Michael will be returning home soon. I'm sure everyone is as excited as I am. It will be great to have him back in the US, now I just have to hope that he decides to stay in Atlanta. I know much of that decision will be based on a job, which can take you anywhere in this shitty economy. Not to mention the desire to work with the Japanese on some level, which will surely pull him to the West Coast.

Life has gotten busier and busier as Baby A gets closer to delivery. We're pretty much done with the nursery, aside from moving in a small twin bed and replacing a book shelf. This is definitely the home stretch until the deliver, which will be its own crazy event.

I haven't been able to work on projects as much as I would like since coaching has been taking much of my time. We are perennially rained out of our own park so we have to drive to the airport to use the Georgia Soccer Park. It has been a huge hassle that eats up an evening.

My gaming has become sparse and inconsistent. I finished doing EVERYTHING Fallout 3 has to offer, so I have moved on to Mass Effect. It has been a great experience for the 2 hours I have put in. The combat mechanics are weak, but I'm playing it for the RPG aspects and the good story/cinematography. The problem I have with the game is that I can't play it while I am listening to something else, or when Chowning is asleep because the dialog is do important. This has left me wanting a game where I can just shoot things and be done with it. I've also been on a kick of trying to get the most out of the games that I have, so I've been avoiding purchases like Batman: Arkham Asylum, Darksiders and Bioshock 2. Fortunately I have a copy of Bioshock coming in the mail. Since I have been avoiding purchases it means I'm trying to go through and get every achievement for what I've got. So I ordered Bioshock through Goozex to go after the one achievement I am missing. I wasn't a complete idiot, though, and ordered the copy that has Elder Scrolls attached to it. That should hold me off for a while.

Matt will be done with school soon (finally). That means he has to get a job. While Jeremy and he are looking into re-invigorating PlayMotion, there are other things he is looking into. I suspect those other endeavors will take him to the Left Coast. We'll see what happens.

Oh, and fuck Chuka.
