I played in a free poker tournament last night. I played pretty tight. So tight that the guy next to me actually noticed: "I wish I had your patience. When you bet, I'm gonna get out of the way." I was waiting for premium hands, which didn't come. That is, until I had about 4,000 in chips left about 1.5 hours in. I got pocket kings; this is one of those premium hands I was waiting for. But by this time a was in a loser's mindset, always willing to fold or check; it didn't even hit me that pocket kings were very good and I should have been able to tell that no one else had anything. Rather than do the right thing by betting or raising, I just checked or called. I won the pot, but I didn't earn enough chips to hold on much longer. I've got a lot to learn before I'm any good, I suppose.

My son, Henry Thomas Brooks, is due to be born on 19 July, but he may come in only a couple weeks. We'll have to wait and see.

I'm so excited about being a father! :-D I'm sure he's going to be a cute little guy, and he's going to be so much fun!

House

I've forgotten to post about this until now, but my wife and I are going to be proud homeowners very soon. :-)

We got a great deal. I can't wait to get in there and make it our own.

Day of Joy

Yesterday, I found out some of the best news of my life. Andrea and I are expecting a baby next July. It was awesome news, but there was some worry. I still hadn't been permanently hired and Andrea just gave her two-week's notice, which means our insurance through her work would be ending soon.

Today, I got probably the second best news of my life, and it makes yesterday's news even better. My boss told me that they are ready to make me an offer tomorrow. That is such a huge relief, because it's going to mean getting insurance that's even better than what we were getting through Andrea's work and it's going to cover the pregnancy.

This is just an awesome day. :-D
