Things and stuff

Well, considering I started off my last post all excited about Nine Inch Nails and Jane's Addiction touring and coming to our area, I'll start off by WHINING that they backed out of that date. They are now coming nowhere remotely close to us. Unless I feel like traveling to Toronto at 8 months pregnant, and let me say, given my undying love for NIN, that's not something I'm willing to do. And I'm pretty sure that Brad isn't going to allow that either. So, I will suffer the sadness of missing another awesome concert. I just hope they release a DVD or CD, since NIN will be going underground for a while after this. *sigh*

Spring has finally, kinda, arrived here in Rochester. I say spring and I mean that it is over 30. But seriously, it has been in the upper 40s/50s and that is like pure heaven for us. It has been a long, hard, cold winter but we managed to survive. We aren't out of the woods yet, but buds are popping up on trees and some flowers are starting to poke out of the ground, so we can see relief on the horizon.

This weekend Dominick turns 4 years old. I am completely boggled at this idea. Four years ago I was extremely uncomfortable, cranky, enormous, and miserable. And this time, well, I'm just uncomfortable and cranky. I haven't reached sheer misery yet or enormity. But I will hopefully get some pictures up and who knows, maybe even a shot of my 6 month belly, fully clothed of course. Time definitely does fly when the kid(s) arrive. Looking at the clothes we've gotten for this little girl so far, I sit back and realize she probably won't wear some of them at all, if not maybe once or twice. It's really nuts.

Brad is still on the search for a new job. If you aren't sure of how crappy our economy is, trying applying for a new job and try to keep track of how many callbacks you actually get. Or interviews. It's frustrating, but somehow we are making it.

But on the funner side of things, it's been a Bruce Campbell marathon in our house for the past week or so. We watched his latest, My Name is Bruce, and are going to start watching his short-lived series, The Adventures of Brisco County Jr. I am also extremely excited because one of my and Mary's favorite reality shows is coming back, Deadliest Catch. Yay for Tuesday nights again!

Early birthday present to me

Monday is my birthday. I am another year older in my early 30s and break into 32. With Dominick's birthday being at the end of the month, I have been consistently forgetting about my own birthday as I just focus on his. Now that I'm passed the 30 mark, birthdays aren't a big deal until, well, 40. Eek. But to celebrate this "occasion" I've taken Monday off and Brad and I are going to see Watchmen. We are very, very excited.

It has been a very, very rough few weeks in our household. We had a scare with the babe, but after an amniocentesis test, everything came back a-okay, so we will be having a healthy baby girl. Phew! Brad is currently looking for a new job, which has been... difficult, but we're confident he'll find something new. Because it's so easy to be unemployed in this shit economy right now.

In response to my last post, NIN did post some of their tour dates with Jane's Addiction and lo and behold, they are coming to Darien Lake on June 3rd! Yup, I am going to be 8 months pregnant at a concert. Maybe it will get things moving along. This is assuming things are still going normally and I'm not on bed rest for some reason. But, I am way, way psyched and checking daily for when tickets go on sale.

The weather up here has finally started to turn. Well, kind of. We had some frigid weather in the 20s earlier this week, but now we're having a heat wave and are in the 40s and 50s. Doesn't sound like much to most people, but after dealing with frigid temps for several months, it is a much welcome relief. Almost all of the snow has melted and everything looks brown and dirty, but dammit, it isn't white!
