My days are spent on the couch, taking care of a cute little guy and trying not to go crazy.
I am not good at sitting still.  Especially when I am beginning to feel sort of human again.
Sure doesn't help that there is NOTHING on tv during summer.

But I know that as soon as I get up and try to tackle a project, I will pay for it greatly.
So I sit.
Good thing that I have a little friend to keep me company.

Need a laugh?
Paul F. Tompkins is your guy.
We fought Carmageddon to see him and this bit about new dads never disappoints.
I posted it when Janey was born and it seems equally applicable today.

Best line?

Why are so many people trying to assassinate your baby?
