Im thinking of dusting off the cobwebs of this blog again. I can ask if anyone here checks for new posts, but Im sure that doesnt happen. Maybe Ill just link it to FB or something. Anyway, there it is. Night!

Day 365

I had this vision for a grand, epic, earth-moving final post, but I was obviously fooling myself.

My wife and I were praying with friends of ours tonight, and it reminded me that it was never promised to me or my wife or anyone else that life would be easy. As I age, I get to know more and more people facing all the life circumstances that I never thought I'd see. I never wanted the "it'll never happen to me" bubble to be broken, but it was a while ago. And by "happen to me", I mean either myself, or friends and family going through stuff. Divorce, cancer, death, miscarriages, infertility, and a host of other things have shaken us and the people around us to the core.

Life isn't all bad, though. Challenging, yes, but not all bad.

I don't know where I'm going with all that. Just some thoughts.

Thanks for reading, everyone. It has been a slice. I'm sure I'll drop in from time to time and update you on what's going on.

Love you all. Thanks again.

Take care.

Day 364

I had class this morning, and it went by quite fast. This is interesting, considering that it is a class about death and terminal illness. Maybe it's the professor. Maybe it's my interest in the class material. From time to time I think about working in palliative care. Who knows where life will take me.

I bought a family gym pass yesterday. My wife wanted to do aquarobics. I want to start doing weights and cardio. We'll do that at the gym until the spring, when our baby comes, then we'll probably cancel.

I can't believe tomorrow it's all over. I'm not actually sure it worked out to be 365 days exactly tomorrow, but I tried my best. I know there were cheat days from time to time, and nearing the end I had some trouble getting posts in on time, but the end is here tomorrow. Crazy.

I don't have much to say, really. That's partially why I am glad I am finished the everyday posts. I am depleted, or so it feels. No more opinions. Ha.

Take care, everyone. Love you all.

Day 363

It was a pretty good day, but nothing out of the ordinary. I worked, which was good, brcause I work with some fun people. The more I work there, the more I get to know the staff, which is nice.
My wife is growing week by week. Now the baby starts growing quite a bit, and my wife as well. She makes a beautiful pregnant woman.
Take care, all. Love you.

Day 362

Pretty uneventful day. Worked, and then went to a movie. Saw we bought a zoo. It was good.

My wife and I are hitting the gym wednesday evening. She is going swimming with a friend and I am going to do some cardio and some weights. Should be okay.

Thats it for now. Take care.

Day 361

I have been feeling the baby move a lot more lately. It comes in cute little bumps against my wifes belly. I get so excited when I finally feel it. I feel so lucky to get to experience that so closely. I cant imagine what the experience of having a life move around inside of you must be like. I love talking to my wife about it, or when she  talks about how she is moving around. Everytime she moves around, my wife tells me and shows me where abouts to feel.

I absolutely cant wait to see my wife mother a child. She has a quiet strength, and so much live and tenderness to offer. She will be a good role model, and a great example of someone who doesn quit when the going gets tough. Hell, she has been that role model for me. She may come across as gentle and quiet and timid at times, but when it comes to it, she is a quiet warrior.

I suppose I should say now, because I need to start wrapping up, thanks so so much to you, for reading this blog day after day, or at least on a regular basis. Thank you for celebrating with me, or mourning with me, or crying with me, or whatever else we experienced. It has been an interesting year, to say the least. I am sorry this blog.wasnt a lot of things. I had many ideas, but it mostly just ended up being my life. I think my idea(s) may come in a different blog. Im not sure what I am going to do wih this one yet. I may burn it, or I may keep it. We'll see.

Finally getting internet back this week. It will be very nice to have that back.

Day 360

I think we all need to be careful about how we treat others because of our own baggage. It isnt anyone elses fault. Sometimes really crappy things happen for no reason. Trust me, I have a LOT of empathy to dole out. A LOT. But you, AND me, need to get better, not bitter. Who am I talking to? Everyone who needs to hear it, including me.
Love you all. Take care.
