Wesley is now 4 weeks old and this month has gone by so quickly! His sleeping has varied but it’s about 3 hours at a time, which is pretty good. I realize that Kate is the one that is suffering the most sleep wise as I’m at work at night and when I get home she lets me sleep. I’m sure once Kate goes back to work there will be further adjustments that will be necessary.
He’s such a handsome boy! I love his facial expressions, yes I know they are mostly involuntary. He has this one where he looks so concerned. We’ve taken him a couple places he has been so good. Kate’s friend Andrea came over the snag a couple photos and there was some really nice ones but the one above is my favorite!
In non-Wesley related news:
Canaan took 4th place at the Boy Scout’s Pinewood Derby. Not too shabby! We found a car design on line and had it cut out at a pack meeting. Bob helped hallowing out the bottom to make room for the weights and he cut the head off a large bolt that made up good portion of it. Canaan painted the car himself. I wasn’t able to go because Wesley was being born. But I’m hoping to watch the video that Jessica recorded of it.
Canaan also just started his second year of Gardiner Cal Ripken Minor League Baseball, he’s on the blue team coached by CJ Elliott and they have adopted the nickname the Blue Diamonds.
Addison is doing well in dance. Her recital is on May 16th if anyone wants to go tickets are just $15, Money due by April 23rd.
The three of us took a day trip on April 14th to Marshall Point Light in Port Clyde. It was such a beautiful day and the weather was just perfect. It was nice walking on the rocky shore and I got some fantastic photos. There was no one else there until it was time to leave. So glad we went, Kate was itching to get out of the house and I was itching for a nice day drive.
We stopped for a slice of pie at Moody’s eating it in the van so as not to disturb the sleepy guy in the back. A quick stop at Morse’s sauerkraut where we found the delicious 7 year aged Old Quebec cheese that we had on our honeymoon. The $20 a pound price tag deterred us from buying it, but we at least know where we can get it now. We got a pound of kraut for Kate’s mom and I got some sour mustard pickles. Kate said it really reminded her of The Mouse Trap, a place she worked at in Kentucky. I too was surprised what they offered inside, especially considering its location!
I recently submitted a story to Level Best Books for their annual anthology. I also have one that I submitted last September to another anthology that I should be hearing from anytime now. I’m not going to lie I’m getting a bit anxious having not heard from them in so long. I’m really hoping one of these 2 stores gets accepted.
I have a new blog that I started, and I even paid the $12 to register the domain name. It’s called the Wrestling Insomniac and it’s all about wrestling. As you all know I love professional wrestling and I really want to be involved somehow. Writing this blog entertains me and is fun for me. If something comes it, then awesome, if it doesn’t then that’s cool too! It’s been up and running since March 1st and I’ve already gotten almost 1000 views so it’s a start. www.thewrestlinginsomniac.com

If I haven’t mentioned it yet, let me please mention that I Fat Boy Drive In opened March 19th and I had my first whoper burger of the season on the 22nd. I’m a magnet guy as far as I like to collect magnets of places that I have been, I don’t want people buying me magnets. That way I can look at my fridge and me reminded of the fun places I’ve been.
|Not the current sign but the basis for the magnet, I like this sign better than the current|
Anyhow Fat Boy has never had a magnet, t-shirt, hats, bottle opener (I bought one), prints, a key chain flashlight this year, but never magnets. While standing in line for my burger I posted a photo on Instagram and while exploring the hash tag fatboy I came across people holding these cool looking magnets of the Fat Boy sign.
So I messaged on of the people who had one and long and the short is, turns out a local artist did a painting of the sign and then made the high quality magnets out of them. Really professional and was selling them on her etsy page for $5, sold! So right there in line I went to her page, ordered and paid for the magnet with pay pal. It now adorns my fridge. If you would like your own here is the link to her page. Here's the link to her etsy page: Fat Boy Sign Magnet
Speaking of burgers, Elevation Burger has opened an Augusta location and even though I have yet to sample there delicious burgers, I will be soon, very soon
That’s all for now, take care!
