Apple Blog Gone

Okay, my new blog is done for at our family site. Basically Apple doesn't allow some aspects of the blog (for example, comments) unless it is done via a .Mac account. I find the .Mac account pricey, so I went through my own host.

My new blog is now at WordPress.

You can find it here

See you there.

First Ball Game- A Snoozer

Well, this is how busy my life has become. Myles and I watched our first Dodger game together last Sunday afternoon. The Angels beat us up real good, and Myles responded by sleeping through the entire game. He didn't miss much, and I can only hope he doesn't give up on the boys in blue too soon.

Completely amazing, crazy busy, absolutely wonderful...all that was important before has forever been changed, and I love it.

Rock Band

So, I got a nice rebate gift card from Best-Buy a while back, and I used it to purchase Rock Band. The game is awesome, and I definitely need to use it more in a group atmosphere, but I have really enjoyed the drumming part even as a solo tour. I played drums for about 4 years in jr high/high school, and it is pretty close to exactly the skills you would need to play. But, I have come across the song from hell. "green grass and high tides" is now the hardest song I have played. I am still on the medium difficulty, but I have passed a few on hard. But, this song has two different tempos that head up to double time, and there is a point in the song where I tend to lose it. I wouldn't mind so much, if the song wasn't freaking 10 minutes long. I always get to the 7 minute mark and lose it. Ahhhhhhhhhhh. I have progressed to 62%, 65%, and now up to 82% completion, and I just know if I can make it past the hard part, the last section of the song should be smooth sailing. The problem is that once I fail the song, I am not in the mood for another 7 minutes of failure.

Emotional Rollercoaster

It is funny to look back on this whole pregnancy process and to see the different stages of emotions we have gone through. At first it was fear and a bit of grieving for the lifestyle we were leaving behind. This is not to say we didn't want the baby, but it is just being honest with the first feelings I at least had in my mind. We were originally planning on waiting another 2 years, but you know what happens when you plan too much in life.

Then we moved on to the relative excitement with a lot of fear. How can this possibly work? Can we still live in this area? How will we take care of him?

Finally, we crossed the point this weekend where we are ready for the guy to get here. I can't wait to hold him in my arms, read to him, play with him, and eventually talk with him. I am looking forward to the "new normal" in our lives. It is strange to think that within two weeks we will experience something that will completely change us forever, but it still feels so surreal and distant. Yep, I know that pretty soon I will be changing diapers, feeding, and waking up at all hours...but I am not quite there mentally. I guess this is what people talk about when they say you are never completely ready to be a parent. All we can be is ready to surrender our plans and ideas of how we can control the situation to our loving and faithful God.
