Not the way I had expected to start the New Year. Currently being wiped by out some virus/flu thing...Spent the night before making steady trips to the toilet and now am just plain dead tired...

With last week's vacation added in, I'll be close to two weeks off the bike by the time I get going again. I'm sensing the first few days are going to really suck!

Yeah, join the club. More like a month for me, so I'll be in shape around September. Get well.

If I can get that done then BikeReg will go live in a few weeks, maybe Feb 1.
Wrong thread.

Tell me about your bowel movements. Or little Aki's.

We spent Xmas week with my wife's family. Every once in a while I'd be caught off guard by the casual racism and xenophobia of some of her elderly, tea party sympathizer relatives.

I actually made it through four days at my parent's house without my mother going off on some crazy political rant. She started to go off on something about guns, but everyone started shouting at her and she stopped. It was the first time that has actually happened.

Yup, can't wait. Now I'm trying to document everything I do to hand off to the suckers that will be stuck doing all my stuff. And there are a few unfinished things I really should get done.

We had some total blowouts to end all blowouts. Meaning Junior, not me I realized that in 16 years he'll Google (or rather, his friends will Google) and find stuff and be embarrassed. So I decided to stop posting about his blowouts, including 3 wardrobe changes in 90 minutes (and we're using diapers rated 22+ lbs for a 19-20 lbs kid).

He's getting a tooth, almost. Front 4 teeth visible in his gum. Crawls everywhere. Wants to examine every new detail of everything he sees. No fear. Stands without support sometimes without realizing it. Starting to have opinions. And he's not yet 10 months old.

He's just amazing, I just love him like crazy.
