My back still hurts from the surgery. I am cautiously calling the whole thing a success because the pain down my legs is lessened to a certain degree, but I still get some pain. I’m pretty sure that the current pain is a result of the surgery and may lessen as I heal up. That’s what I’m hoping. Emily informed me this morning that I have 14 staples in my back. I knew that there were a bunch, but 14 is more than I would have guessed.
My Mom just got another knee replacement and has been laid up since Monday. She came through pretty good and I’m sure she will be up and about and jetsetting the world again soon.
Emily talks so much that I am shocked (!) that there are words left for me to write down. If there is a finite number of them, she will use them all up at some point. Jonathan is the exact opposite. He is just starting to use sentences to communicate, but his progress is remarkable and distinct, so I am very optimistic about him reaching age-appropriate communication skills in the future. We have long worried about his speech development, but he is plenty clever, so I don’t think he has any delays past his speech. He runs DVDs and computers at 4 years old, he’s no slouch.
As I said in the last post, I’ve opened up an online T-shirt shop at www.pokertease.biz. It has clever (IMO) sayings about poker and I think many players will enjoy the sentiments. Well, the ones wearing the shirts will enjoy it, their opponents, not so much.
I have guys working outside my house replacing bad fascia and soffits and painting and scraping and generally sprucing things up a bit. It’s not particularly shocking about how much needs to be done, the house was vacant for some time and quite neglected even prior to it’s vacancy, so nature does take over fairly quickly. I’m excited about the facelift, it just feels weird watching someone else work on my house. I’m supposed to be that dude. A few months from now, I will be right back at it. Can’t wait.
Poker, poker, poker, poker. That’s what I’m doing while I’m off. I’ve already set the bar at profiting 2k during my off time. I didn’t really base the number on anything, I just pulled it out of my …, ya know. But now it has been said and that is what I’m going for. Wish me luck.
I hope that this catches most people back up to my current state of affairs. See you at the tables, if you play. If you have anything you want to talk about feel fre to call, email, or comment. I’ve got time.
