Well, my wife Laurel is supposedly due to give birth to our child sometime this week. She's finally begun her maternity leave and it will be really very nice having her home with me during my August break. Hopefully we'll both have a brief chance to kick back together and relax a bit before our lives take a very different turn for the next 18 years or so--a turn I am very much looking forward to, mind you.
