I’m Batman!

I shall refrain from excessively commenting on my lack of posts. It’s become too repetitive really. The TL;DR version is: Computer broke and life happened. Moving on.

Bringing you up to speed from my last post to this one is as simple as this: Healing from gall bladder surgery took about a month to be truly back to my old self. I got fed up with Mark’s as they weren’t giving me the promotion that I’d been trying for. Got a new job at Target as of this past February as a Hardlines Team Leader and have been loving it ever since. Kids are growing like weeds. Wife is as hot as ever (despite her belief to the contrary)...

Tales From Post-Op

So my gall bladder came out last night. Apparently the surgery was more difficult that usual.

I feel old and worn out today. But drugs are helping ease the pain. Just wish it didn’t take me 20 min to get into bed.

Least its gone. And I’m on the broth and jello diet now. Yum!

Soon I will be having the slurpee I crave and my mum’s vegetable soup. I can’t wait.

The Tale of The Inflamed Gall Bladder

So here I sit in the local hospital waiting to have my gall bladder removed. I’ve been here for a little over 36 hours now and am kind of bored (hence this post).

To sum up, for those of you who are interested. Went to sleep monday night. woke up around 2am tuesday morning with some intense pain in my abdomen. Whimpered through the night and came into hospital around 7am. After a flurry of tests, it was determined that I had gallstones and an inflamed gall bladder. Doctor put me on antibiotics and kept me for observation, with the intent of getting it out if at all possible.

Surgeon says he will fit me in today at some point so now I just sit here and wait.

I’m happy that its happening and I’ll finally be free of the pains that I occasionally get, but there is a big part of me that wa...

Ghosts Of Bloggers Past

So hi. Been awhile now hasn’t it. This is probably the longest stretch that I’ve gone without so much as even a whisper.

Such is life. I’m back now however and will be infrequently rambling on about the stuff in my head as I see fit.

Won’t really go into the reasons for my absence from the blogosphere other than to say life happened.

One of the things that has occurred during my time away from the world, is that I’ve apparently gained an alter ego. There is apparently another Greg McFall who is American and lives in Vietnam working for a charity of some sort. I get his emails sometimes.

Based on the emails I get, I’ve discovered that my alter ego is gay (or at least very bisexual) and has a number of boytoys scattered throughout Southeast Asia.

For the most part I have generally ig...

Obligatory Baby Pic Post

My daughter turned 4 months old at the beginning of the month and now tops the scales at 14lb. 9oz. and is 25¼” long. Putting her in the 75th Percentile for weight and 80th for height. Yes, she’s a big baby and is already outgrowing 6-9 month sized clothes. She’s happy, healthy and is almost always smiling. Now if she’d only sleep through the night…

Here’s a few pics we had done recently. They’re cute, but we thought they were far too impersonal and posed for our tastes which is why we have so few of them. Still,  she’s my baby girl and I have to show her off every chance I get so here they are.

Hello World!

Hello Everyone, I’d like you to meet Emily Jade, my darling daughter.

IMG00003

She was born at 1.31 am on December 2nd, 2009. She weighed in at 8lb. 3oz.  and measured 21 3/4″ long. It was a fairly easy delivery after being induced and mum and baby are healthy and happy (if tired). There are more pics in the Gallery and I’ll add to them when I can.

Obviously my already sporadic and non-existent posting schedule just got worse. Deal with it.

T Minus One Month (Give or Take)

So in a little under a month, the growth that has been hindering Tamara’s sleep will be excised and I will be the proud parent of a new baby wetums doll. Or something along those lines. Yup, that’s right… approximately 30 days from now is when the little squidlet is due and I can’t wait. No clue as to the baby’s gender as of yet, so that’ll be fun. Stuff around here isn’t ready yet at all… sigh! Such is the life of a hectic homeowner I guess.

I’ll post more once the time is nigh and obviously I’ll spam the obligatory newborn baby pics.

Ugh.. next I’ll be corralling you all into watching my home movies of the vacation to butt-fuck, nowhere. Bah!

Anyways, I shall spam more later. In the interim there is laundry to do and boxes to unpacketh. Yay me!

I’m Going To Hell

So Patrick Swayze died tonight and rather than mourn or comment on the loss of an actor that I didn’t really care all that much about, all I could think was “This is what happens when you put Baby in a corner.”

Yup. I’m going to Hell… and I don’t mind one bit.

G’night

It’s A Keeper

Well I’ve decided to go ahead and keep the new layout. It works for now I suppose.

In other news, all the conditions were removed from our offer, so come Sept 8th I’ll have a new address. Woo!

House Of Cards

Hello once again my dear friends (pretending that there is more than one of you still reading this makes it easier on my fragile ego). I seem to have become quite the delinquent blogger over the past little while. I guess having a family and a job that takes up all your time does sort of prevent certain time wasting elements of life.

So, let me ‘splain… no there is too much. I’ll sum up. Prince Humperdinck marry… errr nevermind. You all know the joke. I’ve used it enough times already that you can all just finish it in your heads at your convenience. Think of it as my gift to you.

So let’s see how things are in Gregtown.

Baby is somewhere in the 5th Month and making mommy rather grumptastic with it’s kickfests. Apparently the Five Nations Cup is being played in Tamara’s Uterus...
