Home Alone The Dad Version

Good morning. A morning post? What gives?

Well that is how it goes when the house is empty and there is not a baby sleeping in a swing next to your computer.

Yep, night 1 of being on my own went okay. I survived the quiet.

I do miss the fam jam based on the following evidence.

  1. I have thought I heard the kids at least three times.
  2. I did not know what to do with myself between 5:30-8 pm.
  3. I watched the 10 pm news just because that is what we usually do.
  4. I woke up thinking I heard the baby.
  5. I woke up at 6:38 am just like I do every morning.
  6. I started making a bottle before making my tea (okay I made that one up).

Needless to say, it is weird being in this house without the wife and boys. It just does not seem right.

I heard they made it to Toronto in one piece and the boys were pretty well-behaved. I only got bullets via text but I am sure I will here more later.

I did manage to sleep in past 8 am which was nice. It was also nice to just lay there and not have to start planning the day and what we were going to do.

I have a list but it is pretty relaxed and not very important. The few things I actually need to do will take 10 minutes.

What is interesting about blogging in the morning was I got to go back to my roots. Scanning the news for what was hot and doing a post up that will hit it and drive traffic.

I did a photoshop of Rob Ford for Cuzoogle and it is already taking off. Within seconds of posting, there was dozens of people on the site checking it out. I guess I still got it. I just need the time. Check it out if you want.

Time to get the day going and hopefully the weather will warm up.

Last year on the May long weekend, it was as beautiful as Halifax had ever seen and I was locked down at home with my toilet training buddy.

This year, I am as free as a bird and it is basically November.

Oh well.
