Yes I've been neglectful of you my Blog, I'm Sorry


Ok, I've been spending the last couple of weeks on about.com taking these courses on writing that I singed up for almost 2 years ago but never went through, so now that I may get a little time off I want to start studying up so that maybe I can get some short stories written and published in journals. I'll try. But, more important NEWS. The mother is getting along fine right now. We did have some due date flip flop issues which just made the WHOLE wait game worse. Everyone says be patient, and for the most part I really believe we are, but when ALL you want is that little one in your arms, in your home, with you, for you to love, to protect to shower and spoil with all the things you possibly can (before they become teenagers and bankrupt you) it's HARD. Everyone gets upset because I have not gotten all excited and out of control yet but it is because until she's in our home, not there waiting to cross state lines, or driving, not till she is in HER home, will I be happy. I mean I know, I KNOW when I hold her my heart will just melt away, I'll succumb to being the Dad that spoils, I spoil the nieces and nephews, so why not. But yes, it's still difficult to sit and wait. Last couple of weeks we noticed we were doing a bunch of nervous cleaning and we read somewhere this weekend that a lot of expecting mothers do that, that was pretty funny. Now to get back to cleaning up, yes We are cleaning again, just in case she calls in the next couple of days before our usual weekend cleaning. I think Bobby is going to finally win a battle, he wanted to get a cleaning service after she was born and I thought what a waste, buuuuttttt maybe for a little while.
