The Silly Adventures of... and Kathy

I've been absent from our blog for a little while, and I thought I'd change that this morning. I'm sure it won't last, but at least I'll try.

Kathy's given most of the updates on me, I think. I'm working as a server at a wine bar (which is sort of funny, because I'm in seminary and most wouldn't put those two together. Add to this the fact that I found out about the job through the seminary. Definitely not many Southern Baptists around). I am nearly done with my first year of seminary - just a couple weeks of finals and I'm home free. My former study room has been transformed by my lovely wife into just about the most spectacular baby room I've ever seen. But, then again, you probably already knew all that.

Here's something you didn't know: last night, we thought we were going to have the baby!

Driving home from dinner, Kathy's stomach started tightening up intermittently. It was making her uncomfortable, but it didn't seem strange or anything. When we got home it happened again, and then again a little while later. I ran into the other room to get the books we have about labor (if we were going to have a baby that night, it was time for a serious and quick cram session), and pulled out my watch to see if there was any consistency to what was going on in Kathy's belly. After about 15-20 minutes, nothing happened, so I put the watch away (though the books are still on the living room floor). It was a bummer, but somewhat of a relief. We still have to pre-register at the hospital (seriously, that's what I was thinking every time I looked down at my watch!). It would have been nice to become a father last night/this morning, but, Lord willing, I'll get to take all my finals before Baby Locke decides to grace us with his (or her!) presence.
