Hello to my fans. i hope things are doing well. it is good to see you all again. i have had a couple minor things happen here in the last week. just trying to remember what they were. ummmm. ha yes, my wife had that second child of ours, i became an uncle on the same day, my oldest nephew turned 4 on that day and lets see what else. i have tendonitis in my right wrist, and internet explorer 7 is out (and maybe it has been for a while) i am the best man in a wedding this weekend and i am to run in a 5k that morning. okay. first. my daughter. Marley (yes, as in Bob) Elane (no i did not misspell it, there is no "i", that is how E.'s parents spelled it for her middle name) was removed on May 22 at 8:11 weighing in at 9 lbs. 5.9 oz and 22" long. for those of you in baby land that that means nothing to you, that is a big kid. Layla was 9 lbs. 1/4 oz. and 20 1/2" long. she has been in the 95% since she was born in relation to size for girls. so needless to say, Marley is a biggin'. She and mom are doing great. we got to come home Friday so we are a happy, sleepy, and full family. Layla is doing well with the transition. i'm sure once we have to start sharing toys, i will have to post diferently but at least we can get her used to that. Sunday, Layla turned 3, so we sent her to her aunts to play with her cousin Evan, who Layla calls "Big Ev" as does most of the family. she had a blast and with a not overly mobile mom and a new born, she had way more fun there than if she would have been home. Now, on the new nephew, the same day (May 22) my step.....brother...in....law (okay, got through it) had their first son, Cade Loseth Tarapowski. an 8 pounder that is cute as a button. yes i am secure in my man hood to use that phrase. next topic, the morning of the 12th of May, when my posse was headed down to Fishers for the bach. party, i had a really odd pain in my right wrist. as time has gone on, it only got worse. in the mornings it is terrible and then by noon after it has loosened up it goes away for the most part. it is a real limiting pain. you can pick something up that weighs 90 pounds and if you do it in the right directions, no problem. if you pick up a pencil...AHHHHHHH! so yes, it is dumb. i was rally concered with drumming for the rest of my life. using the computer, i really wasn't to concerned about. when the doctor brought it out to me he said, okay, you are going to feel like "the Fonz" for a week doing everything thumbs up. i giggled, like a school girl. next topic. internet explorer 7. at the house, i just got us reconnected to the information super highway. while i was updating the laptop, i see that Explorer 7 is out. so i waited till i got to work to add it there to see how i like. i like. good stuff. i love the tabs. i tend to have to many ppages open at a time so the tabs are a good thing. all "yeah" for tabs. "yeah!". next...wedding this weekend. hmmm, i don't think that i have a lot to say here. it's a wedding for my chum Roberto Concerto Fernando Gonzalez Smith-Lastinger and his fiancee Stacy Kenaga(y). good people, i wish them all the best. Next topic....running. well ihavn't done much but i am still going Saturday. 3.2 miles i think. Rob doesn't think that he can make it know due to injury but hopefully he can. i think i got everything. later all.
