Mother Nature has other plans.

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Dr Dani and I had a date this morning to go running. But mother nature had other ideas.

That major storm that hit the country's midsection with tornadoes on Christmas arrived on the East Coast today. Not tornadoes. But when I got up and dressed to go to the Y, it was cloudy. As I stepped outside, I had to turn around to get my keys. I normally run the 1 1/2 mile to the Y then run back. Today, by the time I had gotten dressed, the ice arrived. Pellets were bouncing everywhere.

By 30 minutes into my session, it was all snow. About an inch had fallen and I sent Dave home. Dr Dani came down around 10 to go or, with two inches of snow on the ground and changing over to a bitter 35 rain, not go running. "I'll just use the treadmill Dad." Good idea.

If it had stayed snow, I think I might have gone running. Of course if it had stayed snow we would have had about 18 inches of snow and running would be a problem tomorrow.



Naming the Grandfather.

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

We went to Dave's house since of course Carolyn is in no condition to travel. What fun it was to have all my children under one roof. And the in-laws and both their daughters too.

I had bought Colin a whole mess of Orioles clothes. From a onesie ha can wear in about a month to a sweat suit he can wear in a year. Carolyn is a big Yankees fan. It was hilarious to watch her opening the bag. It was like she was dipping into a bag of slime. Then she looked at me and said, "I suppose he could wear this stuff around the house."



Yeah, my children did this to my Grandson.

I have always figured I would be known as PopPop. But as a joke while we were waiting last week, I commented on Facebook that I was waiting to see if I was a PopPop or a Nana. My cousin told me he thought I'd be a nana. Dave said I'd always be a Super Nana. I was the stay at home dad after all.

That conversation seemed to take hold. It looks as though I may be the only grandfather to be called Nana.

But then Nana means King in Swahili and some other African languages. Hmm Nana might not be so bad.

But then in Italian Nana means dwarf and at 5 foot 6 inches, that might not be so good.

I'll take Nana = King.

If that's what sticks.



Merry Christmas.

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Oof. We had a houseful this afternoon for dinner. We normally have a sit down, but this year because we were expecting a baby on Christmas Eve, we opted for a buffet. The baby arrived on Friday, but the die was cast for the buffet.

Dr Dani is in town and she and I went out for a run together, 4 miles. She was not used to hills or cold but I kept pushing her.

I just got back from Midnight Mass. It was as usual very nice.

So I am ready to go to bed.


Merry Christmas to all and to all and to all a good night.

I can relate.

Because it's true!



Counting Down to Christmas

Saturday, December 22, 2012

Something brief tonight.

I got over to Hopkins to actually hold Colin for the first time this morning. He is such a sweety. Mommy is doing great. Daddy is very proud and appreciative of everything that their support has been done for them. Dog sitting, laundry, tree watering, driving to Annapolis to hand deliver bar exam application.

I stopped by the Orioles Store on my way home and I bought a large purse and filled it with a bunch of Orioles logoed baby stuff for Colin's Christmas present. The other grands are coming in from NYC and I can't have them inundating my grandson with Yankees Pinstripes, can I?

Oh, so much still to do before our house hosts Christmas on Monday. Tuesday, Christmas day, we actually have no place to be. We have decided to go see Les Miserables. I have never been to a Christmas Day movie, but I hear lots of people do that.
