Yes, I've disappeared from this blog here for over a week, and for good reason.Hey, did you know that babies need schedules? Indeed, they thrive on schedules? Who knew!? (Apparently everyone but me...) So I've been trying to get EK on a schedule for the past few weeks, and I think it's starting to work. She sleeps through the night AND she takes naps during the day. What the whaaaat?
Anyway, all that aside, I'm going to make an honest effort to start blogging again.
Don't you want to know what life is like trying to repatriate to your home country? Aren't you dying to know the goings-on of my day? I know you all do (not) and don't worry, I'll deliver up some gems on a silver platter.
Like take today, for example. We woke up at 8:30am, tried to put EK down for a nap around 10, but was more successful when I tried again around noon. She slept for 2.5 hours, then I went to Dunkin Donuts where that fuck behind the counter put cream and sugar into my iced coffee when I specifically asked for milk and one sugar. That son of a bitch. And that's about all I did today. Oh, wait. I also danced around my room to 'Statesboro Blues' by the Allman Brothers when ZLX was playing a classic rock block this evening.
EK is hitting all her milestones nicely. She's a little bit raspy these days and teething like a lunatic, which is awesome. The SJC is in New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup, and the time difference is a bit of a killer.
In other news, I've been waxing nostalgic about Dublin, mostly likely because the weather today reminds me of Dublin (60s and rainy.) While I miss my pals and having car, I have to say that it's very convenient to just jump in the car and go to Babies R Us or Magic Beans on a whim to get a teething ring or what have you.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to look in to how I can make some friends. My Mom suggested going to the library. We'll see how this all pans out.
