September 2005 Archives

September 23, 2005

Yeah, I actually posted!

It's been a long time since I've updated this blog, as usual. It's not really because I have any lack of things to write about... It's really more of a case of apathy. I go through periods where I really don't feel like sharing my thoughts with the general public. I seem to be in one of those periods now. I'll try to shake it off, because really good things are happening in my life and there is no longer any reason not to record them here.


Major Thing:


Say hello to out little bean...



Yup. Lizzie is pregnant! We've just past the first trimester and everything seems to be just fine. We're really really happy! It's something that we've both wanted. Of course, along with the excitement comes a healthy dose of fear and anxiety. Parenthood is going to radically change nearly every aspect of our lives. That's okay. Change is good. We don't know yet whether we're having a boy or a girl, but we'll find out next month. I keep catching myself referring to the baby as a "he". Wishful thinking or premonition? Dunno. I'm pretty sure I'll be just as happy if it's a girl.


Other Things:


We spent last week on vacation in Texas, staying with our friends Sandy and Steve who have a really nice house on some ranch land. Sandy was an amazing host, driving us all over the state so that I could get the full Texas experience. We made it to Austin (the Texas History Museum, the bat bridge, Eric, cajun food, live music), Houston (NASA, Melanie, Gigi, tex-mex, Mai's), and San Antonio (the Alamo and the riverwalk). We also spent a lot of time just hanging out by the pool, drinking beertinis (except for preggo Lizzie), and just relaxing. It was really nice to see all of the places and many of the people that Liz has been telling me about for years.


On a similar note, as Hurricane Rita barrels towards many of the places that I just visited, my thoughts are definitely with all of our friends on the Gulf Coast. Please stay safe!


Work is busy, which is always a good thing. I'm still playing "catch-up" from my week away. One of my new personal goals for the workplace is to update the documentation for everything that I do, so that I can more easily hand off work to other people. Too much of what I do these days is based on info that may not exist anywhere but my head and my scattered notes. That needs to change ASAP.


I had a really good visit from my homeboy Rich last month. We roamed around Salem and the North Shore, partying like pirates, and discovering that it's almost impossible to steal a tall ship without a team of oxen to haul it down the pier... Yarr.

I spend way too much of my time playing World of Warcraft. For those not in the know, its a Massive Mutliplayer Online Roleplaying game. Highly addictive and tons of fun. Fortunately, my wife and many of my friends also have the same addiction, so the understand me when I say things like, "Dude, my NE Druid just ding'ed lvl 40! I'm catching a hyppo to Darnassus to buy myself a mount. Woot!"


I think that's enough for now.
