i’m six and a half weeks pregnant (i think). today was long–teaching wears me out and i have felt faint touches of queasiness come and go during some of my lessons. i’m hoping it will stay that–faint–not what it was last time. bryan and i took zu to the park and bought a little umbrella stroller for cheap at the consignment store–we’re wanting something a little less to lug around, since we’re taking zu to the zoo and doing a little weekend trip to chatty on friday. i’m over the moon about it. we hardly ever do little trips, much less completely spontaneously! but bryan is right–zu will love it, and we could use a weekend out of the house.
so with zu asleep and bryan at work, i’m sitting down to work on revising two poems and sending out a few places. i’ve got a little cup of decaf coffee and a caramel salted biscotti for a treat, and i’m wearing bryan’s hoodie, and the churning of all our happy conveniences–dishwasher and dryer–have a pleasant accomplished-hum, perfect for the end of a long day.
