have Vicki's friend Jill staying with us this week and I'm really looking forward to it. Vicki can really use some help and some adult interaction during the day right now, and Jill has decided to take on that role (i wonder is she knows that yet).

On Saturday, Vicki and I will have our last date night before the Almighty Sleep Depriver arrives. We are going to see The Phantom of the Opera which is something that her and I have been waiting to do since 1993, literally. We both saw it separately then when it was in Vancouver and we both loved it. Ever since, we have been waiting patiently for it to return so we could see it together and now we will. A nice dinner and night at the theatre. Wow, it's going to kick some ass.

That's all for now.

Peace Out!

This is worth listening to

I don't usually post links to funny things, mostly because I'm too lazy and there are so many great things on the net everyday, how do you choose what's worth posting?

THIS, is worth posting. Have a listen, and enjoy!

Currently I am trying to debug a subroutine that is supposed to erase and reprogram the flash of a PIC microcontroller. It's not working. Currently, I don't really care, all I care about is getting more coffee.

Enjoy it while you can...

That is my motto currently. It may sound strange but I'm still having trouble truly grasping the fact that we're going to have a new baby in the next 4-6 weeks. Wow, I sure hope this was a good idea...

Anyway, I am trying my best to really enjoy everything in our life as it is now, before it all changes again forever. Don't get me wrong, this change is going to be nothing but fantastic, but it will be a change nonetheless. I don't want to take anything for granted in these final weeks. I want to enjoy telling Megan and Kayla to go play and stop bugging me. I want to get up and leave the house and the drop of a hat, and I want to cherish every night that I go to sleep confidently knowing that the only thing that will wake me up is my alarm clock. (or my wife if the mood strikes her. Hey, a man can dream)

But most of all, I want to properly enjoy the final weeks of Vicki pregnant. I love it when she's pregnant. I can't describe just how beautiful she is when she's pregnant, with her round little belly and her cute little waddle. I love it. And I want to make sure that I make her feel like the most important person in the world, because she is. If my wife ever deserved to be treated like a princess, it is now more than ever.

Ok, enough gushing. I also want to drive some fast cars, watch some action movies, and drink some beer.

4-6 weeks. Wow. It's going to be interesting.

My Official Prediction

The newest Rogall is going to be a boy. That is my official prediction. And I think he will be born on August 18, weighing in at 6lbs 11ozs.

Nothing else to report really. We're still working around the house getting all things ready for his arrival and trying to truly appreciate this last bit of time with only two kids.

Vicki is looking absolutely gorgeous. I don't think she's ever looked more beautiful than she does right now, it's ridiculous.

In other news, our friend Jeremy, our single, no kids, no responsibilities friend Jeremy, just bought a new car. A 2006 Civic Si. Jer, you suck. On the bright side, it is nice to have someone to live vicariously through.

The next 6ish weeks are going to be busy and fun and I am promising myself to enjoy every wink of sleep I get.
