Sometime you just need a break, and that is exactly what I've had the past few weeks when my #1 computer, the command center of my digital photography workflow, ceased to work. I have been taking photos, but at a much slower pace than before the computer breakdown. And if you remember my post on Car Fever- I have somewhat solved that problem. This past weekend Megan and I purchased a 2009 Subaru Outback. It's a great car and I love it, but now it is time to sell my supercharged 2003 Toyota Corolla S. If you know anyone close to Columbus that is looking for a sporty car with great gas mileage, please shoot me an e-mail.
And there are more updates to our lives. Weston is now 19 months old, and every day he seems to need more attention. It's great, it's fantastic- I love how he is aging and becoming more interactive with us- it just means that there is less time to do other things. Like blogging and taking photographs of nature. What am I doing more? Playing the piano and the electric guitar at Weston's request- he loves music.
Congratulations go out to Megan, who has a new position as a full time assistant professor of nursing at the largest university in SW Ohio (think bears...think cats...think the Ohio River). Fortunately for us, she'll be working exclusively in said university's online nursing program, meaning she can do almost all of the work here at our home in Worthington. She will travel to the afformentioned university only a few times a quarter. She has found it incredibly rewarding to be able to take care of our son and hold a full time faculty position at a major university. I'm mega-proud of Megan!
And finally, perhaps the biggest news of all. If everything goes OK (I'm extra cautious, being the husband of a women's reproductive health professional), we'll be adding one more member to our family come March. We just had our twenty week ultrasound and everything looks good. This pregnancy has been different for both Megan and I- we can only imagine just how different this child will be from Weston. Like Weston, we chose to find out the baby's gender at its birth. We are still working on potential names- picking two great names this time is much more challenging- yes, I think we've even scrapped the girl name that we had picked last time.
All in all, I have enjoyed a little break from the Blogosphere, the Twitterverse, and Facebook. Once I get my computer back up and running, you'll see more of us, but for now, I'm enjoying this little break. I'll be back, refreshed and rejuvenated before you know it.
