5 Thing Thursday

1) For those of you with kids already, how many pictures reside in your wallet, office, cell phone of your child?  For those of you with kids on the way, same applies, but of ultrasound pics.

2) Are you in the fantasy football league?  How are you doing?

3)  Favorite meal?  Drink?

4 and 5 are you.

Re: 5 Thing Thursday

  • 1) For those of you with kids already, how many pictures reside in your wallet, office, cell phone of your child?  For those of you with kids on the way, same applies, but of ultrasound pics.

    I don't have an office, so that doesn't apply.  I don't keep pictures in my wallet because my job is physical enough that during the summer months the pictures would potentially be destroyed by sweat.  Cell phone on the other hand has quite a few pictures of my 22 month old and one pic of an ultrasound scan of my son on the way.

    2) Are you in the fantasy football league?  How are you doing?

    Yes, I'm in the league.  4th place (actually tied for 3rd) in the West.  I'm expecting to lose this week because both starting RBs are injured and I'm using waiver wire pickups to fill the holes.

    3)  Favorite meal?  Drink?

    I have multiple options for food... pizza, a good lasagna, but if I had to pick one, and no offense to those who may be vegetarian or vegan, but a good medium steak with baked potato.   As far as drink goes, if we are talking alcoholic, I'm not much of a drinker, but when I do drink I prefer whiskey sours.  If we are talking just every day drink, I'd probably go Sprite or a good strawberry lemonade.

    4) As of about 4 days or so ago, I can now feel my 2nd son moving in my wife's belly.  It isn't huge yet to where my son can feel it yet, but when I talk to my wife's belly, it usually gets him going enough to where I can feel it faintly.  My wife confirms that it is him and not just a rumbling tummy or her heartbeat (yes, you can feel it in her belly currently).

    5) My son turns 22 months old today.  This has been by far the fastest 22 months of my life and it is so amazing to see what he's capable of doing and how much he's grown in that short amount of time.

  • 1) For those of you with kids already, how many pictures reside in your wallet, office, cell phone of your child?  For those of you with kids on the way, same applies, but of ultrasound pics.

    I don't have any pictures of ultrasounds on my phone or at the office.  I don't anticipate the lack of photos to change until after the birth or maybe late in the pregnancy.

    2) Are you in the fantasy football league?  How are you doing?

    Yes I am and I don't want to talk about.  Yes it's that bad.

    3)  Favorite meal?  Drink?

    I make a killer meatloaf.  Paired with some cheesy vegetables it is awesome.  Drink would have to be beer.  Preferably something hoppy.

    4)  We had our first consultation with the OB last Friday.  She ordered a "mercy" ultrasound for my wife.  That was the week in the last pregnancy where we had the loss.  Everything was great.  Baby was wiggling around on the screen.  It was cool to see.  Our OB also revealed what we suspected, she's also pregnant.  She is due in January and will be out through March.  She'll be back by May when our due date is.  While she is out our appointments will be with the other doctors in the office.  It will be good to get to know them in case she is unavailable for the big moment.

    5)  This weekend I am doing a 24 hour gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network hospitals.  I haven't been sleeping well all week and I am getting concerned that I am going to start the marathon dead tired.  That won't bode well for completion.

    phone there are quite a few.  probably 30.  don't really carry a wallet, so none.

    2) Are you in the fantasy football league?  How are you doing?

    depends on the league.  our league from this board I am tied for last.  another free league I am .500, and my league from work with the entry fee, I'm 4th of 12 - so still in the money

    3)  Favorite meal?  Drink?

    I'm all about a burger.  the more cheese and other flavors the better.  hold the veggies, they just interfere.

    I'm kind of a beer snob - but without knowing anything about beer.  I hate the taste of cheap beer.  I live 25 miles from New Glarus, so love me some spotted cow.  a place near my hometown (by Lake Superior) has a few great brews as well.

    4 )  playoff time for me.  I am officiating a game on Saturday... winner goes to state.  then next week I have a state game.  the following weekend I'm heading to St Louis for a huge nat'l tournament to close out my season.

     5) Saturday is also a 5k race...  hoping to do it in 22 minutes.  I'm really excited to start doing more races again in the fall.  I feel I can get back to 7 minute miles once the spring rolls around.  My new goal is to do a race a month... 5k or above.

    there are two motivations in sports, which is yours?

    I've always wanted to try New Glarus beers.  Someday I have to actually go to Wisconsin to make that happen!

    I have a few ultrasound pictures in my phone, but I know that the pictures will near the triple digits once the kid is born. 

    2) Are you in the fantasy football league? How are you doing?

    In the league I'm in, I'm 3-3.  Not too shabby. 

    3) Favorite meal? Drink?

    I don't really know how to answer, there's so many things I love.  I'll just say my mom's shepherd's pie, and my mother-in-law's brisket.

    4) We went to South Carolina for my dad's wedding last weekend.  It was great to see my aunts and uncles, and to get to know my new step-mother's family.  Everyone was excited to see my wife, as she's now REALLY showing.  

    5) I got nothin.  I'm just glad the Yankees got swept.

  • 1) I have three framed photos of baby boy in my offiice.  I look at them all the time and smile when I need to be reminded that work is just that, work.

    2) Two leagues.  I am owning this one, and I am on a real nice win streak in my money one after starting 0-2.

    3) I love to grill, so it is between my pork sholder and ribs on the grill.

    4) Golf, family and drinking this weekend for me!

    5) Packer game on Sunday against the Rams.

  • I'm always late with these posts... 

    1. I have about 20 pictures in my phone and thank God...people get angry when they ask to see a picture and you hesitate. I have to basically keep one on the screen at all times. I also have a 30 second video of my son falling asleep while i talk to him that is amazing. It makes my heart happy. No pics in the wallet....I didn't know folks still did that, and I have a maternity pic in the office. But we just got back the pics from my kids newborn shoot....so more pics at my desk, birth announcements going out and framed crap all around the house is soon to come.

    2. Not in a fantasy football league...not really a sports guy. It will be interesting with a son, I want him to try different sports and I want to support him BUT I have absolutely no background in anything but running/track and weight lifting (I have a personal training cert from my college days).

    3. Favorite meal....bar-be-cue, hands down. A huge burger, ribs, chicken all slathered in sauce is perfection.

    4. Kid just turned a month old today...everyone says time flies...I'm waiting cause my kid is a lot of sleeping, screaming and eating. I love him and he is awesome, but when I dangle a toy in front of him he looks at me like I'm super stupid. I guess I'm ready to play.

    5. We brought out two dogs back home last week and they are adjusted to the change. Every time the kid yells they rush over...it's sweet. Now if they could just change a diaper...

    I'm so sorry to impose, but I couldn't help but ask what game (if it's a video game, that is) were you playing? (proud gamer chick here! :) ) If it's a table-top/casino game, I'll just butt out! :)

    What happened to your FF team this week? Half your team didn't even show up to play.

    This week was the first time that I have ever forgotten to get my players with byes replaced. Did it my serious money league too, and that one really stung.

     

    Kids......

    I have to start setting a calendar reminder to myself that the NFL weeks starts on Thursdays now!

  • in one of my leagues my opponent forgot to change 4 players on byes this week.  I'm still losing by one.  thankfully I have two players tonight... but I was this close to losing to half a team!

    I did both during the marathon.  Video game time was split between Gears of War 3 and Borderlands 2.

    Nice! I'm looking forward to BL2. My husband and I just finished playing through Dishonored.

    OK. Butting out for reals now. ;)
