I'm Back

It has been months and months since I've felt like writing. They've been hard months of pregnancy and uncertainty and exhaustion.

Lately, though, I've been itching to write something. So just to catch you all up (is anyone even there anymore?):

  • Little Dude (H) was born on Sept. 13. He was not inclined to come out on his own, so we forced him along.
  • H is wonderful. He is the sweetest little thing I could have ever imagined. He rarely cries; he sleeps fairly well; he smiles and laughs all the time. I'm in love, again.
  • I have no job prospects, and I'm surprisingly ok with that. I defended my dissertation in August, and while it's sad that no one, besides my committee, will ever read the thing (There will be no Book without a Job), I'm happy to be done with it. I'll deposit it sometime in Jan., and call it a day.
  • J has been having some health problems with his Crohns. He'll have surgery for it next week.
  • We're waiting (hopefully) to see where J gets a job. He better get a job. If not, we're kind of screwed.
  • If he doesn't get a job, we'll move somewhere fun. Ohio is not fun.
  • Did I mention that I'm in love with little H?
