Don't call it a comeback

A certain someone reminded me that I did not post on the blog this week. Thanks TC. I was busy tiling the new bar in the kitchen. Better late than never.

Last week was another busy one. The only thing of real significance that happened was that Jess and I went to the doc for a checkup. Baby and momma are doing great. Very strong heartbeat. We go back in about three weeks for the next ultrasound. We are still not going to find out the sex of the baby... much to the dislike of many. The arrival date is sneaking up and my excitement level is building.

The new machine is running except for a certain G Code issue we are having. The machine and control are so new that the bugs are still be worked out. Not sure if that is good or bad.

Jess' bro and fiance left this morning. They had a quick visit here in Tulsa then continued on to Cali. It was good to get together with everyone. Eveyone needs to live closer together.

Jess is done with school for the summer and will concentrate on tutoring for awhile. Not much else to say. Maybe something exciting will happen this weekend.

Have a good Friday.

How is everyone? The week went by so fast. I went to the doc for my back. got some meds and I am now feeling better. Jess has about gotten her ear taken care of but can not seem to get enough rest. Schoolwork, tutoring and taking care of herself is wearing her out. Not that I mind, I could use the sleep. July will end her cram for school, for the most part. She has a little work to finish on the fall.

A good friend of mine lost her mother last Friday. The funeral was on Monday in Stillwater. It was a nice service. She and her father are having a hard time but are making it. Jess and I care for our friend very much and wish comfort for her at this time.

So, I missed a good part of the workday on Monday. We bought a new machine a couple of weeks ago. I had it up and going last Tuesday but due to a software error, it has been down since then. The long and short of it was that the service tech tried to download some new software. The download was somehow corrupt and crashed the system. After a week of being down and all options exhausted, Daewoo sent a someone from Korea. I felt bad for him. He received a phone call on Friday at 4PM, was told that he had 45 minutes to catch a flight to Tulsa and somehow ended up in OKC. So, only knowing a few sentences in English, had to give his cell phone to someone in OKC to tell us where he was. That was late Friday and he showed up on Saturday morning. What no one could fix in over a week, he had taken care of in 2 hours. Of course I am sure it helped that he was one of the machine designers. I then told him a couple of machine flaws that I had experienced so far (a little background... This is the first machine of its kind in operation anywhere close) and he kindly listened and said he would get to work on it on Monday. When he was done he showed us pictures of his family. You could tell he was proud. I then tried to explain to him that I had one on the way. It was an exhausting conversation but finally he understood and congratulated me. He was then off to lunch and the airport to return home. Thanks for the help Kim.

It is hot here in Tulsa, I mean HOT! Jess' bro will be in town a week from Monday. If I were him I would avoid Tulsa, but then again, once at the parents' household he will probably need a coat. Against the wishes of her husband and my wife, the mother-in-law and I keep things f***ing cold. Who wants to sweat in their own house?

I leave with a quick baby update: the kitchen is in shambles, I have not started on the baby room and for some reason the To Do List has reached a been pushed to the bottom of the stack. With less than 5 months to go, I suppose I should get busy.

Have a good week!

Another week down

Jess and I started counting the months for the due date of the baby and realized that maybe the doc may be incorrect. From out calculations the baby should arrive sometime the first week of December instead of Christmas day. Jess is going to clarify this at our next check up.

We attended a nice wedding last night of some friends of ours. Jess was one of the bridesmaids and she looked amazing in her dress. Of course she always does. The couple getting married were surounded by alot of family and friends whom you could tell supported and loved them very much. It was apparent that they cared for each other very much and that the marriage will be a happy one.

Jess had an ear infection this week. She went to the doc and got some meds and is doing better. Other than that she is healthy.

Got up this morning to a note left on our car. The note was printed off the internet and was a fabricated conversation between God and St. Francis. The down and dirty of it was how I take care of my yard. I googled it and found it... read for yourself. I think people should mind their own damn business and not touch my car. I hope for their sake I do not find out who they are. At least I take care of my yard and house which is more than I can say for some on my block.

On a side bar we have still not agreed on a boys name for the baby. We have a few ideas but cannot come to an agreement. The girls name has been decided. For those of you not keeping up , we have decided to wait and be surprised on the sex of the baby.

Well, another week down and another begins!

KPs first blog

Its the middle of the week but it feels like Monday. I am sure many experienced this today. Over the holiday Jess and I scratched another task off of our baby to do list. I also built a pantry closet in the kitchen. It is still in progress. Once it is done I can build the bar and paint. Then it is on to the baby room. I am excited about that.

I pulled something in my back whilst working in the backyard so I am a little gimpy. A new machine came in at work today and Chuck went home sick first thing this morning. So needless to say, I did not get much done.

Jess is in a wedding this weekend. She has a lot going on between school, tutoring, studying and trying to maintain her health for the baby. Not to mention taking care of me. Next weekend we will be going on a lake trip with some friends. Should be a good time.

I will sign off for now and stop with the rambling...

Welcome to our blog

So, this blog has been created because I had to for one of my graduate classes. I thought that it might also serve as a good way for Kevin and I to keep everybody updated on the baby and on how things are going. We are going to share the blog so that we can both post news and try to keep this thing somewhat entertaining. I'll do my best to keep up with it, but for now thanks for taking a peek at it!
