When’s That Baby Due?

A Day in the LifeLeave a Comment

Last Saturday was Mom’s first due date before it was changed to May 3rd.  We are all getting anxious…or maybe frustrated.  We are ready to go.  Its like having a major event but you do not know when its going to occur — but when it does a huge set of events go into motion.  We have done the major spring cleaning of the house and now things are getting dirty again.  Grandma is calling everyday asking Mom how she is.  Mom does not like this.  Mom is fine and does not want to be asked constantly.  Our neighbors are asking because they have a baby $$$ pool riding on the date so they call until their day comes and then they are mad when its not born yet.  Do we get the cash if they are all wrong?

Tomorrow night is the next and final installment in the educational series — breastfeeding 101.  Three hours of talking about boobs.  Normally, that might get one excited but at this point – its just painful.  But lucky for me, the coaches (as we are known these days) are highly encouraged to come to the class so we can help Mom when she gets frustrated trying to feed the child.  So another night away from 24, go TiVo.

Nobody has posted comments lately on the pictures I posted.  Maybe I will stop…hint hint.

Cool Newsgroup Feature

On the Orion web site, I run a bulletin board program called UBB.  They just added in a new feature called Content Islands.  This is a way to create streams of customized information.  The publish as HTML or even as RSS so you can subscribe to the feed in Radio.  Totally cool.  Everything is coming together.  Now on the Orion home page, I linked in the news so that we effectively get blogging on the Orion home page through the newsgroup.  I tried doing it in Radio but it was to hard to integrate with the FrontPage based site.  Very happy.

Fun

Got to attend my first zoning hearing today for the church mega-plex they are planning to build 150 feet from my house. Our neighborhood group did a great job of rallying support and made a pretty convincing argument about why this should not be approved.  They mainly focused on a law that says the buildings have to be compatible with the surroundings and the size of these buildings are not.  Our group’s leader used produce to illustrate the point – lime vs. watermelon.  The other odd thing is how these churches get away with doing things all “tax free”.  They bought the land tax free with money from collections that is tax free.  They are then going to sell off parts of the land tax free to commerical entities to pay for their development.  Its very strange.  During the arguments, they said that if you have an “organized set of beliefs” within a  group of people, you meet the definition of a religous group.  I think I am going to start my own religion around here — do pets count as the congregation?  The church of bfuller.  The vote is on May 7th.

Light moment of the day — I was dealing with a sales rep today over e-mail and thanked them for their support and they guys responds: “We realize the importance of giving a good first impression to lure you in, and then we lapse into mediocre service, making you long for the comparatively short wait at the DMV. (Just kidding)”

In other completely dissapointing news, Patrick Roy seems to have failed me again.  The Avs didn’t play well tonight but they stayed in there.  Then in the Game 7 OT (my fingernails are gone at this point), the Avs miss shot on shot — but they stay on offense.  Then the first breakaway the Wild get they freakin’ score.  How lame is that?  Somebody needs to stick a sock in Patrick’s 5-hole because in the years I have watched the Avs after moving to Colorado, the guys seems to be the weakest link.  Especially, because the goalies on the other teams always step up and have games of their lives.  Whatever.  Back to NASCAR this weekend in Fontana.

24: Of course Jack Bauer came back to life — he is Jack.  Jack always comes back.  I was very excited — NOT — to see previews showing Jack’s daughther returning.  Can’t somebody shoot her already?
