2 Weeks And Counting

Posted in Nonsense, Tori with tags , , , on February 28, 2012 by Bob

We are around the two week mark. It is actually about 17 days or so. I am not counting down to St. Patrick’s Day. I am counting down to the arrival of Tori’s baby brother. If you haven’t noticed, I haven’t been around much lately. We have been doing a lot of last minute prep and we have all collectively been fighting colds and tiredness. I think overall Tori has been the healthiest the last few weeks up until this week. Last night she spiked a fever of 103. It went down but it is back. Poor little bug. She is having a rough time breaking it. This is her first real “sick” with fever this long. I have been spoiling her a lot lately and since she is a smart baby, I think she is deliberately keeping her fever up so that daddy spoils her more than I usually would.

I went off track. 2 weeks until the new arrival. I am already exhausted. Mrs. Voices is exhausted, and she should be. We think we are at a place though where the baby can come and we would be ready. Tori is moved into her new room and I just have a load of laundry or two left for the bassinet and what not for the little guy. What we still aren’t done with yet, is picking a name. We are getting closer though. We are finally starting to come together on some names. We are not going to have any of the names I really want but, I guess that is ok. Is it acceptable to wait until he can talk and just let him pick his own name? That might be even worse.

Hmm. I am really at a loss for what I was going to write about next. Well, just want to let you know I am all still here and just be ready for exciting news to come soon. No, it won’t be that I got a new job paying me millions of dollars. If I ever do have millions of dollars, just remember, I will not forget all my loyal readers and I will send you all at least a dollar. Generous ain’t I?


Hanging In There

This weekend has been rough. Been fighting a fever that has been coming and going. I tried to get some stuff done around the house. I got a few things done, but then I got too worn down. Tori is still sick. It isn’t affecting her that much but, let’s just say it is affecting us when it is diaper time.

I am watching Iron Chef Halloween. The secret ingredient is Halloween candy. I find it amusing that they have to come up with generic names for everything. Peanut butter crunch candy covered in chocolate, sugar powder candy in a paper straw, etc. There were some real weird dishes. The strangest part of the night was the judges. Kathy Griffin, Donatella Arpaia and Kelly Rippa. Jackie and I (mostly Jackie) thinks Donatella lost a bet.

I’m freezing. I am going to bed.
