Thanks, everyone, for the nice comments on the last post. It’s good to be reminded that I should make the most of my current ability to nap with wild abandon, but also that I very likely will survive whenever the time comes to be responsible for a wee little creature with half my DNA. I discovered on Saturday that I have another reason why it is seeming more urgent that we add to our family: while at Costco, I impulsively purchased a gigantic tub of Disney-themed animal crackers, and I have no one to share them with. This may end up being a moot point, because there are so many animal crackers that there may still be some left by the time we have a toddler old enough to imbibe with me.
In unrelated news, I have never been a very good note taker, mostly because I have a very good memory and have never really had to rely on my own scribbles to remember important details. As a result, when I do write things down, they never include the important pieces of the conversation, and I end up tidying my desk and finding 100 post-it notes, all inscribed with random half-instructions, like the one I found yesterday that said “April 1st, 1:30 – salamander”. I offer that with no comment, simply because I have no idea what it means.
