A tad bit on the incoherent side of life...

I've been on a tad bit of a hiatus from the interweb the past couple of weeks. Primarily getting by blogidohexiweb fix via RSS Feeds (yes I know they're da debil) and leaving comments few and far between. This week marks my return to normalcy, somewhat.

Just a random smattering of incoherent ramblings to start of the week:

The missus and phinlet are doing well. I really can't put into words how much the everyone's kind words and well wishes mean to us. I never realized just how many friends (a term I don't throw around frequently) until now. The only thing I can come up with it. Thank you for your kind words, for keeping the missus and phinlet in your thoughts and prayers. Thank you for your words of encouragement. Thank you for providing a distraction when life was all too real. Thank you.

I've never been sure I'd measure up to the level of parenting my parents reached. I'm still unsure, but with the missus by my side I'm not as nervous as I once was.

I'm back at the office fulltime. I'd say back at work, but I don't want to be here. Kind of funny how priorities can change in the blink of an eye. Well not really the blink of an eye, you get the drift.

I'm constantly amazed by phinlet. I'd always been a tad bit nervous about being a father. In the two and a half weeks since his hatching phinlet has already taught me more than I'd ever thought possible.

It crushes me each time I have to leave home to go to work knowing that there are several hours I won't be around the two people I hold most dear in life.

Our pet boxer has already become quite fond of phinlet. If he's less than happy about something and we're not attending to his needs as she thinks we should she'll let us know by banging on the side of her kennel or with a bark (or two).

Amazing how life works ain't it?

Damn Phin. This brought tears to my eyes.

I'm just so happy for y'all. Really.

It's so great when life "works".

Brought a lump to my throat. The phinlet is in great hands.

I, too, teared a bit! the phinlet is so lucky to have such a loving dad, er, fish, er . . .

Congratulations again. Oh, and that crushing feeling you get when you leave for work? I get it everyday too!

Beautiful phin...and by the way, our daughter is just about to turn 16 months old and my hubby still feels the same way about leaving her.

Dang. I never ever thought I'd get teary reading your blog! He's a lucky little baby to have a mommy and daddy who love him so. :)
