Hallway Blogging

I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted. (A la Anchoress, I’ll put this posting in the “it’s all about me, me, me” category). We’ve just started our family vacation, I woke up at an ungodly hour (something I tend to do in hotels for some reason) so I’ve scampered outside with my laptop to do some blogging. Is wireless cool or what? Just got this fancy shmancy new laptop and I’m amazed that you can get connected pretty much anywhere these days. Ahhhh precious laptop, giver of serenity, conveyer of information, like a life raft in an ideologically hostile ocean………sorry where was I, drifted off into computing bliss for a second there.

Life’s been a little crazy for the Jeff1999 household. Mrs. 1999 is in her sixth month of pregnancy….so well…..you know…..let’s just say I’ve got my Mr. Attentive hat on pretty much all the time now, which means blogging is going to be a little lighter for awhile. Being the organized family that we are we’ve also just realized that we need to accomodate the baby and so we’ve bought a new house. Again, being the organized family that we are, we’ve apparantly just realized that we now need to sell our house. It’s a good housing market where we live, but it’s kind of scary owning two houses when you’re nowhere near stinking rich.

I find myself selling our house’s great features to almost everyone I talk to as if they are a potetential buyer:

grocery clerk: would you like that double bagged sir?

Jeff: Sure. We’ll need plenty of bags, we’re moving……..yup it’s going to be hard giving up that house…..sure is a beauty….. we’re moving cuz we need more space, not because there’s anything wrong with it….(nervous laughter) say, are you in the market…..

grocery clerk: I’m only sixteen years old sir.

Jeff: Of course, of course ……………………………… do your parent’s like where they’re living?
