We interrupt your regularly scheduled blog for an important announcement.
GOOD NEWS EVERYONE
Well, first let me say I understand I didn’t make my normal post this week. I pride myself on my regularity, with regards to posting. However, the real world had different plans this week and I was side-swiped by fate. What happened, well to answer that I need to give you just a little bit of background info first.
About seven years ago, my friend John married my cousin Heather. At the wedding, I spotted this little woman and before the summer was over, we were married. We’ve been inseparable since. We’ve literally spent a total of maybe two weeks apart since then. Well, the marriage between John and Heather didn’t last, and in fact about three weeks ago we were getting ready for his wedding, this time to a woman named Joye. John and I joked, I told him that I didn’t need anymore good luck from him, so he had to stop getting married. He laughed back, and said “be careful, I’m up to eight kids now. Being around me apparently gets you pregnant”. That’s what we in the writing business call foreshadowing…
See, Brandy was feeling sick before we left for the wedding. She didn’t think much about it, I’d been subbing a lot at the Elementary school just before Spring Break, so no telling what I brought home with me. I ended up feeling a little under the weather myself, we just wrote it off as a bug and went about our business. That is until 2 and a half weeks later, when she still wasn’t better. I took her to the doctor only to find that we almost received the worst April Fools joke of all time, my wife is pregnant. I’m going to be a father. We’re both very happy, we’re just glad the news didn’t come over the weekend when we both would’ve been a little suspicious.
As for the rest, well it looks like the baby is due around November (my wife’s birthday is the 2nd and mine the 11th of November) so, I’m guessing the baby will drop somewhere in the middle. We traditionally celebrate both our birthdays together around then actually, so I wouldn’t be surprised. The funny thing is, if the baby does come in November, that will make something like 13 November birthdays in my family. We seem to like the winter months apparently, as you can imagine Tuesday was spent making the round of the doctors office, calling friends and family, and snuggling with my mom to be.
It should go without saying at this point, that making my weekly post kinda fell to the wayside. Rest assured, I’ve got the skeleton of a post that I started this week, and I’ll have it along with new stuff for next week, barring anymore bizarre real world upheavals. Thanks for reading guys.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled program…
