The Countdown Begins – Awesome


There are 26 days until SulliChild has been predicted to exit his/her current address for more spacious surroundings.

There are 26 (.2) miles in a marathon. SulliParents have completed 10 marathons in total. (SulliMom with seven) Can you believe Molly already is planning on running the Disney Marathon in January ’11? She is amazing. I’m 99.9% sure I’m retired. But like MJ, I’ve creaked the door open for a return.

Each day until April 23rd I’ll post a mile, er, article of awesomeness. That is, something awesome to do as a father, something awesome to use, an awesome toy, awesome food, awesome…whatever. Now, these may be things I presume will be awesome. In many cases, I will not have experienced said awesome item.

But I digress. Today’s awesome item is a cross between Skype and Kumon Learning Center. Plus, it was created here in Chicago and has offices about a mile from SulliCrib.

Meet Readeo. If you’ve tried it, let me know what you think. It looks awesome.

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.
