We are officially within one week of Angie’s residency announcement. The anticipation is palpable. I should rename the title to Angie’s Countdown though, as the location has a bigger impact on her than me. I will just have to move, she will have to move and work at this new location. I have to admit, its kind of a crappy way to pick a job.
Nonetheless, the countdown is on. After the envelope is opened, we will finally have some clarity on what will happen for the remainder of 2009, and really the next four years for that matter. So all that is left is to sit back and enjoy easy/off time Angie has with us boys (Me, Will, Leo, and Hank).
If you are like me and like to drown out the sound of work, I highly recommend using Pandora.com. From a song, artist, genre, etc, you can build a “station” and enjoy new and different music all day long. I find it a nice change of pace from itunes which I swear picks the same songs all the time when it is on random.
Kart It Up
At some point I picked up a copy of Mario Kart for the Wii, thus justify owning a Wii (at least to me). The Wii Ski and Fit are nice, but Karting is where’s at, like two turntables and a microphone. I love looking forward to the CPU completely screwing me on the last lap of any 150CC race. I played online once for about 5 minutes and I doubt I will ever have the time to master the game like some of those guys. They can probably play Guitar Hero on expert too, who has time for this stuff?
Leo, the Lionheart
Leo has taken to watching the bird that hangs above his bouncy seat. He usually hangs out with me while I take my morning shower and I frequently check on him. For the most part, he kicks his legs and watches the bird sway back and forth. I know, not exciting at all, but it keeps his attention. I just got the report from Angie that Leo’s head size is in the 95th percentile. Imagine that, a kid of mine having a big head…
It occured to me, just this week, that when Angie starts residency I will have to get ready in the morning with both boys and likely have to start dinner with both boys, then there are the weekends… Yes, I kind of freaked a little bit. Sure Leo will be older, but I have fed him like two bottles. Even when I did that I almost forgot to burp him. Hopefully, it is like riding a bike. Hopefully…
Visitors from the South
Two of my sisters came up last weekend with my brother-in-law. It was a little hectic with two open houses, a showing, and 3 different nap schedules, but I think we managed to squeeze 5-10 minutes of fun in there. We fired up the grill, for the first time in who knows how long, and went to the Children’s Museum on Sunday so the boys could wear themselves out. I got exactly zero photos from the weekend. I know, I am really on top of things. It was fun to see Will interact with a younger cousin. I think he enjoys following his older cousins around (a lot) but this was the first time he got to really play with Evan. They took baths together and Will helped Evan pick up his water cup a few times. I am wondering if Will has put two and two together to realize Leo will be that big soon enough.
The Housing Market
Yes, it is still for sale. Lots of showings, some good feedback, 4 open houses, 0 offers. *fingers drumming*
That’s about all there is to say.
