ex machina

oh, chicago construction, let me count the ways i hate thee.

if you've ever been to chicago you know that it suffers from stupendously obnoxious traffic congestion on the best of days. and now that the dan ryan, the busiest road in Illinois, is undergoing self described "drastic lane reductions" and every...single...toll..booth...area is being ripped apart for open road tolling construction, well, it's like a perfect storm of traffic jam suckitude which makes an already very long trip almost unbearably longer. and yes, i know the city recommends that you avoid the ryan, but i gambled and lost, big time.

hi. ho. good thing we're not moving back to chicago; i don't miss the 3+ hour daily commutes one iota.

beth m: " You could have stopped for a potty break. Luca, Mauja, Carter and Odin would have had fun (oh, and the adults too!)! We'll chat once you're settled!
Happy Trails!"

we'll keep that in mind next time we're passing through!

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
