For Sale...

Anybody want to buy my house? It's a lovely, 3-bedroom updated character home in the heart of the beautiful Niagara region. Only 5 minutes from the Welland Canal and Lake Ontario, 15 minutes to Niagara Falls and the U.S. border.

We've got an accepted offer on another house, but it's conditional on the sale of ours. So now, we wait for a buyer. And wait. And wait. Oh, and get everything cleaned up and fixed around the house so that it presents nicely.

I should probably talk to the neighbours as well, since we're a close knit community. It's likely a shock for them to see the sign on our lawn, but we've just out-grown this house.

Here's hoping things go quickly and smoothly.

It's been a week already?

I really try to discipline myself to post every day, but then I look and see it's been a week since my last post. I suck at blog commitment.

A few reality TV thoughts, since I have to be in at 8 p.m. almost every night for baby to go to bed:

1. Rockstar is an awesome show - one of my favourites. But I'm finding myself not able to stand Dilana. I'm really digging Lukas - not sure if it's because he's from my hometown, or if it's because Glowie slipped me some kind of hallucinogen when I saw her a couple of weeks ago. Ryan is the other one I'm rooting for, but not as much. The other part of me wants Dilana to win, just because I know the band won't last very long or see significant success. But I digress....

2. Big Brother - I've never been a big fan of the show (as far as investing my emotions, or loving or hating any particular player), but I find I must watch EVERY EPISODE. I don't have the live feeds, but I check the RTVW many times during the course of a day. Perhaps I'm drawn to it because I'm finding myself smitten by Janelle. I've never been one to fall for the blonde bombshell type, but there's a first for everything. Of course, I'm also in awe of the genius that is Will. But I digress....

3. DW forced me to watch So You Think You Can Dance. Is it just me, or did that show run for 52 consecutive weeks? Holy Shnike! It seemed to never end. Not sure what the big deal was (I never got into it), but I'm sure we'll end up going to see them on tour *rolls eyes*.

4. DW also likes to watch Dog the Bounty Hunter. Not much to say here, other than I think my next career will be as a bounty hunter. It looks exhillerating.

5. Is it time for the Amazing Race to start yet?

Updated some links

Finally got around to updating some more (but not all) links over there --->

Again, if you don't want your link included, just let me know.

And for additional fodder, as of today, I am the proud owner of a new office at work. My cubicle days are behind me - hopefully forever.

Another Meemo on the way

Yes, the Meemo's are recreating again.

For those of you keeping score, Baby Meemo #2 due right around the middle of February. Which (I haven't confirmed this yet) should put us right on schedule with Monsty's next one.

The due date is also the same as someone else's 2nd birthday - that's right... Baby Meemo #1. EXACT.SAME.DATE.

Wouldn't that be fun, having two kids with the same birthday? :-)

Needless to say, life is a bit hectic right now, making preparations and trying to get things (mostly the house) in order. The next six months will fly by (for me at least - I'm fully aware that the last two months will seem like an endless hell for DW).

Just as some background, for those of you who don't know: DW and I have been married for 9 years. We started trying to start a family after one year of marriage. After a series of episodes and tests (unrelated to trying for a baby), DW was told she could never bear children. This was confirmed by 3 different specialists. So we basically gave up hope for the next 6 years.

In the Spring of 2004, DW got pregnant (we were like, "WTF?" - but ridiculously excited and grateful). Unfortunately, she miscarried 10 weeks in.

Two months later, she got pregnant again and now we have an incredible and beautiful little girl who is 18 months old.

We were never expecting to even have one child, and now #2 is on the way.

So what do I need to expect having two kids under (or around) the age of two?
