It's that quiet, reflective time in the morning in between the "run around and get ready for the day" and "wake up the baby and prep for daycare". It's a new type of time allotment I'm not quite used to yet - maybe it's reflection time on how crazy things have been this year. New stuff at work, the baby - this year is officially one of the most "interesting" years to date. The company I work for being bought earlier this year - the birth of my little girl, adjusting to being a Dad, taking a step back at work and learning some Java-Fu, then cycling off to "yet another thing" (throw in a product release or two for good measure).
To throw more gas on the fire - my wife and I are in the process of buying our first house. We're on the post-inspection-wtf stage right now. I guess I just thought there wasn't enough going on in my life, so I needed to throw in more costs, lawyers and other stress.
It's been one crazy year. I think next year I'm going to try to calm things down a bit, although I'm already drafting plans to rebuild the existing deck.
