Should we outsource our Childcare?

Since Julianne and I will be new at this parenting thing, I would like to solicit your opinions on the following news report. Is this an option we should consider?

I passed my first comprehensive exam! It was the 6 hour on my major field of study - the North American West. That leaves a 4 hour exam on general US history (Dec. 4th), a 2 hour exam on the Mexican-American borderlands (Dec. 19th) and a 2 hour exam on Nazi Germany and the Holocaust (Dec. 19th). That means I am 3/7ths of the way done. Put it this way - I will be a very relieved boy come December 20th when I'm on a plane to Bellingham for Christmas. Phew!

Comps tomorrow!

The moment of truth is upon me! My comprehensive exams start tomorrow!!! I have a 6 hour tomorrow, a 4 hour on Dec. 4th, and a 4 hour on Dec. 18th. I am officially stressed. Ack!

Here's what you can do for me:

1. If you are the religious type, then send up a few hundred prayers tomorrow in my behalf.

2. If you are not the religious type, then just try it out tomorrow for me, and say some prayers on my behalf. If you are dissatisfied with the religious experience, you can go back to being non-religious on Wednesday.

Thanks all. Wish me luck!

Halloween 2007

We got a huge group of people to go to Applebees with us for Halloween. I was going to go as that really infamous Nick Nolte mugshot, but the wig didn't work out. So, I just went as a fat old man. Julianne wore the curly wig and went somewhat countrywestern. not bad for 5 minute costumes. The pictures are at our Photobucket account.
