Paternity Leave: Day 28

September 1, 2014

This post is coming rather late, but I’ll explain why later. Let’s go through things chronologically.

Got up, got out of bed, dragged a comb across my head. The day began with a trip to the optometrist for Megan to get her prescription updated and pick out some new frames. Pics of that when they’re done in a couple weeks. The whole ordeal took about two and a half hours, so the three of us went for a late lunch afterwards.

We went back home after lunch and Megs went for a bike ride to break in her new bike. After she got back, I dragged my bike out for a ride. We can’t ride together without arranging for a baby sitter, so we each did solo tours.

For dinner we had some lovely chicken soup from the freezer that our friends Angela and Austin had given us some time back. It was delicious!

So, why am I posting this on the afternoon of Day 29? Because after dinner, Megs took the reigns of baby-guarding, and I went out for Karaoke with Mikey, Asia, Neil, and Amanda! I did four songs over the course of the night: Franz Ferdinand – Take Me Out, Cake – Never There, Frank Sinatra – My Way, and Cake – I Will Survive. Didn’t do too well at the Franz Ferdinand, but the others I was passable at.

After last call at the bar, we went back to Mikey’s to hang out and play party games. Suddenly it was 4 a.m. and I really figured I should head home. This is why I didn’t blog last night. It’s my blog and I’ll be tardy if I want to! Here’s me and Mikey back at his place:

Buddies!

Buddies!

I’ll post a proper Day 29 later tonight.
