Creature Chronicles: Waiting Is Interminable

Yeah, it's kind of like that.

Only instead of a high five, it's a baby. Only instead of 3 hours--IT'S NINE MONTHS!

We were fine up until about two weeks ago. Though we had known of his impending arrival for several months, we did not have to chant multiple times a day "I can't wait to meet him, I can't wait to meet him." Though we've always been excited, it wasn't until about two weeks ago that I began to shake Jess, make her go on pointless walks and things of this nature. But alas, that most boring and pointless piece of advice seems to be true: He will come when he is ready.

Well that's for sure, because the Tabasco, the birthing ball, and the amorous endeavors don't seem to be doing a thing.

Each contraction is nothing but a tease, a false promise sure to piddle out. She even got four contractions over two hours last nite.

And then nothing.

Every morning I go to work, hoping I'll get the call, hoping I'll have to peel out of the parking lot like I would if someone told me there was a 5 for 1 deal at the Chevy lot.

He's officially due tomorrow, or was today, who knows about these things. As I do multiple times a day, I'll call Jess, "Anything?"

"Not really, just some weird tightening..."

"Do you think he'll come by this evening?"

"Jason, why do you ask me that 16 times a day? Has my answer ever been different?"

"I know, you're right, I just really want him to show up; I just want to shake his hand."

"Why do you say these things?" She asks as if there is answer.

If I knew why I said these weird things then I might think twice about publishing them on this web log, so the good lord shields me from knowing why I talk strange and think even stranger.

Extreme preoccupation results in a scattered mind, which is what brings you this strange and scattered blog (did I really make a reference to a "Chevy lot"?). Son, come soon, I'd like my brain back.

Good afternoon

A balance must be achieved between the desire for innovative design and the realities of traditional operating and maintenance practices. Durability, ease of maintenance and material innovation are all incorporated into Mansour Engineering approach.
