No News is... No News.

Update: Still no new addition to the family. We're at either four days, or two days late, depending on whose due date calculations you go by.

To my as-yet unborn: Mommy is getting uncomfortable and impatient. Won't you come see us before the 25th? It would really be keen to have this joyous and momentous occasion over with so we can get to know you (at all hours of the night, I'm going to bet). Besides, your daddy is checking his cell phone with maddening frequency this morning.

The flip side of all of this is that my wife is now off work, and while not 100% mobile and lacking a certain degree of agility (and fashionability), she can get a few errands done. I'm hoping to come home to a full pantry this evening, even if I don't know how we'll pay for it on 1.5 salaries. But I'll save the "goddamn it's expensive to have kids and pay your way through adulthood" rant for another day.

Wait...was that my cell? Hmm... still nothing.

You know, you really should write a post and leave it unposted until you get the call. Then, as I'm certain you will be completely lucid and focused, when you do get "the call" you can just press "Post" and inform all of your eager readers of the impending event.

Because I'm certain we'll be right at the top of your list of priorities at that point...
