2004 in Review
It really all is a blur before Lil''Ducky started growing. It seems to me that the year only started when Deah and I began trying to get pregnant. But alas let''s see what I can pull together:
- Spent last Christmas just the 2 of us - very nice to start our own traditions.
- Went to Texas in March for a week - GREAT to have Tony (my best friend) all to myself, though I think his and mine antics start to drive Deah to divorce.
- Decided that I simply can NOT live in our apartment anymore, thus we move across the street (literally!) into a 3 bedroom townhouse the middle of April.
- Sent Deah to help her mum "Clean Sweep" her 200 year old house before moving into her brand new house - that a very nice blind man is building for her.
- Had a summer of visitor''s in the new house: Mum and Dad from Tokyo for Canada Day, Lisa and Lisa (one of the Lisa''s was my old college roomate) for a weekend, The Texas Boys (Tony and John) for a week.
- Took Tony and John to Montreal Pride 2004; make them do all the talking/drawling.
- At a small intimate dinner of our "urban family" annouced Deah''s pregnancy. Most of the other woman are agast and in disbelief that we know Deah''s pragnant at 3 weeks and 4 days. Much convincing follows.
- Visited with our neice Grace in Kitchener, Ontario. I finally realize that babies grow out of the can''t do anything for themselves stage. Much running and playing in the leaves with Grace ensues.
- Turkey Feast ''04 goes off without a hitch!
- The Spooktacular 26-er Mixer is the best party ever! Though she who tried to steal liquor bottles at the end will remain forever banned from the house!
- Coined the phrase "these are the people in your gay-borhood" and use it to it''s death.
- Spent Christmas with Wade and Jayda. Have so much fun through the day that there was no time to feel home or family sick. Thanks to all for the awesome baby clothes and stuff.
- Mum and Dad arrived on Dec. 28th to spend New Year''s with us.
- Mum and Dad individully ensure that Canada''s economy is sustained for another year.
To all those events and individuals I might have forgotten: my apologies as it is early and I have yet to drink my coffee today. Tea simply doesn''t cut it!
To all our family and friends near and far: Have a safe and wonderful New Year''s Eve celebration, with peace and joy to you in the New Year.
