Hospital Blanket Opportunity Knocks


It dawned on me today–a day which provided temperatures approaching the triple digits but still I thought of blankets for some reason–that I have a chance.

If only my sister-in-law Sarah, while recovering at a respected Long Island medical institution following the birth of her son Owen, could dig up the courage to nab a hospital blanket I’d have a chance to own one. Come on Sarah!!

Not that she has other things to worry about.

Recently I posted about my lack of hospital blanket and to my surprise many people were allowed to snag one or two on the way out. This simply wasn’t an option. Funny how I rarely had an issue pilfering pint glasses from bars in my younger years but couldn’t build up the courage to toss a used blanket in the diaper bag.

The years are catching up.

Which brings me to my next question that I think will be fun–post anonymously if you would like–what was the last item you stole and how old were you when you committed the crime?

Uncle Buck I Am Not


I am not Uncle Buck.

I’m no Uncle Buck, but I am quite excited to be an uncle again after news came in that SulliMom’s eldest sister Sarah brought Owen Patrick into the world last night. Oh, I guess her husband Tom had something to do with it too.

All I have to say to Owen is: Watch out for your big sister Tess. I saw how “gentle” she was with Liam so take precautions. Just giving Tess a hard time–she was very good with Liam actually.

Congratulations to Sarah, Tom and Tess. It’s very exciting stuff.

Bachelor Night


Our goddaughter Tess flew into the very Windy City this morning with her mom Sarah. I can’t wait to see them. I was hoping to get out there today or tomorrow, but it looks like Thursday. We’ve been Skyping with them from Long Island and Tess is growing up so quickly.

I really can’t wait for her to interact with SulliChild. I think that will be really cool.

With that said, SulliMom made her way to Barrrrrrington to hang out, while I did a little UIC-WIU softball announcing. So I am home alone. Which means…

Mac ‘N Cheese and watching the Titanic.

Just me watching the Titanic.

Anytime I miss my wife, I look for the James Cameron classic on television and hunker down.

Our child is in trouble.

LASTLY: Apparently, Jim Mateja, the long time auto writer is calling it quits. One of the stories featured is an article he composed about auto companies trying to accommodate women who were expecting among other family needs. It made for a funny photo…

I don't think I'd do well with being pregnant.
