Although times around here are never dull, I haven't felt like I've had much to say lately. I've also been enjoying not being on the computer (for fun) as much.
I've been working hard on one of two papers I have to write to finish last semester's classes. My profs were very understanding last semester (when I up and gave BIRTH in the middle of the semester) and actually gave me until the end of this semester (May) to finish my final papers. However, I FULLY intend to finish them well before that. I'm almost done with one; it's really slow going with my beautiful girl to take care of, but with the help of my parents I'm getting some work done during the day, and I also stay up later than Eliza at night and work on my paper on my laptop in bed. I'll be honest: it's difficult. I'm a full-time SAHM right now, but my mind has to shift into academic-mode to write these papers. It's a strange dichotomy, and - I gotta say - I'm not a huge fan. I really feel for women who must return to work after only 3 months (or sometimes less) maternity leave - that must be even more difficult.
I recently mentioned (I think?) that I joined a local moms' group. I've gone to three play dates so far, and aside from a few women I wouldn't exactly seek out as friends outside of this group... it's been a good experience. I'm glad I joined, it gives us something different to do during the weekdays, and it's fun talking to other new moms. Here's a picture of the babies from this week's group:
So, there's my fairly uninteresting update! But HEY, after the countless bad news, awful, sad, depressing posts in my 252 post history on this blog, uninteresting is FINE with me!
