April 17th 2018 - A Taxing Day

Here I sit, the calm before the storm. 
At the moment the wife is at work, the 12 year old is at school and the toddler is with grand parents because I needed to have some personal time and space to get some stuff in order before tomorrow.

I started doing dishes and the toddler wanted to help.  Cleaning up the floor afterwards was annoying and of course the is the always constant demand for "more bubbles daddy" which means using more detergent than I'd like.
However, I marched forward and the first load is in the dishwasher currently drying and I will finish the rest of them later on.

Took clothes out of the dryer and also put a new load in.  Spent some time folding and re-folding and re-folding and a constant "Stop touching that, leave it alone.  NO it is already folded, you don't need to fold it.... Please stop touching the clothes...."
I'm not sure how I actually finished folding them but I completed that one load with no casualties.

I also assembled a baby car seat because for some reason the one we had 3 years ago doesn't appear to exist any longer.  Now I just have to put it in the car so that we will be ready to leave the hospital in a couple of days.

Everything leads to tomorrow and the birth of my 2nd (3rd if we are speaking non genetically).

Tomorrow of course is Tax Day which normally falls on the 15th unless the 15th is during a weekend.  So, my sweet baby Sofia will be born on Tax Day and that is pretty cool thinking about it because in a former life I went to school to do taxes and actually graduated with a B.S. in Accounting.  All these years later I have a baby born on Tax Day just to remind me what I did not do with my life.

Other notable things about the 17th of April.

Bat Appreciation Day
Blah, Blah, Blah Day.
Ellis Island Family History Day
International Ford Mustang Day.
International Haiku Poetry Day.
Malbec World Day.
National Cheeseball Day.
National Kickball Day.
Nothing Like a Dame Day.
World Hemophilia Day.


So people.
In order to make this day more special to me I'd love if any of my readers would take a moment and write a little something about one of the above "days."

I know I have some words to eventually type about some of the above but it would be cool to relive this every year and see what my friends have to say.

Thank You all in Advance and come tomorrow I'll have new pictures of my new love to share!

Its-a-coming

I know how I was all gun-ho earlier and wanting to type more but as it gets closer and closer to having the new baby my time has disappeared and when I do have a few free moments I don't want to spend it in front of a keyboard.

My time has been so dedicated to everything else that I still have to file my taxes and that shit is coming up real quick (As a matter of fact, it is on her 0th birthday).

So, you get my apologies and I will end up doing better but I've really had to put my focus elsewhere.

The end of this pregnancy has been really rough on the wife unlike the last two and she is hoping she just randomly pops but that bitch has a strong uterus and that baby could probably live in there until she is 3 or 4 years old.


Also - we have some really amazing friends who have given us some great things for the baby and we are really appreciative.

In fact, I'm going to (at least) get some thank you cards going (which I know I suck at but I want to get better so that my children can be better at it).


So,
I'm going to go let a 3 year old out of time-out now and ignore the 12 year old who won't listen to me for a bit until I go to work.


Peace, Love and I can't wait for Wrestlemania tomorrow.
