- Baby is now officially overdue. After hearing for months that our son could come “any day,” plus Diana having to endure bed rest since Labor Day, contractions almost daily since the end of September, and a 12-hour contraction spell that included two hours in the hospital two weeks ago, it’s been an emotional roller coaster waiting to meet him. Apparently the bed rest worked, because not only is he now full-term, but he’s overdue by two days and counting.
- Almost as interminable. The world’s longest campaign in recorded history comes to a close tomorrow. Can’t wait, not only for the end of the empty promises and another vote for the better of two imperfect candidates, but also for the end of evangelical proclamations that a vote for either candidate is the end of life as we know it. Isn’t it disturbing that people who share faith values can be equally strident about opposite political persuasions while simultaneously claiming that their political position more closely resembles God’s than their counterpart at the church down the street?
- Community scouting. Aside from a year or two in Royal Rangers, I was never into scouting as a boy. But Judah loves the outdoors, collecting rocks, digging in dirt, and hiding in the woods, so we signed him up for Cub Scouts this year at the invitation of a little league teammate. He’s loving it so far. A couple of weeks ago I mentioned our first camping trip; the last week we experienced out first Cub Scout Halloween party and yesterday was our first time passing out water to the NYC Marathoners. Fun stuff.
More Marathon pictures here.
- Techie Fun. Enjoying my new G1 (Google) phone. It’s not a perfect phone (no video, special audio adapter, hyper sensitive mouse ball), but it integrates Google apps (Gmail, Calendar, etc) seamlessly, and new applications for the operating system are available every day. I’m enjoying it.
