Also,CONGRATS HOTLIPS! and Skye, read the paragraph below and really think about giving me a call...
Let me share something with you UIM. Until my cancer came along I was always keeping my grief to myself, always trying to keep people from worrying or getting annoyed with me while still trying to be there for them and what I discovered was that all I accomplished was many years going by and never being as close to my friends as I wished I was. All the time I thought I was cementing friendships by not 'burdening' my friends, I was in actuality, keeping those friendships shallow by not allowing the people I care about to be there for me. Now I do feel very close to you and I think it's largely because I identify with you so much or at least I feel that I do, but I need you to know that even if you called at the "Worst" time, I would be grateful that you thought of me at all and I would feel even closer to you. If there is one thing I've learned from my friends and my wonderful wife, it's that I don't need to entertain my friends constantly or give them things to make them like me, but I do need to share my whole self with them if I want them to love me as close friends do.

Angel Feathers

Thub schnub thub schnub thub schnub...

scurrying across the floor

Little padded feet, hurry through the door

Disrupted blissful slumber

By the weight dropped on my chest

As pleas ring out for me to rise

Despite my weak protest

Scooped upon my shoulders

I lumber down the stair

Babe gleefully convulsing

I know we're almost there

What a suprise was waiting

Most of it on the floor

The breakfast that was made for me

Only a parent could adore

I shower hugs and kisses

On my thoughtful little one

Then make a game of cleaning

We both enjoy the fun.

If I can have one wish

Or clairvoyant future sight

is that in about 4 years

(I think that this sounds right?)

My baby would grow in health

And equally in love

And give me such a present

The one I'm dreaming of

And when we finished cleaning

and all the fun was through

We'd make that mess all over again

So mommy'd get a present too...

Looking forward to your arrival little one

I love you...

Skye, if you want, give me a call and I'll set you up with a modem. There are also a couple of "free" dial-up services I can point you to.

Logi - Welcome back! Sorry for your loss, but Congradulations on your grades, that is an amazingly hard course and 79 is an awsome grade!

Happa - Good luck on your tests, I can't wait to see those newborn pictures when the time comes!

Hello everybody!!!

I have pulled my head out of my computer long enough to poke my head back into my computer to post to you guys!

They finally broke ground on our house!!! Only 53 short weeks after we went to contract... but hey good news it is!

Alicia is due to have the baby in about 8 weeks now. I absolutely cannot wait!!!

So far the date/time/place of the baby shower is still a mystery to Alicia. Hopefully I can keep it that way... (Cat, we both thought of you, the only reason I didn't send an invitation is that you are several states away, but in our hearts you are here!)

I'll try to post the pictures of our new hole in the ground soon, hopefully there will be some new sonogram pics comming too, at almost 32 weeks, they should be awsome, but they may also reveal a little 'too much'. I don't know whether that would be good or bad because this whole "Let's not find out the baby's sex until birth thing is starting to wear me thing, I am dying to know every bit as much as I know the surprise would be nice. GRRRRrrrrr......

I'm sorry I haven't read everyone's blogs lately, but I'll get "back on the pot" shortly!

Miss you all!
as always...
