I totally want to get the hell out of here!

What am I rushing for? I've already been informed that I am going to be on baby duty as soon as I get home. :( Though, as someone so aptly put it, it could be raining flaming poodles but it beats working...

Guess what? You guys will, from this point on, be spared all my blather about painting minis and making terrain. I have decided to make a blogger account that I'm also using as a project log. I blather about things and put up pics and all that good stuff though I kinda wonder why I blather since I'm just using it as a log. Oh, well. On the off chance you're mental in the brain pan and actually are interested, it's here. Otherwise, I expect you all to skip it and for good reason.

Guess what else? Last night, I cut my finger real good. And by "good", I mean bad. On the other hand, it no longer hurts and i can actually use it to type again as long as I don't mash it too hard so I'm probably alright. Hopefully i can leverage some more synergy this weekend despite my battle wound.

How is Welsh Girl? Well, I think she feels a bit overwhelmed. I think she expected to get more done at home during the day while caring for the Despoina. Unfortunately, it creates a vicious cycle because when she doesn't get things done, she gets depressed, making her less likely to get things done, wash rinse, repeat. This is hardly new info for many of you or terribly out of the ordinary for people in general. But it can get annoying as hell for me sometimes. Meh.

The Despoina continues to thrive. Her sleeping through the night has been a big help for both of us. On the other hand, she's always so needy. She wants to be fed, she wants to be changed, she wants to be held... When is she going to go out and get a job?

I kinda feel bad for Farrah Fawcett. She goes through all this trouble to remind us she exists and prep us all for her death and the day she croaks, Jacko also kicks the bucket, upstaging her. She's kinda like Aldous Huxley and C.S. Lewis. Did you know they both died on the same day? Probably not because they had the bad luck to die on November 22, 1963, the day Kennedy was shot. No retrospectives on the news for them, I bet.

Our Netflix account is going down to two movies, one for her and one for me. For a year or so, we were watching movies like they were going out of style. Then we just stopped. Probably around the time of the wedding. We kinda rebooted our watching recently but it died down again. We're just not feeling movies lately. Hell, we can't even bring ourselves to see movies we're excited about these days. And now we have a kid so there's an extra layer of planning over that, too. Meh...

I'm kinda feeling screwed about our sun porch. One of the reasons I went for our current place is because the sun porch would make a great game room. Except it doesn't because in the winter, it's too cold and needs space heaters I don't want to buy. On days like today, well, you don't really want to be out there for more than 15 minutes when it's 105 outside. No amount of shade can do much about that... :(

Oh, yeah, we're having a 4th of July soiree and you're all invited! I'm even going to make a few of my famous apple pies!

So anyway, it's getting close to the end. Guess I'll post this fucker and start getting ready to roll out.

That, blessed be the Maker, is all. That

stacky and i count on 50% efficiency by clock (4.00 / 2) #1 Fri Jun 26, 2009 at 08:59:50 PM EST
add a child to the mix and you will always be running at 50% with two people around.  that's because, as you know, caring for a wee beastie is a cubic fuckload of work.  if it isn't reducing your ability to get shit done, you're likely doing it wrong.

all our best to you and your lovely wife.  it gets better every day, but expectations need to be just right.

rock the fuck on!

 I had all these plans for when I was home with the baby.

Ha. ha. ha.

It's a very common issue.

Two makes one look like a weekend in the Hamptons.
