I like keeping a personal blog, if only to remind myself of what I’ve been up to. I keep pretty organized about it, and actually even have a list of things to write about. The last time I wrote was the end of March. My silence hasn’t signified nothing going on, actually the opposite.
They say the three most stressful things in a man’s life are:
- Starting a new job
- Having your first child
I’ve been doing that. My new job at Thrillworks is a blast! It’s very challenging, and I’ve been learning a lot. I get to work with a pretty great team.
The new house in Burlington is wonderful. I’m thankful that my in-laws put us up and were so good to us. I like the shock value of telling people I lived with my wife’s folks for over six months. Reactions are usually pretty great; but in reality I don’t think there are two people who could have been easier to live with. Living on our own again has been great; it’s strange but the thing I missed the most was cleaning my own house. Sick, I know.
We are now six weeks away from having our little bundle of joy. Kristi’s enormous! She’s constantly hungry, tired and uncomfortable. It’s adorable. This week was the first time my daughter kicked me in the face. I don’t expect it will be the last.
All this to say life has been way busier than it’s ever been, but it’s pretty amazing. At the end of the day I’m less inclined to work on the computer on my own stuff! I’m guessing this will be the year of blogging less.
