Hi I'm back.
I started off at 1000+ items behind in my google reader, and I'm down to 337. If I don't comment on your awesome blog posts from this last week, forgive me.
In the words of Inigo Montoya-
Let me explain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up.
Our trip was long and intensive. I might blog about it or just leave all the details for your imaginations. It included snow chains in the Sierras, staying a night in San Francisco (very nice place!) and finding an apartment in 2 days. I spent the last 6 days unpacking, cleaning and sitting around for Internet. We called the ISP last Saturday and they couldn't come out until today! They don't deserve the $99 installation fee.
Still on my list of things to do:
Buy a couch.
And a desk.
And a set of table and chairs for the kitchen (we've been using a cardboard moving box).
And a bike for McKay.
Get Margaret into a routine again.
With library story time, perhaps?
And a regular playgroup?
Join a CSA (sadly, we don't have a yard)
Get a new driver's license and register to vote in CA.
Register the car
Get car/renter's insurance out here.
Get health insurance.
Balance the checkbook (eek).
Buy a bigger car seat for Margaret so the baby can have hers.
Check out that yarn store 2 blocks away! (Yipee!)
Prepare for the baby.
Blog a few posts that have been sitting in my head for the past week.
Oh- and I just discovered that people consider 36 weeks to be 9 months*. I always went off the actual months. Margaret's "due date" was March 8, so I was 9 months on March 8, 8 months on February 8, 7 months on January 8, etc. Have I been doing it wrong? Was I pregnant for almost 11 months with Margaret, then? That doesn't make any sense to me. Of course, this is all null and void for this pregnancy with the seasons. :) Good-bye confusing months!
*I'm not 36 weeks, btw. That would put this baby due BEFORE the solstice and this baby is due in the summer, which is clearly AFTER the solstice.
