1/4/11 12:10 am - Calendar year 2011 post
So, I er haven't updated much lately. I guess that's been apparent. I mostly lurk and read posts about everyone else feeling guilty that they haven't updated much lately either, and check daily because my friends page is where all of my comic RSS feeds go.
I'm going to be a father soon. Signs (well, ultrasound images) point to us having a baby girl late April / early May. We've started a baby registry at Amazon, to make online ordering easy.
This is the last day of my long Florida vacation. We flew to Miami on Dec 10th, had a week long western Caribbean cruise, spent a week in Orlando going to Universal and Sea world, then crystalinentity left to spend Christmas with her parents while I spent Christmas with my mom and stepfather in their new Florida condo. It's been a good time, but I miss my wife and the pets, and need to get back to work I guess.
This year, there will be two priorities: saving for a down payment on a house (for 2013 maybe?), and figuring out the parenting thing. It'll be quite the adventure.
Work's been going well. I might have an intern this summer, and if the stars align correctly, I can try and get promoted this fall. That'll be pretty cool. In the meantime, I have lots of interesting things I can work on, and I seem to be valued by my coworkers. As long as I remember to take vacation more than once a year, things look good.
Now, back to packing.
