So here we are, it’s time for the baby to come. At the very least we can say that it will be this month! We have a lot of people who for some weird reason want us to force the baby out now. I am not sure if this is just a human nature thing but what happened to nature taking it’s course. Being our baby, I am sure she will be right on schedule, ready to go just like her on-time and organized parents.

We spent last night admiring the ENORMOUS deck that is taking shape in the back yard and putting together a vibrating baby chair. It seems that these baby items are as much a challenge to fathers as they are entertainment to the babies. Either way, once she does arrive she will have everything she needs which is probably about 3 times what we will actually use!

So it is June, time for me to stop whining about my lack of exercise and start back in with P90X and Insanity. I have rested long enough, my back is fine and I am starting to feel slovenly which usually happens when I get a little squidgy around the edges. I was scoping out the deck last night trying to imagine a place for the chinup bar and an area to hang some tools to get them out of the garage. Once the upper deck is done I can start designing and building the lower deck however I think it may take longer than I anticipate. Seeing what the upper deck has gone through being built I am pretty sure that so far I have underestimated the complexity of the project. However, I will have 3 weeks off to do it so I am sure I will manage.

The official announcement for the England World Cup team is happening today, and I find it coincidental that our daughter is scheduled to be born on day 1 of the World Cup. Maybe it is a sign that it is England’s year?! Maybe we should call her Fifa!

Speaking of names, we still haven’t decided however the more people we speak to, the more we find people who decided and then changed their mind at the last minute. Plenty of the kids at gym have names that are completely different that the names their parents had picked, even those who had been calling the belly the name they wanted… I wonder what makes people change their minds so drastically once the baby arrives.

Since Nicole has been off work (both days now) I have neglected to make my lunch, so today we are going to a cheap and (apparently) tasty sushi Restaurant for take out. It’s called Sam Jung Japanese Restaurant and I will let you know how it is. It is very weird not having Nicole here, every time I walk past her desk I do a double take seeing Amy there. It’s a consolation knowing that we will have 3 weeks together at home pretty soon but still, work sucks without her.

*Sam Jung was good, very quick, extremely good quality and pretty good price. I will definitely go again!
