So, I was a bachelor this weekend....

Hey all,

So Alycia spent the weekend up in Coeur d' Alene/Pinehurst and the dog and I stayed home here in Boise. It was Alycia's moms birthday and her Dad was cool enough to fly her up so that she could be there with her family. Meanwhile, I stayed home and pretty much did nothing. By nothing, I pretty much mean it. I slept in as late as possible and then I hung out around the house with Teddy our dog. I'm even boring myself as I write this.

One thing I did do is clean up around the house. Now that Alycia's pregnant, I've tried to do more around the house so she doesn't have to. I can't stand doing the dishes but, surprisingly, I kinda enjoy vacuuming. Maybe it's because it makes noise and sucks stuff up or maybe it's because it scares the crap out of the dog. All I know is that I don't mind doing it.

I also cleaned the bathroom which has always been my job since we got married and I'm trying to remember how exactly I got stuck with this duty. Anyways, I cleaned the tub and toilet and even opened up some potpourri to ensure that our bathroom is fresh at all times. Not very manly, I admit, but it's true and it's just another thing that Alycia doesn't have to do.

The pregnancy is going really well and, lately, her belly has really been growing. Actually, it seemed to grow almost overnight and now there's no denying that a little baby is on the way. We've been going over different baby names but it seems like we've only been coming up with names for girls. It seems that everyone thinks we're going to be having a little girl instead of a boy. My sister, Tara, who believes she possesses the gift of being able to predict whether or not someone is going to have a boy or girl, says that a girl is on the way. On a side note, Tara says she's never been wrong and I think this merits further investigation. Anyways, even when I try to think up of some good boy names, only girl names pop into my mind. If anyone has any good name suggestions, please submit them because my mind is totally blank.

Well, this post has gone on long enough. If you have any good boy names then let us know. I'm gonna go find out why I always have to clean the bathroom. Later!
