Forgive me bloggers, for I have sinned. Time is really beginning to tick away for us. Tuesday marked the beginning of week 30 of my wife’s pregnancy. We’re less than two weeks away from the big baby shower. This means a bit of stress as we’ll be hosting my wife’s mom and her friend at our place that weekend. I’ve got many small house projects which would be nice to get done before their arrival. Oh yeah, we’ve got to stop peeking at the damn baby registry to see what folks have bought, but it’s just too much fun not to. Are there any other opportunities to register for stuff after you have your first child? Is there a death or divorce shower?
Speaking of registries, I still have grand dreams of a virtual baby shower. See our baby shower doesn’t include the dudes. Not that I don’t want to participate, but we we’re not the one’s hosting the event so we had to keep a handle on the number of invitees. Thus the reason for the virtual baby shower and it’s so wonderful to be happy.
Yeah, in non-baby news… we showed our Swedish relatives around town Sunday, Monday, and this morning. I think they enjoyed the city of Seattle, yet there’s way too much to see in only two full days. Monday we took them to the Red Hook Brewery and got a bit buzzed during the brewery tour. One dollar allows you to sample five beers and pocket a nifty souvenir taster glass. After that we crossed the street and visited the Chateau Ste Michelle winery, foregoing the tour this time. We tasted some yummy Copper River salmon their first night here and I made sure to force down a few cups of Starbucks coffee. Huh, have I mentioned enough brands/companies yet?
It was really nice to chat with our relatives. They have a daughter who is our age and she just happens to have a daughter. So we made some great connections and they arrived with some really cute baby clothes. Crap, no baby talk. Right, today we took the visitors to the famous Pike Place Market for a couple hours. It’s a fun place to people watch while taking in the sights and sounds of Seattle. The weather cooperated big time and was a picture perfect 80 degrees on Tuesday.
Well would you look at the time? I best get to bed since it is 2:30am. This four day weekend with naps has really thrown my sleeping schedule for a loop. Well, I do have to work tomorrow so I best hit the sack. Someday, don’t let me forget to tell you my “sleepy work productivity” theory. It’s a hoot no doubt.
