- 4:17 PM, Thursday,
December 5th, 2013:
- So the dogs were
goin' crazy out back and I grabbed my camera.
Incredibly I captured not only wildlife goodness
(including a squirrel, two dogs and a cat), there's
some baby giggles and inadvertently video of the
finished wall. You really can't ask for more than that
from a Journey video.
- So we're in
December. The baby will most likely be born this
month. Though he's due on the 10th, he's still breech
(as Vienna was the entire time) so theye've scheduled
a C-Section for the 3rd, but Cameron is beating the
shit out of Talya lately and it just doesn't seem like
he's staying in there until 2014. I mean, we're ready
no matter what, we're in the constant mode of
maximizing space by selling or giving away old stuff
on craigslist to balance the onslaught of new stuff.
Speaking of mazimizing space, check out this bit of
nerdom I created:
- That ridiculous
monstrosity is a map of our property. Tan is the house
and guesthouse, maroon is all the decking, brown/white
is the cement, green is the golf course and grass in
the front ...and black (other than the tees on the
golf course) is what's been untouched. I had been
wanting to see just how much space everything takes up
and took a couple hours last week to put that
together. I think it'll surprise people just how
little space is actually GolfKon. Seems a lot bigger
in the videos. There's not a whole lot left to do, but
I do want to cover the new work area I made
in front of the guesthouse so I can properly fill
up that space with manly shit. Not a lotta space for
that in the house anymore. ;-)
- Speaking of manly
shit, we're 48 hours away from the Big Ten
Championship. Whew. I will say this: I'm more neutral
about this game than any Buckeye game in recent
memory. Meaning, either way? It will feel right. I've
always been a realist (no matter how much I may
hope for something, I'm unbiased), and I know how
shitty are schedule has been. If they win? They
deserve to play in the National Championship. If they
lose? They don't. I won't be surprised if they lose...
and not because I think they're a bad team. The
real tragedy in having a great football team in a
shitty conference is that you're not practiced.
Had we played 3 or 4 Top 15 teams this year? We'd be
better prepared for this game. Because we haven't? It
feels like we're gonna get hit HARD... and then get
our bearings as the game goes on. I can almost
guarantee we will win the last 3 quarters. But will it
be enough to offset what is sure to be a slap in the
1st? Not sure of that. We just haven't had
ANY situations like this all year. Here's hopin'
we can withstand just how formidable they are. If we
can't however? I'll be ok with that. I'd much rather
lost on Saturday than have another embarrassment in
the National Championship. No matter what? The right
team is going to be playing that night. The "fairness"
part of me likes that.
