I’m not bored so much as kind of at a loss for a few days. As I explained to Patrick last night, this is the first fall I won’t be starting some kind of school since I was three years old! I’m still working on the dissertation; in fact, I have a meeting with my advisor today to strategize the fall, conclusion, job search, etc. Obviously when the baby comes, I’ll have much to do and I’ll probably miss this day and yesterday and tomorrow.
We got our pint glass, thanks to some clever engineering by our friends, the POETS. It was one of the best afternoons I’ve spent in a while. People seemed relaxed, the babies behaved, and the pigeons on the patio ate all the food the babies dropped. Moreover, I felt relaxed.
Our previously sweet baby has become a terror! He climbs everything, he stuffs food in his mouth and calls for more before swallowing, he dive bombs our bellies without warning, and all of this is probably because he has finally begun napping at daycare, so he has a lot more energy in the afternoon than he used to.
And on to the game…Baby 2 is due Sept. 2. Any bets on when he’s coming?
