Recap at 5 in the mawnin.

Friday, February 13, 2009

I skipped a day again. This five per week thing is harder than I thought it'd be. Still, the idea behind it--the spirit of the resolution, if not the letter--was to ensure I kept my blog well up to date, which I think I have been.

Anyway, this post, though dated for Friday, should totally count as Thursday, because it's like 5 in the morning and no one in their right mind is awake and thinking "Hey it's Friday." No. Those in their right minds are asleep, smiling happily and knowing "Ahh it's Thursday night."

Well, I have a lot on my mind, much of which I am not going to say a single thing about.

I will sum up Thursday as best I could, and that's all:

The living room of our cozy bungalow is now mostly baby friendly, and it's become Sam's new playroom, such as it is. (My new favorite overused phrase is "such as it is." Watch for it!) Yesterday, in fact, Sam entertained himself for hours on end, simply rolling around and tugging at things hanging down from the arch of his activity mat. Then, when it was nap time, he started dozing off right there, so I just had to move him to his crib! I guess I didn't really even have to do that, but we're working on getting him accustomed to sleeping in his own room, so I did.

Yesterday, I got confirmation that I will be continuing on as one of the Jake Maddoxes, too, as well as continuing with a couple of other SAB projects I really enjoy. Some new stuff, too, is in the works, for one of my names to do, and I'm excited about those too. But most exciting is that I'll be re-signing my yearlong contract and can let out a sigh, knowing we don't need to make any desperate adjustments to our current financials.

Last night was also my meeting with Aforementioned Editor. It went well. More on that soon, but I will say that the supersecret epilogue is becoming the supersecret prologue, which just hit us both like a wet sock, and is clearly a huge solution, especially since it makes room for the new supersecret epilogue, which is shaping up to be way better.

And now it's Friday. With any luck, the FIL will be feeling better soon, for his own sake, natch, but also for ours: I really want the in-laws to babysit on Sunday so we can go see Coraline in 3D before the Jonas Brothers come along and gross up the 3D screens!

The FIL is still not feeling great, but it was so kind of you to add "for his sake" to your wishes for his health that I have decided to come babysit even if he can't. Maybe Ellen will join me. So one way or another you'll get some much needed movie-with-Beth time. Congratulations on the new contract!

Thanks, Susan. That would of course be great. But I'll keep hoping Tom feels better; I'd hate for him to have to be all alone in his weakened state.

And thanks for the congrats!

Sam wants Grandpa to come too. And Harry will feel REALLY BAD if Grandpa (his best friend) doesn't come to see him on his SIXTH BIRTHDAY.

You're going out WITHOUT HARRY on his 6th birthday? Times have changed for poor Harry...

last year we went out without him on his birthday. when we came home, he'd puked all over the rug. i cleaned it up (3 months pregnant, mind you!). so anyway, he's used to it.
