T-4 days to go...

...until I get to be an uncle again...

Actually that's the upper limit for things. The little one might make an appearance before then, but it's quite possible that she'll take her time. It sounds like Angel is quite ready to stop sharing her body with the adorable little parasite :). Any day now and Ruben will actually be a father... Very strange.

So today I ended up not working on car stuff (thanks to my dad) and I instead did some junkyarding and I helped Ruben move a bunch of things from the garage in his old house to the garage in his new house... The old lady who's renting his old house is really depressing. She's hit that stage in life where she can't really live on her own anymore and her son found her a nice house near where he lives. She's been living there for a day and she's already gotten lost once (fortunately a helpful neighbor found her and brought her back). Yeesh. Personally, I find senility and dementia to be the most frightening aspects of growing old. I guess it's one thing for your body to go kaput, but when your mind goes.. well, what's left?

Eh. poor lady. She was talking to us and saying things like "You take care of your kids all your life and next thing you know they lock you up like a prisoner." She's really having issues with this new arrangement. Oh, and she also has 3 yippy dogs. 2 are kinda nice and you can tell they are a bit starved for attention, but the third one is insane... and stupid. It kept trying to nip my hand through the chain link fence and it kept biting the fence and then yelping in pain. It did this like 3 times. Heck, the first couple of times it did it, I wasn't entirely sure what had happened. The third time I just rolled my eyes and gave up trying to be friends with it.

So, yeah. That was most of my day. after that, I came home, watched some TV and Dave came over to watch the season finale of Six Feet Under. We talked about girls and life and stuff (as usual) reminisced about the good ol' days in high school and then he went home to attend to his lady-friend. After that, I watched some TV, baked some bread, and just hung out winding down after a tiring day.

Surprisingly enough, this turned out to be a really nice weekend (despite the unpleasant beginning).

I'm actually looking forward to work tomorrow (how scary is that?).
