holy crap... sorry ... almost a full month

Almost a solid month has gone by and not even a new picture.  Sorry people.  So what has happened in this new family's life?  A lot... well, nothing major, just enough to keep me busy as all heck.

So, I'll try to go backwards... hmmm


Been biking alot lately to work.  With gas being $1.30/litre, it's easy to see the benefits, besides my 5 lbs lost (so far).  The stretch to work is one big long NORTH and then EAST... which is ok... coming home is WEST then SOUTH.  and typically the heavy winds have been coming from the SW.  So I have never been sweatier lately.  Good thing I buy those quick dry clothes.  Now with the heavy rainUmbrella, it's not been so easy, I've whmped out and drove.Auto


I realize what kinda guy I am lately... I'm a dad.  SO much so that I

a) don't mind the spit up and soaked shoulders from Dean hanging out on my arm so much (or the immense pain in my shoulder from just holding him for so long)

b) I 'accidentally sang along to one of those Baby Einstein songsNote.  Ick.  I put a random selection of music on a USB key for the car's mp3 player... and it picked one of those songs from dean's music.


Got a visit from Rob and Lindsay AND BEN!  It was great.  It really put Dean in to perspective.  Seeing Ben has made Dean jump in size.  Rob also dropped off the groomsmen gift for me, a marble decanter set from a market in Afghanistan.  It's wicked cool!


Let's see... My dad retired!  now he has golf clubs!  And driving my mom nuts!  At least he's now picked the car he wants to buy.  A Toyota Avalon.  He and Greg will drive to the border to pick it up.  It'll give Greg a chance to test out his new GPS!


Ah, to be retired and having fun with toys. now that i've got dean i guess i don't need any new toys... well, I still WANT new toys, just no time or $ for 'em.  Not that I'm complaining.  Being a dad has been awesome.  And Dean's an awesome son.  He's really getting interactive... babbling, smiling etc... just what the doctor ordered after a rough day.


Speaking of rough days.  So I found out how much I'll be losing when Rain comes back... it was a real kick in the pants.  Not only did I not know i would be losing anything, but to find out how much... ouch.  PLUS I found out that I did NOT make it to the pool hiring this year.  That's a real punch to the groin... 6 years of 'no problem' to 'sorry you're not good enough'.  You don't even want to know th erigamarole I went through to try to find out why... and even then it didn't even clarify.  ugh

well, enjoy the new pics of dean... i'll try to et some video going.
