A decision has not been…

A decision has not been made yet. I told Kevin last night when I was going to bed that I really was fine either way -- and in fact, if it was me being offered the job at Oxford (different school than last time), I'd probably take it. Sadly, Oxford is not offering me a job. He was going to think about it some more. In theory, we have until the 15th to actually apply for the job, but it'd be better if we told the folks now if we're interested or not. We'll see what he says when he wakes up.

Today, we're trying out babysitters. Katarina is here this morning until noon; I'm going to have a peaceful breakfast (no Kavi howling for me just when my eggs are coming off the griddle), send a few e-mails, and then run a few errands before Kevin wakes up, since he'll be taking the car in when he goes to teach. Melissa will be here this afternoon, during which time, I plan to primarily work on finalizing my syllabus for the Asian American lit. class. I promised Stacy that she'd have the book orders today, lord willin' and the creek don't rise, so that's the big plan.

This evening, if I have the energy and if Kevin is up for watching Kavi, I'm going to head up to Lakeview to join the Chicago mom bloggers for a dinner. It'd be nice to take a few hours and get to know some of them better. Which makes me realize, guiltily, that it's been a while since I posted anything. Hmm....time to come up with something interesting mommy-wise. I think I've complained enough about Kavi's sleeping habits. :-)

Although, speaking of which, she didn't wake me up today! I woke up at 7, on my own, feeling well rested, and when I went into her room, she was awake, but lying peacefully in her crib, staring at the ceiling. Maybe we need to get her a mobile. (We had one, but took it down for some reason, and I can't remember why...) But the point was, she was not howling. It's so nice not to be woken up by howls. I have no idea how she was for Kevin last night, so maybe she was a demon baby until he went to bed. It'll be interesting to hear...

Oh, we made a Facebook page for DesiLit, and so I ended up joining Facebook. I'm not sure what to do with it, but there it is.
