Is This Me?

I am an information junkie. I love reading just about anything in print, web, phone, book, etc.

But maybe I’m turning into a man who needs digital detox. I was grossly excited to read about the updated iPhone to be released in a few weeks, I’m listening to the television while I type this, I want a bigger/newer Mac, I love my mini video camera, and on and on.

But this story should assist me. Truthfully, I think I’m fine. I think the more you read, the better, as long as it doesn’t hinder more important things like, well, life!

GOLF: I’m headed to Lockport for the annual UIC golf outing Wednesday. I haven’t played in a long time. If there’s a sport I’d love Liam to play professionally, it’s golf. I could caddy, provide guidance, spend time with the family and take the requisite 8-12 percent for the retirement fund.

Family Time Expansion – Awesome

One of the most worrisome things I think about in preparation of parenthood can be summed up in question format?

How will we fit it all in everyday? Working, feeding, sleeping, changing, groceries, bathing, loving, communicating, and the list goes on.

I know it will happen after we get into a rhythm. I’m sure we’ll adapt just fine after a learning curve. But a recent report in the NY Times says family time is actually on the rise, which is somewhat of a surprise to me.

Practice time is running out. We’re just weeks away before there is an actual baby in our home. I think we’ve asked ourselves more and more lately, Can you believe this is really going to happen? We keep looking back to July and our wedding and think that this is happening all so quickly. But I am really excited to get going, make my mistakes, learn from them and become really good at being a dad.
