Days 3 and 4 Status Report

Accomplishments

  • Totally snagged my own scrummaster, got photos taken, finished Christmas card, and placed my order!
    • This picture of Talia showing off her use of adult toe socks as leggings did not make the cut.

  • Completed and executed on “Christmas research” to surprise Jonathan and Talia:
    • One quarter of our outdoor light stash. I think this is all that's going up this year.

      My trusty supervisor. I wore her for the foliage lights, but my back didn't like the extra weight when bending for the stake lights.

      You might wonder why hanging Christmas lights required “research”. Mainly, it had been a few years since we put up lights (pre-Talia, in fact), so I couldn’t even tell you where the lights were, let alone if they worked.

  • Finished 1 Month page in baby book as well as corresponding blog post.
  • Visited new house:
    • Masonry in progress

  • Made my HEB lasagna meal deal for dinner. It’s the first time Talia cleaned her plate this month.
  • Watched all of Master of None during futile attempts to put Liana to sleep. ┬áIrrationally thrilled that a whole episode and perhaps the entire season hinged on the fig tree analogy from The Bell Jar. I don’t always allude to literature, but when I do, I prefer the fig tree analogy.

Day 5 Goals

  • Attend 6-week follow-up appointment and ask doctor complete list of hypochondriac questions.
  • Clean piano and post ad (does anyone want to buy a grand piano?)
  • Pack a box?

About Sarah

10 years ago, I was a computer science student. 5 years ago, I taught kindergarten. 2 years ago, I trained teachers. Now, I'm a technical writer. I have thoughts about most of these things, but most likely I'll just write about neuroses and why I love Mr. Gatti's pizza. Which might be a neurosis.
