Mac’s first swim.

We had a good weekend up north. On one hand it drives me nuts to not get anything done when I know that I have so much to do at home… on the other hand it’s really nice to just get away for a couple of days and relax. We went to the Blueberry Festival in Ely and spent time with Shawnee’s parents, brother and family. We went for a nice boat ride today on Lake Vermillion – it’s such a nice lake to look at but the bays are very large and the ride gets choppy. So we didn’t make it over to the aptly named “Big Bay.”
We’re going to stop and see Grammy on our way back home, then I have a meeting at the MOA tonight.

Krueger reunion

We had fun today at the reunion – showing off Shawnee’s tummy and the iPhone… You know, to show the ultrasound photos! I couldn’t get a singal in the church hall, so I wasn’t able to show off all of the iPhone’s features… but the photos were enough. At one point, Tim ran off with it to show his wife, but she said he couldn’t have one.

This is a test of my new iPhone blog scripting. It’s a beautiful night here at Collinwood Lake at my parents’ cabin. The camera doesn’t do a very good job with low light – that’s why there is a picture of a dwindling campfire, rather than the fetching Mrs. Krueger.
I’m very impressed with the keyboard -even if I hit the wrong keys, it just knows what I meant and fixes it!

Say hello to “Mac.”

OK, so a lot has happened since I last blogged… I got some more speakers, College Press went direct-to-plate, Apple unveiled an insanely great little product that is going to revolutionize our lives, They Might Be Giants came out with a new album, we are failing miserably at trying to grow a lawn, and… oh, yeah… and we are going to have a baby!!! That’s right, Shawnee is Prego™ (“It’s in there!”).
“Baby Mac” (as named by a certain father-in-law who shall remain nameless) is now 20 (or 21, depending on who you believe) weeks along. We got to see him or her (no, we aren’t going to find out which it is) today through the miracle of ultrasound (…sounds like a movie theater surround-sound technology, doesn’t it? No, just me then. OK, I’m a geek). We also just saw and heard Mac’s heart on Tuesday when we had an ultrasound / fetal-echocardiogram done at the U of M to check out the heart – and pretty much only the heart. The good news is that everything looks, well… good! The cardiologist (in the 12 seconds we saw him) said that everything sounded good… there are no holes in the heart, but there was not enough resolution to check out the valves.

In other news… Hopefully, this will get updated more often, as I’m experimenting with some cool scripts that will allow me to add blog entries on the go… from my iPhone!
