saturday first, greasy spoon next
so the big day is saturday! deanna went to the docs office today and the verdict was "let's have this little guy already!" 8am to be precise. it's kind of nice this way, we don't have to worry about the middle-of-the-night frantic trip to the labor and delivery room. we're already packed. we have the room ready. we have the car seat. we have a name!!!
on another front, i finished my plumbing nightmare at mom's house. my brother had done the dirty work in the bathroom downstairs...bashing the concrete floor up so that the drains could be plugged. he also poured in new concrete. my job was to cut and plug the water lines. i don't know anything about plumbing, but some good advice and a little reading on the internet did the trick. i resembled a mouse on a wheel for a while, though, running up and down the stairs, opening and closing the faucets. when i left the house tonight, there were no leaks. if i return to Captain Nemo's revenge in the next day or two, i guess i get what i deserve.
i cut out a few of rosco's stitches tonight. his gaping wound healed up really well. he was pretty dubious about me taking them out, but he sat quietly through most of it, and i only had to manhandle him once or twice.
i had an omlette for dinner tonight. with salsa. and bacon. mmm. my wife sure can cook. between that and the tuna, i think we can open a greasy spoon. chicken enchaladas are another specialty. she brought some of those to the shop when we first starting dating. apparently, she believes that the way to a man's heart is though his gaping mouth!
