Wherein Announcements are Made

2010 is going to be a huge year for me. In some manners of reckoning, it will be the largest I’ve had since I started having them, yea those many years ago.

My wife and I are looking for a home, and will hopefully be in one during 2010. As corollary to that I will enter into the first actual debt of my life, which I don’t relish. I plan to have finished a (crappy) first novel and at least one (hopefully pretty awesome) screenplay. I hope to continue trying to improve and advance my career. I plan on losing at least 10 pounds.

And I will become a father on or around June 4, 2010.

Starting Wednesday, this blog will consist of posts about impending fatherhood. I’ll be sharing thoughts and experiences and hopefully providing a point of reference and commiseration for anyone else who has kids, is planning to have kids or wants to know what another dude is feeling about the whole experience. It’s my plan to be as honest and irreverent about this process as I try to be about most everything else.

Without further ado, the pictures. Bask in their glory. I, for one, welcome our new infant overlord.

    Yay! Excitement abounds! We are so thrilled for both you and Janelle. You have quite a to do list posted, Michael. Good luck with all of it. I’m looking forward to witnessing the progress.
