Baby to be update

I went into the doctor's last thursday but someone else was in labour (lucky) so I had to reschedule my appt for friday.

On friday we scheduled the c-section for Oct 30 or Nov 2, the hospital has to call me to confirm, it depends on how many other ladies are having babies at the same time.

Q wants the 2nd because it turns out Oct 30 is considered Devil's Night. I looked it up to find this:

Devil's Night is a name associated with October 30, the night before Halloween. It is related to "mischief night" practiced in other parts of the United States and the world.

Devil's Night in Detroit dates as early as the 1930s. Traditionally, youths in Detroit engaged in a night of criminal behavior, which usually consisted of acts of vandalism (such as egging, soaping, or TP'ing). These were almost exclusively acts of petty vandalism, causing little to no property damage.
However, in the early 1970s the vandalism escalated to more devastating acts, such as
arson. This primarily took place in the city, but surrounding suburbs were often affected. Property owners unable to sell in the rapidly declining housing market would use this night as an opportunity to burn down their homes, collect the insurance money, and claim that an arsonist was at fault.
The crimes became more destructive in Detroit's inner-city neighborhoods, and included hundreds of acts of arson and vandalism every year. The destruction reached a peak in the mid- to late-1980s, with more than 800 fires set in 1984, and 500 to 800 fires in the three days and nights before Halloween in a typical year. (

I had no idea about this, Q said that he celebrated it when he was a kid in Ontario. The vandel!

That's all the news as of right now, my camera is at the camera doc's so it may be a bit before new pics!
