We’re back home now, after the post-Christmas trip to the in-laws. It’s good to be back home, but we’re pretty beat. We got home at about 2 in the morning. John even had to drive through an unexpected snow storm.
Theo had is 4 month checkup this morning, so we had to get up and out of the house around 9:00.
And then I went into Boston (well, Cambridge, actually) for my first in-person work meeting since Theo was born. I’ve been having conference calls roughly once a week, and while it’s been nice not having the hellacious commute, it was really great to be at the meeting in person. Phoebe didn’t have daycare, which I’d forgotten about when I said I could be at the meeting, but John was able to stay home with her. I did bring Theo, though. Which was…interesting. (He’ll probably be starting daycare in February, which is the soonest they can take him. I am looking forward to having more time to focus on my work, but at the same time wanting to hold on to this time.)
Anyhow, today ended up being pretty hectic, what with the appointment, the driving, the parking, the meeting, the feeding the meter, the feeding the baby, the changing the diapers, and the changing the parking spaces to avoid getting a ticket. I barely had time to get myself food.
Now I’m sitting here, redenting my preferred sofa cushion at home, and catching up a bit on my web surfing. John is upstairs working. Phoebe is in bed. And Theo is swinging in his swing. I have to say that I missed the swing while we were away at the in-laws. It’s not that Theo spends all his time there, but it does keep him happy (and/or asleep) nearby while my hands are otherwise engaged. Doing things like eating. Or typing.
