Ok, Ok, I know....I slipped off of the blog writing radar. I've still been reading them. Since my last post I have done nothing but mourn the loss of the Super Bowl. Not really, I got over it pretty quick. Life did not allow me to get to hung up on it. I have no real excuses other than my brain has had no creative blogging thoughts and I've been a bit busy. Work, school, life and oh yeah...a baby coming. One good thing for you readers out there (all two of you) in about 5 days I will have a whole new arsenal of blogging material..."Life as a Father". I know what you are thinking, "Scary!!!". Need not to be. I have not read any books, I have watched a video or two, I attended two classes at the hospital, I went to the pediatrician visit, and made most (not all) of Lisa's dr. appointments and I was once a baby - what is there to know. (before you come at me, I'm being quite sarcastic). Good for all of us is that Lisa has read the books, talked to people, been in delivery rooms, changed a diaper or two (yep, forgot to mention that, Everett's will be my first!!) I will not say I am nervous, but more excited. Excited to take on a responsibility bigger than me. Excited to adjust priorities. Excited to see Lisa as a mother. Excited to share this life with another. I'm excited to go on a father son campout, excited to watch sports together. The list can go on.... I know I will mess up sometimes, I know I will not always have the answers. But one thing I do know is that I will do my very best to be the Father and Husband that my family needs. And excited to give you more blog content to read.
Thanks for allowing me to say things I don't always take the time to express. You will be the first (well, I mean besides my family and close friends) to know when little Everett joins us!
My name is James Burgess. I have a beautiful wife of a little over 8 years named Lisa and a baby on the way. We are both busy with work and school but find as much time as we can to be involved in church and hang out with our great friends. I hope the things you read here will inspire, educate, or just entertain!!
