This weekend was pretty busy!   My wife wants to spell out the name of our soon to be son (34 days to go!) on the wall in his room.  The only challenge was that the letters she wants to use are at Pottery Barn Kids, the closest one is an hour and half away.  Soooo Saturday morning we drove to Princeton, NJ and picked them up.  She had a gift certificate that the store said could only be used in the store and not on the Internet or over the phone.

We got back home and had some lunch and then we started to sort through all the stuff from the baby shower.  Man what a lot of stuff!  Sunday the wife went out for the day with her parents and I stayed home.  I finished putting together the rest of the stuff from the know..strollers...basinet...swing...etc all that is left now are the toys!  We also have to start to wash the clothes he will be wearing.  Oh and I put the letters up too!

I cannot believe how fast this is going.  It seems like it was just yesterday that we found out we are having our first child.  I simply cannot wait for my “sidekick” to arrive.  Last night I was talking to him and saying “pretty soon..pretty soon”

I am into NASCAR in a big way.  While watching the race yesterday I had visions of my son sitting next to me on the couch in his Tony Stewart #20 Home Depot racing gear.  Again..I cannot wait.

You think I would be busy with this stuff that I wouldn't have the time / desire to code.  But, I must code.  It's an addiction.  I am planning out a program to be used as an extension to IE.  Nothing fancy just an excuse to code.  Once I get the details the way I want  I will share.  I know that the program probably already exists someplace...but I don't care...I need to code.   With all my different responsibilities here at the office I don't have many coding projects these days and I am going through withdrawal...again...I need to code.

Congrats on what will be the best thing that will ever happen to you. You think you have time issues now, just wait. You better get that little project finished because when Jr arrives, time will become a thing of the past. My son is 6 and it's still a struggle to find the time to write. I generally don't get started until 8:30 or 9:00 at best. Then you have to get up by 5:00 in order to get a quick workout in before the morning rush hits. But I know I wouldn't trade it for the world. My brother in law is a big race fan, he actually works for the production comapny that does televises the Nextel and Indy races. His son is 7 and can name all of the Nextel and IRL drivers, car numbers and sponsors. He also knows most of the owners. Really scary.

Be ready to be amazed.
