I have been trying to write for several hours (days even) and have had zero luck. There’s just too much to do. Plus, picking up a computer after a week of barely touching it is not like riding a bike. I’m having great difficulty getting back into the swing of things.
There is so much to report. And almost all good. Going to shoot off a few things in random order while the baby bounces and watches some show called Super Why!
We are home from vacation. We had a great time.
I ran every day since there were no yoga classes. (If you run or work at a yoga studio, I might suggest opening one somewhere on Disney’s “campus”. There are a plethora of conferences that take place there and I imagine a lot of people might like it).
Taking Emory around Disney was incredible. He loved getting out. He preferred the people to the rides. He rode It’s a Small World and loved it, absolutely loved it.
We took him on Aladdin and he wasn’t so into that. He made the “I am going to puke face” right away. Poor kid.
Emory loved swimming! Watching TobyJoe and Em swim was a highlight. There are pictures, but they are of the film variety and need to be developed.
I actually lost weight. (This happens every time we go to Disney. I am appalled at the food choices Disney offers its customers, which is to say an unhealthy smorgasbord of crap. Nearly 50% of Disney’s visitors are obese, which makes me think about how much I have put on and have yet to lose. So, yeah. I lost weight. We’ll see if this continues since I can’t run easily here).
Emory has formed a potentially unhealthy attachment to me (and Toby). He had his first ever emotional meltdown while my parents watched him. He was away from us for a couple of hours and in that time he completely lost it. He stopped screaming the moment I walked in the door. Alarming? Entirely. I’m supposed to go away (alone) in May. I am not sure what I’m going to do about this.
The Auto Rail rules. I can’t even begin to sum up how much fun I had onboard this train. I will explain later whenever I have more time.
Friends of ours had their (Brooklyn) daycare shutdown by the fire department. Apparently it wasn’t up to code. They are in trouble as both of them work. They and other parents are scrambling to find alternatives. I learned yesterday that there is a waiting list at most all of the daycares near us. Looks like Emory will not be spending time away from me anytime soon. (Which means his attachment is going to grow even more).
I saw a video of a (Florida?) nanny who tossed a baby aside while watching TV and now I am wary of hiring a nanny.
I did watch America’s Most Wanted while in Orlando.
I did not see any fugitives.
I wore sunscreen.
We saw a house yesterday that we really liked. It is small but really well cared for. We’re not sure what to do about that. It’s in a great neighborhood in the ideal school district. We’ll see where that goes. I’m nervous.
I am not in Austin.
I took a private yoga class with (the talented and lovely) Kyra of Inspired Yoga. I miss her greatly. I miss her smile and the way she teaches. She corrected a plethora of mistakes I have been making. I am excited to perfect my practice.
Soung looks great.
Springing forward is NOT good for babies and even worse for the parents of babies.
Now I must run along and delete the hours and hours worth of TV shows from our DVR that I’ll never have time to watch.
