What's goin on?

Hey internets. It's March. I know a lot of people do not like March, but I do.

First off, my birthday is in March, and even though I don't like to have a big deal made out of my birthday, I do enjoy getting a card from my wife and small, hand-made gifts from my kids and stuff like that on my birthday. Also, I usually celebrate my birthday with a little extra alke-ma-hol. Not to get loaded or anything, just to mark the day. There was once a time when I did not think I would make it past the age of 25. Thank goodness that I have. I would have missed out on a lot of incredibly great stuff.

The other reason I like March is because St. Patrick's Day is in March. I am not Irish, but I do like Guinness and if St. Patrick's day is an excuse for me to have one, I'll take it. Here is a St. Patty's Day oddity for you: to my knowledge, I have never had corned-beef.

Another reason behind my fondness for March is that it is followed by April and also Scott's 4-Step lawn program goes on sale in March, and when lawn products are on sale, Spring can not be too far away.

Since I'm not posting too much lately, here are a few quick updates:

Fat Fighting: I am in the 150s muthafuckas. That's right. It has taken me what has seemed like forever and I was seriously beginning to wonder if that damn scale was actually broken, but I am now within striking distance of that elusive goal of 155 and the ultimate goal of eventually getting under 155...

Basement: The sheet-rocking is almost done. All the walls and closets are done. I now have to do small areas like above the closets and doors and stuff like that, then it will be time for the taping phase. Woo. I will be so glad when the sheet-rocking is done because it will start to feel like a room, not a basement.

Once the sheet-rock is completed, it will be time for paint. I am going to try and paint one of the walls to look like The Green Monster at Fenway.

Baby: We brought the baby home from the hospital on Thursday morning. As I'm sure you can guess, helping with the baby has taken up almost all of my time. My wife had a c-section so I am off from work this week to help out with taking care of the kids and getting things done around the house.

I don't want to get too mushy on everybody, but our new baby is truly a gift from heaven. She is such a good baby and I truly believe that she may be the cutest thing that I have ever seen (not that I am biased or anything, ha ha!) She only cries when she is hungry or has other diaper related issues. She spends most of the time sleeping but when she is awake she is happy and is very inquisitive about this new place she is in, looking all around and listening to all the new sounds and voices. She really likes to hear the voices of her big brother and sister. Whenever she hears them she opens her eyes and looks around to try and see where they are.

Right now she likes to be awake at night and sleep during the day, which makes things hard on my wife, and me, to a much lesser extent. We have gotten very little sleep over the last few days because the baby is active at night and we have been up at all kinds of crazy night-time hours.

I have been drinking mega-amounts of coffee these last few days. For my morning cup, I usually fill the water level for the amount of coffee to the '3' line. These last few days, I've been filling it up to the '5'.

We have been trying to get the baby on a normal time schedule by waking her up more during the day. We are hoping this way she will want to sleep more at night. We expect her to still wake up when she is hungry, but that is ok.

Well, that's the, 'all about me', update, which I'm sure you all love.

It's looking like the NFL Idiots are not going to be able to meet their deadline to try and figure out how to divide up all that money they all make before free-agency starts on Monday, but I will try and write about that another time. I'll shoot for something tomorrow.

Right now, it's time for some wild Saturday night action: I'm going to have a Miller Lite and watch a few episodes of Miami Vice, Season 1. Wooooo!
