Before trashing I took a picture of them to document their wear. These pants have been great travel companions and have visited many places with me including: Yellowstone, Reno, Sacramento, the Bay, Phoenix, Atlanta, New Orleans, Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Salt Lake City, and Yosemite...just to name a few.
Goodbye red pajamas, you will be missed.

Nurse: I've been fertilizing at your farm but everything still seems to keep dying
PCA: I have been so busy that I have had a couple of crops die lately
Nurse: Well, when I know I have a busy weekend or something I just plant 3 day crops and then I don;t have a problem
KT (interjects): Yep, thats what I do, I planted some cabbage this morning so I have four days before they die
Nurse (excited): You farm too?
KT: Yes, I actually just harvested some rice about 3 hours ago.
PCT: Do you have a stable yet?
KT: I'm working on it but it's not done. I need a bunch of harnesses
Nurse: Same here, I need 4 or 5 and some wooden planks
Mom: Oh, I hope we just found some new neighbors.
Statistics: Born 2/21/10 Weighed 8.36 pounds, 22 inches long. We are spending are postpartum time in room 122.
What a different experience than Sydney's birth. This is the first time the Evans crew didn't take over the waiting room for hours. Becca and Mom were sick (Mom made it for the birth, Becca didn't and we missed her terribly!) and because the labor was so odd nobody was here hanging out at all. Actually, now that I am thinking back on this I am kind of surprised since it was a Sunday but I didn't see any of the boys until after she was born. Besides David and I, Mom, Rachel and Laura (barely made it) were present for her birth. Rachel and Laura did a great job of taking pictures. I'll post a picture of mom in her mask later in the week.
For those interested, here are the labor details:
*Water broke at 2:40AM at home
*Went to the hospital, barely had any contractions all day
*Pitocin was given at 2:00PM
*Contractions started being painful around 3:45PM
*Epidural was given between 5:00 and 5:30PM
*She was born at 6:20PM

Two interesting notes:
(1) They had one at the time James scored (sudden death) but the refferees didn't know it was sudden death. The other team scored and it wasn't until they were preparing for penalty kicks that someone whipped out their Blackberry and showed the rules to the referres. NICE!
(2) James scored with 3 minutes and 22 seconds left in the overtime period

Serial Numbers: (As defined at about.com) A serial number is a unique, identifying number or group of numbers and letters assigned to an individual piece of hardware or software. A serial number for a piece of software is not usually the same as a product key but they are sometimes used interchangeably. You've probably seen serial numbers before. Nearly every piece of the computer has a serial number including your monitor, keyboard, mouse and sometimes even your entire computer system as a whole. Internal components such as hard drives, optical drives and motherboards also contain serial numbers.
Mac Address: (As defined by Geek.com) A Media Access Control address or MAC address is a unique code assigned to every piece of hardware that connects to the Internet. Internet capable phones, Network Interface Cards for desktop or notebook computers, Wireless Access Cards, and even some memory cards are among the devices that are assigned MAC addresses.
When a manufacturer creates a network capable piece of hardware they will assign the MAC address which will usually begin with a code that is tied to the manufacturer. The MAC address will be unique to every device, even two devices of the same type.
Unique Identifier: (As defined by Intertwingly.net) A unique identifier is a piece of data that unequivocally identifies something. On the Web, a URI is used as a unique identifier. A 128-bit GloballyUniqueIdentifier (GUID) is also common for software.

Laura remembered how much i liked them and contacted Paul Gavin to get me a painting for my birthday. The most amazing part of this story is that Paul Gavin remembered us! He remembered that I had a baby (Sydney was 3 months) and remembered how much we liked the paintings. So on my 35th birthday, Laura surprised me with an original Paul Gavin painting. It is gorgeous and it makes me very happy every time i see it!!!!

Today I was able to experience part of this first hand. Here's how the conversation went:
Mom: MSNBC is my homepage, I keep seeing who the medal winners are before they come on air
Kim: I would hate that, if I know who won there is no point in watching
Mom: The US did good on something they weren't supposed to be good at
Mom: Something they weren't supposed to win at it
Kim: What was that
Mom: Well, I'm not going to tell you anymore
Kim: This is going on the blog

I am very happy with the new office thus far. Everything that has been put in there has been very well organized and labeled. The only things left to do is to replace the ladybug closet door knobs and swap the two closets. The closet swapping is in progress but there is alot of crap in the closet in Sydney's room. That will be an after-Brooke-arrives project.
The office has taken on a beach theme (the old office had this as well) and the focal point is the gorgeous painting Laura gave me for my birthday last year. (I will post another blog on this because it deserves it's own blog). The organization has already made me more productive when working in there. It is currently a little oasis, lets hope it stays that way.Here are a few pictures:

David thought the pastrami was a little dry, I thought it was good but Tops has probably double the pastrami in the sandwich itself (probably a good thing considering the heartburn observation above). Overall, everyone seemed to like it and we would suggest a trip if you are in the area.

We are having to pair down any clutter and I have been throwing out alot of stuff. Tonight, I ran onto a snack of cards I had been saving since 2006. As I went through them, I couldn't believe that I saved some of this stuff. One particular card, caught my eye, why in the world would I have saved the CHW IT Christmas card from 2006? I was however amused by the card. Today, season 20 of Survivor starts. The card reminds me of the Survivor slogan which is: Outwit, Outplay, Outlast. I look at this and I certainly can tell who the Sole Survivor is..................next stop the Amazing Race with her BFF.
P.S. The card has now been disposed of

I worked just about all day today and am planning on working tomorrow as well. It may not be as easy as it was today though since I do most of my work through my cell phone. Tonight, David had two items that were critical on his plate: (1) Get the newborn clothes out of the attic so we could throw them in the wash (2) Get the carrier and base down from the attic so that she could come home from the hospital with us. At around 8:20, his two tasks were diverted for an urgent request. What could be more urgent that the two above items? How about a brand new Droid that had fallen into the bathtub full of water.....yup, and it wasn't a splish splash, it was fully submerged. Last text was to Queen B.
So now, the 38 week pregnant, Hot IT Chick, that doesn't have a home phone has no cell phone. (David is blow drying the phone, this worked once when I had a mishap in Phoenix with the Pearl, I am holding out a wee bit of hope)
Oh by the way, her name is no longer Katherine, we are 99.9% sure it is Brooke and no Brooke was not on the list.
