I'm a busy busy bee lately. I say this partly in excuse for not posting much recently.
I've taken on a big non-profit project, which is exciting but extremely time-consuming. The plan is to create a Silicon Valley Parents' Network, much like the one in Berkeley, but more 21st Century. I'm working with Blossom Birth in Palo Alto.
By the way, we're desperately seeking a web developer to help us (for free, of course). If you know someone who'd like to exercise their skills in Ruby on Rails, Zope, or something similar, please pass their name along.
I'm also going back into the working the working world. So...I'm available! Wanna give me some freelance work?
We're redoing our backyard to make it Isaac-friendly: grass, a sandbox, some gravel to eat, along with a patio and herb garden for the adults.
And, last but not least, I'm sort of keeping the household going, with the help of the inimitable Angy. This involves a lot of entertaining the child, feeding the child, putting the child to sleep, and cleaning up after the child. Not to mention grocery shopping, cooking, and errand running. Hmmmm...I'm starting to think I might be a Housewife. Dear me!
Oh, and here's the latest on Isaac, courtesy of his doting dad. To cut to the punch line, Isaac continues to be made of awesome. Although, lately, a little toothy whiny awesome. With a temper (wonder where he got that! Any thoughts, Dear Readers?)
Yup, I admit it. I went stroller shopping today for the Xteenth time, and finally made a decision. It was the 17-lb Graco Metrolite with child snack tray, parent tray & cupholder, and large, easy-load basket (all features which are very important to me) vs. the 13-lb Maclaren Quest, which looks cool. So I chose the Maclaren. I rationalized it by saying that the Maclaren folds down so much smaller than the Graco, which is important since my little Golf has limited trunk space. But really -- and I'm only admitting this to you Dear Reader -- it was because the Maclaren is just way cooler.
