A Whole Bunch of Updates

Updates on Birthdays

It has been Gemini birthday time for the past few weeks. Half the family (including extended family) are Geminis. As a Sagittarius, I am incredibly outnumbered.

Updates on Father’s Day

The kids and I spent the day chillin in the basement playing SNES. Then we had pizza for dinner. MDL gave me a really nice lime cologne. I managed to spill it all over myself and smelled like the most fabulous old man for days. Good times. (Good limes?)

BCat wanted to buy a Darth Vader Father’s Day card for BDad. Do the card companies know that Darth Vader is a bad guy who killed his wife, abandoned his children, and later cut off his son’s hand in a lightsaber fight?

BCat knows. BCat has a sick sense of humor sometimes.

Updates on My Garden

While there are no tomatoes yet, the tomato plants are looking amazing. They’re in giant pots and I’ve been taking them inside during the rain storms so they don’t get uprooted. There are three carrots in a pot which have survived. Everything I planted in the ground is dead. Good thing we’re signed up for a CSA in the summer. We have lots of potted herbs, though.

Updates on This Blog

I changed the look of the blog, it matches the look of my twitter and facebook better now. That was a serious pain in the ass.

Updates on the Baby

The baby is doing just fine. We picked a name for her, so from now on I will refer to her here as MJ (not drug or Spiderman related!). She is upside down, very active, and constantly hiccuping, so she’s pretty normal. MDL is having some Braxton-Hicks contractions, so that sucks, but is also normal.

We have a tour of the hospital and a new sibling class scheduled. Our hospital bags are packed and ready to go.

We had an amazing dinosaur-pirate baby shower, thank you to everyone who came, and thank you to my sister for organizing everything. We now have everything we need.

This is really happening.
