Preparing for a baby encompasses so much more than I thought it would. I mean, I knew it would be eventful and all, but when you actually think about the details, the grandeur is just amazing. There is the standard gift registry, which is a staple of baby-prep, but is also just the tip of the iceberg. For example, my wife signed us up for this "birthing" class where we will be practicing breathing techniques she will be applying during labor. Fun fun. Then, there's the baby shower, and making sure the house is ready for the huge influx of estrogen that'll be here that day. And of course, there's baby-proofing every single square-inch of the house, and going over it again just to make sure everything is fail-safe. Yeah, tons of work.
I am a little excited though, because I have been making good progress with all that needs to be done. Today, I finished painting the nursery two shades of pink; light on the top, purple-pink on the bottom. If one shade of pink wasn't enough to strip away my dignity, two definitely was... just walking into that room is a blow to my manhood, but it's all for the little one, so I'll gladly deal with it, and it's one major thing marked off on my to-do list. =)
So with that project done comes free time to actually post decent content on this blog thing I've been semi-neglecting. But this week is going to be pretty sweet; here's what to expect:
- Open letter to Blizzard: How to fix Affliction Warlocks.
- McDonald's on Obesity: Guess what they partially blame?
- On the Couch: Interview with Clinkz of Nihilum.
I'm very excited to say the least. =)
But for now, I'm off to pick up the wifey. In the meantime, here's to the week ahead. A little more pink, but way hotter. =)
