Thrown for a Loop

Sorry about the lack of postage guys. No, not stamps, but my inability to throw up some good blogs while I was on vacation. I of course had planned to write some sweet blogs to automatically post while we were gone, but that obviously didn't happen. FAIL. One BIG issue with being such a routine kind of a guy is that when my routine gets thrown off, everything else suffers as well. I hate that those who actually look forward to reading these things every day faithfully checked in only to find a big fat nada. To the four of you who actually come to this blog daily and enjoy reading the garble that I put on "paper" - I sincerely apologize and I promise to try and be better the next time my routine gets thrown for a loop.

I guess the best thing to do to get back on track is just to catch you guys up on what's been going on...

- Every single year my family goes to Rocky Point, Mexico for what I like to call the annual family reunion. Now, I'm not sure if you can call it a reunion since 90% of us see each other at least once a month, but saying "reunion" just makes it seem more official. The family has been going down there every year for the last 32 years. This year there were 42 of us, so when I say family, I mean BIG FAMILY. We actually had to rent two houses this year because we had a few additions due to my cousins wedding. Her and her now husband Matt have been dating for over 10 years and finally decided to "take the plunge" and tie the knot. It was nice having some of Matt's family there and also some cousins that usually can't make the trip were there because of the wedding. As always, it was a great time down in Mexico!

- Even though I was thrown from my routine, I still managed to get three treatments in every day I was there but one. The day that I only got two treatments in was the day we had a trip away from the house for a snorkeling adventure. Swimming around the ocean and breathing through that little tube actually proved to be a pretty good treatment based on the mucus I fed some fish with (eww, I know). Actually, it was pretty funny when Mandi first put on her snorkeling gear - she put on her mask and stuck the breathy thing in her mouth, took one breath and said, "Whoa, I feel like you". Hahaha, I love her.

- One thing we did manage to get on the blog was a poll about Peanut's sex. We still don't know whether we're having a boy or a girl, but we wanted to get your guy's take on it based on everything you've seen or just your gut feeling. We actually get the official results today, but it's not too late to vote. You can find the poll in the top left hand corner of this page. Go ahead and take a stab at it. As of the time I'm writing this, girl has the lead with 60% of the vote.

Well, just a little catch up blog for you guys. If you have any questions about anything, please don't hesitate to ask and tune back in tomorrow to see what sex Peanut is. Thanks for bearing with me while I was out of the loop!!
