I feel guilty, not about anything in particular, I just do. Maybe because I haven’t written anything in a while? It’s not like I get paid for this though so the guilt is a mystery to me. Work has been weird this week as far as lunch is concerned, the only place I went was Moxies. The food was good but I am trying to avoid writing about big chains unless I find something really great.
So what do I have to say? Not sure but this is my blog and I’ve got to say something right?
We’re having dinner at my in law’s place,seafood pasta mmmmm. Hayley got to meet her Great Grandma and Uncle Charlie for the first time, it was pretty cool to have 4 generations in one room. I’m still amazed at how fast things are changing and how quickly Hayley is growing. It seem like yesterday that Lyndsey told me she was pregnant.
For those of you who don’t know my daughter Hayley was born fourteen and a half weeks premature. We brought her home on Mothers day after 93 days in the Neonatal intensive care unit. She is the greatest thing that has ever happened to me and I would give up everything for her.
We have some good friends that are expecting a daughter in August and I can’t wait to have someone close by to hang out with. They have no idea how much their lives are about change and they will realize that they have no idea what love is until they look into their child’s eyes for the first time.
Awe look at me, all sappy and in love. I started writing a book about Hayley but I’m really having a hard time writing about the time we spent in the hospital, it’s very personal and hard to talk about but it will be good for me to share it. I hope it will help other dads with premature children. Dads are an afterthought when it comes to the care of their children in a hospital and it was very frustrating to me as I’m sure it is to other dads. If I heard the words “why don’t we wait until mom gets here” one more time I was going to cry.
I found out last night that a really good friend of mine got engaged. I couldn’t be happier for her and her husband to be. They are awesome people and I can’t wait to see them at baseball to congratulate them.
Well I guess that’s it, nothing else to say. I know it wasn’t about food but I don’t care. Like I said it my blog and I can write about whatever I want.
It’s pretty cool to be me.
