2 Days and Counting

Still nothing to report.
Mrs. Shife is under the impression that she will be pregnant forever.
I assure her that not is possible.
She just tells me to suck it because I am the one who got her pregnant.
Good times.

In other news, I think it is safe to say grammar is dying a slow, painful death. As I was running errands today, I was amazed and appalled at the misplaced apostrophes. People seem to think if a word is plural or has an S at the end, then it needs to have an apostrophe. Walk-in's instead of walk-ins; Fee's instead of fees; Fridays instead of Fridays. Horrible stuff out there. Here is my favorite grammar lesson: Capitalization is the difference between helping your Uncle Jack off a horse and helping your uncle jack off a horse.
Have a great rest of your Friday.


When you misuse an apostrophe in the Shifley household, you get the business from Tank.



I will persevere. I will keep moving forward. I will be the stream.

Hahahaha. I like that lesson. I agree. People don't seem to know what grammar is anymore.

I feel deeply for Mrs. Shife. It does feel like forever toward the end. Thinking good thoughts for all of you.

Mrs. Shife has my sympathy, and I'm sending well wishes for a speedy and good delivery!

As it gets closer I start holding my breath when I read your posts. Breathe Kden....

Have a relaxing weekend, it could be your last peaceful one for awhile.

I remember the agony of waiting and I remember feeling it would never end. But my lad came on the due date which I was told was unusual. Take heart, Mrs Shife.

Agree about grammar, it's so bad I often suspect my own.

Apostrophes are even just arbitrarily thrown into names now. It's horrifying, and likely some people just slept through that part of English class.
We're still thinking of you guys, and hoping it's soon.
