Catching up…

So much to catch up on.  It is hard to believe that my little girl is three weeks old today.  I guess that God saw it fit to give me time to write tonight.  For some reason, as I am sure we will all find out later, all of the power in the surrounding RVA area has gone out.  Little one is asleep, and the wife is getting ready for the household shift change.  So, I will write until I have to take over, or the battery runs out on my laptop.  That aside…

Zoey Kathryn was released after nearly two weeks in the NICU to come home.  Let me tell you a few things about that trip home.  First, I have never carried such a precious cargo.  Second, Downtown to the west end has NEVER felt like such a long drive.  Third, Taking the surface roads instead of the highway ‘sounded’ like a brilliant idea.  Lastly, I have NEVER (and I must repeat, NEVER) not reached the posted speed limit on an ENTIRE trip. To be fair, all of the first three items put together is a darn good reason to not come within 5 miles under… at least that is what I think.

I AM A DAD, I am scared out of my mind, and REAL dads do not worry about speeding tickets… they drive too slow.
