All Night and Day Sickness
Morning sickness is a lie! or at least it is for Kayla.
At first Kayla was feeling bad in the mornings, than it stately escalated
to throwing up in the mornings, and than
over the last two weeks, she gets maybe two good hours of not feeling sick in the evening.
She's been feeling sick just about all day.
After the first trimester its supposed to get better
for her. This weekend she was limited to a shot-glass of power aid and crackers.
Its been doing really well for her so far,
so long as she relaxes and gives herself time to digest.
Today was Kayla's first day back to work after taking last week out sick.
The smells associated with the bakery, and even worse the smells
of the customers get to her
real bad. As does the go go pace of her job. She didn't keep any food down
tell after work today. I'm thinking its a combination of work stress, and
too quickly standing and getting busy after eating.

Whats Really Up Next?
Finally I can inform all you interneters. Kayla and I are expecting, and we've already got names picked out.
I cant wait to have a little Son or Daughter to teach all the little nothings of day to day life.
It's going to be an adventure!

Whats up Next?
As we all know its a new year, and twenty ten sounds futuristic to me.
This year is set to bring us a few "historic" events I'm pretty stolked for;
Tiberian Twilight (C&C4) is due out in March, & Zelda Wii 2 is due for X-Mas
2010, The Last Year of the Space Shuttle

In space we have entered an exciting new frontier,
But the U.S.A. will be relying on other nations
once we lose launch capability for a period as the Shuttle Retires and the
Ares passes its tests.
I think a blow to our technical superiority is real necessary at this time.
The shuttles retirement was inevitable and on the horizon for NASA.
The new replacement is a much more conservative, disposable space capsule
much like the Apollo capsule used for years.
Id like to suggest the
step backwards was encouraged by the economics of rocket launches,
a reusable space ship is just not possible with our current materials.
Every Space Shuttle would be stripped down and practically rebuilt
every landing, While the Russians where able to build countless Space Stations and help
us to construct a multi-national station, using their same rockets and capsules
from the Moon race.
Russian Soyuz Space Capsule
Even today the outdated but functional Soyuz capsules are used
as lifeboats for the ISS. With any luck the Ares rocket and its Orion capsule
will be all that is needed for our Space efforts until
we are ready to shoot for Mars.
Orion Space Capsule
and Europe will likely be left in charge of deliveries to the ISS after 2010,
As our last five shuttle launches are scheduled to deliver by the end of the year.
Once the Ares and Orion are complete, we should have a safer more economical
way to reach the stars. One element of design I find highly practical about
these old module design spacecraft, is how the heat shield remains hidden
inside the craft until it separates for reentry. Unlike our retiring
Shuttle who wears its venerable shielding all across its belly.
